I am a bit wedded to my Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream which seems to work for most things - dry skin, cuts, bruises, chapped lips, cold sores... but I have now discovered a green and organic 'miracle' product that is just as good!
Móa Green Balm is a waxy moisturiser with the killer ingredients of yarrow and tea tree oil. Apparently yarrow has been used for thousands of years and was reported to have been used on wounds in the Trojan War so why we don't use it all the time I just don't know. Mix that with the antiseptic qualities of tea tree oil and that is why I think it's such a great product.
It works as a moisturiser and can even be used on your hair as a mask. It heals rashes, eczema, nappy rash, and is 100% organic. You can also add it to hot water and honey and gargle with it for sore throats. I had the start of a cold sore, put some on and it vanished almost immediately (I kid you not).
Don't be put off by the fact that Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan - she does have some good ideas. Buy it today at Cult Beauty for £12.50 for 50ml.
