A Pony Called Steve Wonder Balm
[productsample] It’s hard to tell whether Steve the pony in question is fact or fiction but who cares? It’s a great name for anything – even a cleansing balm.
Providing you have no sensitivities to the ingredients – pomegranate oil, moringa oil, sweet orange, lemon, mandarin and grapefruit oils, and you enjoy a cleansing balm, this shapes up to be quite the find. It’s a tiny tin but you don’t need to use a lot at any one time, and the scent is minimal – if anything it smells a bit ‘raw’ rather than the fruity notes I was expecting.
The difference between this balm and others I’ve tried is that it’s somewhat stiffer until it warms up in your hand – then it turns into a smooth, emollient balm that more or less eats make up off your face. You do need a warm flannel to remove to give an exfoliating effect as well as to effectively take the balm away (and for every balm and flannel set you buy, the brand plants a tree). I found another use for this balm too – if you find your complexion dries out after you’ve been in the shower or after exercise, a very thin layer of balm gives a waterproofing effect that completely eliminates that issue. I know this after applying the balm and then stepping into the shower without a flannel at hand – the balm stayed put under the water and my skin stayed supple!
Although it’s a little pot (larger ones are on their way), it’s perfect for travel and for gifts (stocking fillers perhaps). It’s a quirky little thing that I’m pleased to have – it’s earned a place in my beauty cupboard for more than just a skin softening and protecting cleanse – pop it on dry places (elbows, knees, hands) and enjoy the supple feel that follows.
