Product Review: Quick FX Pimple Eraser

Sunday, September 30, 2012

     Hi dearies! Today I want to share my thoughts on this cheap and effective product that I dared to try hoping that it will help me lighten up dark marks on my face caused by pimples. I saw this at Watson's months ago and I'm a bit skeptical if this product will work. Whenever I shop for my toiletries, my eyes were glued on this but I always resists the urge thinking that it will not work because it's cheap and never heard of the brand before. If I'm not mistaken, I attempted to put this on my shopping basket more than five times and when I'm going to pay for it, I will just leave it on the counter or inside my shopping basket thinking that it's just a waste of money if I'll purchase it. 

     So when my skin was acting up last month, I decided to take extra care of it by adding spot treatments. I searched for a zit zapper and I found a good one here. Pimples will leave a mark or post pigmentation that will eventually lighten up on it's own but it will take more than a month or longer depending on our skin's ability to regenerate. But for some individuals like me who have fair skin, this dark marks or blemishes look very unsightly. I can use a concealer to hide those marks and a heavy duty concealer that is pretty expensive will do the job. Since I'm a cheapskate, I'll look for another alternative. 

     I have no choice but to brave myself and try this Quick FX pimple eraser that I've been tempting to buy at Watsons long time ago. Well, I think my curiosity paid off :D Even if I'm thinking of the worst (negative reaction of my skin to the product) during my first application, my fingers were crossed and I patiently waited for the result. I can't assure you that this product works 100% but at least, I saw some changes and still hoping that it will lighten my blemishes more after using it for a longer period of time.  
Quick FX Pimple Eraser
helps dry up pimples, helps diminish and reduce dark spots due to scarring, helps protect the skin against the sun
  • With Glycolic Acid that rejuvenates and evens out skin tone. It also clears pores by removing old and dead skin, exposing healthy skin cells underneath.
  • With Salicylic Acid that helps prevent and treat pimples. It also clear out blemishes, fine lines and dark spots.
  • With Zinc Oxide that helps control inflammations and relieves the skin against irritation and rash. It also helps provide superior protection against the harmful rays of the sun.
  • With Vitamin C that helps protect against UVB rays and can help combat sun damage. It also decreases wrinkles and lightens pigmented skin.
  • With Niacinamide that helps lighten dark spot. It also helps in the treatment of acne.
Quick FX Pimple Eraser
Thick consistency so a little goes a long way.
size: 10g

price: 49.75 php (Around $1.00+)

place bought: Watsons Sm Fairview

instructions for use: Gently apply on area affected by pimples. Apply two times a daily, morning and night.

ingredients: Aqua, Mineral Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol (and) Ceteareth-20, Zinc Oxide, Isopropyl Myristate, Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycolic Acid, Niacinamide, Methylisothiazolinone and Chlorphenesin, Salicylic Acid, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid.

What I like:
  • The price is a steal! It's cheap compared to other whitening spot treatment in the market.
  • Unscented.
  • No allergic reaction, breakouts or whatsoever.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Contains 5 active ingredients that performs different function to combat skin imperfections.
  • I noticed that some pimple marks lightened after three weeks of religious application.
  • There's a bit of peeling on newly dried pimple and post acne scar.
  • Batch, manufacturing and expiration date is stamped on the packaging.
What I don't like:
  • The packaging- you have to transfer the product into a small pot container. I think it's more convenient to use if they place the product in a tube-type container.
  • Takes a little time and effort to absorb. 
Will I repurchase? Yes!

Recommendation:
     I give this a 4.25 4.75/5 rating. I use this together with Celeteque Acne Spot Corrector Gel and with patience of applying both product day and night, I can say that there's an improvement on the size and intensity of blemishes and dark spots on my face. This cream does not produce significant results overnight so be patient and apply it religiously. If you have spare time, you can apply the product more than twice like what I do to speed up the lightening process. Make sure you do a patch test before applying the product. It contains mineral oil so to those allergic to it just skip this.

     Do you use spot treatment cream to lighten pimple marks? Thanks for sharing!


Good Times!~

  1. oh gosh. I also had this kind of weird encounter with Quick FX at Watson's. There's really something about the product that's calling for you to purchase, but you just can't decide! :D I ended up buying the tinted moisturizer but it didn't work well for me. So maybe I'll buy the pimple eraser next time :))

  2. Currently using Pimple Clear Facial Toner (sold exclusively at Watsons too).

    So far so good. Give it a shot.

  3. good review! might try it soon.

