Witch Blemish Stick review

WITCH BLEMISH STICK £2.89 link
"The ultimate in blemish control, Witch Blemish Stick helps break down excess oils and fights the bacteria that cause spots. Simply dab on as often as required, preferably as soon as blemishes start to appear. Fights the bacteria that causes spots. Gets to work instantly.  Dab on as often as required when blemishes first appear. Great for all skin types but especially oily / combination skin. As with all skincare products use with caution on sensitive skin."
I have been getting quite a lot of breakouts under my chin and on my neck.  I don't know what caused them, because my skin is usually very clear. I always use Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Concentrate, but I decided to try something cheaper this time, to see if it works. 
I got the Witch Blemish Stick from ASDA for £1.50 on sale so it is an absolute bargain! The packaging is sturdy and the cap is very secure. The scent is quite strong, but it doesn't linger in the skin for too long. 
I apply it a couple of times a day to affected areas if I don't wear makeup, or twice a day if I wear foundation. 
I always use a small amount, because it tends to leave a sticky residue if I use too much of it. 
It claims to work immediately and to be honest, it really does. It reduces redness and if I have "fresh" breakouts, my skin stings a bit. It is a good sign to me. 
I definitely noticed an improvement since I started using it about three weeks ago. 
It helps to heal breakouts and prevents them as well. It must be the magic of witch hazel :) 
I also use it on my T-zone when it is getting out of control and it helps to reduce sebum production on my skin. 
You can't go wrong with it in my opinion and it is worth trying. 
If you have sensitive skin, I would recommend doing a patch test first, but you should be ok :)

Have you tried this product?

    1. It is worth trying. It is very cheap, so if it doesn't work for you, you won't feel gutted about spending a fortune :)

  2. I tried this a long time ago. In the first week it seemed to improve my spots but after continued use they seemed to get a whole lot worse. I think it's the alcohol Denat in their though. I seem to be sensitive to that ingredient & it irritates my skin. Loads of different 'spot treatments' I have used or gone to buy contain it too so can't use any of them :(

    1. Have you tried the Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Concentrate? I know that it isn't a natural product, but I seriously can't live without it. It works wonders for me. I just ordered more from Escentual http://www.escentual.com/vichy/normaderm02/ and you get a free Vichy gift as well with generous samples of the Normaderm range. I think that Vichy is the only brand I still use after going all natural and organic. When I get problems with spots, I just go back to Vichy Normaderm.

  4. It sounds really great. I've been under loads of stress at the moment so it's really showing on my t-zone. I would love to try this!

  5. I used to use this when I was about 13 ish and my mum was forever stealing it from me as it was so good! I'm currently using another of their products - it's a tube of gel/liquid that you brush on, I really like it. Xo

  6. Oh, hope I can get this in Australia. It sounds like something I'd love to try, maybe swap it for my Lush Spot Treatment which contains witch hazel as you pay for a small amount. I'm gonna be looking out for this!

  7. I've tried this before and had mixed feelings about it, the smell/sting was definitely bearable and a sign of it working however the packaging was just slightly iffy for me, especially as I came to finish it I found it increasingly difficult to use. Saying this I'm still looking for a spot treatment that works as well so blemish-wise it's fab! xxx

  13. This product takes me back... it was one of the first skincare products I ever used when I was a teenager, which was strange considering I never really had any 'blemishes' at that age!

    It would be interesting to try it again now though, might have to have a look next time I'm at Asda, can't resist the bargain price of £1.50!

  14. I'm using out of their products at the minute - the 'blemish gel' I think it's called... It doesn't do wonders but it's seemingly pretty good. I'm just wondering with this stick - how clean is it? Does it hold the bacteria from the spots? x

  15. Wow this sounds fab and an AMAZING price!
