It’s a super spot treatment that gets rid of spots really fast, without drying out your skin.
Yes, we've included Salicylic Acid (BHA) along with three other even more brilliant active ingredients that work fast to make the spots disappear and help prevent scars. All without irritation or a crusty mess that is impossible to conceal. While Salicylic Acid dissolves the oil in the spots, pure Bakuchiol, known as the natural alternative to retinol, increases cell turnover to get the spot on it's way. A powerful anti-inflammatory calms redness and irritation at the same time.
Concentrated Spot Treatment effectively addresses the four symptoms of spots, blemishes, zits, breakout and acne-prone skin:
- Unclogs and prevents skin blockages.
- Controls excess sebum.
- Fights bacteria that causes breakout.
- Calms redness and inflammation
It's loaded with anti-inflammatory ingredients, to soothe and calm redness, sensitivity and inappropriate inflammation, while working fast to rid your skin of spots.
In a portable airless pump bottle, it fits into your bag or shirt pocket so you can reapply during the day. Whether you are a teen or suffering mature acne, this intelligently formulated spot treatment will help you.
This and all our products are Vegan Society Certified and cruelty-free.

I suffered from spots and acne from about 13 to 46 years of age and still get the odd one now and then. Thankfully no longer the big craters that were immensely painful and lasted ages. So you can imagine I have tried all sorts, including long term topical antibiotics. I found that topical treatments were either ineffective or they were so aggressive they stripped my skin and created a crusty ‘pie-top’ and it was impossible to conceal spots. I spent a lot of time feeling embarrassed and self conscious and it was worse because I was so senior in famous skincare brands.
This paragraph only, is an update July 2019. All was good until I started taking HRT. So if you are in peri-menopause or menopause, read on. My skin started going bonkers. Big spots (even inside my nose!) and not just on my chin as when I was younger. They were appearing on my cheeks and my skin became quite red and spotty on my nose too. I've been using this product morning and night, even after the spot has cleared, to heal it quick, take down redness and prevent scars. I'm reminded how genius this formula is. (Also using Luxury Facial Wash™ and Gentle Exfoliating Toner™ twice a day)
Salicylic Acid, a BHA or Beta Hydroxy Acid, is commonly used in spot treatments because it dissolves oil and can unclog blockages that cause spots. It's a good ingredient, strong history and it's inexpensive but I don't think it is quite enough on it's own. So I worked with four cosmetic scientists and Professor Karl Lintner, to find other powerful actives that would be suitable for everyone, even an adult acne sufferer with ageing skin. I knew menopausal skin was going to become a thing eventually!
As always I was insistent that they had to have really good clinical results. We used pure Bakuchiol, and what is commonly available on the market is often not pure and therefore not effective. Bakuchiol has recently been touted as a natural alternative to retinol. It speeds up cell renewal, so new unaffected cells are pushing their way to the surface and the older bacteria affected cells at the surface are pushed off. So it speeds up the ridding skin of spots. A.C.Net works in similar ways to Sytenol A, however it does its work differently, and so it exponentially improves the power of the formula, without causing skin damage that simply increasing concentrations of one ingredient can to. Both of them address the blockage, excess sebum, bacterial infection and irritation and redness.
Next of course was anti-inflammatory because inappropriate skin inflammation is causing the spots as well as the fact my products are very active to get you the best results, but I don't want to irritate the skin in the process. MediaCalm has been tested on just shaved skin in clinical trials and it works wonders at calming and soothing.
Obviously it is a much more expensive way to formulate but you and your results are at the heart of all my endeavours. If you've not tried it, or have kids, friends, brothers etc. who are suffering the physical and mental stress of spots, please treat them to a bottle or at least tell them about it.
Check out Luxury Facial Wash and Gentle Exfoliating Toner too. And anyone who has spots must use Iconic Youth Serum because it has essential minerals including healing zinc and echium oil which is super soothing.
