Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Spot Wand


When I was in my teens I had really problematic skin. My aunt used to work at as a beautician and she informed me of some facials that I could try out that may help with my skin. One of those facials included tea tree and witch hazel. I had them on a reasonably regular basis and I definitely saw some results. However it does get too expensive to do all the time.

Luckily now I am older I don't have too much of a problem. I get the odd break out here and there but I find that I can manage them. However recently my skin has been going through turmoil. I don't know why or how but I have one spot on my chin that just refuses to go away. That's why I went and picked up this product in my local boots.

I absolutely love using it. The smell of the Tea Tree and the Witch Hazel is amazing. It takes me back to the day where I received the facials. With this product, you have one gel for the day (clear) and one for the night (green). There is a sponge applicator and all your required to do is apply the gel directly to the spot and then let it dry. This helps to reduce redness and ultimately make the spot disappear faster.

What's weird is that I find the green gel works a lot better than the clear. I don't know if this has something to do with the way my skin works whilst I am a sleep, or whether it is something in the product. I've always been tempted to just use the green full time but I thought I would give the clear gel a fair try.

Overall, it does help with redness and the spot size is reduced but it doesn't get rid of it completely. I find that my Simple Roll On is a lot more effective at getting the job done. Therefore I don't feel that I would purchase this again. I find it easier to skip the middleman and go straight for the Zinc roll on to dry it out completely.

This is product is about half the price of the Simple Roll On but I think you get what you pay for.

Have you given this product a go? How did you get on with it? Let me know in the comments below.
