Evening everyone!! I am so sorry i haven't blogged in ages! Work has taken over my life, again!! I actually thought it was going to get quieter towards Christmas but instead it's so much busier! Anyway, i wanted to talk about the L'Oreal Skin Perfection range and how i got on with it. A couple of months ago I was shopping at my local supermarket and decided to explore the beauty aisle.
There was 1/3 off L'Oreal skincare and the Skin Perfection range caught my eye and ended up picking up a few bits in the hope of finding a drugstore product that can help even out skin.
Here is a little background information about my skin. I have a combination skin type with very little dryness and quite an oily t-zone. I don't have sensitive skin, but i do get hormonal breakouts, as well as getting spots when I'm tired, stressed, or eating crappy food.
The L'Oreal Skin Perfection Advanced Correcting Serum and Day Moisturizer helps transform the appearance of skin quality, minimise the pores, tone the skin and boost the skins hydration.
At first when i used all these products combined, my skin felt amazing! My face felt much smoother, softer and radiant. I loved the feeling of using the day cream, as i felt it was the right consistency for my combination skin....it wasn't too light or too heavy. My makeup went on beautifully and i found that my skin appeared a lot more even.
However, i noticed after a very short period of using the Skin Perfection products, that i was continuously getting breakouts. I know i always get breakouts around my time of the month, but for the last couple of months, i have had spots on my face pretty much every single day. There were only a few days where i didn't have any breakouts and i couldn't put my finger on what it was.
Last month i stopped using the entire range completely and i am very happy to say since i haven't been using the products, my skin has cleared up so much and there has been very little breakouts.
I have been trying to figure out what ingredients were in these products that caused my skin to erupt and i haven't been able to narrow it down unfortunately!
All i can say is I'm extremely disappointed that this didn't agree with my skin, as i honestly wanted to find a drugstore product that would help to even out the skin tone. I think i am going to stick to products that I KNOW work fine on my skin and products that i have been using for years, as they still deliver good results.
Have you used anything from the Skin Perfection range?
