Product Review: AcneCare Acne Drying Lotion

Thursday, April 28, 2016

     Looks like there's another pimple and zit buster in town. Vida Nutriscience Inc., the makers of AcneCare Capsule and AcneCare Soap made their own version of Mario Badescu Drying Lotion but for a fraction of the cost. Last year, (yes, this is a long overdue post) Vida Nutriscience Inc. sent me the newest addition to their anti-acne skin care product line to try. I received boxes of AcneCare soap which I will just give a short shout out in this post as I haven't use a bar until now.

     This post will mainly focus on AcneCare Acne Drying Lotion which I presume that is receiving positive reviews from other bloggers who have tried it. I've been using this product once a month, pre-menstrual or post-menstrual period where one or two cystic pimples appear either on my chin or cheeks. So without further ado, here is my honest to goodness review of AcneCare Acne Drying Lotion.
Product Review: AcneCare Acne Drying Lotion
     AcneCare Drying Lotion is a fast acting, effective acne spot solution for all skin types. Here are the key ingredients:

  • Zinc Oxide- It helps clear up acneic skin due to sun's UV rays, pollution, harsh weather, dry air, bacteria, viruses, chemicals in personal care products, poor diet, stress, and lack of exercise can all damage skin on a daily basis.
  • Titanium Dioxide- An active ingredient that is used as coloring agent, whitener, thickening agent, and sunscreen.

Use a cotton bud to get the pink sediment.

L- small pimple, it's already on the 'hinog' stage.
R- how it looks like after application of AcneCare Acne Drying Lotion.
What I like:

  • The price is very affordable if I'll do the math because I only need a little amount to cover my zit/s.
  • A little amount goes a long way.
  • There's a minty and cooling sensation once the product is applied on my angry, reddish, and painful zit.
  • Doesn't burn or peel the site where I applied it.
  • Dries quickly upon application.
  • It can dry up small pimple overnight.
  • There's a minty and cooling sensation that I felt upon application. It's soothing and can calm redness.
  • No further irritation, breakouts, or whatsoever.
  • Batch, manufacturing, expiration date printed on the bottle.
  • Easily accessible.

What I don't like:

  • The packaging is flimsy.
  • I wish it's in a more decent bottle packaging.
  • Always OOS. (out of stock)
  • There's a herbalish scent that my nose can't tolerate.

Will I repurchase? Yes, but not for now as I still have a back-up bottle in my stash.

Recommendations:
     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. This is a bit tedious to apply because you have to shake it, get a cotton bud and apply the pink sediment to your pimple/s. I highly recommend this product because it really works. For small pimples it will take overnight but for those with moderate case, it takes two to three days in my experience before the pimple/s shrink in size and totally dry itself.

     Even though the recommended dose of application is once a day, I apply it twice especially if the pimple is big and painful. What you need to do if you're just staying at home is apply this after bath and after washing your face at night before bedtime.

  2. Good review! Though, you're not supposed to shake it. :) You're supposed to dip the cotton bud into the pink sediment at the bottom. (Just like how the Mario Badescu one is used. Don't shake.) :)

    1. Hi,

      Thanks for the kind words. Yup, I'll edit my post. At first kasi I shake it. Then I discovered to dip the cotton buds to the pink sediment na after the fist week of use.

    1. Hi,

      Kung nasa bahay ka lang naman pwede naman i-apply sa morning basta di ka pag-papawisan sa face kasi maaalis agad yung pink sediment.

    1. Hi,

      Usually mga topical ointments and some says laser treatments daw will lessen the scar. Try contractubex for the ointment kasi yun pa lang ang na-try ko.

    1. Hello,

      It depends kung gaano kadami yung i-aaply mo. Pero madali naman matanggal using warm water and soap.

    1. Hi,

      Since I'm not prone to acne now, iba na nag beauty regimen ko. I change skin care products most of the time kasi I need to review but still stick to what my skin loves. For acne prone skin I presume you have oily face or combination, try using mild facial wash or cleanser. Tapos use toner yung Eskinol na calamansi okay din. Then yung moisturizer should be oil-free. Dapat gel type. Use face mask, kung may makikita ka na charcoal or bamboo something mas okay.

    1. Hi Rjay,

      If moderate yung case ng acne, dapat soap, lotion, and supplement talaga ang combination. Pero kung ilang piraso ng pimples lang, pang spot treatment kasi ang acne care lotion. Yung soap is for maintenance.
