This product is Paraben-Free, and the ingredients are as listed. Shea Butter, Sweet almond oil beeswax cetyl alcohol, Avocado oil and Argan oil. The consistency of the balm is interesting its not smooth but feels grainy at first almost like a scrub and not a balm, but as you rub it on your face it smooths out and leaves behind soft moisturized skin.
And I must say this stuff has hydrated my skin like you wouldn't believe. It takes very little and will last me for a good amount of time. It also doesn't leave my skin feeling oily or greasy and the dryness is gone. I apply this in the mornings and evenings just on the spots that need the hydration the most. Those areas needing it the most are around my nose, chin, and forehead. Even adding my normal moisturizer over top its still doesn't clog my pours or cause any break outs. So if your face is in need of some hydration this winter I highly suggest you pick this up at your local Target and apply right away. :) Your face with thank you for it.
