"Beauty that works naturally"
I haven't tried many natural beauty products so when I heard Glamour magazine were giving away some Balance Me products (a UK based brand which I had heard of before but not tried), I was excited to try some of them out. I first bought the Rose Otto lip salve and then more recently also decided to get the pure skin face wash to try too.
L-R: Face wash, lip salve
Pure skin face wash /skin balancing cleanser 98.8% natural for normal to combination skin RRP £11.00
"Enjoy benefits of balancing spruce knot extract, anti-oxidant rich rice bran oil and sense-awakening frankincense, grapefruit and ylang ylang oils. Allow wash to dissolve make up and daily grime to achieve a balanced, clean complexion without stripping away your skin's natural moisture levels'
So far I'm not the biggest fan of this face wash. It didn't give me the clean feeling that I like to have after washing my face and I felt like I wanted to wash it again using my normal facial cleanser. It has a very herbal smell which I didn't really mind in the tube but since using it to wash my face with, have decided it's a smell I don't really like.
Rose Otto intensive lip salve 100% natural RRP £12.00
"Our ultra moisturising intensive lip salve is a daily beauty must to plump, protect and smooth away dry patches to leave lops kiss-ably soft"
This lip salve is one of the smoothest and softest lip products I have used in a while and most importantly for me, I feel like it stays on your lips for a very long time before you notice it's gone and feel like you want to reapply it. The only thing I don't like about it is it's herbal/rose scent; it both smells and tastes like Turkish Delight - which I hate. Up until yesterday I was bearing the scent but then I started to not feel very well, used this lip salve and the taste actually made me feel sick. I also think at £12.00 this is a pretty expensive lip treatment to have in your collection.

Have you tried either of these products? Do you find the scents as off putting as I do?
