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.
Grease Lightning didn't seem to do anything for my blemishes. It did feel soothing, but the appearance of my blemishes was unchanged.
pimples and acne disappear everytime. HG of acne treatment. Nuff said.
A little bottle of this lasts a very long time. A little does go a long way when it comes to Grease Lightning. While it didn't stop all my acne or heal everything, it certainly doesn't make them worse. If I get one of those painful pimples or just a rather big one, I would put a bit of this on top overnight, and by morning it whitehead and I usually just pop it. And it just deflates. Some people might be against popping pimples, but I just can't stand having a white puss bump on my face. So in that aspect, the spot cleanser helps.
honestly i did not feel this did anything for me. i still got some breakouts here and there and the pump keep getting stuck.
i use it as like a serum before i moisturize every morning and evening
i would not buy this ever again
At first I didn't think this did anything...but I guess I didn't know what I had until it was gone! I can't wait to go buy a new bottle because since my old one ran out, my chin has been breaking out like crazy!
I use this like a serum all over my face before moisturizing and after cleansing. It feels moisturizing, and dries quickly. If you use it as a spot treatment, though, be careful not to put too much on because it can get flaky if you use a ton. I originally bought this for my bf who gets break outs on his forehead from hats and touching his face a lot. This didn't do much for him, but it worked on my hormonal chin breakouts.
This is runny gel which isn't too strong like some other spot treatments are. I use this almost like a serum, I put it on inbetween washing my face and moisturising. Not near the eyes but mainly concentrating on the T zone, chin and forehead.
I can tell this works because if I miss an area of my face for a few days the I will get a spot in that area and then as soon as I start applying this onto the area again it clears up. Sounds too good to be true but the downside is that I feel like my skin now relies on this product - have no idea what I'll do if Lush ever discontinue this!
Aside from keeping my skin clear from spots and redness, it also makes my skin look brighter, it feels cool, toned and smooth.
I bought this along with a few other Lush skincare products, and this is the only one I would not repurchase. I don't have severe acne, but I do deal with hormonal breakouts. With the first few applications I thought this was helping, but after the 4th or 5th application, my small acne turned into raging cystic acne in the places I applied this product. I discontinued usage, and my acne cleared up. Just to be sure, I applied it once more, and yes, there was the bad acne again.
The ingredients in this are lovely, and I see that it works well for many people. However, it clogged my pores terribly and created the worst acne I've ever had.
