TFS Clean Face White Post-Acne Nighttime Spot Eraser Review

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.

before (May):
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!

  6. thanks hun!! XD looks like it is quite effective!!if your spots are 90% gone by the time you finish the tube you may not even need to buy other products ^___^I want to get my hands on this to get rid of the spots on my chin=/

  7. Hey G, I'm so glad you did this review. After reading it, it sounds like it won't work on my sensitive skin. My wallet thanks you!

    Ooh, I wonder what's brewing? :)

  8. Oh I need something like this for my spots. If I see it I might pick it up. Did you get any dryness or sensitivity while using it?
