Most Helpful Positive

Good at reducing existing pimples

K

I love how efficiently this reducing the appearance of my hormonal pimples.

Most Helpful Criticism

Not for me

Siobhan

I had heard good things about this, and thought that it would work quite well. Unfortunately, it did absolutely nothing. I tried it on small and big pimples several times and sadly there was no effect. I prefer Botani Acne Rescue cream.
  1. Good at reducing existing pimples

    K

    I love how efficiently this reducing the appearance of my hormonal pimples.
  2. Love it!

    Jo

    I love this product. A little amount goes a long way and is really effective at minimising pimples. It also smells nice and the little tube lasts a long time.
  3. good!

    jevenee

    Recommend to purchase. this product is really effective to acne. use it overnight and feel better in the morning.
  4. Great for small spots but not highly potent

    T

    This is great if you see a blemish coming up and works well when used in the early stages. But after its is not as effective.
  5. Holy grail!

    Emma

    verified purchaser
    Before I tried this I had been trying to stretch out a similar product from Kiehls that was bought in the US and not available in Australia. I tried this on a whim and it's even better! Smells great and really helps reduce the appearance of pimples.
  6. Good for on the go

    Katie

    This treatment is great because it's transparent, so if I feel a zit coming up, I apply some of this in the morning and it helps stop the growth.
  7. Favourite pimple cream!

    Steph

    I absolutely adore this spot treatment. I've been using it for two years now. As soon as I see a small red, pimple bump forming, I pop some gel on it before bed, and it is gone the next morning. Definitely worth the money, the tube lasts forever.
  8. Good anti blemish product

    Erica

    This is a good spot treatment. It’s not the fastest acting treatment but can be used both day and night.

    I like it and will definitely finish it but I’m not sure I will repurchase this.
  9. The best pimple spots for now

    Thunder

    I bought this one because I have seen the review on the internet. I didn't believe it going to help my skin too much because the texture is so oily and like we know oil is not good for pimple but it makes my pimple disperse in one week. I don't know how but I will buy it again if it runs out.
  10. LIFE CHANGING!

    Nour

    WHERE HAS THIS BEEN BEFORE??? This is so underrated I'd never heard of this! Finally something gentle yet effective for my blemishes, I swear by this now it's removed my blemishes in half

  12. Gentle & non-irritating

    Jojo

    This product is very gentle and it doesn't make my skin dry at all. However, it really takes a long time to cure my acnes using this product.
  13. Okay

    Leah23

    I don’t find this particularly effective - I think treatments of this kind are best with a lot of eucalyptus and tea tree ingredients like the ones from Thursday Plantation and Skin Doctors.

    I haven’t found that it reduces the size, anger level of longevity of any pimples I’ve applied it to.
  14. Effective spot treatment

    Brianna

    I love this spot treatment as it doesn't burn your face off. I can feel it working as soon as I put it on a pimple - a slight tingle feeling. Not irritating at all and lasts a long time. The gel texture is great too as it doesn't run off your face.
  15. Insane

    Sharni

    I put this in a soon and I see or feel a blemish coming on. It’s effective and doesn’t dry my skin out
  16. A Skincare Staple

    Gilliank

    I always have a tube of this to hand. It isn't a miracle worker, but when I have a spot brewing and I pop this one I can feel the salicylic acid get right down to clean it out.
  17. good product

    Chris

    I bought this product twice. I just use it a little. If there is a promotion, I will buy it.
  18. didn't work for me

    Lydia

    I only have a few blemishes but this didn't do anything for me

  19. good

    Chris

    This product is very useful. when I put it into my skin, I feel a little cold and sour.
  20. didn't work

    Viv

    This didn't really work for me. I tried it on a stubborn spot and it didn't really speed up or slow down the blemish.

  21. Good

    Yun

    This product is quite gentle. It helps to dry out my acne. Love it.
  22. Non irritating and gentle, must be used at the first signs of a blemish

    caitlin

    I do think that this gel takes some of the sting out of blemishes, and is very non-irritating. However, I have found that this must be used at the first sign of a blemish for it to take some of the edge off, but it only seems to work for some types of pimples. This doesn't seem to work on areas of my face that have acne because of hormonal breakouts, but does in other areas.

    One of t...

  23. Worth the try!

    Esther

    Good for acne-prone skin type. Didn't give any irritating reaction and made my pimple dries quickly
  24. very gentle

    Ariane

    Very gent;e on the skin, and wont dry out your skin like other harsh pimple treatments. This is fast acting, and soothes the redness and itchiness you get with pimples.
  25. Not for me

    Chantelle

    Didn't find this strong enough for my breakouts personally
  26. not effective

    Viv

    I put this on a few blemishes and it didn't work. Disappointed with this one
  27. didn't work

    Lydia

    I only have a few blemishes but this didn't do anything for me
  28. Minimises appearance of Pimples.

