Lioele AC Control Night Spot Trouble Hunter - Sulfur Spot Treatment Review
Sometimes I get acne spots that I cannot get rid of by using my usual tea tree spot treatment. When I get these spots, I usually need to treat it with something more powerful. One of the best things I have found for combating spots on my face is sulfur.
There are many products that contain sulfur, most of them as masks or spot treatments. The first spot treatment I ever used was the Lioele AC Night Spot Trouble Hunter. Yes, the name is a mouthful, but the product is affordable and tends to work well.
The product comes in a small glass bottle, which is not really good for transporting or storing. The bottle is cute, pink and girly, but the first bottle of this product I purchased ended up shattering on my bathroom floor, leaving a huge, pink, powdery mess on the tile. Not to mention, I was picking up tiny shards of glass for weeks! Though, if you're careful with the bottle, it shouldn't be a problem.
The bottle is about half liquid and half powder. When left on a shelf or counter, the powder eventually settles to the bottom. This is important because you want the powder on the bottom before you use the product.
How to Use
To use the AC Trouble Hunter, dip the end of a cotton swab into the bottle, down to the powder. Make sure some powder gets on the swab and lift it out. Touch the cotton swab to troubled areas on your skin. If you need more powder, use the opposite end of the cotton swab to get more powder out of the bottle. Don't reuse the same end of the cotton swab. This can cause bacteria growth in the bottle.
Allow the product to dry. Leave the powder on your blemishes overnight. Wash with lukewarm water in the morning or with your usual cleanser.
I had overall good results while using this product. When used as directed and left on overnight, there was a visible reduction in the size and redness of the acne spots on my face. After using it two to three nights, the spots were reduced to nothing!
The product also lasts a really long time. It does cost anywhere from ten to twenty dollars, but it takes months for me to finish an entire bottle of the product.
Along with a gentle cleanser and toners, this is one product that will always be on my shelf. It is effective and cheap and less harsh than using a benzoyl peroxide cream.
