Review: Balance Me Super Toning Body Oil


"A super effective daily moisturising body oil to improve skin tone, soften and smooth skin and encourage good circulation thanks to a unique blend of active ingredients found in juniper, bergamot, geranium and lavender."

I already confessed to being very lazy when it comes to moisturising my body. I used to be obsessed with body butters and lotions, but after spending hours massaging my skin to prevent pregnancy stretch marks and getting EXTREME ones anyway.... I gave up. I use body moisturisers once a week now and 2-3 times a week I use oil based body scrubs. It works for me. 

I do make exceptions though and when I am trying out new products, I use them religiously :) haha. I have been using the Balance Me Super Toning Body Oil for nearly two weeks (4-5 times a week) and I can see and feel the benefits of it, especially on my legs. I spend a lot of time on the floor- playing with my baby boy, so my knees get really dry and they need more attention when I moisturise. 

The Balance Me Toning Body Oil is perfect, because it sinks into the skin very quickly and doesn't leave a residue. It smells incredible - with notes of geranium, lavender and bergamot.  I personally love strong natural scents like this, but my husband can't stand them. Do I care? No :)  Most of my skincare products smell similar and he always comments on it.  I use the oil in the morning, after a shower, concentrating on very dry areas as well as applying it sparingly allover my body. It leaves my skin feeling soft, and gives it a healthy glow. I might stick to my moisturising routine, because I love having silky smooth skin :) 

Do you have a body care regime and moisturise every single day?

You can buy the Balance Me Super Toning Body Oil from Balance Me website.

  5. I go through these phases where I'm obsessed with moisturising after every bath/shower, and then times when I'm utterly lazy (shame on me). This looks amazing though, I must say I love using a gorgeous smelling lotion to bed instead of perfume :)

  6. I always want to like balance me products but have been dissapointed with most things I have tried so far, this did sound nice though, perhaps I should give them another try! http://anagoesgreenbeautyorganic.blogspot.co.uk

  7. Confession time: I am sometimes lazy with moisturizing my body, but I do my best to still apply it! I have extremely dry skin and I just can't afford it :)
    Lovely review, sounds like something I should try out.

  8. I might give this a go. I have runs of using body moisturisers/oils. A few weeks ago I was obsessed and moisturised every day but now I'm not using any. I probably should as I have dry, scratchy skin since being pregnant!
