Clean and Clear Advantage Spot Treatment Gel Review

Being a student might seem like one big skive with the long holidays, late starts and early finishes but when it comes down to the hard work it can be quite stressful. I'm in my 4th year at uni and the end is finally in sight. This years workload has proved to be stressful for me and my skin.

My skin overall isn't too bad but for a few weeks around essay deadlines, the start of my last placement and my dreaded crit reviews my skin has been breaking out.
I've tried a few different things including the Soap and Glory Dr Spot but in the long run it wasn't fixing my problem and starting drying my skin out just a bit too much.

This on the other hand seems to be working better and quicker without removing all traces of hydration from my skin.

The claims are quite clear on the front of the tube and I totally agree that this works immediately and really does help reduce the spot.
I'm not saying you can dab a bit of this on and you'll have clear smooth skin. Rather as soon as you put it on it's actually doing something to fix your dreaded problem.
I tend to use this more at night time to give it longer to work but on the days when I'm not going anywhere and don't need to put on any makeup it's worked at turning a mountain into a molehill haha.
As for keeping the spots away? I've not tried putting this on when there isn't a spot to tackle but it would be great if this is true.

It says the gel is suitable under and over makeup, which I won't disagree with, but you need to make sure you've got enough time to let the gel settle and dry before applying makeup or you'll end up with a dodgy patch attracting attention to exactly what you want covered up. 

The only thing to be cautious of perhaps is the amount that comes flying. The nozzle-ey thing is only small but if you're not careful you'll end up with enough to cover your whole face.

Are you a fan of the Clean and Clear range?
Do you have any quick spot clearing recommendations? 


  1. I've tried this before but I wasn't too impressed, it didn't really seem to help my breakout! x

    1. Oh no really? What ones have worked for you? x
