Reviwing Olio E Osso's Tinted Balms

Is THIS Multitasker the Secret to Dewy Blusher in Seconds?

You know how easy it is to buy a load of different products but then just find yourself coming back to the same one or two over and over again because you love them so much?

Well for me over the last couple of summers and autumns, it’s come down Bybi’s Babe Balm Bronze (such a genuinely lovely multi-purpose product) and Olio E Osso’s Tinted Balm in No 8 Persimmon; two warm, coppery tones that look lovely in the sunnier months.


Olio E Osso’s Bold Balm

In particular, Olio E Osso’s stunning burnt-orange blusher leaves a dewy wash of dark coral on cheeks and lips – perfect for a sun-kissed post-beach look. Of course, the success of blush lies mainly in finding the perfect blusher shade for your own skin tone, but for those who like warm coral shade, this is lovely.

Containing shea butter, olive oil and beeswax formula, this balm doesn’t pull the skin as I apply (at least not here in the heat) and doesn’t block my pores or feel greasy (like dewy formulas occasionally can).

As an added bonus, the whole line is Cruelty-free.

Great for: A dewy pop of summer colour. Natural, skin-friendly formula fans. Cruelty-free.

Not-so-great for: Those very sensitive to essential oils as this contains grapefruit oil (which on the plus side does give this a lovely scent). It is a fairly small product at 10g but also pretty well pigmented so I’m not running out in a hurry.

What other people have to say

Customers on the Olio E Osso website are raving about this product, with one saying “I love how this product adds natural color/glow to my dark skin, creating a natural polished look. It was recommended by a colleague. I like using it paired with evanhealy’s tinted oil serum foundation.”

Another writes “First I ordered the set of samples for colors I might like which is such a help in determining what works for your skin. Two colors worked great. Then I ordered the color I liked and so pleased with the vibrant yet natural feel and look the balm added to my lips and face.

“I’m not a lipstick wearer and these are perfect for making your lips land smile look gorgeous. Moisture is amazing for lips and zero weird taste from the product that you get with some balms.”

Olio E Osso’s Tinted Balm is £31.00 on the Debenhams UK website/$28.00 on the Olio E Osso US website
