For anyone suffering from cystic acne outbreaks, finding a product that not only actually helps banish spots quickly but also keeps them away for good can be ridiculously hard. The beauty industry isn’t exactly short of potions offering spot sufferers miraculous results - often at high prices and no guarantee that they’ll actually work.
It’s only when we start to see products being reviewed online by normal people with real-life problem skin that claim amazing results that we start to take note and here’s one you’ll want to know about.
Tarte’s Knockout Tingling Treatment, £35, is gaining some serious cult status online, with sufferers saying that this spot treatment is making a real difference to their skin.
The exfoliant penetrates into pores, helping break down blackheads and the bacteria that’s the cause of the spots in the first place. The cream contains 10% salicylic acid, one of the best pimple-busting ingredients out there, and the treatment claims to help resurface skin and balance its pH levels, leaving your face incredibly smooth and bright. It tingles on application, as it works deep into the epidermis, before you wash it away.
Users posted on Reddit to praise its results...
“I haven't had any issues with flaking or dryness and my skin looks really nice and glowy. I'm excited to keep using it.”
“ After about a week’s use, I’m in love!”
"I was very pleased with the benefits from even one application, and after a week of applying it every night, I can say that so far this is my new HG for acne and PIH/PIE. I've had a chronic area of inflammation under my chin, this truly knocked it out. Other healing pimples were healed so much more quickly than they normally would be. I've had zero new cystic acne so far."
