Wonder Balm.



You may recognise this little gem from my previous Glossybox post, it was where we were first acquainted.

Since the fateful day that I placed this into my box, it's been a bit of a whirlwind romance.

Connock have really delivered on a big claim: the name 'Wonder Balm' will conjure up some miraculous expectations after all...

Inside the plain functional packaging lies an unoffensive balm that melts into a nourishing balm once applied. The balm itself contains Kukai Oil, Monoi, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil and Shea Butter.

I'll be honest, I have no idea what on earth Kukai Oil is, whatever it is, it's doing the trick. It appears to nourish without leaving an oily residue, considering it's balm/oily texture when applied it's nothing short of brilliant.

I've been religiously slapping this on my poor dry cuticles and lips, we're only just into autumn and they've been crying out for hydration. Cue Wonder Balm in my bag, pocket, on my bedside table. Although I've been restricting the use of this product to just two areas, you can slap it on anywhere you feel a bit dry,

At £18.50 for 10ml of product, we're not talking about a bargain find. But I will gladly repurchase this if it keeps on doing the job.

So, why do I love this little pot so much?

Well, it's all natural, and it's almost artisan in it's approach, passed down from father to daughter. It's a lovely story.

What's your favourite winter saviour for lips, cuticles, elbows etc?

  1. I've got some of this and I really don't understand the hype surrounding it, I find it really hard to apply and it takes me ages to get even just a little bit out of the pot and apply it! I tried smothering my dry elbows in it and I just gave up iin the end, am I doing something wrong?!

  2. @Lucy If it's a little bit warmer I find it really easy to apply. Maybe try warming the pot between your palms for a little while? x
