Knowing how to remove blemishes fast is simple thanks to the Neogen A-Clear Aid Soothing Spot Kit. Created to soothe angry blemishes quickly, it’s definitely a staple in my beauty cabinet.
Although I usually don’t suffer much with blemishes, I’m often prone to getting them around my chin at the same time every month. More often than not, these blemishes are hidden under the surface of the skin and cause redness and inflammation.
Needless to say, this makes the blemishes and surrounding skin super sensitive and difficult to cover with make up. I’ve been searching for a solution for a while and I was thrilled with Neogen kindly sent me this spot kit to try.
First of all, I love the design. Inside a sleek box is a professional two-step spot treatment consisting of a spot cleaner in a glass bottle and spot ampoules, which sort of look like needles. I love it!
As previously mentioned, this two-step kit targets a variety of blemishes. Step one, the spot cleaner focuses on removing dead skin cells, stubborn blackheads, whiteheads and preventing excess oil production to leave skin looking and feeling healthier.
Ingredients include salicylic acid to clear skin from impurities and reduce clogged pores and tea tree to eliminate inflammation. Liquorice is a key ingredient to help regulate oil production in the skin and promote clear skin. Often, skincare targeted for blemishes is too astringent and harsh but this also contains guaiazulene to soothe irritated skin.
Step two is a fancy looking spot ampoule (this kit comes with a box of 10 ampoules) that contains salicylic acid, tea tree, liquorice and guaiazulene. It also has centella asiastica extract in it to prevent scarring and further blemishes forming. Extracts of green are perfect for eliminating redness and skin irritation. It also has antibacterial properties.
This kit is so easy to use. First, I cleanse and tone my skin then dip a clean cotton bud into the glass bottle. I apply it gently to the affected areas and wait a minute for it to dry. Next, I apply an appropriate amount of the step two ampoule and tap it in softly. I wait for it to dry and continue with the rest of my morning/evening routine.
What I love about this kit is that it makes such a difference in a short amount of time. Blemishes are less noticeable and the skin feels protected.
Although I’m gentle when I remove my make up, sometimes if I have a large blemish, it can accidentally burst, meaning the spot is wet. Not good if I need to wear make up straight away. This kit stops the blemish weeping and means my make up goes on easier. How wonderful. I always turn to this for these emergency situations.
Even when said blemish has gone, I continue using this for up to a week afterwards to help keep my skin clear. I would definitely buy this kit when I finish this one!
