First of all, I hope you had a lovely Christmas :-)
Apologies for my lack of blogging! However, I'm sure that you will be pleased to hear that in my absence I have found the 'skin saviour', well its seriously worked wonders for me anyway. Since I first purchased the Super Facialist by Una Brennan Rose Hydrate Calming Creamy Cleanser - what a mouthful! (you can find my review here), I have been obsessed with this range! In my opinion they perform incredibly for their price - which is quite reasonable even without the frequent discount that Boots seems to do on the Super Facialist range. I have since purchased quite a few more products...opps! but I have been extremely impressed with them all, particularly the Tea Flower Deep Clean Purifying Cleansing Wash. If you have read my earlier posts then you will be aware of my crazy skin problems. To fill you in quickly - I developed mild acne, which I've never suffered from before. It wasn't just the spots that were frustrating me, it was also how terrible my skin looked when I tired to apply makeup to cover them. My face looked very 'bumpy' and the more products I used to try shift it, the worse my skin seemed to get.
The Tea Flower Cleanser changed all this, after starting to use it I could see a dramatic difference in about 1/2 weeks, if that. I decided to purchase this cleanser as although I really like the creamy cleanser, it isn't targeted at blemish prone skin and it also contains shea butter (which apparently isn't great for blemishes, especially when trying to clear up acne). I would recommend it as a potential morning cleanser, but at night I personally prefer something that is hopefully helping to eliminate the chances of any further breakouts. The tea flower cleanser is perfect for this job as it contains salicylic acid however, it is not too over powering and after at least a month of use, I can honestly say that it hasn't dried out my skin at all. I'm really impressed as not only do I have sensitive skin, but in addition to using this cleanser I also use the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo and the Duac Once Daily Gel (Review here) which aren't the most moisturising partners in crime! This cleanser has really cleared up my spots and minimised the 'bumpy' look of my skin. I've even been reaching for a tinted moisturiser rather than foundation which I haven't been able to do in months. Yes its worked that well. If your having your own skin nightmare then I really recommend trying this cleanser out (FYI: I also make sure that I double cleanse on the days when I'm wearing makeup).
Do you have a 'skin saviour' product?
