Review: Haughton Greene - Lavender & Mandarin Sensitive Skin Balm




Haughton Greene is a skincare company based in Staffordshire, founded by Jason Horton. This little company was created when the founder wanted a product that would be effective on eczema, a condition that both his children suffered from.

Fast forward a little bit and Haughton Greene now also produces body scrubs, body butters, and much more. All products are 100% natural.

I love trying out new skincare products so I was happy to receive this Lavender & Mandarin Sensitive Skin Balm*. Although I don't suffer from eczema, I do get dry skin when I don't moisturise enough. 

The lavender smell is amazing and I find that it's a really calming smell. The mandarin adds a little sharpness to it but it's not that noticeable. I don't actually own any lavender scented products but now I'm thinking that I probably should!

The texture of this balm is really smooth and easy to apply. When I first opened the tin, I thought that it would be quite a thick, waxy texture but it melts so easily into my fingers. It's also not sticky.

I've had a rough dry patch on the back of my hand for about a week now. I'm not entirely sure how it even happened but it was so itchy. No amount of moisturising or exfoliating was helping, and it was just getting more and more itchy. So I applied some of this onto my hand. I actually wasn't expecting much of a difference so I was extremely pleased to see that after a day, the dry patch had gotten ten times better. And now my hand is almost back to normal! This has been a miracle balm and it couldn't have arrived at a better time!

I only have a little 15g pot but I can see that it's going to last me quite a while. You can purchase the full-sized version on their website for £8.50.

Does anyone else love natural skincare?
