We’ve all been there whether its severe, few here or there or nothing for a long time then a ‘boil’ develops! Either way blemish cream is essential for every beauty survival kit, but there are so many out there! So from personal testing over the years here are my top five.
I hands down stand by this product! In my late teens I was working park time in boots and complained to the pharmacist about my spots as the conventional face washes, tea tree oils, etc were not working. He suggested trying Quinoderm products using the facewash and the spot treatment cream. Although at first it’s a little intense, it can tingle a little, it did get rid of my blemishes. I would definitely recommend asking your pharmacist. You can find the facewash in most chemists however there is a current shortage of creams. Do check the website for more information – http://www.quinoderm.co.uk/where-to- buy.2. Sudocrem
Ok it’s not a dedicated blemish cream, but I would suggest investing in a tub of Sudocream. If all else fails, or you have run out of your favourite blemish control with no means of finding some anytime soon this stuff does a good job at deflating nasty blemishes and soothing the angry red skin! Use overnight to ‘hit the spot’ 😉 I also find if you have had a blemish that’s leaving its mark it’s good for helping those areas to heal – as it is an antiseptic healing cream, does what it says on the tin!3. Good Things Pore-Fectly Clear
I love the Good Things range, it contains lots of natural ingredients which can be great if you suffer from sensitive skin or try to avoid using harsh chemicals. Pore-Fectly Clear face mask is part of the charcoal collection, an ingredient that seems to be very popular right now for its benefits. What I love about this product is that it’s gentle on the skin, so you can relax and unwind while enjoying this treatment, but this taken into account its surprisingly effective leaves my skin feeling refreshed.4. Freederm Gel
Now this product, I feel is quite similar to Quiniderm cream mentioned above and it is readily available in most chemists. It is meant to be used on the affected area to reduce the redness and deflate spots. Freederm has a wide range of cleansers, wipes and moisturisers to work together to reduce acne. Luckily I don’t need the full works in my older years, but its always handy to have the treatment gel in my cabinet for those surprise break outs.5. Pro Active 3 Step Core System
I have never had very bad skin, I have been quite lucky, however even the odd spot annoys me and what I hate about my skin is all the tiny bumps I get underneath. So I saw all these amazing celebrity endorsed adverts on the tele which couldn’t possibly be airbrushed, I was sold! Using this three step system my skin definitely felt cleaner and less oily. However, I have still chosen this product as my 5th pick because even though my skin improved, I wasn’t completely rid of blemishes altogether. I think if I suffered more with blemishes I would have noticed more of a difference.
