RESQ Anti-Blemish Complex

NZD $43.00


RESQ is a fast-acting acne and spot treatment that decongests pores, dries surface blemishes and calms inflammation by delivering a powerful blend of anti-blemish therapy to the source of breakouts and acne.

A unique clearing complex containing a blend of Salicylic Acid, which gently dissolves the “glue” between dead skin cells to decongest pores; anti-inflammatory Zinc quickly reduces redness and irritation surrounding the blemish, and native New Zealand Manuka assists in wound healing, reducing the risk of bacterial infection, soothing and hydrating stressed-out skin.

Daily Ritual: Do not shake the bottle. Dip a cotton tip into the pink sediment at the base of the bottle. Apply onto clean skin directly onto the surface area of the blemish and leave to dry. Use daily, morning to night, as required. If you shake the bottle, leave it standing overnight, and the lotion will settle.

Contraindications: Avoid using on inflamed, peeling or compromised skin.

Skin Concerns: Blemishes, Pimples, Papules, Pustules, Acne (Grades 1 & 2).

NZ Manuka & Salicylic acid  30 mL  (1.0 fl oz).

RESQ was specifically formulated as a spot treatment to target acne and its associated blemishes, which are the result of chronic inflammatory skin conditions that involve four factors:

    1. Overproduction of skin cells.
    2. Excess skin cells combine with environmental pollution and dirt and get clogged in the pores.
    3. Acnes bacteria (Cutibacterium) is present in the pores, which thrive in oily environments.
    4. Increased oil is often due to excess male hormones (androgens), which stimulate sebum production.

Many anti-blemish products only target one or two of these factors, so creating a treatment that addressed all four within one product was important – as a result, this fast-acting formula gets right to the source of your pimples, papules, and pustules, which may occur not only on your face but also on the neck, chest, and back.

Salicylic Acid is unique because it breaks down the bonds between dead cells skin cells and works deep within the pore to flush out the debris below the surface. Synergistically combined with Sulfur, a natural keratolytic used to treat blemishes and irritated skin, it works as a descaling agent, breaking down excess keratin flakes and debris in the pore. Left unchecked, this buildup leads to congested pores, blackheads, whiteheads, and rough skin, setting the stage for blemishes and breakouts.

Manuka oil has potent antimicrobial properties and impressive research into its efficacy against the bacteria that cause acne. Calamine counterbalances the potentially drying effects of these ingredients, soothing stressed, blemish-prone skin.

The result is a multi-actioned formula that controls oil production, clears pores, and soothes inflammation around the blemish to promote a flawless, clear complexion.


Skin Health Benefits

  • soothes and calms irritation and acne inflammation
  • decongests the pore-lining; flushing out dead cells and debris
  • a natural keratolytic, it peels away dead skin cells to reveal unblemished skin
  • dries up breakouts and balances sebum (oil) production on the surface of your skin
  • a natural antiseptic, astringent, and antimicrobial, it targets bacteria within the pore responsible for breakouts and acne


Salicylic Acid: Works on the uppermost layer of your skin, gently dissolving the “glue” between dead skin cells to exfoliate and remove debris trapped within the pore.
Manuka Honey: Scientifically proven to accelerate skin healing, Manuka honey is a potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial, making it ideal for treating cutibacterium acnes.
Sulfur: A natural keratolytic that also clears the pore-lining for improved skin clarity with continued use.
Bentonite Clay: Unique in the structure; when charged in water, it becomes hydrated, and the electrical and molecular components change and produce electrical charges, causing it to swell and act like a sponge, binding heavy metal toxins from your skin’s surface – drawing impurities from the skin to balance oil production.

    This anti-blemish complex is truly a “rescue!” RESQ Anti-Blemish Complex is the first acne product which I have found to improve the condition very fast. Other products just dry a pimple out but it remains visible for weeks. The sooner you apply RESQ, the faster you get rid of the acne, and you will see pimples disappear within a few days.

The very fact that you have found something that quickly improves your condition is really encouraging to hear Antoine, we truly hope your skin health continues to improve. Samantha
