Today’s post is about the ever so neglected face. You probably aren’t as bad as me when it comes down to keeping up a great skin care regime, but I’ve decided to make a change! When I say change, I do mean attempt to give it a good go and trial products effectively to see what works best for me.
Let me just give you a low down on my current facial state. I have for as long as I can remember suffered from spots. They come in the most awkward places and go leaving their mark – arhhh! After doing research I realised I get blackheads (which is a form of acne) due to the opening of the follicle being wider than normal so the sebum and dead skin cells have a chemical reaction with the air. Oxidation of melanin occurs and this is what we know as the dark discolouration.
I am trying to find products that 1. agree with my skin,
2. prevent spots
3. reduce the dark spots
So my hunt began and these are what I got:
CLINIQUE anti-blemish solutions cleansing foam
This is going great so far. The pump is very handy to use. It removes dirt and excess oils off the face, de-clogging the pores completely making my face feel nice and fresh. I reckon I would gain a bigger benefit from this product if I used it AM and PM. Currently I use it PM and my Simple cleanser AM, so a bit of a mix match. After I carry out this routine the skin feels as smooth as a baby’s bottom and appears brighter. I feel I need to use it for a good few months to really see a difference.
I have tried, tested and would recommend this fully. I know skin types are different so I appreciate this may not work for everyone but OMG, what are samples there for. Basically I was just popped into the shop and say the products and the sample was just watching me. After hearing about the hype, I didn’t know if to buy it straight away and sample it properly without makeup on. My mum just picked it up and started applying it to my spots (about 3 of them) saying “just try it out and see if you like”. The next day, poof! The red, round spots had reduced without much evidence left behind. I got so excited and bought it the next day.
