Recently I was very kindly sent the Balance Active Formula Vitamin C Pro-Radiance Serum* and Hyaluronic Moisturiser* from the lovely people at Brodie & Stone. The Balance Active Formula range is an affordable skincare collection that prides itself on using clinically proven ingredients in their quality formulations to ensure visible results without the luxury price tag of high end brands.
Balance Active Formula Vitamin C Pro-Radiance Serum (£5.99)*
It’s lightweight formula absorbs into skin quickly, leaving no greasy residue or dewy finish. When I first saw the small plastic bottle with it’s orange packaging, rubber top and pipet applicator, I was immediately reminded of Ole Henriksen’s Vitamin C Collagen Boosting Truth Serum (£47/30ml), and in some ways it makes for a convincing dupe. The serum is fragrance-free and contains active levels of Illumiscin and Stay-C 50 (two forms of stabilised Vitamin C) plus Zinc PCA and Oleuropein to help tackle age-spots, uneven skin tone and a dull complexion. The serum definitely gives skin a brighter, more radiant appearance. It’s perfect for days when I’m feeling sluggish, tired and when my skin needs an extra boost.
Balance Active Formula Hyaluronic Moisturiser (£6.99)*
The gel-cream formula is suitable for all skin types, dermatologically tested as you’d expect and also non-greasy. The ‘ultra hydration’ moisturiser is gentle enough to use morning and night and contains active levels of Algisium C2 and Hylasome EG10, a powerful type of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid seems to be THE anti-aging ingredient of the moment right now. While I can’t say I have experienced the benefits of it’s highly documented anti-aging properties, I have noticed that it leaves my skin noticeably more ‘plump’ and brighter. This moisturiser is the perfect pick-me-up for skin that’s lost it’s bounce as it smoothes out uneven skin texture and also helps to improve the radiance of the skin.
The Balance Active Formula collection is available now from www.beautyandthebunch.com. Both the Hyaluronic Moisturiser & Pro-Radiance Power Serum can be purchased separately or as part of the money-saving multipack which can save you up to 25%!
