Silver Serum Update

I apologise for my late review of this. I have had a few laptop difficulties but I am finally reunited with my key board! Thanks for bearing with me!

First things first, I have been applying this periodically when I get a breakout and I haven't unfortunately noticed much difference.

Although, my skin feels smoother,  it has not helped calm or reduce breakouts.  I shall keep trying with this and see if it improves with constant application but as of yet I unfortunately cannot say this has helped me.

 I am rather annoyed by this after reading the flurry of good press about it but I think my immediate suspicions were right, anything claiming miracles will realistically leave you disappointed. The most effective product I have found on the market for any break outs is acne.org with 2.5% BP. This is the ONLY product which has helped me.

 If you follow the routine EXACTLY as it says it will work. I used it with washcloths and it did not work as well, however, after reading comments that you need to be extremely gentle I then stopped and just used water to rinse and it cleared all my breakouts within a week. As always this is my personal opinion on both products, what works for some may not work for others but I completely agree with the acne.org hype. I hope this helps and you find my alternatives which worked for me useful if you also had the same problems with silver serum.

I would love to know if you have tried silver serum to see what you think? Or acne.org?

Let me know in the comments :)

Healthy Lunch Idea

I always find it difficult making a healthy lunch. I am usually rushing in between lectures so either grab something like a wrap or sandwich or if I'm really in a rush a piece of cake or bag of crisps to nibble on in my ill timed lectures. So with it being a new year and all that, I thought that I would concentrate on finding non boring tasty recipes which don't involve limp salad and a few soggy tomatoes. 
 I stumbled across a healthy crab cake recipe which substituted oat cakes for bread and so I adapted it with rivita thins and tuna as that was what was in my cupboard on that particular day.

What you will need:

6 rivta thins/oat cakes
2 tins of tuna
1 spring onion
1 egg
1 chilli or two depending on your spice tolerance.

Mix all ingredients together and pan cook with fry light 1 calorie oil for 3 mins each side

Drizzle with some sliced lemon and pair with a fresh green salad and garlic mayonnaise!

Hope you enjoy!
