A trip into Boots ...

Unfortunatley this weekend I came down with a nasty dose of food poisoning( for some reason I always get ill) so my skin was suffering for some reason I'm not sure why or if it's even related. but I seem to of had a huge breakout does anyone else find they get bad skin when they are ill?  
Back story aside I went into boots with the hope of finding something to clear up my skin problems and you know how it goes it's 3 for 2 and you have to take full advantage. 
Here's a glimpse into what I picked up. 

Soap and Glory Dr Spot- £8.00  This looked an interesting spot treatment which contains salicylic acid and lactic acids to refine pores and a blend of irritant soothers and redness reducers. What I really like is that it's invisible and drys quickly so it can be re-applied and popped under make up. 
So far so good but I'll let you know how I find it in a few days.  Now I do have one gripe with the packaging of Dr Spot and that is that it looks a little bit like bonjela that you put on sore gums. The gel also comes out really fast so your left with a lot of gooey mess. 

Soap and Glory Glow job - £11.00  This is a product marketed as a morning moisture flash that adds a hint of self-tan to the face... pefect for Spring. You massage the white pearlescent cream onto the face so that the microbronzeburst beads pop so your left with a subtle glow. This leaves a lovely healthy sheer glow whilst moisturising the skin. I think it will be just perfect for 'no-make up' days and good skin days. I think I had this a few years back and really enjoyed it but I do think it's since been re-packaged. Again I'm not too keen on the packaging because it reminds me of toothpaste are we noticing a pattern? but it's whats on the inside that counts . 

Garnier Micellar cleansing water - £4.99   Now I'm not going to dwell to much on this purchase because I have another post planned for a comparison between the Bioderma and Garnier micellar waters.  But the premise is very similar it's a water that gently melts away the make up so the skin is left clean and refreshed.
