Amazing, Lightweight Cc Cream For Redness

05 June 2014 - 09:52 AM

This stuff is lightweight, has a natural finish but best of all, is highly pigmented and covers redness and discolouration so well! I love it!

I dont usually buy high street foundations but thought I would give it a shot and I am so glad I did.

 

For £9.99 it's really reasonably priced and a little goes a long way. Would urge anyone with redness or general blemishes to try it!

 


Cured! Vitamin D3, Calcium & Magnesium

29 June 2013 - 01:40 AM

Hi,

I've suffered with acne for over ten years. Nothing has ever cleared it up for me- and I've tried everything except for accutane.

A couple of years ago, an endocrinologist suggested I go on vitamin d3 supplements for a deficiency. I was so deficient that I was prescribed 3 times the daily dose for 4 months and then twice the daily dose for the long term.

My skin miraculously cleared up for the first time ever, but as I have PCOS I put this down to a contraceptive pill finally working for me. When my vitamin d3 levels returned to normal I stopped the supplements altogether.

Within a year my acne started coming back with a vengeance and since it was after a miserable summer and horrible winter I guessed my vitamin d3 might be low again and started taking the supplements as before.

6 months later and I've stopped breaking out again. I just have the scars left to get rid of, but no active acne.

I have taken nothing else! Literally just vitamin d3! I introduced calcium & magnesium after reading that the three complement each other, but apart from that, it's just the vitamin d3 that I have to thank!

So, I'd urge you to try it, especially those who don't get much sun or have PCOS. These are common factors for a deficiency.

P.s- I have before and after photos- if anyone wants to see, message me. I can't work out how to post them from my iPhone!

Facial Oil For Scars/ Skin Reconditioning

Smoothing Pores- Garnier Perfect Blur (For Guys Too)

08 May 2013 - 02:55 PM

As a makeup junkie, I recently bought Garnier Perfect Blur, which is a new "perfecting primer" recently launched, following the success of Nanoblur.

I find it leaves a really smooth texture on top of the skin and I think it would probably be quite good for those who have large pores or ice pick scars. It can be worn under or over foundation, or even alone. It's silicone based (as far as I'm aware) and just leaves a really soft/ smooth finish. Obviously this wouldn't conceal large blemishes/ cystic acne etc but for pores I definitely think it could be a help. Especially for men, as it's colourless so pretty undetectable on the skin.

Someone on here once mentioned that if I recommend a product it could be because I have some sort of 'link' with the manufacturer- so I'd just like to confirm that I certainly don't and that this is just an opinion based on a product I've tried myself, and bought myself!

Serum Which Prevents And Fades Scarring.....

04 April 2013 - 01:26 AM

I've just written a post on my blog, with pictures, about what cleared up my acne (vitamin d) and the fact that I had NO scarring despite having quite severe acne at times.

I seriously think it has something to do with this product: Estée Lauder's Advanced Night Repair.

It is not cheap but if you research it online you will see it gets consistently amazing reviews and I honestly believe it prevented me from getting any permanent acne scarring or pigmentation.
