Balance is the perfect solution for oily or acne-prone skin types that still need to start their day with soothing hydration.

TIA Review by Marta:
Balance is a pale blue, soothing and cooling cream with a lovely whiff of lavender. It has been formulated (at a most reasonable price, I must say) to control breakouts, calm irritation and regulate shine - all without drying out the skin at all. I have found that I can use it all over the face, or just where needed and it plays nice with any other potions I happen to be using.
Although YBF bills it as perfect for 20-somethings, my 50-year old skin is finding it extremely useful and the addition of L-carnosine is giving me an antiaging boost. I even found myself recommending it along YBF Prep to a 40-something reader who emailed me for advice for her oily, sensitive skin that had blocked pores and had been subjected to too much retinol.
YBF always tends to be a bit out there (in a good way) and I had to grin when I saw that Balance contains tetradecylthioacetic acid (TTA). This was one of our ingredients to look out for in 2010. As well as being an antioxidant, it is anti-inflammatory and may hold promise for helping those with acne. It protects cell proteins and metabolism and, it seems, regulating the sebum that is responsible for acne.
In the anti-acne dept, we can also find niacin and vitamin B. Bisabolol, hyaluronate and azulene soothe, hydrate. Dab it on before your morning commute and YBF claims that the soothing lavender and neroli oils will banish rush hour blues.
