The Inkey List Succinic Acid Blemish Treatment Review

For years I had acne prone skin and now I'm lucky that it has mostly cleared up and I only get hormonal breakouts. This is one of my main issues with my skin so I am always trying out new spot treatments to try out and I am always comparing it to my favourite and I had high hopes for this one. The Inkey List Spot Treatment ReviewI have been really enjoying trying out products from The Inkey List in the last couple of months and I was so excited by the release of the Succinic Acid Blemish Treatment. It retails for £6.99 for 15ml. This has obviously been designed for those with blemish prone skin but is suitable for all skin types. With many spot treatments, they will dry out the skin that will then trigger too much oil being produced, leading to even more spots but this treatment aims to help you break that cycle. 

It contains a blend of 0.4% hyaluronic acid, 2% succinic acid and 1% salicylic acid to provide you with a non-drying, easily-absorbed spot treatment that works to physically reduce the size of blemishes while also unclogging pores, exfoliating the skin and calming it all at the same time. This is to be used after cleansing the skin and can be used one to three times per day. It is recommended that you start off with once a day and I usually use this in my morning and evening skincare routines. 

I was expecting to be wowed by results and while it's a fine spot treatment, it isn't the game changer I thought it was going to be. I like my spot treatments to provide some overnight results but with this one it takes quite a few applications to notice any improvements and reductions in my breakouts. My breakouts are really painful so I like something that gets to work quickly and this isn't it for me. I prefer to use this on smaller spots and it works great for those. It doesn't leave any residue behind on the skin so it's fine to use in a morning skincare routine before applying makeup. And on a random note, the product is actually green which I didn't realise! But luckily it does blend anyway to be transparent. 

The Inkey List is a cruelty free brand.
