A few months ago, we learned of Julie's crush on our Odorless balm : our 100% natural balm, fragrance and allergen free, suitable for all skin types. p >
Who is Julie?
Julie Bourges, aka @douzefevrier, was planning a career as a professional gymnast when her fairground costume burst into flames. She was then 16 years old and 40% of her body was 3rd degree burnt. After months of coma and hospitalization, she is struggling physically and mentally to learn to live again. The road is long and strewn with pitfalls, but Julie's courage, will and strength are taking over!
A few years later, she decided to take to Instagram and quickly became a symbol of resilience and positivity.
Because of the burns, her skin is extremely dry and needs to be nourished deeply, so she was seduced by our multi-purpose balm 100% natural, eco-responsible and made in France. The nourishing balm is an essential part of her beauty routine thanks to its many uses: body care, facial care, lip care, hand care, makeup remover ... The balm is also effective against eczema, a theme at the heart of a article that you love on our site.
Julie inspires us on a daily basis: she is positive, radiant, natural and authentic. She perfectly embodies the values dear to our Les Petits Prödiges brand and we immediately wanted to work with her and create HER balm for her.
Julie grew up in sunny Provence, where thousands of orange blossoms are picked each year. This scent is therefore very special in his eyes. Our perfumer Nose has therefore created a 100% natural, delicate and floral Orange Blossom scent, which transports us to the sun. An olfactory journey in a way. And the work continued until the magic happened and we all fell in love with this delicious smell!
Today Julie uses the balm to care for her hair, lips and her fragile skin. In fact, she made a nice video of it:
This balm is a concentrate of prodigious active ingredients. Among them are in particular:
- royal jelly: fights against aging of the skin, strengthens nails and hair, soothes dry and sensitive skin.
- honey: hydrates, nourishes, soothes and promotes cell renewal.
-sweet almond oil: nourishes & protects skin and hair, soothes and acts as a natural anti-aging.
-olive oil: contains omega 6 and 9 which improve the elasticity of the skin, protect it and hydrate it.
