They're 3 for 2 just now & have been eyeing up the serum, day cream & night cream. I have pretty crap skin (patchy, dry, flaky, oily and spotty all at once - I have rosacea) & would love to find something that'll help tackle at least some of the above but even at 3 for 2 I'd still be looking at over £30 & don't want to pay that much to find they're rubbish. Boots don't do trial sizes so can anyone recommend them?
(I've posted this in products too btw as not sure where it would get the best response)
The woman in the shop I bought the Ren stuff from recommended still using the Liz Earle muslim cloth 'technique' so I do wonder whether that plus gentle products is the key.
Was already tempted by the protect and perfect serum, think will have to try now. Is just quite a lot to spend if didn't work, but only heard good things so think have gathered enough evidence to justify!
I had a look at the Liz Earle site & it was brilliant - there was a listing for rosacea in the skin concerns section & the recommended products even said why each product was good for rosacea! Have ordered the essentials pack so just have to break the news to dh
Will probably ask for the boots p&p serum for xmas now.
Hi Batters, yes use the Ren cleanser with th liz earle muslin cloth. I'm 30 but skin has definitely started to, ahem, age. The Ren stuff feels like it is actively doing something, I found the Liz Earle products great when my skin was good. But was having a blip, few spots, bit dry and grey (hmm, v attractive!)so the woman in shop (who was beauty therapist) recommended it. Been v pleased so far. Would still use liz earle stuff too though. Just felt my skin needed a pick me up, and it does feel tighter and looks a bit brighter now.
Avoid anything containing Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLS) - lathering agent that's in loads of stuff - irritant and gives you spots. I use this stuff - it's counterculture and goooooood - www.no-acne.com
ps i don't work for them - i just have nice skin now
OK don't laugh, but I tried Lidl's skincare range, and it is so good that when I stopped using it I noticed that my skin got worse. It feels really silky, and costs £1.99 a pot, I thin, but looks v.similar to the expensive creams. I use the day & night anti-wrinkle cream. I've recommended their range to friends who have also been impressed.
I have (ahem) 'mature' skin.
