BELNATUR’S Essential Range BALANCE CREAM taken to the test:
Balance Cream is one of the star products for combination skin and also the ideal cream for my skin type. The unique formula of marine plants, such as Laminaria Saccharina Algae Extract, together with a combinations of vitamins B3 and B5, Mattifying Micro-Sponges and Sun Protection SPF8 helps to balance the skin PH moisturising the drier part of the skin and at the same time reducing shine and impurities in the oilier parts, absorbing sebum and therefore reducing bacterial proliferation. The results are a soothing and smooth skin, shine-free. In fact this is exactly what my skin needs, and, after a week of application, my skin felt really fresh, better balanced and more compact, with open pores less visible, which in other words, translate also in a younger looking skin. The delicate and light texture of the cream left a pleasant mattifying effect and I found it very helpful and great as base for my make-up. I loved also its delicate scent of fresh breeze, perfect to start the day. Definitely a big fun of Belnatur’s range. Best companions to follow up with are: Brossage for cleansing, followed by Herbal Toner twice per day, Nova, to exfoliate once a week, and finally Fitomask, a deep cleansing and purifying mask once every two weeks.
