Balance Active Vitamin C Power Serum Review

Balance Active Formula Vitamin C Power Serum Review

The world of serums is something I've only recently begun exploring. I wasn't sure what to expect from them, or whether they were just going to be another unnecessary step added to my skincare routine. The Balance Active Formula Vitamin C Power Serum* claims to brighten your complexion, even out your skin tone, decrease appearance of age spots and smoothen the skin. For all skin types, it contains Vitamin C to improve the complexion for younger looking skin. 

From the description of this product I think it's clear I'm not exactly the target market, it might be more appropriate for my mum! However, my skin can always do with some brightening and keeping it looking young. The serum is very lightweight and non greasy, it skins into the skin quickly without leaving any residue or tackiness. I apply this all over my face and the top of my neck both morning and night and one full 'tube' of the pipette easily covers it all. The thing I like about this product the most is the smell, it has a refreshing, orangey smell that really wakes me up in the morning!

I guess the main question is, does it do anything? Now I've already said, I'm not exactly the target market for this product, I don't have any age spots, my skin doesn't particularly need firming or to look much younger! Therefore I can't really comment on those aspects, however I have found this to make my skin feel a bit smoother and it gives a nice extra layer of hydration before I go in with the rest of my skincare. I'm not sure if my skin is looking any brighter in the 4 weeks I've been using this, however I will be continuing to use it, as it's a lovely fresh scent which really rejuvenates me and wakes me up.

At £5.99 this product is a really good price as it lasts for ages, I've been using it twice a day for a month and I'm about half way through. I was lucky enough to be given another one of these at the Bloggers Festival I attended recently, so I'm going to be passing that over to my mum to see if she notices any improvements with her slightly older skin. Unfortunately, this isn't a holy grail product that I will swear by and send everyone out to buy, however it isn't a bad product and I've been enjoying using it. I think for someone who may benefit more from some it's actions would love this. If this sounds like something you might be interested in trying you can buy from Beauty & The Bunch.
