Pixy Soothing Body Balm - Luxe & Lovely for Stressed out Skin

Just a quick blog search over there --> will tell you just how highly I rate Pixy Irish natural skincare brand. Well their newest addition, Soothing Body Balm has happily taken the fave product baton from Pixy Glowing Body Butter and taken off at a sprint. 

A rich whipped concoction of some of your skins favourite salves, ingredients wise we're looking at shea butter, cocoa butter, apricot oil, coconut oil, glycerine, calendula oil, sweet almond oil, vitamin E, ylang ylang essential oil, lavender essential oil, limonene and linalool.

(As with all essential oils, do seek medical advice 
if pregnant or using on childer)

Whipped to rich perfection
Less is definitely more when using Soothing Body Balm as just a touch goes a very long way indeed. The finish is very similar to the Glowing Body Butter in that it leaves a soft sheen on the skin and probably not the best for those wanting a product to completely soak in before dressing. 

My advice though? Use this to your advantage - having hopped from the shower/bath, pat yourself dry and slather yourself liberally with this luxurious balm - slip into your most comfy cotton pjs and off to the leaba with you. The soothing properties work just like spa moisture socks or gloves but on a much larger scale so you wake up, Benjamin Button style with the bod (skin) of a much younger lady. 

I've been using the Soothing Body Balm like this for a week now - two overnight uses - and my skin is brighter, feels nourished and is beautifully scented throughout the day. If you bring out the Moisture Onesie to match this balm, Pixy, I totally want royalties!

You'll find Pixy Soothing Body Balm on their site here and in most great pharmacies throughout the country for just €12.99, That's a pretty daycent price for an all over mask if you ask me...
