 argan face balm from Wild Sage and Co

This is Wild Sage and Co's signature face balm. It is skin nourishing and silky smooth when applied. Use daily, morning and night as your main moisturiser and feel the difference in your skin almost immediately. 

It is great for dry, normal and oily skin. It is also a wonder for use around the eyes, as it is both light and nourishing leaving your eyes looking fresh and bright.

We love face creams with Argan oil bases and have been hunting high and low for the best option. Argan is a deeply nutritious oil, famous for its benefits for the hair whilst also being greatly beneficial for the skin. It is rich in essential fatty acids, which penetrate deeply into the epidermis and are readily absorbed, nourishing from the inside out. It is a brilliant anti-inflammatory, it works to improve skins elasticity and to smooth out fine lines leaving skin silky and smooth.

The clever team at Wild Sage have blended together lavender essential oil for its healing properties and geranium for its balancing effect, combined they make a wonderfully uplifting scent to start, and end, the day with.
