The last two months have been extremely busy for our natural British beauty brand. Our HQ has moved and we now have a beautiful loft-style office in the heart of Bankside and we are all very happy in our new home.
You might have spotted our Daily Essential heroes Moisture Rich Face Cream and Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm on the covers of August’s Marie Claire magazine. Our social media channels have been buzzing with new fans that have enjoyed discovering the benefits of natural, results-focused skincare. Here are a few of my favourites:
“@marieclaireuk @balancemebeauty I'm in Italy, Rovereto, using Balance Me products ! Amazing”
“@HelloEmski have you tried the @balancemebeauty moisturiser free with Marie Claire mag this month? It's lovely #bbloggers”
“ Just used the @balancemebeauty cleanse and smooth balm for the first time and my skin feels amazing!”
“@balancemebeauty just cleansed my face with the balm that came with @marieclaireuk. Oh wow, it's amazing, I will be buying a full size one!”
If you are a beauty box fan you must subscribe to Birchbox UK. Our Wonder Eye Cream is currently part of a global partnership with this innovative international beauty sampling brand. In fact our partnership has led to Balance Me’s first US bricks and mortar location in Birchbox’s new concept store, located in the heart of SoHo, New York!
Have you spotted our beautiful newly tubed 200ml Super Toning, Super Moisturising and Rose Otto Body Washes? They have had a resounding ‘thumbs up’ from a host of Beauty Editors including Weekend Telegraph, Observer, Cosmopolitan, Hello and Health & Fitness magazines. Also, look out for our newly formulated Stellar Beauty Balm and Rose Otto Body Balm, perfect for keeping skin hydrated and glossy during this glorious Indian summer. They hit the shelves in August.
Finally Clare and I had a trip down memory lane as we were invited to the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST) annual party as we were shortlisted for their Alumnae of the Year award. It was a very humbling experience and allowed us to revisit our school days along with Alex Bridgwater, our PR Manager, also a GDST old girl. As the mother of two daughters I realise how important it is to encourage their entrepreneurial spirit. I was impressed to learn that the GDST’s latest four principles are: ‘Girls first’, ‘networked’, ‘bold’ and ‘principled’. I can honestly say we have adopted these ourselves as we have grown from a kitchen table to an international beauty brand and I shall ensure I communicate these to my Marie Claire reader mentee, whom I’ll meet next month which I am really looking forward to.
Until next month….
Gentle yet intensely hydrating, Balance Me Moisture Rich Face Cream is ideal for sensitive or easily irritated skin. Arctic Cloudberry is an anti-oxidant rich fruit that protects the skin from environmental damage. Aloe Vera has powerful soothing properties, whilst Rose Absolute and Rose Geranium Oils are anti-inflammatory and beneficial for treating broken capillaries and scarring.
Suitable for all skin types, Balance Me's Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm polishes and illuminates skin. A trio of Shea, Mango and Cocoa butters that are rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins plump and nourish the skin. Oat Powder gently exfoliates, whilst the antioxidant powers of Artic Cloudberry protect and hydrate. Virgin Coconut Oil and May Chang have impressive anti-bacterial properties.
Our award winning Wonder Eye Cream is packed full of ingredients to refresh, awaken and lift even the most sensitive of eyes. Hyaluronic Acid provides the eyes with a shot of moisture and helps to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. A blend of Cucumber oil and Witch Hazel calms, brightens and works to reduce puffiness and inflammation.
Balance Me’s Super Moisturising Body Wash contains a mixture of Patchouli, Lavender, Neroli and Geranium to target and hydrate very dry skin. Yarrow, a healing herb, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, making this wash suitable for those prone to eczema or psoriasis. Shea Butter is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins, which deeply hydrate and protect the skin.
Our delicately fragranced, Rose Otto Body Wash formulated with an exquisite blend of Pure Rose Otto, Palma Rosa and Rose Geranium Essential Oils will soothe and strengthen skin in distress whilst also calming and balancing your mood through its soft Rose aroma. Skin will be left perfectly cleansed and balanced thanks to its sulphate-free formula that doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils.
