Oh hey love bugs!
If you're as social media crazy as I am, you've more than likely heard about the little miracles that are Dream Dots* before. Their popularity has spread like wildfire amongst Irish bloggers and blog-lovers alike with just about everybody having their say on the miniature spot treatments. So I thought it'd only be fair if I had a ramble too.
My skin had been kinda too good over the past couple of weeks so everything was bound to go downhill at some point. That point was during the bank holiday weekend. FAB! On Saturday morning I could see what was the start of two little spots on my cupids bow - yes, one of the most horrendous places ever (in the history of spot locations) to get a spot, the pain is like no other (you know what I mean). By Saturday evening they were fully fledged spots, so I thought then was as good a time as any to crack open my Dream Dots and see what all the fuss was about.
I don't think I've ever tried anything similar to Dream Dots (cutest name by the way) to help heal a spot before. They're kinda like little round clear stickers that have a slight cushioning in the centre. You pop one directly on top of the spot and it starts to get to work drawing the impurities out of your skin. These things are perfect if, like me, you're just about to go to bed and you're panicking that the little red swollen bugger on your face won't leave you be in time for your night out.
As the name would suggest, you leave these on over night and remove the next morning. Obviously, depending on the type of spot, you might have repeat this process over 3 nights for it to totally vanish but I definitely noticed a significant difference after just one night. The pain and swelling had minimised but more importantly the redness around the area was completely gone - no more slaving away with makeup trying to cover up what looked like a busted lip! Haha.
I think these are a fantastic and most importantly effective treatment for those of you who get the odd breakout that you can't seem to get rid of (I wouldn't recommend using them on active acne as that's not what they're geared towards). They completely stop you from poking at the spot (don't deny it, we all do it. Haha), so the infection doesn't get worse or spread - winning.
Dream Dots cost €15 and come in packs of 24 with instructions on how to apply them. I don't really think you can go wrong with these for the price. Because they treat the spot so quickly, they're not going to run out fast - I still have the majority of mine! I'd totally recommend you pick up a pack and give them a whirl!
Have you tried Dream Dots yet?
