I am a teenager and have suffered with mild to moderate acne for 2 years. I have tried most acne products available including clearasil, proactiv, prescription topical treatments and antibiotics. None of which worked. Then my boyfriend bought me a bottle of Grease Lightning. It is my HG! it cleared up all existing spots that my proactiv did not even touch and I have not had one spot since using this product. I use it in conjunction with Lush Tea Tree Water and would recommend this to anyone with mild to moderate acne. It also helps tighten pores and is very useful to use under make up. I love this product!!
I like this product alot. I get spots depending on the time of month it is. I dab a little of this on at night and by morning the spot is visibly reduced ie, less red and less inflamed, almost gone completely. I apply this just before my moisturiser and it seems to work okay doing it that way! =D
I had the sister product, Tea Tree Toner and I had to stop using it due to it drying my face up but I have had no similar problems with this.
This product did not work for me as an acne treatment.
but i discovered a different use for it
i now use it as a primer. my skin has for some reason made a drastic change from dry to oily skin. I find I have to continuously blot my face throughout the day. Not to mention the oils totally alter the look of the foundation half way through the day. I've used many primers before, and they have all severely broken me out, or caused some sort of irritation. This product however, kept my face matte all day. Best part zero break outs. The fact that its meant for acne treatment, makes it feel like i'm helping my skin too
I'm on the fence about this one. It's a little pricy for me... $12 for a small pump bottle... but I wanted to give it a try after hearing some good things.
First off - it makes your skin EXTREMELY tight after use, so you have to follow with a good moisturizer. It gets to the point where I can't even smile after it dries on my skin.
It hasn't really cleared up my acne much, though it does reduce redness. Also, paired with baby powder and mineral foundation, it reduces oil alright.
I like the pump bottle - very convienent.
Not sure if I would repurchase, though. Need to see some better results if I do that.
I have acne prone skin, so all of you in my shoes know that the hunt for a good product that will reduce oil and keep your acne to a minimum is ongoing. I literally have tried hundreds of acne products. I have gotten so fed up because some have even made it worse, but this one didn't. This product cleared me up in the first day of using it. There is no irritation with this product like others either. This product is also fairly inexpensive. Any product that can do its job well and be purchased for cheap is a winner in my book :)
At first I was IN LOVE with this product. It completely cleared up my pretty bad skin within a week. Fastforward one month and it had made it worse than it ever was before. Cystic acne..how wonderful :L I stopped using it immediately. It took a few weeks for my skin to settle down again. A couple of months later I had one spot so I decided to chance it. I used one tiny dab, woke up the next morning and my skin was back to square one. Avoid Avoid Avoid if you have sensitive skin...
I used to use this product years ago and it did nothing for me then but I was reacting to Avene's Cleanance K and thought I'd give this another shot as acne treatments prove ineffective for me and this was no exception, there was no reduction in pimple, no reduction even in it's redness despite using twice a day as an all over serum and several other times in the day as a spot treatment. It doesn't matter how often or infrequently I use Grease Lightning it does nothing for me and I really wished it would have, I have yet to find any spot treatment that makes any difference at all to my stubborn pimples.
This porduct is really soothing. Most of the acne treatment are so strong and feels like burning on the skin. Since it is natural product and feel very nice on the skin. I use two times a day after i washed my face with Coal face cleanser. Redness on my face is reduced. My pimples are dries up over night. Good product. Recommended!
i have tried many spot treatments but i LOVE this one ... no excessive drying & it helps my skin heal itself back to normal, reduces redness & irritation. been using for a couple weeks, after I cleanse & tone & so far this does a great job!! MUST be applied w/clean hands though!! i read so many reviews about how this gave people bad skin but seriously you have to have clean hands & preferably clean face too. continued >>
Grease Lightning didn't seem to do anything for my blemishes. It did feel soothing, but the appearance of my blemishes was unchanged.
