Oops, my September favourites is slightly late. I haven’t been well and have just started to feel a little human again so am really excited to share with you what I have been loving during the month of September. I can certainly say, I will be using these products for a while as I am totally addicted and have all made their way into my daily beauty routine. So, let’s get started : )
Dr Nick Lowe – Cooling Menthol Facial Scrub – Anti Age
I am completely obsessed with Dr Nick Lowe’s facial cleanser, so much so that I decided to invest in some of his other skincare products and boy am I glad I did. The first one being this menthol based facial scrub which is heaven in a tube. The product claims to “reveal a softer, brighter and more radiant complexion using gentle spherical micro beads to smooth the skin, purify pores and stimulate cell renewal.” It is advised on the packaging that this facial scrub should be used weekly, however can be used as required. This scrub is perfect for when your skin feels dull, clogged up and perhaps a little congested. After one use of this scrub, it certainly lives up to what it claims to do. Your face immediately glows, pores appear smaller and it sheds all those horrid dead skins cells which give you that clogged up/congested feeling. My complexion was definitely brighter, smoother, clearer and revitalised. In my view, this scrub is excellent and reasonably priced!
I am always searching for the perfect face cleanser and I think I have found the one..finally! It’s like finding the perfect man, nearly impossible ; )
As I am the kind of girl who does wear makeup every day, as much as I like to wear it, I also cannot wait to take it off when I get home from work. There is nothing like the feeling of freshly cleansed skin after a hard day at work and this cleanser certainly gives you that feeling.
Dr Nick Lowe Sebum Control Cleanser is dermatologically tested and alcohol free. It allows you to deeply cleanse your pores without stripping your skin of vital moisture. This is key, especially with sensitive and acne prone skin, just like mine.
Dr Nick Lowe has a range of amazing skin care products which have been tested over 30 years to treat many skin issues. One being acne, blemish prone skin which is what this cleanser is specifically made for.
There are a lot of cleansers out there made specifically for acne prone skin, but I find them too drying and too harsh which defeats the purpose of using a specialist skin care product. After researching Dr Nick Lowe’s products, I was extremely excited but at the same time a little dubious, given I have tried so many skin care products I just haven’t been happy with. But, for the first time ever, I absolutely love cleansing my skin and removing my makeup. It completely removes all traces of makeup which I have found difficult with other products. My skin feels so clean, fresh, smooth and not dry at all. I cannot explain how amazing this cleanser is and how perfect my skin feels after.
There have been times when I have used cleansers before using this cleanser and my skin just hasn’t felt 100% clean but, with Dr Nick Lowe’s Sebum Control Cleanser, I honestly can say it does. I have also noticed my break outs have significantly reduced since using this product. Happy days!
Have you tried the Dr Nick Lowe Sebum Control Cleanser and what do you think of it? Or are there any other acne prone skin care products you cannot live without? I’ll see you soon. X.O
