Step forward Witch Blemish Gel, the bargainous £3.29 spot treatment that actually works. Unlike the Origins offering, this Witch gel doesn't cause the problematic area/spot to tingle because if does not contain Salysisic Acid. This gel claims to: dissolve excess oils, clear pores, deep cleanse and tackle breakouts. It is also oil free and has been dermatolically tested.
Witch say that the Blemish Gel treatment is suitable for all skin types but it is best suited to those who particularly have oily or combination skin. I have combination skin (I'm very sensitive and eczema prone with a slightly oily T Zone) and I can definitely say that this gel helps to absorb excess oil. I'm not overly oily but after applying a layer of this at night, I definitely feel a difference when I wake up the following morning. As with anything, those who have particularly sensitive skin need to be cautious when using something new. Spot treatments in particular can often be very harsh and aggravate sensitive skin but I'm pleased to report that after using this for a little under a month I am getting on great with it and my skin doesn't seem to be affected in any way which is great!
This Blemish Gel is effective, won't break the bank, is kind to skin, is from a skincare brand that has been using Witch Hazel for over 40 years and is readily available in the UK. Sometimes spot treatments can smell really strong and harsh but this Blemish Gel doesn't really smell of much. There is a slight smell of Witch Hazel, because the product contains natural extracts of this but it isn't too offensive. I absolutely love this treatment so I will definitely be repurchasing some when this tube runs out and I'm also keen to try some more of Witch's products!
