Hi there! Since it’s the last day of the month, today’s post is about my favourite products in January. I’ve chosen my TOP 3 and the honourable mentions from all the products I reviewed this past month, and here they are…
3rd place – Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Soothing Hydrating Lotion With Delicate Oat
Runner-Up – Boots Sheet Mask With Added Dipeptide
Garnier’s oat body lotion is amazing. My skin’s enjoying it very much!
Boots did a fantastic job with their Dipeptide sheet mask. It’s wow!
WINNER – Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads
Superdrug’s vegan and cruelty-free vitamin C cleansing pads are outstanding. They’re cleansing, brightening and safe for use around the eyes! Well done, Superdrug!
Onto the honourable mentions! I love Imperial Leather’s Spa shower creams. Nivea’s Fresh Skin face mask was lovely, and Primark’s Hydrate sheet mask was a very nice surprise!

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!
