If you're wondering what I'm talking about, I'm talking Spots, I'm talking bumps on my forhead that look like developing devil horns, I'm talking a horrific tzone and a rash that covers a whole side of my face. This sounds horrible, and it was/is (im still recovering). I have never in my life had a breakout this bad. Friends suggested it might be due to diet or stress and although I have been bogged down with exam revision, I really don't feel that stressed. As for diet, nothing has changed. Now you can understand why I havn't included a picture of this horrific breakout, firstly I'd rather give up marmite for life and secondly, you'd probably stop following me.
Superdrug simply pure gentle eye makeup remover, Superdrug simply pure calming cleanser, Simple kind to skin replenishing rich moisturiser.
Now I'm not sure which of these f***ers is the guilty culprit but it's definatly one of them. I brought them all on the same day and starting using them all together. The breakout occured after about 2 days, worsened, and how now lasted about 6 days.
I am really frustrated about this because the whole reason for my buying these products is because I was buying sensitive skin products on a budget. Fair enough if these products didn't work so well, as they were cheap, but this definatly should not have happened!
Garnier soft essentials dry & sensitive skin cleansing milk, (same brand) soothing toner, E45 cream.
These products were all cheap (Garnier 2 for £4 and E45 £1.99) so didn't break the bank, but as I said, I shouldn't have had to buy them anyway.
The reason I chose these is because i've used the garnier ones before and they had a nice scent and were lovely on my skin, and you can't go wrong with E45. Ive just cleansed and toned my face and applied the E45 cream all over and I have to say, my skin feels immediately better and less itchy and sore. The E45 cream isn't really ideal for everyday use as it's quite greasy but I'm just going to let it sink in and work its magic.
So the moral of this horror story is an unresolved one: I don't know what to do. Should I storm into boots and demand my money back (i've lost the reciept), which I really hate doing, or should I just accept that there are some just some products out there that will do the complete opposite to what they advertise, and more?
Please let me know if any of you have had similar experienced and with what products and what you did about it.
