After cleansing your face with Paula’s Choice skin balancing cleanser and applying the fabulous Skin balancing toner (review to come shortly) You apply this magic non sticky, light weight gel over your face and then finish with Paula’s choice skin balancing gel.

This exfoliater gel glides on to the skin so easily, penetrating and minimising pores. I have noticed how clean and smooth my skin looks, I apply it either daily or every two days and it has worked wonders for me. I don’t break out as much and my pores seem minimised. This formula is also known to work well on acne scaring and is helps to eliminate any redness. The fragrance free gel contains Salicylic acid which is known for its natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties which also helps to Stimulates collagen production for firmer, younger-looking skin.

This product really is amazing for keeping your skin in check. My skin is bright, clean and smooth. I very rarely break out and when I do they are practically gone the very next day. I find it very easy to use as it’s a gel you put on under your moisturiser, not a daily scrub you have to use 3 times a week. It makes my daily routine much easier knowing that I am getting the benefits of an exfoliator everyday. I  recommend this product to teenagers who have a hormonal skin. I’m sure this will work wonders to clear up your skin and have it looking fresh in no time.

lime and gonger

This product is Spa heaven, it really is. I try and use it at least twice a week but recently I have run out and not stocked up. It’s deffinatly showing on my skin.

Exotic lime and ginger salt glow contains the most yummy ingredients. Ginger which stimulates the metabolism and is good for toning up those stretch marks, Lime peel to energize, cleanse and purify the skin. Other great ingrediants include Sea salt, Jojoba oils, kukui and camellia all helping to regain moisture back into the skin and leaving it silky smooth. The texture of this scrub is quite grainy and oily so I recommend gentle exfoliation in circular motions. It works wonder on the legs and arms leaving them with a lovely shine when your done. Only downer with this product is that is does not come with any kind of exfoliating mit, so when your in the shower and want to apply it can sometimes run away with the shower water, I personally use this product with a moisture glove, Rubbing a small amount on to the glove and applying it to my desired body part in circular motion. It works a treat!

Ladies who suffer from those terrible in-growing hair from shaving, this product really can help.

….. it does exactly that!!!

My combination skin can be a pain in the ass. Now im no expert but we all know that if you have combination skin a good exfoliator is needed. Me.. I have the oily T-zone area and occasionally the odd pimple pops up to say ‘hey’ if I have neglected the exfoliating regime.

My skin was looking overly grey, dull and clogged up. Ive been using this for 2 weeks now exfoliating 3 times a week, It’s amazing. The jojoba Micro beads are nice and gentle on your face, unlike other exfoliators that feel like hot tar is burning off the top layer of your skin. It also contains wild harvested seaweed, leaving my skin feeling bright, condition and best of all.. smooth like a baby’s bottom.

If you guys have the ‘Winter skin blues’ you know where to pick yourself up one of these its £7.30 but currently on offer and £5.30 in certain stores.
