nspa Skincare for Oily Skin

Thursday, 3 September 2015

Hello Beauties! I'm constantly banging on over here about my oily/acne prone skin and the skincare products which I've found to be brilliant and maybe not so brilliant, and today I'm back to share with you the latest collection of skincare I've been using to try and banish the oil.

nspa Fresh Apple & Zesty Lime Face Wash

When it comes to cleansers, I'm pretty picky. I have a select few which I like, but I've never really found anything which I've loved, so I was hoping that this was going to change that fact. Firstly, I could hardly review this without mentioning the scent at least once. The whole range carries the 'fresh apple and zesty lime' scent, and I absolutely love it. It's very citrusy and fresh, which works really well first thing in the morning when you need that little extra something to perk you up. The formula is quite thin and runny which I found odd for a gel, but it foamed up nicely and left my skin feeling fresh and clean. I probably wouldn't rely on it to wash my makeup off, but for a second cleanse it does the job. I didn't notice any real change in my skin or my breakouts when using this, so I'm not so sure of it's claims to control oil and reduce breakouts, but like I said, for a second cleanse it's perfectly fine. Overall, I liked this, but I didn't love it, as I noticed no real change in the look and feel of my skin.

nspa Fresh Apple & Lime Face Scrub

I love exfoliators and scrubs, I probably use them way too much, but I really can't get enough of the stuff. I do however find that my skin is very sensitive to them, so I have to be careful which ones I use on my skin. At first, I loved this scrub...it smelled great, it felt like it was doing something and my skin felt smooth after using it, however I found out pretty soon that my skin didn't love this as much as I first thought, which is usually the case with scrubs. Unfortunately, this was a little too much for my over sensitive skin and I came out in a bumpy rash, but if you're not so sensitive, then I'd definitely give it a go.

nspa Fresh Apple & Lime Moisture Cream

Although my skin is oily, it's also dehydrated. This means that when picking a moisturiser, I have to use something with both controls the oil but also hydrates my skin, which is no easy task let me tell you. I did like this moisturiser though, it didn't sit on top of my skin or leave my skin feeling greasy, and it did help reduce the tight feeling of my dehydrated skin a little. However for me it didn't really do enough to beat my Clinique Moisture Surge, which is a shame as I was hoping to save a few pennies!

Overall, I did like the range, I just didn't love it, which isn't really enough to make me repurchase the products. I think if your skin is only slightly oily or combination and not as problematic as mine then this will probably work well for you, but if you're skin is difficult like mine then it may be worth investing in your skincare a little more.

Lots of Love,
