Move over, Vaseline! Mediterranean Olive Almond & Sage WonderBalm by Boots is a sweet treat for rough, dry skin and its fragrance can’t be beat. I actually can’t stop myself from sniffing this little jar of wonder. If you would like a truly tantalizing product to help treat dry, rough, or patchy skin, Mediterranean Olive Almond & Sage WonderBalm by Boots is a sure winner to consider.
Like most people, I get the occasional dry elbows and dry knees that can always benefit from a little extra moisture. I always slather on lotion, often Bath & Body Works brand or something comparable. (I also enjoy Palmer’s Cocoa Butter and Olive Butter products.) While I love the lotions and find it’s hard to go wrong with them, the moisturizing effects don’t always last as long as you’d hope. That’s part of what I love about Mediterranean Olive Almond & Sage WonderBalm by Boots… hours later and my skin is still soft and smooth.
The fragrance of this wonderful emollient is definitely my favorite feature, though. The scent is uplifting, fresh, and clean. Mediterranean Olive Almond & Sage WonderBalm by Boots reminds me of aloe and honeysuckle, but in fact, it actually contains softening olive oil, nourishing almond oil, and fragrant sage oil, per its name. Other key ingredients include Petrolatum, Grape seed oil, Cocoa seed butter, and Beeswax.
This product contains organic extracts and healthful ingredients for a natural moisturizing experience. I am not familiar with a few of the ingredients, so I can’t say if it is 100% natural and organic (it does contain “fragrance”). Despite this slight level of uncertainty, I am not concerned one bit. I absolutely adore this product and plan to continue using it for a long time to rejuvenate the rough areas on my knees, ankles, and elbows.
Boots’ Mediterranean Olive Almond & Sage WonderBalm is available on Amazon.com for $8.99 plus shipping. The jar size is modest, only 25 ml, but that makes it the perfect size to tote along in your purse. (Tip: Don’t read this article and our article on de-cluttering your purse at the same time!
