Redwin Perfect Naturals Coconut Balm - review


We received this in a recent edit of The Parcel, and I was glad to see it because I've been wanting to try coconut oil for a while (too many people have been banging on about it in cyberspace to ignore it!) and this seemed like a good place to start.

I'm happy to say that I'm enjoying this product and it's inspired me to go out and buy some pure coconut oil so I can give that a go too. First and foremost I love the smell of this product, but I'm also loving that it's multipurpose and my favourite use for it so far is to nourish my dry feet.

The smell of this product is absolutely divine and I love using it for that reason alone - it smells good enough to eat!

It's quite a thick balm that melts beautifully when warmed by the skin, so it spreads well and a little goes a long way. I'm glad that the shelf-life is 24 months because I reckon this little tube will last for ages. This adds even more value to the product because it's not expensive anyway, so what's a few dollars for something you'll have for a long time?

On the uses, I've tried it as a lip balm and didn't like it for that purpose because it has too much slip and falls off my lips too easily. It'd probably be fine for an overnight lip treatment, and I'll use it for that in winter if my lips are chapped (which I've read that it's great for), but I wouldn't use it during the day because I'd be applying it too often.

I saw one reviewer say that she uses this product as an overnight treatment because she has dry skin. I was a little reluctant to do this due to the balm's thick texture, but I did try it for that purpose last night just to see how it fared. My skin didn't suffer for it, but it didn't feel as soft the next day as it does with other overnight treatments I've used, so I won't use it this way again.

As mentioned above, my favourite use for it is as a foot balm. Like many of us, I have dry feet that are always in need of a little TLC, and this nourishes and hydrates them beautifully. Plus I only need to use the smallest amount to get the job done.

It's also good on cuticles, and I've seen a few people say that it's great at healing/soothing burns and insect bites, so it looks like those claims are true.

All in all, this is a great little product to have in the bathroom cabinet because it has so many uses - and it smells so divine. Plus it's cheap!
