RESQ Anti-Blemish Complex

NZD $48.00


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

A unique clearing complex, containing a blend of Salicylic Acid, Zinc, and Kaolin, which gently dissolves the ‘glue’ between dead skin cells, decongesting pores and eliminating bacteria. NZ Hibiscus extract gently lightens, rapidly revealing brighter, clearer skin.

Daily Ritual: Apply directly to the affected area with a cotton tip onto clean skin and leave to dry. Use daily, morning to night, as required.

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


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

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

Many anti-blemish products only target one or two of these factors, so it was important to create a treatment that addressed all four within one product.

As a result, this fast-acting formula gets right to the source of your pimples, papules, and pustules, which can occur not only on your face, but also on the neck, chest, and back. Salicylic Acid and Sulfur – natural keratolytic ingredients, clear the lining of the pore, neutralising the bacteria responsible for breakouts.

Note: Please don’t shake the bottle – if you do, leave it standing overnight and the lotion will settle.

Skin Health Benefits

  • decongests the pore-lining; flushing out dead cells and debris
  • dries up breakouts and balances sebum production on the skin’s surface
  • a natural keratolytic, it peels away dead skin cells to reveal unblemished skin
  • a natural antiseptic, astringent, and antimicrobial, it clears the bacteria from the pores that lead to acne


Salicylic Acid: Works on the uppermost layer of your skin, gently dissolving “glue” between dead skin cells to exfoliate and remove debris trapped in the pore.
Hibiscus extract: A natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids specifically malic and citric acid, gently exfoliates, lifting hyperpigmentation and improving skin clarity.
Sulfur: A natural exfoliant that is widely used to treat irritated, blemished skin. It works as a descaling agent, breaking down keratin (hardened) skin.
Kaolin: When charged in water it acts as a sponge and is capable of binding heavy metal toxins from the skin’s surface – drawing impurities from the skin, to balance oil production, and gently restore a skin damaged by acne breakouts.
Zinc Oxide: A natural mineral that provides oil control by absorbing excess sebum on the skin.

    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.

      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
