I didn't use my foundation, and then went straight to a face wash, to clean out my pores, from whatever had cause this reaction.
So, I went and got back to my favourite face wash is Benefit Cosmetics Foamingly clean. Yeah, yeah, ANOTHER Benefit product, but this is the only one I have found which I love!
I used to use St Ives Apricot Scrub regular, but it bits annoy bit, then I tried No7, Liz Earle and other brands, but this is the one I always go back to.
The Foaminly Clean product is a white, creamy fash wash, which I rub all over, then wash off with warm water.
Afterwards my face feels clean, which is the aim, it feels smooth and nice. Nice is good, as it was horrible to start with.
Foamingly Clean builds up a good lather and gets all the dirt out from pores.
My face dries up all the oil, no need for a toner and it is soothed a little.
Benefit Cosmetics are expensive, I will say it is an expensive obsession, but this is great working and has lasted since April! At £17.50 Foamingly Clean is is way over a normal face wash price, but I will 100% buy this again, once it runs out! honestly, the best I have used.
If you'd like to test it out first, there is a set of minis available of the skincare for £14.50 here.
