I’ve absolutely had it with my skin. I’m 37 and quite frankly fed up of the gaping pores emphasised by anthing other than polyfilla, I’m sick of the lumps and bumps and I’ve had it with the spots. ENOUGH.
A long time ago, before I started blogging I was a Decleor devotee. I swore by the range and loved it. Since blogging however, I’ve mostly stuck to Estee Lauder for it’s miraculous line reducing qualities and chopped and changed with other brands when I’ve been sent them for review purposes and I think my skin has had enough. So thinking back to the past and in consultation with the extremely knowledgable Caroline Hirons I’ve just started a new regime in the hopes of fixing my face.
I will be using the following:
Cleansers: Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser every evening and I have a sample sized bottle of Nuxe Cleansing water to get through but thats just for emergencies. I will always use a clean cloth and hot water from the tap, never from the bowl. My only problem with this is not having a mixer tap…ouch, it gets hot, but so far so good!
Moisturisers/oils: Decleor Aromessence Ylang Ylang and Aromessence Ylang Ylang Night Balm, both for combination and oily skin (although I am neither… I certainly lean that way rather than dry), Decleor Expression De L’Age Radiance Smoothing Cream, specially formulated for women in their 30′s.
Eye Care: Decleor Expression De L’Age Relaxing Eye Cream. Again specially formulated for women in their thirties.
Special Treat: Decleor Source D’Eclat – 10 Days Radiance Powder Cure. I’ll review this product separately after the given 10 days but this is a radiance booster with pure Vitamin C so we shall see!
Some of these items are PR samples and some of them I have bought myself. I have previously had the Alpha H Cleanser as a sample but finished it, this bottle I have bought myself. I have also purchased the Eye Cream and Moisturiser myself, whilst the other three Decleor products were PR Samples.
So what am I trying to fix? Well lets have a look! I am largely make up free in the following pictures, except for eye make up. There’s nothing else. There was tinted moisturiser first thing in the morning but this was about 10 hours later so nothing remained.
Doesn’t look bad here does it?
So what about this? You see I get spots around my lips, mouth and chin area and along my jawline are those bumps.. so many horrible little bumps… when I have make up on, it just looks like acne.
And this was supposed to show you my nose and its horribleness but erm.. it’s out of focus…
So thats that! I’ve already started with the cleanser and the Aromessences duo but am waiting for the moisturiser and eye cream to turn up and when they do I will start the 10 day radiance powder cure as well.
So I’ll see you 10 days after that point for a review of that product and an update and I suppose in about 4-6 weeks for a closer look at all the products and they are working out for me!
Wish me luck! And a huge thanks to Caroline for the advice. xx
