The Shiffa Rose Bliss Balm is without a doubt the most extravagant product I own and one of the very few things in my beauty stash that I actually ration. Since my summer glow is now a distant memory and indoor heat is about to wreck havoc on my skin, this rich opulent balm is back on my vanity to keep this body looking haute. Dry and flaky what? Yeah, no.
It was almost a year ago that I met the Founder of Shiffa Beauty, Dr. Lamees Hamdan at a press event in New York. A highlight of the visit was experiencing the Rose Bliss Balm. It’s difficult to get excited about a body moisturizer, but this unique formula is undeniably one of the very best. Created exclusively for professional in-spa use initially, this truly luxurious balm has grown in popularity and is now available in retail. In short, it’s the unicorn of body creams. It exists!
Known for some of the most precious, natural and insanely aromatic formulas in the organic beauty world, Shiffa delivers skincare benefits with one-of-a-kind sensory experiences.
With its thick and almost solid consistency, the Rose Bliss Balm features ultra nourishing Shea, Cocoa, and Mango Seed Butters that are rich in essential fatty acids and provide immediate comfort to parched and dehydrated skin. Infused with healing Honey and an array of protective and restoring oils (Jojoba, Meadowfoam, Evening Primrose and Argan), the balm liquifies on contact and melts into the skin. Emphasizing the ‘treat’ in treatment, Shiffa pairs the highest quality ingredients with fragrant botanicals. The exotic blend of Jasmine, Geranium, Chamomile, Frangipani, and Sandalwood Oils lingers to calm and soothe the senses. This is how escapism smells.
Absolutely genius on any dry patches (if you don’t get ashy knees or elbows, you’re lying), the Shiffa Rose Bliss Balm is a savior on cuticles and even chapped lips and unruly flyaway hair. My favorite way to indulge in this particular Shiffa ritual is to apply the balm after I shower and exfoliate. With the body temperature slightly elevated, the creamy texture turns silky and absorbs in record time. Perhaps it’s the relaxing scent but personally, I prefer to bliss myself before bed.
More than simply nourishing, the Shiffa Rose Bliss Balm is a rejuvenating, anti-aging treatment and a pioneer in prestige organics. The brand’s luxurious aesthetic translates into intricate packaging with a layer of dried rose petals over the balm (use them to infuse your bath water!). This remarkable product is indeed on the pricey side but if you are willing to give up a few Friday nights, it’s worth swapping a few Saturday morning hangovers for a year of pampering sessions.
