Skin care routine..

Hey Sweeties! 
Ever since I became a teenager I've had one constant problem, spots/acne
I've tried many products and even anti-biotics to help clear them or just to control them.
Last year I went into boots when I seen one of their numerous offers, this one was for face wipes to be more specific Clean & Clear.

First things first in the morning I just wash my face with dove soap and water.
Then when I'm getting ready I use;
Clean & Clear Deep Cleansing Lotion:
"For sensitive skin. Cleanses your skin gently but effectively to remove everyday build-up of oil, dirt and grease [..] It can also be used to refresh, tone and tighten pores after washing."
It does exactly that, which is great as I naturally have oily skin. 
You really do feel your skin tighten. The cotton pads are Primark's own make, why get expensive ones when they all do the same job.
Once I'm all ready I always put my make-up on last. 

Clean & Clear Deep Action Facial Wipes:
When I come in from Uni/Work and I know I'm not going out again I use these to remove my make-up.
"Cleans deep down to effectively remove dirt, oil and make up in one quick, easy step."
Once again, it does exactly that and afterwards you can feel your face tingle it's an odd but nice sensation.
Then I cleanse my face with the lotion above. 

Once I've done that I apply;
Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion:
"Increases moisture instantly, then fills the gaps in skin to lock moisture in all day, promoting the proper environment dry skin needs to repair itself"
And what do you know? It does exactly that, what a surprise :)
Even though I naturally have oily skin, after I've wiped and cleansed my skin it tends to feel dry so I finish off with this. 

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures from before I started using the cleansing lotion but I do have after photos. It's roughly 2-3 weeks since I've started to used the product. My friends and family have even noticed a difference. I still do get spots but not frequently as before.
As you can see I just have blemishes and scars left.
Thankfully girls, I have a great foundation =)
Over all, I fully recommend all of these products to anyone with acne/spot problems.
Do you have any miracle products?

With Love,

  1. I use Proactiv, only thing that clears my skin, I used to have such gross skin, even with using different skin care. But now it's sooo much clear and dewy looking.

    1. A lot of people did recommend that but for some reason I never bought it. I'd love to have dewy skin :)

  2. I use the cleansing lotion and find it really works! x

  3. I used every skincare product ever & finally bought a clarisonic Mia and I've never looked back!pleased for you your skins improving though :) nothing better than having clearer skin xx

    1. I really wanted one but the price is unfortunately out of range for me. Thanks same for you! I know you just feel so much better with yourself.

  4. I found that when I was a teen Clean & Clear always did the job, thankfully my skin is not just redness prone!

  5. I had a massive problem with acne as a teen expect it was on my upper back! Completely sucked haha! I used Phisohex to clear mine up :-)

    1. Wow, I've never heard of that before. I bet it did. Glad it worked for you :D

  6. I had such terrible problems with my skin a few years ago, but I went on the pill and that mainly sorted it out, except then i had dry skin!
    I used a moisturising cleaser and a more harsh toner to sort that out :)
    great post!
