Can you really have Fab pores???

I have been becoming obsessed with spa's as of late, they draw you in with the promise of fluffy dressing gowns and slippers and assurances that they can rid you of almost any body issue that you may have from Acne to a back full of knots that scouts would be proud of. THEN it hits you...the bill...the BIG bill and all the work is undone as you spend the next month stressing over your credit card bill.

Well no more!! for a while at least. I have been scouring the shops and the internet for any products that you can use to recreate the Spa effect at home, no I can't include the masseuse but if you have a other half they may be able to be bribed with a can of larger and a night of football watching fun.
The best thing about spending a little cash on jars of product is that you get multiple treatments from them so by the end you feel better about yourself.
At the moment my issue is my skin, it is not in the worst state that is has ever been(ie not looking like a pepperoni pizza) but it just needs a bit of time spending on it so I can lay off the liquid foundation and go for something lighter. For me one of the first places I looked was in the direction of the guys at Soap and Glory, as up till now they have not let me down.
The Fab Pore 15 min facial peel

I love this!! Not too keen on the smell as it's a bit too minty for my taste, but I am more than willing to over look this to get results that I have had from this little pot.
You can get two uses from it, pop it on for 5 mins for a little spruce up or 15Mins for the full WOW effect. Every time I rub this clay like cream on to my skin I promise myself it will be on for just a few minutes but I can never help lingering over something for a bit longer so I have my full Peel effect.
I do what they say because let's face it the S&G guys are always right, and concentrate on my 'issue' areas which for me are my chin and nose. Then I just let it do it's minty thing.My skin has become less bumpy and seems to have a smoothness about it, that's 1 point to a home spa.
You can use it 2-3 times weekly and I do! The 50ml pot will get you a couple of months using it like this so what a bargin!
I would certainly say that this is worthy of use in a Spa treatment and I am considering asking S&G If there will be a S&G spa??? pretty please...with a cherry on top
Will I repurchase ? doubt

Get yours at Boots for £7.15  50ml

  1. I was very impressed with the SKII Facial Treatment Essence (, enough so that I have continued to use the product daily as part of my skin care routine after the test period. It's a luxury purchase to be sure, but this is one of the best products that can really make a significant difference in your skin, and so worth every penny.

    I applied the treatment each morning and evening after cleansing my skin and before moisturizer/primer and then makeup. Within just a few days I could see that my skin was much more supple and smooth - particularly in the t-zone. After about two weeks, I loved the beautiful glow my skin had - even without makeup.

  2. Hi Lisa,

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. Great recommendation for Spa skin at home. Have you tried the Soap and Glory peel?
