This product is great for treating spots overnight!.Just a little dab and it works from small zits to cystic pimples on chin/neck.I really like this product,it works.
The only problem I have with this is 1) the price for the amount of product im getting 2) the packaging which makes it hard to squeeze out product.Sigh.

I've been dealing with painful acne breakouts for a few months now and have been at the end of my tether trying everything to get rid of it. I bought this on a bit of an impulse buy. It's a bit pricey at £14 and although the bottle is cute you have to squeeze out some of the product and expose it to the air, dab a bit on and then suck it back in the bottle (its too small to waste any!).
At first I thought that this was a miracle product. I used small amounts on my spots and use it 2-3 times a day, the first night I used it two big nodules on my jawline they were almost completely gone in the morning!
I'm on my first month of the Yasmin pill and it's made me breakout with even more painful acne, I feel like this product still works well but not as well as it first did. Maybe it's just because my acnes getting worse! For people who get the odd spot and want a quick fix I'd say buy this!

I've gone through bottle after bottle of Origins' Clean Energy Cleansing Oil through the years and bought this impulsively at the register because I had a big stress breakout on my jawline.
Big mistake! Between the high amount of alcohol and irritating clove and oregano essential oils, this stung like hell and made the area bright red -- definitely wouldn't recommend using this in the morning! It barely took down my cyst after several days of use and left the area REALLY dry and flaky. Big ripoff at $14.50 for just .3 ounces!

When you first apply this product, it feels as if it's doing something because, for me, it made my skin tight. Unfortunately, when I would wake up after applying it the night before, my skin looked shiny and the blemishes were not at all improved.

I find this really helpful for night time use. It shrinks spots if applied little and often a few times before I go to bed. It is very drying on my dry skin, and this is sometimes noticeable if I wear foundation the next day, so I tend to use it at weekends only. If you have acne or spot prone skin id really recommend you try it! its around £12 but works better than any spot treatment I've tried. It's not a miracle cure, but I don't think one exists

I usually have clear skin, but when I bought this a couple of months ago, I'd been getting occasional but really painful zits on unusual (for me) places like my cheeks. These zits would take their time growing under the skin, look ugly for awhile, make my whole face hurt like a bruise, and usually leave temporary scars. I wanted to avoid all this, so I bought the Super Spot remover at my local Origins. The SA cautioned me to use a very small amount. Per his warning, I was really conservative with it- I'd squeeze it (which annoyingly makes a giant glob appear on top of the bottle) let it go back down into the hole, and tap a Q-tip on the residue. A week after I got the SSR, a monstrous pimple and a smaller one next to it appeared under my cheekbone. I applied the Super Spot remover as recommended, but saw no difference. One day, slightly frustrated, I put more on the Q-tip- definitely not a glob, but enough that I could actually feel the gel as I applied a thin layer to my pimple. I should've figured out my mistake when it burned even more than normal. Soon after, I sported a dark red (almost black!) mark on my cheek. It looked like a cigarette burn! It finally faded slightly, but it's been almost 3 months and I have a resolutely dark pink spot and a smaller one next to it where my acne was. I was getting my makeup done recently and I could feel the woman layering concealer over my my scar. The pimple probably would have left a mark if left alone, but not to the extent that SSR caused. A couple of weeks ago, I got a pimple on my chin that I left alone and the mark it left is almost completely faded in contrast to the scar on my cheek. That said, I had a couple of chin zits that I also used this for when I got it. Though it didn't seem to help that much, I didn't get lasting scars there. I'm staying away from this now... to me, it's better to wait it out than to risk scarring/burning myself with this. I'm normally a big Origins fan, but the SSR is one exception. The only thing I like about it is the adorable tiny bottle.

This treatment is very drying, and leaves my acne very red after use. Although it does reduce pimple size, it doesn't help prevent more breakouts. It also smells weird. So I don't think I would recommend this to many people.

I got a sample of this at Sephora as i got a pretty bad breakout using a Laura Mercier Primer.
I've been using it for the past week. It's pretty strong and seems to be working. I mean i'm not looking for a miracle but it does bring the spots down. The cons for this product is that when i wake up in the morning I find my spots Extremely RED. They look terriable. Although the spots have been brought down they are so red that I have to put on concealor on top of them just to be able to go to work. And i'm sure the concealor causes irritation through out the day and not helping in the healing process.
Because of this factor i can only give this product a 3/5 unfortunately

I bought this to compare it to my La Roche Posay Effeclair AI by which I swear.
Well I have to say, even though the Origins is an effective treatment, I still prefer the Effeclair. Why? Because the Origins is very drying, while the Effeclair is not drying at all but does the same - if not a better - job.
I feel the Effeclair is better at reducing redness than the Origins, because it's not as irritating to the skin.
The Origins is good for huge irritated pimples because it dries any liquid out, but I don't find it as effective for spots that haven't come out yet. And because it's so drying, if you try to use makeup on the spot the next day, it will just look cakey. Not so with the Effeclair, and you get more product for about the same price as well!
UPDATE: I've updated this from 4/5 to 5/5 because I found I can use it during the day on my forehead, unlike the Effeclar. It basically forms an almost transparent layer on top of the spot and stays put all day, and because I have a fringe/ bangs, I can use it on areas that my hair covers, helping to heal those spots even faster! (Still find it too drying though, but I'll live with it.)

This stuff works great! Its especially effective on those pimples that you can feel are beginning to form under your skin. I apply this at night and it really helps minimize the bump and prevent it from getting worse! I like how it stings a little too - i find it soothing! Although it seems like your not getting much product, a little bit goes a long way. I can only use this at night though because its a gel that dries, which makes it obvious if you wear it during the day.
