I have been using 5 interesting skin care products for my combination skin recently that have really impressed me, some expensive and some not so expensive! Having combination skin is tricky work as you have to balance the blemishes or dryness!
I recently took the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Spotscan skin analysis test and it recommended some products and one of them was their Effaclar Astringent Micro-Exfoliant Anti-Blackheads Lotion. Its a lovely everyday lotion which keeps the impurities under control. I do suffer breakouts when I have my time of the month so this has been a real help to me in keeping my face cleansed.
Your Good Skin Rapid Rescue Treatment Blemish Clearing is a lightweight gel which you apply direct to the blemish to reduce it. I have been really thoroughly impressed by it as my blemishes reduced considerably after using it. You have to re-apply it everyday to keep the bacteria under control so the spot doesn’t come back but it also soothes and heals the skin. The ingredients includes 2% Salicylic Acid which is the key ingredient to treat the blemishes.
Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum is a gel-creamy consistency serum which keeps the dehydration at bay. This is a lovely, lovely serum, expensive but worth every penny. If you can afford it on a regular basis, buy it as you won’t regret it!
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is one product I have been saving for sooooo long! I finally decided to use it and I’ve loved it. The rich marine and plant actives work to smooth and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s a wonderful product and widely regarded as one of the best in the market and after using it I am a total convert to it.
From an expensive, renowned cream to a great budget bargain, Simple Skin Quench Sleeping Cream has really impressed me. This silky light moisturizer which I put an every night before going to bed locks the moisture in to the skin and you can instantly feel the plumpness to the skin. if you have minor break outs, it also helps to prevent them because if you have dehydrated it can cause blemishes too! I had no irritation, redness or breakouts from using it and my skin felt hydrated. This is a sure fire winner!
The one thing I enjoy about skincare is that your skin can look and feel good without having to break the bank. Yes, I have included Elemis and Drunk Elephant but Your Good Skin and Simple prove that you can buy great skin care for under ten pounds! Companies are constantly improving what they are putting into the ingredients and this is only good for us ladies who want their skin too look great.
All have been used up, loved and all will go into the recycling bin!
