Tigress Face Balm
What is it? Tigress is a soft, melty balm designed to work for combination, oily, acne prone as well as balanced skin types and smells like the skincare equivalent of Forest Bathing.
Notes from the Curator: Ava crafted Tigresss to be a deeply penetrating balm that invigorates the skin tissue, heals inflammation and balances excessive oil production, and firms skin in the long run. It also protects from moisture loss and from the wind and cold.
Let’s get Nerdy: Tigress contains butterss like Ucuuba and Kokum, oilss like Sapote, Green Coffee Bean Oils, potent plant extracts like Usnea lichen extract which contributes to the speedy healing of breakouts.
- About the Brand
Earthwise Beauty was created by Ava Zhan Ava grew in Poland and moved to the U.S. and worked as an editor for a major U.S. publisher. She felt compelled to make and share her love of natural ingredients and skincare crafted from medicinal plants, that felt more satisfying to her than the skincare she found in stores. And so Earthwise was born. Using Ava's products feels like walking deep into lush living forests.
- How to Use
Apply day and night or only at night all over the face or just on the oily or acne-prone areas. Keep away from excessive heat (above 80 degrees F) for maximum shelf life.
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.
Allergic reactions to ucuuba butter and usnea lichen are rare but possible. Customers with sensitive skin are advised to test a sample first.
For acne-prone, congestion-prone, combination, oily, and hyperpigmentation-prone skin types. We recommend that customers with sensitive skin order a sample and test it over the course of several days. Oftentimes, the skin needs a day or a few to adjust to these new ingredients and then begins to tolerate the balm well.
