I've always had oily, acne-prone skin. Always. So, I'm used to having some sort of blemish or spot on my face that needs concealing. It's just the way it is. However, when I tried a new sunscreen on my face (Supergoop!) it made me break out with (gross) large cystic spots that sprung up literally overnight.
While my Urban Decay Concealer does work wonders, the two-spots were still painful and needed to GO! Typically, a salicylic acid based skin treatment would do the trick, however, I am allergic to salicylic acid so I thought I was in for either a red blotchy face or giant mounds of acne for a few weeks until I googled and found the Burts Bees Acne Spot Treatment with Salcylic Acid.
Now I know what you're thinking, didn't you just say you were allergic to that? Yes, I am, however, the Burts Bees version of this is actually derived from Willow Bark and so far, so good. This is a prime example of natural versus lab grown making all the difference in the world. With just one treatment, one of the spots went down noticably. Now, I'm on my third treatment and one is nearly gone while the other is noticably smaller.
I'm so happy I found this stuff, otherwise, I'd be walking around with giant gopher mounds on my face all week. If you've had the same issue I've had with Salicyclic Acid I suggest you try this one out. It worked for me.
