soap and glory dr spot

Friday, September 06, 2013
Somehow, breakouts and blemishes only seem to surface when you need to look your best. The night before a holiday, or the day before a party. For me, that's bound to happen. That's where this little tube comes in handy! I'm very skeptical about trying new spot gels and serums as most tend to break me out even further or just even irritate my skin. 



As for this working, I've noticed that it definitely reduces the size of blemishes, and what can seem like volcanoes, in as little as 2 days. The gel has a cooling sensation, rather than burning which feels much nicer on the skin! The formula includes lactic acid and salicylic acid which can improve skin texture and increase overall hydration, but it can irritate allergy-prone skin. It doesn't make the skin flaky or dry, which is another amazing thing about this product compared to the rest.

I love it when a product smells good, as it feels more like a luxury to put it on. However, the smell of this is absolutely awful. It smells extremely chemically and the packaging is awful. It's quite typical for spot serums to come in packaging like this, and because the tube is re-shapeable, when you take the cap off some product does leak out.

This gel costs about £8 and you can buy it from high street shops such as Boots. I have used many spot clearing gels and serums and for the price and quality, I can't fault this one!

    1. Make sure you let me know if you like it! Soap and Glory are well known for their scents in their products but this is the only one that let's it down on the scent front :( Xx
