A few weeks ago I received a lovely tube of All You Need is Me by True Organic of Sweden. Thank you Detox Market! I was initially intrigued by the simple, modern packaging, but also the simple lineup of organic ingredients. They call this a “high performance natural and organic ointment.” An intensive balm with no mineral oil, silicones, parabens, sulfates, perfumes, colors, or alcohol. On the tube it also includes water on its “NO” list…and I’m not sure why they consider water to be bad, but anyway… going along with it.
It contains six ingredients and no more, which relieves a little stress that usually goes along with deciphering labels, lets be honest. It contains:
It does indeed feel like an ointment and though it does feel a bit tacky at first, it soaks in within a few minutes. I’ve been using it daily for keeping the cold air from ruining my cuticles. It can be used as an all-purpose balm though – anywhere you have dry, chapped skin, elbows, on your lips, sunburn, insect bites, gardening hands, ends of your hair even…
I really put it to the test last week when I was doing a lot of wire work with my hands (making adornments for my biz Violette & Iris). After making a wired hair vine my fingertips are sore and dry and in need of extra TLC. I applied this balm overnight and woke up with hands ready for more work! I’m impressed. Also if you’re wondering there is no scent to this. I can almost smell the scent of the natural oils in it, but barely. No added scent!
I’d definitely recommend this for anyone, unless you’re vegan…which I don’t think this is (because of the beeswax). You can find the 15ml size (seen here) at the Detox Market for $19. Two thumbs up!*DisclaimerThis post includes a pr sample and affiliate link and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking my links.

This sounds like such a great product! Do you think it would be suitable for using on the face underneath powder foundation if I used a very small amount?

You could spot treat if you had a particular area of your face that was super dry, but I don’t see this as something to put all over your face. There are so many other face creams that are amazing – the Red Flower arctic berry cloud milk cream being my favorite at the moment.

Hi! Tina from True organic of Sweden here, thank you for your lovely review. I put no water to show that there are no cheap fillers, only potent active ingredients, nothing else. Also it makes it a fantastic climate cream to protect your or your kids face when skiing or in icy cold weather. In the winter, I use it as an overnight face mask. Thanks again, all the best, Tina
