Buh bye blemish

You’ve heard it before, but I’ll say it again – ‘try and never squeeze your zits!’

Make things better not worse by cleansing your face gently, then applying a dab of anti-blemish gel to soothe and calm any redness.

Origins Super Spot Remover™ Blemish Treatment Gel is a little pricey but worth every penny.

Battle breakouts fast! Just a dab of blemish-busting Salicylic Acid instantly helps speed healing, while anti-spot technology helps visibly correct lingering discolouration. Skin-calming Red Algae helps visibly relieve redness and, to help skin stay spotless, super exfoliators eliminate excess oils and pore-clogging debris.
