This is absolutely my new favourite moisturiser. Those of you that have been with me for a while will know the love I’ve pledged to Clean & Clear over the years for balancing out my combination, blemish prone skin but lately it’s just not doing it for me. I think since my skin has ‘matured’ (I’m only 26 but y’know whada mean!) it’s dried out a lot and the dual action moisturiser just isn’t moisturiser enough. I started using this a week ago when I was suffering (and still am) major breakouts after totally running out of my staple cleanser.. my skin was not happy. I put this on and almost immediately my skin looked calmer. It’s described as a lightweight yet creamy moisturiser for combination skin and claims to hydrate drier areas without leaving the skin greasy all over. It absolutely does do all of those things and although it states to use ‘daily’ I’ve been using this morning and night. It may not be heavy enough for the winter months but especially with this changeable, humid weather we’re having recently it’s the perfect formula for me. It dries almost matte on the skin so is great under makeup and it contains antiseptic to fight those troublesome breakouts and hopefully prevent new ones. There’s a whole Balancing line in the Eve Taylor range and if you’re of the popular combination skin type you will definitely find something to suit you no matter how dry or oily you may be. Having done just a little online ‘research’ a lot of forums compare her line to Dermalogica but at a fraction of the cost, and for good reason. It would appear old Eve was quite the pioneer in the skincare world when it comes to essential oils and all that and she helped to create many of Dermalogica’s products containing them so I’d be interested to do an ingredient comparison at some point.
I know Susie Amy from Blusher&Blogging has raved about this brand in the past so when I was offered this to try I couldn’t decline but as you know my reviews are always honest and influenced by no-one else.
At the end of the day if you’re a teen looking for balance the Clean & Clear will do the trick for the bargainous price of £2.99 but if you’re older and looking to take a little better care of your skin this is what I consider to be the ‘grown up’ equivalent. and at £13.09 it’s great value as you really don’t need much.
