REVIEW OF SUPERDRUG VITAMIN E HYDRATING MIST - REFRESHING TONING MIST ESSENCE

 

Superdrug Vitamin E Hydrating Mist 


Hello, thanks very much for reading my review of the Superdrug Vitamin E Hydrating Mist. I truly appreciate it.

Let's get in to it. I have been looking for a mist or an essence (as some people refer to it) to add to my skincare routine as a way of helping my skin to retain more moisture and to help achieve a glowy and dewy look (not the shinny look) after makeup application. A hydrating mist is also good for mature skin to help retain moisture and get back that dewyness and glow. Read More

Updated Skin Care Routine for the winter

Pears Oil Control Soap with Lemon Extract
As you well know from my previous post on my skincare routine See Here, I use  both a cream cleanser  and a gel cleanser as part of my double cleansing regime. But I have noticed that this regime is currently  harsh for me, due the inclement UK winter. It stripped my skin and left it dry despite following this with a serum and moisturizer.Because of this, I decided I needed to tweak my skin cleansing routine. I decided I needed something Glycerin base, because Glycerin is a well known  humectant and would cause my skin to retain moisture.

Review of Superdrug's Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic -Dupe for Pixi Glow Tonic

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic


Hello there,

Today I am writing a review of Superdrug's Naturally radiant glycolic tonic with an active ingredient of 5% Glycolic acid.

I was first drawn to this product  because I was looking for something that had 5% Glycolic acid (Glycolic acid is well known for its exfoliating properties)  but one that did not have  hydrogenated castor oil,cult favourite  Pixi Glow Tonic has hydrogenated castor oil in its formulation.

Review of Fade-Out Anti wrinkle cream SPF25

Fade Out Cream


I recently started using this cream called Fade-Out Anti-Wrinkle Cream  to combat acne scarring and hyper-pigmentation.It comes in a 50ml tube and is white in colour .It contains Hyaluronic acid,Liquorice extract and Niacinamide which plumps and hydrates the skin.As an added bonus it has SPF 25. I bought it primarily to fade out old acne scars that I have and also to help with hyper-pigmentation. I have been using it for a month now and my skin is smoother and my acne scars do appear lighter.The cream does do what it says on the pack but do not expect results overnight.It works, but slowly.Apart from helping with acne scarring, it is also a very good day  moisturizer especially now during the winter months. It can be purchased in the UK at any Boots shop for £9.99 click  here Fade Out Cream for link.If you are looking for an effective night antiwrinkle cream click on my review of Lacura Q10 Anti Wrinkle Night Cream

Skin Care Routine using Clinique products under the Nigerian weather



My skin-care journey.I have very oily skin acne -prone skin and because of the incessant break-outs I have developed quite a lot of acne scaring over the years, but I have always covered this up with make-up specifically  Mac concealer  and Liquid foundation. (I find they do a very good job in covering up and giving a flawless look)

I have always wanted to clear the spots but  there are very limited options to clearing acne and dark spots without use of bleaching/toning creams. I did some research online on clearing hyper-pigmentation without using Hydroquinone/Mercury based products and saw some positive reviews about Clinique Even-Better-Clinical-Dark-Spot-Corrector and I said I will give it a go.

Clinique even better clinical dark spot corrector


I have always viewed Clinique as very high end which it is I know it is certainly not mainstream. But I thought I might as well give it a try. Retail price in the UK is  42 pounds for a 30ml bottle, for a 100ml bottle this cost 100 pounds click Here for link.

Next challenge can I get it  in Nigeria or do I have to buy and then pay cost of shipping to Nigeria. Then I remembered the Montaigne place at Ikeja city mall stock Clinique products.

Well I paid them a visit and bought a 30ml bottle for N25,000. The beauty rep suggested I also buy Clinique Anti-Blemish-Solutions-Clarifying-Lotion to complement this at a cost N5,000. This retails for 19 pounds for a 200ml bottle click Here for link for the product 

Clinique Anti Blemish Solution
 The rep was really helpful and emphasized the need to use a face cream with SPF 15 to achieve best results and that I should expect to see results in  at least six weeks of continuous usage.

I am to apply the spot corrector every  morning and evening (2-3 pumps) after cleansing with the anti-blemish lotion. So far after three days of use my skin is really a lot softer.

Well I have my fingers crossed with this I will give an update 6 weeks from now which will be mid-November on results.

Thanks for reading

XOXO
