Miracle Skin Transformer - Heal Everything Balm

Don't you just love it when brands come up with 'everything' balms for the skin? I surely do! I have a tonne of such multi-taskers in my skincare collection with a few firm favourites being the cult favourite Eight Hour Cream and Weleda Skin Food.

These are great at solving skin problems such as when you are suffering from dehydration, skin irritation or redness, sun burn, mosquito bites, minor burns, wounds, extremely dry patches, skin chapping and peeling or just a bad skin phase where you face looks like a dried prune no matter what moisturiser you use.

Miracle Skin Transformer is a brand that has just launched in the UK I believe and their Heal Everything Balm has quickly become a favourite of mine despite having combination skin that can clog easily, has enlarged pores and is prone to breaking out. What I discovered is that, if I used my Effaclar Duo prior to using more intensive products as such, it helps keeps the pores clear of any dead skin cells so such products do not cause a breakout. Voila!

Days when skin feels blah, lacking moisture, tingly, overtly sensitive, peeling and just super moody, this comes in as a handy saviour. What I like is that although it's similar in what it does to the Eight Hour Cream and Weleda Skin Food, the paste like, thick consistency of this is still feasible to spread all over the face as opposed to its counterparts which are super thick and sticky and only intended for use sparingly. I bet it would make a great overnight, hydrating mask as well for those with dry-very dry skin. 

Main ingredients are Manuka Honey, Evening Primrose, Tamanu Oil and Blue Mountain Sage Oil. You really need to work the product into the skin as it is thick and slightly unusual than your regular lotion but once patted in, it skins in thoroughly and shows immediately result on problematic areas. 

It's a brilliant for one Spring allergies in my opinion and I can see it being a travel essential as well due to its multi-tasking properties. I would not recommend it for oily skin however but if you feel you sit on the fence of combination skin, this would work just fine.

Available at Selfridges for £18.

I'm seeing everyone else's 8 hour cream in a tube, but mine came in a pot ! Are they the same thing?

Apparently it's the same thing with the only difference being packaging :) I do like the look of the jar though, pretty vintage!
