For Organic Beauty Week which takes place 19-25 September I'm pleased to have teamed up with Big Green Smile, to share with you some great organic beauty products. First up is Odylique by Essential Care Ultra Rich Balm.

It comes in a plastic pot which is supposed to be recyclable but I’m not sure that it would go into my household recycling unfortunately. The pot is packaged in a cardboard box which can be recycled in my household recycling collection.

Be a Shade Greener verdict: Odylique by Essential Care Ultra Rich Balm
Odylique by Essential Care Ultra Rich Balm has been formulated to provide intense hydration for dry and distressed skin. By supporting the skin’s natural barrier function the balm helps protect it from the drying effects of heat, cold and wind. It is non-comedegenic so won't block pores. Odylique say that you can use it anywhere on your face or body and that it works well as an intensive treatment for dry hair ends and cracked heels.
The Ultra Rich Balm has a subtle smell of honey which probably comes from the beeswax. As the name suggests, it's a very rich balm so you only need a little which makes it very economical. I had a stubborn, dry, flaky patch of skin on my elbow and this is doing wonders for it. I've also used it on my cracked heels and my face after going for a walk on a rather windy day and am very impressed with the instantly soothing and moisturising results. Generally, I don't suffer with dry skin but this makes a great rescue balm for when I have a dry skin S.O.S. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, this will also help protect your skin from the elements, particularly in the winter.
