Is Sebamed Clear Face skincare the answer for acne?

Is Sebamed Clear Face skincare the answer for acne?

I’d never heard of Sebamed when I was approached by them to see if I would try out some of their products. Their Clear Face collection is a range of products developed for acne prone skin, it reminds me of the sort of thing I would have used back when I was a teenager when there seemed to be loads of this sort of thing around (anyone remember Biactol!?). I was sent a Sebamed Clear Face 3-step skincare regime to try, consisting of Cleansing Bar, Deep Cleansing Facial Toner and Care Gel and I was asked to use them for a month to see what effect they had on my skin. I have combination skin with an oily chin and nose, and I am very prone to spots particularly on my chin, along my jawline and just under my cheekbones. The Clear Face range has been developed to restore skin’s pH level to 5.5 – that of a healthy skin. Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Bar – I just LOVE a...

Gamila Secret – Cleansing Bar

Gamila Secret – Cleansing Bar

This Cleansing Bar from Gamila Secret is possibly my favourite ever thing that has arrived in my Glossybox! It is a cute little 30g 100% natural bar that cleanses the skin whilst hydrating and encouraging the skin’s capacity for self-repair.

I love to use a cleansing bar in the morning as it’s so easy to do and then you can rinse your face with water and there’s no need for toners etc. To use, just run the bar under running warm water and then massage the lather into your skin, just like you would...

Tony Moly – Petite Bunny Gloss Bar in Juicy Strawberry

Tony Moly – Petite Bunny Gloss Bar in Juicy Strawberry

First of all, big thanks to Fee from fab blog Makeup Savvy who first brought this cute Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar to my attention in her ‘May Favourites’ post. I had never heard of Tony Moly before this, but as soon as I saw this I had to order one! Tony Moly is a Korean skincare and make-up brand, but their products are widely available in the UK via Ebay and other selected websites. Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar works like a regular lipstick whereby you twist the end and the gloss stick twists up ready to apply to your lips. Juicy Strawberry is a lovely translucent pink lip gloss, very glossy and shiny with a great tint. It feels really moisturising and also has a nice juicy strawberry fragrance. The 2 swatch images below have been taken both with and without a camera flash. The image with the flash shows just how glossy this lip product is. The lid has a cute bunny face and...
