A review of the Pomegranate Face and Body Elixir from Balance Cape Town, a local skincare brand.
My mom first introduced me to the Balance Cape Town brand a few years ago, and I’ve been using the Pomegranate Face and Body Elixir ever since. This is a brand that I’m passionate about and want to support because I know the product actually works!
I have always had very sensitive skin, and I’ve had bad reactions to skincare products in the past (even the ones that have been specially formulated for sensitive skin!). Because I have sensitive skin, I’m always hesitant to try new skincare products.
But I got lucky with the Pomegranate Face and Body Elixir. The oil, which is made with locally-produced pomegranate oil, is now a skincare staple and my go-to product when my skin feels dry and nothing else seems to work. I mostly use the oil on my face, but I’ve also used it to moisturise other parts of my body, and speed up the recovery of scars and bruises. This versatile product can also be used on dry damaged hair and on your nails.
I would recommend the Pomegranate Face and Body Elixir to anyone who has dry, sensitive skin or anyone looking for a natural product that can be used on skin, hair and nails. But if you still need some convincing, take a look at the benefits of pomegranate seed oil and how the Pomegranate Face and Body Elixir works.
The Benefits of Pomegranate Seed Oil
Pomegranate seed oil has been used for cooking and medicinal purposes for years. The seeds are a source of essential nutrients, including vitamin B, C, potassium and magnesium. Pomegranate seed oil also contains omega-5 fatty acid, a powerful antioxidant, and is the only known plant-based source of punic acid, a fatty acid known for its anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic and anti-ageing properties.
There are so many reasons to use a product with pomegranate seed oil. It’s an anti-inflammatory, protects your skin against sun damage, assists with the regeneration of skin, helps reverse skin damage, and moisturises the skin.
The Pomegranate Face and Body Elixir
The face and body elixir contains pomegranate seed oil, vitamin E and rose extracts. The combination of these ingredients creates an oil that regenerates, moisturises and repairs tired, dry and sun-damaged skin.
The oil can be used directly on problem areas like dry elbows or cracked heels, or you can mix the oil with your body lotion or aqueous cream. You only need to use 3 or 4 pumps at a time for the oil to start revitalising your skin (with approximately 250 pumps in each 50ml bottle). To get the most out of this product, Balance Cape Town recommends that you use the oil as often as possible (I mix my oil with my face cream and use it once a day before bed).
The product is perfect for all skin types, including oily skin and those with acne.
