Current Skin Saviours


We all have a selection of wonder products we turn to when we're having a 'bad skin day'. 

I have two. Two saviour products that help my skin out when it needs it the most. Surprisingly my recent choices are purse friendly and i've become obsessed with them. My picks are both harsh and soothing, making them the perfect pair for troublesome skin.  It's so important to find products that really work for you, products that not only compliment your skin but also each other. 

The winter can be a deal breaker for your face,  being both cold and drying. For me, I still need to reach for products that pack a punch in the oil banishing department, because no matter the season, my t-zone remains as oily as ever. This means that I need to counteract the tough with the gentle. Which brings me onto my favourites for this time of year. 

QUICK FIX FACIALS CALMING CLAY MASK

This mask has become quite hard to get a hold of, Boots having now discontinued it. I did however find it here at Tesco, so I decided I would go ahead and review it anyway as I have only recently fell in love with it. Packed with calming ingredients such as Oatmeal, Aloe Vera and Camomile it claims to soothe, heal and reduce any redness and skin irritation that the harsh weather conditions may have caused. 

I find that this mask helps to sooth any blemishes that I have after just one use, drastically toning down any swelling and redness leaving my skin soft and comfortable. 

I must admit that I have read some particularly bad reviews about this product, claiming that it does not do what it says on the tin and hasn't soothed the skin at all. I however love it and find that it works really well with my skin type. My conclusion is that it probably isn't to be used if you have dry and super sensitive skin, but is the perfect companion to those with oily, blemish prone skin, as it works really well in conjunction with the drying products we may use to tackle breakouts. 


NIP AND FAB GLYCOLIC FIX NIGHT PADS EXTREME

Now these, are my favourites. The only negative is that I waited this long to try them.

These handy pads are saturated with Glycolic, Salicylic and Lactic Acid and are targeted at oily and congested skin. 

They exfoliate away dead skin revealing your clearest and brightest skin and oh boy do they work.  I reach for these every other night, usually after I have used the Quick Fix mask, wiping them gently over my face, avoiding the eye area. They make my skin feel so clean and instantly brighter and they are perfect to use before a facial oil. 

I found that these pads completely changed the texture of my skin, fighting away any pesky under the skin bumps and dry patches leaving it smooth and glowing. 

The handy tub and already soaked pads make for easy use and transport!
