First of all I would like to apologize for my lack of activity this week, I am up to my eyes in school work and revision (and will be for a while to come) so it feels like I've not even had time to sit down, let alone blog! But, saying all that, I have a review for you of a product which has been a huge help to me lately.
As I'm sure I have mentioned plenty of times, I suffer from really blemish prone skin, mainly bought on by hormones and stress; it honestly makes a huge difference to my mood depending on how my skin is behaving, so I have tried my fair-share of spot treatments, and finally, I have found one that really works for me!
Say hello to Vichy's Normaderm Hyaluspot, a clear gel product that I apply after washing my face beofre hoping into bed. It is packed full of spot fighting ingredients like hyaluronic acid and antibacterial salicylic acid + LH, which I feel have been really helping. It's billed as being `invisible` however it is noticeable on the skin, but I must say this isn't an issue for me considering I am just going to bed. The scent reminds me of green tea for some reason, I have no idea if that has any basis, but it does! I like the applicator as well- it applies just the right amount of product and seems perfectly hygienic. I find it gives a slightly uncomforable tingly sensation after it's applied, but it's nothing I can't take- and I am prepared to live with that because of the benefits!
So basically, the reason I'm so fired up by this product is that when I wake up, the blemishes I have applied it to are noticeably smaller, less red and less painful- even from the first use! After using this a few nights in a row, they will have totally gone. I have found it most effective on spots that are about to come up, in a sense `nipping them in the bud`. My only criticism is that it leaves the skin around the spot super dry, I have found my concealer clinging (never a good look) to these patches, but i have found using a moisturizer and actually skipping concealer fixes the problem. This costs £10.50, pricier than some treatments but still noticeably cheaper than the likes of Origins- and worth every penny!
I hope this review was helpful- it's fab to find a product that really lives up to it's claims!
