Skincare Saviours for Blemishes

Heey :)
So seeing as my last post was about my haircare saviour, I thought I would do one for skincare too since I have found some awesome things to help my skin be its best! I have oily skin and so battling against blemishes has been no stranger to me.  On to the recommendations.... :)




1) Clinique acne solutions all-over clearing treatment. (£18.50 by itself, I got mine with the 3 step Acne Kit).
This product has got to be one of my favourite moisturisers (Clinique in general just nail it when it come to moisturisers!). It honestly feels like a second skin when you apply it, which is awesome because it feels like it's not even there because it is so light and it's not greasy. I have had this product for around 8 months and I use it sparingly when I feel like my skin needs some help overnight and it honestly helps to control the problem. Let's just say I should probably buy another one since this one is on the verge of being finished - I think that's the best indicator to know if something has worked well :)

2) Michael Todd True Organics - Kaolin Clay Detoxifying Facial Mask. ($34.00).
I heard a lot of YouTubers raving about Michael Todd and so I thought I would try one of their regimen kits for oily/acne prone skin, although I wasn't that amazed by the whole kit, I really do love this mask. I use it once a week and my skin feels so clean and just so soft after. I also use it as a overnight spot treatment and it works because it dries the area so my blemish is visibly reduced by the next day. I only do this for one night because it is more of a short term solution than a long term one. The only downfall is that this product smells weird, I didn't like the smell when I first got it but now it reminds me a bit of Dettol :P

3) The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash (£5.00).
There is going to be a reoccurring theme in the next three products since they all contain Tea Tree :) This product is a new find for me, I purchased it when my skin was freaking out and within three days I noticed a difference in my skin. Tea Tree is awesome for calming down skin and because it's a face wash, you know that just by using this product twice a day you are doing something so simple to prevent future breakouts. The bottle is quite big too and so you are definitely getting your moneys worth with this product.

4) Lush - Tea Tree Water Toner Water (£3.95).
This is also a new find for me, I wanted a toner which would help my skin as well as tone it. I use the L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purify Micellar Solution to take off my make up before washing my face and then use the facial wash I mentioned above. However I didn't want to use the L'Oreal one to tone my face after as I felt that it would take away the Tea Tree I had just put on my face and so that's why I bought this product. I do really like this product as it is helping my skin in the way that I intended it too. I mentioned at the start that I have oily skin and I think Tea Tree in general dries my skin out which is an aspect that I reeeally like :) The bottle is really cute and the fact they do two sizes means that you can try it without committing to it. 

5) Witch Cleansing and Toning Wipes (£2.99).
I discovered this product when I went to Amsterdam last August, doing good skincare while travelling is pretty hard and so this product claimed to cleanse and tone and so I was immediately drawn in. I have never tried Witch products but mannnn this stuff is so good I can't even express it properly. I used this for 6 days straight in Amsterdam and my skin didn't break out once - my skin was perfect, it's crazy I know. I always keep myself topped up with this product because honestly it is that amazing, I use this occasionally to help my skin. I also use this on lazy days because I know it will work wonders on my skin which to me is a win-win situation. I feel like no other brand will impress me as much as this one product has done. Seriously - buy it. :P

That's it for now with my skincare saviours, I'm sure there will be a whole lot more in the future :) Comment below telling me what your skincare saviours are, and what you can't live without :)
Thanks for reading,
