I don't normally just buy different things for my face, usually I try and stick to what I know works for me. But when I saw this and the ingredients in it, and the fact that it was only $1 I decided to try it. And I'm so glad I did! It works better then some of my more expensive face cleaner. It does tingles on picked spots or a freshly cleaned face, so I take that as a sign that it's working! It doesn't completely take zits away, but there is no full proof way to do that. But it does help tremendously. All in all totally worth the buck :)
not too bad!
For $1 this is pretty good. It's a handy roller product so it's great for when you're on the go. It's not as strong as I would like, though -- I don't really see it "zapping" any zits. Perhaps it's keeping them from getting worse. It does tingle on picked spots (I know, I'm bad) so I assume it's working at least a bit.
Pretty good for a dollar
I used this for a week and wasn't really sure, but I knew it wasn't much of a financial loss. But then I bought Rapid Clear (Orange bottle, I think Neutrogena) acne spray and spot treatment, and I noticed my acne got WORSE. I used the zit zapper again and the next day noticed it took away the redness and dried up the acne. It hasn't completely eliminated my acne though, but I think it is working.
Sometimes the roller ball stops dispensing on your face, but if you roll some onto your fingertip it picks right back up and you can apply it to any remaining spots.
Works for me :)
I wasn't sure about this when i bought it because of the price and i hadn't used the brand before but the ingredients were really natural so i gave it a go and its been great for me.
Its cheap, does the job and smells good (y)
Don't buy this, it will be a waste of a good dollar. I bought this thinking it would work because of the salicylic acid that it contains but it didn't do anything for the pimples that I had. No, no, NO. Do NOT buy this!
Not For Me
The two things I liked about this product was the natural ingredients and the price is $1. I found that after two weeks or so, the application roller ball wasn't dispensing the product very well, I could barely get it out. As for blemishes, I didn't see a dramatic difference. If you've got a very very large, sore pimple, then for me it semi worked to diminish it. Other than that this didn't work very well for me.
I was a skeptic
I've made a few ELF purchases in the past and have walked by the ELF section at the store and have always overlooked this. With my last ELF purchase, I thought "Sure, why not? If it doesn't work throw it away."
I apply it at night and when I woke up the next morning my pimple had diminish in size. IT ISN'T a replacement to completely cure a pimple or zit fully, but it does contain 1% salicylic acid.
This is a product I recommend.
This didn't work out for me at all, it only made my zit look even worse. It comes with the very cheap price, so I didn't expect a wonder product although I am still a bit dissapointed!
Hit Or Miss, But Surprisingly Worked!
This is one of those products that you ask yourself, "Is it too good to be true?" or "Will this really work?" I was in Target about this time last summer and I had the ugliest zit on my face and I saw this Zit Zapper, then I saw the retail price of $1 and I decided to try it. I know this is going to sound crazy but I applied the Zit Zapper on my cheek that night, and in 24 hours it was gone! I was in shock. However I didn't rate this all 5 stars because I tried it about a month later and it didn't work as well. I still think this is a pretty good product. I think the Tea Tree really helps the product's effectiveness because I use Tea Tree Oil Pads that also help my skin. It's not too liquidy and it doesn't dry out fast. I do think it's a hit or miss like a lot of the $1 e.l.f products, but I would still give it a try, it's only $1.
- It works (sort of a hit)
- Availability (Target or online)
- It could be a miss
