As you must have guessed, I like to try out skincare products. Here is a list of some of the products I have gone through over the last 3- 4 months. I wanted to share my thoughts on which products are worth a repurchase.
This is not a detailed review,
Without further ado
Sunday Riley Good Genes All in one Lactic acid treatment
This cult skincare favourite is Lactic acid chemical exfoliator. It is also one of the best products from the brand I have used. It improves hyperpigmentation and skin texture and plus my skin loves it. The only caveat is that it is expensive.
Re Purchase: yes
ALPHA H Liquid gold with Glycolic acid
This is another cult skincare favourite but one I have a love-hate relationship with. It is a glycolic acid-based chemical exfoliator that is supposed to help primarily reduce hyperpigmentation. It does the job but my skin does not really love it and I cannot say I have seen a significant improvement but I still use it from time to time. It is relatively inexpensive and comes in different sizes so you can start with a small bottle to see how it goes.
Re purchase: Maybe
IN THE BEGINNING
Deep Pore & Exfoliating Balm Cleanser
This is a solid cleansing balm which I got as part of a buy one get one free package . It emulsifies when water is applied to the skin which means it rinses off easily (one of my pet peeves ). It comes in a rather small container when compared to other cleansing balms, so is relatively expensive. Although it gets the job done, there are a host of others that work just as well.
If you want to try it, use it well within the recommended period as mine got a little grainy after a while. It didn’t affect the effectiveness it just felt funny on my skin.
Re Purchase: No
Now everyone knows this brand and product. It is what all chemical exfoliates want to be when they grow up, it improves skin texture, hyperpigmentation and helps control breakouts. However P50 this is not the original formula which makes all the difference. I have used both and the P50 1970 works so much better for my skin.
Re Purchase : No (but only because I will be using P50 1970)
Ferullic +Rentiol eye cream
I got this as part of a beauty box and it is supposed to help with crepey skin like most eye creams and the ferulic acid was supposed to take it up a notch.
I didn’t like it at all, the texture of the cream didn’t feel right to me and it also irritated my eyes quite a bit.
Re Purchase :No
So there it is my mini product review for my empties. Have you used any of these products? Do you
