It is incredible quality and is large enough to fit all your poolside / beach essentials.

BalanceMe also kindly sent me a few of their Summer essentials to try out and I was very excited to see one of my favourite products amongst them, that being their:-

Natural Protection Moisturiser SPF25

This is a very lightweight daily moisturiser with SPF25, it gives you broad spectrum protection using Titanium Dioxide (this filter physically reflects the sun’s rays) based natural mineral filter to shield skin from UVA & UVB rays. As well as being a very effective SPF it is also really good moisturiser and contains Hyluronic Acid to help keep skin hydrated, smooth and plump as well as Kukui Seed Oil which contains vitamins A, C, and E, which are antioxidants known to protect the skin and prevent free-radical damage. So you skin is in really good hands. I’m so pleased to have a new tube ready to use and it is going to stay in my beach basket so I never forget it!

BalanceMe Pure Skin Face Wash

I have never tried this cleanser but it is sulphate free and formulated for sensitive skin so that means it will be a nice gentle cleanser for washing off my SPF after long days at the beach. Its key ingredients include, Spruce Knot which is a purifying anti oxidant, rich in Vitamin E and renowned for its balancing skin regulating properties. Rice Brand Oil this botanical oil helps to balance the skins natural protective barrier and Moringa Oil is great at rejuvenating your complexion and soothing redness and inflammation. So a really good cleanser to use after being outside all day, it will nourish, sooth and give your skin a natural radiance.

Holiday Skincare from BalanceMe

BalanceMe Super Moisturising Body Oil and Body Wash

I have tried the Rose Otto versions of these and they were so luxurious. This Super Moisturising duo have the most beautiful scent, I can pick out the patchouli which is one of my absolute favourite notes. Both of these products are gentle and perfect for both dry and normal skin. I use the body wash as hand wash because it doesn’t strip my hands and the scent lingers for such a long time, the fact that it has a pump dispenser also makes it very practical as a handwash.

    • Dry skin: Softening Benzoin, calming Yarrow and Patchouli, plus hydrating Shea Butter work together to gently soften and repair flaky, dry skin and dry patches
    • Normal skin: Sulphate-free formula doesn’t strip skin of its natural oils and is so hydrating that skin will not need moisturising after showering!

The body oil is such a pampering product and lovely for keeping your skin looking its best and feeling so soft. If you have dry skin it is going to help keep that dry skin at bay

  • Healing Neroli, rejuvenating Rosehip and Jojoba this oil will help to maintain hydration levels and reduce outbreaks of dry, flaky skin that can be prone to irritation
  • Packed full of essential fatty acids, anti-oxidants and vitamins, this body oil is perfect for increasing skins elasticity and the high percentage of Coconut Oil used in this hi-tech formulation allows this body oil to naturally tackle, prevent and reduce stretch marks.

The beautiful limited edition Balance Baskets are all handmade and available now for £30. Please note that the products do not come with the basket. The basket is available online at for a limited time only.

Tropic Good Skin Day Serum

Tropic Skincare Good Skin Serum

Tropic Skincare Good Skin Serum

Tropic Good Skin Day Serum*

Tropic Skincare seems to be one of the best kept secrets in the beauty world, they’re a cruelty-free all natural, British beauty brand that produce quality, effective products. I have tried a few of their skincare releases, and they always exceed expectations. I find myself recommending them to friends and family of all ages, it is fuss free skincare that just works.

I’ve been trying out their Good Skin Day Serum for a couple of weeks now and using it mostly as part of my morning routine (although I think it is meant to be an overnight serum). It mainly fits in with my am routine because it has a really uplifting sweet scent, and it leaves my skin feeling velvety soft, smooth and nourished. I find the rest of my skincare works well on top and also my makeup looks even and doesn’t sink in to my fine lines throughout the day.

This is a resurfacing serum so it is fantastic for keeping your skin looking refreshed, radiant and beautifully healthy. I always get a patch of bumpy, textured skin on my chin and this works wonders at helping to smooth that out. This product has such an incredible list of skin loving ingredients including,

  • Lime Pearl Extract Glycolic acids and Willow Bark BHA – exfoliate for a softer, smoother skin surface
  • Mango Extract – helps protect against free radicals
  • Coconut Water – deeply hydrates skin
  • Papaya Enzymes and AHA Fruit Complexes – refine and tighten pores
  • Concentrated Hyaluronic Acid – delivers a boost of skin hydration

Tropic Good Skin Day Serum

This blend of ingredients will not only protect your skin, but hydrate it and keep it looking fresh and well rested. It is quite the powerhouse, and I’ve been loving using it, it feels refreshing on the skin and although it is a resurfacing, exfoliating serum it isn’t harsh or uncomfortable.

