I kept thinking I already did a review on this product since I’ve been using it for a while now. I’m on my second or third bottle now. That probably shows how much I enjoy using this product, right?
The bottle comes with 10mL for $17.50 CAD. It’s not a lot of product, but most acne spot treatments come in smaller amounts since it’s not meant for full face application. The bottle is very soft so it’s definitely squeezable and makes it easier to get the amount that you want. It also makes it easy to carry around especially if you’re travelling. But as with most Origins products, the packaging itself is very simple and has a no-nonsense feel which I’m guessing is to play into its natural product look.
A reason why I like this product is because it doesn’t leave a white cast on my face. You know if you accidentally had toothpaste on your face and you’re left with this white stuff on your face after it has dried? That’s how some spot treatments are for acne, rendering it useless for daily wear. The thing about Origins’ Spot Remover is that it’s fine under makeup – as long as you don’t over apply it, of course.
Another plus for this product is that it doesn’t dry me out. Many acne treatment products are guilty of making your skin dry up so much that you end up with flakey skin. This gel does a good job of reducing the size of the pimple without drying out all the skin around it. Again, this makes a great candidate for daily wear especially if you usually wear makeup.
Don’t expect this product to work miracles. It’s not going to make everything disappear as if it never existed in the first place. However, it definitely helps reduce the size almost immediately. It helps calm the skin and reduces redness, just like it claims. I don’t really know if I agree with the fact that it helps reduce pigmentation afterwards though.
I recommend this to all skin types. If you’re on the market for a spot treatment, definitely give this product a try! It’s quite gentle on my skin compared to all the other harsh products that I’ve tried in the past. It has a small cooling effect on application which helps with calming and reducing redness of skin due to acne. It can also be worn under makeup without any problems.
