  • Excited spot gel

    Tiffany N. October 17, 2020

    Gifted by Follain.

    This is the first time I use spot gel to tackle breakouts and control shine. My skin is combination so this gel helped to improve immediate. I used 2 time everyday so I saw the working result (after within a day)
    Also, it works for me when I wear mask all day because of working. It controlled oil level in my face.
    Just reminder, we should wash your face before using spot gel because I felt itching and uncomfortable when I forgot to wash my face.
    However, one thing I dont like for this product, too difficult to open and the design for package is not good. Should improve to design package.

  • very soothing

    Yoanny C. October 16, 2020

    I received this product complimentary from Follian. I love how it helped reduce redness and clear my face. Its very soothing and gentle, so you can use it night and day. It helps reduce oil and and dead skin, thanks to that my skin definitely feels and looks better!

  • This is a review about the oil free spot gel!

    Lily October 11, 2020

    The treatment gel was very effective. It really helped clear my skin a lot. The texture of the spot treatment was good and I pretty much like it. It is also an oil free product which goes perfectly with my skin.

  • Reduce your imperfections

    Noel.tineo. October 09, 2020

    I received it complimentary from Follain. First of all, I have blemishes and my T zone gets oily fast, so this cream has improved my T zone, especially nose and chin, I just put some on those problem areas after cleanser and it absorbs pretty fast and doesn’t leave a sticky feeling after use. I absolutely love the fact that I can use it up to three times a day which is beyond exciting for me, it’s not often the product is so gentle that you can use it multiple times a day. I also use it for my red spots or wherever I see that tone of skin needs to be more even. The biggest perk is natural salicylic acid that hidden in Willow bark extract, which means no irritation! My extra sensitive skin can’t get enough with it. Overall, this cream is super innovative and targets blemishes and some imperfections on my face so well, ingredients are pretty clean and cruelty free which is important for me. I love it!

  • the best spot treatment I have ever used.

    Adriele October 09, 2020

    Gifted by follain . I was really surprised by this product. I had active acne that was very painful, I used it before going to sleep the other day I didn’t feel anything anymore. so far, it is the best spot treatment I have ever used.

  • Great, non drying spot gel, that gets rid of all acne!

    Nikki L. October 08, 2020

    I recieved this product complimentary from Follain, for my honest review.
    I was extremely excited to have received this product due to my constant acne issues. I figured at 31 years old, I would be close to done with acne. Thankfully to great products such as this one, my acne has seriously decreased, without completely drying my skin out. Compared to other products, this product didn’t dry my skin out, didnt leave dry patches, and quickly absorbed into my skin when applied on my acne. The formula is extremely thin, and gel like. I use it both in the morning, and night. It surprisingly goes well under foundation. Other products I’ve tried could only be applied at night time before bed. This spot gel has virtually no smell to it, and is full of great ingredients. It’s great, because it controls oil, protects, balances, calms, and soothes, both my acne, and skin around it. The only complaint I would give is that the top to the squeeze tube is hard to open, and quite a bit of product spills out, due to that. I would reccomend putting this spot gel in a different container at home, for easy use. I reccomend to everyone, even those with dry skin. The product is definetly worth the price. This product works better then others, and is easier on the pocket!

  • best little product

    Jennifer October 07, 2020

    I received this gifted by Follian

    This is a neat little product. My skin is horrible and I breakout a lot and am very oily. I’m excited to see how this helps me long term. I applied it last night and my skin feels softer and smoother already.

  • Reduces Oily Skin!

    Marissa G. October 06, 2020

    I was so excited to receive this clarifying spot gel gifted to me from Follain. The clean ingredients really provide for an honest product that will keep me as a customer for a very long time. I’m not a huge fan of the smell, however, it does the job! I get really oily on the sides of my nose and under my lip on my chin. Just after one use of this, I noticed my skin isn’t nearly as oily and I am a satisfied customer.

  • very good gel for my pores and blemishes

    Nilab October 06, 2020

    This product was gifted me from Follain in purpose to use it and write my honest review.

    It is first time that I use Follain clarifying spot gel and I found this very unique product.

    The ingredients ginger water, Tasmanian paper, clary saga extracts together works on skin balance and pores oil controlling.

    I used this gel three times a day and I saw a difference in my skin. No shine and blemishes prone skin.

    I love clean beauty and this gel is also clean and there is no chemicals on it.

    I liked its formula and I want to make it as part of my routine.

  • In love

    Sophie F. September 15, 2020

    This is the only spot gel that has ever actually worked for me. I used to use lavender and tea tree essential oil and that was the only solution that worked more than 50% of the time. THIS, however, is genuis. It has stopped sensitive spots from developing, has sped up the healing on already developed spots, and lessened the redness in so many of my problem areas (corner of lips, nose, and between my brows). The only thing is that it doesn’t smell great, but it worked wonders. Cannot recommend! Oh and also, I just open it so that the cap flips up and I dont loose any of the product that way!

  • 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!
