Skincare saviours #1

My skin has been what can only be described as 'crappy' recently, but luckily it's on the mend thanks to these skincare saviours...

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo*
The only place where I seem to get spots these days is on my chin. I never used to get that many spots when I was younger, they all seem to have waited until now to appear...cheers for that spots. Anyway, after a horrible breakout I decided to give this sample of La Roche-Posay's Effaclar Duo a go. I had read so many good things about it (and the newer Duo+) so had high expectations and I am happy to say it worked like a charm.  It did an excellent job at soothing the skin, calming the irritation and clearing up the nasty spots. I am definitely going to buy the Effaclar Duo+ as I hear it's even better than the original!

The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion
Although I dislike the smell, the Tea Tree night lotion is a product I use on my skin every night. It is designed to improve the appearance of blemish damaged skin. The only places where I have blemishes is on my chin, but I still apply this all over my face as I love how refreshing it feels! I definitely think this product is working for me, as despite all of the breakouts I have been having on my chin, there isn't any obvious scarring. I also find a little goes a long way with this product, which is great because it means it'll last so much longer.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Mask
Another fantastic product from The Body Shop is the Vitamin E Moisture Mask. I am a big fan of the Vitamin E range, so it was no surprise that I took an instant liking to this product. You simply pop it on your face after you have cleansed, leave it on for ten minutes (so it can work it's magic) and then simply 'tissue it off.' It soothes and hydrates the skin making it feel oh-so-nourished. If you are looking for a moisturising face mask, give this one a go. If you want to give it a try, without buying the full sized version (£12.00), you can pick up a sample sachet for just £1.50!

Soap and Glory Make Yourself Youthful Rejuvinating Eye Cream
Even though I don't think I need to use anti-ageing products at the age of twenty three, I do use an anti-ageing eye cream. This is not why I picked it up though. I actually picked it up because it claimed to fight dark circles and under eye puff. Being quite pale skinned, under eye circles are something that I notice, but I have found that this eye cream works a treat! I simply dot it under the eyes and very gently pat it into the skin every morning and night.

At £14.00 it is not the cheapest eye cream available (nor is it the most expensive) so if you are just looking for an eye cream to keep the delicate skin around your eyes healthy and hydrated, you will easily find a cheaper alternative. However if you are looking to banish dark circles, I highly recommend giving the Soap and Glory eye cream a go! Obviously I can't speak for it's 'youthful rejuvenating' claim, as I'm still technically youthful...*winks*

  1. I'm currently giving Proactive a try since my face has been breaking out like crazy lately, seems like something to do with my hormones, but we shall see! Hopefully it works since it was £30.

    1. I hope it works for you! I think the break outs on my chin are hormonal too! xo
