Changing My Skin Care Game With This One Product!

Heey everyone!

So ever since the cold weather, I've had to take extra care of my sensitive skin because if your skin is anything like mine, if you don't keep on top of your skin care then you'll know the struggle to get it back to it's normal managable state.

If you haven't read my previous skin care posts then just to give some background information, I have dry/sensitive skin which is not prone to breakouts.

This skin combination can however be an absolute nightmare and for those who can relate, I've got you!

I tend to exfoliate my skin twice a week to get rid of any dead skin cells, which sounds absolutely gross, but if you could see the amount that actually comes away, you'll too want to introduce a good routine.

In the past, I used to love a good scrub exfoliator because of the satisfaction of feeling that my skin is completely clean. However, scrub based exfoliators or those that have grain type ingredients took quite a toll on my skin. I started to notice that my skin started to become even more sensitive, dry and I suffered from quite a fair bit of redness due to the irritation. Up until this point I was clueless on choosing a good product that was gentle on my  skin, which still gave me the same results and  satisfaction of a typical exfoliator. This is when this little gem came into my life. The Christian Breton Age Priority Lotion Exfoliante. Oh boy did this change the game.

This is a liquid based facial exfoliate which the texture is quite comparable to a general toner and it has NO ALCOHOL! Win! I apply this to a cotton pad and gently massage it into the skin, leaving it to soak for 2-5 minutes to ensure it has enough time to work it's magic. Once applied, there is a slight tingle sensation to skin which is quite a satisfying feeling as I feel it's bringing all the dirt to the surface of the skin. As I have sensitive skin, this lotion is very gentle on the skin which is great if you are used to the harsh ingredients in a general scrub exfoliant.  After the 5 minutes is up, I simply wash the lotion off with warm water ( option 2 would be to apply warm water to a cotton pad and remove the lotion), both work great! I have been using this product for the past two months and have dramatically seen a decrease in the redness of my skin. My skin also looks very refreshed and 'awake' which for someone who survives most days on little sleep, it's great to look as though I've had more hours sleep than I have.

The product claims:

• Glycolic acid: helps to eliminate dead cells, tone and firm the skin
• Fruit Acid: Thanks to its "peeling" effect and its action on cell renewal, it helps to smooth wrinkles, to blur the pigmentary spots and irregularities of the skin - Christian Breton Website.

This product is aimed at all skin types which is amazing! The only thing I found is that because I have super dry skin, my skin feels slightly tight and dry after use which is to be expected if you are removing layers of dead skin cells from the surface. However, I tend to jump straight into a good hydrating cleanser and moisturiser and the moisture is returned.

I would definitely recommend trying out this product for yourself as it's definitely made a staple in my skin care routine.  Product retails for £19.20 currently on the LookFantastic website!

( Please be aware that I only talk about products that have and are currently working for my skin type. Some products that work for me, may not work for you, finding a good solid skin care routine takes trial and error! :)
