Tamaar London Balance Advanced Natural Sebum Balancing Cream Complex

One of the things I love the most about blogging is the opportunity to try brands I have never heard of or come across until an email has landed in my inbox.  Sometimes you find products you don't like and sometimes there are products you just love using.  Tamaar London is one of those brands.  I have never heard of it, come across it or knew it existed until an email arrived.

I was kindly gifted the Tamaar London Balance Advanced Natural Sebum Balancing Cream Complex (£42) and it is designed for oily but sensitive skin.  I have combination-oily and that means I can have dry skin too, but predominantly, my t-zone is where the afternoon shine creeps in, so a cream, lotion, gel or even primer that claims to regulate or balance the production of excess sebum is much welcomed.  Tamaar London is new to me and this is what they say about themselves:
Our products bring to you natural ingredients both used traditionally around the world for centuries to newer innovative multi-functional blends. Our first range of products have been clinically proven and provide a, safer natural solution to commonly found skin problems such as Hyperpigmentation, Acne, Ageing Skin, Dry Skin & Eczema. 
The ingredients and unique formulations we use are gentle, yet effective, hence do not irritate the skin as would some traditional synthetic ingredients, just clean plant based products. 
Our founding member and Pharmacist has spent several years researching natural active ingredients to develop high performance, results-driven skincare products that do not compromise with quality.

The Balance Advanced Natural Sebum Balancing Cream Complex is described as being a unique formula contains oils and extracts that have been carefully selected for their antimicrobial, skin calming and nourishing properties. It helps balance excess sebum without over-drying the skin and it uses the following ingredients to do just that:
  • Tamarind Extract - Taramind is the fruit of Tamarindus indica, a species which originates from India. They are shiny and black and boast a number of health benefits. Taramind seeds can help improve the elasticity of the skin as well as helping to keep skin smooth and hydrated, some say it is more beneficial to the skin than Hyaluronic Acid. It is the perfect antidote to the effect of ageing.
  • Annatto Seed Extract - Contains a more potent form of Vitamin E and helps to reduce the damage caused by harmful UV light as well as dryness, hyperpigmentation and loss of elasticity.
  • Holy Basil - Used for its antibacterial properties
  • Tumeric Root Extract - So many people I know swear my Turmeric being a miracle ingredient. Within this cream, it is used for its powerful -anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities.
  • Kefir Milk Probiotics - Rich in beneficial probiotic bacteria, it’s proven to increase skin ceramide levels and has been shown to improve inflammatory skin conditions such as Acne, Rosacea and Ezcema.

For me, this is a product full of fascinating ingredients that you might not find elsewhere. It is also worth noting that all of Tamaar Skincare's products are formulated with a climate-responsive emulsifier which is based on patented technology that transforms natural waxes to automatically adapt to the local environment and climate.

The cream has a really lightweight texture and I find I need just a few pumps from the bottle is enough product to be used.  The directions are to apply to a freshly cleansed face both morning and evening, but taking care to avoid the eye contour area.   When it comes to the scent, I really like it, the Tamarind Extract is the something that really stands out to me with its sweet almost citrus-like aroma.  On the skin, it absorbs super-quickly, every time I use it, gone within a nanosecond of application and there is no greasy film or tackiness left behind on the skin.

Having been using this Balancing Cream Complex for a good few months now, what I have noticed is that on the days I use the cream, my skin is less shiny, it hasn't stopped the excess sebum, it just isn't as noticeable.  On the days when I haven't used the cream, that mid-afternoon shine is definitely there and I am glad that this cream does make a difference to how my skin feels and behaves.
