Skin Care Wish List featuring La Roche-Posay, Ginvera & Estee Lauder

Skin Care Wish List featuring La Roche-Posay, Ginvera, Estee Lauder

My skin struggles are constantly documented on my blog, readers will already know, I suffer from acne and I will try anything to combat it.

Here are 3 products I'm dying to try, all have fantastic reviews claiming to help oily skin and acne.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar K

This product claims to 'gradually exfoliate the skin's texture to reduce pores and to regain a smooth and clear complexion.' I have already tried out both Effaclar Duo and Mat from La Roche-Posay, both of which I love but I'm looking towards more recovering my skin from scars and spots with this product, when I get round to purchasing it. I think I'll wait till it's on offer in Boots, few months ago they did 2 for £13 on La Roche-Posay, fingers crossed they do it again soon.

Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel

I first heard about this through Danniella at Beauty in Japan, she raved about it but also told me you can try out a 10g sample from Janiro for just £2. As the gel costs around £22, I'm giving the sample ago before committing. From what I've read from reviews online, this product gently exfoliates the dead skin cells off, perfect for oily and acne prone skins.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup raves about his expensive product, she claims it helps repair the skin over night and leaves it baby soft by morning. I think I'll wait till Christmas to ask for this as a present as it's a little too expensive for my student budget. 

The recurring theme of this wish list is recovery. My skin is so spotty at the moment, tackling that is my first step and hopefully buying some of these products will help to renew the skin and fade scars. I'll just have to wait until pay day!

No7 Stay Precise Liquid Liner

No7 Stay Precise Liquid Liner

I'm a lover of liquid eyeliner, I feel naked without it. I've been mourning the loss of L'Oreal Carbon Gloss, my all time favourite liner, as it has been discontinued. While No7 had the £5 off vouchers, I decided to try the No7 Stay Precise Liquid Liner to see how it compared.

My first dislike with the product is the brush, the little bristles often splay out and you end up with eyeliner everywhere! It's quite a thick formula so this combined with a silly brush makes this really hard to get a nice neat line.

The packaging isn't that appealing either, the length of the wand is a little too long which makes it hard to lay down colour, you need concentration and a steady hand.

Deep black, not greyish like some other liners
Non irritating to the eye

The brush makes it difficult to use
Length of the wand makes it hard to use also
Doesn't dry that fast
Thick formula

I really don't recommend this liquid liner, even with the £5 off voucher. I think I'll try out 17's Wet Look Lacquer eyeliner next to see if that can live up to L'Oreal's Carbon Gloss.

Have you tried No7 Stay Precise Liquid Liner? What's your favourite liner?

Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean Review

Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean

I've always been a lover of Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish, believing that nothing else could compare. I'm also worried of switching products as my skin is so temperamental. Soap and Glory's Peaches and Clean is raved about by Miss Budget Beauty, who is one of my favourite bloggers/vbloggers, so I gave it a go.

So what do I think about Peaches and Clean? I love it... okay it wasn't love at first sight but I've grown to love it just as much as Cleanse and Polish.

I first gave this a test when my skin was kicking up a fuss, but I thought it was just making it worse. I picked this up a few weeks ago, hoping now my skin had settled I could try it again. I loved it this time, if anything it's helped prevent my skin from getting worse and spotty again.

The smell is not for everyone, as it says on the tin, it smells of peaches, but in a sickly sweet way. Give it a sniff before you commit to buying it.

Helped prevent spots (this may not be the case for your skin, give it a try)
Cheap, £8
Available in Boots, sometimes on offer like 3 for 2.
Cleans skin well.
Nice texture, quite creamy.

The smell is a little sickly

I can forgive the sweet smell because overall Peaches and Clean is a wonderful cleanser!

What do you think of Peaches and Clean?
