This Model-Approved Pimple Treatment Is a Bestseller at Mecca
Recommending spot treatments is tricky in that what works for one may not work for another. Depending on how your skin responds to common active ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, you could find you favour one over the other. (Most acne-fighting formulas are based on one or the other.) This means that your bestie's foolproof zit-zapper could leave you underwhelmed, and visa versa. That said, there is something to be said for safety in numbers. So when we discovered a pimple treatment with a whopping 290 plus 5-star reviews on Mecca, we had to take a closer look.
The product in question is based on the aforementioned salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid with the impressive ability to exfoliate deep into the pores. It also contains calming calamine (yep, the pink stuff your mum dabbed all over your childhood chicken pox), to prevent irritation. It's beloved by beauty editors, celebrities and models alike (even Lara Worthington rates the stuff), but it's real women like reviewer GABY_ALFIERI (who calls is "a miracle in a bottle") that make a rock-solid case for its effectiveness. Dying to know what it is?
