Kristin reviews two intensive anti-aging balms with hyaluronic filling spheres, one is a multi-purpose balm and the other a lip balm – both by Rodial
Rodial glam balm™ MULTI is an intensive anti-ageing balm. With 3D Hyaluronic Filling Spheres, this multi purpose balm instantly hydrates to smooth skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while Calendula, Shea Butter and Vitamin E soothe and restore moisture to promote elasticity.

The Rodial Glam Balm Multi is my other favorite Rodial product. This is almost like a face oil because as you massage it into your skin it turns into a creamy oil. I prefer this type of texture to a typical face oil during the winter months. You can really feel the vitamin E seeping into your skin and the elasticity returning almost immediately if you wake up dry like I do.
The heat in my apartment is a little excessive so Rodial Glam Balm Multi is a must! I put it on my neck and hands too. I also love all the moisturizing and calming natural oils and extracts in this product like sunflower oil, calendula extract, pomegranate extract, bergamont oil, grapefruit oil, and lavender oil to name a few.

I’ve also tried the Rodial Glam Balm Lip and think it’s fantastic…
Rodial ‘Glam Balm™’ LIP – $25.00 nordstrom.com
Rodial glam balm™ LIP is a rose flavoured & scented special formula designed to plump & fill the lip area, while repairing dry and chapped lips. Filling Spheres inject volume to plump lips and fill fine lines, smoothing imperfections for a flawless appearance. Rose Wax & Shea Butter nourish and soothe chapped lips, while Vitamin E protects against environmental damage.
It reminds me of a hybrid lip treatment – half By Terry Baume de Rose and half Sunday Riley Crème Lip Gloss. It has the soft luxurious feel and smell of Balm de Rose, while it finishes with a sheer non-tacky glaze like Riley’s Gloss.
Their is no shimmer or sparkle in the Glam Balm Lip, so it’s great for a nighttime treatment or to layer over a lipstick color. I also love how shiny and luscious it makes the lips look. It really does provide a healthy and plump glow!
The container the Glam Balm Lip comes in is huge and will last a very long time. The best part about it is that the cap doubles as a mirror so you can apply the glam Balm anytime and anywhere you please, without worrying about getting it all over your face! I don’t know if this clever packaging was on purpose, but it’s brilliant all the same!
