Skinetica Review

I have dehydrated skin that generally stays free from spots on most areas of my face but I frequently get spots on my chin. Spots in this area are said to be hormonal ones so there's not a lot I can do about them but they get super sore sometimes. They are often the kind that are really big under the surface and take days to appear. They tend to make half of my face feel tender and swollen, ouch!





When I was offered a bottle of Skinetica, an anti-blemish skincare treatment, I jumped at the chance as I need all of the help I can get!

Skinetica is a clear, toner like lotion that you apply to blemished skin with a cotton pad. You can reapply this every 12 hours.

The only other product I currently have in this sort of category is the Origins Super Spot Remover so I'm going to make quite a few comparisons to that.

I really like the fact that this is a clear liquid as it means you can apply it day or night without having to be seen with spot treatment on! Although the Origins Super Spot Remover is clear too, I felt like I couldn't wear that during the day as it would take ages to dry and it would really dry out the skin and leave it looking a bit crusty. Skinetica does not dry out the skin at all and it doesn't leave your face wet for ages either.

One thing I was surprised about with Skinetica is that it does not sting the skin. Normally with spot treatments (including the Origins one!), they really feel like they are burning the skin as the air hits the product but this is one super comfortable to wear and I didn't feel any burning or irritation.





On those horrible spots that lurk under the surface of the skin, this is a saviour as it really tones down the pain and redness. I really enjoyed using it on those spots for the relief it provided! I wouldn't say it's a miracle worker on spots that have already surfaced though, it doesn't massively speed up the process of getting rid of them but I'm glad I have this as I feel it helps keep the area clean and soothed. I have to say, I don't think any product gets rid of spots overnight though! 

This is definitely the best spot treatment I've used and I'm glad to have a nice big bottle of the stuff as it will last a long time. An 80ml bottle costs £9.99 from the Skinetica website and I think this is great value in comparison to the tiny Origins Super Spot Remover where you only get 10ml for £13. You don't feel like you have to ration this product in order to make it last for ages!

Have you tried Skinetica? What do you normally use on your spots/blemishes?

  6. Unfortunately this didn't work for me, and I seem to have the same sort of skin complaint as you talk about. There again, La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo did nothing for me either, and actually made my skin a lot worse, so it seems to be the pattern with me and hyped up blemish beating products. Gkad it's worked for you though :)
