I really like the texture of this balm it is thick and spreads really well. There is a slight smell but it is pleasant and not overwhelming. It has worked well for a moisturizer the few times I have used it.

This face balm is made with dry or maturing skin in mind. Our Tallow Face Balm for Dry or Maturing Skin is deeply moisturizing to help restore your skin's natural balance!

We add therapeutic-grade Lavender and Frankincense essential oils to this product because of their skin soothing and anti-aging properties—and because they smell fantastic! Additionally, carrot seed and helichrysum essential oils add a little sun and wrinkle protection. This balm helps your skin feel hydrated and protected all day.

I tried this face balm for the first time and really like how soft and moist my skin feels. I even put a bit on my hands. :-) The only reasonI don't give it 5 stars is that it is so thick/slow to melt that I struggle putting it on. Yes, I admit I am a bit impatient. But I will continue using it although I may mix it with a bit of Jojoba oil to make it spread easier.
I just discovered the BGG line and I love everything I have tried. I tried this after getting a sample and WOW....what a difference it has made in my skin. won't be without it.
I received a sample of this and absolutely fell in love. I’ve been using all natural products that I really like but received my sample as I ran out of the others and I’m totally hooked. My face felt and looked so smooth!
