Review: Nurture your skin with Palm & Sole Nurturing Balm

Palm & Sole is another one of my Twitter discoveries.  They kindly sent me a sample of their Nurturing Balm.  To give you some background the Palm & Sole range was created by Aromatherapist & Complementary Practitioner Kathy Webb and is handmade in Norfolk.  Products are pure and organic (where possible) and free from parabens, SLS, artificial colours or fragrance and mineral oils.  There are four options to the collection of products - Grounding (calm & relax), Levelling (balance & harmonize), Sparkling (revive & uplift) and Nurturing.  Each option is available as a balm, solid moisturiser, facial oil and a body, bath, shower & scalp oil. 

I was sent a sample of the Nurturing Balm which is recommended for Dry & Sensitive skin.  It contains Palmarosa and Norfolk beeswax.  I have discovered some lovely balms since writing my blog and Palm & Sole joins that growing list.  This particular balm is neutral in fragrance so perfect for those with extremely sensitive skin or if you simply prefer unfragranced products (I do pick up a hint of honey scent).  The texture and consistency is as you would expect.  It melts into the skin and feels smooth but not heavy.  I have happily applied this over eczema patches and I enjoy using it as a lip balm.  In general I find balms extremely helpful in treating my dry skin and this one is very effective.

Overall, I highly recommend Palm & Sole to anyone who needs to give their sensitive skin a boast during the winter months and beyond.  If I compare this one to Balmology and Natural U, there is no difference in performance.  I would not be able to choose a favourite between the three balms.  I think it boils down to what ingredients you prefer using on your skin and perhaps the essential oils you enjoy.

If you would like to purchase Palm & Sole products then you can do so via their website or if you live in Norfolk they are sold exclusively at Jarrolds. Has anyone else tried Palm & Sole? What did you think?

  1. This sounds great, I am starting to look for a more natural balm to replace my eight hour cream as I am sure it isn't that great for your skin. x

  2. I agree, definitely give a natural one a try. I know a lot of people rave about EA Eight Hour Cream, but it was originally designed for horses?
    Mineral oils may feel like they are treating the skin but it's a temporary effect.
    I really wanted to try this range but it's all aimed at dry skin and i have really oily skin :-(

    1. That is a shame you have oily skin because I have eczema my skin is very dry so the range is perfect. I had no idea EA was designed for horses :)

  3. I've also seen them on twitter, not used it but think it sounds good. I really like balms, they just seem to work better on my skin. My face is oily-combo but my hands are so dry & cracked (it's like body parts from two different people lol) so it could work really well. Thanks for the review! Oh I also really like herbfarmacy mallow beauty balm too, works great on hands, elbows & lips :)

    1. thanks for the tip about herbfarmacy balm, I think this would work well on hands especially if you did an overnight treatment :)

    1. I have found so many great brands through Twitter, it's proving better than searching through Google.
