This is possibly the best spot remover I have ever used. I wish I had discovered it sooner! I’ve been using this for a few months and it is definitely very effective at clearing those annoying spots that rear their ugly heads either due to pms, poor diet or anything else!
It has a gel like consistency that dries a few minutes after application and only a small amount is needed. You must be very precise in applying this gel, you don’t want to get it on normal skin. If it does end up on the surrounding skin it will drastically dry it out and leave it a bit scaley and rather nasty looking, it will also in my case produce more spots as it dries my skin and breaks it out! Not what a girl wants! For me I also have to stop using it once the main spot has cleared, otherwise I will just get another spot. I apply it when I first notice the spot, or as soon as I can (I forgot this stuff when I was travelling at Christmas, bad times). I apply it at night time and sometimes day time – if I’m not applying makeup.
Another downside is that when you apply your makeup over the top, you will notice the dried hardened gel. So make sure you are careful in application of the gel so it’s spot only and then again when applying concealer – don’t apply too much as it will look cakey in a few hours due to the gel.
This is a Holy Grail item for me. It really really is. It sounds like serious downsides, but it’s not I’m just trying to emphasise the importance of apply a small amount!
£13 for 0.3 Fl Oz/10 ml. This is a bit pricey for my liking, however as you only use a tiny amount with each application it will last you a very long time.
This is a 9/10, it’s not a 10 for me because of the over drying for me (this may not happen you) and slightly overpriced. Really really recommend it.
