Balance Active Formula Skincare – Budget Skincare without Compromise!

Hello Beauties,

I have recently been trying out a brand that is new to me, called Balance Active Formula Skincare. I have to confess to being a bit of a skincare snob and always wanting what I hope is the most effective products for 47 year old skin.

Well the Balance Active Skincare set is just that. It is very cost effective skincare, without some of the frills, but all of the quality and latest ingredients packed in. 

It can be found in Savers, Home Bargains, Fragrance Direct and Just Beauty. I am honestly surprised by how good this is! I thought it might not be enough for my thirsty skin, but it was very skin nourishing and light on the skin too. It sank in really well and left my skin soft to the touch and hydrated. These qualities are a must have in any skincare product for me. At 47, most important is hydration!

So the first item is Bye Bye Tired Eyes; it is a lovely light, cooling gel like texture, a nice wake up for the eyes in the morning. It has Syn-Ake Venom & active levels levels of Eyepro 3x in. It brightens, refreshes and helps with under eye dark circles, but most importantly it firms and nourishes. I was really surprised how good it was, I felt it helped firm and brighten my whole under eye area and what value at just £2.99!

So my next item is the Wrinkle-Freeze Serum with again Syn-Ake @ 4%, a synthetic form of snake venom. It helps relax the deeper face muscles and when they relax our faces look less tense, more relaxed and youthful. The serum is light, easy to apply and there is a real cooling and freshness to these products that I like.

This serum aims to relax facial muscles, reduce frown lines & crow’s feet. It felt soft & cooling, absorbed into the skin really well. Impressed again!

Lastly is the Instant Effect Wrinkle Killer and it is like a balm that goes on top of everything that gives an immediate  ‘flash effect’  lifting and smoothing line filler. It again has the active Syn-ake formula, MATRIXYL & Synthe. Packed full of active ingredients this has caught my interest the most, as it gives powerful skincare results through the day. It is light, fresh, skin nourishing with a great delivery system and I get a slight tingle with it approx £4.74.

It is full of wrinkle relaxing and plumping peptides, that tackle anti-aging on the face by relaxing the facial expression muscles and plumping the skin from underneath, making you look younger, brighter and fresher.

You can use this by patting it over areas you want to treat, like crow’s feet, nasolabial lines and any wrinkles you want to treat. It can also be used on the neck and chest to smooth out sun damage and wrinkles there too, just £3.49!

Over time, the longer you use these products, the better the results you will get on your skin. I thought I would try these products and think ‘meh’ but I don’t. I have to think it is very clever and a very affordable price range for all.

Oh and it is also paraben free, most important, so it will not cause a lot of skin irritations that some creams do .. this range is not to be snuffed at! It is a hard working synergy of products to help you battle the daily process of ageing!

That is it for now folks!

Take care,
