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.

  1. These look amazing, I love the look of the packaging:) x

  2. I'm SOO lazy moisturizing my body too! It's too cold to sit around rubbing products in at the moment!

  3. I've heard such good things about all of the balance me range, I really want to try some :) x

  4. This seems like a lovely product! I haven't used body oils before :) xx

  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!

  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!
