Review: Hey Gorgeous Skincare

I have struggled most of my adult life with problem skin. Sometimes minor hormonal breakouts and other times with painful and unsightly cystic acne which can be a real confidence killer.  I have tried lots of different skincare regimes, supplements and even been on Roaccutane a number of times. Nothing I’ve ever tried has ever really provided a long term solution.

After seeing a few posts about Hey Gorgeous on Instagram, I thought I’d give it a try. My skin had been going through a particularly bad patch and I felt like I had nothing to lose.  I’ve been using the Activated Charcoal Cleanser (R220), Banish & Repair Serum (R330) and the Banish & Repair Moisturiser (R250) twice a day for almost two months now.  It’s important to give a new skincare regime at least 6 weeks before you judge its efficacy and to allow a full turnover of your skin-cells to occur.

While my skin is not completely blemish free, I have noticed a significant improvement in my skin. The breakouts seem to be less severe and clear much quicker than they did previously. I’ve also noticed improved texture. Having oily skin, I was always hesitant to use anything resembling oil – it just seemed counter productive. As it turns out, the correct oils (read non-comedogenic or non pore clogging) are really beneficial.

I’ll definitely continue using the Hey Gorgeous range, next on the shopping list will be a toner, scrub and a mask. I’ll be sure to update this post in a few weeks with any new developments with my skin 🙂
