I've not used the Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm for a while, but I've been using it recently and discovered why I used to love it. I really do think my skin benefits from a slight scrub, but being a balm it isn't too abrasive so doesn't damage my skin at all. It removes make-up really well and leaves my skin looking fresh and bright. I only use a light cleanser for the mornings, and the Antipodes Hallelujah Lime and Patchouli Cleanser is perfect for me. It's a really light cream, and having avocado oil in it makes my skin really soft and clear.
I love using toners but the laziness inside me means I occasionally skip the step and head straight for a serum. But I do know the difference they do make to my skin, so I'm using a couple every day now. I start off spraying the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist* all over my face which feels really refreshing, as well as helping to moisturise the skin. After that I use one of the pre-soaked pads in the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads which help to clear any scarring I have from previous blemishes. It's quite a gentle exfoliation so would be best for people who don't have too much of a problem to start with, or are easily irritated by the more hardcore of exfoliators.
After toning I pop on the Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus* which is a light moisturiser which I think is perfect for my oily skin as it isn't too heavy but still hydrates really well. I only use this in the mornings, in the evenings I use the Antipodes Divine Facial Oil. Just a couple drops of this in my hands, I massage this into my skin and leave to work it's magic overnight. I know oils are a bit of a touchy subject and don't work for everyone, but for me, my skin looks clearer, redness is reduced, and even blemishes disappear after a couple of days.
