H2O NATURAL SPRING BODY BALM REVIEW
I am reviewing here today one of my absolute favourite from H2O, natural spring body balm. After trying the blushing orange shower gel from H2O, and getting pretty decent results, I got this body balm and other skincare products from this brand.
Unlike my oily facial skin, the skin on my body is a bit dry and I need body butters/ body balms to keep it hydrated. Prior to this I was using a derma prescribed body lotion but that had very unpleasant smell and would feel very sticky. When I tried it at the store, I could immediately notice that it just seeped in quickly and my skin felt uber soft. I had no reasons to say no to this 😀
WHAT THE COMPANY CLAIMS ABOUT IT
This ultra-rich body lotion infuses skin with nourishing moisture, leaving it smooth, supple and freshly fragranced with Shea Butter, Aloe and Iceland Moss
• Highly emollient shea butter and soothing aloe vera heal and protect skin, leaving it touchably soft and resilient
• Aloe naturally soothes inflammation and encourages cellular renewal
• Iceland moss deeply moisturizes at the cellular level
• Clean scent of water lilies is brightened with hints of fresh-cut greens, lemon, mint and jasmine
The moisturising body balm by h2o is available in following exotic variants
• Clear water
• Natural Spring
• Ebb tide
• Raspberry guava

Out of these I have tried blushing orange and this natural spring one.
Here a little info. About its key ingredients
Aloe: A succulent plant used for thousands of years to heal and soothe burned, irritated, or inflamed skin; increases the synthesis and strength of skin-tissue, and encourages new skin-cell production.
Shea Butter: Extracted from the nut of the African Shea tree, this ultra-rich moisture source is rapidly absorbed by the skin, leaving it touch ably smooth and nourished.
Iceland moss: Recognized for its healing properties, this greyish-white herb grows abundantly on the lava slopes and plains of north-western Iceland. The plant’s water-soluble polysaccharides help heal irritated tissue and replenish essential moisture.
PRICE- INR 550
QUANTITY- 240 ML / 8 FL OZ
The body balm comes in a translucent, long, thick plastic tube with a flip cap. The packaging is exactly like their shower gels.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH H2O BODY BALM
The body balm by H2O is one of the finest nourishing product I have used till date… Despite being very moisturising it is not thick and absorbs/seeps into the skin quickly without the need to massage it in a lot. The consistency is neither thick like heavy body creams & not runny like body lotions, lies somewhere in between. It has mild, fresh, fragrance of aloe vera which stays on just for some 10-15 minutes. As evident from the pictures above (before-after) it imparts a healthy glow to the skin along with keeping it hydrated, soft, supple for long. Within 1 week of using it I could notice how it softened my extremely rough elbow and ankle area too. With continued usage I have noticed visible difference in the texture, appearance of my skin. For me, the body balm has worked really well, has sorted my dry-skin issue, and I find no reasons to switch to a different brand at the moment.
Overall it’s an excellent product and I would definitely repurchase and recommend it to any one/everyone with dry skin looking for a good body cream/lotion.
