Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm

Thursday, 28 March 2013


I wanted to share with you a product that I've recently incorporated into my skin care regime. It's the Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm by Balance me*. Now I've had a fair share of face balms in the past, none too worthy to mention here on the blog, but this, this is amazing.

I'll talk you through the process...

I warm a small amount of the balm in my clean hands, then I gently apply it on my face and neck, massaging the balm with my finger tips in circular motions for about 30 seconds. A sweet zesty scent hits me and the balm glides very smoothly onto my skin.


Then I apply warm water, which turns the balm into a milky consistency, and continue massaging for another 30 seconds. Using a wet muslin cloth (It comes with one!) I remove the balm from my skin, pat dry and follow with my moisturiser, Simple's Hydrating light moisturiser.


After all that, my skin looks radiant and it feels soft and fresh, and the pores that dotted a few areas appear reduced! 

Wonderful.

I use this on days when I feel I need a pick me up because it does a lot to enhance the appearance of my skin, and the lovely zesty scent reminds me of summer! It's a great product for normal skin to dry/sensitive skin, but even though I have normal to combination skin, it does work very well for me.
The 125ml which I have retails at around £20, which to me is a reasonable price for such a great cleansing balm! They also have a smaller size, 15ml (£4), so if you want to test it out you can go for that first!

Balance Me products are of natural origin and they don't have unnecessary and artificial colours or fragrance (Those are deal breakers when I'm trying out new skin care products! Lol!).

If you watch my YouTube Channel you would've come to know that I'm deeply in love with this brand. Their Rose Otto Lip Salve* has been a saviour these past winter months as well as their Rose Otto Hand cream*!

 No doubt you guys will be one of the first to know when I discover more gems by Balance Me!


*These products were kindly sent to me.
