Have you ever experienced love at first sight… with a skincare product? I HAVE, for the first time – ever!
It’s been quite some time since I’ve treat myself to some new skin care products, if you know me or read my blog you’ll know that I’m trying my best to get through my beauty and skincare narnia without adding more to it. I’ve hit a brick wall point with my collection that it’s becoming impossible to get through one single item, and even more impossible to add things in… so the last few months have been a struggle, watching new releases come and go and not picking a single thing up.
Until… I found myself browsing the beauty section of ASOS with a 20% off discount ready to make some damage. I gave in. I made a new skincare purchase.
SUPER SPOT REMOVER – BLEMISH TREATMENT GEL
The name itself had me intrigued, and since I’ve recently struggled with a breakout the name ‘super spot remover Blemish treatment gel’, had me feeling like this connection was meant to be. Super spot remover was enough for me, I added it straight to my basket along with my clothes haul and disregarded the painful £15.50 price tag for a tiny 10ml bottle. Not something I would usually do lightly, but ya’ girls desperate for clear skin right now.
I made the decision so fast, that I didn’t give myself the opportunity to read any reviews before making the purchase. So right after my order had been placed, I did a quick Google search to find so many incredible reviews on this. I knew that Origins are a reputable brand so it couldn’t disappoint too much; BUT, these reviews! I thought it had to be too good to be true, surely?
So, what exactly is it?
“A fast-acting spot treatment gel that quickly fights, fades and prevents blemishes.“
What can it do for me?
“Battle breakouts fast! Just a dab of blemish-busting Salicylic Acid instantly helps speed healing. While anti-spot technology helps visibly correct lingering discolouration. Skin-calming Red Algae helps visibly relieve redness. And to help skin stay spotless, super exfoliators eliminate excess oils and pore-clogging debris.“
MY FIRST IMPRESSIONS AND THOUGHTS
As briefly outlined in the opening of this blog post, I experienced pure love at first sight with this product. Maybe not sight, but definitely love at first try. I’ve struggled with my skin for YEARS. Since around 14 years old, I’ve been tackling hormonal, teenage, bad-diet, stress breakouts. The list goes on and on… and so does it when it comes to all of the items I’ve used to try and clear them up.
Although my skin is in the best condition it has ever been, I do still suffer with the occasional breakout. We’re only human after all. You would think that by now, I know the perfect solution to manage a break out or those uncomfortable under-skin spots, but – I haven’t. I’ve been starting to feel like I had exhausted all methods and products that it was getting to the point that nothing would shift my breakouts and I would just have to wait for the storm to pass every time.
Until I tried the Origins Super Spot Remover out.
I’ve experienced many, “WOW! This works SO well” moments… but never anything like I have with this product. The Origins Super Spot Remover is a treatment that I’ve been automatically reaching for every time I somewhat even feel a spot creeping up on me for the last few months.
Before going to sleep, I apply a thin layer of the treatment gel using a cotton bud over each spot and blemish, allow it to dry down and simply go to sleep. The next morning, most spots are completely vanished with no scarring left behind, no sensitivity, no redness and no dryness. In other cases, where I have a really uncomfortable, painful under the skin spot – it either brings it out, or reduces it massively. Within another day or so treating it with this gel, it’s gone. These were the kinda’ spots I was seeing stick around for a week at a time… but this, this lil’ baby is the holy grails of spot treatments. It’s the one that sweeps all others off the shelf, the one that makes you wonder why you never tried it before. Ok, I get it. We’re getting a little deep… but this product has changed my skincare routine.
I’VE LEARNT TO EMBRACE MY SKIN
Embracing my skin when I’ve not been comfortable with it for many years hasn’t been the easiest of things to do. I had gotten to the point where I couldn’t wear or enjoy makeup anymore, as I just knew my skin would punish me for days afterwards. Since using this treatment as regular skincare item in my regime and making better decisions with the makeup I choose to wear I’ve barely suffered from spots that I’m too uncomfortable to go bare-faced with.
Origins Super Spot Remover Blemish Treatment has also won 2017’s best beauty winner by Stylist Magazine and is suitable for all skin types. The array of magical ingredients mean they work to correct discolouration, while calming red algae helps relieve stress and the Salicylic Acid assists in healing the skin while also exfoliating and removing excess oil.
Since using this item, I’ve also found out that Origins as a brand not only care about us – the customers, but the planet too. They formulate their products without parabens, mineral oil, animal products and more.
The price could be a little off-putting to some, but this 10ml bottle has lasted me a long time already with so much more use out of it… it’s worth every penny.
