There are a lot of skincare brands out there, with many more sneaking into my routine every week. A lot of them have similar packaging, similar claims, similar products and similar manufacturers, so it’s always refreshing to come across a brand that has something slightly unique about them. Sisters Rebecca and Clare Hopkins founded the skincare brand Balance Me in 2005 after they left their careers and retrained in the holistic field of skincare. After starting off producing products in their kitchen, within a year they’d been spotted by a leading retailer and were selling in stores throughout the UK. Balance Me is a brand that uses cutting-edge, hi-tech natural formulations and chemistry
to create sophisticated textures, exquisite active aromas,
award-winning results at affordable prices. It’s developed a loyal following (including bloggers and beauty editors,) and has even won numerous awards – so Balance Me is definitely a brand to be reckoned with.
The range includes the fabulous Radiance Face Mask which not only exfoliates skin, but provides it with essential moisture to help hydrate and leave the complexion looking luminous. The Rose Otto Body Balm smells amazing (think a subtle pot of Turkish Delight,) while protecting, moisturising, soothing and leaving a subtle sheen for healthy looking skin. I’m also a huge fan of the Hydrating Shea Butter Salve, which leaves lips soothed and healthy feeling, while providing a subtle gloss finish. All of the Balance Me products have multiple purposes, as well as smelling and feeling fabulous; the packaging is clean and fresh whilst still looking great in your bathroom, as well as having unique application methods that only aid the product performance. Not only that, but the majority of products are made with ingredients of 100% natural origin – so they’re perfect for those who are a little bit conscious of what they’re putting on their skin. It’s definitely worth checking out this growing brand, before it starts taking over the world.
