It’s not often that I get spots and pimples but when I do they are always painful as hell and no amount of concealer will cover them. I never squeeze my spots as this does more damage than good so I picked up this Blemish Gel from WITCH last week after I woke up to a small, painful pimple on my chin and I have been really surprised at how well and how fast it has worked.
Witch – a British skincare brand, has been around for absolute years – over 50 years. Their products are aimed at problem skin and are recommended for oily/combination skin although they are suitable for all skin types. The Blemish Gel helps to keep your pores clean by dissolving oil and it combats pimple-causing bacteria by tackling the causes of spots. It cleanses, tones, soothes and leaves the skin balanced, soft and healthy-looking. It also contains antioxidants which help to maintain normal skin renewal and encourage the natural cycle of skin replenishment, especially important for when your skin is recovering from a breakout.
Witch say they don’t test on animals too, although there is no cruelty free bunny on the back of the box!
The Blemish Gel comes in a small brightly coloured box and inside is the 35ml squeezy tube. The gel is a thick, transparent gel which has a mild, ‘clean’ scent.
I applied a little of the blemish gel to my sore, inflamed pimple and went to bed – when I woke the next morning, the pimple was still there but it was nowhere near as painful as it was the day before and it didn’t look as angry or red as it did. I applied the gel again that morning and a few times throughout the day and before bed and it slowly began to disappear. Witch recommend using the gel in the evening, before you go to sleep as it lets the gel do it’s work whilst you sleep! By day 3 of using the blemish gel, the angry pimple had gone and I was a happy girl.
I think the blemish gel works wonders on the odd pimple – it helps to tighten pores and close damaged skin, which reduces inflammation and re-infection and it encourage healing too. It definitely did the job for me! I’m not sure how it would work on acne or if you have severe spots/pimples but I would recommend the gel for the odd breakout. I’ll definitely use this again and there is enough product in the tube to last ages so not only does it work but it’s value for money too.
It is a great little product to have for emergencies.
