Balance Me freebies!
Glamour are on a roll, girls! As if last month's edition wasn't good enough with the free Benefit primer/highlighter/mascara goodies, they have yet another freebie this month too.
This months edition, it says August on the mag cover (I never understood this?!), comes with a free Balance Me product. The products to chose from include the balancing face moisturiser (worth £11), wonder eye cream (worth £11), pure skin face wash (also worth £11) & intensive lip salve (worth £12). When Glamour costs only £2 I'd say this is a damn good investment! Glamour makes for a good read too ;)
I skipped along (or walked) to Tesco yesterday & they had only the moisturiser & lip salve left in stock. Buttt, as I don't currently have any facial moisturiser & I'm trying to find my skin care routine, I opted for the moisturiser - which is a nice 20ml deluxe sample.
The moisturiser , from their daily essentials range, is aimed at normal to combination skin & claims to smooth, calm & hydrate. Facial moisturising also prevents any visible signs of ageing. Although I am only 20 & don't have any wrinkles just yet, but prevention is better than cure, right? So what does it contain? Soothing spruce knot, anti-oxidant rich moringa, meadowfoam oils, skin-brightening bergamot & balancing neroili. I'm not gonna lie, I have no idea what any of these are, but they sound good don't they?!
It is made from 99% natural products. You can tell this from it's fragrance - although it isn't an unpleasant smell, you can tell there are no added scents. Another bonus is that the products are produced in the UK - I am all for this!
I used it this morning, for the first time, after rinsing off a face mask. I know that from 1 use I'm not going to see any dramatic differences, but my skin definitely feels smoother & hydrated!
Have you guys used any of the other freebies?
