Think about it logically. If it did work, Colgate and the like would market it as spot removal cream and charge you £15 per tube.

No, but I've heard that it kills spotty mouth bacteria.

It dries them out and for some spots it works quite well. But mostly it just dries your skin out and makes it look horrible. Can block pores as well and cause more unless you put it directly on the spot.

There's an ingredient in toothpaste which helps dry it out and is often a quick fix to get rid of spots in a few hours. However, it's not recommended as a long term option, and don't use whitening toothpaste.

Kind of. It dries them up so they aren't as noticeable, but makes your skin horribly dry which is equally as awful.

What works on mine is the cleansing wipes by Witch. Works a treat.

Yeah it does, i think it dries it up or something. Tea tree oil sticks are even better.

What's logical about that?

It's supposed to dry them out.

OP, never really worked for me, I just smelled minty in the morning

The only thing that helped my spots was the pill, but you're a guy so...

I heard that it worked. I've tried it a couple of times, but nothing drastic happened.

People want a tested method from a company they trust. Think about it, do you really use vinegar on grime or do you pay for the fancy cleaning products in the supermarket?

For mice, do you lay out glue traps or do you aim to fill any holes up with cheaper steel wool?

It doesnt work for me. If you want to really kill spots. Use Magnesium Sulphate paste. It is a proper dryin agent and kills them in 2 days. Significantly reduces them in 1 day.

Well I use them to get my make up off, so once a day. But anyone could use them as cleansing wipes. I think they cost around £4 for 25. If you're lucky, you may find them in stores which only cost around 2 quid. I don't think Boots sell them, but Superdrug do. They're in a bright blue packet.

Do they have to be that brand? I've definitely seen stuff like that before?

Not necessarily. But it's the brand that's worked for me. And i've used a lot of different types of wipes. I suppose it depends on your skin and how it reacts. For me, that's the best one.

I find toothpast works better than clearasil or freederm cream.

Acid (spot) + Alkali (toothpaste) = salt + water
