Skinade | Why I Stopped

Wednesday, 13 August 2014

You may remember a while back I posted a review on Skinade (link here). Since then I've had several questions regarding Skinade and if I still use it. So I'm writing this post to address the question you've been asking. The answer as to whether I still use it is no and I'll tell you why..

The post I did back then was a review on my experience with Skinade so far - I had the 25 day course and I created the post within 2 weeks of using to tell you the changes I had had. I paid for Skinade with my own money and therefore you should not think that my opinion was altered in any way in that review - and regardless of whether I get sent a product my opinion is always 100% honest. I want to strongly put that across to you as a lot of people assume that when you get sponsored posts or sent items for review that you are misguided because of this. However, every PR company should already know that if a product isn't up to expectations we will say so, bearing in mind that what may work for me might not work for you and vice versa. I can only say my experiences and try to be as helpful as I can. If you had bought Skinade because of my review then please let me know how you got on because I would love to know. 

Unfortunately for me my great changes I had had soon subsided in the last week of using Skinade. The claims to continuously improving your skin hadn't worked for me and I did a slight U-turn and went back to where I had first started. I was unsure of why this had happened but decided to not purchase another batch. I had expected continued improvements but when that took a back seat, so did I. I wasn't going to fork out money each time to get the same results I did. When I created my review I did already have my 'breakout period' where my skin got worse before it got better which is why I didn't understand that it had happened again. 

Skinade is an expensive product and you do have to continue using it to keep the results. Also, being a beauty blogger I need to be able to review products effectively and if something like the drink is masking a skincare product I can not provide a true review on results that I have had. I want to be very flexible in what I do so I can help you. I can however only provide you with one view and one view only, my view. So I am limited in that sense. But I really do hope things work out for you better than they do me in some cases. Especially when you spend a lot of money. 

I am currently in the process of sorting out my skincare regime and as soon as that is perfected I will blog about it. Until then I can't say a lot because I haven't seen any amazing results and I obviously want to give you my opinion on things I have found that actually work for me. I hope this helps some of you out and also answers your questions about whether you should or shouldn't. If you are willing to spend that sort of money for a continued period of time then I wouldn't disregard this - I just hope you have better results than myself.



  1. Stuff like this never works for me either, I always thought it was a bit of a fad. I've found the best way to keep clear skin is to drink 8 glasses of water a day and stick to a consistent skincare routine!
