My Favorite Beauty Products - Balance Me rose otto body balm

Published by at 04:41

The Product:
A solid, intensely moisturising body balm that melts in the palm of your hand and is applied like an oil. 

What they say:
"A richly hydrating rose otto body butter which literally melts into the skin. Perfect to help hydrate extremely dry skin, to shield it from pollution and to leave it silky soft and lightly shimmering." - balanceme.co.uk

Key Ingredients:
Rose otto oil, jojoba oil and sweet almond oils. 

What I say:
        Pros:  I inherited my mothers dry skin, no matter how much water I ingest I still battle with scaly skin.  (Not sexy)  This is the most effective moisturiser I have discovered and it's full of all those good ingredients I don't mind soaking into my skin daily and very little of the toxins I try to avoid.  (very sexy)  

        Cons: It does leave your skin a little oily which isn't always ideal for clothing. My advice is to use a small amount and allow a few minutes for it to absorb into your skin before getting dressed or wearing light colored leather shoes. ( I speak from personal experience, my light tan sandals weren't damaged just discolored for half a day.  I don't think anyone noticed but me. I'm a little OCD. ; ))

Tip: If you have longer dry hair wipe the excess off your hands into the ends of your hair. 

In conclusion Balance Me's Rose Otto Body Balm is totally worth the £20 price tag. If you're lucky you will find it on sale like I did today! I bought three. That's me moisturised for the rest of the year....well maybe. 

Available at Waitrose, Ocado and Balance Me in the UK.
