Cleanse, Nourish & Comfort: The BALMOLOGY Trial Set

One of my sisters kindly sent me this trial set for my 26th birthday last October. Having never tried any balms before, I was eager to try them out! The trial/travel set costs £17 (available here) and contains three 12g balms, allowing you the chance to try out each balm before deciding if you want to purchase a full size. Each balm is housed in a glass jar with a screw-top lid, all housed within a recyclable cardboard tube.
Neroli & Sweet Basil Cleansing Balm, £25/50g
This has to be my favourite of the bunch! It's the most useful of the three balms and I love the way it melts my make-up upon contact. It's a really lovely balm; almost whipped in texture and it has a pleasant scent. After applying the balm to my skin and massaging it in, I use a hot, damp cloth to wipe away the make-up and grime. It leaves my skin soft and moisturised. I'd definitely be interested in purchasing the full size, although I am sure there is another perfectly good cleansing balm out there for a few less pennies!
Neroli & Frankincense Beauty Balm, £28/50g
I guess this is the balm I was most excited to try, solely due to the fact that frankincense is one of my favourite scents! I must admit, this was the last balm that I tried, as I wasn't completely sure of its purpose. This does smell gorgeous and it's basically a deeply hydrating overnight treatment. It's also meant to reducing signs of ageing an improve skin texture. I wouldn't be compelled to purchase the full size of this balm, as it doesn't seem like a necessary part of my skincare regime.
Calendula & Chamomile Comfort Balm, £22/50g
This comfort balm has come in really handy for soothing any sore, dry, chapped and otherwise irritated skin. It reduces redness and calms itchiness almost immediately. The effects are really long-lasting, too. It has a thick, softened texture and only a little is needed.
