“ Brand: Wilkinson / Type: Blemish Control „
I bought this Skinology Tea Tree Intensive Spot Cream on a recent visit to Wilkinsons, when I was looking for some new skincare products. My skin was being quite mischievous and I was getting a few more spots than usual so when I saw there was a 2 for £1.50 offer on their own Tea Tree range I jumped at the chance to try them and picked up this and another product. It costs 98p if bought alone.
This cream comes in a squeezy plastic tube with a screw off lid. The tube is opaque which I find annoying as it means you can't see easily when it's running out. The tube has a thin nozzle which I guess is designed for applying the cream directly to the spot, but I never use these types of nozzles this way, I just squeeze some onto my finger and apply it from there.
The cream has a mid consistency, not runny but not too thick either, so it's easy to control how much you get out of the tube so you don't waste loads. It has a smooth, creamy texture which feels really nice applied to the skin. It also has an instant cooling effect when I apply it. It has a fresh scent of peppermint which is nice but not too noticeable.
The cream smooths onto my skin really easily and as long as I don't overdo it, it forms an invisible layer on the skin so you can't tell it's there. If you use too much though it does take a bit of effort to make sure it doesn't show up. Once it's on the skin I can't feel it there, although it does form a slight protective layer it doesn't feel greasy, sticky or like it's left a residue, it feels as though it's sunk in.
I honestly wasn't expecting much from this, having tried pretty much every other spot treatment under the sun and finding none of them really work, but I actually found this one really effective. I find it helps to bring spots down really quickly, sometimes if I apply it to a spot at night it's actually gone by the morning, whcih nothing else has ever done for me. I also find it really effective when applied to spots that I can feel forming, and 9 times out of 10 it stops them from appearing.
All in all I couldn't be happier with this product, it's amazing, definitely the best spot treatment I've ever used, and I certainly won't be wasting any more money on expensive products that don't work!
