The idea of cleansing your skin with oil can, understandably, be assumed as counterproductive. However the natural plant oils in our Balance Cleansing Oil bind with excess oil, make up, SPF and dirt molecules. The addition of a natural emulsifier melts away these impurities when the cleansing oil comes into contact with water, leaving you with clean, soft and glowing skin.

Gentle and effective, Balance simultaneously cleanses and nourishes and is suitable even for the most sensitive skin.

If you are unsure about using a cleansing oil on acne prone skin, read on to discover The Oil Epiphany.

The Oil Epiphany  

One of the biggest concerns is the fear of putting oil onto oily skin but oil is one of the best antidotes to acne. The reason for this is that cleansing with harsh chemicals strips the skin of oil. When this happens, your skin works to overproduce more oil to overcompensate, upsetting the natural balance of your skin.

Adding oil to your skincare routine, allows your skin to retain moisture, protect the skin barrier and infuse linoleic acid that helps pores remain decongested. Your skin receives a healthy dose of minerals and nutrients, while simultaneously removing dead skin cells and any dirt from the day. And the best bit is your face will feel good after cleansing and not tight or dehydrated. Remember: tight skin is thirsty skin. So if you have acne and you’re nervous it’s totally understandable but give it a try, you will never look back once you experience the oil epiphany for yourself.

The Hero Ingredients

Our Balance Cleansing Oil is infused with anti-inflammatory seaweed harvested from the shores of St Martins, and packed full of antioxidants to soothe skin. Seaweed is also full of essential vitamins that help to improve skin tone, texture, and elasticity. High in linoleic acid, organic hemp seed oil helps to unclog pores.


The addition of a natural emulsifier turns the cleansing oil to milk when combined with water. Nourishing, non-stripping and free from essential oils and fragrance, Balance gently cleanses and protects the skin barrier, leaving you with a healthy glow.

How To Use Cleansing Oil

Massage two pumps of Balance Cleansing Oil into your face. Splash with warm water and remove the cleanser thoroughly with a warm washcloth. While skin is still damp, follow with a few drops of Nurture Face Oil. 

Take a moment to deeply inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth, releasing any tension as you do so.

Just received the body oil and couldn’t wait to try it. It smells so good and reminds me of being by the sea and is luxurious on the skin. Will definitely be buying again.

The Soothe Hand and Body Balm is perfect for anyone like me prone to eczema. Particularly with so much hand washing and sanitising going on! A little goes a long way, even on my dry hands and it keeps your hands moisturised even during several more washes. For me, it’s great that it doesn’t have irritating essential oils too. I love it!

Trish Peacock

The bath salts are perfect for relocating your soul and mind to a luxurious and peaceful place.


I love using all of your products, but my favourite is the body oil. The smell is sooo wonderful and you only need a small amount. It sinks in beautifully and is particularly good to use just before bed because it is so relaxing.

Sharon Hodgkins

The Soothe Balm is a must have, just an amazing all purpose magic pot! Great for dry and very dry skin, great for sensitive skin.


I honestly love all of the products, but the bath salts are amazing!!

I’ve used the Soothe Balm on my eczema, heals and some burns and it really calms everything down and is so nourishing, highly recommend 5*

Amy Oliver

I absolutely love the Soothe Balm. I work in hospital (in admin) so obviously my hands can get very dry from all of the hand sanitising gel we have to use. The balm is just so nice and soothing and really does help with my dry skin. I found it so helpful that I brought tins of it for some of my colleagues in Cardiology as Christmas presents- they love it as well.


The body wash smells amazing, and really was lovely to breathe in all of the aromas in the shower. My skin now feels soothed and pampered, thank you so much!

Michelle Gee

I am really enjoying the therapeutic spa like shower gel!

Carolyn Hallet

I adore your body wash which I also use as a bath foam. It smells divine and doesn’t dry my skin. Thank you for choosing sustainable packaging which is always a massive plus.


In love with the Nourish Body Oil, non-greasy, super moisturising, gorgeous scent and all natural. All in beautiful and recyclable bottles. A little bit of luxurious self- care before bed.
