OOTD: AllSaint/ AllSinner

Top: AllSaints
Shorts: H&M
Belt: Primark
Bag: Milli Millu (here)
Shoes: AllSaints
Sunglasses: Vans
Necklace: Accessorize

Probably not the most weather appropriate outfit considering it was incredibly hot on Wednesday but I needed an excuse to flash my new Milli Millu handbag which I am madly in love with. I was in desperate need of a new bag and a big one at that and this certainly fits the bill (Thanks Jay!)

If you haven't got yourself down AllSaints recently you may not now that sale has gone down to 70%! Generally I'm a huge sale snob as I hate having to rummage through racks of stuff chucked together not to mention its usually in sale because its out of season, but with AllSaints you can never really go wrong and the shops are always so pristine. I managed to get this top for the bargain price of £17.50...

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Skincare

I've begun to realise more recently that skin care products are my absolute weakness.. As much as I love my make-up when I'm shopping in boots or browsing online, It's skincare products that I home in on. Which may explain why (and I really don't mean to blow my own trumpet here) I seem to have healthy clear skin most of the time.

On one of more more recent trips to boots I went to pick up some more La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+, (which I've spoken about in a previous post here), as It's now a staple in my skin care collection. Without going on about it too much as its a widely renowned blogger favourite this is your best friend in a skin crisis. I had a break out a few weeks ago around my jawline and within 24 hours (I kid you not) It was pretty much already gone and after 2 days it was as if It was never there. I can't stress enough if this is not in your skin care collection then you need to go out immediately (after reading this post of course) and buy it. Like right now.

So yeah now that's out the way, I can tell you about the other products I found myself drawn to, the Astrigent Lotion Micro-Exfoliant and the Effaclar K Anti Relapse.

One of the main reasons I'm particularly fond of the Effaclar range in the first place is that it is designed for oily/combination skin, which I have, and not only this it seems to have something to tackle every little skin care issue.

I've been using the Astrigent Lotion after cleansing as advised as it claims to gently exfoliate, unclog and reduce the appearance of pores and eliminate any excess oils. These are all things that I definitely need in my life as my pores on my chin and nose in particular have been pretty clogged up recently (mmm fit).

The sciency bit as to how it can perform such miracles, is that it contains Lipo-hydroxy acid (LHA) which has been proven to exfoliate the skin and reduce inflammation so it's also great for things like acne, redness etc. And I have to say after only a short time of using this product I have really noticed the difference in my skin. It fees so much smoother and I've already seen pretty remarkable reductions in the size of my pores.

Next  I picked up the Effaclar K Anti Relapse which sounds pretty self explanatory, so it helps to maintain the up keep of your good skin, unclog and tighten your pores, reduce imperfections and smooth the skin. Essentially these products are like little godly skin miracles and they bloody work! My skin feels so much softer and the effects are almost instant.  This one also works great as a primer for make-up so I've mainly been using this in the morning after cleansing.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and you're all now off to go and buy everything from this range. As always please leave me a comment below, I love reading them and it's always great to hear you're thoughts. Also keep and eye out on future posts as I'm also doing a very small giveaway to thank you guys for helping me to reach 100 followers on bloglovin! A small milestone but a milestone none the less...
