So it’s been approximately 10 weeks since did THIS post.

And it’s been 10 weeks since I’ve been using all the (mostly) Decleor products mentioned. Specifically:

Cleansers: Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser Moisturisers/oils: Decleor Aromessence Ylang Ylang and Aromessence Ylang Ylang Night Balm, both for combination and oily skin (although I am neither… I certainly lean that way rather than dry), Decleor Expression De L’Age Radiance Smoothing Cream, specially formulated for women in their 30’s.
Eye Care: Decleor Expression De L’Age Relaxing Eye Cream. Again specially formulated for women in their thirties.

So how have I found the products and is my skin now beautiful? Well lets talk through the products. The Alpha H Cleanser I reviewed here. I still very much enjoy using this cleanser and have nothing further to add to that.

The Decleor products are beautiful. The balms and oils are a pleasure to use as is the moisturiser and eye cream, but its the wonderful scents of the oil and balm as well as the ritual of applying them that make them extra special. The moisturiser is nice, but somehow doesn’t seem quite moisturising enough for me, I don’t think that’s fair to say to be honest, I think I’m more used to a thicker pot of cream rather than a thinner lotion formula.

Unfortunately, this regime hasn’t worked out for me the way I would have hoped and alas I find my skin is exactly the same as it was 10 weeks ago in terms of pores and congestion. I have a lot of history with Decleor skincare and I absolutely can’t bring myself to say anything bad about these products at all… I actually think that the problem is that I’ve not been using the right Decleor products for my skin. I think I shouldn’t have gone with the combination/oily skin products and gone for the Neroli for normal skin.

I’m really disappointed to be honest! I had high high hopes for this and as I say I can’t fault the products, my skin is no worse, no different, it’s just no better and I don’t even think its because the products aren’t up to standard, in fact I know it’s not that, Decleor standards are extremely high, its just that these aren’t the right products for me alas!

And so my search for the perfect skincare for me starts again…I’ve already found something fantastic so I’m looking forward to sharing that with you soon.

Please don’t let my lack of success here put you off, I whole heartedly recommend Decleor products based on my past experiences alone (I used Decleor skincare for several years before I started blogging) and loved it.

*Disclaimer – a mixture of PR samples and purchases. I bought the Cleanser, eye cream and moisturiser, the balm and oil were press samples*

    What a shame these didn’t work for you. I’ve never tried Decleor though am a fan of Alpha H. Look forward to hearing about your new finds!

    I had exactly the same experience with Decleor. The products are so lovely but I just can’t justify the expense because they don’t seem to really do anything!
    The Alpha H cleanser I have actually been testing for the last couple of weeks and it’s definitely getting a glowing review because it really does take off waterproof mascara and hasn’t broken me out at all.
    I just wish it was cheaper!
