Declare war to acne with Avon, Clinique, Vichy, Garnier, Boots and Maybelline products

We all have those days when we woke up in the morning we look in the mirror and we discover a fresh new pimple. These situations don’t happened to me very often, but when they do they kind of kill my day. For these kind of problems and even for others acne problems more severe I found a strategy. Out there are products designed to help us defeat the acne problems, we just need to look for the good ones.

The other day I was reading a post about How to Treat Post-Acne Scarring and I decided to develop this idea and talk to you about all the products that I have tried concerning this problems. Let me know in your comments if you have any other ideas about products that can help us fight the acne and their scars and even those red spots or pimples.

Avon Solutions Plus Pure Pore - Fection Self - Foaming Cleanser

If we just keep some rules in mind and follow them we can diminish the apparition of pimples and win the war against acne. So here are some steps that helped me in those situations and I hope to be helpful for you too.

  • Don’t sleep with your makeup on! It’s essential that your skin is perfectly clean during the night. You can use a makeup remover product that also has antibacterial action, morning and evening.

My recommendation: Try the Solutions Plus Pure Pore – Fection Self – Foaming Cleanser from Avon ( 150 ml) with bamboos and bisabolol extracts. It’s an oil-free product that will give you a tingly clean feeling. Cleanses deep down to remove dirt and make-up, leaving skin feeling refreshed and energised.

  • Clean the pores! For this you will need a mask specially created to reduce and prevent the apparition of pimples and dark spots.

My recommendation: Use twice a week, Clinique Oil-Control Cleansing Mask (19,50 $ for 100 ml), the new acne solution. This clay-based mask will help heal your blemishes, prevent breakouts and also will keep your skin shine-free. This is a good mask to use even for those ladies who don’t have acne problems but have an oily skin like mine, because its medicated formula gives your skin a deep clean, unclog  pores and rid skin of excess oil. Anyway it’s a mask designed for all skin types so it can’t have undesirable effects on your skin. All the process takes me about 7 minutes, while I apply the mask evenly on my face ( avoiding the eye area), then I wait 5 minutes and after I rinse off thoroughly with warm water. My skin feels smoother and clearer after this. I also like it because it has an oil-free formula and it won’t irritate my skin.

Clinique Oil-Control Cleansing Mask

Another great facial mask that I love and I’m currently using is Clinique Turnaround – 15 Minute Facial mask, and you can check out my review for more details. Continue Reading

Lancome Mascaras review- Which one is your favorite? Hypnose, Fatale, Definicils or maybe the new Hypnose Drama

lancome3

Lancome’s Mascaras have the  best mascara formula I’ve ever used. Along the years I’ve tried lots of Mascaras Brands, from Max Factor and L’Oreal to Maybelline and Rimmel.  Some of them were great at first, like Max Factor Masterpiece ( It was love at first sight with this baby ),  but after a while – and I’m not talking months – the effect was not the same and it really ended very fast. Some of my friends were using it too and we all realized that after 3 weeks we need a new one. I like the texture of a new mascara, and I know  is natural that after a few weeks of using will not have the same effect like in the beginning, but with Masterpiece all was happening very fast. Every 3 weeks I had to buy a new one, so I start searching for a new brand of mascara in the same price range.

Soon after this I took a trip by plane and I had the chance to scoop into the tax free shops. Here I found LancomeHypnose and Definicils wrapped together at a very good price. I knew Hypnose  was launched in 2004 and quickly became the best world selling mascara, so tempted by the 2 in 1 price offer and reviews I’ve decided to give it a try. Continue Reading
