Part of the NORMADERM range with has been a blessing for my oily skin which obviously means clearer skin and less blemishes.
This is in a gel format with tiny beads to help cleanse and lift makeup or tough skin so that it encourages excellent cell turnover for your skin.
The gel amost smells like tea tree oil, I had a fight with that particular line of treatment and it didn't go well but this is not pure tree tea and it softer and kinder on the skin yet hits those pesky skin problems and removes them.
I used this over a period of three weeks and saw a brilliant change in the overall tone, look and feel of my skin. I believe it was using various products from the NORMADERM range altogether. Over time, the products help reduce and I hardly saw any shine on my skin which meant no spots I couldn't believe it. This works. Again for me, maybe its different with each skin, I saw a better difference when used as a whole range.
This is a very cooling and easy to apply gel to work into your skin, it is recommended that you use on your T-Zone but I used all over my face and even neck.
The cooling sensation was lovely so for anyone with red, angry skin this works just fine and even calming.
I would use this gently don't go in hard as it can be abrasive as any exfoliator can be. Enjoy this, because it works!

I have quite oily and spot-prone skin so I'm always trying new products to help keep it under control, so I picked this up in Boots. I don't normally spend so much on a facial scrub, but after trying so many and having them not work I decided to spend a bit more to see if a more expensive product would work better.
The packaging is simple but stands out with its bright green colour, and I like the flip-cap as it makes it easier to use than a screw-cap when your hands are wet.
This scrub has a fresh but quite strong scent, which might be too much for people with very sensitive skin, though to be honest you probably shouldn't use this scrub anyway if you have very sensitive skin as the exfoliating particles are quite big and abrasive. I like the fact that the particles are quite big as it feels like it's really working when I use it, but sometimes it can feel a little bit scratchy. It has a gel-like consistency that is green like the packaging. It lathers well but you need to splash your face quite a lot to get rid of it afterwards, which can be quite annoying if you're in a rush.
After using the scrub my skin looks quite pink, but doesn't feel sore or tight. I've been using this for a few months now on and off and everytime I start using it again my skin improves alot, becoming less oily and spotty.
Overall I really like this scrub as it does what it says it will do, which is to improve oily and spot-prone skin. The price is a bit high but in my opinion it's well worth it and I'll continue buying it. I hope this review helps :)
