Trying tonnes of different products all the time just to find that one perfect product has never been an easy task. Going by a company’s claims about their products is a risky affair but sometimes you ought to don that guinea pig cap and see and believe things for yourself. In the process of doing so, your skin can go through turbulent times that includes acne breakouts or redness and this thought itself is very scary. L So, when my skin was experiencing one such bad phase I was on a lookout for a product that was allergy tested and fragrance free and that suited my combination skin at the same time. So, after doing some online research and store to store enquiries I finalized this product that I will be reviewing today.
Product name: Clinique anti-blemish solutions clinical clearing gel
Price: RS 1300 / $17
Quantity: 15 ml
Our daily treatment gel starts clearing blemishes upon application. Helps prevent new ones from making unwelcome appearance. Making visibly clearer skin a way of life.
My experience with the product:
I went to get a spot treatment gel but the SA at the Clinique store said they were out of stock and she suggested me this clearing gel instead. Which can be used both as a spot treatment and for overall application too. Plus, this was a new launch by them. After test application in the store on a live acne that I was suffering from I decided to give this stuff a chance.
Now, what made me pick this particular product was that it was meeting all my requirements of being allergy tested, fragrance free and it was made to cater all skin types. In addition to these points what I also liked about it was it was a clear gel which was not visible when applied.
I have tried and tested this product on my acne and here are my thoughts:
After cleansing, toning and moisturizing I would apply this gel on the areas that needed attention both A.M and P.M. Now what I have noticed is when you start applying this gel on a fully formed acne or blister it does not show results overnight which I was hoping for but it takes a minimum of 3 days to suppress the acne bump and also I observed that just spot applying this 3 to 4 times a day was more beneficial than only 2 times a day. By the way, if applied on an already grown pimple or bump there are chances that the blemish will leave its mark and this gel won’t be of much help to lighten or eradicate those marks. Another thing is that if you start using this gel on acne/bump that is still under your skin and has not developed this works way well in such cases by not allowing or giving it a chance to break out. You can use this under your makeup and even on top of your makeup as it won’t be apparent. The gel is clear and immediately evaporates upon application leaving a film like appearance which is otherwise not visible. You may feel a sense of dryness and stiffness around the area you apply it but it does not sting.
