Bye bye my loved ones!
In with the new!
The moisturiser my husband uses is by Neutrogena and is the oil free version. I actually purchased it for myself about 3 months ago, used it once and that was that.
Why oil free? Well, up until 2 years ago I never EVER got spots, when I did I started wearing foundation which made it worse. My skin without makeup is normal, however when I wear make up I get a oily t-zone, therefore oil free products without any spot fighting ingredients is great for me, as I don't want my skin to get used to salicylic acid.
I got the oil free face wash and make up remover to match, they are currently on offer for 3 for 2 at Boots. The moisturiser is actually very moisturising and the face wash lathers up nicely. The make up remover is nice but I still feel like I need a eye makeup remover when I wear a lot of make up.
I have wanted to try the Clarisonic but can not justify the price, I got this face brush from the Botanics range at Boots, it's really soft and in my opinion does the same thing. It works really well with the face wash...
I am currently using the Garnier grape water eye makeup remover which I have repurchased a few times, it's gentle and effective.
My overflowing skin care box is now filled with what I need. It actually feels quite liberating.
Sometimes you have to put your faith in to science (in my case Neutrogena) as natural isn't always best.
From now on....
- I will stick to this regimen for 2 months solid even if my skin goes bananas.
- I will not pick and squeeze at my spots even if they are shouting at me!
My advice? Stick to what works for you and don't experiment!
