Mini Skincare Haul



Hey guys!
So I went shopping yesterday and bought a couple of bits for my skin. I have suddenly been overcome with horrible bumpy spots on one side of my face beside my chin, horrible.
I think it was the moisurizer from Nivea I was using that broke me out, and let me tell you not many things break me out nowadays (give or take)
I decided to get a couple of bits for my skin, all for different uses. Just for info I have dry/combo skin.

I bought the La Roche Posey Effaclar Duo+ just because it was hyped up so much. Till yesterday I didn't even know what it was used for. *blogger slap*. I read the description on the side of the box, and to my gratitude is seems to be for spots, redness, scaring. Perfect!
I did have second thoughts an hour after picking it up (because of the price, and the fact it mentioned oily skin) I tried to return it, but the shop assistant in Boots wouldn't let me because it was a skin care. product,

Also from Boots I picked up the Clarins Liquid Bronze Face Tan. This was just on the recommendation from Viviannadoesmakeup. I hate waking up in the morning with a ghostly complexion, I like to wake up with a little bit of a glow so that I don't have to run towards my foundation before answering the door etc. This is meant to be really natural, and I have seen it's like a cream texture which isn't too bad for my dry skin.

I then ventured out to Body Shop (after taking a sneaky peek into Topshop & River Island) and bought two products from their vitamin E collection. I bought the Vitamin E Face Mist to spray on after i've applied my foundation. I hate those days when my skin isn't behaving, and decides to go flaky and dry, even when I put tones of moisturizer before the foundation. This spray is meant to refresh makeup during the day, can't wait to try this out!
I also picked up the Vitamin E Moisture Cream. I obviously bought this because I can't use my current moisturizer because of it's spot causing properties. I hope this will be my go to moisturizer. Wish me luck!

So yea they're a couple of things I picked up for my skin, I may do reviews on them individually if I REALLY like/hate them.
Have you tried any of these products?
What's your favourite face product??

  1. I recently tried the Body Shop Vitamin E Moisturiser and it caused an awful reaction on my skin, even though I've never had a reaction from a skin product before. Nivea moisturiser is my go to though!

  7. i hope you get better results from the effaclar than i did :) i bought it, looking for a solution to all the little bumps i get on my chin. it does work, but its a very gradual process. not something for fast results.

  9. I haven't tried any of these but they look like wonderful choices. To be honest I must get better with my skin care; I never really venture out and try anything different & I really want to :-)

    The face mist sounds so refreshing! The moisturiser I use contains Vitamin E & I really love the gentle, soothing sensation of it on my skin!
