Fresh-scented and easily absorbed by the skin, this moisturizing balm is definitely one of the things that every woman should have in her purse! I love the versatility of this product. It works great as a moisturizer, make-up remover, and hair tamer. Plus points for using all-natural ingredients! This balm is best applied on slightly wet skin—the product is a little sticky at first and a bit difficult to smear. I didn’t like the packaging, though. The aluminum squeeze tube dispenses too much balm even if you press it gently. Also, the screw on cap is unwieldy to use. The balm’s priced a little too steep. However, this product is perfect for someone who’s into quality and versatility.

I was super excited to try the product since I have been having problem with dry skin and it was my first to try an oil balm after bathing. It’s non-greasy when applied and absorbed quickly. I set it for about 3 -5 minutes as per instruction before rinsing. It has a light herbal scent which I really don’t mind since the scent is gone once washed.
I used the product for more than a week now and I noticed that my skin feels fresh even after applying lotion on mid-day. It has lessened the dryness especially on my legs. The silver tube simply doesn't attract much attention but easy to carry around for a 75 ml size.
I have tried using the balm as a makeup remover but it somehow does not deliver 100%. Right after rinsing, I still see traces of my makeup especially my mascara.
I haven’t tried using the balm as a detangler on my hair though. I’ll stick to using the balm on my skin after cleansing.

I don't use it for my face because I'm scared of getting pimples and I don't use it on my body since I have sensitive skin and even if I didn't, I'm scared that it will be too hard to rinse. So instead, I used it as a leave-on treatment/hair spa treatment. I used it only in the ends of my hair (as suggested) so that I won't get dandruff. It's better if you use shower cap! It's a good detangler and hair softener, but it's not the whole package for me since it doesn't do much to maintain my curls. If you have straight hair, though, it will be so great!

I've been using this for more than a week and so far it delivers. Its a soft balm and has a slight herbal scent that goes away after a while. I'm not sure if its just me but it feels a bit cooling and soothing.

This is great for keeping tangles at bay. I applied it to the ends of my hair and about midway, left it for five (5) minutes then rinsed it off. This is a good alternative to a hair serum and very appealing for ladies who want multitask products in their beauty arsenal. This doesn't work for me as a leave in conditioner though, for reference I have fine straight hair. It might work for ladies with more waves or curls in their hair.

What sold me on this product though is that it worked great as a cuticle balm. My skin gets a bit dry during the -ber months. My cuticles would start peeling and look just plain nasty but this solved that. A pea sized amount was good enough for both hands so a little goes a long way. Its emollient and is easily absorbed into the skin. I applied it before going to bed and I woke up to better looking cuticles, they felt better too.

This also rescued my poor heels from cracks. Applied it overnight after a good scrubbing, for two nights and my heels felt soft in the morning. Like coming from a spa but better. My skin on the heels didn't feel like they were thin or stretched out or over scrubbed, it just felt a lot better and smoother. Would I buy this? A definite Yes!

This product is really great! I waited until I finished half of the tube before writing a review. Even though I know I can use this product for body and face, I used this product first on my hair. The result was amazing. Unlike other conditioners/ moisturizers that made my hair limp, this product moisturized my hair, tamed the frizz, without compromising the volume. I love the feel of my hair afterwards, it was bouncy, soft and shiny! After trying it on my hair, I tried it on my cracked soles. Lotions and other moisturizers didn't work for me even though I used them daily. Lo and behold, this product cured my cracked soles after only using it for a week! Of course it was not 100% cured but the results were visible! My dry and cracked skin was lessened by around 60%-70%! It was amazing! I will continue using this for my cracked soles until it is healed completely.

The only concern I have for this product is its smell. It smells like a strong chemical medication for hair. With this, I didn't use this for my face with fear that it might cause some reaction. But overall, I am very very happy with the product! Will definitely buy its full size!

I've been using this as a conditioner everyday for more than a week now and it makes my hair smoother, tangle-free, and soft. But I haven't used this as a moisturizer or makeup remover because I have oily skin and I might get a lot oilier. This product is good for people who have dry skin/hair, plus it's a multi-purpose product that is great for travel and for those who are conservative. The smell is not that bad but I don't like it. The product comes in an aluminum tube like that of medicinal ointments but only bigger, making it a little harder to get all of the product out of the tube when there is only little left. I've used up half of the 75ml tube in a week so I guess the whole bottle would just last for 2 weeks with my everyday use. But if it is used as a facial moisturizer or makeup remover, I think it will last for about 4-5 weeks.

I will not buy this product coz I have oily skin, but if I have the contrary then maybe I will. My hair is kind of getting a little more oily, too, than what is normal to me.

I did not know that it was not a leave-in product when I chose this sample. As it is, I find it too much of a hassle to use. To be fair, it is an awesome hair conditioner and my girlfriend loves how it can melt even waterproof eye makeup off but it is just way too expensive for those purposes. Cool packaging though.

A 3-in-1 product with a beautiful packaging. Now that's great! What's good about it is that I use it on my face and hair which I am so vain about. Its like a hair conditioner, facial wash and body wash in a tube. I use it to remove my make-up which is impressive because in just 1 cotton pad,all the dirt and make-ups were removed leaving my skin really supple and moisturized after rinsing off with water. I also use it as a hair conditioner and it doesn't weigh my hair down.So overall, it is a good buy!

