I always keep a set of products on my bedside table. They vary from my most loved skincare products to the ones that I use on a daily basis before getting some shut eye. Among my favourite hand creams, La Roche Posay‘s Barrier Repairing Cream and The Body Shop‘s Glazed Apple Hand Cream, there is a new product which I’m currently loving. It’s the NYX All Over Balm.
Let’s start with the packaging. It’s the most adorable balm I have ever come across. Instead of the common round shape that balms tend to favour, this NYX beauty comes in a square tin. It’s still the perfect size to put in your handbag or leave discretely on your bedside table.
The All Over Balm comes infused in three natural oils; Argan Oil, Coconut Oil and Macadamia Nut Oil. The scent is not overpowering but gives you that slight whiff of the flavour whenever you open the tin. It claims to be a multi-purpose balm. I like using it as a lip balm best but I’ve also tried using it on my elbows, waking up to a pleasant baby-skin feel.
The consistency of it is quite soft so it’s not hard to pick up the product. It feels really good on the skin but it is rather oily. I don’t mind that oily texture on my lips as I feel it gives them that extra bit of moisture. However, if you’re using it all over your body, make sure to let it dry first before putting on your clothes!
My lips and skin definitely feel smoother and more radiant after using this balm. I believe it’s not more than €5 so it really is a bargain product!
NYX All Over Balm can be found at Roseberry, Valletta.
