Review: Skyn Iceland anti-blemish gel and cooling daily lotion

'Twas the night before New Year and all on my face were a load of red blemishes looking right out of place.

All the tasty festive food and chilly weather took a right tole on my skin in December, leaving me all blotchy and dry. I usually stick to a little tea tree and witch hazel to deal with spots but thought I'd give these Skyn Iceland products a go this time - and wow, was I impressed! I used the anti-blemish gel before going out, underneath my make up, and then reapplied before I went to bed. By the next morning, any red marks were barely visible, and the cooling daily lotion I put on for the day did an incredible job of shrinking them to microscopic size.

My skin is very sensitive so I'm always wary of trying cooling products - they tend to dry my face out even more. Although these Skyn Iceland treats didn't do much in the way of moisturisation for me, they certainly didn't do anything to dry my skin out either. Both the cooling lotion and the blemish gel absorbed really quickly, weren't a bit oily and gave me a refreshing, tingly wake up!

I *highly* recommend these products for anyone suffering with a bit of wind chill or a couple of bad spots at the moment. Combined with a decent night cream (I love Body Shop's Vitamin E moisturiser), you've got a perfect winter skin care package.
