Light face balm for acne-prone skin. A vegan balm that is soft and melts instantly. Tigress is noncomedogenic with built-in acne controls! It is easy to apply just a thin layer due to the balm's fine and loose texture. Tigress is a lightweight (that is, lightweight for a balm, but not as light as a face oil or a moisturiser), healing, deeply penetrating balm that invigorates the skin tissue, heals acne breakouts, reduces acne and blackhead tendencies, balances excessive oil production, and firms skin in the long run. It protects from moisture loss and from the wind and cold.
For acne-prone, congestion-prone, combination, and oily skin types. Oftentimes, the skin needs a day or a few to adjust to these new ingredients and then begins to tolerate the balm well.
If you are wondering which face balm is the right choice for you:
Tigress is a medium-weight to light "dry" balm for normal and combination to acne and oily skin types. It is healing to skin disorders such as rosacea, and it contains several anti-acne yet nondrying ingredients.
Yasuni is one step lighter; it is a very lean antioxidant and enzymatic balm without any essential oils. Yasuni controls oil production in oily skin and decreases and prevents blackheads, while providing a high dose of antioxidants. Its enzymatic exfoliating properties help resurface the skin in a way comparable to retinol, but without causing redness, irritation, or intense peeling.
Green Leaves is a "juicy" type of balm that was designed for dry and mature skin with acne. It heals acne breakouts with lemon thyme while preventing acne scars. Its base is melt-on-contact anti-inflammatory and hydrating virgin coconut oil, and the scent of Green Leaves is just irresistible: violet leaf, holy basil, and French lavender.
Apply day and night or only at night all over the face or just on the oily or acne-prone areas.
This balm was designed to create a superb blend with Farizad's Veil Sun Reflector: it is easy to blend into a smooth and still quite soft, opaque, pale caramel-colored balm. We highly recommend adding a sprinkle of Farizad's Veil even if you don't care for the sun protective benefits. Farizad's Veil will render the balm dryer in feel and your face will instantly have a natural matte appearance. Farizad's Veil also adds redness-reducing, anti-inflammatory, and further anti-acne properties.
Try this incredible trio: a layer of Nap in the Meadow Face Serum, then Tigress Face Balm and Farizad's Veil blended together.
Your balm may melt in transit, so open the jar carefully upon arrival. If it melts partially or completely, place it in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes (just until it solidifies; don't leave it there for too long because then it tends to crack), then store at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Texture changes in 100% natural vegan products are natural under fluctuating temperatures, and do not in any way affect the product's performance or shelf life.
I love balms for their dewy finish and intensely nourishing properties. This Tigress Face Balm is great for morning and evening application as the final step in your skin care ritual. Not as dewy as most balms so is great for those who love a more matte finish. And a MUST for those of you with skin that tends to be on the oily side, or blemish prone, or with acne.
