Best Spot Treatment The A-List Love

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, £16

LOOK's Digital Editor, Robyn Munson, says...

"This spot treatment is not only Kylie Jenner's favourite, but mine too! I apply before bed as it works best overnight, practically zapping and shrinking pimples and whiteheads into oblivion. The other perk of this lotion is that where other spot creams can dry the surrounding skin, this one doesn't irritate at all, meaning it's great for all skin types."


Best Spot Prevention Treatment: 

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+, £15.50

LOOK's Beauty Editor, Sam Freedman, says...

"I love La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+, £15.50. It's more than just a spot treatment, I slather on the cream everyday after cleansing and moisturising and not only does it actually prevent breakouts, but it instantly leaves my skin smoother and minimises pores - making it the perfect base for make-up. As well as keeping me blemish-free, the formula is super-hydrating, so I know it won't dry out my skin. 


Quick-Fix Spot Treatment:

Elemis FreshSkin Skin Clear Treatment Gel, £13,5

LOOK's Beauty Writer, Victoria Jowett, says...

"If I get a spot I need a treatment that'll blitz it asap. That's why I always keep Elemis' FreshSkin Skin Clear Treatment Gel, £12, in my handbag for any breakout emergencies! I just dab a little of the gel onto the spot and it takes down the redness straight away. Keep applying the gel throughout the day and it'll cut the spot's life in half - genius!"

Best Spot Treatment For Sensitive Skin:

Avene Cleanance Expert, £15

LOOK's Beauty Assistant, Gabrielle Dyer, says...

"Avene Cleanance Expert, £15, is my go-to spot stopper. The clever moisturiser actually helps to control my skin's oil production, meaning I don't get breakouts (or a shiny t-zone, yay!). I use it after cleansing, in place of moisturiser and it keeps redness under control all day. the gentle formula contains no nasties, so I know it won't irritate my sensitive skin."


Best Spot Treatment For Dark Spots:

Formula Advanced Nurolight Dark Spot Correcting Serum, £19.50

Look's Beauty Intern, Lucia Bordi, says...

"This serum works a dream on the dark spots I get, particularly after I've been in the sun. It gives an all over coverage which is light and not sticky like other serums. It evens my skin tone and makes my skin appear more radiant."
