Bravura London Lovin'

My skin isn't the happiest bunny at the moment. The cold weather is causing my skin to breakout and be uber dry- not ideal!

When I received this package I breathed a sigh of relief- finally, some help! I started off by using the ginseng toner after removing my make-up. My everyday moisturiser is ginseng and there's something about having matching skincare that's oddly satisfying. It was gentle and carried a very light scent. 

After applying the toner I moved onto the scary bit- the acids. I received Salicylic Acid (2%) and also Lactic Acid (10%), the Salicylic Acid is far weaker than the Lactic Acid so I used it on my forehead as it would target the spots without drying out the skin too much. Next I used the Lactic Acid, this is a very drying and strong formula so I used it on my blackheads. I found the Salicylic Acid was my favourite of the two as the results were evident the next day but I think the lactic acid will take a few weeks, and treatments, to be effective.

After washing off the acid after leaving it on for about 15-20 minutes I used the Hydraluronic Acid Serum which is a gel like serum that you apply all over your skin to add moisture- this was ok. It wasn't great, it wasn't bad. 

The last step was using the moisturiser, I thought the casing was gorgeous so had high hopes but was a bit let down. I found it rather sticky.

I recommend the ginseng toner if you want a refreshing make-up removal treat and also the Salicylic acid if you have problem skin but don't want a harsh treatment.
