Origins Super Spot Remover

Origins Super Spot Remover: Origins/ Debenhams (£12)

Origins Super Spot remover is a blemish treatment gel. The product is packed full of Salicylic Acid which is great for calming breakouts and reducing redness.  I've used products like this before, especially ones in my teenage years (tea tree zit zappers anyone?) but never ones that I actually felt worked. The Super Spot Remover however has helped calm spots and reduced the size and redness overnight. Especially the horrible under the skin bumps that don't come to a head that are just sore and uncomfortable. It does sting a little upon application, especially when you apply it to broken skin.  Im presuming this is the Salicylic acid, but it's not painful and subsides very quickly.

By no means is this a miracle product. You don't just wake up in the morning spot free, but I would say there is a very noticeable difference after its been applied. The bottle is TINY but you only need a very small dab of product on each spot. I use a cotton bud per spot to apply the product so Im not spreading infection around the face. I typically apply this after I've cleansed my face in the evening and before I put my moisturiser on.
Skincare Disclaimer: I personally think skincare is incredibly subjective, I'd never run out and buy something on the recommendation of one person. What works for me, might not work for you. Remember to always look up other reviews and make sure you reference the reviewers skin type. My skin is Oily-Combination, I don't tend to get breakouts but when I do they are on my chin. Also cutting out dairy from my diet has also improved my skin of late.

  11. I found the first spot remover origins launched a few years ago! It works so well. Does nip when you first apply, but definitely worth the money!
