AURORA Cleanse + Hydrate Balm (multi-use balm)

with pumpkin + blood orange + palo santo 

*contains no coconut oil or Shea butter!* 

A golden shape-shifter. A nimble traveller. An aromatic companion, with rich blood orange and spicy, earthy notes. The luxe 2018 update will not disappoint with it's improved rinse-ability and extremely soft, bouncy after-feel . From solid to liquid, clear to opaque, cleansing, moisturizing, uplifting and relaxing; an ultra-versatile cleansing & makeup-removing balm is now an even more luxurious leave-on product... without the hefty price tag!

  • A balm inspired by the simple pleasures that anchor your day. A quiet moment in the early morning, golden light beginning to pour in through the window. Speckles of sparkling dust caught in the sunshine, drifting silently as you sip your coffee and nibble breakfast. The room is quiet, still, before the world wakes up.

  • Description

     This highly nutritious, water-less balm has the unique concept of being both cleanser and moisturizer, making life simple and beautiful (oh, you didn't know all you needed was this balm? Yep!). This delicious, transforming balm melts away daily grime and dirt by disappearing into a cleansing oil on contact with skin, then rinsing away with a milky texture once water is massaged onto skin, replenishing your skin with healthy, antioxidant-rich plant-derived oils and butters, such as linoleic acid-rich pumpkin seed, regenerative sea buckthorn and deeply nourishing organic Cacao, kokum and mango seed butters (and more!). Next, the balm can be used as a moisturizer, alone or with a Stark oil.

    Create a thick mask for an overnight hydration treatment, apply to dry body parts, tame flyaway hair, soften cuticles, use as a lip balm or simply gaze at the balm lovingly... AURORA does it all!  Blood orange, turmeric, pettitgrain and palo santo are the star essential oils, regenerating cells and deeply cleansing skin from impurities. 

    Who is it for?:

    • Combination skin with oily T zone.
    • Dry and dehydrated skin.
    • Travellers.
    • Minimalists (or minimalists at heart!)
    • Mature skin.
    • Many people with oily acneic skin also find this to be a wonder-balm!

    * Those with very sensitive skin may find this balm a little irritating (although most do not). If you have known sensitivities to citrus oils or any of the ingredients listed, this product may not be suitable for you.

    How to Use

    There are many ways to use AURORA

    1. Use a pea sized amount, and warm between fingers. Massage into dry skin or wet skin and let the nutritious oils and butters be soaked up before gently wiping away with a warm, wet cloth. Work gentle into eyelashes to remove even waterproof mascara (can be used by those of us with sensitive eyes!). You will notice a milky emulsion occurs and can be rinsed away clean. You may splash with water if you like, for an extra-clean feel.

    2. Again, using a pea-sized amount in the palm of your hand, slowly add a few drops of warm water and emulsify, creating a cleansing OR hydrating lotion!

    3. Next, it can be used as a beauty balm moisturizer for face, body, lips and hair! A perfect skin prep under your daily SPF! Mix with mineral makeup for a custom foundation or highlighter, you crafty alchemist you!

    Blood orange and petitgrain essential oils are SUN SAFE citrus oils, and not only cleansing and have astringent properties, but are an antioxidant powerhouse, as is turmeric. Wonderful for occasionally problematic skin, also gentle enough for dry, sensitive skin. Has a wonderful, fresh aroma that is uplifting and invigorating, with a slightly earthy undertone from grounding Palo Santo. This balm smells absolutely mouth-watering. Un-processed butters heal, soften and protect skin with a light, natural SPF.
