      ideal for dealing with the odd spot, bite, graze or sting

      WHY I BOUGHT THIS Another Liz Earle product that I was introduced to 10 years ago, when I was a spot prone teenager! Liz Earle Spot-On attracted me because all the other Liz Earle products I have tried have done exactly what they said they would. So I figured if they have a spot treatment, it should work as well as any spot treatment can do! WHAT LIZ EARLE SAYS "Problem: spots, pimples, blemishes, minor cuts or bites. Solution: an antiseptic, antibacterial rescue treatment to fight spot-causing bacteria. With pure essential oils of tea tree, melissa and lavender plus protective natural source vitamin E. Dab a little onto blemishes throughout the day. Naturally active ingredients include pure vitamin E, antiseptic and antibacterial tea tree, purifying melissa and soothing lavender." This is, like a lot of Liz Earle products, suitable for all skin types. PRICE £7.90 for a 6ml roller ball. A little pricey, but a product that will last for a good long time. As anyone with spots will agree, you can't put a price on getting rid of them! Can be bought from John Lewis (store or website), QVC (though not all the time), Liz Earle stores, or the Liz Earle website. This product will rarely (if at all) go on sale, but look out for various offers when purchasing this among other Liz Earle products! PACKAGING Spot-On comes in a neat little cardboard box, and like all Liz Earle items, if you order from their website or buy in a Liz Earle store, it will come expertly gift wrapped, and sealed with a Liz Earle Sticker. The treatment comes in a class bottle with a screw top lid. Be careful of taking this away with you. The glass is thin and I once unpacked my suitcase to find broken glass and essential oil all over my makeup bits! :( Spot-On has a metal roller, so when you apply directly to spots, it feels nice and cool on your skin. The liquid has natural antisceptic properties, so you need not worry about hygeine issues. APPLICATION Roll this directly onto your problem area, either before or after applying makeup. The natural ingredients will smooth and promote healing, so your blemish will heal way faster than it would otherwise. This also works on bites, stings and grazes. I find it really stops gnat bites itching! The liquid feels much like an essential oil in consistency, and you can really smell the tea tree and lavender! OVER ALL THOUGHTS While this is no miracle product (your spot won't vanish in front of your eyes!) it really does help a spot, bite, graze or sting heal much faster than it would without using it! I would recommend this to anyone who suffers from the occasional blemish, or as a first aid kit essential for on the go!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        It is easy to spend lots on spot treatments but my intial reaction is that this is worth the money.

        This product retails for just less than £8 and is available from Liz Earle stores and their website. It may also be available from their John Lewis counters and QVC but I haven't checked this! It comes in a 6ml little roller ball bottle and the packaging quite a medical look about it in some ways. This small quantity does sound a little pricey but the roller ball seems to ensure it comes out slowly and evenly. This product claims to be a good anti-bacterial for use on spots, ( and bites, grazes etc) while also being alcohol free. They claim on their site that it is 'antiseptic, antibacterial rescue treatment to fight spot-causing bacteria. With pure essential oils of tea tree, melissa and lavender plus protective natural source vitamin E'. It smells really lovely and natural but at the same time, somehow like it might have an effect! As a twenty-something who recently came off acne meds, and whose skin is slowly but surely going back to its usual naughty ways, I was desperate for something that would calm and dry out spots without drying out the skin more generally. The promise of it being alcohol free made me optimistic that it could be just what I was looking for in this respect. I have not been disappointed and though I have only had it for a few days, I would say it has had a very positive effect on my spots. After the first use I felt that my spots looked less red and angry (they aren't terrible spots generally, I'm lucky that my acne is mild-moderate and involves small spots but it can make me feel very self aware). It is quick and easy to apply and can be topped up throughout the day whenever you feel you need it. Apparently this can even be done when you are wearing make-up (I have to confess I haven't tried this as I have been make up free the past few days hanging out at home but I will update my review once I have been using it for longer). I have a feeling this is going to become my handbag saviour! It makes a difference almost immediately but it is not a cure for the causes of spots, it just calms them when they are there.

        expensive product which doesn't do what it says on the tin.

