I couldn't wait to try the phyto-nutrient day creme as I noticed one of the ingredients was Vinanza Grape – a superfruit extract made from Sauvignon Blanc Grape Seeds, I thought this sounded interesting and was curious to see the effects on my skin.
This is a lush, velvety creme, which contains the exotic oils Myrrh, Jasmine Sambac, Bitter Orange and Vanilla Fruit extract. Also contains evening primrose oil, proven to keep skin looking youthful due to the omega oil properties.
The consistency is just right – not too thick, but creamy enough to know that it's properties are penetrating and doing their job. I always use moisturisers on my decollatege as well as my face, a good test for me as this is where I see aging first.
This is where the Vinanza Grape came into action, keeping the elasticy and firmness in my skin and smoothing fine lines, I'm so glad I've come across this ingredient in organic skin care. Combined with the essential oils (especially Myrrh which prevents skin degeneration), this is a pleasure to apply and use every day to keep wrinkles at bay.
Balance Extra Gentle & Revitalising
Another reason I wanted to try the Balance collection is becuase I love Bergamot, the uplifting scent always seems to lower my stress levels and Bergamot oil is very good for my acne prone skin, evening out and brightening a dull complexion.
The other key ingredient is the amazing Sauvignon Blanc Grape Seeds extract, loaded with anti-oxidants.
It has a creamy texture which doesn't lather up (this a good thing, it means there are no nasty chemicals). It leaves a moist, supple feel to my skin
and cleanses my skin of all dirt.
Balance Refresh & Refine
I'm a big fan of spray mist toner's, the pump bottle makes it so much easier and quicker to apply and leaves a refreshing feel.
Contaning Bitter Orange oil which has an earthy and green scent very similar to Neroli, it smells soft and sweet and is the perfect pick me up, it's also a very good natural astringent which doesn't feel harsh on my skin and reduces swelling.
The other key ingredient is the skin firming Sauvignon Blanc Grape Seeds extract. This is the perfect toner before moisturising.
I used it any time I felt my skin and senses needed a quick lift, a mist of this felt lovely to use on hot days.
