For anyone with very dry skin or who occasionally gets dry skin or dry patches or sore skin this stuff is incredible. I'm not sure if it's meant to be used as a daily moisturiser, I mean if it works for you then why not keep it up, however I keep and use it as an occasional cure all. I get lots of sensitive patches, as the weather is changing I get very dry around my nose and mouth, and especially in the winter I feel like my skin is sore if I've been outside filming all day. Whenever any of these things happen this is the balm I use and it works so well. I've had this balm for ages and I was genuinely shocked I hadn't already blogged about it before, I rely on it that much (along with this Viridan product). 

Blended for all skin types that require nourishment it has a calm and soothing rose geranium aroma, it contains rosehip and pomegranate oils to refine the skin and gentle blue chamomile and lavender help calm the skin and redness. It's a purely natural and organic product (certified 100% organic by the Soil Association) and formulated without any synthetic fragrances, preservatives or artificial colourings, so it's unlikely to react badly with anyone. Like all Viridian products they are highly ethical products and against animal testing.

At first application it feels very greasy but it absorbs so fast it is perfectly suitable to use in the morning under makeup. I know I say this a lot but I can't stress it enough in this instance.. you really need only a very small amount, even when slathering on at night to calm a red face. A 50ml pot sounds quite expensive for £28 but even if you use it daily it should last months and months, I use it a handful of times a month and after a year I've barely scratched the surface. For people with dry, sensitive or sore skin or redness or unexplained rashes, I can't recommend this enough.