        I am a sucker for all the latest rage in skincare. I experimented with Liz Earle not long ago after being convinced by a presenter on QVC that it would make my skin so beautifully radiant that I would be stupid not to try. After using the hot cloth polish and cleanser I wasn't wowed, but wasn't disappointed either. My skin type is combination and I was still getting those dreaded spots from time to time. After noticing in the catalogue which comes through my door from time to time that there was this Spot On product, although quite pricey, I decided to give it a go. I was full of hope and anticipation when it arrived, especially when I could decipher witch hazel amongst othwer smells, and I thought it would be perfect for another new arrival of mine - a bright red spot on my chin. Needless to say the spot prevailed and so have others since then. The only difference I can spot is another useless product collecting dust in my cabinet.

        Quality product, works extremely well, Spot On!

        Spot on product for me! I have one with me always, in my bag, by my bed, in the bathroom and medicine cupboard. The design of this little bottle with a roll on application is so easy to use and as it is self cleansing no worries about contamination. I use this for cold sores, spots, inflamed skin anywhere. It does smell strong to begin with of the tea tree and lavender but as it dries very quickly the smell soon goes. But it's a little bottle of magic as it works so well and due to the natural oils in the ingredients it does not dry out the skin either like some spot products. There are some things in life we rely on and cannot function without. Liz Earle's Spot on is one of these jewels for me. It is very hard to mage cold sores and the medicinal cream prescribed dries out the skin so using a little Spot On can actually prevent the cold sore fully developing or hasten the healing process. Spots just seem to disappear overnight. I think it's so good due to the quality of the oils used and even though you may hesitate at the cost of such a small bottle believe me it lasts and lasts due to the roller ball application.

        a sopt treatment thata reaaly works

        This is one of my favourite spot treatments on the market. I always get Liz Earle online and while making my usual order I decided to try this as I was suffering from an acne breakout at the time as was desperate! For just under £8 (£7.75) I was really pleased, it rolled on easily and went exactly where you wanted. I have tried many spot treatments and this one is by far the best, it actually worked, overnight for small spots and a couple of days for those more stubborn ones, but it didn't sting when it went on and it didn't dry my skin out (something lots of other brands do). You can wear it under makeup but I would advise you give it a few minutes to dry first. I still use this today and would highly recommend it, my only downside is that as with all of her products it's quite expensive so I use it along side another brand (review to follow on this one) just to keep my costs down.

        a must for any handbag

        I am a big Liz Earle fan as many will know from reading previous reviews. Following one of my purchases I received as a free gift of "spot on". This is a 6ml little tube which is for the treatment of spots, blemishes and also grazes (or that is what it says on the tube). I personally wouldn't use it for a graze however I do find it is great fro the treatment of spots. The items itself is pure liquid in a small glass tube with a metal roller ball on top for easy application. This allows you to apply in public or in other locations without the use of a mirror discreetly and frequently. The liquid and the roller ball allows you to apply over the spot and it doesn't need rubbing in so doesn't show on the skin. Its all natural ingredients inside of the product and basically I think it soothes the skin and dries it out to enable the blemish/spot o stop growing and for the skin to repair itself. Ingredients are listed below: lavender apricot oil Melissa essential Tea tree Vitamin E The actual price of this is quite high for a spot cream as it is 7.75 however it does last ages and you don't forget to take it out with you as due to the size can keep easily in bag or pocket so is there when you need it (unlike some other products that when I buy I forget to carry about due to the size of packaging). When applying it does sting and feels a bit as though there is alcohol in it, however although I am not hugely prone to spots I do get the odd one and I find that when I use this it either doesn't fully appear (if used as soon as the bump appears) or doesn't take as long to disappear. The smell is lovely as well not too antisepticy so if you do apply in public it isn't as though you smell of TCP!!
