The Balm Balm Fragrance Free Face Balm basically replaces a moisturiser in your skin care routine, but feels somewhat different to classic creams and lotions. I would describe it as somewhere between a lotion and gel in initial texture and this thins out between warm fingers. You then simply apply as you would a moisturiser but you don’t need much to get decent coverage. I was very impressed with the Balm Balm Fragrance Free Face Balm, after initial doubts on seeing the nature and texture of the product. It actually feels lovely when on the skin and does a great job of moisturising. Whilst aimed at facial care, the balm is also great for areas of dry skin on other parts of the body. Because you don’t need to use much to be effective, the 30ml tube also lasts for ages, making the price of about £6 pretty good value.

I tried this out mainly on bathroom surfaces where it definitely helped to shift ‘tide marks’. It was also effective at removing children’s crayon marks from wooden surfaces! Having used a variety of other brands in the past, I found the Ecover cream cleaner to be just as effective. Retailing at around £1-£1.30 for a 500ml bottle, the Ecover cream cleaner is a little more expensive than supermarket own-brand products, but is competitively priced against the bigger names in this area.

The new Green Product Review section of UK Energy Saving is now up and running. The aim of the reviews is to provide visitors with our thoughts on green products in order to assist when deciding what to try for themselves.
You will see that there are just a few reviews on the site at the moment but this will increase steadily over the coming weeks. Each review will also be posted on the blog so you can also keep up to date that way (see the right hand side of the blog for ways to subscribe so that you find out whenever there is a new post).
If you have any of your own comments on any of the reviews you can either comment on the blog or email us at email@example.com.

Sorry for the recent 'blog silence', which was due to annual leave! Now that I am back, however, I can let you know about our upcoming product review section. We are planning to launch this soon and hope to offer our unbiased opinions of a wide variety of green consumer products. If you have any products you would like to put forward for review, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can also use this email address if you wish to be informed once the review section is live.
We hope that this new section of UK Energy Saving will help to provide our visitors with even more information on energy saving and green living, allowing them to make more informed decisions.
