I’ve wanted to try out Sarah Chapman skincare for a long ole while now and have been lusting after the much-hyped Overnight Facial for ruddy yonks, but still haven’t been able to bring myself to hand over £45 in return. It’s an ongoing issue. But when I spied the rather unique Sarah Chapman Skinesis Spot Stickers in Space NK, I wasted no time in dashing to the cashier; a spot treatment that I have yet to try?! Consider me sold.
Now I don’t know about you guys, but the whole concept of a spot sticker was entirely new to me. Creams, gels, topical treatments – I’ve tried and tested ’em all, but none quite as quirky as this skincare solution. The stickers themselves are formulated with salicylic acid, along with a whole batch of other brilliant blemish-fighting ingredients, including Vitamin C and Grape Seed Oil. They are incredibly thin and can be worn under make up if so desired. Having tried and tested this technique, I can confirm that they are very easily hidden, but I found the concept of wearing a sticker on my face throughout the day a bit bizarre so I’ll probably be sticking to an evening application.
And after my first overnight spot sticker experience, I have to say I was blown away. Not only did it manage to stay attached to my once-hideous blemish throughout the night, it also helped to seriously reduce the size of the blemish, while also tackling some unwanted redness which had flared up around it. Needless to say I was pretty ruddy impressed with the whole process and am actually feeling ever so slightly more relaxed about my next breakout, now that I know I”ll have these on hand to help.
In terms of price, while these product is a whole lot more wallet-friendly than the Overnight Facial, it still doesn’t come too cheap; in addition to the giddy thrill of sticking stuff to your face, £19 gets you just 16 spot stickers – and a very fancy white leather case which is ideal if you want to sling some of the stickers in your bag for any on-the-go blemish-related emergencies.
I have to admit though, this really is one luxury I think it might be worth forking out for, particularly if you’re struggling with any big beasty blemishes. Now the Overnight Facial on the otherhand… Well that’s another story entirely. I think.
