So my mums friend works at Guerlain in John Lewis, she is highly trained when working with cosmetics and she has companies like YSL and Chanel under her belt and retail experience. Luckily for my mum she receives a lot of testers and also gifts that my mums friend has purchased for her in the past whether it be for Birthdays and Christmas.
My mum has left her Guerlain facial illuminating facial scrub by the side of the bath which is such a big NO,NO when I'm at home as i love trying out new products and finding something that really works for my skin, and as it means I'm not having to purchase it.. I'm going to use it/ steal it.
So i have really bad problems with my skin my skin swells a lot, especially my nose. My nose gets skin infections every week and will swell to a sore pressure point, this really affects my confidence and I've had various appointments with doctors where i have been diagnosed various skin illnesses and i have also had blood tests which didn't help anything at all! I am well and truly giving up. Which is why I'm always willing to try products to see how this would help my skin.
The Guerlain facial scrub is a really gentle scrub with micro beads inside, and the gel is a shimmering light gold which helps laminate your skin keeping it looking healthy and glowing. When i first tried this face scrub i was worried as it is perfumed and i thought this may interact with my skin and cause me to have yet ANOTHER REACTION!
Well I've been using it for a couple of days now and its worked really well for me.. i don't exfoliate everyday i do it every other day and in-between i will simply wash my face day/night with just a dove soap bar which helps keep my face nice and soft.. and also cleansed without any harsh chemicals and thats really working for me right now!
I also dry my hair at my mums dressing table, as well as moisturise and all that jazz, i noticed a huge bottle of Gerulain cleansing and illuminating cream which is a really silky soft, perfumed cream which really does lift the skin and i apply this when i have used the exfoliant facial wash the great thing about the cream is it has a pump dispenser which makes it last a lot longer and keeps you limited without wasting cream because you've squeezed out too much . My mum probably won't be too impressed when she finds out, but at least my skin is reacting well! I just love finding products that work well for me, however my bank account surly does not!!
