C: So recently I have been trying out and reviewing a lot of Lush’s natural skincare and next up is their Grease Lightning spot treatment. This costs £5.95 for 45g of product, which considering you only need one pump each time you use it is a bargain!
Lush describe this product as: “a powerful combination of ingredients that will nip any breakouts in the bud without upsetting the skin around them. We use an infusion of antibacterial and antiseptic rosemary, thyme and tea tree, as well as antioxidant-rich grape juice and witch hazel, which is astringent and anti-inflammatory and is said to soothe redness. This product is ideally applied when you feel a spot is about to erupt – prevention is better than cure.”
So now for my review… unfortunately although Lush claim that this will not upset the skin around my blemishes, this product did not suit my sensitive skin. It caused a lot of redness and also made my skin break out into more spots than I had before – please keep in mind that my skin is super sensitive, I have eczema and allergies so I do react to products that the majority of people would be fine with. However, my boyfriend (L) also used this product and he loved it (he has oily, spotty skin that is not as sensitive as mine).
He used this every morning and night after using Lush’s Ultrabland and the Tea Tree Water Toner and it really helped to clear up his blemishes and help prevent new ones from appearing! His only comments were that you can only pump out the same amount of product each time, so as his blemishes started disappeaing (hooray!) he had too much product and was having to waste it. It also makes your face feel a bit stiff? Which is odd.. but if you apply a moisturiser on top this goes away!
So overall for L this was an amazing bargain, and we would definitely recommend it if you have oily, spot prone skin but aren’t sensitive to Tea Tree! Let us know what you think! #twolittleowlsblog
