Skin Care: Origins Super Spot Remover Blemish Treatment Gel

5 June 2012

I'd read lots of really good reviews of Origins products but never actually tried any of their range until a couple of weeks ago. I've been using a combination of Liz Earle and Avene on my skin and it has really dramatically improved - much more balanced, and my cheeks and forehead are perfectly clear - however I've still had those pesky hormonal breakouts on my chin.

I ordered this treatment when Debenhams had their 10% off beauty offer a couple of weeks ago. When it arrived I was pretty shocked, its a tiny little bottle (shorter than my thumb). However, after using this morning and night most days for a couple of weeks I've barely even dented the bottle because you only need a tiny amount. I just squirt a little on to my fingertip and apply, but others have recommended using a Q-tip as its more hygenic.

I was really impressed with how effective this treatment is - spots didn't vanish over night, but they definitely got smaller and less red. I applied this when I could feel a spot coming and it never actually appeared, which was brilliant! I'll definitely be using this as an occasional treatment and I'd recommend it if you rarely get spots, but I'm just too lazy to apply this all the time, which at the minute I'd need to do as I'm acne prone. I am however really interested in trying more products by origins. I've got my eye on their charcoal mask, I'm hoping that (once I save up and purchase it) using it once or twice a week will mean I need to use this treatment even less! I also really want to give one of their eye treatments a go as I've heard really good things about them.

Have you tried any Origins products? What did you think?


  1. I really need to try this!

  2. Thank you for your comment on my blog, great post - I get hormonal breakouts on my chin twice a month, never good, so may try this :) would love for you to do an outfit of the day post?

  3. Glad to hear this product works for you! I swear by Origins products :) Their Modern Friction Scrub is holy grail for me- even converted my bf to using it! He also uses the Charcoal Scrub & says it helps keep his skin clear.
