~Whoosh! Feels uplifting yet calming, at the same time!~
Whilst I haven't seen Lush Whoosh Temple Balm around for a while amongst the ever so appealing looking range of products that can be found in many a Lush high street store, it is a product I have experience of. In use I found that my small tin of Whoosh Temple Balm was a product that I found easy to live with, as it could be slightly soothing, yet also uplifting, calming and even dare I say it, a little stress reducing at times, depending on the circumstances at the time of its use.
I found that the combination of the aromas and ingredients in the product were usually effective enough to make it something that I very often be carried in a pocket or purse and kept for those moments when I felt the balm would be of some benefit to me. The small and simple product tin was durable enough to be carried around in a bag without it becoming damaged as it made from strong materials. I found that once the knack of taking the lid off without getting covered in the temple balm to get at the product was down to a fine art, the product was in the main both enjoyable to own and use.
~Using the product~
Even though each small tin of balm held only a measured amount of actual product (around 10gms) I recall that it did last well enough when in use, as I only ever used a very small amount of balm each time. As the texture and tone of the balm was nice and smooth and easy to apply to the skin, I found it could be simply placed where it was needed without having to use too much of the product each time. A very light application of balm felt effective in many instances and seemed to work for me when placed on or around pulse points as wanted.
I found that at times when a little de-stressing was needed a light application of balm with the finger tips to the outer side of the temples using a light circular motion could be quite helpful. The ingredients in the balm included those known to refresh and revive the senses such as lemon, grapefruit and lime oils which I rather liked, as well as other ingredients such as apricot and geranium oil, honey water and mango butter (which all sound very yummy to be honest and seemed to gel together quite well in this product).
~Summary and rating~
In use I found the combination of ingredients in this balm worked well and created a light easy to apply product that could give a little boost at times, yet could also be used to help calm and relax if wanted. I feel that the amount of product in the tin was adequate enough for a good number of applications, so that the balm lasted well, allowing a fair number of uses per full tin of balm. The refreshing aroma produced by the product does fade fairly quickly once applied to the skin, which is a slight negative that I feel is to be expected with these types of products. The initial scent given off by this balm is quite nice and worked well with the oils in my skin.
My rating for Whoosh Temple Balm is a mid way 3 stars which I feel reflects the effectiveness and ease of use of the product.
