Clinique Anti-Blemish Clearing Gel | New On The Market

Hello everyone, today I am back with another 'New On The Market' post and it's going to be based on the Clinique Anti-blemish Solutions Clearing Gel. This is part of Clinique's new Anti-Blemish line which is targeted at people with oily/blemish prone skin. Which is my skin type. This line offers a range of cleansers, toners, treatments and masks all targeted at spot prone skin. As it is Clinique it is on the pricier side at £20 for 30ml, but I think it is important to invest in a good spot treatment that will actually work to help your skin because let's face it, who likes spots?

When I bought this my skin was going through a bad patch and I was suffering quite bad breakouts on my forehead, which I never really got before, So I bought this product in desperation really and I wasn't disappointed! I have tried so many spot treatments in the past but none of them I have noticed to have made a dramatic difference, but this product certainly did. The gel is a clear liquid that I apply twice a day after I moisturize in the areas I need it. It can tend to sting your spots a bit, but that is what tells you that it's working! After a day of using it, I noticed that my spots had calmed down and reduced it redness already. After continuing to use it, it really helped to reduce the size of spots and I also realized that it left less scaring. The only down side I found with this product is that it has a really quite strong alcohol scent to it which I know a lot of people don't like, however if you can get past that it's an all round great product. I wouldn't recommend applying this all over your face as it tends to dry out certain areas as it is so strong. If you have dry skin I don't think this is the product for you as it dries out the spot and will just aggravate and further dry out your skin

Overall I have fallen in love with this product and would highly recommend it to anyone who suffers with blemish prone skin. I am now in fact on my second tube of this, which just shows how much I love it! Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this post.
