I have been struggling with acne for about 2 years now and am constantly reaching for anything that could help clear it. I had never been to a dermatologist so I tried numerous products that ended up leaving my skin dehydrated and dull. About a month ago, I had my first facial at Ella Bache and I think I might just be addicted. Who knew that having your face massaged for an hour could be so therapeutic? I left with soft, hydrated and healthy looking skin and 3 products to try; the Ella Bache softening cream cleanser, the balancing serum and the gentle exfoliating gel.
Ella Bache Softening Cream Cleanser - The cleanser is recommended for normal to oily and sensitive skin and even though my skin is more on the dry side, it has still been a miracle product. I was a bit hesitant at first, as all the cleansers I have used in the past have been specifically for acne, but I can safely say this has cleared my skin better than anything with salicylic acid in it. I use this morning and night, and just massage it into my skin with my hands for about 3 minutes then wash off. The scent is nothing too fancy, very neutral and fresh.
Ella Bache Balancing serum - The balancing serum is a lightweight serum that contains vitamin C to help with brightness and texture and also helps to control breakouts. I apply 2 pumps of this each morning and night and within 10 minutes my skin looks instantly more radiant and hydrated. The scent is a gentle and slightly florally which helps to make you feel that extra bit awake, especially in the morning.
Ella Bache Gentle Exfoliating Gel - The gel is a gentle face containing rose petals to exfoliate and brighten your skin without being too harsh. It’s recommended for people with sensitive or dry skin but my sister (who has oily skin) uses it and it still has the same effects. I only use this once a week, but its gentle enough to use twice a week if you need to. The rose petals give it a sweet but clean scent, which is very uplifting, therefore making it my favorite scent out of the three.
After using these products for only 5 weeks, I have already seen such an improvement in the overall look and feel of my skin, and even if you don't have acne and just want some new products to hydrate and brighten your skin, I would definitely recommend trying to get your hands on these. They don't contain any harsh chemicals or colours so they’re perfect for a wide variety of skin types and although they are a bit pricey, they're worth the splurge. I will absolutely be booking myself another facial soon; I think they might just be my new obsession…
