2015 marks our tenth year of Balance Me beauty! This milestone has made us reflect on our past glories: our coveted Cosmetic Executive Women award for ‘Best British Brand 2013’; our InStyle Best Beauty Buy 2015 for our brand new Super Toning Body Polish; our wealth of amazing editorial endorsements from across the globe; and our growing fan base of home grown customers who are buying across our skin and body care lines and converting their friends to our results-led natural, British beauty brand too.
How did it all begin for Balance Me, ten years ago?
British sisters Rebecca and Clare Hopkins founded Balance Me in 2005 after they left their respective corporate business careers behind and retrained in the holistic field in their quest for a better work-life balance. They were making products in their kitchen when Topshop approached them to purchase 200 Skin Brightening Exfoliating Body Polishes for their VIPs (for avid fans, don’t worry, this best-selling polish is currently being reformulated so that it will re-join our body range in later 2015 to be even bigger and better than before)! This led to a ‘pop up shop’ in their London store on Oxford Street where they were spotted by a leading high street retailer as well as British Vogue.
Within a year Sian Jones had joined, bringing her wealth of retail and aromatherapy expertise to the brand. Together the three girls have been credited with helping to redefine what natural beauty stands for by creating products that truly deliver on results and offer cutting-edge, science-led formulations without compromising on their green credentials.
Over the past ten years Balance Me has grown and grown, it is now available in hundreds of leaving UK high street retailers and independent stockists, has won over 40 industry awards and is still privately owned by the girls who work together with high profile facialists, make-up artists, customers and team members to create natural products that you want to put on your skin, such as our 100% natural body oils, face oils and balms that contain everything your skin needs and nothing it doesn't.
What is there to look forward to in 2015?
It is our mission in 2015 to touch the lives of 10,000 women with our multi-award winning line up of skincare heroines. Watch this space for details on how you can get involved, but very soon we will ask our customers to nominate women they wish us to share our skincare secrets with; beauty industry friends to nominate friends or family who have touched their lives and deserve a skincare treat as an uplifting thank you; and we’ll continue to work with newspaper, magazine and beauty box partners to introduce Balance Me to their readers and introduce two new ranges of results-giving and stress-reducing skincare to keep skin plump, radiant, healthy and balanced!
And finally, we have some very exciting product launches to look forward to, designed to help you to discover your most beautiful skin, and relaxed mind yet….
