Spots, why? What is the point of them?!
Before my last year of Uni, nearly three years ago now, my skin was great. I’ve always had blemishes and redness in my face but spots were not something I had to really worry about, that was until a few years ago. I don’t know what actually happened, or if anything did happen, but my skin just changed.
Every time I would get rid of a spot a new one would pop up from nowhere, and this had been nonstop for about three years now. I know my bestie Halpin will be reading this thinking “I’ve told you, don’t use make up wipes” and that’s true, she has, many times. I also read Sali Hughes’ book Pretty hurts, in this her friend told her wet wipes should only be used for three things: Fannies, Festivals and Flights.
So I decided to listen, something that I’m sure many people would say is a rarity. It was a big changed for me, after all I have used wet wipes since I started using make up, which was probably about 10 years ago (I know, I don’t look old enough, we start young in the Valleys!!).
So at the back of my mind hearing ‘Fannies, festivals and flights’ and seeing Halpins ridiculous skincare routine every time she stays over, I thought it was time to take note and make some changes.
I stumbled upon the product that has changed my skin; I wasn’t looking for it. I was just doing my usual thing, watching Youtube and catching up on Instagram and everyone seemed to be raving about this new cleanser.
When there’s a new trend, it normally comes with a hefty price tag – I’m thinking Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kits, anyone from the UK who bought into the hype like me would have had a huge export and delivery cost with it! Ouch. However, this time it wasn’t and I was so, so, so pleasantly surprised.
So what am I talking about exactly? It’s Garnier cleansing water. It comes in a bloody huge bottle (400ml) and looks like water. *Now wondering if it is and all is a big money making placebo effect?!?!* … But seriously, it’s great. I’m converted. Wet wipes have not been anywhere near my face for over a month, and boy have I noticed a difference.
I use this every day, well in the night to be specific. Instead of removing my make up with wipes after I shower, I add a little of the water to a cotton pad, I normally use about 3 pads a night, maybe more if I’ve got a shit tone of make up on (if you know me, you’ll know this can be often).
For those of you still on the wet wipe bandwagon, put them down, stop! Use your last ones up at Glastonbury and make a tiny investment of £3.99 you wont regret it!
