'Beach Bum' is a modern fragrance that is fresh and breezy, the vibe is laid back and relaxed with summer vibes and tunes, imagine seagull choirs, cool breezes and hot looking dudes and dudettes showing off bodies they worked hard at to maintain during the colder months. This fragrance is fresh and funky and so good that it is of the intention to square up to the strong competition of coconut fragranced suntan lotion, a smell we all know and love all too well! It is a fragrance that will appeal to a very wide spectrum of men and their partners, and we won't be surprised if we come across a young Captonian surfer high-fiving a middle aged khaki clad mielieboer with the words; 'Bruuuuuu you are wearing the same enfusion as me ballie, let's go for a brew!' The top notes of the rising tide is Bergamot, Tangerine and Lotus leaves, the medium notes drifting in from the beach are Drift wood, Rosewood, Sea breeze, and Orange flower water, while the base notes of this fragrance barrels in with Amber crystals, Rich Musk and Tonka.
The name 'My Bliksem' was derived from the amazement we experienced when we first compared this product to other mainstream products that are out there. Typical utterances you may need to exclaim are; 'My Bliksem die goed voel bedonnerd lekker op my vel' or 'My Bliksem hoekom vind ek nou eers uit van die puik produk', or 'My Bliksem man, wie het gesê jy mag MY MB gebruik!!!??? If you use Google to translate phrases above you may think I am talking about the weather, I'm not, just know it feels damn good on the skin!
We have formulated this balm with a huge focus on sustainable skincare. Branding, marketing hype, appearance and cost all took a backseat to the primary objective, to produce a balm that feels damn good on your skin and takes the job of nourishing and protecting your skin very seriously. Fragrance preferences are something that is quite unique to each and every user, and for this reason we have developed no less than 12 differently fragranced balms to allow you to find one that really fits your personality, style and liking. Use less product in the mornings and apply more liberally before bedtime. This balm can be used at any time and anywhere, so keep a few jars at home, work, in the sports bag and even in your car, use whenever you feel a bit ‘rough and dry’. The balm will also do an excellent job anywhere on your body where relief is required from burns, chafing, insect bites and dry skin.
This balm is unlike anything out there, it is made right here in South Africa using only natural main ingredients sourced from small scale farmers and businesses. This balm is highly concentrated and is very economical, it contains no water, preservatives or chemicals so a little goes a long way, a dollop as small as your pinky finger nail or less is all that is required to cover your entire face and neck area. If your skin looks too shiny or feels oily after massaging into your face and neck for 30 to 60 seconds, you are more than likely using too much, it is really that simple. Unlike most modern balms and aftershaves there are no liquids that will evaporate after application, whatever you apply is absorbed by your skin, feeding, protecting and nourishing it to a state of natural well being.
The main ingredient for this series of balms is Highveld grass fed tallow that have been processed by using water directly from the earth and coarse sea salt from the Kalahari desert, to this we have added some lovely plant oils and butters; Virgin cold pressed Olive oil from the fairest Cape, Shea butter all the way from Ghana, Beeswax and Propolis from Gauteng and a touch of cold pressed Coconut oil from beautiful Mozambique. Perfectly natural skin food made for folks who can distinguish between buying a great product versus dropping cash on an extensively marketed brand.
The product has no colorants in it, texture and color (off white to golden yellow) is determined by the ingredients and oils used in the specific balm. The tallow and essential oils used both play a part, and texture can vary from smooth, hard and creamy to soft and airy with small particles of oils or fats in suspension.
The tub contains 100 ml of soothing goodness, refills will be available soon at around R100 bucks a pop, so hang on to your tin!
