I’ve recently made an order from Cult Beauty for my updated skincare goodies, all of which are carefully tailored, by me, to suit my blooming confused and utterly distressed face.
I struggle so much with “Product Exploration”. It’s such a gamble as to what I can and cant use, that won’t send my skin into a spiral of turmoil, and break me out in the most aggressive pimples and redness.
I don’t know when it happened really, but all through my teenage years I was blessed with acne free skin. Many of my friends through puberty had some quite severe spots now and then, whilst I had absolutely nothing. It was awesome. My hair was horrific though, but that’s another story, for another time…maybe.
Journey forward to my 30th birthday and BOOM! Here’s everything you missed out on as a spotty teenager! Take a load of this!
In a heartbeat, I developed adult acne, and rosacea, just like that. Thankfully, it is primarily settled on my cheeks, and doesn’t spread to my forehead, nose, chin, or lips, but some of the pimples that moved in on my cheeks have literally stayed there for…well…months. Months and months. These horrible little issues are the main reason why I simply cannot flip flop between high street and medical products anymore. I just can’t. My face would hate me for it.
So today, I’ll talk you through the collection of life savers which really do seem to be keeping my troubles at bay, for now.
Beginning with how I treat my face foundation.
Alpha-H Liquid Gold is a powerful resurfacing and firming treatment for diminishing wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage.
This multi action formula is enriched with silk proteins, licorice extract and Glycolic Acid. It works to jump start the skin’s metabolism, tightening enlarged pores and giving a brighter, clearer complexion.
Compared to an ‘overnight facial’, Liquid Gold is perfect for brightening skin and has a 5 Star Review rating from Beauty Bay customers who have tried and tested the product.
Alpha-H Liquid Gold also makes an effective acne treatment when used in conjunction with other blemish fighting products from the Alpha H range.
Please Note: This product is not recommended for delicate or sensitive skin.
Right, so don’t panic over the last line in this Quote. I’ll get to that in a bit, but yeah, I use this treatment once every two evenings before bed, on a squeaky clean face. It contains Glycolic Acid, which is the main “resurfacing” element to the product here, and naturally this also helps a tonne with tackling acne scarring and bumps too, like is says there. It’s recommended for use every other day, due to the drying qualities of some of the ingredients, and potential of irritation, but so far I’ve had no issues, and my acne bumps are getting squished by the day!
So yes, somehow Kevyn Aucoin has managed to develop a formula whereby you need only the smallest amount of product to provide the most intense coverage ever, which in turn means that all of your acne and imperfections are completely erased, without the need for multiple layering or product build up, meaning your skin can still breathe and combat those pesky spots!
Here I am wearing it in this shot. For my skin tone, I’m wearing the shade: SX10
And there we go! This comb of coolness really does seem to be helping me out a tonne. I do find that if I don’t alternate my products at least a little every few months, then my skin somehow decides it can resist their tackles a little, so switching some out, and back again later really helps keep it on its toes.
I often like to switch out my morning wash with the Beta Hydroxy, for a treat of the “Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip” cleanser, if my skin is looking particularly good at the time. I truly do think that if something isn’t broken (ie. your face), then you shouldn’t continue to try fixing it when it’s actually behaving itself. “Ceramic Slip” continues to ensure your skin stays beautifully soft and retextured, but with more of a focus on overall texture, as oppose to specialising in an area, like spots. I like it a tonne, and have noticed that the surface of my nose and forehead are especially smooth, with pores less visible after around two months use, so that’s great. Definitely can be drying though, so again, moisturise!
Thanks for sharing my favourites with me, and be sure to let me know if you have tried any of these, or have any recommendations for switching things up!
