Why We Like theBalm
"theBalm is our favourite for all things multi-functional. With almost every formula arriving in a handy travel-size, they're a must-have for when you're on-the-go or travelling overseas. The iconic Bahama Mama Bronzing Powder and Plump Your Pucker Lip Gloss are just two of theBalm's iconic products that accompany us on all of our adventures!"

theBalm Cosmetics was founded by Marissa Shipman in 2004, with the ambition of creating a cosmetics line that would provide people with high-quality beauty quick-fixes.
Their philosophy of 'beauty in five minutes' simply represents the innovation behind the product range. It's designed to give busy women the opportunity to feel and look glamorous in minutes. With this as the creative concept behind the brand, its no wonder they are widely-loved in the industry today.
theBalm focuses on creating ingenious and versatile makeup items -including their best-selling Mary-lou Manizer highlighter and Bahama Mama bronzing powder - which are multi-use and of a compact size, in order to suit travel purposes. Now, eleven years later they continually strive to create multi-functional cosmetics, that are available worldwide.
