We are totally sold on it.
True to its name, Honest Beauty Magic Balm is an all-purpose balm that does an A+ job at soothing, highlighting, and providing an all-around flawless finish with just a touch – presto!
What we especially love about this magical natural balm is that it can transform from a lip nourisher to a dewy skin highlighter, but also give dry cuticles some extra love and soften dry skin on your nose during the winter months —how’s that for multitasking?
No wonder then that this Magic Balm is an essential of Jessica Alba’s five-minute morning beauty routine. The Hollywood actress and green beauty entrepreneur says she uses this natural balm to soften her lips, tam flyways, and blur fine lines.
Well, if Honest Beauty Magic Balm is Jessica Alba’s not-so-secret weapon for flawless skin, we are definitely in! Who wouldn’t want to try a celeb-loved beauty product from a someone who glows from every angle?

Ethics: Values that Honest Beauty embraces
One month with the Honest Beauty Magic Balm
We now have one in our desk drawer, one in our beauty cabinet and one in our handbag.
Honest Beauty Magic Balm is a handy miracle natural balm that we didn’t know we needed until we got it (and we can thank Jessica Alba for it).
What we like most about this natural balm is that it’s a multi-tasking product with skin benefits. It’s lightweight, non-greasy, and works for both healing and cosmetics purposes.
Honest Beauty Magic Balm comes with a blend of hydrating and soothing botanical oils like jojoba oil, chamomile, and calendula and can be used pretty much anywhere that needs moisture.
This natural beauty balm softens lips, highlights cheekbones for a dewy glow, moisturizes cuticles, and smoothes the appearance of fine lines. And that’s just a few of the useful ways to use this Magic Balm. It can also be used to soothe your chapped nose after a cold, define or taper unruly eyebrows, style beard or mustache or smooth out end-of-day under-eye concealer creasing. We sometimes even use it to tame flyaway hairs in between meetings.
Although Honest Beauty Magic Balm does have a honey-peach color tint, once you apply the unscented balm, it goes on translucent and melts into the skin smoothly. When used as an eye gloss, the moisturizing balm adds a nice subtle shine and doesn’t feel sticky or greasy on the lid.
The product comes in a compact transparent case that feels very luxe (the clean, minimalistic packaging is an Instagram feed’s dream). Plus it is travel-friendly, so we always keep it handy for our next long-haul flight.
Radiant-looking skin, right this way.
The balm is formulated without parabens, gluten, silicones, petrolatum, synthetic fragrances or dyes.
How to use the Magic Balm?
Simply dab a touch of balm anywhere you want — lips, cheekbones, cuticles, elbows, you name it. It can conceal small blemishes but also help with healing and moisturizing.
Who it’s for
It’s for all skin types really. No wonder it’s one of Honest Beauty’s best selling products of all time.
