Uneven skintone on face - No. 7 Beauty Serum or Bio Oil?

Combination skin.

Uneveness is over bridge of nose and cheeks.

Skin is okay whilst pregnant but otherwise prone to spotting.

A bit of tautness under and around eyes but no real wrinkles - I am 37.

I have a choice between the two but can't decide which to go for.

Any experiences IRL?

Laser resurfacing?

I wish!

I can't comment about the no 7 vs bio oil, but it sounds like we have similar, I have combination skin, but with the tautness you describe.

I've found that with olay total effects (off ebay when I'm skint) or philosophy hope in a jar (when I'm feeling flush) I don't get it.

I would go with the No. 7. It's the Vit. A in it that exfoliates in a dramatic way. Expat, I would use No. 7 under your normal light moisturizer, and use Neal's yard White Tea eye gel under your eyes. I get slightly dry under eyes, but a lot of eye creams are too rich and give me spots. And in this heat, keep the gel in the fridge. Nice to have a thrill every morning, however small wink.

all the Oil of Olay i have tried has made me spotty.

i do have some Boots points to use up so am trying to decide between the two.

would have tried the Aldi stuff, but there's no Aldi in this country except over 100 miles away and so i'd rather stick with something i know i can always get my hands on.

great idea, 2loudboys!

i have a can of Evian in the fridge and the girls are enjoying spritzing it on their faces.
