So I might have discovered super affordable skincare products that actually work and I never even thought something like that existed?! Or not for my skin anyway.
If you have really oily or dry skin then I don’t know if these products will work for you but for those who have combination skin like myself and who struggle with a bit of acne, this post might actually be worth reading! (all the other ones as well of course)
I have tried soooo many different skincare products from different brands in all price ranges to try and reduce my spots and rednesses. A lot of them worked in a way that, it took care of my skin and kept it hydrated but it never REALLY did anything, if that makes sense.
I love Bodyshop products and I love that they have so many different choices in each product they bring out, especially the body mists. However, even though I heard positive reviews about their skincare I never really decided to try it. For some reason I thought that for skincare to work, it has to be expensive. This is far from the truth but a product that is only £8.50 which removes every spot just sounds too good to be true.
I went into the Bodyshop weeks ago to pick up the Vitamin E cream when one of their employees stopped me and said: “that product is not going to work for you”. She looked at my skin and said that she worked in skincare for 20 years now and recommended the tea tree products.
Every night and morning I first use the tea tree 3-in-1 wash product, which can be used as a scrub or mask as well but I just like to use it to wash my face. I put this onto my skin and take it off using a muslin cloth. (these can be purchased at different places, I personally love the Liz Earle ones) After those steps I like to use the Garnier micellar water to ensure that there is no make up left on my face. Then I use a few drops of the Bodyshop’s tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution, this product will last you for such a long time as you will only need the tiniest amount to cover your face and neck. Finally I use the seaweed cream from the Bodyshop as well to moisturise my skin. This is a really good range to use in combination with the tea tree products.
Taking care of your skin is so important and please don’t be put off by some ridiculous prices of well-known brands, it doesn’t have to be expensive for it to work. Just do a lot of research on products before you buy them and have someone take a look at your skin to tell you what type you have. This makes buying the right products a lot easier!
