12 x NEW Balance Me Tri-Molecular Hyaluronic Serum (worth £30) to be won
We have 12 of these innovative three-in-one, multi-tasking formulations to give away, each worth £30
Here’s a bit of beauty magic: hyaluronic acid (HA) is your skin’s best friend when it comes to keeping it hydrated. That’s because HA acts like a sponge, holding up to 1000 times its own weight in water.
Hydrated skin is plumper and firmer, glowing and smooth. While dehydrated skin can look dull, lacklustre and tend more easily to sags, bags and wrinkles.
But most forms of HA - which is basically a large sugar not an acid - use a ‘heavy molecule’ hyaluronic acid that cannot penetrate the outer layer of the skin. So it sits on the surface, providing a quick fix for fine lines. That’s fine - but Rebecca and Clare Hopkins, the sisters who founded Balance Me, wanted to go further down into the skin. That led them to combine three different ‘weights’ of HA, all derived from natural fermentation, which work synergistically.
So here’s the geeky bit: HyaCare Filler CL does the surface bit, instantly hydrating the smoothing your skin. Hyaluronic Acid-BT strengthens the skin barrier – our shield against external aggressors – as well as nourishing the dermis (one layer down in the skin). And natural ultra-low weight HyaCare 50 replenishes the HA content in skin cells going forward – so, the brand claims, fine lines become plumped and smoother, and skin looks younger.
Oh, and the serum also contains our favourite aloe vera alongside chamomile water and yarrow to soothe and calm sensitivity and inflammation. You use the serum day and night on damp skin for best effects.
Do we believe the claims? Actually, yes definitely. We’ve known this lovely natural brand (there are virtually no synthetic chemicals) since it started in 2005 and they are the souls of integrity. Balance Me does wide consumer testing on every product and in our own Beauty Bible trials, the products always rate highly. One Balance Me tester found ‘a big difference [after 28 days] using the Serum, especially in lines below my nose and on my upper lip, which are so much more refined, and around my eyes. It has also helped my frown lines, which have been there for years.’
There are instant results too, as Sarah found when she trialled this new serum over a working weekend without quite enough sleep and combatting high winds and rain (looking after her horses…). She applied it under moisturiser in the morning and before night cream at bedtime. ‘I saw a definite subtle improvement in plumpness as well as softness – that velvety feeling when you touch your skin.’ (NB this is Sarah - just adding this bit ten days later: I’ve now been using am/pm for nearly two weeks and am SO seeing more cushiony plumpness and roundedness. This is a keeper.)
We’re thrilled to bring you the chance to win one of 12 skin-peachifying Tri-Molecular Hyaluronic Serum, worth £30. Simply fill in the form below and cross your toes!
