Last week, I received my orders from Sooper Beaute. One of the three things I ordered was this Pimple Away Solution. That time I had some pimple and acne problems so I thought it was just the perfect time to test it out.
On the label, it says it has:
- salicylic acid;
- manuka myrtle;
- azelaic acid; and
- lemon extract
So what good are these ingredients? That’s what we’re going to find out.
According to some sources, salicylic acid is used to fight acne. In addition, it cleans the surface of the skin and helps unclog pores. It is recommended to use regularly because once it’s stopped, pores will be clogged again and the acne will come back.
Manuka Myrtle, aka Leptospermum scoparium, aka tea tree. So it’s just tea tree after all! Oh well, Manuka Myrtle sounds fancy. 😀
Anyways, so Manuka Myrtle aka Leptospermum scoparium aka TEA TREE, penetrates the skin, unblocks our sebaceous glands, cleans and disinfects our pores.
This is used to remove the bumps, lesions, and swelling. It does not only treat acne, but also rosacea and flaky skin!
Lemon extract is a natural astringent that reduces oil and pushes it out of our skin. It also removes pimple marks and spots.
Apparently, all four ingredients mentioned above are absolutely essential to our problematic skin. Having all these ingredients will definitely clear up our skin and treat our acne problems.
In the photo, you can see the other ingredients in this solution. It contains:
- Deionized water – it means the water used has been removed of all its mineral ion like sodium, iron, copper, etc.
- Witch Hazel Extract – a natural acne treatment and removes excess oil on skin
- Vitamin B3 – helps reduce wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and hyperpigmentation; also helps heal acne
No wonder why my pimples actually dried up quite fast!
I decided to use this product for 5 straight days, before giving my final review. I skipped one day after my fourth, though, such a shame. But gladly, it did not have any bad effect.
So, here’s what went down:
Day 1 – two big pimples with pus and lesion above my left brow; one red and swollen pimple above my right brow; one on the left jaw; and one right below my right nostril
Day 2 – all pimples are starting to reduce in size; the one with pus had dried up, but all pimples still had bumps.
Day 3 – all pimples continued to get smaller; still had bumps;
Day 4 – all pimples had gotten much smaller, developed a new one on the right jaw and the left cheek
skipped a day
Day 5 – no more pus; the pimples above both brows reduced to the size of a whitehead; the one below the nostril had totally flattened but left a spot; the one on the left jaw and left cheek had gotten much smaller; no more swelling except for the one on the right jaw. It seemed to develop pus, but no biggie.
I asked Sooper Beaute if this solution could be used all over the face, and they said if there were no irritations, then yes it woud be alright.
Initially I thought of using this just as a spot treatment every time I have pimples, but after learning what all these ingredients are for, I think I will use this on a
daily nightly basis. Anyway, I use my Sooper Beaute Baby Skin Snail Serum + Tomato Extract afterwards.
You might think this solution is too strong to be able to treat pimples and acne that fast, but I think otherwise. It doesn’t have any pungent smell; only like a gentle facial cleanser or toner. Despite having to apply it near my eye (three of my “friends” are on my brows), I didn’t feel anything strange. No stinging sensation. But of course, don’t risk it. Never apply on the eyes!
As for the price point, P180 (more or less $3) is already good for 60ml product. It’s not as costly as the ones in the drugstores or department stores, but this is proven effective.
If you have any pimple or acne problems, go ahead and give it a go!
