I bought this during a period of time when my skin was being terrible and I'd run out of my Witch Blemish Stick and I wanted to try something new. I have now nearly finished using the whole tube so I thought I could give it a detailed review. I find Clean & Clear products to be very hit and miss some I really like and others I just don't get on with at all. This is from the Advantage range which is designed to help fight against spots. This is the sort of product I use when I have just a few spots if I have really bad skin then I will use the Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturiser as that really helps to clear up my skin. Clean & Clear products tend to have a high percentage of alcohol in them so they can dry out your skin which is why I only use them when I have spots and I make sure I follow up with a really hydrating moisturiser (I am currently using Garnier's Essentials Hydrating Cream).
This gel claims to have immediate actions, reduce spots in 4 hours and helps reduce spots. Now I don't really believe that any spot treatment product will immediately reduce your spots I just don't think that it is possible however some are more effective than others. You can apply this gel whenever you want and you can apply it on top of makeup. I usually apply this twice a day if I have got spots and sometimes I will apply it on top of makeup and because it is a clear gel it doesn't really affect you makeup,
I can safely say that this does not reduce spots immediately but it does reduce spots. I find that if I apply the gel in the morning then the spot does look smaller when it comes to bedtime and if I apply it again at night time by the morning it will either be gone or much smaller it depends on the size of the spot.
When you apply this onto your spot it does tingle a bit, which I find is the case with a lot of products that are aimed to treat spots. For me I don't mind the tingling as to me that suggests that it's doing something but for those of you with sensitive skin it might not be suitable for you. I do find that this does dry my skin out but as long as I apply plenty of moisturiser it isn't a problem.
Overall I am really happy with this spot gel. I find it more hygienic than the Witch Blemish Stick as with the Blemish Stick you rub the entire stick onto the blemish which means that bacteria can remain on it. I also really like that this is very small so if you wanted to you could carry it around in your bag if you wanted.
Have you tried this?
