Dr. Jart ceramidin oil balm reviewWinter time is the worst time for my skin.   My skin is already dry enough as is and it doesn’t help going in and out of the chilly weather back into a heated house.  It’s definitely getting a beating.  I picked this oil balm up couple months back in hopes of protecting my skin. I haven’t tried many Dr. Jart products but their ceramidin line caught my eye instantly.  I’ve had great success with ceramidin products so this easily creeped into my shopping basket.  So if you have dry skin like me, this might be a review you’d want to keep reading on.  So lets… GO!  ヾ(・ω・。)シ

This oil balm comes in a frosted glass jar with a metal twist on cap.  It is pretty heavy so it isn’t very travel friendly.  If you want to carry it around with you, I’d suggest you place some in a smaller container that is more lightweight.

How to use:
You can use this balm anywhere on your body and your face.
This balm is perfect for extra-dry patches or chapped, chafed areas and can be used on cuticles, elbows, nails, and hair to keep them looking and feeling nourished and revitalized.”   You can use this as a replacement for a moisturizer, but I have found the best way to use this is after you have applied your moisturizer.  Using the oil balm after your moisturizer helps seal in the hydration and I wake up to nice and soft skin.

Texture/ Finish:
Texture of this product is a hard balm where you’d have to scrap amounts out to be able to use it.  You can use your fingers and swirl it around to get some of the balm but the best way was to use a spatula to scrap some off the surface.  This way it is sanitary and it takes less time to get the product onto your skin.

IMG_0515After it is applied to the skin, it does leave the face slightly greasy but not something that bothers me.  I personally like the greasiness but I know a lot of people don’t. It is not a heavy type of greasiness however it does takes about 2 hours before it is fully absorbed.  I usually just use it right before I go to bed so when I wake up, I have soft and moisturized skin.

After effects:
Like I mentioned before, I usually use this on my face right before I go to bed.  I don’t like to use it during the day because I wear glasses and the greasiness makes my glasses slide off my face.  After moisturizer, I use this oil as the the last step to my skincare routine to seal in the hydration for a longer period of time.  I did notice when I woke up in the morning, my skin is noticeably softer and hydrated.  This balm is suitable to be used anywhere on your body as well but I have just been using this mainly on my face.

This oil balm has a slight herbal scent and some people might not like it if you aren’t into the really “green smell”.  But for those of you who have gotten used to Lush soaps and skincare products, you’ll have no problem transiting this product into your routine.  Smell-o-scale= 5/10.

-multi purpose
-lightweight oil
-great moisturizer

-slightly pricey for what it is

Maybe but leaning more to the no side.

Stars given out of 5:

Overall thoughts:
Although I do like this product, it is not something I will repurchase again because I think it’s quite pricey for what it’s worth.  It is honestly just a oil balm that heats up with body temperature to become a oil that you can use anywhere on the body or face.  On the face, it is a great moisture seal but for the price of $44 CDN, I will pass and stick to my cheaper alternative, The body shop Vitamin E serum in oil that does the same thing for a fraction of the price and I can also get it on promotion for half the retail price.  Overall I think this is a good product and if you can afford it, this would be a good pick for you.  If there ever comes a point in time that I need something I know I can relay on and won’t irritate my skin, I will possible come back to this product but until then, I will finish this jar up and move on to something else.
