Well.... its a mouthful, but Vichy Normaderm Hyaluspot is a fab little product that no-one should be without. And its not just for women and teenagers. My Hubs is using this too.
You know when a spot starts... a little red mark, itchy and sore and irritating? This is perfect for those pesky buggers.
Vichy Normaderm Hyaluspot (RRP €10.00) is a fast acting targeted treatment for all spots. Salicylic acid & LHA help fight the appearance of spots while the hyaluronic acid creates a soothing invisible and protective film on the surface of the skin to prevent the skin drying out which can make the spot look worse than it is.
A swish silver applicator on the top of a 15ml plastic squishy tube helps to cool the area around the spot down which does help with the redness around spots. I am liking this little tube a lot.
The clear gel applies easily and dries like an invisible, breathable plaster which isolates the blemish, halting the spread of the bacteria thereby helping to stop the spot's development. I like that the gel is completely clear because it means that you can apply this fresh smelling gel at any time during the day, under or over makeup and it won't cake over or under foundation.
I tested it under my Garnier bb cream (for oil/combo skin) and under my Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation and it was completely invisible under my foundation. I reapplied during the day over my foundation and added a little powder to counteract any shine and it didn't dislodge my foundation or look weird.
I used this on a few spots and while it didn't disappear them completely, it certainly sped up the healing time, the spots didn't make a head and I didn't get get the flaky patches around the spots either.
You need to be careful when squeezing the tube as it can be very liquid, and you only need a very small amount, it spreads easily and a little goes a long way. So watch for that, and avoid using this around the eye area.
This handbag/schoolbag/briefcase/makeup bag friendly tube is on Vichy counters and shelves right now and is totally worth the €10 just for the re-assurance that if a spot does strike that you can treat it as soon as you feel it starting.
