I have finally found a skincare regime that has been helping my skin look awesome! I've been feeling much better about my spots and therefore feeling more confident. Having a good skincare regime can (let me be dramatic) change your life.
I got this cleanser in the Priceline Skincare Goodie Bag and I wasn't too sure about how I'd feel about it. I use it to take off my makeup so I do skip this step every now and then if I hadn't worn make up that day. I find it a little drying if i use it normally but as a makeup remover it breaks everything down really well. Also if I have any spots on my shoulders or back I'll use this to help get rid of them.
This, I'm in love with. It smells so good, it's gently exfoliating, isn't drying and I reviewed it here.
Tea tree is a natural antibacterial and it seriously helps with reducing spots and keeping your skin nice and bacteria free. I have noticed a difference since I started using this and I do recommend if you have spotty skin. It's not drying at all which I was worried about when I first started using it.
I don't always use a lip scrub as I can get a little lazy but I try to use it regularly and although this was a Christmas edition, the other lip scrubs from Lush are pretty similar. It is basically just the scent that changes but I reviewed this one here. They leave you with soft, dry skin free lips. Lovely.
Full of grace is a serum that I started using as a moisturiser a little while ago. I love the way this feels and it sinks into the skin relatively quick. I haven't absolutely fallen in love with this, but it's working with the routine I'm in at the moment. It's meant to calm sensitive skin so it works pretty well I think with my spots.
I couldn't find the same eye cream online so I linked another one by the same brand. This eye cream has absolutely helped with my dark circles. It helps my eyes look much more awake and I've definitely noticed a difference.
Last but not least, the Macadamia oil is my favourite and least favourite step. It's probably my new favourite product in terms of results but it does sit on the skin for quite a while. This means your left with a very oily feeling for about 30 to 60min after applying. It depends on how dry your skin is how fast it sinks in. From what I can gather about how the macadamia oil works is that it hydrates the lipids in your skin which makes your skin appear plumper and smoother and it also helps keep moisture in. I apply this by patting onto my face as I don't want to disturb the serum and eye cream. Of course this makes it take a little longer to absorb but I find I get better results.
So that's it! Sometimes I do skip a step or two depending on how my skin is feeling. I do skip the macadamia oil if I feel my skin is a little oiler than normal. I've found that my skin is softer, my spots heal faster and appear less often. I have hormonal spots so I find it difficult to make them go away completely but this new routine has definitely helped.
