Next review :-) This time it's about the "sister" of the new Spot Remover Blemish Treatment Pads - the Super Spot Remover Blemish Treatment Gel.
This is another product from the Goodie Bag and new to the Origins family. If you've read my review about the pads *click* you will see those two are very close when it comes to the ingredients.
Here is Origins official description:
Super Spot Remover™ Blemish treatment gel contains Salicylic Acid to effectively tackle existing blemishes. Pores are cleaned out allowing bacteria to be neutralized so the healing process can begin. Pores become visibly smaller. Scutellaria along with Cucumber and Apple Extracts target scars and hyperpigmentation, helping visibly fade both old and new discoloration. Anti-irritants such as Caffeine and Red Algae help calm skin while Oregano and Clove essential oils leave a rejuvenating scent.
So what do I think?
I used this gel several times after I came back from Egypt, cause my skin kept breaking out, I guess it was the different climate and the food.
Since the pads were so amazing on my boyfriends skin, I had high expectations. Sadly, the gel didn't blow me away as much as I wanted it to. It is definitely not a one-time usage wonder, it took about two days to see a real difference. That's not bad, I just expected it to work faster. I have a spot remover gel from Garnier and that works much faster.
My boyfriend used it as well and on his skin the results were much better. I can't tell you why, maybe I just had immune Egypt-pimples or so. *g* The gel took the redness of his pimples away and reduced the size visibly after one night, on me it didn't.
So, if you are looking for a spot removing gel that isn't harsh, works and you don't need your pimple to go away in the next couple of hours, this could be the right product for you. I must say, I'd rather stay with the "hardcore" stuff from Garnier. *gg*
Hope this was helpful.
