Natural Skincare products for blemished/oily skin ♡ | handpickedbeauty

Hey everyone,

A few weeks ago, I was very kindly sent some products from Nelsons to review. I was definitely not expecting such amazing generosity so thankyou so much Nelsons! All of their products are packed full of beneficial ingredients to help blemished skin, so I have loved trying them all out.
This is the first post I've done about products I have been sent, but I am under no obligation to write a positive review, and I am only ever honest with you guys and I wouldn't say I love a product if I don't. :~)
Something I was extremely excited to try was their Balancing moisturiser. Formulated to help with blemishes, full of natural extracts and no bad ingredients, this is the perfect moisturiser for anyone suffering with skin problems. My skin can get quite oily especially as it is getting warmer so an oil free moisturiser is the way to go, as it isn't clogged up any pores! This is really smooth, and sinks into the skin straight away, leaving your skin soft and hydrated. It does leave your skin feeling a little tight but that feeling soon wears off. I would really recommend this!

Another thing they kindly sent me was the Bach Rescue Cream, for dry, rough or sensitive skin. Honestly, at first I thought I would never use this as it isn't the sort of product I would usually reach for. However, the winter has left parts of my skin feeling dry and irritated, so I decided to try this on the sides of my nose and on my heels after exfoliating them. I put fluffy socks on my feet, and when I woke up almost all the dryness on my face had faded and was smooth, and my feet were really soft. This claims to care for 24 hours and I agree with that, as it really is a heavy duty moisturiser! I have being using this all the time, and I think it is perfect for winter when your skin is feeling rough and dry. 

Another product I tried was the Purifying Daily Facial Wash. This also is anti-blemish care, and I was super excited to try this as I have never tried anything with seaweed in before! I have heard lot sof things about the benefits of seaweed for blemished/oily skin so I was very excited to use this. The consistency is very thin which surprised me, but it means it is so easy to get into all the nooks and crannies of your face and clean everything out. The smell is quite strong; it smells like a mixture of tea tree and the ocean. I personally quite like this but I know some people don't so it's worth mentioning. The smell doesn't linger after you have applied it though so don'y worry! This is a lovely product to use and it is full of beneficial ingredients too.

I also have been using the Pure and Clear Blemish gel. This is packed full of tea tree which is amazing for helping blemishes to heal, however the smell is very very intense. Again, it doesn't linger and I don't mind it but it could be a factor if you don't like tea tree! This works really nicely, and it was the perfect time to receive this as my skin has been breaking out lately! It dries very quickly, but it definitely reduces redness and helps to kill all the bacteria which are hiding in blemishes. I'd really recommend this, as it does the job! :D

Last but not least, I tried the Pure and Clear Facial Wipes. I'm not one for using facial wipes normally, however I am really enjoying these! They don't rub and tug on your skin as some wipes do, and as well as removing makeup they are full of lovely ingredients so they are also cleaning your skin really nicely. They remove waterproof mascara and eyeliner, so sometimes if I smudge my makeup application these are great to quickly rectify the problem. These are ideal for using before the facial wash, and I would recommend purchasing this if you like to remove your makeup quickly and efficiently. If you are wearing loads of makeup, something like Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish would be more ideal, but if you only wear a small amount these are great for getting it all off.

Hope this review was helpful :)
