We are in a snow-covered deep freeze here in the Northeast, and it’s taking its toll on my skin. Every time winter weather rolls around, I find myself wishing for a product that can multitask when it comes to dry skin. Like a lip balm, but multipurpose — for my entire body. I know that products like this existed before, but something about them always felt off; either I didn’t like the way they felt on my skin, or they just didn’t work as well as I’d hoped. I’ve finally found the holy grail of balms! Kari Gran Essential Balm ($98) is perfect for literally your whole body. This balm is my new go-to for winter!
Patches of dry skin that are caused by cold weather? A tiny bit of this balm will soften them. Irritated skin under your nose from an illness? This will moisturize it so it’s gone in a few days. Dryness under your eyes? A few gentle dabs of this will help hydrate. Hangnails? Put this on them! You can literally use this anywhere (yep, it works as a lip balm, too). A little goes SUCH a long way; a dab half the size of a pea is enough to use on several areas of your body. It glides on smoothly and thins as it warms from your touch, making application gently and quick.
It’s made with natural, organic, non-GMO ingredients (and cruelty-free), so I don’t have to worry about toxins being absorbed into my skin. In short, this will be with me until spring (and probably after that, too).
