Not great…

I have suffered with acne for years, and having stopped using benzoyl peroxide as it made my skin far too dry, I wanted to try an alternative that didn’t contain harsh ingredients. I went into the lush shop and got a sample of grease lightning in a tiny tub which the lady assured me would last for a while - it did! However, this product was not for me. The smell is nice - very fresh and refreshing, the texture is a bit gloopy but also runny which is strange. I apples it directly to cleansed skin on my spots and left it on overnight, hoping I’d wake up and the spots would’ve slightly improved. All this product did for me was leave the area really, really dry and crusty, which made makeup look terrible. I would go as far to say that over the couple of weeks I used it it made my skin worse and look even redder. I would not recommend this product at all.

Only used it once

I have only used it once so far- got a sample in store but now i am definately going back to order one! I have tried tons of things for my spots and this literally worked in a few minutes! I love it! How could i have wasted all that time and money till now...?

This stuff is amazing!

I’ve been struggling with bacterial acne for three years and have tried all sorts of skincare and spent so much money trying to reduce my spots without success. I’ve been using this for two weeks and my skin is the best it’s been in years and it’s reduced my spots to almost none. I’m amazed!

Amazing product!!!!!

After going in to the Truro brach in Cornwall feeling deflated and not knowing where to turn for help with my acne prone oily skin, the amazing ladies recommended this along with a cleanser and exfoliating product, wow wow wow. This stuff is amazing, worth every penny and the customer service I received was nothing short of exemplary. Never had a bad experience in this store and every single member of staff I've spoken with have been smiley, kind, helpful, knowlegable and caring!

Vanished overnight

I grabbed this product recently and let me tell you, I have no regrets! I suffer with PCOS and often get cystic acne, this cleared one of my biggest stress areas overnight. I love the texture. You can feel how fresh the ingredients are when you put it on the skin. It feels like I picked homegrown aloe from my backyard. I LOVE it. A little goes a long way!
