Beauty Find - Glossier Zit Stick




Glossier has come up with an effective acne spot treatment inspired by the Tide Stain Stick!  It's called Glossier Zit Stick and I found that their claims that it can reduce the size and appearance of pimples in 3 Hours to be true.



How is this possible?   Zit Stick is meant to be used at the first sign of a pimple and applied three times daily.  The formula doesn't just contain the traditional acne treatment, Benzol Peroxide, which kill the germs that cause acne. and shrinking their size, along with Tea Tree Oil and Capryloyl Salicylic Acid (a less irritating derivative of Salicylic Acid).  The portable pen is designed to live in your pocket, bag, and daily life. 
To use for the FIRST time, you may need to click the bottom the pen at least 15 times or more to get the product flowing.  Then you will see little white dots at the top of the antimicrobial stainless steel tip (see image above left),   

The product went on my skin clear and it absorbed within seconds.  It didn't leave any white residue or sticky feel on my skin.  For best results, I recommend waiting a few minutes before applying additional skincare like sunscreen, or makeup.

The first day, I applied it 3 times a day as directed and I did notice that by the second application my pimple was smaller, less red and less raised.  By the next day, my pimple was almost completely gone!  I used it again 3 times and 2 days later it had disappeared completely, my skin wasn't irritated and it didn't leave much of a dark mark (hyper pigmentation) on my skin.

Aside from the convenient packaging and size, I also loved that the formula worked well over my makeup for the 2nd and third application during the day.  It dried clear and didn't cause any flaking, smudging or color change with my makeup.  Glossier Zit Stick is a skincare game changer and a must have for your skincare collection.

Note: Since products with Benzoyl Peroxide make skin extra sensitive to the sun, it’s especially important to wear sunscreen daily when using Zit Stick