As with any resurfacing / acid products, make sure you use an SPF as your skin is more sensitive to UV rays!

I have to mention just one more time about the scent of this, it is so, so good. If you like sweet, fruity scents then you will love this. It reminds me that warmer weather is just around the corner.

Tropic Skincare is cruelty-free, vegan and 100% naturally derived.

skinChemists Advanced Caviar Skincare

Luxury Skincare from Skin Chemists

Skin Chemists Caviar Skincare

I wanted to give you the heads up about a fantastic offer from skinChemists, who are known for their 100% organic and cruelty free luxury skincare. I’ve been testing out three products from their Advanced Caviar range and I have to say I’m impressed so far. Caviar has become quite a popular ingredient in skincare over the past couple of years and skinChemists have been working with leading pharmacists, chemists, scientists and beauticians worldwide, to develop their caviar range.

So why is Caviar becoming such a sort after ingredient? This marine-based ingredient is very rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are two nutrients that promote luminous, balanced skin and its also known to be intensely moisturising and has anti inflamatory benefits. So your skin is in good hands.

skinChemists Advanced Caviar Facial Serum*

I think serum is my favourite product to use as I love the added hydration they give and its a step I never miss in my routine. This one from skinChemists is extremely hydrating, soothing and protecting.

The main active ingredients in the formulation are:-

  1. Caviar Extract, a highly nutritious marine complex, aims to protect the skin against harmful rays and environmental stresses.
  2. Seaweed Extract, thought to have anti-oxidising properties, aims to deeply hydrate the skin.
  3. Aloe Vera aims to stimulate the skin’s healing process, whilst working to soothe and regenerate the skin.

It has a lovely fluid formula which sinks in quickly and helps boost hydration which is exactly what my skin needs right now, these cold days dry out my skin and make my fine lines look more prominent.

Luxury Skincare from Skin Chemists

skinChemists Advanced Caviar Day Cream*

The day / night creams come packaged in the most beautiful mirrored sphere, it looks and feels futuristic and luxurious. The cream itself is pretty cool too, much like the serum it provides long lasting hydration and nourishment whilst protecting skin from harmful environmental aggressors.

The main active ingredients in the formulation are

  1. Caviar Extract, a highly nutritious marine complex, aims to protect the skin against harmful rays and environmental stresses.
  2. Alpine Rose Stem Cells aim to improve the skin’s barrier function to reduce loss of essential moisture and nutrients.
  3. Powdered Pearl aims to smooth and regenerate the skin, evening the skin tone and improving skin health.

Although this is a rich formula the cream doesn’t feel heavy on the skin or go greasy throughout the day. It gives the skin an instant smooth appearance and when I use this cream I love how well my makeup applies and also wears throughout the day.

Advanced Caviar Night Cream*

We all want to wake up to skin that looks well rested, radiant and youthful and although miracles can’t be achieved this night cream has helped my skin to look brighter, more refreshed and certainly less dry. The night cream is formulated to hydrate, repair and revive your skin whilst you sleep, which sounds good to me!

The main active ingredients in the formulation are

1. Caviar Extract, a highly nutritious marine complex, aims to repair and revive the skin after its daily exposure to environmental stresses.
2. Protease aims to break down dead skin cells and balance natural pH levels.
3. Shea Butter is rich in Vitamins A and E, it aims to deeply hydrate and improve skin health.

All three products I have tried from this range are great for protecting your skin from the environmental aggressors of everyday life like pollution and sun damage. They also help to keep the skin nourished and hydrated so your skin looks plump, radiant and fine lines are reduced. I have loved all three products but especially the night cream, it was so nice to apply each night and I really felt I saw a difference in my skin by morning, it was a lot more healthy.

Let me know if you have tried anything from this brand or if you’re planning on making use of the incredible 70% saving skinChemists currently have on this Advanced Caviar range. Why not start the New Year with a new skincare regime!
