Champneys Skin Comforting Miracle Balm

The Champneys Spa Treatments Skin Comforting Miracle Balm is a repurchase of mine and I love this product so much that I decided to review it when I bought a new one recently.

It’s a beautiful little product that has many uses and has been a skin-care staple of mine for many years now!

It’s a balm that can be used for dry areas of skin to soften it and also sooths with it’s caring ingredients.

It’s made with ‘100% natural ingredients’ including; shea butter, sweet almond oil, beeswax and cocoa butter to name a few.

These help to make dry areas feel silky soft and it also contains geranium, chamomile and lavender to help sooth and calm the skin.

Sometimes very dry skin needs more than just a good moisturiser to keep dryness at bay, and this balm really helps keep any areas prone to dryness silky soft.

It can be used on areas such as; lips, heels, elbows and cuticles, as these are the areas most prone to dryness and which need some extra nourishment to keep hydrated and soft.

Although you only need a very thin layer (so the 15ml pot lasts ages), I still just use mine for my lips, cuticles and around my nose and a little on my chin too – rather than using it on heels and elbows.

These are the areas I bought it for to use on any way, but I imagine it works just as good on heels and elbows but I just don’t use it for that.

It’s amazing at keeping stubborn dry areas soft and smooth, especially around my nose and in the centre of my chin where it tends to feel drier, especially through winter.

I really do notice when I haven’t been using this for a few days, so I tend to apply this at night just in the areas that need it.

It’s also lovely to use on the lips too; it really softens them and feels lovely and smooth and is a great preparation before applying lipstick, enabling it to glide on smoothly and evenly. (I always prep with this before applying a red or bright lip).

I use it on my cuticles now and then when I’m spending time doing my nails properly and it really does smooth out cuticles, getting rid of any harsh, dry areas around the nails making them look like you’ve had a manicure at a spa!

It’s much more intense than using a hand cream but I don’t use it on my nails daily as I just forget and it’s quicker to use hand cream – but like I said, it’s great to use on your nails if you are having a pamper session and great as a weekly nail treatment.

I sometimes apply it all around my nails and cuticles and then wear those moisturising hand gloves that you wear while cream soaks in – not the most attractive look but it really works!

The texture is smooth, silky and glides on the skin but make sure you massage it in otherwise it can look shiny – but it doesn’t feel greasy or sticky.

I use it at night mostly anyway, so just leave a thin layer to absorb into the skin, but when using it during the day it just needs a gentle massage and it will absorb quite quickly.

I love Champneys Skin Comforting Miracle Balm and always repurchase it when it runs out. Although I mainly use it at night time, I like to keep it in my handbag for convenience and to have it on hand for when my skin needs it, as it’s an instant relief for dry areas and is amazing at softening the lips –  I wouldn’t be without it!

Have you ever used any Champneys products before?
