I want skin like Millie Macktintosh! Manuka Doctor Blemish Cream Review

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Hello!
You should all know by now how I have bad and good phases with my skin. Right now is a particularly bad skin phase which had me reaching for a quick fix blemish cream. As I haven’t had a bad phase in a while I realised that all my quick spot fixes were either run out (sob Origins Super Spot Remover) or I’d left in my flat (Dr.Nick Lowe’s Spot Gel) so I made a quick dash into town and suddenly remembered about a blemish cream from bee venom skincare company Manuka Doctor which was supposed to be pretty sublime. You all know my favourite Millie Mackintosh who’s skin I’d love to have, featured this on her blog and said that it helped whenever she had a blemish (though I struggle to believe that the flawless Millie ever gets a blemish.) However seeing it on her blog, here’s the link if you haven’t read it, was good enough for me, she’s one of those that could recommend wearing a bin bag and I’d be all on it like a car bonnet. Holland and Barrett is where you can get Manuka Doctor and luckily I grabbed the last blemish cream on the shelf, there were obviously a lot of other Millie Mac fans in town that week! They also had an offer on for 2 for £8.50 and when it’s priced alone at £5.99 it’s quite a good deal, I also picked up the Tea Tree Antiseptic gel from Manuka Doctor as it’s good for bites and irritations on your face/body and my boyfriend had a bite on his leg, so hey presto. Winner winner chicken dinner.



Now the past week my skin has had a wobbly, a temper tantrum that Suri Cruise would be proud of as it has thrown three of the biggest spots you can imagine all on my face at the same time. We had the growth on the side of my forehead, the boil on my cheek and the cyst on my chin. All I have to say is thank god my boyfriend was down south or he may have been repulsed by the sight of me and replaced my I pad engraving from ‘To  my real life Blair Waldorf’ to ‘you’re my real life Quasi Modo.’ This meant the Manuka doctor had its work cut out, and had a real testing! Here’s how it got on, this unfortunately isn’t a quick fix. It isn’t like Origins super spot remover that will make your spot/s look a lot smaller, calmer overnight, this is more of a gradual fixer. Over the past few days, everyday I’ve woke up and the spots have been smaller/calmer, but it’s happened over a few days. I’ve also taken to mixing the antiseptic gel with the blemish cream as its tea tree which is brilliant for spots. This has also helped keep the area clean and stopping the blemishes getting worse or spreading. Over all it’s a good little blemish cream that I will continue to use but I may have to repurchase Origins Super Spot remover for emergencies, at £5.99 this is a good cream to help keep blemishes at bay and help them gradually disappear which is what I want normally when my skin isn’t throwing a complete diva strop. I’ll keep going with it and see how I get on. After all if it’s good enough for Millie Mackintosh it’s good enough for me!

 So let me know what are your favourite quick fixes for spots? Let me know! I'm hoping that as I'm in America right now a little bit of skin is helping my skin out! I hope you're all having a great week :)
