A new skincare regime!

I have a love/hate relationship with my skin, sometimes it is spot free and glowing and othertimes it can be dull and spotty! i'm 23 for crying out loud surely it shouldn't be acting like its 16 any longer?!?!?
So last week it started acting up and I decided to try a new defence to deal with it! A few months ago I tried Garnier Pure Active range but I was not impressed I didnt notice any difference in my skin at all, I didnt like the smell of it and overall it just didnt perform well!

So here is my top 3 skin heros that I have worshipped this past week and have noticed an overall lift in my skin :) spots that I felt were going to 'appear' in the morning have not shown, or not been as red or noticable as usual, overall my skin has felt clean and refresher and therefore clearer hurray!!

So firstly I picked up the Neutrogena Visible Clear 2 in 1 wash/mask, I have read good things on a few blogs about this which is why it caught my eye in Boots, I love the consistency of this, it is clay based so can be used as a 5 minute mask once a week, which I did a few nights ago, and every morning and night have been using it as a face wash. My skin feels so clean after using this I love it!

Secondly any spots that I had or could feel surfacing I put a little bit of this cream on the area, it is oxy 10 spot treatment, and I think that this really does work, You only need a small amount otherwise it can dry your skin too much, but if used straight away on spots then I can usually catch it quick and prevent it from getting any worse!

And lastly before bed everynight I have been slapping this gem of a pot on my face! Yes Sudocrem the skin saviour!! I say only use it before bed as it leaves a slight white tinge on your face until it has all been absorbed in your skin, but this is amazing for your skin, it is antibacterial and is excellent for looking after your skin and reducing spots, redness and any other skin problem!

So I have put my good skin down to this regime! I really think that is has been doing my skin the world of good, so I intend to keep it up and hopefully perfect skin will be mine!!

Clothes Show Live 2009!

I have just booked my ticket for the clothes show live at the NEC in birmingham....good times!

It is actually a little birthday present to myself :) Its my birthday on monday 7th December, and every year I always book the day off work and spend lots of money shopping! So this year I thought I would take myself to the clothes show and indulge in all the beauty make overs, freebies and clothes galore!!
Unfortunately as its a monday all my friends and my mum are working so they cant come with me but i'm actually secretly relieved as I love to shop on my own (is that just me??), I can spend as long as I want deciding over which beauty products to get (believe me I can take a long time to decide which products I need to get....and then usually getting everything ha!) and I can go to whatever stall I want without feeling like I'm holding somebody up!

So the countdown is on for my birthday!!!

Is anybody else off to the clothes show??
