I wish I didn’t need to use a spot treatment. I wish I had perfectly clear skin! But I don’t, and without some sort of spot treatment my skin would be havoc! As I sit and write this post my skin isn’t having a good week. It’s probably hormonal but my skin just seems to be loving breaking out on me. Nevermind though, you have to get on with things, and a spot treatment certainly helps those blemishes get on with that healing thing.
I’ve always wanted to try Lush Grease Lightning, as I’d heard so many good things about it! Everyone pretty much said their spots had reduced in size and heralded this as their skin saviour! Either they exaggerated massively, or my spots just take a whole lot longer to reduce in size. I’m going to disagree with the latter though and blame it on the rave reviews that are probably exaggerated. Don’t get me wrong it is a good spot treatment, they do reduce in size ever so slightly and they certainly heal faster using this, and I can’t forget to mention that redness does get reduced. It sounds perfect, but it does all of them things minimally (except for the healing bit). So maybe I had too high of an expectation for this, or maybe the special spot fighting ingredients just don’t work to their optimum on my skin, but either way it’s not blown me away. I don’t see a repurchase on the horizon, but I can see myself using it up. This isn’t a massive bitchfest, it’s simply highlighting that just because some people love a product doesn’t mean you will. Grease Lightning is a mediocre product, but one that doesn’t irritate my skin further so it gets brownie points for that!
If you have any spot treatment recommedations, then sling them my way!
