Since officially becoming an "adult" I have developed an Oily T-Zone, an over-run of pesky black heads on my nose and some terrible breakouts, particularly in said T-Zone. As much as I love (and obsessively buy!) make up I am eager to return to a state where I feel truly confident make up free, and along the way, develop a rigorous and consistent skin care regime that will rid me of my bad sleeping in makeup habits. - Plus not wearing makeup makes my morning rush a little less stressful!
I have tried several different products ad hoc, but recently after some deliberation, I decided to buy into the Clinique 3-Step programme. After doing my research and answering a few of their skin care questions online, I headed to their counter in Debenhams (Briggate, Leeds) to seek some advice from those in the know.
There is something about the girls on make-up counters that I just don't quite get. Some are incredibly judgmental (coughMaccough) some are the results of a make-up explosion who scare me to death when they offer to do my make-up (Clown is so not in season!) and when it comes to those who are selling award winning clinical skin care - why do they have so much make-up on to cover that "promised" flawless skin?
To be honest, I don't rate that moisturiser very highly, but I have been using the "Dramatically different moisturizing lotion" that came with my Free Gift set, and have found this to be working very well, and returning my skin to it's healthy, moisturised self.
I also look cracking in my body-shop headband when cleansing - Adam says I look like a Tennis Player, Mum asked if I was going for a JOG(!!!) - negative to both of those, obviously!
