I cleared my skin with two products.


My skincare regime changed drastically this year, from the last time I wrote about skin care!

If any of you have read my previous posts, you'll know that I have acne prone skin.

I've been taking medication for my skin for years now, but this year, I had to take a break because of other skin issues.

I found two products, that HUGELY cleared my skin.. & here they are.



A lot of you will know this product, it's pretty hyped about. I was at the point where I had tried everything, and had given up with over the counter products.

But then I bought this. I don't know what made me buy it.. but I did.

You have to make sure that the pink liquid is separated from the clear, and you have to place the pink stuff over the blemish. The first time I used this, I noticed a difference in the size of spots. They were instantly 'dried' out.

This stuff works AMAZINGLY on small pimples, but takes a few days on large ones, but still works on them!


& the second product..


This Sunday Riley UFO oil changed my life. Honestly.

I've never used anything that has actually made me wake up feeling smooth and less oily.

If your acne is caused by oily skin (the majority of acne) this will work. By that I mean, if you're oily after 3 hours on a day, or wake up with oily skin.. get this. I don't think this will work on people who get occasional pimples due to hormones, stress, etc. 

When I first used this, I woke up thinking my skin was weirdly clean.. and it's because it VISIBLY reduced the amount of oil my skin produced. Not only did it reduce the oil on my face, it improved the texture of my skin.. my skin is so so smooth.

It sounds weird that oil works on oily skin, but I've read in many articles that it is very important to incorporate oil into your skin care routine when you have oily skin, as it can trick your skin into not producing oil, as it's already oily. Get it? This product definitely does that!

I use this every other day, and I've been using it for nearly 4 months now, and it looks like it's hardly been used, because you don't need a lot of this stuff! The price of this product (£68) is worth it, because I feel like it will last me more than a year, easily.

The trick is to not use it everyday, and when you do use it, don't overload your face with the oil.. put enough in so it can be massaged into the skin.

A lot of people complain about the smell of this product.. but if a product works well, I don't mind if it smells a bit funny. The smell isn't anything drastic, and it's definitely not as bad as some reviews make it out to be!

I use it at night - a lot of people use it before applying make up, but I don't want to do that lol.

I still have spots, because that's just the type of person I am.. but these two products have given me so much confidence, and improved my skin massively. I finally feel like I'm in control of my face. Ha.
