Ooooo I just love a mid-month beauty splurge, it’s a sure fire way to cheer me up. Especially given that my skin has been in terrible condition lately and resembles that of a spotty teenage Terri. Eww. Time to take action and get myself a proper skin care routine and replace all my miss matched usual’s with a set of decent products.
Skin background: I have combination to oily skin at the moment (Damn you winter!) Which means that generally I have dry skin but with an oily T-Zone. I have also had a really stressful few months which is wreaking havoc and causing breakouts.
So, after asking all my girlfriends for advice, reading a lot of reviews and taking the Clinique skin type test , I settled on this little lot.
Here we have the Clinique 3 step system and the city block sheer SPF 25.
Cleanse – Exfoliate – Moisturise – Protect.
The 3 step system:
To be used twice daily.
Step 1: The non-drying liquid face soap.
Step 2: Clarifying lotion to sweep away pollution and excess oil
Step 3: The Dramatically different moisturiser.
The City Block Sheer SPF25: Daily sunscreen that absorbs excess oil, protects and works well as a face primer. (I love a product that does more than one job because tbf I am lazy).
Update 30.05.17: After using the 3 step system until they ran out – I can confirm that they did nothing for my skin and I will not be repurchasing. I will however repurchase the City Block Sheer SPF25 as it works well as a primer and protects my face from the sun.
Feel free to drop some alternative suggestions below as I am now getting desperate.
