So, with a purpose of finding a miraculous cure, I set off to Asda to buy something that would hopefully calm it down as well as any other spots on my face. I seem to be having quite a bad month just now in terms of spots. My face seems to breaking out quite a lot, and not just at THAT TIME OF THE MONTH either. I also bought a face scrub in Asda which I shall review soon as well.
Also available in Boots and Superdrug.
The other product I picked up was Clean & Clear's Advantage Spot Treatment Gel. I think I may have used this a good few years back but I can't really remember how I got on with it so I decided to give it another try. And besides, it was reduced to just £3 (from £4).
Clean & Clear say: Immediate action. Helps reduce spots within 4 hours. Helps keep spots away*
*with daily usage
How to use: Apply the invisible gel directly on this spot. Suitable to use under and over make-up, whenever needed.
Let me just start off by saying, DON'T USE THIS OVER MAKE-UP. It literally just ruins all your hard work from the morning and wipes all the foundation, concealer, blusher and whatnot off. I ended up with a circle of my face that was a slight different colour because all the make-up had been rubbed off that area. It made my spot appear more prominent. Not a good look.
As for "helps reduce spots within 4 hours", LIES. Pure, utter, LIES. Feeling quite happy with myself knowing that my spot would be reduced in just 4 little hours, I applied the gel to the monstrosity of my lip and
Reading reviews on the internet, I have found that there are a lot of mixed reviews out there. Some people say it worked wonders, others say it made their spots worse or did nothing at all. Sadly, I fall in to that nothing at all category. But you never know, maybe you will be in luck and it will work for you. It's worth a try as it isn't especially dear but don't expect any miracles.
