The Spot Dabber is an excellent solution for individuals with acne-prone skin as it helps to calm, cleanse and refine pores. Formulated with aloe vera, witch hazel and xanthan gum, it creates a soothing gel base that is infused with tea tree and lavender oils known for their purifying properties. This gentle product is specifically designed to address the needs of problem skin.

Moreover, the Spot Dabber acts as a soothing astringent that effectively purifies and balances the skin, helping to control excess oil and minimizing the appearance of blemishes. It also aids in calming redness and reducing irritation, making it a perfect addition to any acne skincare routine.

Bottle Return

The beauty industry contributes significantly to the global plastic waste crisis, with staggering statistics highlighting its environmental impact. According to a report by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the beauty industry produces over 120 billion units of packaging annually. Shockingly, the majority of these packages end up in landfills or oceans, with only a fraction being recycled. Moreover, a study by Zero Waste Europe reveals that plastic packaging accounts for nearly 70% of total plastic waste generated by the beauty sector. This excessive reliance on plastic packaging not only contributes to pollution but also perpetuates the cycle of single-use plastics, exacerbating environmental degradation and harming marine life.

As a product-based business, it is our responsibility to do what we can to prevent waste and harm to the planet. One of the ways we can lower our impact is to offer a bottle return program to our customers. At Cocoon, we opt for glass packaging for our products due to its sustainability compared to plastic. Glass remains inert and impermeable, releasing no harmful chemicals when exposed to heat or sunlight and it is easily sanitized for reuse without degradation. This is why we are able to offer a packaging return program that allows us to repurchase bottles from our customers in order to  sanitize and reuse them. Additionally, we collect pumps and send them to a third party recycling company that specializes in cosmetics.  Our goal is to be as circular as possible.

How it works:

Bottles and pumps can be returned to our two locations in Kitchener (Store and Spa) as well as participating retailers:

Ecowell - Mount Forest, Ontario

Truth Beauty Co - Waterloo, Ontario

We will also provide a mailing label if you have 10 or more bottles to send us. Please contact us at to arrange a return.

Different formula?

It seems stronger than before? Overwhelming smell.

Hello Laurel, Thank you for your review and message about the Spot Dabber. There has not been any change to the formula, but there can be differences in the ingredient batches that may have varying scents. We are sorry you find the smell of the product overwhelming. Christine Cocoon Apothecary

Great for helping to diminish acne breakouts!

I have purchased this "Spot Dabber" quite a few times for my post-menopausal acne treatment. I still can't believe I have breakouts at my age, but this is a great treatment for those pesky pimples. With repeated use, this products works to diminish them. I will continue to purchase this great, natural product!

Spot Dabber for Acne

It is not working as well as it had when I'd used it in the past.

Too Soon to Tell

I bought this at the tail end of a breakout. Haven't used it a ton yet so tough to say how effective it is overall, but when I did use it, it seemed to dry out the blemish. It is really runny, drips out quickly and is very scented. If you're like me and have lots of hormonal breakouts on the chin/around the lip area, I would suggest dabbing the ball onto your finger and applying the product with your finger. I got it in my mouth the first few times I used it - totally my fault, just a suggestion for application!

Works well and quickly.

My teen has started to develop some pimples along her hairline. Within days of starting to use this, there was noticeable improvement.

Natural Skin Solution

I have only used the spot dabbed a couple of times since I purchased it but each time it has calmed the skin around a blemish and reduced the appearance of the blemish. It feels nice on as well, no stinging or burning. Fair warning the smell is strong.

Spot dabber

This is great to keep in my purse to dab on to keep the Maskne at bay. It dries out the spots that are breaking out without drying the rest of my skin.
