The Products I Use When My Skin Is Having A Freak Out!

I am quite lucky because most of the time my skin is pretty clear so I don’t have to do a lot to maintain it but every time ‘that time of month’ comes around my skin decides to have a major freak out. I am sure there are some of you ladies that feel my pain so here are the products I use and the steps I take which miraculously changed my skin entirely! And the main product I would like to talk about is the Pilaten Black Head Nose Strip but I shall elaborate on that further into the post.


First of all you will need a clean face, I use the Superdrug Tea Tree Facial Wash, I highly recommend this product if you have oily/combination skin. Not only does it fight against spots but it is very gentle on your skin!

I then go on to use my Black Head Pilaten Nose Strip. But not just for my nose! This nose strip comes out in a liquid form and is enough to cover your whole face so I thought I would give it a go using it as a face peel. Brave I know! You do have to be patient on waiting for the peel to completely dry as it is quite thick in consistency.

Once fully dried I then peel it off and honestly my skin feels so amazing after using this and I can really feel like all the gunk has come out of my skin! This feeling lasts for days so it helps prevent future breaks out too!


After peeling the face peel off I then use the Clean & Clear Deep Cleansing Lotion. I pour it onto the cotton pad and gently cleanse my face. I take this next step because when you have stripped your pores from gunk you need to put something back in it as the pore has been opened and when they are at that state dirt and bacteria can easily get in.

I go on to using my Clean & Clear Shine Control moisturiser. Again this is perfect for oily/combination as it is light, doesn’t clog your pores and it also prevents your skin for getting oily which is a bonus for me as most moisturisers make my oily skin worse! I then use my Witch Doctor Gel on any spots left. I take this step last because the gel works best when it is dabbed on and not rubbed in.


This is my skin after taking all these steps and tips. See how clear it is? Crazy right?

Thank you for reading my post and I hope I have helped some of you with those troublesome spots!

Take care

Witch Doctor Gel Review

So I have been using this Witch Doctor gel for the past year.

It is advertised to treat itching, insect bites, stings, sunburn etc. But with it having witch hazel in it,which most of us know is brilliant for spot prone skin, I thought I would try it on my spots and it honestly works wonders!

Unlike most spot treatments I have used it does not dry out your skin, it brings down redness dramatically and it has got rid of some of my spots over night! I honestly can not live without this product now and it is a part of my daily skin care routine.

If you have spot prone skin or suffering with acne especially cystic acne I urge you to try this out. I have suffered from cystic acne myself and it has honestly changed my skin completely.
