It had me at those two words — everything balm. I love a rescue product, and I recently discovered Swisspers Naturals Aloe Everything Balm ($10.99) when I was browsing the aisles of Priceline. It's been a staple in my handbag ever since. Up there with the paw paw creams and rose hips of the beauty world, aloe vera is soothing, moisturising and has super duper healing qualities. Some people (like me) even insist on maintaining their very own aloe vera plant at home. If I'm suffering from sunburn (naughty) or an area of my skin just needs some good old TLC, I cut off a stem and squeeze out the gel sitting inside. So good! But for something more portable, the Swisspers balm is perfect. You can use it as a moisturiser, a lip balm, on your cuticles, on cracked heels, cuts and grazes, and, wait for it — I even use a tiny bit on a spool brush to sculpt my brows. Whiz, bang, wow.
