I have somehow managed to get to 30 and a half without having any real skin care routine at all. I have never used moisturiser or any kind of creams on my face – or anywhere else really and use face wipes to remove make up at the end of the day. When Balance Me got in contact to introduce me to their products I thought it would be a great opportunity to start a skincare routine and Balance Me sent me a few of their products to get me started.
What are the Balance Me Face Products?
I have started using the Balance Me Cleanse and Soothe Face Balm every night before bed after using my normal wipes to get rid of the bulk of my make up. It’s amazing how much residue has been left on my face even after using my trusty wipes and my face has felt much cleaner and clearer ever since.
The Cleanse and Soothe Balm has a slightly grainy texture and you don’t need to use much at all, massaging it onto your clean face and then using the included muslin cloth, dampened, to continue massaging the balm onto your skin whilst washing it off. I then dry my face and then use the Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser.
How have I found using the Balance Me Face Products?
I had really oily skin as a teenager and using anything on my face would bring me out in spots and I think I always bound to be hesitant of using new products on my skin but the Balancing Face Moisturiser is in no way greasy or oily and is absorbed into the skin really well. A little goes a long way and the handy pump action bottle makes it easy to apply. Even since starting to use this moisturiser my face has felt so soft and much more hydrated than it usually is. I was worried about putting a product on my skin straight after cleaning my skin and making it so free of additives but the combination of the cleanser and moisturiser work really well on my skin leaving it feeling fresher than it has done in a long time.
I was also sent the Balance Me Rose Otto Face Oil and this isn’t something I have been using every day but on days when my face has had a tougher time – where I have wearing more makeup or where we have been out all day with coastal wind or the sun on my skin.
Rose Otto Face Oil is great if your face needs to be brought back into balance – if you suffer from red patches, dry patches or just uneven tones. It strengthens skin and helps sensitivity as well as minimising the signs of aging – I know that this is a product I will be using more as the months go by!
I now have a skin care routine that fits in with my lifestyle, takes just minutes and makes my skin feel so much better. To be honest, I didn’t think there was anything wrong with my skin before but now I know that there is always room for improvement and am so glad that I have been introduced to Balance Me products.
