Balmonds Intensive Facial Oil 30ml
Intensive Facial Oil is a gorgeous blend of beneficial oils specially chosen for their incredible rejuvenating properties, feeding tired, delicate or damaged skin with the essential vitamins and nutrients it needs to stay soft, healthy and hydrated.
This is a gentle conditioning oil made with only the highest quality plant-based ingredients. It was designed specifically to nourish and hydrate the delicate skin of the face, but can be applied anywhere on the body. It’s an ideal overnight treatment and can be used to soften scars, blemishes and blotchiness, smoothing out uneven skin tone and caring for thirsty, dehydrated and ageing skin. Perfect for the sensitive skin of pregnant women and new mothers (it can even be used on stretch marks!), or to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
We use an unusually high proportion of pure rosehip oil in our formulation, as well as luxurious lavender, palmarosa and Roman Chamomile essential oils and the best quality, UK-sourced cold-pressed organic sunflower and organic calendula oils.
You can also use this lovely oil as an enriching addition to your usual day or night cream - just add a few drops to the pot and stir in. A little goes a very long way!
Intensive Facial Oil is totally free from parabens, preservatives, petrochemicals or perfumes, which makes it perfect for dry or sensitive skin. It’s also suitable for people who may be prone to dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and dry, sore, itchy skin conditions.
Suitable for all ages and skin types
Cruelty-free and suitable for vegans
This product was previously called Purepotions Skin Salvation Intensive Facial Oil.
How to use
Dispense a few drops of the oil onto your fingertips and apply to freshly cleansed, slightly damp skin last thing at night. Massage it very gently onto your cheeks, forehead and chin, smoothing over lips, nose and under eyes with gentle upwards strokes to distribute evenly over the whole face. Leave on overnight.
Can also be used on scar tissue, stretch marks, uneven or damaged skin anywhere on the body; just apply gently to the area, smoothing the oil on with soft pats.
Keep in a cool dark place. For external use only.
We recommend customers patch test on an unaffected area close to the affected area before use (leave for 24 hours) as some people may be allergic even to the very gentle ingredients we use in this product.
Do not use if you are sensitive or allergic to any of the ingredients in this product.

Balmonds began with a mother so desperate to find an effective, non-steroidal moisturiser for her daughter’s painful skin that she ended up making one herself.
A mother's solution
Natalie Balmond had tried countless lotions and potions, both prescribed and alternative, but every single cream on offer stung Lula’s sore skin and seemed to make things worse rather than better.
Natalie knew exactly what she needed: a cream that didn't contain anything unnecessary or irritating that might trigger a flare-up.
- no preservatives
- no fragrances
- no chemical emulsifiers
- no ingredients only there for the sake of appearance
- no known irritants, such as parabens, pegs, sls, etc.
Instead, the moisturiser had to be:
- 100% natural
- as mild as possible
- intensively hydrating
Natalie worked in her kitchen, mixing together combinations of nourishing organic oils, skin-kind herbs and beeswax. The gentle, entirely natural balm she ended up formulating worked so well and so quickly to hydrate Lula’s thirsty skin that Natalie could see straight awayshe should make it available to everyone else she knew might need it.
What is Skin Salvation?
Skin Salvation is a thick, rich, oily, beeswax-based salve, designed to soothe the itch, lock in moisture and protect from further irritation to break the itch-scratch cycle. It contains hemp seed oil which is very rich in essential fatty acids which eczema sufferers often lack, so long-term use will nourish the skin with the nutrients and oils needed to regenerate, regulate and repair the skin.
The company Natalie founded, Balmonds, now makes a whole range of natural skincare for people prone to allergies and eczema, those with sensitive or dry skin, or anyone who wants to avoid irritants, toxins or pollutants in their skincare regime.
It had to be better so we made it ourselves
