Hello lovelies as some of you might know I love trying new skin care products and am always trying to perfect my skin care routine... Unfortunately my search has been extensive and my results mediocre. Upon discovering the brand skinstitute I did some research and quickly discovered that most of the reviews were very positive, so I thought bugger it I am going to give it a try. A week later my parcel arrived and I was so excited to try out the products. I got a glycolic cleanser and a scrub.

The scrub has a grainy texture but doesn't feel scratchy, they don't really have a bad smell although you can smell the glycolic ingredient but it's not unpleasant. 

Here is a swatch of the scrub as you can see the consistency is lumpier than the cleanser ( below ) but all you do is wet your face and then apply a pea size amount (a little goes a long way!) in circular motions and rinse, same applies to cleanser.

Additional products I use include

e.l.f zit zapper for those small white heads or emerging pimps. I picked it up at Kmart for $3 so I thought even of it isn't great it wouldn't hurt to try I was actually pleasantly surprised with how good it is. I use it just one the top of each pimple just before bed and they rapidly reduce over night. Also I love that it is a roller ball applicator.

Garniers dark spot corrector is one of my favourite drugstore moisturisers not only does it fade dark spots and blemishes but I found that it also leaves my skin feeling really soft. I even mix it in with my foundation when I want a light coverage or am working out.

My high end moisturiser is benefits total moisture facial cream it is a thick consistency and deeply moisturises. In a previous post I mentioned that I really wanted it and for Christmas last year I asked Santa and he was very kind and gave it to me 😀 the only down to this product is if your skin is oily i wouldn't recommend. I have combination skin and find that I can only use it when my skin is in desperate need of moisture. 

Do you guys have any favourite skin care products? Let me know in the comment section below
