Double Review: Dream Fresh BB Cream + 3 Step Skincare System

Hello lovely!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been trying out a handful of beauty products lately; skincare, makeup and a few things out of my comfort zone. I love playing around, experimenting and perhaps finding great products.

I have quite sensitive skin and it doesn't accept everything that is applied on it, which is a little bit of hardwork but a treat to you guys since I'll be reviewing what has worked for me and what hasn't.

Let's start... 


The Dream Fresh BB Cream by Maybelline 







This was actually in my June monthly favourites but I'm officially crossing it off my list. The BB cream and I have been in an on and off relationship for a few months now, I've loved it for a while in June and started applying it everyday, I loved the way it felt on my skin, how fresh my skin would feel after applying it and the fact that it was a great way to ditch heavy foundation. It blended with my concealer very well but a lot of times, it would start getting cakey on my skin and I often blamed the heat. I was breaking out a lot and again blamed the heat or the unhealthy foods I've had. My mum told me to go back to my old makeup routine, so I did. And well, my skin started getting a lot better. I don't know if it's just me and my skin type because I know a lot of people really love this product, but if you've been breaking out more than usual, give your skin a break away from the BB cream and let me know how that works for you! 


The 3-Step Skincare System by Clinique 






The 3-Step Skincare System, made to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise, also created for 2 very different skin types, has been working amazingly on my skin. I've read a lot of reviews, some complaining and some completely raving about how much they've loved this package. So basically, this can be really good or just pricey liquid depending on your skin. I haven't included the moisturiser because it wasn't with me at the time and I have not been using the 3-steps all together, but I can tell you the moisturiser hasn't disappointed anyone yet. It feels great on the skin with a formula made to be absorbed flawlessly by all skin types. 

Onto cleansing and exfoliating! I have been breaking out like I said, and these two bottle of goodness have been great to my skin. Here's a little information: You get a lot of bacteria and germs on your skin, precisely around your spots and it is easily spreaded all over your face, which makes getting rid of spots double the time and effort. These two steps cleanse your face and get rid of bacteria and germs as much as it possibly can, the exfoliation can sting a little bit but it really does clean up your face, preventing your spots from coming back and healing them a whole lot faster. I've definitely loved using them and I will be repurchasing.


For both my reviews, that's how the products have worked for me and my skin type and everyone would have a different opinion as well as a different result.

Have you tried these products? If you have, how did you like them? Give me a little review down in the comments! 

I hope you enjoyed this post, and if you've noticed, I've been posting a lot more lately, if you want me to continue, please leave a comment below! 

Also, if you have any requests, any questions, anything you'd like advice on, please leave me a little message on my ask right here and I'd happily respond!

Until next time,
xoxo,
