Hi my angels, the weather has been very humid lately and like a lot of ladies, my skin has been breaking out. I follow a very simple skin care regimen. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion and Lush Grease Lightning are my cult favourites for taking care of my breakouts. So today, I will be doing the LUSH Grease Lightning Spot Treatment Cleanser Review

LUSH Grease Lightning Spot Treatment Cleanser Review

I know its been quite a long time since I posted something on MBF but that’s because a lot of things have been going on lately. However I know MBF Blog team keeps you guys updated about all the new launches and their reviews. I am so excited these days because a lot of brands like Colorbar, Maybelline, Lakme, Faces Cosmetics have been coming up with back to back launches. Therefore its always a party time in the makeup world. Also, I have been hauling quite a lot of makeup from the national and international brands. I am expecting my parcels from colourpop, NYX, The Body Shop soon. I am planning to do a video as soon as everything arrives. So, make sure you’re subscribed to my YouTube Channel. 🙂

About LUSH Grease Lightning Spot Treatment Cleanser

Grease Lightning is a powerful combination of ingredients that will nip any breakouts in the bud without upsetting the skin around them. We use an infusion of antibacterial and antiseptic rosemary, thyme and tea tree, as well as antioxidant-rich grape juice and witch hazel, which is astringent and anti-inflammatory and is said to soothe redness. This product is ideally applied when you feel a spot is about to erupt – prevention is better than cure.

In Detail LUSH Grease Lightning Spot Treatment Cleanser Review and My Experience

The black bottle is a pretty basic and regular LUSH packaging with a pump dispenser. I love how the pump dispenses just a small pea sized amount enough for one use. Hence, I am not wasting any product. I have an oily to combination skin type. My skin breaks out occasionally.

The product actually looks and feels like a transparent clear gel. It doesn’t have any strong fragrance but if I get my nose really close it it and try to sniff, I can notice some rosemary and mixed herbal smell. After application, the gel actually dries down and form a transparent film like covering on the skin. Therefore I even use in during the day if I have to.

How I Use the LUSH grease lightning treatment

Before a pimple has erupted

Whenever I notice a spot on my skin where a breakout is about to happen, I take one pump of it and apply it on that area. I continue applying it 2-3 times. I always make sure I have this product on the problem area for at least 8-9 hours continuously

On an established pimple

I use it on the breakout and keep it covered all the time. Usually it takes 1-2 days for it to calm down. Then I use it only at night.

The product works amazingly on my skin. It calms down any breakouts whatsoever. Firstly if the pimple has not erupted yet, it will make it stop right there and prevent it from breaking out on my skin. Secondly in case of already erupted pimple, it helps my skin calm down and diminishes the pimple until its barely visible within 2 days itself. In fact, by the 3rd or 4th day, I see that the breakout has completely vanished.

As compared to the Mario Badescu lotion, this product in fact is better in preventing pimples. Both the products work amazing and I can’t choose one over the other. MB drying lotion helps fight even the most resistant or big breakouts overnight. This one isn’t as much drying on the skin and helps clear out pimples before it has even erupted out. Therefore, my skin care will always have these two babies.

  1. This has been my goto anti pimple spot treatment since a very long time. My combination skin breaks out frequently and this product never fails to take care of my breakouts. I wish lush becomes available in India again…