  4. I saw this too on Watson but was quite hesitant on trying it kasi sa sachet sya mejo mahirap kasi need mu pa itransfer sa ibang container which might cause contamination... I just hope they change the packaging. But great review! thanks for sharing ^_~

    ReplyDelete
  5. @Harmony Valdoz- Ang weird noh? I also experienced this feeling sa ibang products. I'm sorry if the tinted moisturizer didn't work, hiyangan talaga lahat ng products :(

    @Rae- Thanks for the recos, will try that soon. Mabuti ok syo :D

    @beestows- Thanks, yes try it and share your experience dear.

    @Janet- Hello Janet,, oo nga hassle talaga sana ma change yung packaging para din sa ikagaganda ng product nila.

  9. Nid b tlga itranstfer ang fx pimple eraser?

  10. wow. so im not the only one with the same experience. i think what's catchy about dis product other than the huge letterings, is that the completeness of the description on the packaging. it has all the effects a person needs, for pimples, dark spots, and protection from the sun. also the descriptions at the back looks very factual. for me this also gets a rating of 5. and i highly recommend it.and yeah they should change the packaging, but i do not transfer it to another container i just roll it down and secure it with a bobby pin afraid it will be contaminated. HAHA being OC. that's all. (first time to comment on a blog :D)

    ** i was on watson a while ago, to buy this product and its out of stock! first time it happened to me, so i guess people are finally discovering its wonders :D
    (that's how i get here. i am looking where to buy other than watson)

  11. @E- Hello there! Thank you for sharing your experience with QUICK FX. I'm using this until now. If I'm not mistaken, I already consumed 6 packs of this. I know it's only sold in Watsons. Siguro if there's a Watsons branch that is not mall based you can check it there. Meron kasi Watsons near us na madaming QUICK FX since the store is located sa bayan lang. Hope this helps :D

  12. When you said you've reviewed it, I had to look for it. Lo and behold I see my comment there. I don't see too many reviews of this. You're one of the few I've read na pala.

    ReplyDelete
  13. @Rae- Hello :) I'm sorry if you have to look for it. Nakalimutan ko pala ilagay yung link sa comment ko :( are you looking for a pimple eraser? Give this a try :) If ever naman di ka satisfied sa results, the price will not break the bank.

  14. Hi there. I bought one yesterday and Im not sure how to properly use it. Do I need to rinse it after applying it or kailangan sha ibabad overnight? It wasn't in the instruction kasi e. Thank you! :))

    ReplyDelete
  15. @Anonymous- no need to rinse. use it as spot treatment. apply it until fully absorbed.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hi there im not sure how to use it do i need to rub it? thanks

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Anonymous- Hi There :) Apply a little amount on pimples or dark marks then rub gently until fully absorbed.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hi! How do you use this with the celeteque spot corrector please? Do you use one over the other or something? :D

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Anonymous- Hello :) I use the celeteque spot corrector gel more on cystic pimples and pimple that's very red, painful and with nodules (pus). While I use Quick FX pimple eraser for dried up zits and dark spots. This is sort of dark spot corrector for me. I think you can't put them both kasi you have to address muna existing pimples with one spot treatment and when it's healing you can put another of the same or different kind.

  20. Hello! I've been using QUICK FX pimple eraser for 2weeks already and all I can say is it works perfectly well on me! I have problems with pimples coz whenever I have one, it stays on my face for days! And it's annoying, especially when you're not used to it.. I have already tried a variety of facial soaps pero wala pa rin.. I was at Watson one time and I saw this product.. The name is very catchy, and the price as well, it's 49.00 here in our place.. I also love the packaging, (yung may tube na).. First time ko pa lang guamit, umepekto na kaagad.. Pag feeling ko may tutubong pimple na naman, linalagyan ko ka'gad nito, di na xa lumalaki.. Bumalik ka'gad ako sa watson para bumili ng marami, kaso pagbalik ko, isa nalang yung available.. :-( Yung mga acne scars ko nga pala, nag li-lighten na xa.. :-) basta effective talaga..

  21. @Mae Tagarao- Hello dear :) I'm glad na effective sayo yung product :) Thanks for sharing your experience!

  22. Hi! may i ask, I just want to know if you've tried using NIVEA SPARKLING WHITE OIL AND ACNE CONTROL FACIAL FOAM? and is it okay to use it as a cleanser then apply the Quick FX Pimple Eraser? please reply! Thank you so much

    ReplyDelete
  23. And how will you know if effective yung product? kase yung iba sabi nila it's alright kase pag dumami it just means nilalabas nya yung dirt then mawawala.. I'm so confused. -nik here by the way :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. @Anonymous (nik)- Haven't tried those products from Nivea. You'll know na hindi effective sayo yung product if after 2 weeks hindi pa din nagsusubside yung purging stage. It also depends on your skin. Some kasi inaabot ng months bago nila masabi kung effective hindi. Finding the right skin care product for you is always trial and error din.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi! I am using this for a week and i can say its really effective!! Marami nakapansin naglighten daw face ko at wala na maxado pimples. Overnight lang pagkabukas lumiliit na xa. Bsta religiously lang ang paggamit. :) thumbs up!!:D

