SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Cleansing Gel and Solution Review!

Hey beauties hope you are having a lovely Easter weekend! I have had a super busy week and really looking forward to unwind and enjoy some lazy time... I should also have a bit more time to write quite a few blogposts... Without a further ado here is the fantastic skincare I have mentioned a while ago! This is what I have been using to get my acne under control, which got out of hand again in January... SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age range is great for my type of skin, which is combo/oily, acne prone, and as I am turning 30 [gasp] this summer the anti-ageing aspect of this skincare range is also vital! 

I have been using the Cleansing Gel and the Solution [tonic] for a few months now... My skin started reacting to these two products roughly after about a month... You are meant to use the cleanser and tonic on your face and neck twice a day... I have however noticed after about 2-3 weeks that was too much for my skin, although my skin type is combo/oily it tends to get dehydrated during the winter, especially this year when the weather has been so cold for so long here in London... And so it was too much for my neck, which started to feel slightly irritated and extremely dehydrated... So I just continued using the cleanser in the morning on the face and neck and tonic morning and evening just on the face not taking it down my neck... A few days later after intensely hydrating my sensitive neck skin with moisturisers it got back to normal... 

The results are incredible, my acne break out was mostly concentrated on the lower cheeks and on the chin... After about two months the texture of my skin visibly became smoother and a lot more clear all over the face... And the areas where the acne used to be concentrated also cleared up completely, I haven't had a spot there for a couple of months now, all you can see is just a few tiny scars which are starting to fade slowly... I still get an odd spot here and there but they are not grouped, and generally it is a reaction to some of the skincare products I try, especially if I try a bunch in a short period of time - my skin is guaranteed to misbehave... Now if I get a spot it's mostly on the chin or on the temples, not sure why there but hopefully with time these areas will also completely clear up!

SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Cleansing Gel and Solution are great for problematic, congested and photodamaged skin - it exfoliates decongested pores, removes impurities, and softens the skin... Both of the products have Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid, which are great for unclogging pores and removing dead skin cells leaving a smoother skin... I find SkinCeuticals to be a very serious skincare brand, the active ingredients visibly improve your skin, generally in quite a dramatic way... For me it's been a miracle to have the lower cheeks clear of acne, an area that has been affected for a few years...
