Kiehl's Blue Herbal Spot Treatment

Just recently, I've had a few breakouts that are far from ideal. I don't get that many spots, so when I do, I moan constantly. I did actually want to try the Origins Super Spot Remover but I couldn't find it anywhere quickly, so I popped into the Kiehl's at Waterloo station and picked this up instead.

It's a salicylic acid treatment, well known for its blemish treating properties. Prepare for a slight sting when you apply it - personally, I quite like that, as it makes me feel something is really being done. The best thing is that it can be applied over make-up, so you can put it on throughout the day and it does offer relief to those really painful bumps under the skin.

This doesn't produce results overnight; it takes two or three days to fully kick in. For me, that's how long spots tend to last anyway, so its difficult to know how effective this treatment really is. What it definitely does, though, is offer some pain relief, and given that it's a clear gel, it's far more usable during the day than my trusty Germolene.

I'm going to make an online order of the Origins one, so I can do a comparison next time I need it. I'll keep you posted.

Kiehl's Blue Herbal Spot Treatment is £15 and available here.
