real-u Skincare

Having a clear, fresh, blemish-free face is something pretty much all of us dream of having, but a lot of products that promise to do this don't actually work or, make your skin even worse. This is even more true for those of us (me included) who have oily and blemish prone skin in the first place, as a lot of products that produced for this skin type can contain harmful ingredients such as Benzoyl Peroxide and/or Salicylic Acid.

For the past few months, I have been testing out real-u Control+ Face Gel and Spot Treatment* and they have worked wonders! Neither of these products contain the 2 ingredients mentioned above, meaning they are perfect for my sensitive skin.

The Control+ Face Gel did make my skin feel more oily to start with, as it was reacting to previously being stripped of oil to being helped to gently calm down. This only lasted for a couple of days (luckily) before it started to feel a lot less oily and also breakouts stopped happen quite as regularly. My face also feels so much softer and looks brighter - people have even been commenting on it which has never happened to me before! Unlike some skincare products, it doesn't have that horrible 'fake' smell and doesn't feel heavy when applying. It sinks easily and quickly into skin without 'sitting' for ages.

The Spot Treatment is amazing and I have no idea what I did or used before it! The tube is perfect to use, with it being a small opening you only get the amount of product you need. It is quite a runny formula, but this means that a little goes a long way and this is sure to last a while! What's more, this treatment actually works and I mean fast! It reduces redness along with size until the spot has completely disappear without a trace - not dark spots are left here! One thing I love about this spot treatment, is that it doesn't leave your face feeling greasy or take forever to dry, it's quick and easy to use.

Two amazing skincare products that I fully enjoy using and have made an incredible difference to my skin - gone is the excess oil and pesky breakouts!

  2. I've never heard of this brand before but it sounds really good. I'll definitely be looking into the spot treatment, as I always break out once a month, bang on cue (the joys of being female!). Great post, and really pretty photos too.
