I'm paraphrasing obviously...
So, last week I was pretty ill, and I don't know about you guys but whenever i'm ill my face kind of freaks out a little bit and irrupts in an explosion of spots and red blotches, and I every time I look in the mirror it looks like my 15 year old self has come out to play. Not exactly what a going-on 21 year old who's trying to be taken seriously in the work place wants to look like, am I right?
I've faced an endless battle with spots for years on end. There isn't a single picture of me in my teens where I don't have spots on my face! But finally, after smearing god knows what on my face I feel like i've found the one. We get on so well and I feel like the best of me has truly been brought out.
Let me introduce you to Liz Earle... More specifically, let me introduce you to the products which have been sent from the angels above to save my face!
The first being the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser.
You literally just smoosh it on your face, over your make up and everything (it gets a bit messy if you're not careful), then when you've rubbed it all in you rinse it off with a warm muslin cloth... That's it. Morning and night. So simple! Now it's not magic, it doesn't immediately get rid of your spots, but it takes the redness down, gets rid of any dry bits, and makes it so much easier to apply make up over the top because it leaves your face so smooth and soft. That's the brilliance of it, it gets rid of excess oil AND hydrates your face so that you just want to sit stroking your own cheeks. Which yes, I do do.
The second is the Deep Cleansing Mask.
I only use this once per week as an all over mask, because I find that if I use it too often my face becomes quite sensitive to it. But you leave it on for 5-15 minutes, let it go hard, then wash it off with one of the sponges that comes with it, and it leaves your face glowing! So smooth, less redness, it's just awesome.
I have a thing for having a smooth face okay...
Now, using these products, as well as my knowledge of cosmetic camouflage has made dealing with my spots so much easier! any tips and advice you might need, feel free to drop me a message on Twitter or on my Facebook page and i'll be more than happy to help!
Prepare yourself, the vain before and after selfie is about to happen!
