I will admit that I can be a little bit lacklustre when it comes to skin care, but this product has actually given me the motivation to keep up a proper, regular regime. It all started with a friend’s recommendation – she had been using the good old muslin cloths for weeks on end and was always commenting on how soft and fresh her skin was feeling. But after five weeks of constant use, here is my verdict on the product.
Directions: For anyone who hasn’t used my latest wonder-product yet, it is so easy and quick to use. Simply pump a small amount of the cream into your hand, rub in a circular motion around dry skin, leave for a moment, and remove with a hot damp muslin cloth. And the best part of having two cloths is that you can alternate while you wash the other cloth, meaning you always have a clean one.
Value for money: I was led to believe that this was a relatively luxury product, possibly a little out of my price range where skin care was concerned. I tend to avoid expensive skincare products, but this retailed at £19.95 for a bottle of the solution, two muslin cloths and a handy carry case. I’ve only just invested in a new one, because a pump and a half is more than enough to cover your face.
Smell: Personally, I adore the smell of this solution, but that’s possibly because I worked as a lifeguard for six years and got accustomed to the eucalyptus scent from the steam room. The strong scent of eucalyptus masks the other ingredients for me, but almost invigorates your senses as you scrub, making it perfect for morning use.
Results: This the all-important part, because no matter how good it smells and how much value it is, it has to do the job, and this definitely does. Within a few days of using the product, the annoying spots on my head that I had been trying not to touch had subsided. I am also pleased to report that I have not hand one chin-pimple that I, and so many others, tend to get around particularly hormonal times, which is a success in itself!
