Balance Me Set.

A few weeks ago, Balance Me had a promotion in one of the Sunday newspapers. They were giving away a little try me set, with the cost being the £5.95 postage. The set contains 3 generous travel sized products, making this a very affordable way of exploring the brand.

The Moisture Rich Face Cream is aimed at normal to dry skins, which suits my needs perfectly. It is lightly fragrance with Rose, which again is very much to my liking. I am very pleased with this moisturiser. It isn't too heavy, providing just the right amount of moisture. I think this is my favourite product from the set.

INGREDIENTS: Aqua, Butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter***, Rosa canina (rosehip) fruit oil, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil , Glycerin, Glyceryl stearate, Polyglyceryl-3 dicitrate/stearate, Cetearyl alcohol, Cetyl ricinoleate, Camellia oleifera (camellia) oil, Aleurites moluccana (kukui) nut oil, Rubus chamaemorus (cloudberry) seed extract, Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf extract***, Rosa centifolia (rose absolute)*, Pelargonium roseum asperum (rose geranium)*, Citrus limonum (lemon)*, Styrax benzoin (benzoin), Chondrus crispus (carrageenan) seaweed gum, Sodium stearoyl lactylate, Benzyl alcohol, Dehydroacetic acid, Citric acid, Potassium sorbate, Citronellol**, Geraniol**, Linalool**, Citral**, Limonene**, Eugenol**, Farnesol** *natural pure essential oil **naturally occurring in essential oils ***certified organic ingredient

Radiance Face Oil (10mls)
For some reason I have never gotten around to trying this facial oil. I really like that this sample comes in a roller ball. It makes it an absolute breeze to apply. The oil itself is really very good, but I personally am a bit put off by the fragrance. If you are a fan of chamomile you will like this, but I unfortunately am not. Having said that, the smell fades soon after application, so it hasn't stopped me enjoying the benefits of the oil. I am curious to see how their Rose Otto facial oil compares.

INGREDIENTS: Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, Vitis vinifera (grape seed) oil, Aleuhrites moluccana (kukui) nut oil, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil, Rosa canina (rosehip) fruit oil, Mauritia flexuosa (buriti) oil, Moringa oleifera (moringa) seed oil, Camellia oleifera (camellia) oil, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Anthemis nobilis (Roman chamomile)*, Styrax benzoin (benzoin), Achillea millefolium (yarrow)*, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) extract, Limonene**, Linalool**, Geraniol**, Citronellol**

Super Moisturising Hand Cream (30mls) contains shea butter, beeswax and lanolin, making it a thick and very nourishing hand cream. Only a small amount is needed to make the hands feel pampered. Despite it's richness, I find that this hand cream absorbs well, without any greasy residue. This is great for dry skin, leaving it soft and soothed. The combination of Lavender, patchouli, geranium, bergamot, yarrow and benzoin, give it an exotic fragrance which is lovely. I am very impressed with this hand cream.

  1. I really love Balance Me products, always such good quality and lovely to use :) x

  2. Snap! I got this too! :) I haven't tried the products yet, though I have used the oil before and I love it - reminds me a lot of Liz Earle's Superskin Concentrate. I'm digging deeper in to the Balance Me catalogue. Their toning body oil is really lovely and the range is all priced keenly. I could just kick myself for not buying the You Beauty 'Balance Me' special box that was around some months back. The contents were worth over £100 and I think, from memory, the set was less than £30! Tracey x

  3. I've never heard of this brand, but I really do like facial oils.
