Balance Me Radiance Face Oil

I used to be a little dubious when it came to facial oils - although my skin isn't overly oily, the thought of slathering oil directly onto my face sounded like the perfect recipe for greasiness and breakouts. So, while I'd heard great things, it was somewhat tentatively that I first put Balance Me's Radiance Face Oil to the test... I've been using this oil on and off for over a year now and needless to say, I was completely wrong - this stuff is simply wonderful.

Containing a cocktail of nourishing and natural ingredients such as Amazonian buriti nut, moringa and camellia oils, Balance Me claim that this oil boosts and smooths the skin, while adding a healthy dose of radiance. I like to use this on a night a couple of times a week, before moisturiser and after serum, focusing on the drier areas of my face such as around my nose and then rubbing any residue over the rest of my skin. By morning it has completely sunk in leaving absolutely no greasiness - just smoother, nourished, soft skin. I really love this oil and while I've strayed a couple of times and tried other brands, this is one that I keep coming back to as it simply does the job perfectly.

I have the handy 10ml rollerball version of the oil, which retails for £15, but also available is a 30ml bottle for £30. You only need a really tiny amount for the entire face so you while it may initially seem a little on the pricy side, it lasts forever. It's definitely one that I will continue to repurchase as it has become a part of my skincare routine that I can't imagine being without.

  1. I used to have super oily skin and now it is much more normal from using facial oils! I've tried a few but this one has been on my list for ages!

  4. Ooh that sounds amazing! I've only tried the Josie Maran Argan Oil...and I surprisingly loved it too!
    That's so cute how you have that rollerball version. That must be so tiny and come in handy.

  10. I really want to try this. I'm always a bit apprehensive about oils too as a lot of them are just far too greasy.

  12. The ingredients sound absolutely lovely and the rollerball is so convenient and relatively economical if you don't want to buy a whole bottle. I love face oils and I feel they have contributed to helping my skin become less oily and more balanced and nourished.
