I went into Superdrug about two weeks ago in NEED of something to ease my spots. Everyone goes through outbreaks, it’s just something that happens, however, mine happened to be red, lumps and sore so I searched the isles and found ‘witch anti-blemish redness relief moisturiser’. I must recommend this as almost instantly it stopped the throbbing and soothed my skin. Everyone that knows anything about spots will know that witch hazel is a God sent, and witch contains plenty. You simply place a little blob to the directed area and rub it in, it starts out a bright green colour which was a little scary at first, but then it changes to neutral as you rub it in. The green in the cream makes the redness go down immediately.

The only problem that I could find with this cream is that it left the area shiny, which as well all know when we have spots, we want to hide them, not draw attention to them shining on our faces. However, I solved this easily by using it overnight then wiping my face in the morning with cleansing wipes.

This is the Rimmel London match perfection foundation witch I bought from Superdrug about two months ago. As I had reasonably tanned skin from the good weather in England (Hurrah!) I choose to go for the soft beige colouring.

What I like about this foundation is that it has an APF of 18, which means that when you go out in the sun you don’t have to put sun cream on your face (unless you’re somewhere really hot!). When I apply it I put a small bit on my hand and use a soft sponge to apply it all over my face. Firstly I was shocked about how orange it came out! For such a well known brand and a ‘match perfection’ which means that it should match your skin colourings, my face had turned a tanned shade of orange, which is not attractive. As you can see from the picture I haven’t used much of it since! However, because it is a brand name and cost me quite a bit (I can’t remember exactly), I tried it again one night when I was going out and I must say it worked much better. I think that this matches your skin tone then slightly darkens it to make you look more tanned, which on a night out is a good look, but not just for a day out.

Overall, I would only recommend this if you prefer a foundation that is slightly darker than your own skin tone.
