Better later than never, I jumped on the skin care addict band wagon!
I finally got to realise I’m not a teenager anymore hence my skin is not one of a teenager anymore… Said goodbye to my oily-ish and (not overly spotty – luckily!) skin, at the age of 24 my skin has settled to a normal skin with the odd dry patches around nose and chin, and slightly oily nose.
Despite these noticed changes in my skin, I kept buying anti-acne and products for oily skin causing a never-leaving redness all over my face, especially cheeks.
This redness had been bugging me for a long time, but it never occured to me that I wasn’t taking care of my skin properly. The epiphany then came when I started doing some researches on blogs and the old trusted YouTube, that I came to the conclusion that I had to let go my Normaderm products for something more suitable.
First thing to address on my SkinCare to Do list: get rid of my redness.
On my last trip to Boots I treated my self with La Roche-Posay – Rosaliac UV Legere, an anti-redness moisturiser.
In the old days, never would I have thought I’d spent 15£ on a cream, but as Caroline Hirons says (THE skin care Goddess for those of you having a Cher-like: Whooo!?! moment right now) “You only get one face, so why mess with it?!” Hence, the aforementioned purchase.
I knew La Roche-Posay products were darn good, but honestly, this one exceeded all my expectations.
I’ve been known to be quite a difficult person to impress, but just after 2 application in the morning, my redness was reduced, no joke, at least of 50%!
Needless to say, I love it! Its unfragranced, paraben-free, absorbs quickly and has an SPF 15, so its perfect as a make up base. What else could you want?
Next up on my wish list, Elizabeth Arden Cleansing Balm, but that would have to wait, rents in London are not famous to be cheap.
In the mean time, I’ll get out my Moleskine, and lengthen my SkinCare Wishlist: Caroline, I’m listening!
