Deviant Skincare Gentle Resurfacing Liquid Review

Deviant Skincare is a brand I am constantly seeing pop up on instagram. After the queen that is -Caroline Hirons, mentioned them once on her socials and included them in her kits - they became ever so popular and very hard to get hold of their products. Luckily, during their promotion with CH, I managed to bag a very good discount and purchased the liquid and oil. Today's post is all about the Gentle Resurfacing Liquid aka GRL.                                        

What is Gentle Resurfacing Liquid? A liquid exfoliant/acid toner. What does it do exactly? Exfoliate the skin using AHAs, BHAs and PHAs. What on earth does that mean? It helps with teh reduction in blemishes and the appearance of pores, lines & wrinkles plus gives the skin a much smoother and more even complexion and skin tone. 

Described as an exfoliating formula combining a unique cocktail of AHA’s (Mandelic, Lactic, Glycolic, Malic and Citric), BHA (Salicylic Acid) and PHA (Gluconolactone) to gently dissolve the bonds binding dull, dead cells to skin’s surface.

The ingredients are incredible and if you were to spend time researching each one, you would learn that they are all key to getting the best out of your skin. I've been using this about 3 times a week since the back end of October and my oily, spot prone skin bloody loves it. 

Using acids in my skincare routine is a big step for me, just buying one this expensive (£35) made me die a little inside. However, to help with my scaring, uneven skin tone and texture I knew it was something I needed to start adding into my routine. What is so unique about the GRL is that the unique blend of the different ingredients makes it very mild for the skin. I use it 3 times a week (as suggested by the brand) and  think this is more than enough. Anymore than this for me, or anyone with normal skin would probably be too much and not give the result of that glowy, smooth skin. With consistent use of this, I've noticed a significant difference to my overall skin. Its looking a lot more even, smooth and most of all its helping with my stubborn scars. I can't fault it all. The tingle you get when applying at first, goes away and doesn't burn or irritate the skin. I haven't fallen out of love with it once and can't praise the product enough.

As a newbie to the world of AHA's, BHA's ect, this has been a great addition to my routine and I can't wait to see what the long term effects will be. Its actually encouraged me to use more acid based products like serums and cleansers (reviews coming soon) because I'm in awe at the difference it makes to my skin. 

If you are interested in this or any of the other Deviant Skincare line, then please do check them out. As of this week, the GRL is still out of stock, but is due back this month as well as some other amazing products.

Becoming a Confident Woman

 Gaining confidence in adulthood can be fairly tricky. While the outfits you wear may exude confidence, there are other ways you can boost how you feel about yourself, as well as the choices you make. Being confident is not something that can occur overnight. You will need to put time and dedication into bolstering yourself and becoming someone you are really proud of.

Confidence is more about how you view yourself, and less about how others view you, which is why you need to be sure that the choices you are making are ones that really make you happy. In addition to this, honing your skills at whatever it is you are doing can also help you with your confidence and self-esteem.
