Blemish Busters.......

You guys are probably sick of me harpering on about my blemishes and over the last few months, i have found products that really do deliver! Christmas is just around the corner and we have all had those times where there is a special event, and a spot rears its ugly head! I have found these products help to banish those spots easily and effectively.

Elemis Skin Clear Treatment Gel*

This treatment spot gel is a god send and i tend to use this before bed. It is a clear gel that contains salicylic acid, which is great for de-clogging pores. It allows the spots to heal, reduce redness and swelling without drying the skin. It feels tingly when applied to the skin but in my books, it means that it's working!

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil

I use this in conjunction with my Elemis gel and apply it to the skin once all my makeup has been removed. I let it settle into the skin and work its magic, then before bed i apply the Elemis treatment gel. The tea tree oil doesn't dry out my skin and helps soothe out the skin. It is great for those red, throbbing spots because it helps calm it down. When i'm at home and going through a breakout phase, i just apply it to the spots to help get rid of it quicker.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Toner

I have mainly been using this toner at night, along with my other treatment products. This toner feels very refreshing on the skin and removes any traces of dirt or makeup left from cleansing. You do have to shake the bottle to activate the mattifying powders. This toner has helped with my skin, preventing from blemishes appearing on other parts of my face.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask

I have been using this twice a week when my breakouts have appeared and trust me this mask works wonders! It feels very cooling on the skin and the tea tree oil helps with the spots. It cleanses and soothes the skin without making my face feel dry. I like using this after a hot bath or shower, as my pores are open and the mask helps draw out the impurities.

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (FULL BLOG POST)

The Effaclar Duo is a go-to product that is suitable to use day or night. I use this after i have toned but before moisturiser. It has a watery consistency and takes a couple of minutes to absorb into the skin. I only use this product when i have had a breakout and on the area of the blemishes because it does tend to dry out my skin a little. I have a full review with before and after pictures.

  1. I love TBS tea tree oil series too! Especially the tea tree oil, toner and face wash :)

  2. I have a lot of blemishes and swear by Effaclar-Duo, but never tried the Tea Tree range so think I need to check that out. The toner particularly looks right up my street :) Thanks for the great post! x

  3. Hi Selina! I also swear by Effaclar Duo. It's part of my night routine and I've mentioned in in my November faves. This is definitely an effective treatment. I really want tot try TBS tea tree masque as I've been loving the toner a the pore minimiser. Xxxx

  4. The tea tree products from the body shop are great, I have not tried the Elemis skin clear treatment gel but it does sound very good so I shall give that a try, thanks for sharing. x

  5. I wholeheartedly recommend the ELF Zit Zapper. It has worked wonders at drying out new spots and reducing redness quickly. Now I just need something that will fade the scars quickly... Sigh!

  6. I use this really cheap drugstore product that's called sulfur ointment. It's like 4 bucks and it works amazing on blemishes.

  7. That face mask looks like something I need I have some break outs off and on.

  8. I had the worst breakout of my life & I blamed tea tree .. Maybe after reading your blog il give it another try as I've got full bottles going to waste .. Fingers crossed :(
