    Painful but (kind of) effective

    Emilie S. September 11, 2020

    This product dries out pimples but if I use too much it makes my face turn BRIGHT red and start burning. A tiny bit goes a long way. I often accidentally use too much because as other reviewers said, there is something wrong with the packaging so the liquid comes out too quickly.

    Very good product, bad packaging

    Claire V. September 05, 2020

    Similar to other reviews, this product is very nice – applies easily, dries quickly and smoothly, doesn’t sting like chemical spot treatments, significantly reduced redness and the size of pimples and makes them less irritated. I don’t mind the smell, I expect it to be effective, not smell good. I can smell it when I open the tube and apply it but it goes away and I just apply my moisturizer and that’s what I smell.

    The packaging is not good, the cap is hard to open and I end up squeezing product out by the time it has opened – enough space that it feels like a waste of money.

    This would do well in a tube like Indee Lee’s I-awaken serum, needs a small tube to squeeze product through, because you only need less than a pea size to cover a few pimples. where as a dime or nickel size often squeezes out everywhere. I store the tube upside down, so the cap is upward, and open while upward, in hopes this would help — but it does not.

    I think I will find something to put this in so I am not wasting product. Follain, you have a great product please fix the packaging.

    Smells unpleasant

    Lindsay M. September 02, 2020

    I ended up using this only on my body, not my face, because of the unpleasant smell. I wasn’t hoping for roses, but this smells almost rancid to me. I agree with the other reviewer who said that the packaging is bad. I ended up decanting this into a violet glass pump bottle. sadly, this wasn’t really a win for me.

    Completely satisfied

    Carol L. August 28, 2020

    I use this product as a preventative on areas that tend to “break out”. It’s more effectiove than the Rx I had been using.

    Good product, not good packaging

    Emma W. August 27, 2020

    so far, the product seems to be good. i think it works well to settle redness and blemish irritation. i love that it’s a gel, doesn’t sting, and doesn’t dry me out. lovely that it can be applied all over as essentially a serum and feels gentle. smell is not great. packaging is an issue. the top is so hard to open and squirts product everywhere. the hole is too big and product comes gushing out.

    Very effective

    Emma H. August 09, 2020

    This gel is very effective in reducing redness. I like to use it during the day for breakouts because it dries clear and it isn’t noticeable while still being very effective.

    Nice formula, bad packaging

    Delaney August 04, 2020

    I enjoy this product, I like the texture and the scent/non-scent of it. It is really nice. I won’t be repurchasing due to the packaging. The cap is very difficult to open without losing a lof of product.

    Great Formula, Packaging Needs Work

    Erika August 01, 2020

    The formula for this clarifying spot gel is superb. The smell is inoffensive, the gel dries down nicely, and most importantly, I see efficacious results. My only complaint is that the cap is so difficult to pry open that, more often than not, I end up spilling excess product on the counter. I’m not sure if I received a defective tube, but I am not happy with the amount of product that has been wasted. I think that a more accessible cap, or perhaps redesigned dispenser, would help the user utilize a more precise amount of gel. If this were fixed, the product would absolutely deserve 5/5 stars!!!

    Effective and less drying

    Sara D. July 26, 2020

    I’ve been using this as needed along with the balancing cleanser, and the breakout on my face has vastly improved. I have dry skin, and am pleased that this treatment does not leave it feeling tight and dry.

    Maskne no more!

    Eleanor July 24, 2020

    This spot gel SAVED my skin from maskne! I work a job that requires me to be wearing a mask for multiple hours at a time and my skin was suffering. All of the sweat and oil build up was compounded by the mask and was giving me terrible breakouts. I have been using this product for a few days now and have seen a huge difference! Definitely going to get another tube to keep in my work bag.

    Love this!

    Alexa G. July 22, 2020

    This gel is awesome. I have used it several times to improve blemishes and it has definitely helped. I usually use it at night and in the mornings before applying tinted moisturizer. The gel becomes translucents when it dries so you can wear it under makeup or reapply throughout the day, which is amazing!

    Wedding Day Savior!

    Maddie A. July 09, 2020

    I am lucky enough to work for Follain and got to try this beauty out early. Let me say this saved my skin the night before and day of my wedding! Of course had a little red annoying spot appear the day before and applied this treatment night of and a few times throughout the big day and the redness totally subsided. Thank goodness I didn’t need to reach for the Windex!
