The Giveaway / Balance Me Total Skin Routine – CLOSED

Tweet | Facebook | Email

If I had a pound for every Black Friday e-mail that’s pinged into my inbox today… Well, I wouldn’t need any money off anything. I imagine you’re in a similar camp and have an inbox containing a glut of money-saving deals, so I won’t today tread that hackneyed ground on these pages. Instead, I’m going to offer up a giveaway (which I suppose is the most money-saving thing of all for whoever wins, but the subtle distinction is important to me!).

Today it’s all about Balance Me. The brand is British-made and is a great find for those who know what addle their skin as every single ingredient is listed on the packaging. This routine covers a few bases so you should be able to share the product love among your friends/family – here’s what’s in there and how I’d suggest using:

Balance Me Flash Cleanse Micellar Water / Apply to cotton pad, wipe over face to remove make-up before cleansing. The dispenser is great on this one – like a nail polish remover bottle, you just push the pad on the top to release the fluid without any spills or wastage.

Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm / Massage onto a dry face – ideally, you’d make time to work this into your skin so that the little oat kernels had an opportunity to remove dead skin, though you could complete this step in a minute if need be. Remove with a flannel soaked in warm (not hot!) water.

Balance Me Anti-Ageing Face Serum / This is a fairly oily serum so you only need a dash. If you’re oily, try using this to see if it regulates your own oil production (it may well halt the overproduction), though if you notice congestion occurring after a few days stop using. If you’re dry, slap it on, massaging it in – though I’d recommend applying a hyaluronic-rich serum first to combat dehydration.

Balance Me Moisture Rich Face Cream & Balance Me Radiance Face Oil / Which of these you use – and how – is entirely up to you. As a rule, SPF should follow in the morning, and I think both should go on after serum (though some like oil to be applied directly to freshly-cleansed face – there is nothing wrong with doing that), and I sometimes mix a little oil into moisturiser or vice versa. Have a play. See what works for you.

Balance Me Instant Lift Pore Minimiser / I’m wary of anything claiming to ‘minimise’ pores and wouldn’t have included this were it not for it’s priming chops. Try it post-serum pre-party to give your skin a little extra oomph.

Balance Me Congested Skin Serum / Clever because it’s non-drying, this contains a host of antibacterial oils and calming ingredients to bring down inflammation, though I’d have a peep at the ingredients list if you’re sensitive and essential oils make you flare up.

Balance Me Radiance Face Mask / Containing kaolin clay, a touch of walnut shell powder and a whammy of lovely plant-based oils, this is a sort of all-in-one, whack it on when your skin’s feeling stressed mask. Again: essential oils here so tread carefully.

I also got a load of toys from The Entertainer but remembering them all will be a task as just added to the trove already in the loft as soon as bought. I remember getting a game of some kind from their list from £20 to £10 so definitley made some savings.

    I have already signed up. Yes I did. I took Lakeland by storm. I only went in to get a new ice cream maker (if you have never made your own you dont know what your missing)which was on Black Friday offer and ofcourse I couldn’t leave without buying some other kitchen gadgets on sale. I am afraid it was all to keep my family stomachs happy. Not for me.

    Though I was at the hairdressers the day before where I bought some extra’s that a gal has too have which were specials for Christmas

  • Emily Foster says:

    Hey, so this year I laid off of the Black Friday sales. Sadly I don’t get paid until the last Friday! However I feel a little proud of myself that I resisted so many offers! I have a tendancy to buy for the sake of it and I am sure I would have had parcels arriving for months! So this year was a Black Friday Black Out for me! However as soon as I am paid I am buying some lovely new Balance Me goodies to help my skin ride out the rough winter weather! xx

  • Kay Broomfield says:

    You can’t live vicariously through me I’m afraid as I didn’t buy anything! I was at work so managed to avoid all the drama. I’d rather pay a little extra and not have to battle for a bargain!

  • janet dilley says:

    Went into Leicester City today to John Lewis with the vouchers I had for my birthday. Bought a microwave oven with 10% off as my old one melted because I cooked something for 7 minutes when it only needed 40 seconds. Also bought a hoover with a reduction of £220.00 as my old one was making my housework even harder. Shame my presents went on household items rather than ME…! X

  • Jacqui says:

    No living vicariously through me, I’m afraid! I bought nothing, because buying things just because they’re on sale would be WRONG! Very, very wrong. Winning Balance Me products, however, would be so, so right, because every day should be a balance me day.

  • Kim Jones says:

    I bought the game Dishonored 2 as a Christmas present for my partner, paid half price.

    Signed up! I only bought some Christmas stuff for the kids (mine being teenagers) it was overpriced stuff from Nike and JD Sports. So no bargains as nothing was on sale that they wanted….although I got £22 cashback on a pair of trainers through quidco so that softened the blow a tad.
