June Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last working day of the month. This means that today’s post is about all the products I loved the most this month. I picked my top 3 from all the products I reviewed in June, and there are a few honourable mentions as well. Let’s start with the top 3!

3rd place – Miss Sporty Lipliners 007 Slow, 013 Coconut, 014 Earth

I enjoy using these lipliners. They can also be used as matte lipsticks, and they look amazing with gloss on top!

Runner-Up – Balance Active Formula Vitamin C Brightening Serum

This vitamin C serum is one of the best serums I’ve ever tried. I think Balance did an amazing job with this one!

WINNER – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Acid Daily Cleansing Pads

These glycolic acid cleansing pads are absolutely fantastic. I’ve enjoyed them very much, and I’ll repurchase them soon!

Onto the honourable mentions! I liked Garnier’s Skin Active Matcha + Kaolin Mask and The Crème Shop’s Holiday Cheer And Clear “Nice” Stay In Control Face Mask.

Nivea’s Free Time and Harmony Time Shower Creams are very enjoyable, the two Body-X shower gels I tried are lovely, and Superdrug’s B. Soft Multi Acid Retexturising Pads are great too.

Have you tried any of these products? Would you like to try them? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading! 😊

Balance Active Formula Vitamin C Brightening Serum

Hi there! Today’s post is about the serum I’m using at the moment – Balance Active Formula Vitamin C Brightening Serum. This is a lightweight and non-greasy serum that is aimed at all skin types. It contains 2 forms of vitamin C which promise a brighter and more even looking complexion as well as glowing and smoother looking skin.

I was curious about the 2 forms of vitamin C, so I did some research and found out that… sodium ascorbyl phosphate (which is listed as the 3rd ingredient) is supposed to be the gold standard vitamin C derivative for acne-prone skin. It’s one of the most stable vitamin C derivatives, and it’s said to treat acne without side effects. Wow! And ascorbyl glucoside (which is listed as the 6th ingredient) is apparently one of the most effective vitamin C derivatives when it comes to brightening. This sounds great, doesn’t it?

I’ve been using this serum twice a day for well over a month now, and I think it’s excellent. I haven’t had a single spot since I started using the serum. This stuff is truly impressive and I’m blown away! 😱 😍

I’m also happy to report that this serum helps with brightening skin. My skin is brighter and my skin tone looks more even and more refreshed. I’m enjoying this serum very much, and I will continue to use it during the summer. But I’m also looking forward to using the other Balance serums I bought last week.

Balance Active Formula Vitamin C Brightening Serum is available as 30ml. I paid £2.99 (Home Bargains) for this gem!
