Nourish London Antioxidant Multi-Tasking Super Balm

(ad/gifted) Like most people I can appreciate a decent multi-purpose product and the newly launched Antioxidant Multi-Tasking Super Balm from Nourish is a great one! I'm already a fan of Nourish (you can read my posts about some of their other products here ) so I was pretty excited to try the brand's latest offering, the Antioxidant Multi-Tasking Super Balm.

Nourish London Antioxidant Multi-Tasking Super Balm

The 100 percent vegan balm is super rich and luxurious and features a unique formula that helps to strengthen and protect the skin from free radical damage. The formula contains omega-rich oils as well as a patented French Marine Algae extract to help tone, firm and smooth.
Here's a little overview of the key ingredients in the Antioxidant Multi-Tasking Super Balm including their functions:
Antioxidant Tea Oil - Protects the natural lipid layer on the skin
Macadamia Oil with Linoleic Acid - balances sebum production in combo skin and helps to supplement lower sebum levels in more mature skin
Oil Soluble Vitamin C - to aid the production of collagen
Tocopherol, Vitamin E - to improve moisture levels
Borage and Pumpkin Seed Oil - to help reduce sensitivities
Bisabolol and Ginger - to help prevent damage from free radicals
Kale Extract -a 'detoxifying' antioxidant that helps to protect against pollution
Patented French Marine Algae extract - a protective antioxidant that (as mentioned), helps to tone and firm.
In a nutshell, the balm is omega-rich and full of protective antioxidants, so it's generally going to be doing great things for your skin, no matter how you choose to use it, which leads me to my next point.
The Super Balm is designed to be used in three different ways; as a cleanser, as a mask and as an intensive moisturising treatment.
To use as a cleanser, massage a small amount onto damp skin (though I use balms on dry skin too), dampen the organic face cloth that comes with the balm and use it to gently remove the product. The face cloth also provides a gentle exfoliation as you remove the balm, leaving the skin with a beautiful glowing finish. These days I always double cleanse, whether I'm wearing foundation/SPF or not and so far have used the balm as the first cleanse and can confirm that it does a brilliant job removing makeup.
I am yet to use the balm as a mask, but if you fancy an intensely nourishing treatment, just apply a thin layer to the face and leave it for 20 minutes before removing. Alternatively you can leave it on overnight.
As a moisturiser, I have used the Super Balm on my knees, elbows and hands and was pleasantly surprised by how well it absorbed. As a moisturiser, it left my dry bits feeling and looking smooth and soft, so it's particularly good for getting your limbs ready for the warmer weather.

Overall I'm really pleased with the Nourish London Antioxidant Multi-Tasking Super Balm. As well as its multi-use formula and plethora of excellent ingredients, the balm also smells beautiful - quite herbal and relaxing and I can really smell the rosemary and geranium oils that also feature in the ingredients. It's also worth mentioning that the 50ml of product is housed in a heavy glass jar, so it definitely has a luxurious feel to it.
If you're keen to give the Antioxidant Multi-Tasking Super Balm a try for yourself, it's available at for £32.