I never thought I'd see the day when I will use my "hair mask" as a makeup remover and even as a skin softener. But here comes Davines Authentic Moisturizing Balm--a gamechanger. Among the three purposes, I think I am most amazed by how effectively it removes makeup. Initially I thought, knowing Davines, I thought this product would be most golden as a hair treatment; but I was proven wrong. Yes, it did help moisturize and give additional life to my dry ends. but I think I fell in love w this product the most as a makeup remover! It's like a very effective cold cream. It removes makeup without drying the skin... then when I rinse my face after, my skin is soft and supple--and makeup free!

I've never heard of Davines Authentic Moisturizing Balm until Sample Room introduced it to me. I purposely used this product all over my body. True to its name, it made my skin smoother and softer because of its excellent moisturizing effect. However, it is strongly advisable to thoroughly rinse off afterwards because it feels greasy if not completely washed. The scent is just okay, I have no complain but I prefer light scented/unscented skin care products. Another thing I like is the packaging, it makes the product very convenient to bring anywhere.

Initially, I picked out Davines Authentic Moisturing Balm because I knew it was one of the more expensive products around, and to think that a sizeable 75ml could cost P100 just made my heart palpitate, hehe. :)

Anyway, I wasn't too fond of the balm's menthol/medicinal scent when I first applied a pea-sized amount to my face and upper arms (where I slightly had "chicken skin") - I also put some on the ends of my hair. After letting it stay for a few minutes and rinsing, I was very, very pleased how smooth my hair, arms and face was! I found the tips of my hair having that bounce, shine and smoothness even after blow-drying, when usually my hair would turn so frizzy when dry. Am on my fourth day, and pleased that my hair, upper arms and face are so soft!

Hopefully this product would be also available in regular malls, as it is more accessible than salons... and I hope Davines will produce a smaller (and cheaper) variant for those wanting to try it first. Highly recommended!

I love anything that multitask, so its not a big surprise that I love the Davines Moisturizing Balm. Tried it on my hair but it is too heavy for my thin limp hair but it does a good job on my skin. I tend to have drier skin in the BER months and just using it after shower spares me the need to put lotion on my body.

Let's face it. It's not that easy to find good stuffs for your hair. But Davines Authentic Moisturizing Balm is a must try. I used it on my hair for a week and I noticed that I can no longer see split ends and dryness. Also, it makes my crown of glory tangle free for hours. Texture is creamy and oily at the same time. The downside for me is the smell. It's not that pleasant. Maybe because ingredients are organic. Other than that, it does wonders. Will definitely purchase when this tube runs out.

This product delivers the benefits of using oil without being too rich or greasy. For the face, it works well with my cleansing sponge. It removed the dry skin flakes and didn't leave skin red and irritated. I love it as hair conditioner. My hair is really shiny, smooth and soft, not frizzy, hair doesn't stick together, the ends are neat, no fly-aways and it feels naturally healthy and lively. Packaging is hygenic but sometimes after removing the cap the products squirts out even without squeezing the tube. Scent is light and pleasant for me. I love that it is paraben, colorant & PEG free. For me this is worth splurging, considering that you can use it for the entire body and it is a 98% natural product plus my hair looks really happy. It can be a part of my once or twice a week pampering products.

A must have for girls who likes multi-purpose products. I love using this as my hand cream and my hair leave on. I only use this at the ends of my hair and I don't need to rinse it off. Using this as my hand cream makes my skin soft and smooth even my bf swears to its effectiveness in his flaky hands. 5-stars for this one!

Great moisturizng product. Used it as a makeup remover and the makeup just glides away, leaves my face moisturized and subtle. I also love it as a hair conditioner, it doesn't weigh down my hair. My hair is shiney and never heavy nor greasy. I feel like it is nurshing my hair from within. The smell is a bit off though, smells like sunblock; however it does go away after an hour or two.

With just 3 mins on hair, you will really feel the softness even before rinsing. I love how the smell makes me relaxed that will make you enjoy its application and of course the moisturizing effect on your hair and body. Removes impurities and makeup well at the same time.

I have to honestly say that I wasn't impressed the minute I took a sniff. It reminded me of salon chemicals used to treat hair. But since it comes with a hefty price tag [it has to be good, right?] and considering all the rage about this I decided to brave the smell and slather the balm on my hair. Imagine my surprise when my hair came out so soft and tangle free. Although the smell leaves a lot to be desired, I am very forgiving especially when my hair comes out all soft and manageable sans the frizz. It's perfect for "pamper me" days or when stress really gets the best of me and my hair [lol]. I have yet to try it on my face and/or body because I already have my go-to products for those. With that said, I might consider buying.

I've been using this project for almost a week now and I must say it does the job. I had my hair colored and lately it had been a pain to comb even with hair conditioner, but when I started using this moisturizing balm I don't need hair conditioner anymore. It does the job even better than my current hair conditioner. It also moisturized my hands at the same time. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of the scent, but that's my only complaint. I would buy this again.

I just tried Davines' Authentic Moisturizing Balm on my face again this morning and I'm really impressed by it. It left my face supple, soft and feeling clean. I think the smell of this moisturizinf balm is not bad at all to think that it is made of organic materials. This is a good addition to my vanity list since it can so much more than moisturizinf your face! It can also do wonders for your hair, making it easy to style, too! :) Good job!
