As of now, all of you might have already come to know that I have combination skin and during the humid season, my acne gets a little unpredictable. You can never even guess, when a pimple might just pop up. Hence, it is really important to keep some spot treatment products ready to zap the zits. I got a new one and used it for pretty much 3 weeks. Read further to know, how it worked.

My Experience with Natio Acne Clear Spots Purifying Spot Treatment:
Most of the spot treatment products are ineffective, so I was badly hoping that at least this would work. I got a cute tube from Natio, which claims to be a magic potion and would treat my acne on the spot. This spot treatment product comes in a mint coloured inverted tube, which is medium in size. Hence, it proves to be very travel-friendly.
The tube has a nozzle, which directly gives out the cream on a little squeeze. I generally apply the cream directly from the nozzle, as it is not advisable to use the fingers because that might just spread the bacteria even more. The spot treatment is white in colour and has a thick consistency. But, it has to be shaken a little before using or it might just give out a runny liquid.
The smell is very weird and annoying. It smells like an oil tin that is used for cooking. I do not understand, why have they put in this smell? I mean, it could have been much better without a smell too.
I applied the cream for at least 3 times a day, keeping it on for 30 minutes, each time. On using it once the first day, it did not bring any noticeable change. But after using it thrice a day, I could notice results after 2-3 days. So, they made a false claim because this did not work like a magic potion.
After 2-3 days, the size of my pimple had reduced and the redness had faded too. They were less noticeable than before and they could be concealed perfectly now.
It does feel soothing on the skin, if you apply it to a fresh pimple. But, if you have a sensitive skin, it might cause a tingling sensation initially, which calms down as it settles. It did show results, but it took a casual time of 2-3 days. But as far as I know, a pimple subsides on its own in that time period.
So, the process is natural, then why would I really take efforts to apply it thrice a day and plus put in the money to get this? I do not think it has a genuine answer to offer me. So from my side, I would call it a skip. But, it may react differently to different skin types. Though, I can ensure you one thing, there will be no immediate results.

Cons of Natio Acne Clear Spots Purifying Spot Treatment
- Might cause a tingling sensation, if you have a sensitive skin.
- Cannot be called a magic potion, as they claim because magic is instant but the results were not.
- Took 2-3 days to show results, but those results can be obtained naturally as the pimple dries up on its own in 2-3 days.
- The smell is disgusting, like some oil tin used for cooking.
- Does nothing for the blemishes.
Will I Repurchase/ Recommend Natio Acne Clear Spots Purifying Spot Treatment?
No, I would not. It did work a bit but it is too tedious to apply it 3 times a day. The pimples size and redness reduced in 2-3 days, which would happen naturally too, so there is no need to take efforts with this.
Most of the spot treatments do not pretty much work well, but I am happy that this did. Even though it did not completely excel, but it at least showed some visible results. If you guys know any home remedy, which is tried and tested for instant spot treatments than surely do let me know.
