Review: Lush’s ‘Grease Lightning’

January 12, 2013

LUSH Grease Lightning

Hello my lovelies. As it’s been the festive season, I’ve pigged out on rubbish food and ate copious amounts of chocolates out my selection boxes and I imagine I’m not the only one! So even though I don’t get a mass amount of spots and blemishes, I did have quite a fair amount from my sugar and sweetie splurge so a new solution was definitely needed!

I’ve seen a couple of bloggers rave about this so I thought I’d see what the whole excitement was about and I’m happy to say I’m not disappointed, it’s definitely like no spot treatment I’ve ever used! After falling into the habit of ‘I want clearer skin, I’ll just use Clearasil’, I’m so happy I’ve found something new and different. If you have problematic skin or just get the odd big spot like I do, this is ideal and it’s suitable for all skin types. It’s a product from the amazing company ‘Lush’ and is described as a treatment that, ‘Strikes the spot with lightning precision’ and it’s designed ‘to zap zits before they show themselves’. It’s made with fresh ingredients such as Tea Tree, Grape Juice, Lavender Oil and Witch Hazel to name just a few, and it’s definitely been working wonders on my, let’s say, ‘problem areas’.

All that I’ve been doing is pumping out the gel formula onto my (clean) fingers and dabbing it where it needs to go. I’ve been doing this mostly before I go to sleep but I’ve also done it when I’ve been in the house with no make-up on just to try say ‘adios’ to them a little quicker. It’s reduced the spots that have AND haven’t surfaced the skin yet in not just size but colouration too. The first morning after I used this I immediately noticed less red areas! It’s definitely a fast acting treatment, getting to work pretty much straight away. The only little problem that I’ve found with this product so far is that it dries out the area you apply it to, even though the website states that it won’t. It may just be my skin! However, after I wash my face in the morning my skin completely goes back to normal, so this little problem doesn’t really affect me too much to the point of not repurchasing it. It retails at £5.95 which is a tad pricey for the 45g you get, but I’ll only use it when I have breakouts so I feel it will last me a long time! Overall Rating – 8.5/10.

Have you tried this product? What are your thoughts? Or have you tried an even better spot treatment? Let me know! Thanks for reading!
