Shiffa Healing Balm Product Review

Shiffa Healing Balm

Shiffa Healing Balm

I was recently sent the Shiffa Healing balm to review, I often do product reviews which you can find here. Shiffa is Dubai based and the word Shiffa means ‘healing’ in Arabic. The Shiffa Healing balm contains ingredients aiming to both sooth, comfort, revive, rejuvenate, repair and restore. Some of the ingredients are Chamomile, Indian Neem, Lavender, Meadowfoam, Rosemary, Mango and Shea butter, St John’s Wort, Evening Primrose and Amica.

Shiffa Healing balm as well as more of the Shiffa range can be found in Selfridges. The Shiffa Healing balm comes in really nice quality packaging and the consistency of the product is a light mousse, foam texture. The product isn’t sealed in any way which I would have preferred as having a protective seal seems to have now become the norm within cosmetics.

The Shiffa Healing balm is described as a gentle, natural balm that is non-sticky. I found the product to be very heavily scented, this may be natural but I cannot imagine applying such a fragranced  balm to my face. I tend to stick with very mild or non fragranced cosmetics that are used on my face as I have very sensitive skin and this can cause it to react. I used the Shiffa Healing balm on my hands and knees as my skin gets very dry there and it did make them feel very soft with only a little oil residue. It is quite a heavy product on the skin so this is another reason why I was more inclined to use it on my body rather than on my face. The brand describe the products as potent and whilst some people may love this in a skin care range I prefer my milder, subtle products.

    I don’t like using anything too oily, or rich, on my face either. I would use a product like this on my elbows and knees.

    I’ve never heard of this line before! Not so much of a fan of slapping anything that’s too oily on my face – oily skin no no’s. haha. But this would probably work great for moisturising any dry areas of my bodaaay like you said!

    I’ve never tried it before but it looks like a nice product from your description and the packaging looks very sweet. I agree that not having it sealed would put me off slightly as well. There is nothing quite like the feeling of dipping into a new batch of a product that is completely untouched.

    Nice review, such a cute little package! I have sensitive skin too so this product might not be great for my face haha, but it sounds really good for other areas of the body x
