The L'Oreal Skin Perfection Range Isn't Perfection.......

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 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?

  1. I've recently bought the L'Oreal skin perfection serum but still testing it, haven't had definitive results yet. It's a shame it didn't work for you, you should give The Body Shop Tea tree night lotion a go, I found this to even out skin tone and reduce blemishes.

  2. I never really find any decent low end skincare, would love to hear some of your picks if you knew some.

  3. I use this when my skin needs a boost of hydration as I find it extremely rich. I don't use this on a daily basis or include it apart of my skin regime. I do however like how it gives that instant smoothness

  4. Hmm not sure about buying this range now, best to stick to what you know and works best x

  5. Oh no that's a real pity! I was hoping to try these sometime but maybe I won't now. Although what suits one persons skin isn't going to be the same on anothers, but still I don't have money to spend on something that's just going to give me spots lol :) x

  6. No i don't. we don't even have this series over here in Germany. But I absolutely feel you. I also sometimes want to try out new creames , but it always ends up with breakouts. Therefore, i dont risk anymore and rather stick to the creams and stuff i absolutely know that they'll work for me :)

  7. I have similar skin to yours and this is a range I was thinking of trying so I'm glad I've read your review. I'm using the Neutrogena Visibly Clear range. It doesn't stop hormonal breakouts but does help to heal them quickly. I have been left with blemish marks and uneven skintone so wouldn't mind any budget friendly solutions. At the moment I'm thinking of investing in LancĂ´me Dreamtone. Have you tried this product?

  8. The first time I tried the serum,the same day it did irritate my skin!I tried it second time just to be sure and it cause the same effect!
