Zero Oil Deep Pore Cleanser - £18.50
Back in the days of my blemish-free face, oh how I miss thee, I was obsessed with the Deep pore cleanser from the Zero Oil collection. Whilst shopping in Boots the other week, my eyes gravitated to it and reevaluated what I've been doing all of these months without it by my side. What I love is that it's oil free - a god send for my extra-oily skin which barely has any dry spots. Also, the infusion of mint and saw palmetto are great relievers for my sensitive skin as often I wash my face at least twice daily to insure I've gotten rid of unwanted bacteria and my skin never irritates from repetitive washes. Saw Palmetto is known to contain a high concentration of polysaccharides, which in English, are used to enhance the immune system by working as an inflammatory. So, although it would be even more beneficial to my skin to take Saw Palmetto as a supplement, which I'd strongly advice, using it as a daily wash helps my acne at bay and reduces the redness of outbreaks.
Zero Oil Moisture Lotion - £24
The moisturiser to complement the face wash is so soothing to apply! A little definitely goes a long way with this product which is just as well because it is half the size of the face wash for a higher price. A penny sized amount is enough to cover my entire face whilst still being able to make my skin feel nourished. The moisturiser doesn't make me 'glow from within' or anything amazing necessarily, but it does the main job for me which is to mattify my skin to hugely prevent it from getting oily later on in the day. I was so conscious of my face being shiny on days out that I'd constantly be vain and check any mirror I might pass. With this baby I don't have to and can happily enjoy being with friends and family without worrying over my face looking like it had just been fried on with half a dozen of eggs.
Super Spot Remover - £15
Because I'm a salesperson's dream and will buy anything if they shove it in my face, I was instantly sold on buying the 'super' spot remover. The alliteration was enough to sell me alone. Jokes aside,this is some pretty powerful stuff and if you're looking for a gel that'll reduce blemishes, this is for you. The size of the product again is laughable but, you genuinely don't need a lot. I tend to only apply it to my blemishes in the evenings now as I realised that it works best then. I dab a tiny amount to the tip of my finger and work it into the problem area or spot. It used to sting me a lot, which I liked because I knew it was burning the pesky things off of my face, but I think I'm immune to the pain now and it still delivers great results. By the morning my blemish won't always be gone, but it will have reduced in size by incredible amounts! I keep this perfection by my bedside at all times.
I'd love to know of any oil-free products you guys try. I'm always on the lookout for the holy grail so if you have any recommendations please let me know. Or, if there's a product you'd like me to try and test I'd be more than happy to take one for the team.
