Super Facialist Anti-Blemish Skincare Review

For most of 2017, I struggled as my skin started to change and all of a sudden I was experiencing blemishes, mainly across my forehead. I definitely had to come to the realisation that as I am getting older my skin is definitely changing and that I would have to change my skincare routine. I decided at the beginning of this year to build a new skincare routine by trying new products and the first being by Super Facialist. 

As a teenager, I experienced acne and it was quite severe, all over my cheeks. I eventually found that less was more and found that by keeping my skincare routine simply I was able to clear my acne and all the dark marks that it caused. I continued to use the routine until I had Ky and again my skin changed from all the hormones caused by pregnancy. Since then I have struggled to find what works well. 

What is Super Facialist?

A skincare range that combines natural extracts, scientific ingredients and wonderful aromas.They have 6 collections that can address specific skin concerns and needs.

The collections are as follows:

Rose – For Hydration

Vitamin C – For Radiance Boosting/ Brightening

Retinol – For Anti-Ageing

Pure – For Sensitive Skin

Hyaluronic Acid – For Firming

Salicylic Acid – For Anti Blemish

My thoughts on the Salicylic Acid Range

The Anti Blemish range is meant to deliver solutions to combat skin breakouts and oiliness. Without the harshness that some anti-blemish products can cause. The products in the range contain both Salicylic Acid and Niacin (Vitamin B3) which can help give you a clearer and healthier complexion. They are also SLES and Paraben free.

The products in this range are:

Purifying Cleansing Wash  RRP £7.99

Purify and Refresh Facial Scrub RRP £8.99

Pore Purifying Clay Mask RRP £9.99

Anti Blemish Clear and Correct Serum RRP £16.99

For the last 6 weeks I have been using both the Purifying Cleansing Wash and Pore Purifying Clay Mask. I have say that I absolutely love both products. My skin is smoother and my breakouts have somewhat diminished. The smell of both of these products are lovely especially the Cleansing Wash which is infused with Elderflower. My oiliness is also not as bad which is great because prior to using these products it looked like I had gone overboard with the moisturiser within a few hours of washing my face! Also I do notice a tingling sensation when I first apply the Clay mask but within a couple minutes as it starts to dry, the sensation disappears. I also like that the clay mask is easy to rinse off. And it doesn’t leave any residue like many other face masks I have tried before.

I would definitely recommend these products to anyone who is struggling with getting their blemishes under control and also if you suffer from really oily skin.

Over the coming months I will be trying and reviewing other Super Facialist’s products from the Vitamin C, Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid collections.

Have you tried any products from Super Facialist’s collections? If so how did you find them?

Goals for My 35th Year |

Goals For My 35th Year

It’s that time again! My birthday was a few weeks ago, so with that being said it’s time to set myself new goals for my 35th year!

If you read my post from last year, you will be familiar with the new tradition I have started! Each year on my birthday I will set myself at least 10 goals to be completed over the next 365 days!

So for here are my 10 new goals for my 35th Year!


Last year I wanted to travel more but with moving and starting a new job, travelling was the last thing on my mind! This year I would really like to do more European or UK City weekend breaks. I AM also booking to go to my Brother’s wedding which will take place in October 2017. I also hope to finally visit my cousin in Germany during October Half term.

Lose Weight

My aim is to lose 2 stones! I know this is quite a big feat but I think with hard work and determination I can definitely achieve this goal. I really worked on my diet last year, which I am still in the process of refining. The goal this year, is to increase my physical activity. As per last year the goal is to do more exercise!! Currently I AM in the process of looking for a good gym that doesn’t cost much to join!


There is a lot of decorating to be done in our new place. So I will be working on trying to complete as much as possible.  I AM planning on finishing Ky’s room first and then mine! Then I will work on the front room/dining room and hallway. I’m not planning to rush so I know it maybe a couple of years before everything is exactly how I want it!

Successful Business

I started to work on this goal last year but due to moving and starting a new job, I was unable to complete it. However I have been busy the last few months trying to make this happen. I have completely changed the business, including branding and the services we will be offering. All I need to do now is to finish the website (which I am currently working on) and get promoting! I know that having a successful business can take some time so I AM prepared for this goal to be a continued work in progress!

12 Books in 12 Months

Last year my goal was to read more, this year the goal is simple, to read 12 books in 12 months. Due to this post being nearly a month late, I am already halfway through my 1st book! Not a bad start, methinks!

Clear Braces

After having Ky, my teeth really suffered and I had to have a number of fillings. It is believed that some women suffer loss of calcium when pregnant. Some of these fillings have been hard for the dentist to fill, as some of my teeth slightly overlap. My dentist suggested that by getting my teeth straightened it would make it easier for him to completely fix some of my holes properly. He also stated that I should have been given braces when I was younger!! Not impressed as my original dentist told me my teeth where fine! Anyway I have been told it’s the best treatment for me and I AM hoping to have them fitted before my next birthday.

Graphic Design Course

Another goal that has been rolled over from last year! My main reason for not being able to enrol on the course as yet, has been due to finances and other things taking a priority. The course is extremely expensive but I AM staying positive that I will be able to enrol on the course by August next year.

Saving More

I don’t really feel this needs any real explanation. I would like to save more not just for myself but also for Ky. I have saving accounts for us both but I would like to make regular deposits for us both.

Saying Yes More

As I get older, I AM staring to want to try more new things. Now this may be a new skill or hobby or even going to different types of events that I may not have considered before. I AM always telling Ky to try new things and so I believe I should lead by example! So this goal is about saying yes to trying new things and experiences!

Do you set personal goals for yourself on or around your birthday? If you do share them with me and let me know what you plan to achieve in 365 days!

New Vlog: Missing in Action

Hey Guys,

Sorry we have been missing in action but we have been so busy settling into our new home and I have also recently started a new job! So life has become a new kind of juggling act.

In this vlog we go shopping and out to eat, where we have the unfortunate pleasure of being sat near to someone who used so much profanity while speaking to his date/girlfriend! And I await the arrival of my friends new baby!

Hope you enjoy! And don’t forget to subscribe to our vlog channel!

Peace and Love
