Skin Product Review: T Zone Rapid Action Spot Zapping Gel.

Hey everyone, hope you've had a lovely Sunday so far. I have, it's been my first laziest Sunday that I've had in months! I used it to relax, watch a couple of films and chow down on some Chinese food! Heavenly! But, let's get into a review I have for you today. This is helpful for those who suffer with acne like me! Actually, it's still worth a read even if you're just interested in discovering different products. So, let's go!

This is the T-Zone Rapid Action Spot Zapping Gel. Not exactly the shortest or catchiest title for a product but I digress. With the warmer weather coming, it is worth looking and exploring different acne eliminating products in order to let your skin look its best. I suffer with spots on a daily basis. I am currently on prescribed tablets for my acne as I have tried multiple things and nothing seems to be working. But those tablets and a combination of this gel has had some results. So let's get into the review:

What's in it?
Alcohol Denat, Aqua, Glycerin, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Acrylates/C 10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Polysorbate 20, Amino Methyl Propanol, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Salicylic Acid, Parfum, Disodium EDTA, Menthol, Limonene, Linalool, Benzyl Salicylate, Hexyl Cinnamol, Alpha Methyl Ionone, Butylphenyl Methylpropionol, CI42090 

My Thoughts
Overall, I like this product alot. The packaging is cute and easy to use. It allows you to control the right amount of product to use and it's easy to travel with if you're going on holiday or doing a fair bit of travelling. I do advise only squeezing out small pea-sized amounts for each spot as it spreads really well and too much can make it take longer to dry and make the area a bit crusty!

The product is a gel with a blue-ish hue to it and it's fairly watery so just a small bit goes a long way. It does smell a bit actually which I'm not a fan of! Any spots that are near my nose makes the scent really go up my nose or any that are near the top of my cheeks, a.k.a close to my eyes, make my eyes water like crazy but this doesn't last long. But I'm not usually affected by these things or sensitive to such scents so I would keep that in mind if your skin/eyes/nose are more sensitive to these things than I am.

The results are not amazing, unfortunately. The product doesn't really "zap" any spots away completely and make you have clear skin within a day. But daily use does show some results. I noticed that my smaller spots went alot smaller and reduced the redness. The bigger spots were a little bit reduced and alot of the soreness and redness were reduced also. But it doesn't get rid of them, unfortunately so I would combine this product with any face wash you like and cleanse and tone. Just take care of your skin really and do it daily.

It was something different to try as I am always looking out for new things to try to help me get rid of my acne for once and for all. Anyone who suffers from acne or constant breakouts knows how much spots affect your confidence and how much it is annoying to spend money on numerous products in the hopes something will do the trick!!

Anyway, it was an okay product to use so it's worth trying out if you're on the look out for something new for your skin. Be aware of how much the scent will affect you if you are sensitive to those things! I got it at Home and Bargain (UK shop) for a couple of pounds so check out the links before if you want to buy it:

Buy it at:
Amazon - £1.99 (currently on sale!)
Ebay - £2.10 (excluding delivery)

Have you used this before? What did you think of it?
Thankyou for reading.
Laura.
