PHB Ethical Beauty Bio-Gel Skin Brightener review
For the past few weeks, I've been testing out the latest skincare launch from the cruelty-free British brand, PHB Ethical Beauty. Meet the Bio-Gel Skin Brightener!

What is it and what does it claim to do?
This is a light gel, serum-like skincare treatment which helps to brighten dark spots, reduce and prevent pigmentation areas, evens out your skin tone and provides overall radiance to your complexion.

What are the key ingredients?
Made from 100% naturally derived ingredients, the Bio-Gel Skin Brightener contains key ingredients such as Aloe Vera to soothe and hydrate, Neroli to target dark spots and dullness, Immortelle to brighten and even out the skin, and Licorice to specifically target melanin production to help reduce the appearance of pigmentation problems. Full INCI can be found here

What's not in it?
This product is free from parabens, palm oil, GM ingredients, sulphates, silicones, mineral oil and petroleum derivatives, artificial colours and fragrances.

Who can use it?
Lots of people can enjoy the Bio-Gel Skin Brightener as there are no animal ingredients in the formula so vegans can use it, and it's also Halal certified. If dark spots, pigmentation marks/areas and general dullness/lack of radiance are skincare concerns to you, you may benefit from incorporating it into your routine. It's safe to use during pregnancy and PHB state that all genders and ages can use it from the age of 3+.  

How do I use it?
I've been using this in place of my usual evening serum whenever I feel that my dull skin needs a brightening boost (I don't have any dark spots or pigmentation areas, so it's something I've wanted to try purely for its overall radiance promoting qualities), so you can use it in the same way after cleansing and toning, and it's gentle enough to use morning and night. I like to follow it up with a  facial oil or moisturiser afterwards as I find that it helps to lock everything in as I love layering my products.

Overall thoughts?
I'll be honest - I wasn't completely enamoured with the PHB Bio-Gel Skin Brightener at first as it didn't seem to really do anything for my skin in the beginning, but after using it for a couple of weeks now, I can see that my complexion does look noticeably brighter than it was before. It smells lovely and fresh, and has a brilliant light texture that sinks into the skin quickly without feeling greasy or sticky, plus it's packaged in a luxurious feeling glass bottle. I wouldn't say that it's an essential in my skincare routine, but it is a nice addition to have and I'll happily continue to use it.

PHB Ethical Beauty Bio-Gel Skin Brightener* (50ml, £25) is available from
