Green Leaves Face Balm | Earth Wise Beauty
Violet-scented balm for dry skin with acne
This potent balm was originally created after we received countless requests for an organic, super-gentle, healing, regulating acne potion. The violet-leaf-scented fruits of our labor: a lovely, green-tinted balm in a virgin coconut–virgin jojoba oil base that is antimicrobial, fully absorbent, and has a juicy, refreshing, breathable feel. This is a pure, simple, lighter-weight balm, ideal for those who prefer straightforward yet effective skincare formulas. The scent is green, leafy, and grassy in a wonderfully invigorating way, from that exquisite violet leaf absolute plus French lavender.
This waterless vegan formula heals and prevents acne with thyme, smooths and revitalizes the skin with rosemary verbenone, regulates oil secretion with clementine leaf and coconut oil, and reduces the appearance of aging with lavender and violet. Violet leaf is a fascinating plant that acts both as an anti-acne and an anti-aging ingredient.
While this oil is not at all drying (or irritating) in the way many anti-acne products are, the coconut oil in it makes it very gently astringent. If you have oily skin areas, they will stay more matte and over time become more balanced in terms of oil production. If your skin is on the dry side but still acne-prone, you can use this oil just on the problem spots, or try using the oil as the first layer and following with a noncomedogenic moisturizer as the second layer.
This has been my new go-to for my hormonal breakouts. It is a spot-treatment pro!
For acne, acne-prone, oily, combination, sensitive, and normal to dry skin types.
