Cheaper alternative to clinique clarifying lotion no. 2
Hi Just that really. I don't stick to the whole 3-step thing but I do find that a quick swish of no.2 clarifying lotion especially on my chin keeps my occasional spots at bay and leaves my skin clearer.
I'm just getting to the bottom of a huge bottle, but I really can't justify buying another right now for financial reasons. Is there a similar type toner or lotion which would do a similar job for less pennies? Preferably a high street or supermarket option too for ease of purchase! I have tried a 'toner' (can't remember which brand) but it wasn't quite astringent enough?
These Clearasil pads are good. Recommended by Caroline Hirons (skincare blogger). They have salicylic acid in them. I have normal/dry skin so only use them if I have a breakout as they're a bit drying, but great for dealing with spots!
