Balance Me pops up in Covent Garden (in the most Zen way)


Pop-ups can be a bit frenzied. But Balance Mes temporary space on Covent Garden’s Mercer Street is, by contrast, a positive oasis in the concrete jungle for the next 10 days or so (till 7th October). Positive in every way, in fact.

We swung by yesterday to this spacious 'immersive experience' for a preview and a catch-up with founders Rebecca and Clare Hopkins. And to get a first look at their really lovely new packaging look (by the clever designer Flo Bayley).

You are also invited over the coming days to 'find your Moment of Balance' – whether you've a spare quarter of an hour or so in a frantic day (um, that was us) through to a blissful free morning.

Excitingly, as well as being able to touch/see/try/smell the products, there's a fantastic range of activities on offer, from joining Rebecca's Run Club – to pound the city pavements ­­– through to yoga and movement classes, skincare workshops and more.

Maybe you want to Make Your Own Natural Skincare. Or sign a teenager up for the Balancing Teen Skin Workshop. Or simply enjoy a Skincare Consultation. They can all be booked via the link below, and have been incredibly well thought out, enlisting the help of experts like Yoga Chef's Kimberley Parsons, or facialist Mandy Oxley Swan.

Read the full run-down of activities here.

We'd quite like to move in, please...
