Totally Balmy about Pommade Divine Balm
Have you ever had that feeling that you have just uncovered a miracle, and then later discovered actually you are about 200 years too late? Well that’s what happened to me when it came to the Pommade Divine balm. It seems that the whole world has gone totally balmy for a balm. There are Lip balms, face balms, exfoliating balms, cleansing balms and even nipple balms! So I ask myself What exactly is a balm? Okay I didn’t really ask myself I actually asked Google and from reading various articles I can conclude that a balm is a cream, gel, liquid solution of some sort that is used to heal or calm the skin.
Pommade Divine Nature’s Remedy Balm – based on a 200 year old formula the original potion was first created by the Royal Family’s chemist Butler’s and Co. Two hundred years on the balm has been used to heal many grazes scrapes and bites etc of all walks of life, not just the royals. Made up from a variety of natural ingredients, essential oils and scents of clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. The balm not only smells great but has built a long lived reputation for it’s antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s benefits include: intensive soothing relief from symptoms of peeling or flaking due to minor burns, abrasions, scrapes and bruises. A deep moisturising protectant for dry, itchy skin, cuticle care, rough heels and chapped lips and hands. It also reduces the likelihood for scarring and can be used by all the family.
Userbility – 5/5. It’s in a pot and it’s a thick balm so there is no chance of you accidentally dropping it. I simply just used my finger to scrape a bit out and rub it on my skin. Please note the consistency is thicker than that of Vaseline so don’t go digging a big chunk out, less is more folks! Even though the formula is thick it isn’t sticky. I found applying a small amount to specific dry skin areas at night worked the best as the scent is quite a strong one, but not in the tiger balm eye watering way. The smell itself is very strong – you really can small the Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Cloves, which I think works perfectly for what Pommade Divine is, as we don’t all want to smell of roses! It really does remind you of something home brewed that has probably been based down the family tree.
Packaging – 4.5/5. I love the jar, it’s perfect for sitting on my dressing table but not so great for carrying around in my handbag, as that jar is heavy! The only reason I gave the packaging 4.5 was because I would like to be able to buy a smaller travel sized jar as well.
Value for Money 5/5. BARGAIN! show me a balm that does all of that for £19.80.
Verdict – If I ever get left on a desert island…. or had to pick my one beauty product that I would give everything up for, It has to be Pommade Divine.
