Hot on the heels of its tinted eye cream/primer, Balance Me has launched a second skin prepping and complexion boosting formula.
Instant Lift Pore Minimiser is a primer-come-line-smoother, made with a blend of botanical oils (rosehip, frankincense and bergamot) that’ll be familiar to those who have grown to love Balance Me’s natural formulations (yes, I’m one).
You pat a little directly onto areas of concern (i.e. enlarged pores and fine lines) after moisturiser and before makeup. For ease of application, though, I prefer to dab and blend all over my face and use it as my main primer - I have enlarged pores on my forehead, chin and nose, and some fine lines around my eyes, so it’s fair to say that covers quite a part of my face!
Other key ingredients and what they are said to do:
Acacia gum – refines and lifts skin
Acmella oleracea – relaxes muscle contractions
Hyaluronic acid – plumps and hydrates
The one thing I’m not getting here, though, is lift. I’ve yet to find any cream that delivers noticeable lift - I just don’t think it’s possible from a topical, though perhaps one day I will find myself eating those words (bring it on!).
All-in-all, this latest Balance Me product is another winner – I just emit a tiny wince at the ‘lift’ bit.
Balance Me Instant Lift Pore Minimiser costs £22 for 15ml. You can buy it here. My review of
