This will be the last post in my product empties mini-series, and this one is all my empty serums and spot treatments. If you’ve enjoyed this litter series, I’ll be doing monthly empties, similar to how these posts have worked. I uploaded my first monthly empties last month, so be sure to go give that a read after this post. Click here to be redirected. If you want to catch up on all the empties posts I’ve published so far, I’ve covered the following categories; face-masks, moisturisers, cleansers and face-washes, and shower and body. As usual, I’ll be rating each product out of five hearts (♥♥♥♥♥). Then giving you the full low-down on my opinions of each of them.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution ♥♥♥♥ –
I previously mentioned this product in my ‘Winter Skincare Routine‘ a couple of years ago. I’ve finally finished it to give you a full review. As I discussed in the previous posy, I tend to use this solution, when my skin is especially dry and more on an evening, as it is enriched with tea tree oil, and my skin looks oily enough during the day! It helps to make my skin look and feel purified and gives my skin-tone a fresher look and texture.
The Body Shop Seaweed Oil-Control Overnight Gel ♥♥♥♥ –
Mum picked this serum up for me for Christmas the other year, after being recommended it for my skin type, by the lady who served her. It is applied on an evening before bed, and then in the morning my skin feels softer and hydrated without looking shiny and feeling tacky. I have since picked up the day moisturiser from the same sea-weed range, as you’ll have seen in my ‘product empties: moisturisers‘ post, and I absolutely love it.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (+) Unifant ♥♥♥♥♥ –
If you saw my post dedicated to the La Roche-Posay Effaclar range, you will know how much I love these products. Adam bought me this one accidentally after getting it mixed up with the normal one. At first, I wasn’t so sure, but I’ve found it’s really good for either those days where I don’t want to wear a lot of make-up, and I’m trying to brave my horrendous skin. It gives you a little coverage whilst evening out the skin-tone, whilst doing the same good stuff the normal Effaclar Duo does. Also, another reason it’s great for those bad skin care days where you need more coverage, is that it acts as a great make-up base, as foundation sits on top of it really well.
Skin Respect Skin Plumping Peptide Mist ♥ –
I picked this facial mist up, when there was a huge rave about the Mario Badescu rose facial spray. It was in TK Maxx and I think it cost me around £3-4. I found it hard to fully review this product, as I couldn’t get over the smell of the spray. It is gross. However, it did leave my skin feeling refreshed and more supple.
Newtons Labs T-Zone Skincare Spot Zapping Gel ♥♥♥ –
This was the classic teenage spot treatment go to, I know. I had to give it another try seen as it is only £1. I found it was great for reducing the odd spot size and inflammation. But, it wasn’t effective for larger areas of blemishes. For £1 though, I can’t really complain too much.
Origins Make a Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment Lotion ♥♥♥♥♥ –
If you read my post reviewing the whole of the ‘Origins ‘Make a Difference Plus+’ Range‘, you’ll know this product was one of the products I reviewed. Click here to be redirected to that post to get my full opinion on this serum, as well as the rest of the ‘Make a Difference+’ range.
Avon Clearskin Blemish Clearing Overnight Treatment ♥ –
This was another product I purchased during my teenage years, which has been sat waiting to be reviewed. Unfortunately, this product left my skin feeling tacky to the touch, making it itchy and really irritated. This then caused further breakouts, rather than actually reducing the current blemished areas of the skin. I definitely will not be trying this product again.
That’s it for my opinions on all the empty serums and spot treatments I’ve been hoarding. What are your skincare recommendations for acne and oily skin?
