You apply the product almost like a toner. First of all you just wash your face with your normal cleanser. Then you soak a cotton pad with Skinetica and apply it to any affected areas. It will even work on blackheads so sweep it over your nose & chin too. The most important part of application is to make sure it has air dried properly but that only takes a couple of seconds. Then you can apply any serum, moisturiser, primer & makeup on top. Make sure you repeat the process at night because Skinetica works best with two applications per day.
I wasn't too sure if it would do anything at all considering it seems more like a toner rather than a traditional spot treatment but it actually did get rid of any active breakouts I had within a few of days. Any pain & redness in them had disappeared after the first day and the affected area had completely cleared after the third. I'm really impressed by how quickly it works & how easy it is to integrate into your normal skincare/makeup routine. The only problem I had with it was that it made my skin feel quite dry & tight but that soon went away with a good dose of moisturiser. Theres only 4 ingredients in it so that might be due to the alcohol & fragrance it contains. It does smell really nice but I prefer to use unperfumed products on my face. Its nothing like the dryness you get from most anti-blemish products, especially ones containing harsh chemicals like benzoyl peroxide. Other than that initial dryness, Skinetica is actually really kind to skin.
I have to admit I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to skincare. After years of trying drugstore products by the likes of Clearasil, Clean & Clear, Witch & Neutrogena with little success, I generally believe that the more you pay for skincare the more it'll do for your skin. But every now and then there comes a real gem that doesn't cost the earth. One bottle of Skinetica retails at just 9.99 including UK postage. You can even request a free sample bottle from the Skinetica website so theres no excuse not to try out this brilliant blemish buster.
