Sebamed Cleansing Bar

Firstly I'd like to say Hello to my new followers! thank you for following my blog x

Up until I was 21 I had pretty good skin, with only the rare spot around that time of the month. Nothing to really worry about.
When I reached 21 my skin suddenly changed and I was having breakouts a few times a month, so depressing.

I have tried quite a few treatments Freedem,Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Spot Gel and tea tree based products. They did help a bit with the redness and healing but only once I actually had the blemish. I needed something to stop me getting them in the first place.
I read about Sebamed products on another blog a couple of months ago, and decided to give it a try.

What they say
Sebamed clear face cleansing bar effective against pimples, blackheads and skin impurities in a natural way. Cleanses, deep into the pores gently, free of soap and alkali.

Cares for young skin with valuable amino acids, important vitamins and active moisturisers. Compatible to the skins own pH value of 5.5, it stabilisers the natural protective acid layer of the skin, providing biological protection against acne bacteria, thus effectively preventing new pimples.

It stabilizes the natural protective acid layer of the skin providing biological protection against acne bacteria therefore preventing new pimples.

Does it work?
Yes!! I have been using this for 5/6 weeks now, I like to try products out for at least 3 weeks to see the effect they have on my skin.

As this is soap free it does not dry your skin out at all, it leaves it really moisturized. Its all down to the PH level being restored and also it smells really nice as well!

I use this twice a day in the morning and before going to bed.
I use a make up remover wipe in the evening after using this bar to make sure all traces of make up are removed.

My skin is a lot clearer then it has been for the past two years! Ive even had people say how good my skin is! which is a great feeling.Especially if you have been suffering from skin problems for a while it does knock your confidence.
So to have people comment on how good my skin is now, means it must work!

Obviously I still get the odd blemish, and blackheads etc.. But this cleansing bar has improved my skin a lot.

You can find this online at many places. I paid £3.60 and that included P&P. So it really is inexpensive and worth trying out.

There a many different products in the range from liquid face and body wash to shampoo.

Overall I give this 10/10

RAVE Product Dove lip care ♥

One of my favorite products that I have been using this past month, is my Dove lip balm.

(Sorry stock photos again)

I asked a few weeks ago what people thought was the best to try, thank you for the replies. I will be picking up the Lush one next time I go past one, I'm still not sure about the Burt Bee's, as I really did not like the one I tried in the past.

I had a look online and on Ebay when I came across the Dove lip care.

The only down side is that these are not available in the UK, I think that they are from Germany or/and Denmark.

I have found someone that sells these on Ebay for a great price, let me know if you want to try this and I'l find out the name of the seller.

Dove have brought out five different versions of this. I want them all but cannot find the other colours online anywhere!

Anyway, This lip balm is the best one I have ever used so far, after two days of using this my once dry lips were lovely soft and flake free :)

The Product itself is white and smells like all the other Dove products which is a smell I love, It leaves a sheer glossy look and is so moisturizing.

Over all I love this product and give it a 10/10.

ELF Hd powder and Eyelid primer

This was the first time I have ever brought anything from ELF as I could never decide on what to get and wasn't too sure if the products would be any good due to the low price of the make up.

I decided to get the High Definition powder as I have heard some good reviews on it and was looking for a powder to set my make up anyway.

This cost £6.00
(Sorry about the stock pictures, I haven't got my camera at the moment)

What they say
The high definition loose powder creates a "soft focus" effect to the skin. Masks fine lines and imperfections for a radiant complexion. The incredibly soft and invisible powder is great for on-screen and everyday wear.

Does it work?
To be honest I am a bit disappointed with this product, I had heard such good reviews on it and was looking forward to using it.It is a very fine powder that feels silky it comes with a puff applicator but I decided to use a face brush to apply this as using the puff applicator you cannot see how much of the product you are using as the powder itself is white.

I used this after applying my foundation and concealer, I found with this that it does give a nice texture to the skin but also high lights any dry skin and fine lines. I have a combination skin type, so i do need to use a powder to stop the shine most days. I thought at first maybe I had used a little to much so on the second try I used a little bit less, but after 1-2 hours I didn't like the way my skin looked.
Could notice fine lines more then usual.

Over all I would give this a 6/10, maybe it suits people with different skin types better.

The second thing i decided to get was the Eyelid Primer. In the past I have used UDPP, which i love but thought i would try a cheaper one.

This cost £1.50.

What they say
Preps your eyelid for smoother, longer-lasting and crease-proof eyeshadow. The ultra sheer nude color works to increase eye color longevity. The lightweight liquid formula quickly absorbs into the skin for comfortable wear.

Does it work?
For the price I didnt expect that much, and to be honest its not that great.Half way through the day my eyeshadow had creased and looked messy.
It just caused my eyelids to be more oily then usual and cause the eyeshadow to crease more then it would with out using any primer at all!

Overall I give this a 2/10.

I have heard so many good things about ELF but personally I dont think there products seem very good at all,I might give them another go as I would love to see what the lipsticks are like, and also the mineral range they now have.
I have also heard good things about some of the brushes too.

What are your thoughts on ELF products?
