Product Review: ACNE CARE Lactoferrin Anti-Acne Complex

Saturday, January 19, 2013

     Hi dearies, how's your weekend so far? Mine still has the paralyzed lazy body feeling from this cold weather. But there's another factor causing this but I'm still unsure if this is the right time to tell you. I'l just let you know if it's confirmed :) Now back to my post, this is a long overdue review since I already finished 3 bottles of this supplement last year. Our friends from Vida Nutri Science Inc. sent me this product for feature and I was intrigued with the benefits. Who doesn't want a pimple free skin? Since this is an organic supplement I decided to give it a shot and see the significant effect on my pimple prone and blemished skin. Here's a brief description of the supplement.

AcneCare Fight Pimples from the Inside Naturally

     Comprises of a proprietary blend that derives a bioactive complex rich Lactoferrin , Linumlife and zinc gluconate. AcneCare is based on milk's many bioactive components with specific physiological effects to support the reduction of blemishes and redness associated with a bad complexion. The most essential mechanisms are the anti-microbial, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to help promote a healthy complexion from the inside.


• Clinically proven against Acne.

• Helps you get rid of acne, red spots and blemishes.

• Also works for body acne and adult acne.
• Promotes and maintains healthy skin and clear complexion.


AcneCare contains 3 Anti- Acne Complex:

Lactoferrin- Lactoferrin plays a supportive role in nourishing the skin from the inside through three mechanisms: anti-microbial (enhances the body's natural defenses against bacteria), anti-inflammatory (helps assist reduction in redness associated with a poor complexion), and antioxidant (helps aid the repair of damaged skin cells from blemishes.

Linumlife



LinumLife Complex provides lignans from Flax, a well-recognized group of phytoestrogens with estrogenic and anti-estrogenic action, which helps in the treatment of acne. Produced through a proprietary process, LinumLife Complex is concentrated and provides between 10 to 30 times more lignans than whole flax or other flax ingredients.


Zinc facilitates the production and regulation of about 200 hormones in your body, and one of that is testosterone. It is known that testosterone is one of the main promoters of acne. Intake of zinc may prevent potential hormone imbalances that can lead to outbreaks.
Zinc is also closely involved in protein synthesis and in collagen formation in your body, both of which are essential in the maintenance of healthy skin and in normalizing production of skin oils. Zinc can help heal your blemishes, reduce the inflammation, and reduce the androgenic effect of hormones on your skin.

ACNE CARE Lactoferrin Anti-Acne Complex


ACNE CARE Lactoferrin Anti-Acne Complex
size: 30 capsules/bottle good for 2 weeks use

price: 885 php (Around $21.00+)

place bought: free 
Available at all leading Mercury Drug, Watsons and Southstar Drugstore

instruction for use: Take 1 capsule every morning and evening (2 daily) or as directed by a healthcare professional.

ingredients: PER CAPSULE- Lactoferrin 100mg, Linumlife Extra 25mg, Zinc Gluconate 6.4mg

What I like:
  • It's organic.
  • It's odorless.
  • Capsule size is easy to swallow.
  • No negative reactions or whatsoever.
  • During the time I'm taking this supplement, my skin felt soft and smooth and less oily.
  • It helped me lessen my cystic pimples during my period.
What I don't like:
  • The price can be a bit steep for teenagers specially on their adolescence stage because this is the time where breakouts begin. If they will maintain this supplement, it will cost them around 1,800+ for a months supply. I'm sure moms will skip this and let them cure acne breakouts through topical ointments.
Will I repurchase? Yes, it's in the realm of possibility.

Recommendation:
     I give this a 4/5 rating. This is my first time taking an anti acne supplement and I'm impressed even thought it didn't gave me the kinis (smooth) skin that I wanted to achieve. It still helped me though in managing breakouts during my period. The products they sent me are good for 1 and a half month supply so I guess it will take months before I see the maximum result. Maybe taking it religiously for 3 months will totally heal existing blemishes and prevent future breakouts. But if given a chance, I will take this supplement again since this is organic and doesn't contain harmful chemicals. 

     Have you tried taking medicines or supplements to combat acne breakouts or skin imperfections before? Please share your experiences. Thank you so much!!!

Good Times!~

  2. @Anonymous- Hello, yes boys can take this supplement also. But on the estrogen and testosterone part, I'm not sure about the effect. Since this is labelled as "Supplement" with a caution of "No therapeutic effect" please consider consulting your doctor first before taking it. :)

  7. @Anonymous- 3 bottles will be consumed for 1 and half months. Good for 15 days yung 1 bottle. to be taken twice a day.

    @Anonymous- hello, since we have different skin needs and your hormones is different from mine, I cannot say that this will be 100% effective to you. There's no harm in trying since this product is natural. I suggest you try taking oral pills to see the effects. It's always trial and error din like sa skin care. Thanks

    1. I suggest you take those supplements with an interval for safety reasons. Maybe 1 to 2hrs apart. Much best if you consult the doctor about it. We never know if both supplements will hinder each others effect.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If your pimple is caused by hormonal changes I suggest you take pills with high estrogen like Diane 35 (Baxter). There is also a counterpart local brand (Trust) which is a lot cheaper. Diane 35 is a pill intended and marketed for young adolescents with acne problem.

      Regarding with its adverse effect when you are taking this supplement with your existing pills. That, you should consult with your doctor or gynecologist.

      Please take note that this is just a supplement and should be taken with precaution as this supplement might interact with your medications. There is still no study about its side effects and therapeutic potency that is why it is labeled as "No Therapeutic Claim".

  32. I am always searching ways to cure my acne. I even search about pcos coz i am also thinking if that is also my problem considering its signs and symptoms and one of which is i have an irregular menstruation. Yet, i did not tried consulting this to a specialist. I overheard about acnecare and i want to make a try, Is it fine without consulting the doctor? Just simply buy it over the counter?

    1. Hi Nikita,

      Thank you so much for visiting and taking time to read my blog. Because you have a medical condition like that (pcos), it's better to consult a medical professional first before taking any kind of supplement.

      You can take this naman if you think na mag-breakouts ka once you go off pill. It's a natural supplement naman so I guess you have nothing to worry about taking this.

    1. Hi,

      The results depends on the severity of pimples. Have you tried consulting a dermatologist before? This supplement kasi is intended for mild to moderate acne. If more than three weeks mo na take yung supplement then wala pa din effect, you need to visit a derma na para malaman mo yung cause. Pwede kasi hormonal din if you're a girl.

      Delete
  39. hello, just want to ask if its okay na may gumagamit din ako ng multivitamins maliban dito? and natural lang ba na maglalabasan talaga mga pimples mo sa unang paggamit mo nito? thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi,

      Yes okay naman uminom ng multivitamins habang nag-take ka nito. Yung iba kasi tinatawag nila ng 'purging stage' kung saan nilalabas ng gamot yung pimples kaya sa iba ang effect mglalabasan muna tapos saka sila mawawala.

      It's possible na hindi ka hiyang sa sabon or pwede rin sa purging stage ka pa. Pero kung hindi na okay sayo, better stop using it na.

    1. Hi Rupert,

      Yes, it's over the counter lang kasi and it's a food supplement. Hindi po ito gamot. Pero kung need ng medical advise, need mo din mag-ask ng opinion sa dermatologist.
