Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash – 125ml (£16.00)
My first review for the ladies at Balance Me, a British brand that many of you will already be familiar with, founded by sisters in 2005.
This face wash is both effortless and a genuine pleasure to use. The tube is big, easy and practical to use. The cleanser has a bright white, silky texture that slides effortlessly over the face. It has a clean, fresh grapefruit mix fragrance thanks to the Frankincense, Grapefruit and Palma Rosa essential oils. Its mild foaming action with tiny bubbles, works well as a facial hair shampoo for us men with beards.
It didn’t inflame or aggravate my broken capillaries or leave me red faced. It rinses off easily with no need for a cloth, which I’ve never been a fan of myself and left my face feeling clean and comfortable. No tight or stripped feeling with this one and suitable for ‘normal to combination skin’
The biggest ingredients and base for this cleanser (after water), is Decyl glucoside and Lauryl glucoside, which are plant-derived mild surfactants, often found used in baby products or in products for use on sensitive skins. They have then used Rice Bran Oil, vegetable derived glycerin and still very high up in the list, Moringa Oil. Other natural plant and oil ingredients found include Spruce Knot extract, Aloe Vera, Petitgrain, Ylang Ylang and Roman Chamomile.
This particular cleanser boasts 98.8% natural origin ingredients and having checked out the ingredients myself, are also fully Del Brown Approved!