    Aiden

    Helps reduce the appearance of pimples when I have a break out. Especially lessens the swelling and soreness of blind pimples.
  29. Ineffective

    Kate

    This wasn't effective for me. I have both papule and cystic acne (mild) and it didn't help either kind.
  30. LIFESAVER

    Maddy

    Okay a little dramatic BUT I use this as soon as I get a blemish and it really helps with redness and to deflate. Very comfy and does not sting!
  31. Soothing

    Tarran

    Perfect for my skin and doesn't irritate.
    I use it and leave it overnight and it really helps any inflamed spots.
  32. Excellent and non irritating

    EK

    This is a gentle yet effective blemish control for those pesky spots that can pop up, generally only takes a couple of days for them to disappear if you apply this to the spot twice a day. Also is non irritating!
  33. Great

    Yoshie

    I didn't expect that much actually, but this gel is pretty soothing and reduces the red area around the acne, and it smells like honey!
  34. AESOP CONTROL

    Lily

    Purchased this a few weeks ago after some hormonal break outs and it works so quickly, doesn’t make my skin dry and seems to work on both painful under the skin and white head breakouts. Really loving this product!
  35. Best blemish control

    Taylor

    I use this as soon as I get a blemish and it really helps with redness and to deflate. Very comfy and does not sting!
  36. Lovely

    Peta

    This product smells amazing, only a small amount is needed, its entirely translucent with none of that annoying 'rolling' effect. It dries up spots a treat and reduced a beast of one in under two days.
  37. No effect

    Inder

    This product didn’t have any effect on my blemishes. Wasted my money. Will never buy it again.
  38. Good

    Mikaela

    I can't say this is the best product for the price point but it has a beautiful non-offensive smell, isn't oily or gluggy and has been somewhat effective on my combination skin :)
  39. Not quite effective enough

    Jessica

    I didn't love this, didn't find it to be that effective on any blemishes I had. However it is a nice texture for wearing underneath makeup, clear and dries down nicely.
  40. Didn't work

    Amanda

    Was hoping to love this product but it didn't really help to control my blemishes. Having said that it didn't make them worse either
  41. I love this product!

    Claudia

    I love this product as it works really well in clearing up blemishes fast! Whenever I notice a pimple coming up, I apply this overnight and by the morning it has dried out. I often pick my pimples if they hang around so this product stops me from doing that. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to clear up zits fast!
  42. Effective control for sensitive skin

    Lauren

    I had previously used tea tree oil on spots, but my skin was far too sensitive for it. This is a great formula which includes tea tree oil, but it is gentle enough on my skin. I love that it can be used under/over make up, so i can apply it as many times as i want day or night
  43. Non Drying and mild

    Stugs

    If you want something that doesn't dry or rip your skin off then I would recommend this product. I have sensitive skin so this product was gentle enough to use on blemishes. The gel is light and not sticky, and has a lovely fragrance.
  44. LOVELY STUFF

    Zhaowei

    This product smells amazing, only a small amount is needed, its entirely translucent with none of that annoying 'rolling' effect. It dries up spots a treat and reduced a beast of one in under two days.
  45. Somewhat Effective

    Shelia

    I was excited to try this as it contains salicylic acid which works great for me, however this gel did not live up to expectations. It does work well on blemishes that have come to a head however not so much for deep cystic ones. I also find that the tube will release product even though I am not squeezing it.
  46. Witchcraft

    Liz

    Absolutely bomb for single pimples - clears them up overnight like magic. Can't speak for larger scale hormonal break outs though. This is definitely a day-before-the-party pimple solution. ALTHOUGH for those on a budget - pure tea tree oil will provide similar results (but can be more drying and severe.)
  47. Work well

    He

    Not quite sure how it works, but definitely works well in my face. Planning to reorder it
  48. Good for small breakouts, not hormonal acne

    Denise

    This product is good but you shouldn't expect it to make pimples magically disappear. The pros are the convenient tube, the natural ingredients and the smell. But the cons are that it can make you feel a little itchy and won't work overnight. So, it's good for helping normal breakouts but it can't be a stand alone solution for acne.
  49. Little to no effect

    sarah

    I have combination skin and struggle with the odd pimple here and there. I purchased this product in hope of controlling breakouts, however I found that it just left the skin feeling more irritated than before.
  50. Meh

    Kirsty

    I had high hopes for this product, as it seems to have a decent list of ingredients including niacinamide, salicylic acid, tea tree etc., but I just found it aggravating and did nothing for inflamed acne etc. I suspect it is all the essential oil type ingredients in this, which have no business in an anti-blemish product!
  51. Not usually disappointed by Aesop

    Brooke

    I don't know why - because the ingredients list looks so great - but this product just did nothing for my spots. I had so much faith and kept trying but was so disappointed. It does smell lovely, dries clear. But I also found the tube has this habit of overflowing really easily - don't know if I just have a faulty tube. Passed on to a friend in the hopes it works better for them!
  52. beautiful

    Lynda

    this gel is lovely. That's weird I know, its a spot treatment. I love it because if you get to the nasty early enough (ie at the first sign of redness) it will fend off the zit 90% of the time. Hormonal acne is a little trickier and while it definitely helps get rid of it its not overnight. I do tackle hormonal acne with liquid gold and this and this combo seems to at least bring the acne to a...

  53. Works a treat to dry out small breakouts

    Missy

    Let me get this out right now...this is not something to be used on hard core acne. This is a great little treatment for small blemishes, especially white heads that might pop up the night before a big event.
    This super awesome smelling gel dries those babies up, and over a few days will actually help get rid of them. It'll also make it just that bit easier to pop some concealer over them. <...

    I've tried million of products on my skin- camphor, toothpaste, benzol peroxide, lavender oil, teatree oil, honey, carrot juice, you name it, and nothing makes it disappear- even over the ocurse of a week.
    This product, while boasting popular ingrediants that reduce irritation etc, does not help my pimple clear up, only creates more clusters around the one I'm trying to get rid of. It smells...
