This product arrived a solid so i was surprised when one day I went to open it and it spilled everywhere. I reached out to the company who wouldn’t replace it unless i spent another $100. I decided to just leave the issue alone since from the little bit I could smell in the jar, I didn’t like the scent of it. The scent is overpowering and way too strong. The watery consistency of the product also left my skin drier than when it first went on. I need something more moisturizing.
First of all, I have to say I love the smell of this product! It feels great on my skin.
My only issue with Green Leaves, is that I have to keep it in the fridge at all times. It totally and completely liquifies at room temperature. I keep my apartment at a normal 74 degrees after that the a/c kicks on. I don’t have this issue with any of my many other balm skincare products. If only Green Leaves came in a pump bottle I would use it more. If I don’t refrigerate, then it tends to get messy in the jar and spill in its liquid state. I find myself either forgetting about it or just not wanting to walk to the kitchen to put it on. Because of this the product is kinda a miss for me.
So I bought the sample size off someone else from a beauty group I belong to. Despite the recent warmer temps, it arrived solid, though soft. We live in a three story townhouse whose upper floor is always the hottest. The temp dropped from mid 80s yesterday to the mid 70s yet when I opened the jar tonight to use it for the first time it ran out all over my sink as it had totally melted. So thankful that I opened it over my sink (total coincidence). I hope to update my post later regarding efficacy but wanted to post the warning that it definitely will melt (as indicated in the description) above 80 degrees and if you order over the warmer months you may want to put it in your fridge over night before opening in case it melted in transit.
I usually cannot use coconut oil at all on my face, but this stuff is fantastic! Not only does it not make me break out it moisturizes my skin and helps any break outs. Absolutely wonderful in every way.
The intoxicating smell that this balm delivers is so calming to me. This balm not only calms my redness on my cheeeks but it helps calm me mentally. The smell is so fresh and pure! I received my balm when the whether was 20 degrees below zero. The balm calmed my skin in this extreme temperature!
