Acne is almost unavoidable. You might have acne when you are a teenager, or when you are on your period, or maybe at random times. For me, all of the above, and now, being pregnant, I still get the occasional acne.
And… I don’t love it. So I am always looking for products, devices or routines that might help me get rid of my acne.
This time I am going to be talking about the FOREO ESPADA Blemish Solution.
First of all: what is the FOREO ESPADA Blemish Solution?
It is a lightweight gel that contains 2% Salicylic Acid, Witch Hazel, Niacinamide, Tea Tree Oil, Panthenol and Lactobionic Acid.
Out of these 6 main ingredientes, the two most important ones are: Salicylic Acid, also known as BHA (Beta-Hydroxy Acid), and Lactobionic Acid, one of the acids known as PHA (PolyHydroxy Acids).
So what do these ingredients do? BHAs go deep into your hair follicles to dry out excess oils and dead skin cells to unclog your pores. Because of these effects, BHAs are most suitable for combination with oily skin.
PHAs on the other hand are chemical exfoliants. PHAs work by exfoliating dead skin cells on the surface, resulting in a more even skin tone and texture, and also help skin-care ingredients penetrate deeper into the layers of your skin.
I know this sounds like a lot of information or maybe it is too complex but the idea is this: this solution contains the best ingredients for your skin to battle acne and blemishes.
The six main ingredients act together by working on a surface level on your skin, but also below the surface, removing dead cells, unclogging pores, and also regenerating your skin.
I personally loved using the FOREO ESPADA Blemish Solution every time I saw a pimple on my face or one that was just about to come about (when your skin starts getting red and a bit swollen).
I’ve used it for about 3 months, and… it works! Which honestly is not a big surprise, considering all the great ingredients it contains and how they work on your skin, as I mentioned before.
Also worth mentioning that BHA has been my «Weapon of choice» in gels, toner and exfoliants when battling acne for many years now, so the fact that I like this product and that it works as advertised is not that big of a surprise.
What did come as a surprise was how much I like using this particular product. I love that the gel is transparent so it doesn’t show on your skin, and that the texture is really clean and doesn’t feel greasy on my skin.
I sometimes use the gel on its own, and some other times I also use the FOREO ESPADA device with it.
The FOREO ESPADA is a blue LED light acne device, which works to target acne below the surface of the skin, before it even has a chance to surface. If you use it in combination with the gel, the results that both the device and the gel provide are even better, but I have also used each of them on their own and loved them anyways.
And now to the most obvious question and probably why you are here: do I recommend the FOREO ESPADA Blemish Solution?
The answer is a big YES. Any product with BHA in particular is great for blemishes and acne and this one is no exception. It is really well formulated, and I highly recommend it!
