Skincare Saturdays || Soap & Glory Dr Spot || Review

Hellooo lovelies,

In my haul I did a few weeks ago I picked up Soap and Glory's Dr Spot clearing gel as my free thing on the 3 for 2 offer. I was suffering from several pesky spots and my skin was just not having a good time so since it was free and I didn't really need/want anything else I thought why not give it a whirl!

 The consistency of this product is a clear gel and you apply it to the individual spots on your face. The first thing I noticed about this was it tingles when you put it on which is good because it feels like it's doing something. Sadly- I don't think it does do anything - not for my skin anyway. I don't suffer from acne or particularly bad spots so I would have thought it should have been able to clear it up but it didn't. I actually seemed to be getting more spots rather than it taking them away but I think that's more of a hormonal thing!

 My biggest bug bare with this though was the packaging - it's a foil tube which bends so easily so it's hopeless for carrying around with you. So if you stay at anyone's house (this is to be used on the spot both morning and night) then it's not great for you as it will get all squished. Then when you open it waaaay too much excess product comes oozing out everywhere which a) is very wasteful and b) is very messy. As you can see there's a lot of product gone from this already and I've only had it two weeks and I definitely do not have that many spots!!

I'm really sad as I badly wanted this product to be good but it really wasn't. I love Soap & Glory as a brand but this just didn't do it for me and for £8 I would expect much better results. Have you tried this product? What spot treatments do you recommend? Also do let me know if you like this Skincare Saturday series so I know whether to continue it or not!

Shop this post:-

  1. I absolutely hate the new soap and glory packaging! I don't get why they've made it so bland and boring! I tried the blackhead clearing mask from them and it irritated my skin like crazy, I think I'm going to stay away from their treatments even though I do love their cleansers and moisturisers :) x

    1. It's not very practical is it! I'll make sure and avoid trying that out then! I love their moisturisers too :-) xx

  2. Oh that's disappointing! I was thinking of picking this up but after reading this I don't think I will be.

    1. I was disappointed too, I so wanted to find something that worked! xx
