I'm so disappointed with the Origins Super Spot Remover and had such high hopes after reading countless amazing reviews. My experience with it is probably one of the worst reactions I've ever had with a blemish product...In fact, it is the worst reaction I've ever had to any product! I'm so upset because my skin is sooo bad, I had so many lovely new products to show you guys, but there is no way I could take a picture of my face with the way my chin looks after using this! :(
This retails at £14 and you only get 10ml, so it is quite pricey. I was in John Lewis last week with my Fiancee and he offered to buy me it as I had been moaning about two little spots for about a week that I had on my chin and they just wouldn't go away, so I thought this would get rid of them! I was horribly wrong!
I don't get very many spots and rarely get them anywhere other than my chin and I don't think I've ever had more than two or three at any one time. So, when I got back from John Lewis I took my makeup off straight away and applied the Super Spot Remover to both blemishes (they were on either side of my chin) and I applied it with a cotton bud using a different end for each spot so as not to spread any germs. Then I got one last cotton bud and swept some of the gel on the middle of my chin inbetween the two blemishes, just to prevent any appearing there as I know that is my problem area.
The next morning, apart from the addition of another spot on my chin it looked no different, so I put some more on that evening, the exact same application method as the night before, then I woke up the next day and I could not believe what greeted me in the mirror. I had gone from two tiny spots to NINE in two days. I have never, ever had skin like this in my whole life and they were the horrible big, nasty red kind, not little pimples. I was horrified. I stopped using it obviously and have been applying Sudacrem, Savlon and washing my face with Soap and Glory's Face Soap for three days now to no avail.
My skin looks awful, I can't apply any makeup to it and it just seems to be getting worse. I have no idea what to do! So, please guys recommend me some good spot fighting treatments! I have some friends/family coming over this weekend and I cannot possibly enjoy myself with my face looking the way it does.
I have to add that I hate to give a product a bad review and I am fully aware I have completely slated this product but I am getting so annoyed by what it has done to my face and the fact that it hasn't improved, only got worse, in the past three days. Also, my skin is very sensitive, and I have yet to find a spot product that works for me, so I am sure my bad reaction is just down to my sensitive skin :(
Please recommend any methods/products I can try to help me get rid of these spots by Friday!!
Thanks for reading!
