So being English I'm going to stereotypically talk about the beautiful English summer that has finally began to show its face, and typically the second the sun creeps out is the same second my skin decides to go into meltdown, meaning more shopping! (shame!)
A few days before I went shopping I was looking around online and stumbled apon the Witch anti-blemish skin clearing primer, I haven't found my perfect primer yet and I'm always on the hunt for one, and this baby claims to fight and prevent spots and keep your make up on too, I couldn't turn down this challenge! I found this in Superdrug and at half price too (£3.49). I also spotted it in Tesco too. This is probably the best £3.49 I've spent in months! To begin with I was very impressed with the texture, its creamy and soaks in well. It created a great base for my make up, and counteracted some of the redness I have on my cheeks. During the day I was also noticing my make up was staying on longer, and still looked nice and refreshed. And ontop of all that I've noticed a significant reduction in breakouts! I know right?! Stop traffic! I think I may have found my perfect primer.
Also in Superdrug, I picked up was the Garnier Pure Active 2in1 Anti-spots roll on. I'd been umm-ing and ahh-ing about picking this up in Boots, but the product only comes in two shades and I didn't want to fork out £7 in boots on a product that wasn't the right shade. When I saw it at half price (£3.82) in Superdrug, I was slightly keener to try it out and the lady actually let me try it out right there and then! You apply this over spots and it claims to fight the spot and also lightly conceal it at the same time. I haven't been able to full try this out yet, as touch wood i haven't had many breakouts recently, but the few times I did I was impressed, and felt it did reduce the redness and inflammation of the spot, so a thumbs up!
So to go with the offer, and keeping with the theme of skin care I picked up the Witch Blemish Stick, I wanted this because before this I didn't own anything to put directly on spots, and was forced to using watered down TCB (shame on me I know!) So far this is great, its doing the job and isn't burning half my skin off with it!
The last thing I picked up in boots was the St. Ives Blemish Fighting Scrub. Ive seen this on a few peoples blogs and was eager to give it a try, So far I'm liking it. I can't say I've seen any dramatic changes to my skin from this, but I feel like its not hurting my skin either, and that it is exfoliating it well, which is what I want from a scrub. Also it smells edible! Apricot is a particular favourite of mine!
Last issue was my legs! During they winter they tend to get slightly neglected (Seeing as nobody see's them) I've always quite dry skin on my legs and they definitely needed a quick pick me up. I grabbed the Garnier Intensive 7 Days Nourishing Lotion while I was in Sainsbury's about a week ago and I laaaaav it! For as long as I can remember I've been using Palmers Cocoa Butter but I thought I would try something new! Although this is Cocoa Butter, it smells completely different, in a good new refreshing way, and its done wonders to my skin!
Sorry for the long rambly post!
