How I got Clear Skin | SkinB5 Review

Having breakouts and acne can allow you to become anti-social. They can cause anxiety and in severe cases, depression. 
Not everyone goes through these stages, however everyone can prevent them.
In the past, I have reviewed many products to help prevent acne and breakouts. I love reviewing this topic, as I know its what helps the most. Having suffered from mild acne whilst growing up, it would change the way I would interact with others and it definitely changed my confidence levels.

I only review products and brands I believe in and I believe in SkinB5 (alongside my sister). 
They reached out to me not long ago and asked if I was willing to try their products free of charge. After doing my research on their brand, I jumped onto the bandwagon  not only for me, however my sister. My sister Sarah is going through a tough stage regarding her skin. She breaks out severely and this causes her pain at times. 
We both began trying SkinB5 4 months ago and have seen results come through. The brand has a few key products you can buy and use, however using 1 or 2 of their products only.. plays a powerful role as well. 

Their SkinB5 Acne Control Cleanser was used daily. Its role was to remove excess oil that was produced on your skin, which also removed the problem causing bacteria that was developed due to this.  What I liked about this cleanser, was that it didn't clog your pores, it was light weight and it got the job done. 
This range offered products that were all FREE of parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate and fragrances to only name a few! They got straight to the point and got the job done! 
The range also comes with Ace Control Extra Strength Tablets. These work and help on the inside, whilst you are treating the outside. They are formed to treat your  face and body acne. They also deliver vitamins and minerals to help keep your sin and body healthy and assist in healing your wounds caused by acne.

However my sister and I have agreed on our favourite product from the range. Their Skin Purifying mask became a hit in our household.  Its prime method was to soothe your skin whilst it was on the verge of renewing itself. It included avocado and  french green clay among other things. After arguing on who would keep the product in their bathroom, we agreed to share it due to its benefits. Because of my sister I also found out it was great for "colour correcting". The clay comes out as grey, however once dry, it becomes  a green tinge. This helps to colour correct your face and eliminate andy redness (which is amazing!) Once you apply it and once it dries on your spots, you can then go ahead and remove the excess and apply moisturizer. Once done, you can then go ahead with your makeup routine. 

Have you tried the brands products yet? I'm quite proud of the company as well, seeing as they're Australian Made :
Comment below your feedback!

Until next time...Keep Smiling

Good morning my Beauties!
Hope you are all enjoying your day!

I'm sitting in my office right now, I have a large coffee on my left side and a sneaky organic peanut butter spread on my right. I already somewhat feel accomplished, as these 2 foods give me energy to conquer the day!

I was lucky enough to be picked as one of 50 influencers selected to work with Cosmopolitan this year! I will be reviewing brands, test driving products and attending events to give you beauties a sneak peak! :) I'm so excited to be apart of this journey and cannot wait to tag you loves along!

My first mission was to review the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence!

Growing up, I always watched my mum using SK-II products. I remember the logo always being on her vanity, so this was not a difficult choice.

SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence has always had celebrities and makeup artists raving about the product. The product itself is a facial treatment that is enriched with vitamins, antioxidants and minerals, that are absorbed into your skin. Our skin goes through so much daily, let alone in its lifetime, so it’s so important to feed it back the nutrients it loses daily.

I always mention to you beauties, how it’s so important to create a Skincare routine. The answer is simple as to why you should add products like this to your daily routine. Growing up, our facial structure changes, when you're younger, your skin is much more firm and toned. Growing up, you need to prevent changes from occurring to a greater extent. The SK-II Facial treatment essence
targets signs of wrinkles, fine lines and uneven skin tone. It takes up a small portion of your skincare routine, however creates a greater impact.

How I use it is, I sprinkle a tiny bit on my clean palms, after patting my hands together, I then massage it through my face and neck. I create the motion of going in circles and "up and down". This evenly spreads the products onto my face. This also creates a perfect layer of skin to work on, which is what I love!

The first SK-II Facial Treatment Essence was introduced to the world in 1980. I cannot believe it's been a product on our shelves for that long, however that tells you something..doesn't it?!
One of its key ingredients is "Pitera". This is a blend of vitamins, amino acids and minerals that work together to allow the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process to function at its prime. This is what provides an age defying effect.

All this being said, I'm excited to share with you loves what SK-II is currently doing!
They have recently launched a new global campaign called #changedestiny. This is inspired by its commitment to empower women with the power of ageless skin and the confidence to shape
their destiny. Their campaign allows women to realize it's NEVER too early, or too late to take control of your destiny and achieve the beautiful skin you want!

If you have been following my YouTube channel for a while now, you would know I am a big advocate for women empowering one another and allowing ourselves to realize that our life choices depend on ourselves. What #changedestiny means to me, is that our future, our goals and our destiny ultimately are our choice. You have the power to change, or alter any part of your life. This gives me power knowing, that no one can take my goals or my dreams from me, and you should have that power too!

So what are you waiting for.. :) How are you going to #changedestiny ?

Hope you all have a beautiful day, until next time..

Keep Smiling
