This is my top tip for those little blemishes. It's one of those little secret beauty products which nobody raves about but does the job amazingly well. I swear by it.
Basically it's a small tube of green cooling gel, you put it over the said blemish and you then feel a cooling, if not slight stinging sensation.
I tend to use this product at night, as it doesn't absorb easily into the skin and isn't really suitable for day use for that reason. But once it's on it usually dries within 10 mins and I sleep with it on my skin. In the morning I usually wake up to either find the blemish significantly reduced in size/density or even completely gone.
I have tried a lot of similar products on the market, as it's always the case that just when you're due to have an evening out this blemishes arise and you just want a quick fix. I love this product and would rate it higher than a lot of the brand names for this purpose that are currently on the market. It's not always a complete miracle cure, but I think it's one of the best you can hope for.
This is the best thing for spots that I have found. Its a cool gel that stings a bit if you put it onto an open spot (says on the bottle your not supposed to but if you can cope with the stinging then it dries the spot out and makes it a lot better very quickly), generally it just feels nice and cool on the spots though and makes them disappear a lot faster than if you leave them alone. Its fairly inexpensive and you only need a very little bit. The only downside I can think of to this gel is that it is a bit sticky and dosn't sink into your skin completley for a very long time, even after it has dried. This is ok however if you put it on before you go to bed and then just wash your face in the morning.
I remember using this product sometime ago, when it was first out. I bought it because I kept getting red patches or blemishes on the area around my nose. From what I can recall, the product is a clear cool gel like substance with a very faint scent of herbs. It is good in that it does not leave any white marks on your skin after applying it unlike other creams. However, what disappointed me was that although initially it appeared to lessen the blemish what tended top happen was that the area on which the gel was applied would get more oily after a few hours. It is for this reason that I stopped using the product as its effects were obviously only temporary and actually caused your skin to produce excess oil to replace what it dried up. I wouldn't really recommend this product even if it is not too pricey Thanks very much for reading this review !
