At this point, it should be abundantly obvious to you, if you read this blog regularly, that African Botanics has revolutionized healthy ultra-luxe skincare, and their newest products are absolutely peerless. They source rare ingredients of the highest quality from remote locations, and the end result is staggeringly unique skincare products that rival the most potent and effective antioxidant-rich anti-aging in the marketplace today.
According to African Botanics,
Experience the best of ancient African Apothecary ingredients and centuries old tribal traditions that were used by the first African colonial settlers, artfully merged with the latest cutting-edge skincare technology for unparallelled results. This extraordinary multi-correctional treatment balm is designed to replenish fatigued skin, target hydration levels, calm, reduce redness and restore imbalances caused by stress, environmental pollution, inflammation, hormones, sun damage and the skin’s aging process. From the first touch, this indulgent balm instantly transforms into a luxurious, highly concentrated active serum that quickly melts and absorbs into skin dramatically improving texture, delivering nutrition, radiance and cell renewal deep into the dermis while reducing irritation and inflammation. Silky and quick absorbing with a 100% natural floral fragrance dominated by JASMINE GRANDIFLORUM and DAMASK ROSE with hints of BERGAMOT. The skin is left petal soft and luminous with increased firmness, elasticity and clarity.
I assure you that this luxury face balm is unlike any other beauty balms that you have experienced. It is the perfect ultra-hydrating moisturizer that immediately nourishes and hydrates the skin, reduces inflammation and redness, plumps fine lines, evens skin tone, improves elasticity, firms, and improves overall clarity.
It is extremely concentrated, therefore a pea size amount is all that you need to use for your entire face, neck and décolleté. Warmed between the hands or fingers, this balm transforms into an exceedingly luxurious serum that melts into the skin effortlessly. The silky texture coupled with the gorgeous aroma, that is a fusion of Jasmine Grandiflorum, Damask Rose and Bergamot, makes using this luxury balm an extraordinary sensory experience.
This nourishing and healing balm is the perfect year-round moisturizer for people with dry and dehydrated skin, but the benefits of its use are so pronounced that I plan to use it all year long on my normal/combination skin. It soaks in the same way that a beauty oil does, and therefore is not unlike using a beauty oil because it liquefies in the same way once it is warmed up. It soaks in immediately and leaves skin unbelievably soft, supple, hydrated and luminous. If you are left with a greasy residue, then you have neither adequately warmed it up, nor have you used a small enough amount.
Additionally, this unique formula offers healing benefits that effectively treat skin conditions such as acne (or monthly hormonal breakouts) hyperpigmentation and it softens the appearance of scars. People with sensitive, irritated, and damaged skin will be astonished by the immediate soothing and healing properties that are embodied in this potent healing elixir, and won't ever want to be without this seemingly magical balm. This is also a great post-treatment balm that immediately calms down skin that has been subjected to a peel or vigorous exfoliation. I have used it after doing an at-home peel, and after thorough exfoliation, and my skin immediately feels and looks better. My skin can, at times, be rather sensitive, and this balm has proven to be the perfect soothing and calming remedy for just about every skin irritation that I have experienced. It is a multipurpose balm, that boasts extraordinary efficacy, and just so happens to be the perfect face cream. It delivers moisture and nutrients more effectively than any balm that I have tried, and its texture and aroma are utterly addictive. Once you try it, I suspect that you will become as obsessed with it as I am!

Skin emerges stronger and more resilient to environmental damage with increased elasticity and firmness thanks to Cape Mahogany, Mango and Shea butters. Advanced, scientifically proven actives such as skin-plumping Niacinamide, Resveratrol, CoQ10, energetic Vitamin C Ester and Retinol synergistically deliver firming, lifting and anti-wrinkle action, help treat various skin issues such as acne, scars, hyperpigmentation as well as provide an antioxidant boost while supporting natural collagen synthesis.
