If you have kept up with my blog posts for the last week you will know that i have been taking part in the 7 Day Skincare Challenge with Cetraben, (if you have no idea what i’m talking about then firstly go and click this link here). Basically the challenge involved me adding Cetraben into my daily skincare routine and monitoring the results over a week to see any changes or improvements in my problematic, dry skin. We are now at the end of the week and i am able to share my results with you! I also wanted to use this post to answer some of the questions you have been asking me over the course of the challenge.
So i guess the main question you’re all waiting to be answered is: did it work?! My answer is YES! I am so incredibly happy with the results and the way my skin is feeling after just one short week. I have been using both the lotion and cream version of the product at least twice daily, the lotion in a morning underneath makeup and the cream at night. Before the challenge began i had a flare up of eczema around my eye area which has now calmed down so much and has made such a difference when its come to applying concealer/foundation. In general my skin is feeling so much softer and more hydrated. As well as eczema i also suffer with general dry and rough patches of skin, particularly on my elbows and knees. Again over the course of the week i have noticed that these areas have become much smoother and the physical appearance is so much better. I think that sometimes when it comes to skincare i get lazy and forget to do my routine when i over complicate things, but because Cetraben is such an easy one step product that actually works i have found it so much easier to stick to a routine! Even though the week is now over i am still going to be using the product daily as i am still looking for further improvement and i think its also a great way of controlling my eczema and a maintenance routine.
As i said of the course of this week I’ve had lots of questions across all of my social media about the challenge. I have picked out a few of the ones that i feel are important to discuss to answer.
Can Cetraben definitely be used on your face as well as your body? Yes! Absolutely. It can even be used around the eye area and on the the eye lids.
Is Cetraben an affordable product? Both the travel size and the full size come in at under £10 so yes it is extremely affordable. The Full size is £7.99 and the travel size is £4.99. Skincare can be really expensive but this is a product which is both affordable and actually works!
Where can i buy Cetraben? Boots, Superdrug, Weldricks, Lloyds Pharmacy and Tesco. The product no longer has to be prescribed by your doctor it is available for anyone to buy.
There are some really useful tools on the Cetraben website which i really recommend you checking out. The Skintelligence Test is extremely useful in helping you realise just how well you actually know your skin. Of course the better you know your own skin, the better you can educate yourself on what you should be doing to keep it in the best condition you possibly can. The Skin Diary is also a really useful tool as it basically helps you monitor your skin over the course of a week; what works for you and what doesn’t, any triggers that have a negative impact and how your diet effects your skin. I also really recommend you check out this skin animation of how Cetreben actually works for a better understanding of the product! For any further information on these tools or just the product in general make sure you check our the Cetraben website.
Certain are also running a really cool competition where 10 of you can win a full sized Cetraben cream and take part in the 7 Day Challenge just like i did. To enter all you have to do is click here and share your top skincare tip!
Overall i have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the challenge and i’m over the moon with the results. A huge thank you to Cetraben for working with me on this. I am so proud to support a brand that i am truly passionate about, and i hope that by sharing my journey this week i can help some of you who suffer with similar skin problems to myself.
