In December I am always spotty. It’s the chocolate you see. I do not shy away from the Quality Street tin. Nor a Terry’s Chocolate Orange. Or anything made by Lindt. I like it. My skin, however, does not.
This year I’m also spotty in November, joy of joys, but for a different reason. Pregnancy acne. Didn’t have it the first time, not loving it this round tbh. And these guys are persistent.
The chocolate blemishes can usually be dispatched through regular use of the marvellous bareMinerals Anti-Imperfection Treatment Gelée Cleanser, £17. Not these zits. These suckers have roots.
So I’ve called in the big guns, the Origins Super Spot Remover, £15.50. Or rather, the teeny tiny guns. That’s £15.50 for 10ml, don’t let the photos fool you, the bottle is minute. On first look I thought there’d been a mistake, that I’d been sent a sample instead of the real McCoy.
But maybe the best things do come in small packages. For it is ever so effective. Dotted on to spots with a cotton bud after cleansing at night makes a huge improvement to the zit sitch come the morning.
It stings. Boy does it sting. So brace for that. And follow up with a heavy duty moisturiser or facial oil to counteract dryness. Because my face is peeling. But the spots, they gone.
Til next time,
