As the days become longer and sunnier, the beauty trend we’ve fallen for from the Spring/Summer 14 catwalks is the flawless skin and healthy glowing look, seen at shows such as Valentino, Dolce and Gabbana and Giles. What better way to achieve this naturally beautiful look for Spring than with natural skincare?
Our philosophy is ‘beauty that works naturally’ which uses the latest research, hi-tech natural ingredients and chemistry to create beautiful products that bring skin back into balance. Claire Ray, top UK make-up artist, with a portfolio of A-list clients including Sienna Miller and Mischa Barton, explains that the season’s brave ‘no makeup’ make-up look, which has left us all longing to cast aside our make-up bags, is all about clever skincare.
Clare Ray’s six-step guide to complexion perfection:
- “Use the Balance Me pure skin face wash, to remove any traces of make-up
- Apply Balance Me radiance face mask to give skin an instant glow – it only needs five minutes to work its magic.
- Before applying the Balance Me radiance face oil use a small facial brush to remove all dry skin. This helps the oil absorb into the skin and rehydrate.
- Pat the Balance Me stellar face balm over cheekbones as a highlighter
- Use the Balance Me tinted lip salve in rose blush to condition and moisturise the lips, I like to pat some of the balm on to fleshy part of the cheeks to give it a healthy glow.
- Curl eyelashes and apply two coats of mascara.”

Top tips for those who can’t bear to...
If the thought of going bare faced leaves you in a nervous sweat, simply strip back your make-up bag staples. Our co-founder Rebecca Hopkins believes in the mantra that ‘less is more’ and swears by our BB natural perfection cream SPF25, which will smooth away imperfections, address uneven skin tone and provide a flawless finish. Its natural mineral tint will leave skin illuminated, plump and radiant, without the need for heavy coverage.
Try to take time to cleanse both morning and night. By keeping our cleansers in the shower we find it much easier to find the time. This two-step approach will ensure that make-up and dirt are both removed to reveal brighter looking skin, doubly as fast.
Balance Me promises to provide you with everything your skin might need and nothing it doesn’t. We are very honest about what does and doesn’t appear in our naturally anti-ageing skincare range and our ‘Balance Me Promise’ clearly highlights our brand principles. Recreating this beautiful look will reduce the amount of make-up you apply daily, allowing your skin to breathe and enjoy the daily dose of our naturally active, essential-oil inspired skincare.
