Decleor Cica-Botanic Balm | Product Review

I have always heard great things about Decleor products but up until a few months ago I had never tried any of their products. For my first Decleor product I decided to try the Cica-Botanic Balm as I was intrigued by It's claims and benefits. 

100% Natural Cica-Botanic Balm Description:

"Cocoon skin in the soothing texture of Decleor Cica-Botanic Balm, a multi-purpose essential oil enriched balm that will soothe, repair and protect skin. ... The inclusion of geranium essential oil will cocoon your skin with its protective properties, strengthening your skin and repairing it.
100% of consumers found their skin was nourished and extreme dry patches were relieved
93% found their skin was less irritated and more comfortable."

The key ingredients in this balm are wonderful and this is to be expected by Decleor, an aromatherapy brand. Some of the main ingredients include Centella Asiactica which is known to reduce skin irritation, Eucalyptus Essential Oil for healing, Rosemary Essential Oil for hydration, Niaouli Essential Oil for soothing and Geranium Essential Oil for protection.

I have been using this product for a month, post cleanse and tone. This is a multi purpose product that you can not only use of the face but the body too. This balm can be used on dry skin almost anywhere. Including but not limited to face, lips, cuticles, dry heels, elbows and more. 
This balm is very oily and melts in your hands, I find the texture of the balm to be too much for day time so I've been sticking to using it in the evenings. When I wake up in the morning my skin feels soft and fully hydrated. A product like this, in my opinion is one that you have to stick with as It's definitely grown on me after seeing the improvement in the condition of my skin. Due to the ingredients in the balm it does have a strong scent and one that can be either loved or hated by the consumer. I personally enjoy the scent and find it very therapeutic and relaxing. When I apply the product I genuinely feel like I am having a spa treatment and to me it feels like a treat. 

Who is this product best for?

I believe that all skin types could use this product but it's especially ideal for those with sensitive skin who suffer with eczema or psoriasis. Testing new products when you have sensitive skin can be difficult as It's important to look for key ingredients designed for delicate complexions. This balm is nourishing and specifically designed for drier skin to soothe and hydrate. Due to it's lightweight texture I believe most skin types would suit this balm, perhaps more so on winter evenings. For those with post inflammatory pigmentation from acne it's fantastic at soothing redness, irritation and for healing the skin.  

Overall, I am thoroughly enjoying using this product and can feel an improvement in the texture and appearance of my skin. Have you tried any Decleor products? If so, what are your favourites? Let's chat in the comments below!