    ReplyDelete
  26. @Jjj- Wow! I'm glad that it worked for you :) Thank you so much for sharing your experience ^_^

  27. Is there any side effects to those who have sensitive skin like me?I just started to use the quick fx pimple eraser, been trying hard a lot of products but each time I use them, my face experience a lot of breakouts. It's annoying. I sometimes lose self confidence.^^ Thanke

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Abby Ayala- unfortunately yes, if you have very sensitive skin madami ka dapat i consider before using a new product or adding a new product on your skin care regimen. Since you just started using this product, be cautious of negative effects once you see it stop using the product na. Don't lose your confidence sis, we are all beautiful!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Will try this soon since I'm starting to love quick fx's products. i have tried eyelift cream and their no-shine mattifier. I love them both and I double the no-shine mattifier as my primer. It's cheap but effective!

    ReplyDelete
  30. i think this gonna solve my son problem regarding his pimples,teean agers are really conscious on their face,mayroon po ba ito bigger size?

    ReplyDelete
  31. This doesn't work for me sadly. But I like that they upgraded the sachet :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. @itmefati- good to know na effective sayo both. haven't tried it though. hope this will work for you.

    ReplyDelete
  53. @Leilani Gamboa- try this dear, wow effective sayo yung eyelift cream? naiintriga naman ako nyan. hehehe

    @Anonymous- hello there, thanks for sharing your story. Lahat naman ng pimples pag hindi pa dry mapula talaga kahit ano pa yung cream na gamitin mo. this one is used to flatten the pimple area pero nandun pa din yung redness nya. if the pimple is going to dry up na medyo nawawala na yung redness tapos papalit na yung nagiging dark color na.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Thanks for the information what a great review. I will have to try it out myself.

    ReplyDelete
  64. This seems like a pretty awesome product! I know I sure could use it. But the packaging would be a turn off for me. Give me a pot or tub & I'd be a happy gal.

    ReplyDelete
  65. That is just too cheap, lol. I haven't seen that in Watsons before though. I should give it a try next time I visit.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Wow! A pimple eraser.. I need something like this for my sons . I wish it was available here in the US.
    Great review!

  68. I will have to pass this on to my girlfriend to try out. Plus my kids are on the verge of being teens so they will be needing products like this soon enough.

  69. I need to test this out asap - Great review

    ReplyDelete
  70. This sounds like a great product. I wonder where they distribute to around the world? Any ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Does seem like a great price point. I like that it has vitamin C too!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Looks like a great product, I don't have a problem with pimples though luckily.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Sometimes, inexpensive products can do a better job than their fancy alternatives. Good for you that it helped.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I don't have problems with pimples, but I would like to find a product that covers or gets rid of wholes in your face from acne problems. That's what I have and I hate them. I have dreamed about smooth skin all my life. What I wouldn't give to have it, but not having a whole lot of money is a problem too cuz it would cost mega bucks too! :(

    ReplyDelete
  75. Great review. I agree that it would be easier to use if it were in a tube. However, I'm sure the price is so low because they don't package it in something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Good to know there is something this inexpensive that works. My skin is very fair and I have a lot of dark sun/age spots. Thanks for letting me know about this product.

    ReplyDelete
  77. My daughter is a teen and she's always looking for something effective for the breakouts she gets. Luckily she only gets them now and again.

    ReplyDelete
  78. My skin is really sensitive to washes and creams, but this is def what I need, I'll have to look for something like this that I can buy.

    ReplyDelete
  79. looks like a great product! will take this in mind whenever i had pimples again in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  80. i rarely have a pimple though my face is already full of dark spots from a skin condition i have. lucky you got this thing in a cheap price

    ReplyDelete
  81. It is alIsnt it great when you a find a product that works for you. This is worth a try.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I usually use just a mild soap and haven't had many breakouts. Another thing I have been using is a coconut oil based vegan soap that works very well. This does, however, sound like a fantastic product!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Glad to hear it worked well for you. I will have to look into something like this as I do have marks from pimples as well.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Hi! I use both product you posted,.
    I just dunno how you used them like do you apply them at the same time?
    I'm worried this past month since July I started having pimples more than I used to. I thought it's just bcos of weather change then I saw a video from YouTube saying July is acne awareness month or something.

    ReplyDelete
  85. This product is really effective! I applied it in the morning, then another overnight and I woke up with dried up and smaller pimples. :) I'm on my third day now and half a number of my pimples were already gone! Must try product! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  86. This product made my pimples smaller and less red in just two days (I apply twice a day, in the morning and at night). Effective. :)

    Glad to know that this also lightens up dark marks as it is now what I'm trying to address.
