I had the pleasure of being sent some fabulous Balance Me products to try recently. As a makeup artist I get sent a lot of products, which is definitely a perk, but I will always be truthful about what I like and what I feel works best for my clients.
I can tell you that I love, love, LOVE this range! My favourite product by far is the Radiance Face Oil. I know a lot of people are a bit wary of oils, especially if they have oily skin, but don't be scared. This oil is 100% natural and is actually extremely beneficial to congested skin. It's packed with skin boosting and smoothing ingredients, and has the most gorgeous texture. As soon as this oil is applied, the skin is instantly glowing. It really does feel like your skin is being given a big drink of water, and getting all the hydration it's potentially lacking.
As a makeup artist I'm often looking for products that give more of an instant fix. At a photo shoot, fashion show, or performance, I need my model or client to look good then and there, I don't have time to waste, and that's one of the things I love about this range. Models and celebrities can often struggle with keeping their skin in good condition as their schedules are so
hectic, so with the time I have to work with them I need to choose the products that are going to make the most impact.
I recently worked with Rita Ora at one of her festival performances, and chose Balance Me as the perfect range to keep Rita's skin supple and hydrated in the Summer sun. After I'd cleansed her skin I warmed up a few drops of the Radiance Face Oil in my hands and applied this all over, making sure I really worked it into her skin to boost cell renewal and enhance circulation. I then massaged in Balance Me Moisture-Rich Face Cream to give her skin a gorgeous, fresh glow and keep it looking dewy and healthy. I topped off her skincare with Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream. A beautiful skin brightening cream that helps to smooth away dark shadows and hydrate the eye area. This gave a perfect base to apply the rest of her makeup. Skincare is an essential part of how your makeup is going to look, and I truly believe if your skin looks good then the rest of it will fall into place.
I'm excited to continue using this range, not only on my clients, but also on myself. It takes a lot to impress me these days as I try out so many lotions and potions, but Balance Me has definitely won my product loving heart!
