Balance Me is definitely becoming one of the most talked about brands on my blog: June BeautecoBox (Love Me Beauty), Starting Off: Skincare, Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream and for a Collage. I just love that all their products are natural without a crazy amount of perfume. It’s all about the natural smell of plants. 😉
“A gentle yet effective non-drying sulphate and petroleum free face wash to cleanse skin of make-up and daily grime. Formulated with anti-oxidant rich moringa and rice bran oils to brighten and polish the skin and leave it smooth and gently cleansed. Ideally suited for normal to combination skins.”
(Smell): the smell is very distinct compared to some of the other natural products I’ve tried. It’s very soothing but at the same time it’s got this sharp citrus awakening smell of frankincense (I think), because it did smell a little bit like the Ren Skincare products I reviewed a while ago. On the fragrance wheel, it falls under aromatics with a bit of citrus on the left and a bit of dry woods on the right.
(Texture): the texture is rather light and gentle once applied on a damp face. As you can see from the image above, the texture is like a creamy gel, haha (apologies for the ugly hand, it was really dry that week!!!). I’ve tried massaging it into my skin without wetting it first and trust me, it doesn’t work! I ended up with lots of soapy lumps on my face. Well, you get my point. I also tried it with my Clarisonic and I don’t think that they are compatible.
(Result): I’m really impressed by how long this small bottle lasted. I’ve left it on the side so I can review it before it ends up in my empties pile. So as expected, it’s one of the most gentle cleansers I’ve tried and it didn’t sting my eyes at all! Well, I do slap on a lot of skincare products my face so it’s difficult to tell the exact benefits it’s done to my skin. However, I do find that it helps to remove my makeup residue very well and it always leaves my face well moisturised. Yes, it even removes Benefit They’re Real mascara!
I am definitely recommending this to those with sensitive skin wanting a natural all in one moisturising face wash and makeup remover.
