Moisturising is a key part of my skincare routine, morning and night therefore when I find something I really like I tend not to look to anything else for a while.
Up until about two months ago I was using the Balance Me Daily Essentials Moisture Rich Face Cream* as my morning moisturiser. This is aimed at normal to dry or sensitive skin which even though my skin is not dry I would say it can be quite sensitive therefore I found this to be rather a good option for me at the time.
I found this to be a really nourishing day time moisturiser, particularly throughout the winter months when I found my skin needing that extra boost of hydration. This product left my skin feeling really soft and moisturised, whereby I also found it to be quite a nice base for makeup to be applied to after it had absorbed into my skin. It is quite a thick product I find which doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy in the slightest, however I have for the moment stopped using this as my skin hasn’t required the nourishment that this provides due to the warmer weather making my skin oilier. I know as soon as the cold weather sets back in, which is never far away in the UK that I’ll be picking this up again.
I really do like the smell of this as it is quite floral yet with hints of citrus at the same time; it’s really quite refreshing. My only gripe with this is the fact that the product can often dry up in the dispenser resulting in hard moisturiser which is never any good. I’ve noticed that this product is not alone in this issue as my REN moisturiser also does the same, therefore, even though I think the packaging as it is currently is really nice I do overall think a tube would be more practical to help prevent build up of dry product.
Aside from this minor issue I really do like this product. At £24 it’s not that cheap however for the price you are getting a product that is free from parabens, sulphates, mineral oils, silicone’s, artificial fragrances as well as no animal testing; that for me in itself makes me keen to try a product.
