Spot Treatment Review

Occasionally I get really bad break outs and when I do the first thing on my mind is getting rid of any blemishes as fast as possible. I have tried three different solutions:
Essence PureSkin Anti-Spot Gel: This gel claims to rapidly dry up spots and impurities but in reality just made my skin feel very tight in the areas I applied it and it felt like my skin was burning. No pain no gain is completely untrue; If something hurts it is very unlikely to be doing you any good! This gel had no visible effects on a blemish despite applying several times a day as directed. Plus the blemish lasted just as long as usual.
e.l.f. Zit Zapper: This liquid is supposed to “fight and prevent acne, reduce redness and swelling and minimise pore size”. I certainly felt like it helped reduce the size of visible pores as my skin felt a little tighter after use. I would not at all say that it reduces redness for me but that is probably because it contains tea tree oil, which I am mildly allergic to. This product is dispensed my rollerball which I find a bit unhygienic as it was difficult to apply the liquid to a cotton bud and then to my face as with the other two I tested. This was not my favourite although I did think that it reduced the amount of time the blemish was present!
Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Spot Treatment Gel: This product worked best for me. It visibly reduced redness and spots would only last a day before disappearing, I highly recommend this product.
