This vitamin c-rich balm provides a potent treatment to plump fine lines, repair hyperpigmentation and revive the skin barrier — all while inciting the ultimate glow. Its thick, creamy blend of highly concentrated organic plant butters & oils revitalize sensitive, dry skin; using phytoceramides to help strengthen the skin and improve buoyancy.
Alongside those oils are a team of skin-repairing antioxidants, a phytonutrient infusion, and active botanicals working hard to even out tone and texture. In the summer, we love this balm to repair from sun exposure, whereas in winter it provides a great protective barrier against harsh cold, wind and dryness. Many Apoterra fans also love this balm as an eye cream or lip treatment.

APOTERRA means "of the earth". In 2008, founder Dominique Caron was frustrated with the lack of options that worked for her sensitive breakout-prone skin, that were also safe, eco-friendly, and effective; so she set out on a mission to create effective natural skincare products that checked all of her ethical boxes. She founded Apoterra in 2012, then known as Caru Skincare Co, after years of research, certifications and trial and error. As it turns out, you don't have to compromise your values to achieve healthy, glowing skin.
I bought this kind of on a whim after getting my eyebrows waxed. They recommended it as a night cream to moisturize & help with skin dullness. I've used it once every 2-3 nights for 3 months, and I definitely see a big difference! A tiny amount of this goes a long way. I feel like it's also helped with my skin's texture.

New Skincare Experience
This balm was a different moisturizing experience than I've had before. The formulas is soft but requires a sprinkle of water. Overall, I think it dries a bit too quickly and doesn't leave that overly moisturized feeling for my skin that I was looking for.
I love this moisturizer. My skin needed this so much to battle the dryness of winter. It smells lovely and works beautifully. Thank you.
