Most of us are familiar with lip balms but not so familiar with what a face or body balm is, or how to use it. The concept might be new to you or maybe you just haven’t given it a try yet…we highly recommend you do!
Balms, although small and compact in size, are big in benefits. They’re versatile, convenient, and could be the next game-changer in your beauty routine!
What Is A Balm?
Balms are similar to moisturizers in that they help hydrate, nourish and protect the skin, but are different in formulation, texture and consistency. Balms are usually formulated with a mix of oils, waxes and butters and generally do not contain any water, and therefore they don’t need a preservative. They are more occlusive then your regular moisturiser meaning they are solid in texture, but will break down when massaged into the skin. Due to their thicker consistency and higher concentration many people find a little goes a long way and they can last longer than a general moisturizer.
Benefits Of A Balm?
Balms have many benefits for the skin, but it is their convenience that sets them apart. They are the number one on-the-go beauty product. Balms are best used to moisturize and nourish your skin anywhere, anytime. They glide onto your skin easily and their convenient and effective twist-up packaging makes them the perfect mess-free, leak-proof hand bag alternative to lotions and creams.
Being more dense in form and consistency, balms are primarily known for providing a deep hydration and a protective barrier for the skin, however they can also be a great option to treat and repair skin concerns. Depending on the active ingredients included in the formulation some organic balms can benefit the skin with anti-aging effects and skin regeneration for soft, smooth skin.
When and How To Use A Balm?
You can introduce a balm into your skincare routine at any time and as mentioned above, especially for convenience or a deeper hydrating treatment.
Balms are most often used to heal, soothe or smooth skin. If you have dry, dehydrated skin use a balm daily to heal and prevent further moisture loss. For sensitive skin, use balms when necessary to nourish and repair the skin. Balms are also best used for those extra dry areas such as the hands, elbows, knees, feet and heels. A balm is great for all joint areas where you may experience deeper cracks in the skin or where you may rub often.
Both the Noni Glow Face Balm & Noni Glow Body Balm are super hydrating and perfect for protecting your skin from the drying effects of the winter elements such as central heating and harsh cold winds. They provide a nourishing and protective benefits to the top layers of your skin. They also work well in the summer to protect against sun damage and heal sunburns or heat rashes.

How To Use A Face Balm
Our Noni Glow Face Balm provides your skin with antioxidants and essential fatty acids. It contains Certified Organic Coconut and Rosehip Oils combined with Noni and Calendula Extracts to provide nourishment and restore radiance to your skin.
We recommend you apply our organic face balm to clean, dry skin. Start by removing all the dirt and grime with a cleanser, then applying any treatment products such as masks or exfoliators. Spritz a mist to help tone and balance pH levels, apply any serums, and then apply your certified organic face balm to hydrate.
You can also apply a face balm throughout the day to top up hydration and add a dewy glow or highlight your features, such as your cheek and brow bones.
How To Use A Body Balm
Our Noni Glow Body Balm is a rich, rejuvenating, whole body treatment that contains Certified Organic Noni Extract, Coconut Oil and Cupuacu Butter to provide intense hydration for glowing skin all over.
Ideally apply the organic body balm after a bath or shower and exfoliation. The Body Balm is in a stick form that you can glide all over for easy application. Ensure you rub in, especially in drier areas and joints.
You can re-apply onto your feet and legs to give that perfect sheen at any time of day. Makeup artists love using the Noni Glow Body Balm for shoots as hydrated, glistening skin is great for camouflaging uneven complexion, dry spots and pigmentation.
Why Miranda Loves Balms
“Besides being packed full of antioxidants and essential fatty acids the Noni Glow Face Balm and Noni Glow Body Balm are the perfect on-the-go moisturizers. I didn’t want to carry a traditional liquid moisturizer in my handbag, so I created these compact balms. They’re a quick and easy way to moisturize wherever you are. Being a balm there’s also no risk of spillage in your bag, making them great for travelling. If my skin is ever feeling uncomfortable, dry or itchy on a flight I’ll apply the Noni Glow Body Balm, and I’ll use the Noni Glow Face Balm as a cleansing balm and organic lip balm.”

“I keep the Noni Glow Body Balm in my handbag at all times, it’s great as a spot treatment. During my last two pregnancies and while my skin started to expand, the Noni Glow Body Balm was an essential. I’d use it on my belly, breasts and hips to help keep my skin hydrated and smooth, as I felt those areas needed a little more TLC. The Noni Glow Body Balm is also great as a foot treatment and before an event I’ll apply it, it makes your legs so gleamy. I’m always like: Wow!”
