Witch – Blemish Stick
This post may contain affiliate links.
I often get oily patches on my combination skin and more often than not this leads to a breakout of spots. Generally these occur on my chin, but recently I have also had a breakout above my right eyebrow too. So in my bid to use more natural skincare products I have been trying out Witch Blemish Stick to see if it was up to the job.
Witch is a skincare brand that I haven’t tried before, all of their products are based around the natural ingredient of Witch Hazel, a plant which grows wild in the USA. Witch Hazel is an astringent, which tightens the skin when applied helping to reduce re-infection and inflammation. It also helps to close damaged skin and encourages healing.
Witch Blemish Stick is a little blue plastic bullet with a screw-off lid. Inside is a solid block of blue ‘gel’ which you push up from underneath and then apply to your skin. The packaging isn’t pretty or clever, this product is all about the treatment.
I use my finger to apply the product as I don’t like the idea of constantly touching the end of the gel onto infected skin, it’s not particularly hygienic. The gel is clear and feels cool when it is applied to the skin and it sinks in and disappears quickly. Avoid broken skin, or particularly sensitive skin as it can make these areas sting a little. Also avoid getting it on the lips as it tastes horrible and bitter!
I have been applying Witch Blemish Stick at night before bed to any oily breakout areas, and have found that it does a great job of drying them out overnight. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone with oily or combination skin, or who gets the occasional breakout. It’s not a miracle product, but at £2.89 it’s great value, it contains a natural ingredient and deserves a place in your skincare kit.
Witch Blemish Stick is priced at £2.89 and can be purchased from Boots. Witch also do a Blemish Gel in a tube which would be more hygienic to use than this stick, however I haven’t tried this yet.

If you have acne or particularly frequent skin breakouts I recommend you visit your doctor or a dermatologist. Skincare products can only do so much and these skin problems need to be treated from the inside out.
