Witch Skincare overview, part 1

I was meant to type up this overview ages ago but something else and life in general ALWAYS got in the way.
But! I'm doing it now, so...

I won these on one of my fave blogs the lovely and gorgeous Stina's Chic Beauty Blog, go check her out and subscribe if you can. In the bitchy(for the bigger part) world of beauty blogging she is just a breath of fresh air! She doesn't mind talking to/helping less popular bloggers and is always the nicest.
Before I go ahead I would like to send Witch skincare PR Holly a massive Thank You, companies with nice PRs are SO under rated these days!!

Please remember this post reflects MY experience with these products and what might have not worked for me, could work MASSIVELY for you.

Witch hazel is a natural ingredient that naturally cleanses, tones and soothes, leaving your skin perfectly balanced, soft and healthy looking.
Witch products are suitable for most skin types, but it’s on oily or combination skin that the power of witch hazel can prove particularly effective.

You can find Witch Skincare in the UK & Ireland in Tesco, Boots and Superdrug and local chemists. It is also to be launched in Australia.
For more information you can check out their web site:

Anti-blemish Skin Clearing Primer, 30ml RRP £6.99

It's a REALLY good primer and it does the job of many other primers that come at higher prices, with the added bonus of preventing blemishes too. Skin tone is evened out and those pesky pores appear smaller and smoother. You only really need a small amount so one bottle will go a LONG way! Stays on all day, your foundation will still look fresh and pristine when you remove as when you first apply it.

Anti-blemish Redness Relief Moisturiser, 30ml RRP £6.99
This is a green based anti-redness product which would have usually seen me run a mile, as they all are too tinted for my skin tone. Yeah they combat the redness, but they also make me look like a ruddy mutant!
This one however didn't, which REALLY positively surprised me, clearly you need to be careful and not use too much, but otherwise the green tint really does disappear upon application. Unlike other anti-redness products, when applied on red areas it doesn't sting or feel overly cooling, but just pleasing, you feel like giving out a sigh or relief...and you do when you check your face and see no pink/red areas.
It's incredibly light and it almost has the texture of a gel, it is that light. Your skin is left soft and smooth.
I will definitely purchase it after this one runs out.
Both thumbs are up for this one!!

Anti-blemish Pressed Powder - Translucent, 10g £4.99
This one will be particularly good for oily or combination skins, it absorbs excess oils and leaves you shine free. I wouldn't personally recommend it if you have dry skin as it will make it slightly more dry and ashy.
It gives a light to medium coverage and goes very well with really pale skin tones as it's not too yellow, orange or pink.

Anti-blemish Tinted moisturiser - Light, Medium Or Dark, 30ml £5.99
I didn't have much hope in this as generally tinted moisturisers are too dark for me, and unfortunately this was one of them. My redhead friend tried it and unfortunately it was too orangey for her as well.

Stay tuned for part 2
