Review: Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm
When you travel, have you noticed, that you skin sometimes does not like local water or moisture levels in the air? My skin is quite particular, as while it is mostly all-right when I am at home, it starts a little strike as soon as I go abroad. I reckon this is partially due to the fact that I cant take my full cleansing routine with me. Also, as the weather gets colder and the air get drier, I constantly find myself fighting with dry skin patches here and there.
Recently, I discovered Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm, which is a great all-rounder and its smart packaging of 45 ml is perfect for travelling, if you take hand luggage only. Here are a few snaps from my trip to Budapest in November with Eucerine Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm, which kept me company in the cold and the rain.
As I mentioned, it is got perfect travel size of under 100ml, so it went into my transparent bag for the security check.
The texture of the balm is similar to Vaseline: slightly oily and it does leave a shiny trace once you put it on. But I liked the fact that the balm does not have any smell and it is absolutely transparent, so I was happy with the application.
Usually I used it twice a day, once in the morning, before I set out on my adventures in Budapest and then at night, when I was going to bed. I found that even after a few applications the result was visible, my dry patches were disappearing and skin was looking smooth and moisturised again.
I also took it with me to beautiful Gellert Baths and used it on my feet after taking the bath. My feet definitely get neglected in winter period as they are constantly in socks and boots. Sometimes I forget, that actually they need as much attention in the winter ( if not more ) as I usually give them during summer months.
Budapest is full of cake shops, and me and cake are two best friends! After I had my daily intake of cake, I used the balm to keep my lips moist and stop them from chapping in cold weather. Eucerin Aquaphor Balm was perfect for this task.
Most of all I liked the fact that the balm is multi-functional , so if you are travelling , you can just take it and use it for different things. Next time when we go on a family trip, the balm is definitely coming with me again. The balm only has 7 ingredients, and it is absolutely safe to use for babies and their delicate skin. Also, Letitia is at the age where she is constantly exploring the world and with it come scratches, grazes, you name it. I will definitely be packing the balm for all my future travels!
