Naturally Legit Remedy Salve Review
Naturally Legit is run by Ema, who started the business in 2019 after two years of making beauty products for herself, family and friends. She produces a range of natural, organic, handmade skincare products from her studio in London. All of the products are plastic free and either come in compostable cardboard packaging or reusable glass or aluminium jars. Ema encourages her customers to reuse the jars where possible, and hopes to be able to offer a refill service in the future, to cut down on packaging even further.
Naturally Legit kindly gifted me their Lavender & Calendula Remedy Salve to try…
Naturally Legit Remedy Salve
This multi-purpose salve can be used on many different areas of the body to give an instant burst of moisture. I’ve been using it on my lips, cuticles, elbows and on an annoying dry patch of skin I’ve developed on my forehead over the past few months! I’ve noticed an instant difference in all of the places I’ve been applying the salve, my lips feel super soft and the dry patch of skin on my face has reduced in size and is less visible. Amazing!
As well as being suitable for all of the above, the remedy salve can also be applied on dry hands, cracked heels, nappy rash, mosquito bites and as an aftersun balm.
The product comes in a 30ml or 60ml aluminium tin. As it is a natural product, it lasts for six months, and comes with a use by date on the back – a useful reminder! As it’s a daily use product, I think it’s pretty easy to get through in 6 months, so don’t let this put you off in any way.
So, let’s talk a bit more about the ingredients….
The balm is packed with organic calendula petal and lavender bud infused oil, which not only gives off the most gorgeous scent, but also provides natural healing properties. Calendula flowers have been used in medicines and cosmetics for years because of their antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. Lavender’s anti-inflammatory properties make it great for smoothing and healing skin that’s irritated from sun, insect bites or bacteria. Its antiseptic properties also help the skin to heal faster, while fighting and preventing further infection.
The remedy salve also contains highly moisturising Shea Butter and Beeswax which provides a protective wall on the skin to seal moisture in. There are no preservatives, artificial ingredients or parabens in this product, and it is 100% natural. I am absolutely loving using this balm, its texture is smooth and silky, and it glides onto the skin with ease. The smell is AMAZING, I sometimes open the tin just to breathe in the sweet lavender scent! I’d highly recommend checking out Naturally Legit’s Etsy store to see even more of their amazing products… I’ve got my eye on the natural deodorant next!
