Top Skincare Products for Problem Skin

As a teenager I had awful acne and although my skin seems to have improved slightly as I've got older, I am still prone to breakouts. Generally I find my skin flares up most when I am tired or stressed, so a good night's sleep is one of the top healers for my skin. I have also found that exercising more has improved my skin. However, when my skin is suffering these are the products I go to for help...

Skinetica ~ Skinetica is a scientifically developed acne treatment that works like a toner. It is a clear, scent free liquid that can either be applied directly to spots or all over the face. It is very gentle on the skin and doesn't have any side effects such as tingly skin. Once it has dried you're free to put moisturiser or make-up on over the top. It calms down my skin and reduces the size of large spots. £9.50 available online

Dr Organic Dead Sea Mineral Bio-plasma Mud Mask ~ I got this in my Latest in Beauty Party Prep Box and am in love with it! I've been using it every week. This is a detoxing and anti-ageing treatment that contains dead sea mineral salt, aloe vera, mint, Vitamin C and all sorts of other lovely goodness. It tingles when I apply it on my skin, which helps me to know it's working, then dries into a clay mask. When I was it off my skin looks a lot clearer and enlarged pores have disappeared. This is excellent value at just £7.99, available from Holland & Barrett. 

Origins Super Spot Remover ~ This little bottle is very powerful and has been raved about by bloggers for a long time. It is an award winning product and I can see why. This on-the-spot treatment gel heals spots quickly and diminish any redness. It is a little pricey at £15 but definitely worth it for targeted treatment. Available online or from Origins counters.

Elemis Herbal Lavender Repair Mask ~ Often my skin might not necessarily be spotty, just a bit hormonal and congested. If you suffer with similar skin problems then this is ideal. It contains rosemary, thyme and lavender which re-balance and purify the skin. Best suited to sallow and congested skin types. It can be used on the whole face, as a quick fix or as an overnight spot treatment . £29 but can be found cheaper online!

Have you tried any of these products before? What are your favourite spot treatments?


  1. The Elemis Herbal Lavender Repair Mask is one my favourite products and it really helped me skin, unfortunately the price tag is enough to put people off and it does stop me repurchasing it, which is a huge shame because I love it so much!

    1. Yes it is very expensive so I'm trying to use it sparingly as I don't think I'll be able to repurchase it! x

  2. Great post :) I absolutely love Skinetica! I swear by this when my skins having it's bad days. I also need to get my hands on a mud mask, apparently they're good for blackheads too which I suffer horribly from :( ! x

    1. Thank you :) it is great and oddly I had never heard about it until a blog event last year. There are lots of masks out that are good for blackheads :) x

  3. I love Elemis stuff but this post is very helpful for the likes of me!

  4. I'm wanting to try more masks this year and as my skin gets quite congested I think that mask would be perfect!!
