A popular product from The Face Shop, oftentimes, its out of stock, so when I spotted it in a store during one of my TFS leisure sprees, I grabbed one right away as I have some "spots" to "erase". Some readers have been curious if it really works so I took a photo of my target spots before using it to show the difference.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Contains arbutin to fade post-acne marks and triclosan which inhibits the proliferation of acne bacteria. Its skin lipid complex strengthens skin’s natural protective function for faster repair of damaged tissue.
after a month (June):
I apologize for the different quality and lighting of the pictures, the before photo was taken at night and the latter during daytime. I hope you can still see the difference. A little more exfoliation will help totally erase those stubborn spots. I can't wait to have a spot-less face! (well, except for my 6 beauty marks aka moles.) :)
HOW TO USE: Apply (only) to acne scars/ dark spots after skin care. Please note that I also use Paul & Joe's Whitening serum as part of my skin care regimen.
HOW IT FEELS: It's a thick cream, which may cause a stinging sensation if you have very dry or sensitive skin.
✪ hygienic tube packaging, which is also good if you travel.
✪ no heavy scent/fragrance
✪ if pimple/acne is still in its healing phase, using this will reduce redness in the area
✪ reasonably priced considering the amount of product you will get (Php795 or $17 for a 15ml. tube)
✪ you will notice minimal fading of spots in a week's use
✪ it can be hard to find because its always sold out
✪ it did not completely erase the spots in one month, so it can take a long while to totally eradicate the spots.
REPURCHASE? No, because there are more products to try out there!
This review is dedicated to Ehlee, sorry it took a long while hon! I hope you still find it helpful. :)
PS. I have something brewing... Stay tuned for the next post!
