A few days ago TBR posted a morning skin care routine.

Now, here I am wanting to give you a more in-depth explanation for why I use these products.

My skin is the oily type, and my main goal is to fade my marks and blemishes. As I shamelessly used to be a pimple popper, I can hear you all saying ewww - fight me then...

The products stated below are in order of my daily routine. Please be aware to do further research if you’re still unsure, I don't want to get blamed for things I don’t have control over cause I’ll be the next shaggy, it wasn’t me.

Here we go ...

Face wash


Clean and Clear Brightening Face Scrub

Price: £2.99

Purchased: Savers

Black soap

Price: N/A

Purchased: Nigeria (but can be bought from an African/Asian shop)

Why did I purchase this product?

My aim was to find a cleanser that was gentle and had qualities that will make my face as soft as a baby's bottom lol.

Both products were purchased with the aim to cleanse and assist in fading these stubborn dark marks. Each product gently exfoliates, energises and brightens my skin.

*FYI when i say ’brightens’ I mean it gives a glow we dont bleach round here - as my bestfriend would say "no bleach pon mi cheeks".

What does it do?

Both products assist with my aim, as it has substances that help fade your marks over time. I mostly use the clean & clear face wash daily whilst using black soap every other day, as I find it a bit harsher.

*For my wash routine I use either of these products depending on how I feel. For example, if I just want to switch up my facial routine or if one of the other has ran out.
