An important trip/date/event/meeting/anniversary/(insert important episode of your life here) is around the corner. You wake up the day before and... NOOOO! A nasty pimply spot waves hello. I hate the feeling of that occasional blemish that comes at the worst time. So I always have a good spot treatment at hand for these emergencies. My usual go-to is the Tea Tree Oil from the Body shop. But since I ran out and have been reading about this Origins Spot Remover on blogs a lot (Origins PR you did good), I decided to give it a try.
- Cooling. I love the cooling minty sensation this gel gives, really feels like it's working! The cooling also helps with redness and itchiness if any.
- Clear. Unlike many blemish creams, as you can see from the picture this spot remover is a clear gel consistency. Which means feel free to go dot generously on your face girls, your boyfriend/husband will not freak as you hop into bed ;)
- Good results. This is no miracle worker, but again nothing really is. It helps calm bumps and redness, and dries out blemishes well. I feel like it speeds up the healing process for any older blemishes as well.
- Bad with makeup. What I loved about the Body Shop Tea Tree Oil is that its oil consistency blends well with concealer. The Origins Spot Remover applies on as a gel and dries off to a thin transparent film on the skin. With any type of makeup on top the layer is visible and looks like dry skin. Yuck. Good thing is that the layer easily peels off.
So far so good, I'm really enjoying this. Feels soothing on and helps clear blemishes. If you're in the market for a good spot treatment I'd recommend this one. Although it's not the most powerful one, I feel that it works well with sensitive skin - mild enough to not irritate but effective enough to do its job.
One more thing - this baby is TINY! Super tiny! Don't worry - a little goes a long way though. I've had it for 2 months now and it still looks like a full bottle.
