Lush Grease Lightning

I've heard a ton of rave reviews on Lush's Grease Lightning* ($13.95/45g), so I was really excited to get to try it out! Grease Lightning is a spot treatment, and I trust Lush with their skin care products. One of the main ingredients is tea tree oil, which is well known to help heal acne.


Lush's Grease Lightning is a clear gel that you apply daily to any blemishes that you have. I normally find spot treatments fairly gimmicky, but I really do think that this one works! My skin is fairly normal, it doesn't get oily and it isn't dry, but I do get the occasional blemish. Also, I seem to always have a scar after a blemish has cleared up, which obviously isn't ideal. I've found that applying Lush's Grease Lightning will slightly speed up the healing process. However, more impressively, this spot treatment seems to heal the blemish safely and I'm not left with any acne scarring! 


This gel can make your face feeling slightly tight and dry right after it's applied, so I always follow up with a moisturizer. I've really been impressed with this product, and I think that it will work even on sensitive skin types. I don't think that Grease Lightning will help clear up severe cystic acne, but it does work on the occasional blemish and hormonal breakouts. 

Have you tried Lush's Grease Lightening? What is your favourite spot treatment?
