The past few months have really taught me, more than ever about how we should try to balance our life, especially while we try to keep ourselves positive in these tough times. Skincare is a part of my self care routine because the condition of my skin is a good indicator of what is happening to my body at a deeper level. Just before the lockdown, I had the chance to try out Balance Me and I thought about sharing my experience with you. Based on my skin type and skin problems, I was advised the following products:
CLEANSE AND SMOOTH FACE BALM
This is an antioxidant rich hot cloth cleanser with omega rich arctic cloudberry, rosehip oil, and a trio of natural butters, restores radiance while finest oat powder gently clears and brightens. This cleanser worked really well on my skin because I have sensitive skin. I found my skin glowing instantly after wiping my face with the wet cloth. The smell is very subtle and it removes all traces of makeup and daily grime.
Gently massage onto dry skin before applying warm water to emulsify the balm into a cleansing milk. Massage over face. Remove with a warm, damp cloth. Use morning and evening.
