Who doesn't like to get out of the office for a day? Fresh air, sunshine and a chance to get your 10,000 steps in a day. So it's no surprise that when Balance Me invited our marketing team to come and visit their London office for skin scans, facials and lunch, we jumped at the chance. Once we'd travelled into London, had a quick breakfast in Southwark and a wander around Borough Market, we walked the short distance to Balance Me HQ. Once we'd arrived at their (gorgeous) office, we were welcomed by the lovely team and treated to herbal teas while we eagerly awaited our skin scan and facial sessions with Mandy, a complementary therapist and Balance Me's skincare expert.
Zoe, Marketing Manager -
"My skin scan showed no signs of dehydration and limited areas of excess oil. My skin looked very young for my age (which was very reassuring as the oldest member of our group!). Some signs of sun damage but less than you would expect from someone my age who has also had children. I felt so safe and relaxed in Mandy's hands, she really knows skin and tailored my facial to focus on anti-ageing which is unfortunately crucial now I'm in my forties! She recommended I use the Balance Me Anti-Ageing Face Serum, not to use 'physical' exfoliants due to some broken capillaries and sensitive skin and to always use an SPF in my moisturiser or makeup."
Holly, Relationships Manager -
"Mandy was so lovely and calmed any worries I had about the skin scan. It revealed I needed to hydrate my under eye area (which is common apparently), exfoliate more to keep my skin feeling renewed, and apply SPF everyday under makeup to keep pigmentation at bay. Mandy suggested I use the Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream and drink lots of water to keep my under eye area hydrated. To keep a smooth complexion she recommended I use the Balance Me Radiance Mask several times a week. Finally, to keep my skin safe from the sun she suggested I apply the Balance Me Natural Protection Moisturiser SPF25 under my make-up everyday."
Shannon, Digital Marketing Coordinator -
"The skin scan was fascinating, Mandy explained that my skin is well hydrated but slightly oily in places, so she recommended that I use the Balance Me Congested Skin Serum to keep my enlarged pores clear and blemish free. The facial was so relaxing that I nearly fell asleep and it was completely tailored to my skin's needs. I felt totally refreshed and glowy once it was finished! Mandy suggested that I use an SPF daily to prevent sun damage and the Balance Me Radiance Face Mask to deep cleanse my skin once a week."
After a delicious vegetarian lunch we settled down to actually do some work, taking a look at Balance Me's new look and even getting a sneak peek of the Christmas gift ranges which was very exciting! We had a brilliant day with the Balance Me team and can't wait to visit them again.
