Even Your Skin Tone + Giveaway (Closed)

What if I told you that a major reason for uneven skin tone is the lack of using a product with SPF in it?

Many of us grew up not using any type of sun block. I certainly didn’t think I needed it because my skin colour gave me natural protection from the sun, so I figured that I didn’t need to wear sun block or use anything with SPF. Little did I know that sun exposure either causes or exacerbates many skin conditions and appearance issues, especially dark spots, blemishes, discolouration and skin tags. So sun protection should actually be part of every woman’s beauty routine, despite her skin tone. With winter coming, it’s important to remember that even when it’s cloudy outside, you can still get effected by harmful sun rays. I’ve inherited skin tags from both of my parents, and unprotected exposure to the sun makes them worse. I regret not knowing better before, but now I do, so I make sure that my regular skin care products have a level of SPF in them.

Some followers have been recently asking me what my current or updated skin care routine is, but I haven’t deviated from my ol’ faithful. I doubt it’ll change any time soon because it works for me. If you’re like me and would like skincare products that combine moisturising your skin as well as protecting it from the sun and keeping your skin even, then give the Johnson’s Even Complexion range a go. Even after I had Kai, I moved over to the Johnson’s range that tackles oily skin, but now that my skin seems to be back on track, I’ve gone back to using the Even Complexion Day Cream. Here’s why:

  • It’s light. It doesn’t feel greasy or heavy on my face.
  • It keeps my skin moisturised all day in this very, very dry Joburg climate.
  • It has an SPF of 15 so it’s giving my skin a layer of protection against the damaging effects of the sun and helping to keep my skin tone even.
  • It has berries and soy as its main ingredients, keeping the formula gentle.

The range is made up of four products; Even Complexion Day Cream with SPF15, Night Cream, Facial Wash and Cleansing Bar. On a day when I don’t need to exfoliate my face and I want a more gentle cleanse, then I’ll use the facial wash – it doesn’t dry out my skin. The entire range gently care for your face on a very affordable level, retailing between R19.95 – R54.95.

    My biggest skin issue would have to be nasty blemishes caused by zits as well as discoloration and pigmentation of the skin due to be Indian. I’ve been using these products every single day now for the past year or so and it has dramatically helped not only keeping the zits at bay but with the blemishes and quick fading of them. I keep restocking on the face wash and moisturizer as they are the only products that have truly worked for me compared to even the most expensive skin care products, so much so that I even have my SO hooked on them now… A man using pink skin care products, and he loves it. Couldn’t get any better ☺️

    I’ve been using the Care Complexion Face Wash for little over a year now and I gotta say, I’m impressed. It isn’t drying on the skin (my skin type changes all the time) nor burns as some products do because of the sensitivity of my skin. What gets me most is the fact that for all this, it’s one of the most inexpensive products on the market which let’s face it (see what I did there, ha!) us mommies could do with saving a few bucks what with using all our monies on kiddies lol

    Good Day Aisha and Johnson’s Face Care Team♡♡

    I love any Johnson products. I’ve been using them since birth. Even the colgnes and powders im still using it and the new wash soaps smells amazing ♡♡.

    My biggest concern with my skin texture and complexion is that of sensitivity, oily spots and dry spots, dark rings around my eyes and damage of eczema, which is gone now thank goodness. I’ve got a light tanned skin complexion.

    I’ve seen this product and is always doubtful, however after the tutorial and reading up more about it. It seems like this is where im headed. Sticking to my Johnson brand from head to toe.

    I know Johnson sells at good quality, so it would even be much better if i can take on my facial issues with your product.

    Please grant me the opportunity. I will market them for you too.

    Help me Johnson’s to make my Face dream come true.

    With Love,
    Anushka Manuel

    I have a few dark spots and a friend of mine has been using Johnson’s even complexion range for a month now, and I’ve already noticed that her blemishes as a result of a recent breakouts are far lighter than they were before, while some have disappeared entirely. I would love to be given the chance try Johnson’s even complexion range.

    I used the product. It smells and feels amazing. However it didn’t do much for my dark marks. I’ve used other products which promised to tackle my dark marks and also didn’t work. But… Iam going back to J&J when what I’m using is finished.

    I have oily skin. I guess one good thing is that I won’t really have wrinkles when I’m older but one bad thing is adult acne!!! Never had issues as a teenager but As soon as I had my son in 2009 , my skin started changing. Pregnancy blemishes just didn’t really ever go away. In summer they darken and it makes me want to put on BB cream to hide it but I know that will make it worse. It’s embarrassing really … I’m now 30 and it’s time to take care of my skin!

    Oily skin with whiteheads only ever popping up in between my eyebrows & around my mouth, leaving ugly dark marks in its path of destruction. Johnson’s will help with these ugly dark marks & it will be softer on my skin then what I’m currently using, that’s actually damaging my skin more.

    I have oily skin, mainly on T-zone area… And then a bit dry elsewhere. My skin tone is also a bit uneven and looks a bit blotchy at times. I’m a young lady, only 25 and it’s quite embarrassing when you use make up and through the make up your oily skin prevails… And then where it’s dry it doesn’t quite last as long. Getting this under control as soon as possible is the best solution I think. I’ve tried a few products but haven’t had the desired result. I’m pretty sure Johnson and Johnson could be the solution to this.

I drink alot of water and eat my vegies, still when “that time of the month” approach my face experience harsh breakout that leaves spot which affects my complexion. My complexion is uneven to the extent that I can’t go without foundation.

    I have been in this dreadful condition for many years. I do not go in public and I remain indoors the entire day. I don’t have confidence in anything in my life all due to my skin. I have these age marks on my cheek and this is darkening and spreading. I have lost faith in all products. I am giving my last chance to Johnson’s to save my skin.
    I am willing to try the even skin tone lotion and hope to see the difference.

    I have got oily skin who gets very oily in summer. I live in east London which gets very humid and then I sweat a lot which also makes my skin brake out with pimples. I have fair skin with lots of Sun damage and dark spots. It would be nice to find a product that works and that is not to expensive.

  47. April 10, 2018 / 10:24 pm

    Wow, First of all what a great Giveaway.
    I struggle with very dry skin (especially in my face) and honestly I never use anything with Spf in it because until I read your blog post I didnt know that it was necessary .I have a few pigmentation spots in my face and I also struggle with unwanted pimpels especially now because of my pregnancy. Since im pregnant my skin is not so dry anymore, but starting to get oily and that is something that I cant handle because you cant actually Hide it like you can with dry skin. With all the hormones my skin changed so much and I dont even knoe what products to use anymore. We also recently moved to the coast and with the change of climate my skin still needs to adapt. Also going to the beach alot this hamper would help me so much because of the Spf in the products. I would really love to give this product a try and to see the amazing results formyself. My skin really needs this and it would be wonderfull to feel good about myself again. And it would feel like a pamper session. Something us new moms dont get very often. Fingers crossed to be a lucky winner.

From popping my pimples I’ve in return caused my skin alot of damage. I have blemishes and very bad uneven skin tone. I’ve been using essential oils and they are not really getting me to where I want my skin to be. I believe Johnson and Johnson will help me with my skin problems and it would be great to try it out and see what it had to offer.
