spot gun - turmeric + ginger acne treatment (great for hyperpigmentation too!)

£11.00

recurring inflammation, dark spots, or acne, is a whole other level of WTF annoying. seriously worse than the ex who texts you hey every six months…

you know those dark spots and acne scars that linger long after your zit has disappeared? our spot gun can fix that! turmeric, ginger and tea tree oil are the three hero ingredients that come together to visibly brighten your dark spots and balance your complexion, while soothing and calming your skin.

so stop picking your zits, forget about toothpaste, and start using this spot gun RFN.

ps. our skincare products are made in our facilities in Banbury, Oxfordshire, and so it's made, packed and shipped from there.

ingredients

helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, hydrogenated vegetable oil (soy wax), melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil, citrus limonum (lemon essential oil), zingiber officinale (ginger) root powder, curcuma longa (turmeric) root powder.

how to use

post cleansing, apply our spot gun for 20 minutes (or longer). then use a toner or any of our facial oils to gently wipe off the area. repeat as many times as you wish!

turmeric is the Beyonce of all spices, that means it’s extra powerful but can be hard to remove from skin, hence the oil helps pull out the pigment from your skin. don’t worry though, turmeric doesn’t stain your skin.

The best at fighting redness

I'm currently pregnant and safe to say that my skin is really doing me a solid. I have acne prone skin and find that combined with mask wearing I'm breaking out a lot at the moment. My skin reacts badly to being dried out so this is amazing.
The texture is a balm (as I've tried to show in the video) and it's very yellow so is very obvious if you're wearing during the day (which I have been in the office IDC). It works so well at helping heal and draw out spots into whiteheads and hurry them up.
The best part for me is how it handles redness. 10/10 at reducing redness and inflammation and when I put this on it really soothes my skin. Thank you MBS 😊

Good

The spot gun is good. Can see my new pimple scars are fading a bit. The old ones don’t see much change

Hi Huong,

Thanks for your feedback - super appreciated!

You can let it work overnight for extra effect on new spots. Just make sure you're using a pillow case you don't mind staining a bit and to wash it off in the morning. You can also let it do its magic for longer while you're working or chilling from home.

Hope this helps,
Chaymae

Alright

An alright spot gum, but with a few caveats. Firstly, the main criticism is that it simply isn’t strong enough as a spot/pimple acne treatment. As in the name it is a SPOT GUM, so it should really be made much more drying so that it actually removes the spot/pimple! It simply ISN’T VERY EFFECTIVE. Secondly, while both the scent and colour are lovely, the colour does stain pillow cases which isn’t ideal. All this said however I do see great potential - the ingredients as always with MadeBySunday are excellent and the perfects ones, I would just turn up the amount of tea tree for that antibacterial and drying effect which is key to actually getting rid of your spots faster. Looking forward to version 2 (with the same scent please 😍)

Hi Review Guy,

Love the name and so happy to hear from you! I'm really disappointed to hear this but let's go through it together.

You're right, spot gun is a gentle alternative to regular drying spot treatments. It's actually exactly the effects we want to avoid. Granted, hydroxide peroxide in typical drugstore product is more potent and more effective to treat spots, but these leave skin dry and deteriorate your skin barrier. You might not see it now, but over time, it's a big no no.

We also have a commitment to sticking to plant-based ingredients only. So how can we make that work to tackle spots? The key with spot gun is to leave it a bit longer than 20min, overnight works perfect or during the day if you're at home and not bothered. It works overnight to 'dry' up the spot without actually drying it out.

Hope this helps, anything else, please come back to us!

Best,
Chaymae

I’ve only just started consistently using it and it has already started to clear up some of my new breakouts and lightening my hyperpigmentation.
