This might be the spot treatment to end all the rest. From Ilike – the Hungarian-born brand that has been around for 5 decades is their clay-based overnight spot treatment that finally does exactly what most only claim. It gets rid of stubborn breakouts literally overnight. And that’s no joke.
But first, let’s go over the scent, which I wasn’t told about ahead of time. If you drink whisky or scotch (which I do not) you know how it sometimes has that smokey smell which is called peat. I describe it as licking an ash tray because that’s just how it strikes me, but some people are into it and that’s fine. This smells just like that. Not a cigarette, but that from-a-bottle peat smell which I just spent 25 minutes Googling each ingredient inserting it into ‘what does ____ smell like’ trying to solve the mystery, but I realize that I’ve wasted most of Lola’s nap time (which is also my blog time!) doing that. So we’ll just move on not knowing exactly what smells so weird in this tube.
Aside from making my face smell drunk, it’s also super opaque so I end up with greenish tan smears all over my face that are still there in the morning. (Birth control!) But what other treatment stays on that well? Maybe this is why it shrinks inflammation within hours bringing a zit down from DEFCON 5 to something more manageable that I can actually conceal. And while they call it ‘clay’ it’s big guns actually come from Ichthammol, and anti-microbial organic compound used for a host of skin ailmemts for humans and animals alike. It draws out impurities and kills germs and the infection while also calming the skin without drying it out. This, along with zinc, titanium dioxide, a few other natural ingredients and essential oils make a truly effective treatment. It’s without salicylic, benzoyl peroxide, and other harsh ingredients that are often used for breakouts which can dry out the skin often leaving it looking worse than before.
This magical tube of mysterious ingredients might be just what you’re missing if you’re looking to get rid of breakouts quickly.
