A few months ago I was sent this Skin Clearing Treatment from PurOrganica who are a natural skincare brand based in the US. PurOrganica skincare products do not contain parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, sulfates, lactin, gluten and GMO ingredients. All products are cruelty-free and are manufactured in FDA registered eco-laboratories. I have a few PurOrganica products already and the Ultimate Youth Eye Gel Treatment (which I reviewed here) is actually one of my all time favourite skincare products. I was hoping I would like the Skin Clearing Treatment as much as the eye gel but I’ve not really had the chance to use it on my skin as it is very rare that I get pimples or blemishes. This week however I have unfortunately broke out in a couple of blemishes and I have two pimples that have appeared on my face – so I have finally gotten around to trying and testing the Skin Clearing Treatment properly and I have been using it daily for about a week now.
Skin Clearing Treatment:
”The Skin Clearing Spot Treatment is a powerful and effective drying solution for men and women with troubled skin types that are looking to attain a clean, clear and beautiful appearance. This advanced fading treatment is the best when it comes to reducing the appearance of acne, whether it be pimples, blackheads, whiteheads or even just leftover redness from an old blemish that isn’t fading quickly enough. The formula contains 2.5% Salicylic Acid, Niacinamide and 10% MSM, which work together to help minimise whiteheads and blackheads on the spot. These are three of the ingredients studies have shown to be most effective for people looking to get rid of acne quickly and easily. This drying spot corrector is specially designed to fix your blemishes easily and efficiently – with a simple dab onto the face with a cotton swab, the Skin Clearing Treatment is an easy at-home remedy to get the ‘before and after’ results you’re looking for when it comes to clearer and more even skin.” – PurOrganica
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: The Skin Clearing Treatment comes in an outer cardboard box and inside is the Skin Clearing Treatment which comes in a 30 ml glass bottle. It has a black screw lid which also works as a dropper. The packaging is quite simple – nothing special really and there is information about the product printed on both the box and the bottle. The treatment itself is a cloudy white-greyish liquid and it smells really strong like alcohol. It says on the bottle that it does contain Isopropyl Alcohol as well as Cucumber Fragrance although the alcohol is the only thing I can smell.
INGREDIENTS: Isopropyl Alcohol, Deionized Aqua, 10% Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Vegetable Glycerin, Bentonite Clay, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), 2.5% Capryloyl Salicylic Acid, Cucumber Fragrance.
HOW TO USE: Do not shake the bottle before using. Dip a cotton swab into the bottom of the treatment and gently dab onto blemishes and allow to dry. You can also use the included dropper for more convenience.
Like I said above, I have broken out in a few pimples and blemishes on my face and my complexion is looking a bit on the red side. I’ve been applying the Skin Clearing Treatment to my blemishes, pimples and red areas every night before bedtime. I have been using the included dropper instead of a cotton bud to apply it to my face and thanks to the Bentonite Clay – after a couple of minutes of applying the treatment to my skin, the clear-ish liquid turns into a chalky white colour on the skin.
I’ve been leaving the treatment on my skin overnight and each morning I have been waking up and it is still chalky white on my face. Each time I have washed it off my skin has not looked as red as before and my blemishes and pimples seem to be fading slowly. After a week of using – my blemishes are not as noticeable, my pimples aren’t as big and swollen my complexion on a whole has started to look a little healthier. I love how my skin looks after using the Skin Clearing Treatment – I think it does work at helping to clear up blemishes and pimples, and my skin is starting to look clearer but it is not a miracle worker, the results are not instant but after every use you will see better results each time.
I do like the Skin Clearing Treatment and I would definitely recommend it for those with problem skin but I have had to discontinue using it and I sadly won’t be repurchasing. Some of you may know that I have chemical sensitivities / allergies and certain smells, chemicals, ingredients cause me to have migraines and headaches. This product is probably the worst one I have used in ages and I have had violent migraines in my temples and eye sockets for a week straight now since using. No amount of headache pills have gotten rid of them. I’m suspecting it is the alcohol which is in the ingredients formula. So, although I do like the product and it has helped clear up my blemishes and pimples – I cannot bring myself to use it again, the headaches were so severe that I was beginning to feel ill. If you also have sensitivities and chemical allergies I would avoid this product. If you don’t ever get headaches after using certain products – lucky you! You will be absolutely fine after using the Skin Clearing Treatment and you shouldn’t experience any migraines.
