Recently I made a video about my skin care. Today I would like to review one of the products I showed in this video: Decleor Aroma Night Ylang Ylang Purifying Night Balm.

Product description:

At night, the skin’s biological rhythm changes: its cells are repaired and regenerated. DECLÉOR, the Cosmetic Aromatherapy expert, is taking advantage of this special time to care for combination to oily skin. This 100% natural, dry-finish balm is concentrated in Essential Oils to help to:
– deep cleanse, purify and reduce excess sebum (Madagascan Ylang Ylang, Sage and Rosemary Essential Oils),
– tighten the appearance of pores and revive the radiance of the complexion (Lemon Essential Oil),
– reduce imperfections and soothe the skin (Lavender Essential Oil).

Result: On waking, the skin is soft and clear. Night after night, it recovers its natural balance.*

My opinion:

This is definitely not a typical night cream as we’re used to. This balm is very different from anything else I’ve ever tried before. The first distinguishing feature is its scent. Decleor is the brand that makes use of aroma therapy in their products and you can definitely feel that. This balm smells very good (on my opinion) but it is a strong scent, not everyone will like it. Do you know what is the most important thing in aroma therapy? You have to like the scent. Otherwise the healing effect will not be achieved. So if you don’t like the scent of this balm, you might better try other balms from Decleor. The next thing making it so special is its texture. I might to say it is like butter, except it is fat-less. It is a balm that has no fat inside, very awkward. It’s far from a cream that you apply on your face and go to bed. Here, you have to follow technology. I take a tiny bit of this balm (which is good as it will last for a long time). Then I rub it between my hand palms, making the Decleor Ylang Ylang Night Balm soft. Then I push my hands on my face. I repeat it several times and only then I start rubbing it carefully. Now the result is truly wonderful. It does cleanse my face invisibly at night! I am impressed. My pores look much cleaner than they used to be. I didn’t suffer from break outs before using this balm but I can say my face does look better, as my pores are clean, my skin is soft and glowy. The effect is like when I used creams containing AHA/BHA acids last winter. But those creams did dry my skin out. This balm has the same result but my skin feels good! It doesn’t dry my skin out at all. It is not moisturizing or nourishing but my skin just feels good. I’m happy I tried this out!
