Bye-Bye blemish??

I can never resist the temptation of Duty free - FACT.
So recently while popping to Spain for a week to visit family i of course had to have a little peep, and this i what i came away with:

Its the Clinique - anti blemish solutions spot treatment gel
It retails normally for £12.50 but i think i paid about £9-£10 in duty free for it.

Now i don't have bad skin by any means... 80% of the time its totally clear and blemish free. But when i do get one i bloody know about it and its a monster!!! So this product really appealed to me as i don't really need products to prevent spots day to day i just need them to target the ones i have, when i have them. 

Its a clear gel formula, which isn't too thick but its quite sticky (luckily this stickiness stops when dry). It does have quite a strong smell and is really drying so it may not be great for sensitive skin!!! 

So does it work? YES. Simple as that, yes it does. It dries spots out and makes them appear smaller over night. I apply it when i first feel a spot starting and i think it helps to stop them in their tracks. Clinique advise you use this twice a day (morning and night) and state that it can be used under make up - bonus!!!
I think i would stick to just using it when needed though as i think long term use could be really drying and cause more harm than good.

All in all i like this product and while yes its not the cheapest... it will last you a long time as you really don't need to use alot!!
