"A unique new solution that clears unsightly breakouts with visible improvements in 2-3 days"
You've probably already seen the posts where I was moaning about a lot of breakouts (post dissertation stress) and it was around this time that I was asked if I'd like to try out Skinetica*, an anti-blemish treatment intended to soothe, calm and clear your skin of blemishes. My skin has been subject to hormonal and stress related breakouts over the past few weeks, especially around my chin and cheeks, so it was the perfect time to give this spot clearing treatment a try! I'm not one who has suffered from bad acne or anything like that so I can't say how this product would work for acne prone skin, but this is how it has worked for my dry and occasionally spot-prone skin. At 21 I thought my breakouts would have calmed down as I no longer have the dreaded teenage skin, but nope, they're not showing any signs of leaving unfortunately.
All you need to do is add a little of the liquid solution onto a cotton pad and apply it to any affected areas, making sure to have your skin free of makeup or moisturiser as these will just get in the way of the spot treatment. The bottle advises that you use this solution every 12 hours so I tend to apply it in the morning before I put on my makeup and then in the evening before I go to bed so that my skin is getting plenty of breathing space during the treatment! The first thing that I noticed about Skinetica was its fairly strong chemical smell which you soon get used to so it's really not much of an issue, but I thought I'd just mention it anyway. You'd expect there to be some harsh chemicals in there because of the smell but surprisingly there are none to be found, and the formula is also non-greasy which makes it great for oily skin too.You get 80ml of product and so far there's still a lot more than half the bottle left after a few weeks of constant use so this bottle should last you quite a while.
Now on to the results.. I'm happy to say that Skinetica has made a difference to my spots. Hooray for that! 2 blasts of the product each day has dried up my spots and reduced their size which is always good to see, especially when this happens overnight and you wake up to much nicer looking skin. I've found that this treatment has also been great for reducing the marks left behind after breakouts as my chin is usually covered in little red marks for quite a while, so my skin is left looking a lot more calm and clear. As I've already said, I can't comment on how Skinetica would work for bad acne prone skin as my spots are a lot less severe but after reading great reviews from other people it looks like the product really works for people with bigger skin issues than mine. The appearance of spots has really been tackled by this product but I'm not entirely sure how well it has worked at preventing future breakouts as nothing really seems to stop my hormonal breakouts from happening. You can buy an 80ml bottle of Skinetica from their website (here) for £9.99.
