When I come across a brilliant little beauty buy like Rodial Stemcell Super-food Glam Balm Multi (take a breath); it often becomes as close to me as my iPhone. This means that at any time during the day – or night – it will be found either in my pocket, clutched in my hand, on my desk, or safe in my bag de jour.
Wherever it is, it will be in close proximity and never out of my sight!
Why do I love it so? As you know, most of my biggest beauty loves are multi purpose, time saving and easy use and this is no exception. Having recently been revamped from ‘glam balm’ to ‘glam balm MULTI’ its bumf says it has ‘been redesigned with with High tech Alp Rose Stem Cells and 3D Hyaluronic Filling Spheres to increase cell vitality and quickly reduce the look of fine lines.’
This, plus its skin protecting vitamin C, smoothing salicylic acid and softening shea butter means I use it as a deep hydration boost at night, on nude lips as a salve or as a glossy top coat over lipstick, to nourish hands and cuticles and as a touch of sheen over lids. I even mix it with a not-quite-dewy-enough-for-me foundation.
As a comparison, it’s a less balmy balm than Elizabeth Arden’s best selling Eight Hour Cream – I think it feels more like a mixture of moisturising cream with just a touch of waxy balm, if you know what I mean?
It worked particularly well on my sun drenched skin while I was away in Spain recently and it will take pride of place in my cosmetics bag on my girls weekend away (coming soon!).
As Rodial say, it has 100 different uses making it your handbag beauty must-have with a difference! And I really couldn’t have said it better 🙂
It costs £35 from here and I think it’s totally worth it.
