Hate blemishes? So do I! That's why this spot treatment from SkinCeuticals is my new best friend.

Name this product:

SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense (, $82)

How this product looks and feels:

Housed in a sleek bottle with a medical dropper, this product tingles when you apply it to your blemishes. I like the fact that you can immediately feel it working its way into your skin!

What I liked about this product:

The immediate results. The next morning after first using this product, I noticed a reduction in the redness of my pimple. After using for two to three days, the pimple had all but disappeared. When left untreated, a pimple can often last a month for me, so I was amazed at the results. It gave me the most rapid results I've ever experienced short of getting a facial.

Describe what you liked or didn’t like about the application process:

If you have a blemish on your cheek, it's best to have a friend apply due to the medicine dropper-like dispenser, because it's hard to aim the product. But you can get around this by using a Q-Tip instead, so it's not a problem.

Describe the results you saw over time: 

I've been using this product for a few months now, and in conjunction with regular facials and a diligent skin care routine, I've noticed that it rapidly clears up blemishes when they do pop up.

I would recommend this product for: 

Women with acne-prone skin and/or women who want to both treat pimples and fine lines. It's truly a multitasker.

One compliment/comment I received while wearing this product was: 

I used this product a few days before getting a facial. My facialist was amazed at how quickly my pimple had cleared up with the use of this product, and she decided to order some for her clients!
