Lockdown diaries: Skincare products for problem skin

For an unfortunately large percentage of us, the current lockdown has been causing absolute chaos upon our skin. Gone are the days of spa facials, skin peels and LED treatments, we’re stuck at home without a dermatologist in sight.

However, not all hope is lost. We are extremely fortunate to be living in a world where multiple online stores exist, and within a few scrolls and clicks on the likes of Beauty Bay, Cult Beauty and Feel Unique, we have the opportunity to completely revamp our skincare cupboard.

Listed below are a few of my favourite skincare products for when my skin is really going through it. Those time of the month spots? Dry, flaky skin? Oily T-Zone? Rest assured, I’ve got you covered. Even better, they’re all at drugstore prices and part of your night-time skincare routine!

Lacura Refreshing Face Wash Gel:

With their 100% soap-free formula, this Aldi (Yes, ALDI!) face wash is perfect for when your skin is feeling extra sensitive but needs that second cleanse. (£0.85)

Garnier Pure Active Anti Blackhead Charcoal Mask Peel Off:

This product has completely transformed my skin. If I mention bumpy and enlarged nose pores does it ring an extremely piercing bell? Fear no more. Layer this mask onto your T-Zone, leave on for 20 minutes and allow the formula to unclog and clear your skin. (£7.99)

Nip and Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Serum:

Ensure you have the most amazing self-care evening by enjoying the smoothing and plumping properties of this serum. Recommended by Kylie Jenner, this product allows your skin to look youthful and replenished for those days where it feels as if the life has been sucked out of you. (£19.95)

Revolution Skincare Skin Nourishing CBD Oil:

As someone whose skin type is profusely dry, this oil absolutely saves my face and is by far my favourite product. This renowned oil won’t chill you out per say, but will instead calm and soothe your dry patches to ensure an even complexion. Massage onto skin with either your fingers or cotton pad to revolutionise your face. (£9.99)

Garnier Skin Naturals UltraLift Night Cream:

I will be completely honest and admit I picked up this moisturiser as a mistake, but what a happy accident it turned out to be. Of course, at the ripe age of twenty one my skin isn’t desperate for a youthful, anti-wrinkle glow, but it doesn’t hurt to start early, right? With the perfect evening cream texture, this thick but light product will calm those problem areas and allow your face to feel irresistibly soft in the morning. (£10.20)

  3. I run a vape store web directory and we have had a posting from a vape store in the USA that also offers for sale CBD product lines. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been restricted and have requested us to get rid of PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store website directory. We do not sell CBD products like CBD oil. We only offer advertising and marketing services to CBD companies. I have looked into Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health and wellness Retailer and if you take a close look, you will witness that they sell a surprisingly wide-ranging series of CBD product lines, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment solution. It emerges that PayPal is applying twos sets of rules to many different firms. Because of this limitation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has restricted my payment choices and currently, I am intensely dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have sought advice from a barrister from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is absolutely not legal and inequitable as it ought to be applying an uniform criterion to all companies. I am yet to talk with a different legal representative from a US law firm in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. In the meantime, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.

  5. I look after a vape shop directory site and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the USA that likewise markets CBD products. A Month later, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store directory site. We do not retail CBD goods such as CBD oil. We simply offer online marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Wellness Store and if you take a close peek, you will see that they supply a pretty wide-ranging stable of CBD goods, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment method. It emerges that PayPal is employing contradictory standards to different firms. As a result of this stipulation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related web site. This has limited my payment possibilities and currently, I am greatly contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have gotten in touch with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is altogether illegal and discriminatory as it should be applying a consistent standard to all companies. I am yet to consult with one more legal representative from a US law firm in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with substitute payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
