Balancing Act | Formule Intensif no. 2


All orders placed from April 29th thru May 23rd will begin shipping May 24th. 
This ultra-lightweight elixir, rich in  concentrated Linoleic Acid and GLA, is designed to effectively balance oily skin, decrease pore congestion, and soothe inflammation. Gentle enough for even the most sensitive of skin, and with over 8 ways to seamlessly incorporate it into your ritual, Balancing Act is a must-have in your skincare arsenal. 
Apply to face and neck for a gentle, yet potent moisturiser that balances, clarifies, and soothes simultaneously. This lightweight serum can be used morning and night - it works beautifully as a lightweight makeup primer for all skin types, effectively removes stubborn eye and lip makeup at the end of the day, and goes on beautifully over your favorite moisturiser before bed.
Our multi-tasking miracle serum is undiluted by cheap or refined oils. Light and summery Guava fruit combines with fan favorite Sacha Inchi (containing 40x the Omega-3 content of argan oil) and carbon-dioxide extracted Borage flower (containing the highest known GLA content of any plant oil) for a powerhouse blend you'll pick up again and again.  Made without added fragrance or essential oils, Balancing Act's bright, aromatic burst of guava comes from unrefined Guava Fruit oil sustainably sourced in the South of Brazil. 
With three luxurious, Earth-to-Skin ingredients, each 10 ML bottle of Balancing Act is packed with concentrated Omega-3's and Omega-6's that work overtime to restore balance to oily skin, decrease pore congestion, and soothe inflammation for matte, clear skin.
Balancing Act comes housed in a custom, gold-stamped white opal glass bottle with pump and is then nestled in a matte black and gold print box.
