Lush Grease Lightning

lush grease lightning

While doing my yearly Lush bath bomb sale order, I noticed they had quite a few extra items in the sale.  I'd heard a lot about Grease Lightning and how much other people rate it so I decide to give it a shot and see what all the fuss is about.

Over the years I've tried so many different spot treatments.  Ones like tea tree oil sticks, witch hazel.. you name it.  Normally they're much too strong and the pain is never worth the disappointing result.  Thankfully, Grease Lightning is different.

Grease Lightning is a gel formula made from tea tree and witch hazel which you apply directly to the spot.  Unlike the previous ones I've tried, this is probably the most gentle spot treatment I've come across.  The gel has a sort of watery consistency and when you apply it on the skin, it feels very cooling and relaxing.  Also as an added bonus, it's also a vegan product.

Once applied it dries and sort of forms a protective layer over the spot.  As for it's effectiveness, after wearing it overnight I definitely did notice a reduction in my blemishes.  I would say it's definitely not a miracle worker and they won't disappear completely overnight but with regular use it really makes a difference.

One thing I would say is that while it does reduce the spot size, it doesn't do so much for redness in my case.  So if you're looking for something to reduce the redness, I'd recommend something like the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion which will absolutely reduce it.

I'm definitely impressed by Grease Lightning.  It might be more effective on different kinds of spots but for anyone having problematic skin, I'd recommend giving it a go!

  3. I tried out the product and had a reaction just over a year ago. My skin has healed up since but there is still some pigmentation or scarring left over. I definitely found it far too strong and I often find that to be the case with many other spot treatments as you mentioned. I have a sample size of the Clinique one and it's quite strong but not too harsh. It might be one to keep in mind!

    Oh my goodness, that's terrible! I wonder what caused it, I often think most spot treatments are far too strong. Everything ok now? Definitely staying away from that one. xx

  5. It ended up giving me contact dermatitis and I had to apply a topical antibiotic over the area for a week! It was awful! I thought it was going to be good after all the great reviews, but it just turned out horribly for me! I've heard some more negative reviews since. I'm staying far away from it from now on! Hopefully this LUSH one will work out for me!

    Oh no, everyone raves about the Origins one too. Did it sting your face? The Lush one is super gentle and cooling so no chance of that happening! xx

  9. I'll have to keep my eyes out for this and consider giving it a try. I haven't been able to find a good blemish treatment and after a horrific experience with the Origins Super Spot Remover, I've been incredibly careful about what I put on my face.

    It's lovely stuff isn't it! I'm sad I didn't discover it sooner, definitely much better than those painful treatments! - Sami x
