Balance Me Radiance Face Oil



Balance Me Radiance Face Oil* - £15

My evening skincare routine wouldn't be complete without a treatment of some kind. Facial oils are one of my favourite things to use because they just seem to do it all. Whether you're suffering from oily, dry, dull or congested skin there are massive benefits to be had from adding an oil to your regime. When it comes to choosing an oil I always think it's best to go for something as natural as possible. Lately I've been really loving Balance Me's Radiance Face Oil. This is a 100% naturally active oil which is designed to feed your skin with a rich blend of nourishing ingredients. It is suitable for all skin types & would be perfect for anyone in need of a boost. It works especially well for those with dehydration, redness or sensitivity.

To create their Radiance Face Oil, Balance Me have blended together eight different base oils namely sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, kukui nut oil, jojoba oil, rosehip oil, buriti oil, moringa seed oil & camellia oil. Together with ingredients such as Roman chamomile, yarrow & benzoin this oil packs a serious punch when it comes to softening & brightening your skin. I've been using it several times a week for the past couple of months & I've noticed a huge difference in the appearance of my skin. Every time I use this I wake up with perfectly hydrated, glowing & radiant healthy looking skin. I'm prone to quite a bit of redness around my nose & cheeks but this has definitely helped to reduce any red patches making my skin tone look brighter & more even overall. It really lives up to it's radiance boosting claims. There's nothing better than skincare products that do exactly what they're meant to do.

Radiance Face Oil is available in two different formats. You can buy a traditional 30ml bottle with a pipette dispenser or this handy little 10ml rollerball. The 30ml bottle is better value but the rollerball tube is more efficient when it comes to facial massage. I apply the product by starting from the centre of my face, moving outwards in circular motions until I've covered most areas. It feels so relaxing! What I really like about the rollerball format is that by rolling it over your entire face, it seems to dispense the perfect amount of oil. I then go over my face with my hands to massage it in further before applying my night cream. The soothing herbal scent makes it such a pleasure to use. I have combination skin and it really helps to balance out the drier & oilier areas. It sinks in quickly to give an instant hydration boost without feeling greasy. Come morning not only does my skin look a million times better but it feels much softer & smoother too.

If you're still not convinced that putting oil all over your face is a good thing you can simply use this oil as a spot treatment by massaging the rollerball directly over a blemish. It sounds odd but it's actually super effective. It normally makes angry spots disperse under my skin so I don't have to bother with extractions, reducing any subsequent scarring. It also helps to diminish the appearance of scars leftover from past blemishes. Most of my current skincare routine is based around getting rid of blemishes & scarring so this is a fantastic addition to the lineup. This oil is a dream for anyone with dull or dehydrated skin. It's everything you could ever want from an overnight treatment. Have you tried anything from Balance Me?

  3. I'm just getting used to the oil thing and I've been using coconut oil a lot recently. Maybe this oil is the next step!

  4. I've been putting off getting this for ages as I knew I'd love it and it's a little more expensive than most oils I use, but it sounds so gorgeous and perfect for my skintype. I think I'll have to get the rollerball to try it out!
