Balance Me This Christmas

When it comes to value for money beauty products, few brands do it better than Balance Me. Their products may not be the cheapest but the quality of their natural formulations pound for pound is impressive.

Take their Rose Otto Body Oil for example - one of my Balance Me favourites. It’s rich and golden, oozes quality and feels luxurious on the skin. It costs £24.50 for 200ml - that’s VFM! It takes tens of thousands of rose blossoms to yield just one ounce of rose essential oil.

VFM becomes particularly poignant at Christmas. We’re buying gifts and lots of them, and we’re buying for loved ones, so even if money is tight we don’t want to be getting any old rubbish.  Balance Me has some cracking and affordable gifts in its Christmas collection this year. Here are a few highlights:

Balance Me Body Beautiful and Balance Me Luscious Lips - £6 Each

I’m not entirely sure these sparkly boxes are meant to double up as tree decorations but you could easily pop a branch through the star at the top and hang them from your spruce. With their sparkly firework motif (a packaging theme chosen to mark the brand’s 10 year anniversary) they’d look rather fetching, I feel.
Body Beautiful contains a 30ml tube of the brand’s Rose Otto Body Cream, a luxurious treat formulated with artic cloudberry, aloe, rosehip and camellia oils. It leaves skin soft, hydrated and smelling of roses.
With a seasonal pop of red and shimmery sparkle, the Shine On Tinted Lip Salve is the perfect preparation for a sneaky pecker under the mistletoe. It’s plumping (thanks to organic shea, mango and cocoa butters), and hydrating (coconut oils) and leaves lips utterly kissable. 

The Ultimate Wash and Lotion Duo - £20 for 2 x 300ml 

A unisex body lotion and wash duo loaded with moisturising citrus essential oils, shea butter, organic aloe and sweet almond oil. Its ‘wake-me-up’ zesty fragrance makes it perfect for that morning wash – just the job for the men and women in your life who find it difficult to get going first thing.

  6. Dear Tracey, you wouldn't believe what happened. I followed you on Bloglovin and relied on them to send me the newest posts. I even thought you were not posting often anymore.. What happened was that they deleted my "following" and I didn't get any feed anymore. So Bloglovin is not so reliable. Finally, I realized there was something wrong and I checked and now I am following you again :) Hope that this time they don't erase that :) As for Balance Me, I am eager to try that brand! I would like to have the hand and body wash, because I seldom (if most, twice a year) use body lotions, but body wash everyday!
