British sisters Clare and Rebecca Hopkins were seeking what we all dream of: a better work-life balance. Their journey led them to make a few changes. In 2005, the two women swapped their corporate careers for a focus on holistic beauty. They started by whipping up products in their kitchen, but quickly became a favorite among UK beauty editors and racked up awards. Their line blends essential oils with high-tech formulas and natural actives to create hardworking products for face and body that balance skin instead of stripping it via the use of harsh chemicals. All Balance Me products are free of parabens, sulfates, petroleum, mineral oils, silicones, dea, pegs, propylene glycol, and artificial fragrances and colors.
