Do you have winter-challenged skin? Botanicals to the rescue!

Botanicals Nourishing Face Balm Rose & Camellia

With my dry skin I have to be very careful what I buy and of course what I use. I try to opt for natural products in order to protect my already sensitive skin and not cause any more damage to it. Natural products are great but most of the time they share one big downsize – they smell awful. When I was offered to try Botanicals Nourishing Face Balm Rose & Camellia my first thought was “I wonder if it will smell like roses”.

To my huge surprise yes, it does!

It smells divine. Normally I prefer fragrant free face care products but this one smells truly amazing.

Botanicals Nourishing Face Balm Rose & Camellia is 100% natural and made from 89% organic ingredients. If you want to know what’s inside you can find the full ingredients list here.

It comes in a dark brown jar-like glass container. Again not my ideal form of packaging for a face cream but due to the texture it is the only option for it.

So what is so different about the texture?

Well, did you ever use cold pressed coconut oil? I bought some for doing baby massages and it looks very similar to that. Basically it looks like a solid white fatty mass. You can’t just scoop it with the tip of your finger; I use my long nails to lift a little bit from the jar. So, then you have this solid hard mass on your finger nail but as soon as it touches your skin it starts to melt, just like a snowball kept in your hand for too long.

Once melted it turns into liquid oil which is just amazing! In liquid form the aroma is even more intense and it spreads with ease. Because it becomes so runny you only need a little tiny bit of it. When I tried it for the first time I scooped more or less the same amount as I would do with my usual face cream and I actually had enough to apply into my face, hands, neck and my lower legs…I was simply running out of skin to put it on, it is so efficient.

Despite the things (smell and a packaging) which would normally be a minus for me, when talking about face care products, I totally love Botanicals Nourishing Face Balm Rose & Camellia. It is perfect in every way and it does wonders to my skin. It leaves it soft, well moisturized and feeling extremely luxurious. Despite its oil like texture it absorbs quickly into the skin. If I had some sort of rating system I would give it 10/10 easily!

Botanicals Nourishing Face Balm Rose & Camellia is priced at £27.95 for a 50g jar. If you wish to order one there is a special £5 off offer for all orders placed in November. Just type NOVOFFER (case sensitive) once you get to the check-out stage.

  1. I’ve never experienced winter but I heard some skin concerns because of such weather. The closest I got to winter is staying on top of a mountain where it was super cold. Boy, did my skin feel dry that time!

  2. I do have winter challenged skin and at that time its super hard for me to manage dry flaky skin. This balm looks super amazing x

  3. I have winter challenged skin.. in fact my skin feels challenged throughout the year 🙁 combination-dry. This one looks so cool.. But i am not sure if it s available here at my place.. Nice post.. giglove

  4. My skin is terrible – especially during the colder months – since having my two boys. Very dry and sensitive. This sounds perfect, and I love the simple packaging too! Thank you for the review!

  5. This sounds right up my street, in both texture and scent. I love balms, perfect for Winter skin. And rose is probably my favourite skincare ingredient, not just for the smell but, naturally, it’s extremely hydrating. Great review. Tx

  6. As I am getting older my skin is getting more and more sensitive to certain things! I really need a natural product that is not going to make my skin break out so thank you for sharing this!
