Now I’ll be the first person to admit I have a bit of a thing for fancy skincare and makeup, if it’s expensive, the consumer in me instantly thinks ‘it must be good’ – and especially if it’s pretty, it’s most likely I’ll want to buy it. This is pretty ridiculous though, price does not necessarily indicate how good or effective a product will be, and how nice the packaging look definitely doesn’t reflect on what’s inside, it just entices us to make a purchase.
I do try to look beyond fancy packaging, high end names, and crazy price tags though, and give more purse friendly skincare and makeup a go. Just because something is expensive, it doesn’t mean it’s any good, and jus because something is budget, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s of lesser quality. I’ve tried some excellent makeup that’s cheap as chips (Makeup Revolution for example) and now I’ve discovered some effective budget skincare products too…
So, this brings me on to Balance Active Formula products. This is a new brand to me, and I was surprised at their extensive range of skincare, as well as their very affordable prices.
Balance Active Formula offers high performance skincare at realistic prices, and they use only the latest clinically proven ingredients to give visible results. It’s refreshing to see they don’t overprice their products to pay for expensive advertising and excessive packaging.
These products can be purchased from a site called Beauty and the Bunch, which specialises in ‘bunching up’ beauty and skincare products so you can save money, rather than buying items singularly.
The Balance Active Formula ‘Youthful Bunch’ includes three products –
Hyaluronic Moisturiser – this contains active levels of Algisium C2, a multi-functional skin perfecting ingredient, as well as Hylasome EG10, a powerful type of ultra-moisturising hyaluronic acid. Together they work to moisturise and even skin tone, improve radiance, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and smooth skin’s texture. This is a lovely ultra-hydrating gel-cream product that soaks into my skin, leaving it feeling plump and refreshed.
Stop Puffy Eyes Eye Gel – this is a refreshing and revitalising eye gel with Aloe Vera and active levels of REGU-AGE to help reduce the appearance of eye puffiness and fine lines. REGU®-AGE is an active complex of rice & soy peptides, and it’s clinically proven to help brighten the eye area and help reduce the appearance of eye puffiness & fine lines. I have a real problem with dark circles and puffy eye bags, so this product sounds perfect for me! The gel definitely feels cooling and refreshing on my eye area, I think I’m starting to see improvement in my eye puffiness, I’m hoping that longer use will bring even better results!
Vitamin C Power Serum – this is a light-weight and non greasy pro-radiance serum that contains active levels of Illumiscin and Stay-C 50. The synergistic action of these two forms of stabilised Vitamin C plus Zinc PCA and Oleuropein results in reduced age-spots and a brighter, smoother more radiant and even toned complexion. Now I do love a serum, and this Vitamin C Serum is just fantastic. I’ve been using it on a daily basis and my skin has been feeling better all round, my complexion just looks more healthy and radiant.
