Exfoliators + Some random bits

Hello my lovelies!

Since using Hot Cloth Cleansers with muslin cloths I have ditched typical gritty scrubs. I found that muslin cloth very gently removes dead skin cells on a daily basis and I just don’t need any more scrubbing. To be honest I always found them not fully effective anyway. 

I still suffer from blackheads, occasional spots and opened pores. That’s where deep pore cleansers come into play. I swear that thanks to these three products blackhead population on my face reduced by 90%. I call them exfoliators because they dissolve all dirt stuck into the pores and leave the skin silky smooth.

Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed - I massage it into my skin for a couple of minutes. It creates lovely warmth I find amazingly relaxing, especially during the cold days. Leave it on the skin for about 5 minutes and rinse/ sponge off. Reduction of blackheads is noticeable straight away. Pores are tightened, skin feels fresh and clean. This product is amazing if you need a fast skin pick me up before a big day or night.

Soap & Glory Fab Pore – not as amazing results as No Clogs Allowed. This one is more of a long term commitment. Use it regularly twice a week and you will see the difference in your skin. I apply it on my nose and chin when I need that extra cleanliness.

Alpha Hydrox AHA SoufflĂ© 12% Glycolic Acid – I was a bit apprehensive prior to buying it as you do need to be careful when using it. You must use an SPF 15 or higher during the day while using Glycolic Acid. I used it every day for about a week and now I’m using it once a week. My skin has never looked and felt better! I recommended this product to many of my friends and every single one of them is happy with the results. This stuff gets deeply into the pores and dissolves everything that shouldn’t be sitting in there. One thing to remember is that if you suffer from a lot of broken capillaries they will show up more. Because Glycolic Acid removes all the dirt from inside of the skin, new layers of the skin are more visible and broken capillaries with them.  I bought mine on ebay as it's not available in the UK.

I have got two more posts about skincare for you peeps. Hope it’s not too boring?

Other stuff:

* I have found this amazing video on how to remove glitter nail polish! If you’re like me and it takes you too much time, too much frustration and too many cotton pads then try the method from the video. I have and saved myself a lot of hustle.

* Does anyone watch “Play it Straight” on E4? It’s brilliant! Alan Carr is responsible for ¾ of fun factor there. Oh! And two guys dressed in Spanish Outfits playing the guitar and singing – priceless.

* I downloaded ‘Angry Birds’ on my phone on Sunday and haven’t stopped playing it till last night. I am addicted. Who came up with this brilliant idea?! Smashing homes of pigs with birds?! Love it!
