Evercalm™ Overnight Recovery Balm

Evercalm™ Overnight Recovery Balm, or ORB as we affectionately like to call it, is a targeted and intensely nourishing barrier balm specifically formulated to help repair extremely sensitive, stressed, or dehydrated skin, and proven to calm and soothe while you sleep.  

First, the formula 

Evercalm™ Overnight Recovery Balm has a water and oil emulsion formula, with 98% natural origin ingredients and a delicately calming fragrance that delivers more short-term benefits for skin that has had a rough time of it and is displaying all the signs of over-sensitisation. 

Let’s talk texture 

Evercalm™ Overnight Recovery Balm is a rich, thick balm designed to be used locally to target irritated, sensitive, and very dry or scaly skin. And a handy hint, you can also use it to treat split ends, rough elbows, needy knees… the list goes on. If it’s irritated and needs hydrating, ORB is the balm for you! 

The key ingredients 

Evercalm™ Overnight Recovery Balm helps to support your skin during its natural overnight regeneration process by feeding it with an easily absorbed complex of activated Almond, Borage and Linseed Oils, plus a fatty acid-rich Jojoba and Sunflower Oil complex, to help soothe signs of sensitivity accumulated during the day. These ultra-nourishing bioactive ingredients help reinforce your skin’s natural protective barrier, minimising water loss that can lead to dehydration and visible signs of premature ageing. We’ve also added skin-soothing Beta-Glucan to reduce signs of irritation and sensitivity from dryness. 

How to use it 

Evercalm™ Overnight Recovery Balm is a super effective hydrator, so a small amount goes a long way. Apply to freshly cleansed areas of concern in the evening after your serum, and massage into skin until fully absorbed. Evercalm™ Overnight Recovery Balm can also be used anytime during the day on dry patches that need some extra TLC.

Let’s talk texture 

Evercalm™ Barrier Support Elixir is an incredibly lightweight oil to be used over the entire face, designed to help strengthen sensitive or dry skin in need of comfort. The non-greasy texture means that all of its nourishing goodness is easily absorbed into the skin without leaving any heavy or sticky residue behind. 

The key ingredients 

Evercalm™ Barrier Support Elixir is enriched with a carefully selected blend of 7 natural oils that work together to intensively nourish and replenish skin. Including: Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, sourced from the 'purest place on earth' Jeju Island in Korea, soothes skin and helps reduce signs of sensitivity. Cold-pressed Organic Inca Inchi Oil, one of the world’s richest sources of omega 3 and 6, replenishes the skin and helps repair the skin barrier, and sustainably sourced Meadowfoam Seed Oil, rich in lipids and antioxidants, nourishes the skin and helps strengthen the skin barrier. 

How to use it 

Morning and/or evening, warm 3-5 drops of Evercalm™ Barrier Support Elixir in the palm of your hand and apply by gently patting over the face, neck and décolleté until fully absorbed. You can also add Evercalm™ Barrier Support Elixir straight to your favourite day or night cream to give them an extra barrier- boost too.
