So ive been using these products for about 6 months now, so before and after pictures are a bit hard to create because my skin is so different from what it used to be.
My skin was bumpy, with breakouts on my cheeks, chin and forehead. When i put make up on, the bumps were more prominent, my skin almost looked scaly because of it and i hated it. I had comedones, open acne and blackheads with open pores. My skin was awful and it made me feel so bad about myself.
I started with the ZO Skin Health Complexion Clearing Program, this one was for normal to oily skin. It included:
Exfoliating Cleanser: This product contains small beads of white and blue Jojoba esters and this Exfoliates dead skin cells, also Encapsulated vitamin E which is a great antioxidant for the skin. The cleanser clears away dead skin cells, unclogs pores, rids of oily deposits without stripping the skin.
I love this cleanser because it soothes my skin, i wear quite alot of make up and it clears it away easily, foams up a little bit but not too much. Its great but i wouldnt put it near my sensetive skin around my eyes, i did that once and it got quite sore.
Exfoliating Polish: This stuff is just amaaaaaazing! First of all it smells good, like i really know its going to get into my skin. Its blue with so many tiny beads called magnesium crystals, they exfoliate dead skin cells. They help to create a clearer and smoother complexion. After you use it, your face just glows! Its a little bit sensetive but it gets in all the pores and really clears your face, it feels baby soft after!
Complexion Renewal Pads: WOW, these bad boys are just delightful. Can sting a little bit but thats what they are for and its worth the pain for ridding your skin of bumps and excess oils. They contain glycolic acid and this is a results based epidermal exfoliant! And trust me you can feel it, its like having a mini peel and if youre like me and love the burn, knowing its going to make your skin glow then these is for you! It also contains a botanical extract blend and it gives anti-irritant properties to help soothe the skin and get rid of redness which is probably going to happen, they also provide antioxidant benefits for the skin, which is just what you want if you have a acnegenic skin. The texture of pads are specifically designed to help promote exfoliation, they feel all bumpy, its a good feeling on the skin, like youre really cleaning it out!
Sulfur Masque: Oooooooo the sulfur masque, you can smell it the minute you open it. The moment it touches your skin its like a deep cleanse. I sometimes leave mine on over night for a good rejuvenation of the skin. So Obaji has said this is a natural, clay-based masque that treats and prevents acne, and you can really feel it working. The masque ‘purifies’ the pores and get rid of excess oil which can lead to future breakouts. It also hydates the skin by using Glycerin which helps in hydrating the skin to combat any dryness that can occur. Its gorgeous and feels fabulous.
(Apologies for my hair on here, i love a chill day with a mask and pjs!)
So the verdict, after using this four step programme, you’ll truly feel like youve had a mini facial and skin peel. It really does work wonders on your skin, but you must keep up the routine with it. You can also add in extra products to the routine but youd have to speak to your providing physician about this to get it right for your skin. The most important thing to do after using this program is to wear an SPF.
I wear OClipse Sunscreen and Primer, its so smooth and sleek giving a lovely matte finish. It can be used alone or it can go under make up, it has a universal tint for all skin tones. It goes on your skin like butter. Its a fantastic primer for using with your make up, keeps it in place for the day and creates a smooth base for you to apply foundation. SPF 30 as well. It is a non-greasy and quick drying formula with a sheer matte finish and includes broad-spectrum protection against UVA, UVB rays. Lovely product to add into your skincare routine!
