THE SKINCARE CHRONICLE: THE BLEMISH BUSTING MISSION CONTINUES



Witch 'Blemish Stick'


Last weekend I headed to London to celebrate Dan and I being together a year.
*Awhhh*
It was one weekend that I wouldn't have minded my skin behaving.
Obviously, that was not the case and once again my forehead erupted.

At the Leeds Blogger Meetup I was very lucky to recieve a goody bag which contained all
kinds of beauty goodies.
Included in the bag was the

Witch
'Naturally Clear' Blemish Stick



I have seen the brand knocking around on the high street for some time now, but
before now I had never actively tried their skincare products.

As I was in somewhat of a rush hastily piling my belongings into my suitcase,
I threw in the blemish stick in a bid to help clear up my forehead.

I stayed in London for 4 days.
I applied the blemish stick to the affected areas twice a day for the whole weekend.
Within two days, my forehead nasties were gone!



Admitedly, I used the blemish stick alongside my usual cleansers
(you can read more about my everyday skincare routine in HERE and HERE)
but it was very effective at reducing redness, swelling and the soreness.

The solidified gel tingles when appled to the affected area from the plastic applicator.
It kind of resembles a push pop, with the push up and down applicator.
A downside that I would note is the fact there is no way to push back down the stick
without using your hand, which ofcourse unless your hand are super clean is not very effective for keeping bacteria off the stick.


The blemish stick contains Witch Hazel extract which is a strong anti oxidant and astringent which is very good for, if like me you have oily/combination or acne from skin as it contricts the size of body tissues.
The blemish stick helps to break down excess oils and fight the bacteria that causes spots.

I apply the blemish stick on any effected areas after cleansing and also around my nose where I have a lot of redness. - The blemish stick really helps reduce redness.

I must admit this product does have a very potent scent which does linger for a good while after application.
*sexy*
I tend to warm a little of the product with my fingertips and apply to my forehead every other night to help keep those peskies away.

By Saturday night when Dan and I went to an amazing Greek restaurant on the Southbank, my forehead was almost completely clear.
Spots 0 -1 Hollie.
Have you ever tried the blemish stick or any other Witch products?
Love, Holl
