The container slogan is 'All purpose balm for all your bits' and claims that it restores, soothes, protects, relieves and moisturizes and that there is nothing that this
petroleum free balm can't do. This feels like a mix between a lotion and a vaseline type product, for lack of a better description. The difference being that this actually absorbs well & doesn't leave that greasy film sitting on top of your skin.
The other thing I love are the ingredients!
There are only three ingredients in this fabulous balm, jojoba seed oil, candelilla wax and rose flower wax. There is no real scent to this as there is no added fragrance, it smells quite 'natural food store-ish'. Don't you wish you could describe scents as well as I can? It's a gift really.
I have not used it as an all over moisturizer, because it really isn't intended for that. I've just used it on those problem dry patches, as well as my elbows, and it does a fabulous job. A fabulous job that lasts, this isn't just a temporary fix for a few short hours either, this really makes a difference on my skin.
But this is where it gets interesting. The one area that is always a problem for me are my heels. I do my best to keep my heels soft & moisturized but I am constantly struggling with dry heels, despite foot files, pedicures, scrubs, etc. That all changed with this little balm. This has completely transformed the bottom of my feet! I have never had anything work so well on my heels. After I get out of the shower (and use my foot file or pumice stone), I put some of this on the bottom of my feet and then put on my socks and that's it. Soft, moisturized feet! I do this now about 2-3x per week and will likely need to do it less and less as the balm does it's work. It's pretty amazing!
This cost $12.95CDN for a 45gram tin. As you see from the above picture, if you bring back 5 empty pots you get a Lush Fresh Face Mask for free. This is now the second tin for Mr. J and I now have my own. We are now both Ultrabalm converts and won't go without this great little balm. I'd highly recommend you try it! You can purchase this at any Lush store or online.
Have any of you tried Lush's ultrabalm? Do you think it's the best balm for all your bits? Mr. J loves saying that part.
