I recieved a Balance Me Radiance face mask from my sisterI recieved a Radiance Face Mask free with a magazine, she passed it on as she already had a tube of it and did not like the scent. I on the other the aroma, but I still would not buy this myself..
Balance Me use the tagline "beauty that works naturally". They make paraben and mineral oil free products with a high percentage of natural ingredients. The Radiance fsce mask is described as 98% natural and it's free of sulphates, petroleum, silicones, and artificial colour and fragrances. The mask is clay based and suitable for all skin types. It is intended to cleanse, polish, hydrate, brighten and exfoliate skin, the last benefit coming from walnut shell pieces.
You will pay 8GBP for a 75ml mask, or 4.50 for a 15ml tube. My magazine freebie tube is 30ml.

The mask has a lighter and creamier feel than a lot of clay products. It goes on beautifully, like a moisturising cream, albeit one with a "bitty" feel thanks to the walnut shell pieces. The scent is absolutely out of this world. At first I could mainly smell chamomile and aloe vera ingredients, but as time wore on, the the rose geranium and rosemary oils broke through. In fact the scent constantly develops without ever becoming overpowering.
Just the simple process of spreading the mask out actually feels like it is doing something in this case. You can see and feel the walnut pieces but they are fine in texture and don't make you are being flayed alive.
* Hydrates - my skin did not feel especially hydrated but it did not feel dried out either.
* Brightens and exfoliates - My skin did look brighter and a little more radiant without a doubt but the results were not still obvious the next day.
*Cleanses - I did not notice any deep cleansing of my pesky nose pores, which block easily but to be fair the product promise does not suggest a deep clean. My skin did feel very refreshed though .As it costs more than the products I usually buy, and does nothing special for my skin, it doesn't make sense to buy this myself, much as I love the companies approach. I have decided on 4 stars to reflect a great scent and average performance.
