With just one whiff, Kahina Giving Beauty’s Fez Hand and Body Balm transports you to the most exotic spice market, comforting your senses with the warmth of clove, cumin, vetiver and rose.

{Kahing Giving Beauty sent me a sample of its Fez Hand and Body Balm for review. It costs $48 for a 1-ounce Miron glass jar.}

This dense, rich hand and body balm also cloaks your skin in a protective layer, sealing in moisture and restoring softness to chapped, cracked skin.

A wonderful bedside treat, Kahina Giving Beauty’s Fez Hand & Body Balm calms the mind and comforts you to rest. While scented to spiced perfection, Fez doesn’t evoke the same invigorating sensation as something like peppermint.

It takes you to a place where fireplaces crackle and mulled spices and rose petals gently bubble on the stovetop. It’s an exotic autumn at its finest — without a touch of pumpkin. Layers of florals and citrus keep Fez from becoming too “spice market” and instead lend a sexy sophistication to the intoxicating blend.

Besides the unique aroma, this balm also brings together carrot seed oil, shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil and mango nut butter to relieve parched skin.

Generous shots of calendula, known for its ability to heal irritated skin, further soothes and nourishes.

Beyond its functional appeal for dry skin (try this balm on your feet if you’re feeling especially indulgent!), this balm is one of three Fez-scented products in Kahina Giving Beauty’s collection.

If you’re into scent layering like I am, you’ll want to pick up Fez Body Serum and Fez Perfume Oil to complete your smell-good wardrobe.

When Kahina first came out with Fez, it was in the form of Body Serum (listed on my favorites under body oils!). I fell hard for this mysterious scent; it was so different from anything else I owned (I’m a floral gal).

It wasn’t long after slathering myself in several bottles of Fez Body Serum that I asked Katharine, founder of Kahina, to consider bringing Fez to different product types. “I would wear this as a perfume,” I remember saying to her at a Los Angeles beauty event.

Other beauties must have also asked, because here we are with three of the most beautiful, sensual, spicy and exotic products I’ve ever experienced. I own all three and have repurchased the body serum at least three times — it’s that wonderful.

The beauty of Fez Hand and Body Balm is that it doubles as subtle scent on-the-go. Keep this balm in your bag or at your desk for regular moisture — and also for dabs on the neck and pulse points for some additional scent.

The Hand and Body Balm is a great place to start if you’re intrigued by Fez; it’s just $48 and will last you all fall and winter with daily use (yeap, a little goes a long way).

I have a backup jar of this balm ready for me once my current jar runs out. Fez is definitely a staple in my scent wardrobe!
