Witch Naturally Clear Blemish Stick Review

Witch Naturally Clear Blemish Stick

Isn’t it funny how products come and go, and in this case come again?  I used the Witch Naturally Clear Blemish Stick* when I was a teenager as one of my main spot fighters.  Back then the packaging was a dull mint green.  Fast forward a decade (Oh my god!) and here I am rediscovering an old favourite. I’ve been road testing it again to see if it’s still as useful on my skin now that I’m in my twenties as it was in my teens.
Witch are of course, famous for using witch hazel in their products which has some amazing skin care qualities.  It naturally cleanses, tones and soothes the skin without being too harsh and doesn’t smell to bad either.  The Witch Stick is a handy little product designed to get rid of those pesky spots we all get from time to time.  The formula is designed to help break down excess oils and fights the bacteria that the spot  is brewing so that it goes away a lot quicker than if it were to be left to develop and clear naturally.  You don’t even need to wait for the spot to properly appear on the skin.  Once you start getting the first few grumblings (that time when you KNOW a spot is coming!) you can whip this baby out and dab it straight onto clean skin.   The gel based formula is absorbed into the skin fairly quickly without leaving behind any residue or wet patches, so you can apply this under makeup.   I’d recommend using it on clean skin and reapplying every few hours or so for maximum effect. 
Comparing it to my other spot fighting favourite, the Origins Super spot remover I would say that this does take a little longer to get going on the little blighter.  However the witch stick is a lot less drying on the skin and I’ve noticed that there is non of the flaking that I usually see with SSP.
Each stick contain 10g of product and I can still remember this product from when I was a teenager, lasting for months and months so for £2.89 from Boots it’s definitely a bargain.  It’s also a much cheaper and easily accessible alternative for SSP as you can get this all over the UK high street and in supermarkets.  I really like Witch products.  They’re a fantastic high street brand and all the products I’ve tried so far have worked pretty well.  I’ve also reviewed their Anti Blemish Primer and Anti Blemish BB cream and will definitely be trying their concelear too.  What’s your favourite Witch product?
