Skinbreeze Skincare | Brightening Serum and Blemish Fix Review
I am feeling super relieved at the moment, I have got just over a week off workso I'm hoping in this short period of time that I will manage to write up a couple of weeks post. I will still be posting 3 blog posts a week. Seriously though, if you're a mother and you work and blog everyday I take my hat off to you. I'm trying my best to keep to a schedule, haha.
Anyway, with that aside, over the last month or so I've been trialling out some new skincare from Skinbreeze. Admittedly
I had never heard of Skinbreeze beforehand which is a surprise to me as
many celebrities seem to be raving about their treatments. Skinbreeze is not necessarily a brand but a professional salon based treatment system who have their own skincare range.They cater for every skin type and skin concern possible.
For me though acne is my main concern since it started in my teens. I have tried many things to combat it such as over the counter medicines and even roaccutane which only resulted in the spots popping back up again. Acne really puts a dent in my confidence, and even though it's not as bad as it was a few years back before roaccutane, it's still present and affects me. As well as the acne, my complexion tends to look quite dull too, and dare I say it, lifeless, especially in the morning. I crave clear, glowing skin, and that's exactly what I was hoping for when I trialled theSkinbreeze Brightening Serum and Blemish Fix.
Let's talk packaging first shall we?It may seem slightly strange that the serum is within a syringebut I actually find it so much easier to work with as you're able to control how much product you need to apply. I find that I only need to dispense one small 'pump' to use all over my face.
The *Blemish Fix is as you'd guess, for problematic, acne prone skin. It contains the main spot fighting ingredient, salicylic acid which helps toprevent oil from getting trapped in the pores. As well as salicylic acid it also contains hyaluronic acid and seaweed extract to soothe and hydrate. The instructions are to apply it every morning and night but I only applied it at night as I felt that it was too much for me to use twice a day. The Blemish Fix serum makes my skin feel incredibly dry so a moisturiser is definitely needed after use. Personally I didn't see any difference in my complexion at all, except for the tight, dry feeling that the serum left behind unfortunately. I'm so surprised seeing as it contains hyaluronic acid. I'm gutted I didn't get along with it.
As for the *Brightening Serum, well, that's a totally different story. It's supposed to lighten and brighten any dull complexion and help towards reducing any pigmentation left behind from acne and brown spots too. Well it definitely takes my complexion from dull to bright and glowy, however I never noticed any change in my scarringfrom my acne. That's still as prominent as ever. It's instructed that I applied this on a clean face day and night and I stuck to that, just for a while, but eventually decided upon applying it in the morning before applying my makeup. It creates a nice illuminating base for my makeup for sure. . The Brightening Serum and Blemish Fix along with the rest of the Skinbreeze skincare range is available within all Skinbreeze Salons nationwide. From what I can tell it doesn't look like the Skinbreeze is available online unfortunately.
Have you tried anything from the Skinbreeze Range? Do you suffer from acne and a dull complexion? I'd love to know what you'd suggest I try next
