I developed Nigella Face Rescue after a client suffering from Rosacea could find no relief from dry irritated skin. Oils were chosen for their calming and anti-inflammatory properties and have come together in a magical potion to calm and soften irritated skin like no other. When I gave it to her to test, she called me to thank me for “rescuing her skin”. It didn’t have a name at the time, hence Nigella Skin Rescue Balm. Its primary purpose is to provide nourishment, anti-oxidants, and soften dry rough skin.

HOW TO USE
Apply to clean face after toning and water-based serums. Apply a pea size amount to your hand, rub together to warm and then apply to face avoiding the eye area. Take time to gently massage into skin. If it feels oily, you have applied too much so gently blot with a tissue. You can apply your regular moisturizer over or leave as is.
