SOS! I burned my face off!

By Get Lippie

Hi there, my name is Luce, and I am a beauty blogger.  And an idiot.  I have sensitive skin, I KNOW I have sensitive skin, and, I’ll bet, half of you know I have sensitive skin too.  So why, WHY? did I decide to trial a new facemask an hour before an important lunch on Sunday?

I’ll tell you why, because I’m an IDIOT.

The mask, of course, burnt my face.  Burnt my face RIGHT OFF.  I was PURPLE.  A big purple idiot.  A big purple idiot with an expensive lunch to go to.  So, what do I do when I burn my face off with a new product?  I go straight into SOS mode, and break out the Bioderma, and Darphin Intral products.  

This is a bit of an annoying post, because two of these products are only available in France, but I’m going to suggest that if you suffer from reactive skin at all, you beg steal or borrow the two Bioderma products, by any means possible.

In the first instance, I spray (and spray and spray) with the Bioderma Crealine spray, which contains zinc and other minerals, and is cooling and soothing, I spray it as often as I can bear it – it’s also good on razor rash, I’ve found! – then alternate layers of the Darphin Intral Redness Relief Recovery Cream and the Bioderma Soothing repair cream, then keep spraying.  And spray some more.

The moral of this story is, if you are trying something new on your face, don’t do it right before an important appointment.   You might go purple, and it’s not a good luck …

The FIne Print: Purchases.  Lovely, cooling and soothing purchases.  Why the HELL can’t we get Bioderma in the UK?  WHY?
