Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all doing well! I have woken up with the intentions to have a super productive day...so we'll have to see how that pans out haha! I have a few posts i need to sort out along with some other exciting goodies i want to try and finally get going. I am out this evening for my friends Birthday / Leaving party, she is turning 21 the beginning of September and then she is leaving to live in France for 6 month with her University course, which is so exciting! Can't wait to get out and have some fun tonight! Looking forward to the company, yummy meal and cocktails!
Balance Me very kindly sent me a few goodies to try along with this 'Super Moisturising Hand Cream' which i really have been enjoying using lately. As the weather has been a little unpredictable as per usual, one minute it's warm and then it's cold i can definitely see that my hands have taken the tole. I have a few sore patches on my hands which could be party environmental causes along with what looks to be like a little Eczema. Myself and hand cream have a little love hate relationship really...i do like using it when i feel like i need it but i really don't like hand creams that make you feel greasy and then you literally cannot touch anything after applying it haha. After using this hand cream though i feel so addicted to making sure my hands are super moisturised just how you would moisturise your body.
Balance Me is a brand i have just recently discovered and have seen tones of positive reviews around the bbloggersphere. Their products are all natural and have no nasty ingredients. The hand cream is 98.8% natural origin and is free from parabens, sulphates, petroleum, mineral oils, silicones, dea, pegs, propylene glycol, artificial fragrances and colours. All of the Balance Me products are lovingly created in the UK. The Balance Me Beauty multi-award winning 'Super Moisturising Hand Cream' has a seriously rich formula which is blended with a unique uplifting blend of renowned ancient skin conditioners, which really help with turning back the clock on hard-working hands and makes the driest hands incredibly smooth to the touch. The first thing you notice when you apply the hand cream is the really unique scent which kind of resembles a really relaxing herbal smell which i think is slightly similar to the 'Elemis Herbal Lavender Repair Mask' which is a scent i really like. As soon as you apply it you instantly feel like you are being pampered and you get whisked away to a relaxing place. I think applying this a night would be a great way to relax and fall asleep.
The unique blend of exceptional moisturisers help skin back from daily wear and tear. It is so effective Balance Me even suggest using it on dry patches all over your body. Along with fatty-acid and vitamin-packed Shea Butter and sweet Almond Oil Balance Me have added two ancient therapeutic skin conditioners; the Egyptians' emblaming agent Benzoin and Yarrow, which legend says Achillies used on his wounded soldiers in the Trojan war - how amazing! Patchouli is a calming essential oil for weathered skin, Carrageenan Gum gives skin a smooth texture and Kukui Nut Oil makes even problem skin super supple.
The packaging is a beautiful eye catching Sunglow Selective Yellow which looks great out on display. It is in a very simple but chic package, i love how there is not too much going on and you are able to see what it is. The added patterned detailing at the bottom really adds a special little touch without it being too over powering haha. My Mum is a huge hand cream obsessive and can never leave the house without one in her handbag...she is now constantly raving about the hand cream and it coming from her really means something as she has used every single hand cream on the market haha.
This super moisturising hand cream does everything you want it to; it absorbs into the skin quickly leaving the hands non-greasy. Even though I personally really like the scent not everyone likes the same smells so you might want to try out a sample or see it in person before you commit and purchase it. There are a wide range of stockists that supply Balance Me - from John Lewis, Harvey Nichols, Look Fantastic and so on. You can see a full list of stockists HERE.
Hope you all liked this Balance Me review, i would love to know what you think about it and what your go to hand cream is! Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you and i make sure to read every single comment...they really make my day!

Lots Of Love
