Attack Those Spots!

Okay so honestly, we can all say we have had an attack from spots, no matter what age! And I myself know how frustrating these horrible vicious outbreaks can be! No matter how bad they may be, even if its just the one, trying to get rid of them seems like mission impossible, doesn't it? Well here are the products I use to try and at least ease the spots on my face! 

The first product that I use is the Simple 'Spotless Skin Rapid Action Spot Zapper' sometimes I find that if a spot is quite fresh then sometimes this may sting putting it on, but don't let that phase you from using this product! It has a roller at the end of the tube so applying this product is very easy. You can buy this product from any shop such as Boots, Superdrug, however I buy mine from Morrisons and this costs me usually about £4.99.

The second product that I use is the Freederm 'Fast Track' Gel. Again if you have a fresh spot (or you have a tendency to pick them and they become sore, yes even I am guilty of this!) applying the product may make it sore, but no pain is no gain! I have been using this product from Freederm for about a year or so, and I find that this product really works for me! I buy this product from Boots at the retail price of £6.39. This product may seem a lot of money for what you get, but I honestly recommend this product. I used to have very severe outbreaks of spots, and they wouldn't go for months, sometimes even get worse in that time, but now I have maybe 3 or 4 spots come every 1 or 2 months! Even when I don't have spots, I won't use the product every day but I will use it as something to try and prevent more spots appearing! 

For my third and final product that I haven't been using for that long is the Witch 'Blemish Stick' I bought this product as I was browsing on the Boots website looking for lipsticks and buying more of the Lee Stafford hair products. I have used this product a couple of times and use this after using my other 2 products. I'm not sure really if this product has had any benefit for me yet, but the application is easy. You can either use your finger to transfer the product onto your skin or just run the stick over the area you want to put the product on. I bought this product from Boots for £2.89, brilliant bargain for this product so excellent if you are on a tight budget and need a little help with your spots!

Lee Stafford Hair Growth Product Review

Today's product review is going to be about the Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment Products; what I think about them, how they work, what they are for, and my ranking out of 10.

I have been using this product for about a month now, I am on my second tub of the "Treatment for Hair that Never Grows Past a Certain Length' , they company recommend that you use the Shampoo and Conditioner from this collection to get the desired results you want. The Lee Stafford Collection all together is about giving the all the nutrients and protein to your hair which it needs to be healthy and well cared for. When I began using this product I felt an immediate effect on how well nourished my hair was straight away. My hair felt a lot smoother and didn't feel so brittle as it did before using the product. You use the tub treatment in between washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner; the directions on the back of the tub recommend you leave the product on for 5 minutes, however I leave mine on for 10 minutes to make sure my hair is well nourished; You then just rinse the product out and then apply your conditioner.

The only real negatives I have about this product is that I believe that it has been mislabelled and maybe giving a false claim that it will make you have hair like Rapunzel in a short space of time. This product is generally about giving your hair the protein and nutrients it needs to help your hair become healthy, only if your hair is healthy will your hair grow a far bit. The other negative of this product is that it does make your hair greasy after about 2 days or so, (if you wash your hair every other day like me this doesn't become too much of an issue, however it can be irritating!).

The price of each is on the dearer end of the market, I wouldn't say that it is the most expensive hair product I have seen, but for 1 tub of the treatment (in Boots) it is currently at £7.99 and with the Shampoo and Conditioner both costing £6.99 each. Sometimes Boots have an offer on these products such as 3 for 2 or 3 for £12, which usually works out a lot more cost effective (and when I usually buy in bulk to make sure I don't miss out on saving my money!)

I do find this product to help my hair and honestly since cutting my hair very short back in the summer, I have noticed a nice healthy growth in my hair but also in the general appearance of my hair.

I would mark this product 8/10 and would definitely recommend it and I will keep using this product until I become unhappy or find another product I have more interest in!
