I have been struggling with bad skin for about 18 months now. I had always had quite good skin, getting the odd blemish but nothing I was too worried about. However in the last 18 months or so I have been struggling with bad blemishes. I can't remember the last time I didn't have a blemish, so I have come to know which products really do work and which aren't really worth it. I thought I would share with you some products I reach.

First is the Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Oil Control Mask. I actually had a post on this go up last week so if you want a more in depth review check that out here. This mask is so good at just drying out any blemishes, it is quite pricey however the bottle has lasted me so long. I use this as more of a spot treatment, so I'll leave it on a blemish over night, rather than as a whole face mask. However it does make a really good mask and I would definitely recommend it.

Next is the La Roche-Posay Targeted Breakout Corrector. I have been really loving this recently. I find this helps so much with helping to reduce acne scars. Pretty much every spot I get results in a scar, even if I don't touch it, it will scar. This product really helps my skin scar less, I still get a small scar however it is nowhere near as prominent as it would have been without this product.

The Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel is a really strong spot treatment. So you can use this as either an all over treatment or on the spot treatment. I was reluctant to purchase this as it's quite pricey for 30mls however it has lasted me for such a long time. It can sting a lot if you put it on a spot that isn't quite healed, however it really works well at drying up the blemish.

Finally is a good old favourite of mine. I cannot shut up about how amazing tea tree oil is for your skin. It works so well at getting rid of blemishes. I have tried a few products with tea tree oil in however I find putting tea tree oil, neat, straight onto the blemish it works best. I would always recommend this as it is reasonable cheap, lasts a long time and is so effective!

I would love to know your skincare saviours, let me know.
