Day Eight - Saving Face

There is one thing I am jealous of.... All of you with amazing skin!

I suffer from mild adult acne and often have really bad break outs. And its not just normal pimples I get. I'm talking boil like, red lumpy things! 

I've used just about every product on the market! Some work for a few weeks. Some don't work at all and some actually make my skin worse!!!!

I think I have now found a routine that is good for my skin!

Face Soap and Clarity 3-in-1 daily vitamin C facial wash from Soap and Glory. Makes my face feel super clean and fresh! It does make my face slightly dry, but as long as I moisturise its fine. 

Fab pore hot cloth cleanser. In one words.... AMAZING! I had the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser and I honestly think that this one is better. It smells fabulous and melts away all traces of make up and grim from the day! And it leaves my skin feeling like a babies bottom!!!!

Clean and clear dual action moisturiser. I use this product everyday. It really rehydrating and perfectly finishes my daily facial cleansing.

If my break out is particularly bad I break out the big boy! PanOxyl.
This literally clears my skin in a few days. Its pretty much the same stuff as doctors prescribe but at half the price. Its pretty harsh and I can only use it for a maximum of 3/4 days, but its normally done its job by then.

What skin care products do you use? Is there any other products you recommend?

  1. I'm so glad you posted this, thank you - I've got mild acne too and have been thinking about trying something new, I'll definately give S&G a go.

    I just use Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Cleansing & Toning Lotion at the moment, it's adequate for the price but doesn't appear to be helping my acne at all.

    I wonder if it's a coincidence that my skin has cleared up since I've been using S&G Scrub Your Nose In It (face scrub and mask, though it's quite gentle as opposed to the gritty types).

  2. I don't suffer from acne but instead have extreme combination skin. No matter what I use on my nose it is oily within 10 minutes and my skin reacts to a lot of moisturisers, turning it scarlet red.

    I have found that the Body Shop Vitamin E products work well and Clinique moisturiser is mild enough not to cause a reaction.

  3. i suffer with spots which can really knock my confidence, i might have to try some of these products.
