Old Faithful Makers' Balm Hand Balm

Old Faithful's Makers' Balm Hand Balm (£10 for 15ml - size above is 60ml - £27). I picked this hand balm up at sale time, I think it was £22 (but I'd pick it up again at full price). I love the simple, stylish and recyclable/re-usable packaging too.

The balm is sumptuous and deliciously hydrating. It was originally made for ceramicists whose hands dry out when they are working. I have to say right now the scent of the balm is an absolute delight - Vetiver and Patchouli with a touch of Elemi and Bergamot making it earthy, woodsy, slightly citrus and spicy (it's lush) and perfectly unisex.

Founder and formulator, Gareth (former sales & marketing professional) was recovering at home with a prolapsed disc and while housebound began reading about and playing with oils. He discovered that his shave oil which he formulated himself was a lot better than what was out there. He completed an aromatherapy diploma, continued to self-learn and started formulating products for himself and friends and family. The said friends and family loved the products and urged him to take it further - and luckily for us Old Faithful was born!

It's stuffed full of nourishing, protecting, wound-healing, anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and regenerating ingredients such as shea, mango and cocoa butters, beeswax, infused carrot oil, macadamia and calendula oils.

To use: scrape a small amount out of the pot and massage into hands and nails.

I definitely want to go back and try some of the other unisex products such as: Réunion CleanserSole Salvation Foot Balm and Hamman Moisturising Serum.

What are your favourites from the brand?
