The Many Uses of ULTRABALM

Ultrabalm is Lush's natural, petroleum-free alternative to Vaseline. I absolutely LOVE this product, and originally only bought it to use as a lip balm. But after much research and experimenting I have come to find that Ultrabalm can be used for so much more!

Here are the uses I have found for it so far:

  • Lip Balm
  • Lip Gloss
  • Lip Night Treatment
  • Lip Scrub: Apply generously to lips and scrub with an old toothbrush for the softest lips
  • Eye Cream
  • Eyelash Treatment: Apply before bedtime for longer, thicker eyelashes
  • Clear Mascara
  • Tame Unruly Eyebrows
  • Makeup Remover: Great replacement for Lush's 'Babyface'
  • Removes Eyelash Glue
  • Night Cream
  • Scrub: Mix with sea salts for great exfoliation
  • Use Under Eyeshadow for a Shiny, Wet-look
  • Apply to Cheeks for a Dewy Look
  • Nails and Cuticles
  • Elbows
  • Knees
  • Heels
  • Foot Moisturiser: Apply at night and cover with socks
  • Use After Shaving: To avoid unsightly bumps, razor burns and sore skin
  • Use for Eczema
  • Acts as a Barrier on top of Medicated Creams
  • Reduces Chaffing
  • Use to Firm Neck and D√©colletage 
  • Heals Tattoos and Creates a Barrier
  • Aids Healing After Piercings
  • Heals and soothes Grazes
  • Aids Healing After Surgeries
  • Apply to Dry Spots Before Fake Tanning
  • Use on Sun-burnt/Peeling Skin
  • Use to Soothe Burns
  • Relieves Itching
  • Apply to Insect Bites
  • Reduces the Appearance of Scars
  • Great for Colds: Apply around the nose to prevent sore, cracked skin from the overuse of tissues
  • Use as a Barrier Against Pet Allergies
  • Use to Ease Rings off Fingers
  • Use to Enhance Perfumes/Scents
  • Use as a Hair-Dye Barrier
  • Apply to Ends of the Hair to Hide Split Ends
  • Apply to Ends of Hair Before Using Straighteners
  • Apply to a Tick to Remove it: I found this one out from a fellow dog owner. Apparently tick's breathe through their skin, so if you put this on them they will literally stop biting and back away!

Its amazing how many uses one product can have. And I'm sure there are so many more!
As I find more they will be added to the list. 
If you have any other uses or tips, please leave a comment and it will be added :)

I would love to hear your ideas!

  2. To begin with I didn't even know you could use it for that! I only found out via the Lush Forum that it could be used as a make-up remover. I loved the idea and wanted to find other ways it could be used.
    Thanks for your comment :)
    Let me know if you try any of these out x

  5. I definately recommend this. The only thing with it is it has a slightly grainy texture, not smooth like vaseline. BUT, once applied, the grains quickly melt away so don't be put off.
    Plus Ultrabalm will last a long time (unless you want to use it for EVEYTHING on this list!) x

  10. Oh no,
    well if you're ever tempted to shop online (which I'm always worried to do with Lush as its nice to know whether you actually like the smell of things) I would definitely recommend this.
    It just smells faintly like candles, but what it does is amazing :) x
