Product Review – XO Balm & Olverum Bath Oil

I had the pleasure of trying these products – XO Balm & Olverum Bath Oil last week, and I have been loving it. If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for sometime, you would know how much I enjoy reviewing products, so you don’t have to. That is where these product review posts come in.

Here are my thoughts on both products –


XO Balm

I was eager to try out this XO Balm. The cold season is kind of here now. So it’s all about retaining moisture and protecting the skin from the harsh cold weather.


XO Balm is effective in soothing and relieving dryness, sensitive and irritated skin. This multifunctional beauty solution is used for all areas of the face, body and hair to hydrate and nourish.

XO Balm offers a natural alternative to prescription products for those suffering with severe dry skin, eczema and dermatitis. The natural beauty solution also has many other uses, making it an ideal on-the-go essential.

  1. I love the compact packaging. It is really pretty. The name – XO Balm, is also cool too.
  2. The fact that it is a multi-functional beauty is a plus. You don’t have to have to take 3 or 4 different products, when you have this Balm.
  3. It is suitable for sensitive skin.
  4. It is preservative-free.
  5. I like the fact that the ingredients used are all natural.

  1. I found the texture too hard.


Olverum Bath Oil

I love this Olverum Bath Oil. I think it is an amazing bath oil and I would tell you why.


A unique and luxurious aromatic blend of essential oils which combine to ease stress and relax tension in both mind and body, bringing you back to your complete and natural self.

Olverum Bath Oil is highly concentrated and only half a capful (5ml) is needed per bath. Accordingly, virtually all the oil is absorbed by the skin leaving no greasy residue in the bath after use.

Add half a capful to a run warm bath. Disperse the oil with your hand. Relax, restore, renew.

  1. I love the fragrance. It smells amazing and relaxes me.
  2. The bottle is quite pretty.
  3. A little goes a long way. A 125ml bottle should be enough for 25 baths.
  4. It left my skin feeling smooth and silky.
  5. I like the fact that it is made from natural essential oils.

Why you should write a book

This why you should write a book post is like a follow-up post to the 5 lessons I learned from writing a book post. There are so many people out there who want to write a book some day. Sadly very few follow through with their aspirations to have their book published. The main reason why not many people meet their dream of writing a book is because they get overwhelmed by the thought of it.

I felt this way when I started writing my first book. But my motives were simple: I wanted to write a book that will help people. Making money from book sales was never the primary goal. I just wanted to help and impact people. I also wanted the credibility I knew the book would give me, so I went for it, and How to Cash In as a Blogger was born.

But as good as my intentions were there were moments when I got frustrated along the way. Thankfully these moments didn’t stop me. I kept writing my book.  Little did I know that my perseverance will open doors to opportunities for me in the future. So, if you are thinking of writing a book or if you started and gave up along the way, here are some reasons why you should keep going and write a book.


It will increase your business and personal credibility

When you write and publish your book, it gives you a lot of credibility as an expert in your niche. It is well-known that writing a book takes a lot of time and work. People also believe that only those who know a lot about their niche are the only ones who are able to write books. This makes people trust you and your business even if they haven’t read your book before.


Writing a book elevates you to expert status

While I was writing my book, I was writing a lot about my experiences on the topic. Writing my book gave me the opportunity to share my knowledge with others.

There is this belief that authors are experts as it is only those who know their craft that are able to pass down knowledge and expertise. This is really good as it increases the trust people have in you. People will start looking out for you as someone who knows a lot in your field.


Brings you consulting opportunities

Since being an author requires you to share your knowledge and expertise by writing your book, more people tend to reach out to you for consultation. Your book let’s people know that you are a go-to resource. This makes them see you as someone who is in a better position to advice them anytime they are faced with a problem that is within your niche.


Creates opportunities for speaking engagements

Writing a book could create opportunities for speaking engagements, if you are interested in that sort of attention. Your new status as an authority figure can bring you the attention you need to land speaking gigs.


Helps you sell your other products and services

A good number of people say that selling books is not a profitable venture. The truth is that the real value is not really in how many books you sell, but in how your book markets your other products and services. Those who read your book get to know what business you’re into and consequently would be more willing to buy from you. Your book acts as an avenue to showcase your other work and draw in patronage.


These are just a few reasons why you should write a book. Have you written a book? If yes, please share the title in the comments section.
