I picked this up on a whim as I do like Witch products, and I happened to have run out for my current daily moisturiser (Nivea Q10 Pore Refining Day Cream). I like the idea of being able to use a product that treats spots during the daytime alongside my make-up.
It comes in a slightly clinical looking 30ml tube and I have read a couple of reviews that mention that if you apply too much of this it can ‘blob’ after make-up application. However, I think from the size of the tube it represents a good idea of how much you should apply and the dispenser is only the size of a pin prick so it’s hard to over dispense. The moisturizer quite a rich, green cream which does indeed balance out any redness (I am prone to very angry looking spots!) and it feels quite soothing. If I want full-face moisturizing I mix it in with a squirt of Olay essentials and that loosens up the application a bit but still is quite effective on combating redness.
The only downside is that it smells appalling. Without meaning to be childish, it smells like toilet! I can’t pinpoint what is in that can be blamed for the scent, I’m guessing it’s just because it’s anti-bacterial. After I’ve finished my face the smell no longer lingers so the ends justify the means, but it is a shame. Despite this I would recommend this product as it will be beneficial to anyone with ‘unruly’ skin. I also think perhaps this would be a good product to try if you are self-conscious about having naturally red-toned cheeks/skin. I found it at Superdrug for £6.99, but if you are lucky enough to reside in a town with a Bodycare I picked mine up there for about half the price.
Does anyone else know of any good spot-clearing daily moisturisers? I'd be interested to here what you recommend..
