Balmy Brilliance – Kahina Fez Hand and Body Balm*

Kahina Giving Beauty unleashes an all-healing golden balm that magically erases all of our dry skin woes.

The Fez Hand and Body Balm contains Kahina’s own signature Fez fragrance in ample doses. An intoxicating blend of essential oils, including rose, bergamot, ylang ylang, geranium, patchouli, sandalwood, clove, cumin and rosemary combine to create an aromatherapeutic experience that aids in relieving stress and calming nerves. Upon application, there is an almost warming sensation that soothes both the mind, and body instantaneously.

This overachieving moisturizer aims at healing, soothing, and calming weather-ravaged hands, as well as our driest bits (think elbows, heels, and knees). A little goes a long way, as it spreads with ease. It’s a seasonal must have, as dry skin doesn’t stand a chance against this brilliant balm.

As a hand moisturizer, this balm touches perfection. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave behind a dreaded sticky-palm situation. I’ve personally struggled with painful eczema on my hands. After only a few days of use, the Fez Hand and Body Balm completely cured my skin dilemma, as it immediately calmed the dreaded painful itch.

Dreamy Picks October 2013

Happy Halloween lovelies…

Halloween is a holiday that I personally can’t get into. So, instead I am posting my October Favorites. A combination of new loves, as well as some old reliable products have been making regular appearances in my routine this month. The cold has come to stay, making my skin drier than usual. That, along with a recent bout of eczema has made me reach for skin-soothing balms and oils.
