The Body Shop launched a bunch of new products last month and one of them is the Amazonian Saviour Multi-Purpose Balm. And it is probably the first ever product that enhances the appearance of tattoos. Whether it actually improves the appearance I can’t say because I am not a #GirlWithInk but what I am is a #GirlWithVeryDrySkin and thankfully this product works on nourishing dry skin too. How does the new The Body Shop Amazonian Saviour Multi-Purpose Balm fare? Read on to find out.
The Body Shop Amazonian Saviour Multi-Purpose Balm
Packed with powerful natural origin oils and waxes, our Amazonian Saviour™ Multi-Purpose Balm helps to revive the appearance of tattoos, intensely nourishes severely dry skin and helps to improve the appearance of skin marks with a nourishing, 100% natural-origin formula.
The story behind this powerful product begins in the heart of the Amazon. For centuries, different societies in the Amazon have relied on powerful natural ingredients to nurture damaged and tattooed skin. Inspired by the Amazonian communities, our Amazonian Saviour™ Multi-Purpose Balm is made with just nine natural-origin ingredients. Every sale of the Amazonian Saviour™ Multi-Purpose Balm will be used to help us build Bio-Bridges around the world, to support conservation and help communities to live more sustainably.
Price – Rs 1195 for 50 ml
As the name suggests, Amazonian Saviour is a multi-purpose balm that heals dry skin and can be used on the lips, body, cuticles and even on tattoos, stretch marks and scars.
The packaging is very attractive and credit for that goes to UK-based tattoo artist Saira Hunjan who designed the artwork. The texture of the balm is very similar to petroleum jelly. In fact, hard petroleum jelly. It does not have any fragrance, something I like.
Even though the texture of the balm is quite thick, it melts into the skin fast and absorbs easily. I’ve been using it mostly to moisturise my lips, hands, knees and elbows – the driest areas of my body. What I like is that it does not turn the skin oily and greasy and the moisturizing effect lasts for a long time. I’ve been using the product on some of my stretch marks and scars as well. Have not seen any improvement yet but I guess on those it will take some time to show results.
I have been carrying this compact tub in my handbag ever since I started using it and for this winter, The Body Shop Amazonian Saviour Multi-Purpose Balm is my best friend. If you have dry skin, definitely give it a try.
