I have a big problem with acne and oily skin so trying to find something that helps this as much as it can is hard. And it seems the only brands that mostly help are The Body Shop and Witch.
I started using The Body Shop first a few years ago with the tree tea range then I moved onto the seaweed range. Right now I use the Seaweed clarifying toner, it’s light and feel that I don’t need to use a lot so a normal sized 200ml bottle lasts me a long time. And my two recent finds are the Seaweed purifying facial cleanser, I’ve only just started using it but so far so good. I just massage some onto my face, you don’t need a lot then with a couple of cotton pads wipe it off gently. It doesn’t make your face sticky or heavy and has so far helped with my oily face.
And the Camomile cleansing butter. I don’t use this often at the moment just because I haven’t used this range before but it does make your skin feel clean and soft. I leave it on for a couple of minutes before washing it off otherwise I think it hasn’t done it’s work probably.
Moving on to the Witch range. I use their mattifying moisturiser SPF15 in the mornings. I don’t feel that it gives me 24 hour hydration like it’s meant to but it still works for me for most of the day.
Every girl should have a BB cream and mine is the Witch anti-blemish beauty balm with SPF 12. The colour is nice and matches well with my pale skin. I think it only comes in one colour as far as I can see. I have used The Body Shop BB cream as well but I found that to heavy for me.
An update on my polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). I had a second appointment with a gynecologist last week, my blood tests are clear so I’m now waiting for a scan appointment to come through in the next 6 weeks hopefully.
The Body Shop is available online here and in stores. Witch is available in Boots and Superdrug and some supermarkets.
Hope this helps someone else!
