This is the Balance Me Daily essentials cleanse and smooth face balm. It came free with a magazine a few months ago and it was a while till I got round to trying it. Finally about a week ago I found it amongst my 'need to try' products and took it into the bathroom to carry out my night time routine.
As you can see, the info is very inviting and it sounds like a great natural product to remove your makeup. Note the bit where it says 'balm residue' this is where this product failed for me personally. The residue is impossible to get of your face without a further 5 minutes of scrubbing at your skin, and even then it feels slimy to the touch and your face feel like a grease ball!
The product itself feels oily and lumpy with what feel like balls of wax. The only good thing I can say about this is that it smells nice, I hate touching it never mind rubbing it into my face, and did I think it removed my makeup well? No..
You can see the residue here, this is after washing my hands, it isn't just oily, it feels thick and waxy, I don't think I will be using this again unless I have half an hour spare to spend scrubbing at my face, but that defeats the point of a gentle remover. I don't often do negative reviews, but this just didn't do it for me.
Do you use Balance-Me products?
