pimple treatment

Product Review: Natura Organics Emergency Ex-Zit Gel

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

     Hello dearies! I will not make a very long introduction to this wonderful product that was sent to me by Natura Organics months ago to try and see if this will make nasty pimple exit or go away. The name of this pimple gel says it all. It's a remedy for this kind of emergency where a pimple or zit is going to pop up a day or two before your big day. It's so frustrating that an angry, reddish, and humongous pimple is threatening to ruin your first date, your photo shoot, or presentation because it wants to show up in your face.

     This is my third pimple spot treatment to date. I don't have flawless skin, I have freckles and I often get a zit or two before, during, and after my monthly period. When I was in college I have this bad habit of pricking those nasty zits on my cheeks and chin where they always pop out if the size is still the same after a week. Thank goodness that pimple gels and pimple spot corrector were invented, no more popping just apply a dot and see the magic work if the brand you have in hand is effective but if not, nothing will happen overnight or after three days. Scroll down to see my experience about Natura Organics Emergency Ex-Zit Gel :)
Product Review: Natura Organics Emergency Ex-Zit Gel
     When it comes to over-the-counter acne products, you end up with a lot of the same ingredients, over and over: benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, witch hazel, charcoal, and (sometimes) retinoids. Yawn. The problem is, acne is caused by a bacterium, P. acnes. Like all bacteria, P. acnes exhibits bacterial resistance. Over time, “only the strongest survive.” Your acne treatment may kill 95% of the bacterial colonies, but a small percentage will mutate and survive. These resilient bacteria will reproduce — which is why effective agents in EMERGENCY EX-ZIT GEL is formulated.

     Below is a proof that Natura Organics Emergency Ex-Zit Gel is an effective pimple spot treatment. I apply this gel thrice or four times a day and after two days, the pimple has subsided then totally healed after four days. All healed. The only problem I have is dark spot cause by the zit.

What I like:

  • The price is  super affordable for a 20 g of product! 
  • This pimple gel can pass as unscented.
  • There's a plastic lid on top of cover. I accidentally drop this tub and the lid prevented the gel from transferring to the cover.
  • It's gel-type in nature but a bit runny.
  • 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.
  • This gel reduced the size of my pimple overnight.
  • After 2 days, the pimple has dried up.

What I don't like:

  • The packaging is flimsy.
  • The product is in a container without spatula. It would be great if this product is packaged in a plastic tube with nozzle tip for ease of use since all I need is a spot- dot size amount in treating pimples. I will just use my fingers or cotton buds to spread the product on my pimple/s.
  • No ingredients list printed on the package.
  • No batch, manufacturing, and expiry date.
  • Not easily accessible.

Will I repurchase? Yes! But not for now since I still have a tub to finish but this one is back-up worthy!

     I give this a 4.5/5 rating. If you're eager to really make your pimple/s gone in less than two days, make sure to use it more than twice a day. Religious application will make heal pimple/s faster. Since I'm always at home I make sure to apply a thin layer three or four times a day. I'm totally surprised when I woke up the next day because swelling, redness, and size of my pimples had been reduced then after two days it's gone already. If there's a sign that a new pimple is coming out, I immediately apply this gel and voila! I can bid my pimples goodbye :D

Do you use spot corrector treatment for your pimple/s? 

Good Times!~

Product Review: Belo Essentials AcnePro 3-Step Clear Skin System

Monday, September 15, 2014

     Even though I have fair skin, I still worry every month about The Pimpy attack! Pimpy the pimple is always present every month usually a week before my period. Sometimes he's very red and angry while most of the time he looks like a volcano that will explode anytime. I don't want to describe pimpy literally, I know it's yucky but this is the real thing. Sometime pimpy and the gang or pimpies cannot contain their excitement, they pop here there and everywhere especially on my forehead and chin. I feel irritated when I see them full blast on a day where I have to attend an important event or occasion. Because I always resort to makeup and concealer to hide them, they just stay on my face and takes time to dry. They also leave dark marks on my face. To tell you the truth, I haven't found the right skin care product that will make pimpies go away.

     So when Belo Essentials sent me their Belo Essentials AcnePro 3-Step Clear Skin System, I said to myself that finally I'll use a skin care system that is made by one of the most trusted brand in the country today and hopefully I'll say #GoodbyePimpy! I'm so excited to share with you the results after two weeks of using the entire set. Click CONTINUE READING to know more about the product and see how I take over my pimpies in just two weeks :)

Product Review: Milea Mineral Makeup Propolis Concealer

Sunday, December 29, 2013

     Concealers, one of the best I've been breaking out day savior! Almost all of the women I know had their share of breakouts, big or small. It can make or break your day if you don't know to hide them. To conceal stubborn pimples, one needs a heavy duty concealer that will erase or hide them instantly. But what about concealers that have added skin benefits? Like healing and concealing nasty zits at the same time, genius eh?! I think everyone would love to conceal and heal their pimples using a single product, right? In my quest of finding the right skin care and makeup products, healing concealers are among the last thing that I would consider buying because some of them contain ingredients that I'm allergic two. I also can't find the right brand aside from high-end ones. So to cut the story short, this kind of makeup sans skin care falls below the list of my must-haves not until Ms. Edilee of Milea Natural Beauty sent me their Propolis Concealer. I was very intrigued with the concealer and having second thoughts on my mind since this is the first organic concealer that I have to date. But this doubt was immediately erased on my mind because the first organic soaps that I love until now came from Milea. So there's an assurance that the product will work for me like that of my first love organic soaps and their lemongrass toner that I keep or purchasing one after the other.

