Review | Witch Blemish Stick

Hi lovelies!

This has been doing the rounds recently in the blogging world, I picked it up on a recent offer in Superdrug. I normally have fairly clear skin apart from constant red cheeks. However for some reason I have recently just  been repeatedly getting ugly spots appearing over my face. I had not changed anything in my skin routine (that I can remember!) so I guess it must be stress and all the hormones etc. lovely.


I have not really used anything from Witch before and actually had high hopes for this after all the good reviews I have read. I love the box packaging of the Blemish Stick, for a cheaper product it makes it feel a lot more high end.
Witch Blemish Stick helps to break down excess oils and bacteria that cause spots.
It contains Witch Hazel which is a popular ingredient in all the spot combating products out there. It is said to  naturally cleanse, tone and soothe the skin, leaving it perfectly balanced, soft and healthy. Very promising.



The Blemish Stick is quite study with a screw on lid, I have thrown it into several bags and it has not been damaged. My one problem is that to get the product to come out of the stick you have to stick your finger underneath and push it up. Then to get it back in the stick you have to use your finger to push it back in. I think it would be much better if it was a swivel function.


The stick itself matches the blue packaging but cleverly applies as a clear gel. It has a strong medical smell, but to be honest I like it as if it smelt all floral it would not fit in with what the product is. It does sting for a few seconds when you apply it on to a blemish, but that fades quickly. It makes it feel like the stick is working, which is always good!

This works. I have applied it over night on evil nasty spots and seen a really big difference the next morning! It soothes it and reduces the redness. It helps to dry the spot out and if I use this it gets rid of it so much quicker.

It is half price at the moment in Superdrug, the normal RRP is £2.85. Bargain.

Have you tried this?

  1. I've used these in the past and I do like them but it dried out my skin too much, so I stopped using! Their primer, concealer and powder are great! Have you tried using witch hazel as a toner? It's really good x

  5. I've had this a while but still not sure if I like it or not. I agree with your about needing a swivel function. I hate have to press on the actual stick to make it go back down and sometimes it hard to actually push it up in the first place!
