Lush: Grease Lightning Spot Treatment

2014 for me is all about stepping up my skincare routine, I'm a big believer in changing little things that can ultimately have a bigger impact on your health and well being. Since getting married in 2012 my lifestyle has changed quite dramatically, I've lost weight (not enough, but some) increased my exercise and started to take better care of myself. 

Whilst taking a regular look around my local Lush, I decided that I would pick up the Grease Lightning Spot Treatment. I've been suffering a lot with breakouts recently (something I have been putting down to stress) and have ended up in a bit of a vicious cycle as when I get stressed, I get spots which makes me more stressed and the cycle never ends.

The product has a gel like consistency and contains aloe vera, rosemary, thyme and tea tree. Another key ingredient is witch hazel which contains anti inflammatory properties to reduce redness of the skin.

I started off using this every evening all over once I had removed my make up and cleansed my face as my breakouts were quite bad but about a week into using it I found that it was making my face quite dry so switched to every other day instead.

I have noticed a big improvement in my skin but it's not a product I want to become completely reliant on. I think it is best to use this as a target treatment rather than in a regime.

The 45g bottle costs £5.95 but you only need about 1/2 pumps to cover your face or a small dab to cover an individual blemish so it lasts quite a long time. Once I have finished this bottle I will definitely be picking up another. Lush triumphs again!
