Beauty Review: Mary Elizabeth Spearmint and Tea Tree Nuture Balm

Mary Elizabeth Bodycare is a family run venture.  Cecilia started the company when she was left with damaged skin after her skin cancer treatment. As an aromatherapist herself, she used her exceptional knowledge and started the company with the assistance of her daughter.

I was lucky enough to try the Mary Elizabeth Spearmint and Tea Tree Nurture Balm*and it is just delicious! Packed full of vitamin enriched oils; this multi-purpose balm can be used on your ‘lips, nails, hands, heels – anywhere’. I paid particular attention to my lips and nails and saw results instantly. The balm works to smooth and soothe the skin, be it perfectly healthy or damaged; this is a product for everyone and a true all-rounder. It enriches, moisturises and protects hardworking skin through every season. Mary Elizabeth claims that it also promotes strength and growth in the nails so I am constantly applying it, and have every faith!

 What I loved the most was the cute silver tin the balm was contained in. Mary Elizabeth is an eco-friendly company that promote simple, stylish products with no excess packaging. The spearmint scent is divine. I have always adored mint balms and this tamer alternative (not the usual peppermint situation) really does it for me!

 All the ingredients in Mary Elizabeth Bodycare products are natural and organic. The balm contains a mix of active ingredients and essential oils. The use of the active ingredient organic shea butter is believed to have properties that promote cell growth while the olive wax leaves the skin feeling conditioned and smooth.

The balm is also packed full of vitamin rich oils including: avocado, meadowfoam, apricot kernel, hemp seed, spearmint, peppermint and tea tree. This array of vitamins enhances the skin, easily absorbed and ridding you of dull skin. My lips felt plump, moisturised and any signs of dry skin were banished! It truly is a product for all skin types, promoting elasticity and penetrating the deeper layers. The addition of Gamma Lineolic Acid tames and balances oily skin, while the tea tree works as an antiseptic aiding skin conditions.

This 15ml tin is £6.50 and a bargain considering how versatile and luxurious the product is. This is definitely one of my firm beauty favourites and it has not left my makeup bag or lips since!

Have you tried any Mary Elizabeth Bodycare products? Do you like to use balms?
