Body Shop Amazonian Saviour Multi-Purpose Balm

The Body Shop*** world was all in a flurry over this little pot of wonder… so what is it? It’s a multitasking balm that is said to improve the appearance of tattoos (like a refresher for faded tattoos), and fade skin marks and scars amongst other things. What’s more, it is made up of only 9 base ingredients. Nothing fancy, just ingredients that do their job.


So what are those 9 ingredients?

  1. Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil/Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil
  2. Cera Alba/Beeswax/Cire d’abeille
  3. Polyglyceryl-3 Beeswax
  4. Helianthus Annuus Seed Cera/Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Wax
  5. Orbignya Oleifera Seed Oil
  6. Carapa Guaianensis SeedOil
  7. Bisabolol
  8. Tocopherol
  9. Citric Acid

This retails for £9 for 50ml, and £1.30 from every sale goes to The Body Shop’s Building Bio Bridges Programme. This promotes conservation by funding Bio-Bridges to connect land and create sustainable communities.

That’s all good and well but does the product itself work?

Well yes and no. It depends on what you expect.

It is an intensive moisturising balm and is great on small patches of dry skin. I use it on my knees, elbows and my knuckles which get surprisingly dry.

I have used it on a friends foot tattoo and while it didn’t give an immediate vibrancy to her faded black text tattoo, it did give instant hydration and smoothness. I would expect that tattoo ‘refreshed appearance’ would be something that would build up over time as the skin heals and repairs.

I used it on my daughters last remaining eczema flare-up skin and that healed nicely over a few days and the old skin flaked off revealing nice fresh moisturised skin underneath.

Value-wise it is a little smaller than I expected. Much smaller. That said, it is a solid balm that changes to more of an oily balm upon warming in the fingers. I’ve used daily this for 2 weeks now and it’s not even made a dent. It is deceptively small, or shall I say, small but mighty.

Yay or nay

My first impressions are positive but I’ll be using this on various scars and dry patches over the next 23 months to really see the cumulative effects. In the meantime, I’d love to hear from those of you with tattoos that had faded over time. Have you tried this? Did you notice any differences after 1 week, 1 month or longer?


As always, hit me up on the socials for makeup bants and a little debate.
