Elemental Herbology Perfect Balance Moisturiser – £40
I was drawn to Elemental Herbology’s Perfect Balance moisturiser as I adore their Bio-Cellular cleanser – in fact I’ve just used this all up and I’m planning on repurchasing! So after trying a few of their products and loving every one of them, I knew it was time to invest in their moisturiser. This moisturiser aims to balance oily and combination skin types, although I don’t have particularly oily skin I do like a moisturiser that leaves my skin feeling hydrated and not greasy and tacky. I love this as it’s so lightweight and quick to absorb in and by the time I’ve selected my primer for the day, my face is dry and I don’t have that sticky feeling that leaves my makeup sliding off halfway through the day.
You’re meant to press this in to skin rather than massaging but I like the way massaging makes my skin glow so I still quickly rub it in. I think because this is oil-free, you don’t get the moisturiser balling up and falling off like some do (don’t tell me I’m the only one this happens to?!). On top of that, the formula has some great anti-oxidising properties that means your pores are left purified, too. This alone was a selling point for me.
Overall, I think I’ve found myself a pretty darn good moisturiser. I am aware that I’m pretty fussy when it comes to these things but I find it so hard to find something that regulates oil, doesn’t leave a tacky feeling on your skin or ball up when you apply it.
