Neutrogena Spot Clearing Face Wash and Oil Free Moisturiser

I decided to buy a different face wash and moisturiser as my skin was breaking out which always happens at this time of year for me. I opted for the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Clearing Facial Wash because it contained 2% Salicylic acid which I know helps with spots as it unclogs pores.
I then also got the Oil Free Moisturiser which states that it hydrates, smooths and evens out skin tone.

Starting with the face wash this was on offer but it is currently around £4.49 from Asda and at Superdrug. It does say on the front that this is developed with dermatologists. This is also oil free and is 'a concentrated, yet gentle daily cleanser. It suggests to use this twice daily in the morning and at night.

The moisturiser at £4.50 is also dermatologist tested and also to be applied morning and night on freshly cleansed skin. I have been using this after the facial wash.

Since using both these products it has helped improve my skin. I have far less breakouts and my face feels super clean after using the wash. The moisturiser  is in a small tube but it is lasting me well! My skin feels incredibly soft after using it and it's nice and lightweight and does even the skin a little. These are super cheap too and I am definitely going to stick to these for a bit,

Nivea Men Post Shave Balm as a PRIMER

I am absolutely LOVING using this Nivea Men Post Shave Balm as a Primer. I came across this thanks to Nikkie Tutorials who is an amazingly talented make up artist!

In her video she talks about how she had ran out of her primer and moisturiser and noticed that her boyfriend had this and  so decided to give it a try and  after using this it  makes her makeup last ALL day.

I have never really found a primer that I liked so I never use to prime. As this product is really cheap at £3.00 at Asda at the moment, there was no arguing that I was going to try it.

When using this it is very 'liquidy' as Nikkie states and comes out quite quick so you need to be careful! It also does smell like 'man' but that soon goes once it is absorbed into the skin. It applies nice and cool and on the box it says that it 'alleviates skin redness and dryness' and 'reduces skin sensitivity' and 'skin will feel comfortable and smooth' 

This definitely makes my make up last, it's amazing! I don't think I would not be able to not use this now. My skin also feels incredibly soft after using and my skin doesn't become so oily throughout the day. I also like the coolness it has, it is quite refreshing. My foundation looks really good and I notice a difference if I haven't used this.

For £3.00 you really cam't beat this and I recommend to give it a try if you can.
