3 (Affordable) Skincare Miracles

I don't know about you, but my constant search in the skincare isles at Priceline is driven by my search for that 'miracle' product that will make all my biggest skincare nightmares disappear. Maybe, no such thing exists - or maybe I need to extend my price range a bit! I have, however, found three amazing products with affordable price tags that work in miraculous ways.

1// Blemish Treatment

The Mario Badescu Drying Lotion ($22.00) is the answer to all those really painful, impossible to squeeze, under-the-skin monster pimples. A dab of this lotion literally dries and shrinks pimples under the skin over night - or over a few nights if they are really persistent. The miraculous nature of this product is that the pimple will never rise to the surface if treated properly meaning no temptation to pop and therefore no lingering scars!

 2// Skin Smoother

I always reach for the Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil ($19.99) whenever I really need a miracle to restore balance to the oils on my skin and help get rid of pesky breakouts. I always rely on facial oils to manage break outs and I've found Rosehip Oil to be the most effective. I apply a few drops to my day moisturiser in the morning as well as my night time moisturiser to help the oil soak into my skin and mask its very 'natural' scent. Within a week my breakouts had cleared and the scars were healing so quickly.

3// Blackhead Remover

It doesn't matter how much I exfoliate, having oily skin and large pores around my nose and cheeks means the build up of dirt and other gross stuff can be really unsightly. Luckily this is easily fixed, especially with Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips*($5.79/6 pack). An oldie, but a goodie - these strips are so effective at removing black heads in ways manual exfoliation just can't. When you peel the strip off your nose and see all the little black heads you'll be able to see what a miracle it is!
Available at: Supermarkets, Priceline & most other pharmacies

Have you tried any of these products out? What are your skincare miracle products?
