Saje Balancing Elixir Review

Saje Balancing Elixir Review

Essential Oils have quickly become one of my favourite things; they have a wide variety of uses whether you want to use them for home fragrance, cleaning or even skincare. It’s just a matter of knowing your sensitivities and never putting undiluted essential oils directly on the skin! Recently I’ve been using the Saje Balancing Elixir which is jam-packed with some beneficial essential oils!

Saje Balancing Elixir Review

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, it took me forever to get into using oils in my skincare. I was always under the impression that oils would make oily skin more oily. (How many more times can I say oil/oily in this post!?) I also haven’t tried anything from Saje before because in all honesty I thought that their essential oils were pretty pricey.

Saje Natural Wellness was founded by a husband and wife team and focuses on 100% natural ingredients; they are also owned and operated in Canada 🇨🇦 and have a strong focus on sustainability through how they choose and package their products.

The Saje Balancing Elixir retails for $24.95 CAD

Bring oily, combination or blemish-prone skin into balance while replenishing moisture for a soft, renewed look and feel. Ideal for combination or oily skin.
The three key ingredients in this elixir are Tea Tree Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Myrtle Essential Oil. 
On the website they state that you should use 3-4 drops after cleansing and toning.

The Full Ingredient List 🌱

  • Rosehip fruit oil (rosa canina) which is used to help lighten dark spots and hydrate itchy skin.
  • Grapeseed oil (vitis vinifera) is chock full of vitamin E and helps to hydrate dry skin.
  • Evening primrose oil (oenothera biennis) is especially good for skin conditions like eczema. It also helps to hydrate.
  • Geranium (pelargonium graveolens) helps to minimize the look of fine lines and can help with dermatitis or acne.
  • Bergamot (citrus bergamia) can help fade scars and heal skin, plus it smells amazing.
  • Lavender (lavandula angustifolia) can help aid skin conditions like acne, eczema and dermatitis. It has anti-bacterial properties.
  • Ylang ylang (cananga odorata) is great for treating acne-prone skin due to it’s antiseptic properties.
  • Myrtle (myrtus communis) helps to balance oily skin and can help control acne.
  • Tea tree (melaleuca alternifolia) is an anti-bacterial and will help to kill bacteria that cause acne.

How does the Saje Balancing Elixir Work?

I’ve been using this elixir nightly in my skincare routine for just over six weeks now, which is usually the length of time it takes for a skincare product to make a somewhat noticeable difference. However, I honestly can’t say that this has really changed my skin at all.

My skin has still been more acne-prone due to the hormone changes (thanks pregnancy!) and the change of seasons has left it more dehydrated than usual. I do enjoy using the Saje Balancing Elixir, but I just don’t know if it’s really done much. There’s still a ton left in the bottle, so I think I have another few months worth of product to test.

It’s not something I’d say for you to run out and buy right away, but if you do have acne-prone and oily skin this may help. It certainly hasn’t caused more acne so it’s worth a try if you haven’t been able to find anything else.

Do you use oils regularly in your skincare routine?
