Clean and Clear Dual Action Oil Free Moisturiser- Ideal for Acne and Blemish prone skin

I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I suffer from occasional breakouts. My skin type is oily so I always look for oil free products. I wanted to find a spot fighting cream to help prevent future breakouts so my first choice was to try a Clearasil product. However, Clearasil is way to harsh on my skin. The cream I tried called Clearasil Rapid Action Treatment Cream, completely dried out and irritated my skin so I decided never to try products from the Clearasil range again.  This is not to say it will not work for others but I personally would not recommend it for sensitive skin. So I decided to try out a product from the Clean and Clear range instead so I bought the Clean and Clear Dual Action Oil Free Moisturiser.

All I can say is what a find! This is my absolute favourite moisturiser. Since using it I hardly break out and the appearance of my blemishes have significantly improved. It is fragrance free so is ideal for sensitive skin and when applied it feels completely lightweight. The texture is smooth and non greasy so works well under make up and my skin remains oil free for hours.
I’m really amazed that a cream this affordable (under £4) actually helps prevent spots appearing on skin but for me it actually works and I will not be switching to another moisturiser. You only need a little amount and the size is quite big (100ml) so lasts ages. So if like me you suffer from occasional spots then this is a must buy that I highly recommend!

Smashbox Studio Skin 15 hour wear Hydrating Foundation

I have always been nervous with regards to using liquid foundation for two reasons, one is the fact I have oily skin so it was a concern my skin would feel greasy and reason two was about finding a colour that matches, since Indian skin tones are hard to find shades for. However I heard about an oil free foundation from Smashbox so I decided to write about my experience using Smashbox Studio Skin 15 hour wear Hydrating Foundation.

I went in store to Boots and I was colour matched to shade 3.2. The product is quite expensive at £29.00 but the size of the bottle is quite good and you only need a pump or 2 which is enough for your whole face. I found the colour looked a little more yellow on my skin than I’d want ideally but it blended in better when I used less of the product for a lighter coverage. The texture is light and did not feel heavy on my skin and set on my skin with a matte finish. The oil control was excellent throughout the day and suited my sensitive and naturally oily skin. I’ve used a brush to apply the foundation before, however I’ve found it blended better when I used my fingers to apply it. I really like this product and I’m glad I tried it. It gives me long lasting coverage and my skin looks hydrated while still remaining oil free.
