The addition of sodium ascorbyl phosphate, a stable form of vitamin C, helps to brighten uneven skin and provides antioxidant protection from environmental stressors, working to reduce the chance of blemishes reoccurring.

This is such an incredible product! And I really would not want to be without it anymore. It treats spots quite literally overnight and calms the inflammation and redness down. Have successfully used it on my partner too and he’s been impressed too. It looks like a small tube but it will definitely last a lot longer and is much better value for money than the cheaper products out there. Would definitely recommend!

Really works to reduce redness and inflammation, especially good for angry red bumps that haven’t come to a head. I use in combination with a light moisturiser and it does a great job of reducing spots without stinging, tingling, or drying out the skin. The smell is nice and herbal. 9ml is a stingy size though.

Good for little blemishes

I think this is a good treatment if you have a particularly angry spot and looking for something soothing. I think this is great for that. However it is definitely a spot treatment if you were looking for something for acne prone skin you'd probably want something like a serum or acid to treat the whole face. For the occasional angry spot this works good for me.

Excellent for stuck acne

I come across this product when I searched for acne treatment online. I don't usually have breakout but there's a time when I got four / five really big and blocked pimples on my face. They've been staying on my face for over two weeks and it's just painful and red. After I used this gel for three days, it broke out and the acne clears.

just regular

I purchased this product after my vacation from the beach. My face was sensitive and had redness probably from the sun exposure. I hope this targeted treatment cream from Aesop can help. I applied it as instructed for a week before I decided this post this review. So far, I did not see any improvement so I do not think this cream works up to what it claims to.
