Recent review from www.smallfootprintfamily.com about SongCroft Naturals.

The Blemish Blaster surprised me too. Because I wrestle with Chronic Fatigue syndrome (CFIDS/ME), my gut is very leaky, and I have a ton of food allergies, which is why my natural detox systems are so overloaded and sluggish that my skin seems to be the only outlet for toxins sometimes. This means, despite living on the GAPS diet and avoiding dozens of allergens and toxins, I get painful cystic acne and pimples that linger for weeks or months because my immune system is too compromised with my condition to adequately heal them.

This means that when it comes to acne products, I’m a very tough case. Because the root cause of my acne (CFIDS and leaky gut) is ongoing, topical—and even dietary—measures can only do so much. I’ve used every topical acne product out there almost, and I am accustomed to acne products that dry the blemish and often irritate the surrounding skin as well. So accustomed to it, in fact, that I didn’t think Blemish Blaster worked at all, at first.

After about a week of use, my skin just suddenly gently exfoliated in the shower, and many blemishes just kind of lifted off my face, leaving a little red mark in their place. Big, painful cysts that threatened to emerge backed down, and yet there was no dryness and no irritation. I think that’s because of the ingredients: Ethyl Alcohol (made from grain), Witch Hazel, Calendula, Tea Tree oil, Cedar oil, Wintergreen, Lavendula, Bay Leaf, and Myrtle.

The anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory herbs and essential oils in Blemish Blaster worked just as well and just as fast as commercial acne products I’ve tried that contain benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid, but without the irritation, redness, and peeling. And in combination with the Skin Repair Complex, I am now enjoying clearer, softer skin with no irritation or dryness whatsoever. click here to continue reading…
