It’s been a while since my last article on this blog but I’m coming back with a great natural spot treatment review (and lots of other articles under way!).
Before I dive into this review, let me tell you one thing, you’re going to hear much more about A. Florence skincare from me as I’ve been impressed with most of the products I’ve tried from this brand so far.
The blemish SOS clarifying face oil is so much more than your traditional harsh spot treatment. It combines two of my favorite ingredients to treat blemishes, 2% salicylic acid and black cumin oil. So, in this way already, it saves me the use of two different products.
Salicylic acid is both exfoliating and anti-inflammatory. Its specialty resides in its ability to get into the pores to unclog them. Black cumin oil, on the other hand, is an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory oil that accelerates the healing process of the skin.
So the deep exfoliation is balanced out by soothing and healing oils along with the anti-inflammatory herbal complex (ginkgo biloba, plantain, liquorice root, dandelion leaf, marshmallow root, lemon balm and marigold) that is used throughout the A.Florence skincare range.
To this well-balanced formula, the brand has added 1% of alpha-lipoic acid which has been proven to help diminish acne scarring. So you get an all-rounder effective but gentle blemish treatment that clarifies and soothes the skin whilst reducing spot marks.
Blemish SOS is a light watery oil that has an herbal scent (mainly from the black cumin seed oil). You can use it all over the face but I prefer to spot treat with it and massage the spotty area thoroughly. So this little travel size bottle is going to last me a long time and I’m glad that they offer this option.
I find that it makes my blemishes go away faster without drying my skin. It also reduces the redness of the spots and refines the skin texture. I’m really glad I discovered this product!
