Looking for a collagen balm that is easy to apply, and packs all those ingredients we need to boost collagen production? Well, we might just have you covered. Check out our list of collagen balms from these stunning brands, and get your skin glowing.
1. Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm
Elemis Is one of those brands that has reached cult following status. I first came across this brand when I worked in hotels and Elemis Australia was the chosen brand for the bathroom amenities. Not only did the staff like the Elemis Australia products, but it was a drawcard for guests. The two collagen products in the line, are Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm and the Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream. They are not interchangeable but we do prefer the Elemis Cleansing Balm.
The Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm is soft and has a nice texture to it, but it still gives a thorough cleanse to the face. The foamy consistency makes it an ideal cleansing collagen balm to use in your two-step cleansing routine – and would par well with an oily cleanser. You can ditch your make-up remover with this cleansing balm around as it removes it easily!
2. PCA Skin Après Peel Hydrating Balm
We love this hydrating balm from PCA Skin and found it by accident actually when Adore Beauty on their beauty podcast profiled it. While this PCA Australia blam does not necessarily market itself as a collagen balm, the ingredient comes together to create a collagen-boosting formula. If you are looking for something lighter, don’t be put off by the word ‘balm’ – as this one is light, fluffy and glides on easily.
If your skin is dry and in need of repair, the PCA Skin peel hydrating balm contains Aloe Vera and Wheat Germ Oil which aids rapid recovery. Who doesn’t love to see quick results from a new product?
3. Nutra Organics collagen balm
Ok, this is technically a lip balm but it is so nice and a must-have for any man or woman. We totally love the Nutra Organics collagen balm. It is the perfect small size to carry in any bag, and the firm and smooth balm is not too much and is ideal for any time of the day. The collagen balm comes in two blends – natural or vanilla. We have the natural collagen balm and it is quite odourless too, like most Nutra Organics collagen products, which we appreciate first thing in the morning when putting it on.
4. Osmosis Skincare Lift Away Cleansing Balm 80ml
Osmosis Skincare Australia is a Melbourne-made brand, and we love to see it! Osmosis Skincare touts itself as a holistic-medical and wellbeing brand that has been designed to target common and specific skin concerns. The Osmosis Skincare Lift Away Cleansing Balm increases collagen production through ingredients like Elderberry Fruit Juice, Avocado Oil and Mangosteen Fruit Juice.
Like some of the other collagen balms we have mentioned, the Osmosis Skincare balm is super lightweight but packs a punch when it comes to clearing your skin of make-up and grime.
