This little gem has come in handy so many times I thought it deserved a mention. I can't remember for the life of me where I got this from. I may have nicked it from my Mum at some point, I genuinely can't remember how this came to be in my possession. What I do know is that whenI have a dodgy pimple erupt on my face, a teeny drop of this has quickly calmed it down and dispelled it within 24 hours.
A quick Google has informed me that Nelsons is in fact the UK's largest manufacturer of natural healthcare products. Its Blemish Gel contains increased strength tea tea, arnica, St John's Wort and calendula.
Blemish Gel ingredients: aqua, alcohol, tea tree oil, arnica montana extract, calendula extract, hypericum extract, triethanolamine, carbomer, limonene (tea tree oil source), linalool (tea tree oil source).
It looks and smells like any ordinary tea tea gel, but I've had such great results from it, I thought I'd do a quick post in case this can help anybody else who suffers from blemishes or spots. All I do is apply it to the blemish(es) in question on a clean face before going to bed and again under my make up in the morning. The tea tree scent is quite strong but you only really notice it as you're applying it. Once you've washed your fingers, it's forgotten.
The tube, although quite small, last months (literally) too. I've been using this sporadically since April or so and the tube look brand new.
Nelsons products are free from: SLS, SLES, PEGs, parabens, lanolin, silicones, artificial colourings & fragrances.
Nelsons can be found in Boots and also have a number of other stockists. You can check that list out and the rest of the range on their website
