A blend of protective antioxidant rich oils and clearing botanicals. Formulated for those who need to balance dry or combination skin and need extra support for breakouts. The rich and very firm textured balm turns into a lightweight oil on contact and absorbs to an almost-matte finish.
•Daily moisturizer for most skin types
•Balances dry/combination skin
•Supports healing during active breakouts
Formally known as the Balancing Whipped Oil and previously the Aer Blue Tansy + Babassuu Balancing Whipped Oil
Recent Formula Adjustment: As a result of a change in Live Botanical’s specially processed babbasu they needed to make a small adjustment. The new version is slightly more protective of transdermal water loss given the addition of organic, regionally sourced rice bran wax. This also provides a more powdery, matte finish.
This product is good for:
•After cleansing and misting, melt the oil by making circular a motion over the balm with your fingers until you have enough product to cover your face
•Press a thin layer onto the skin focusing on areas that need the most hydration - it should absorb quickly with an almost-matte finish
•A little goes a long way!
For dry skin, apply after your facial oil or moisturizer.
For oily skin, this works as a moisturizing night treatment 2-3x times a week. If you’re looking for something to treat active breakouts, we suggest the Skin Repair Balm.
Notes: Keep away from heat and direct light. If the product liquifies, cool in the fridge for about 15 minutes. Once you take it out, it should remain firm indefinitely. Babassu is very reactive to heat.