     So enough of the blabber, here it is my honest to goodness review of Milea Propolis Concealer after using the product for almost three months now. I can attest to the positive effects of this product alone in gradually diminishing those minor pimples from breakouts and those starting to pop out. Click CONTINUE READING for details.

Product Review: b.liv Customized Skin Care System

Sunday, June 30, 2013

     Skin care is very important for me. I can skip makeup for a day but never for skin care. Even if I'm dead tired and sleepy, I really make sure to wash, tone and moisturize my face before hitting the sack. I don't have flawless skin. That's why I need to combat skin imperfections with good skin care products especially if the cause includes pollution, stress and hormonal imbalance. I've tried so many skin care products before, from the cheap to high end ones. Some will do the job in a week's time while others will just add another problem. There's no assurance that once you try a certain skin care product, the following day your skin imperfections are gone. If I found my HG (holy grail) product, I make sure to stick to it and avoid trying new ones. But over time, my skin becomes immune to the products I'm using that's why another journey on finding the right skin care product begins. I have one question to ask: 


     This is another concern that sometimes I consider when choosing the right skin care products for my skin type. Using skin care products from the whole system or line can be expensive and does not guarantee us with positive results. But some individuals prefer using the products from the entire system because they believe that consistency is the key. If you use and anti- aging products from a specific brand, your should use the facial wash, cream, toner, serum, eye cream and sunblock that's included in the whole skin care line. 

    What if you have different skin care problems and you want to address all using few skin care products? Fret not because now you can have a customized skin care routine that will address to your problems. When Ms. Josephine of b.liv skin care email me and asked me to try their products, I'm quiet hesitant because I haven't tried using combined products to aid my aging skin, hormonal acne and uneven skin tone. I usually treat them one by one. So when she lay out the products that I'll be using and the description of each, I'm somehow relieved about the side effects if ever if I'll start using this customized skin care from b.liv.

     To know more about b.liv, please visit their website here: b.liv by Cellnique You'll learn important skin care information and you can even score samples for free!!!

     So back to the review, after assessing my skin care condition almost 2 months ago Ms. Josephine customized my b.liv skin care products to use. Here it is, my honest to goodness review of b.liv skin care products for aging, large pores, uneven skin tone and blemished skin.

Sample Room Experience + First Haul for 2013

Saturday, January 19, 2013

     Happy weekend guys! We're fortunate that beauty comes in boxes now. I mean we can try beauty, skin care, wellness products and everything in between with these beauty subscription boxes. I presume that you all know these beauty boxes and had subscribe from them depending on your preferences. It boom last year around August if I'm not mistaken but I'm contemplating which box to get. The price ranges from 400-500 php for a month of subscription,  you'll get different variety of beauty and skin care items, some are samples while others are full-sized ones. 

     I've joined the club now! Finally got my first beauty product sample from Sample Room. I will not get into full details of SR since beauty bloggers already discussed everything on their blogs. I will just share my experience and how considerate they were because my first transaction from them was cancelled and it's my fault. I'm lucky that they'll going to return the first 70 points that I used and wasn't able to pay the shipping on time and totally forgot my order. I used my remaining points to purchase this...
My order comes in this eco friendly paper bag, sealed with SR sticker :)
     This is what I ordered from the remaining points that I have. I have read all the reviews from SR that's why I'm convinced that Gluta-C is effective in terms of lighten dark marks and spots. I'm not sure if I'll use this on my underarm, I'm planning to use a little of this on my freckles and I hope this will work there too.
Gluta-C Skin Whitening Gel- FULL SIZE 20ml
Only 25 points for this one, not bad eh?
     So now to my haul, basically these are products that I already use everyday. Nothing new except the Nichido Mineral Concealer that I will use as an eyeliner for my waterlines and the HBC Keratin Hot Oil Treatment that was always OOS. I was intrigued months ago why among the DIY hair care treatments from HBC this is always OOS. Now I can try this and see what's the rave about :) I also bought this top from a shop near our subdivision selling factory priced clothing from Lee and Jag. Got this for 50& off the tag! But it's to tight for me, I need to lose weight before I can wear this confidently.  The Tony Moly 7 Day Eyebrow Tattoo is the bomb!!! I will muse everything about it on my next post. I really LOVE LOVE it!!! It's the cheaper version of K-Palette (I guess) :D

     And by the way, the cutie bottle cap earrings was a gift from le sister on my birthday. She said she won in a giveaway and this was her prize from Hodge Podge. She's very shy to use this because of the word blogger written on it. Thank you so much Krystal! I'm also shy to wear this even if this is the craft that I love doing. I don't want others to misinterpret me wearing those earrings. But if I'm with blogger friends, I'll wear it because I'm sure they'll understand me 100%

     That's all for now. Drop a comment below if you have tried these products before. Have a great weekend ahead!

Good Times!~
