My Thoughts: Anatomicals Day and Night Spot Stick

Anatomicals Day and Night Spot Stick

Similarly to my review on the Anatomicals lip balm (link here), this is a really disappointing product. It’s supposed to clear up your spots but all it did was break me out which I wasn’t expecting. Once again the packaging is really cute and it didn’t cost much but that doesn’t stop it from being a crap product. Both the ‘day’ and ‘night’ formulas smell really strongly of tea tree and alcohol and my skin really doesn’t like the alcohol in this. It doesn’t sting but I personally think that the dofe applicator is unhygienic so I’d put this on a cotton bud when using it. I also found the application of the product irregular so sometimes a massive gloopy bit would come out and sometimes a pathetic amount would, or maybe I just need to work on my dofe application skills? I don’t see an obvious difference between the day and night solutions either, apart from the night one seeming thicker and smelling stronger and of course being white in colour as neither of them helped my spots. Redness wasn’t reduced, the size of the spot wasn’t reduced and both solutions broke me out even more so I’m afraid to say this product is a massive no go!

Repurchase? No.

    Sorry to read this didn't work at all. I'm currently using La Roche Posay Effaclar dou for my breakouts, and it does work! 🙂

    I believe that rarely do these quick fixes work! When I had spots they used to make them worse all the time, great honest review! I'm a new follower to your blog 🙂 xx
