Resq is a potent blend of anti-blemish therapy that targets breakouts and acne at its source.

Salicylic acid dissolves the “glue” between dead skin cells, whilst anti-inflammatory zinc reduces irritation surrounding blemishes. New Zealand manuka aids in wound healing to reveal a clearer, more balanced complexion.

Skin Concerns: Inflammation, Blocked pores, Blemishes, Acne (Grades 1,2 & 3).

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

Clinical advice

RESQ is formulated as a targeted spot treatment to combat acne and its associated blemishes, addressing four key factors of chronic inflammatory skin conditions:

  1. Overproduction of skin cells.
  2. Accumulation of excess skin cells, pollution, and dirt in pores.
  3. Presence of acne-causing bacteria (Cutibacterium) thriving in oily environments.
  4. Increased oil due to excess male hormones.

While many anti-blemish products focus on only one or two factors, RESQ’s fast-acting formula addresses all four. It targets pimples, papules, and pustules on the face, neck, chest, and back.

Salicylic Acid effectively breaks down bonds between dead and skin cells, penetrating deep into pores to flush out debris. Combined with Sulfur, a natural keratolytic, it acts as a descaling agent, removing excess keratin flakes and debris that lead to congested pores and breakouts.

Manuka oil’s potent antimicrobial properties combat acne-causing bacteria, while Calamine soothes and balances the skin, preventing dryness.


  • Decongests pores
  • Dries surface blemishes
  • Natural antiseptic and antimicrobial
  • Soothes irritation and calms acne inflammation

How to use

Daily Ritual: No shaking is required. Dip a cotton tip into the pink sediment at the base of the bottle. Apply directly onto clean skin on the surface of the blemish and leave it to dry.

Use daily, morning to night, as needed. If you accidentally shake the bottle, let it stand overnight to allow the lotion to settle.

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

Key Ingredients

Salicylic Acid: Works on the uppermost layer of the skin, gently dissolving the “glue” between dead skin cells to exfoliate and remove debris trapped within the pore.

NZ 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 clears the pore lining for improved skin clarity with continued use.

Bentonite Clay: It is unique in its structure. When charged in water, it becomes hydrated, and its electrical and molecular components change. These changes produce electrical charges that cause it to swell and act like a sponge, binding heavy metal toxins from the skin’s surface and drawing impurities from the skin to balance oil production.

  4. Nial

    I have post partim acne and nothing was working on my breakouts but since using Resq they have really cleared up I’m so very greatful for finding this product it’s really helped to clear my skin

  5. Jess

    This is the only thing I have ever tried that has ever worked for surface blemishes. Whenever I notice a whitehead pimple start to form, I dab this on a few minutes before going to sleep and I wake up to a pimple that’s at least 50% flatter or completely gone. It’s almost as though it speeds up the whole start to finish cycle of the pimple. This is down to an impressive array of acne-fighting ingredients: that is natural, non toxic, and beneficial for the skin. Add to that: Calamine lotion which helps with the inflammation aspect and you can start to see how this works on more than one level. You can’t go wrong with any of Samantha’s products. If you have sensitive skin or are conscious about the ingredients in your skincare, you can’t go wrong with any of Naked chemist skincare.

    I purchased this for my son as he has hormonal acne and what a difference, This is my third order and his skin has practically cleared up, we quite literally noticed an improvement in the first week. We are incredibly grateful to you and creating such wonderful products.

      Were really pleased your son is getting great results and that in as little as 3 months in line with full cellular turnover his skin recoverd.

  7. Antoine Scicluna

    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.

    • Samantha Miller

      Antoine, I appreciate you have been on quite the journey with your skin, as we have with creating a journey that effectively targets cutibacterium acnes within the pore. 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

  9. Krystal
