Feature: The Skin Specialist's Erase Laser

Friday, December 26, 2014

     Hello dearies! I know you're still on Christmas high after the parties, reunions and gathering that you've been. It's been a month of late nights for me as I'm finishing backlogs and running errands while experiencing holiday rush including shopping in between. I'm stressed lately and it shows how my skin looks like these past few days.

     My skin is acting up, zits are popping up on my chin and on my cheeks. I know that after a week, the redness and itchiness will subside but the post acne marks will remain. Since I have a fair skin, dark pimple marks are pretty obvious. Whitening skin care products will do the job but it takes a month or more before achieving maximum results. New year is just 5 days away and the only thing I know that will give an instant result in lightening pimple marks is the Erase Laser by The Skin Specialist. I'm so excited try this pigment lightening machine on my stubborn freckles and dark marks but for now let me share with you information about the first Erase Laser in the country brought to us by The Skin Specialist.

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. 

Quick FX Pimple Eraser
helps dry up pimples, helps diminish and reduce dark spots due to scarring, helps protect the skin against the sun
     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.

size: 10g

price: 49.75 php (Around $1.00+)

place bought: Watsons Sm Fairview

instructions for use: Gently apply on the area affected by pimples. Apply two times a day, 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 perform 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 the 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 to 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!

     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!~
