balance Me Super Moisturising Body Oil Review

balance Me is a UK company that was founded in 2005 by sisters Rebecca and Claire,  the brand has grown significantly over the past two years and has recently been launched in Debenhams.

balance Me uses hi-tech natural formulations to create their products, which do not contain parabens, sulphates, petroleum, mineral oils, silicones, des, pegs, propylene glycol, artificial fragrances or colours.
I was contacted by balance Me to ask if I wanted to try their products, I told them that I had just had a baby and they recommended trying this product as Super Moisturising Body Oil* was created when Rebecca became pregnant with her first baby to help minimise the risk of the appearance of stretch marks.

It is also recommended for use during weight gain or loss to help minimise the risk of developing scars and for reducing the appearance of existing stretch marks.

The bottle contains 200ml and retails for £24.50 on their website.

A little of the oil goes a long way so this size bottle would last a good while!
The oil has a thin consistency and I found it absorbed quite quickly, although I would recommend waiting a few minutes after application before getting dressed.  The oil does not leave any residue once it is absorbed.  I have been using on on my arms as well as my tummy as they get quite dry.  I do find this really does get rid of the dry patches.
This the list of ingredients.

The oil has a nice subtle smell from the ingredients - the one I can smell most strongly is the rosehip oil.

Have you tried this oil or anything else from the balance Me brand?


  1. I've just started using the toning body wash and oil so am looking forward to seeing the results!

  2. I've yet to use BalanceMe but Mum has had some of their products, so I might have to try. Great review.

    1. Thanks! I have tried quite a few balance Me products and I think I have liked everything I have tried!

  3. Would like to try this. Have been reading Janey Lee Grace's "Imperfectly Natural Woman" and she makes the case for using organic products very compelling.

  4. This sounds like a lovely product. Huge balance Me fan x

  5. It is so nice, highly recommended! I put it on last night after my shower and this morning I have baby soft skin!
