Pore me out

Now despite being on the wrong side of mid twenties (a claim that has a rather short time span shall we say!) and heading towards preventing and banishing fine lines and the dreaded wrinkles (a dirty word I'm sure you'll agree). I am indeed blessed enough to continue experiencing all the 'joys' of teenage skin! It is prone to congestion, breakouts and the ever present oily t-zone. Oh and did I mention it's also a touch sensitive... Wow, now are you all envious?? Wanna be me?? :)

So finding the perfect skincare routine is something I'm yet to conquer, though boy have I tried! I've had great relationships with Dermalogica, Origins, Liz Earle, Espa and Simple but nothing that lasts. (my skin is a bit of a floozy and refuses to be tied down to one brand for any length of time!)

BUT NOW, I'm taking it oldskool and trying the Neutrogena visibly clear range. I'll be combining with Elemis pro collagen marine cream products cos a girls got to have a little bit of luxury hasn't she? Plus I need to keep both skin personalities happy, or else I might end up blemish free BUT the shrivelled opposite to smooth perfection! (Nightmare!) And we can't be rocking that look can we? Well i sure as hell can't ;)

Does anyone else have bipolar skin? Or any pearls of wisdom to share? Everything and anything welcomed...

Until my next post I'll be continuing my quest for the magic in a pot... maybe it will be at the bottom of a rainbow!

Thanks for reading xx

  5. My only really good tip is to keep gel formulas or toners in the fridge, it helps to calm down your skin, de puff, and it feels blummin' amazing!

  9. Oh how I feel your bipolar skin woes.. :)
    (many) Moons ago I remember being dedicated to the Neutrogena cause, but then stopped. I did love their range, but I think like with some brands, there just isn't one product that does EVERYTHING, you have to buy the whole 'range' to combat what mood your skin wakes up in!
    My current (for the last year) regime has been the daily essentials range from Liz Earle, with the hot cloth cleanser.. I love it. :)

  10. I have these products and I really like them, especially the blackhead scrub
    Great blog and brilliant posts. The only thing I would say is to make the photos a bit bigger as it's a little hard to see them :)
    Lots of Love Abi xxx

  12. Great post! :) I have a pretty oily T-Zoneand am prone to spots (I'm 27 so thought spots would be long gone by now) and am yet to find anything that controls the oil. I do find that the 2-in-1 wash/mask helps treat my breakouts though, amazing stuff

    1. It's wick isn't it, saying that oily skin gets less wrinkles (she says!) so fingers crossed we'll reap the benefits somewhere!
      I love mask, sometimes plaster it on over a break out and go to bed :)
