BALM perfection. How can you dip into this? I cringed when my finger put a hole in it.

I love the golden honey color. Reminds me of a warm summer afternoon.

So what is a balm? See how flat the top is? This is a classic trait of a balm, which is a cream that is very thick. When it’s this thick, there’s little or no water.

Balms are typically for very dry skin, lips, ointments, and cleansing.

This happens to be a cleansing balm by Darphin made of several oils (marula, rosewood, sage, and ylang ylang). It’s the same one that appeared in yesterday’s Cleansing Oils post.
