This one is all about the face. I decided that seeing as I’m now 30 (nope, still don’t believe it) I thought id better take more care of my skin as I dont really want to start looking old(er)
I only went in to boots to get one thing and came out with 4. But hey I got double points for the whole of September so why not.
The L’Oréal micellar solution I’ve already talked about here, I still love it and I cant afford any bioderma or la Roche posay but it works.
To go with the L’Oréal solution I bought this: L’Oreal Skin Perfection 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil. Geez thats a mouthful.
I’ve never used a cleansing oil before, I have no idea of the science behind it, but it seems to work. I’m only using this at night-time at the moment as I’m a bit too wary to use it in the mornings incase it leaves my skin looking oily. **EDIT: it doesn’t!** I haven’t broken out in spots like I thought I would either so yay! It says
The Miracle Cleansing Oil helps to re-balance the natural oil production, restoring optimum levels of hydration.

- Tested under dermatological and ophthalmological control
The next two I bought as I do have large pores and blackheads, damn skin, and occasionally get the odd spot. Saying that, one of these is for Paul, not me. I find that gel face washes leave my skin tight and dry so I prefer a creamy face wash and if it exfoliates, even better.
I chose this Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamins & Extract Scrub partly because of the clearasil name, partly because it was something silly like £2.50 or something. It says it contains “Vitamin E and Avocado extracts known for their skin nourishing properties, Pomegranate fruit extract, an anti-oxidant known to help keep skin looking healthy” It seems like it’s working, it doesn’t feel like its made a huge amount of difference to my face, more maintaining how my skin was anyway. But I will keep using it as I bought it and hate wasting things.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who goes into boots for 1 thing and comes out with 4
