Balance Me Moisture Rich Face Cream.

Balance Me Moisture Rich Face Cream.
It is no secret that I am a big fan of Balance Me. Their products feature pretty regularly in my Empties posts. Today I thought I would share my thoughts on their Moisture Rich Face Cream.
As the name suggests, the Moisture Rich Face Cream is a thick rich cream. Balance Me suggest it is suitable for normal to dry (and sensitive) skin types, but I would think it is better suited to dryer skins. Balance Me say that it plumps, protects and primes the skin.
The star ingredients of Moisture Rich Face Cream are Shea butter and rosehip, camellia and kukui oils as well as extract of cloudberry. This really does give the moisturiser a very nourishing feel. It does make the consistency quite thick, so I have been applying a spritz of facial toner just to give it a little more slip. Despite this, it doesn't feel heavy or greasy, and it does absorb well.
I definitely agree with Balance Me that it plumps the skin. I also think it does a fantastic job of priming the skin. I find this makes a great base for my makeup. It leaves my skin looking fresh and healthy. It has a subtle rose fragrance which is very much to my liking. I think it is also good value for money and I would happily repurchase this again.
