Grease Lightning Spot Treatment

When your skin needs to shape up there’s no need to lose control. The (natural) power that antibacterial tea tree and witch hazel are supplying is purifying while antioxidant-rich grape juice helps to cleanse and soothe. If you’re hopelessly devoted to clear skin, apply with a finger as often as you like. So easy even a beauty school drop-out could do it.

img_0281Apart from being a great song from a great musical, Grease Lightning is also a gentle, yet effective spot treatment in the form of a gel that you just apply directly to the spot.

I cannot stress how much more effective I’ve found this over other brand’s treatments, and I’ve spent a lot of money on skincare! I really think that this is one of the products that really tells you that fresh, natural ingredients are the way forward.

And it’s so much cheaper than (most) commercial brands of spot treatments and cleansers!

Unlike other products available from high street brands such as Boots or even the enemy, Body Shop – Grease Lightning doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry or irritated like so many products designed to do the same can do. The Carrageenan Extract and Aloe Vera Gel really gently cleanse and purify the skin around the spot and give the inflamed area the nourishment it needs.

Meanwhile, Tea Tree and Witch Hazel get to work at fighting spots with their anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties, and Grape Juice and Lavender soothe and reduce the size of the pimples.

Once applied, the gel hardens somewhat into what looks like a layer of skin over the spot, acting as a barrier to prevent any more irritation and to close the microbial war zone. Because of this, I prefer to use Grease Lightning at bedtime or when I’m just at home pampering as opposed to the mornings before a cute day out.

Another great thing about this treatment is how long it can last, because a little bit does go a long way. You only need one pump and that’s enough for a few spots!


It works so quickly as well, after using before bed I usually wake up to a blemish that has reduced in size considerably, and after a second use they’re usually gone! I for sure won’t be using another brand of spot treatment for a while.
