Simple Spot Zapper



( Don't forget to check out my blog sale here =] )


After reading about this on a fellow beauty blogger's blog, I decided to go straight ahead and buy as I was suffering with spots at the time. She explained that it worked really well for her and I figured that it might be worth a try to help clear up my skin again.

One of the main reasons for me actually deciding that this may work for me was the fact that it contained zinc. Doctors will often give you a zinc roll on if you complain about spots and I figured that this must be a similar idea.

I also like the fact that it is made by Simple so it is free from harsh chemicals and preservatives. I have been using their morning radience facial wipes for a few years now and it has done wonders to start correcting my hyperpigmentation, so I feel that this is a brand I can trust.

It claims that it will reduce spots within 4 hours of application which is a lot similar to my previous Clean and Clear spot treatment, so it wasn't going to be more effective with the timing. However I can now say for certain that this roll on is better at drying up my spots quicker than the Clean and Clear.
However the Clean and Clear tends to get rid of the spot completely much faster than this simple version.

They both have their own pro's and cons. The roll on balls tends to be quite cold and releases a liquid that dries very quickly. Whereas the Clean and Clear is a gel that takes slightly longer to dry before you can apply your makeup. 

Overall if you are looking for a quick fix I would go with the Simple because once your spot has dried up you can always use makeup to hide the mark until it's healed. Clean and Clear will heal it completely but it will take slightly longer to do so and you will have to cope with covering your spot until then.

Have you tried any effective spot healers? Let me know your thoughts below.

  1. that's interesting -- i didn't know that zinc reduced acne! i wonder if you take zinc vitamins, you won't have as many problems with acne??
    anyway, i bought this stuff for my little sister (she has "teenager" skin, as i like to call it) and she didn't really like this stuff. bummer :( i let her use some of my tea tree oil though, and she really likes using that!

    1. I can imagine why it might not work on teenage skin as perhaps people have more acne at that age whereas im 21 so only get a few minor ones here and there thank goodness :)
      Don't know about the zinc tablets but thats actually an interesting idea..

  2. I've just started taking Zinc + Vitamin C supplements after reading that zinc is good for acne/spots. Coincidentally I've got a blog post about it sat in draft waiting to be finished!! Bought a 3 month supply so going to see if there's any improvement after that x

  4. Might give this a try! I'm currently using on at the moment (can't remember which one) but it isn't working very well, so hopefully Simple may be the one for me instead! xo
