My recent trip to Singapore Sephora at ION back February, I bought the most expensive spot treatment for myself! SGD50 for this! I have never in my life spent that much on a pimple cream but I console myself that I really need it. When the TOTM is here, I usually have a few small zits here and there, and they are easily dried up by Oxy, Clinique, Vichy or some toner which contain alcohol. But few months ago, I'll occasionally have this mega bit cyst pimple! Arghh it is red, painful, and take a long while to go away sob sob. So I was on a hunt for a good drying agent for these annoyance grrrr
(it's actually less tan in colour, more like white beige)
Acne cream that conceals! Drying Cream is an effective treatment to dry up small under the surface bumps and pimples. Just a few dabs smoothed on the erupted areas prevent pimples from getting larger and spreading out of control. Aloe rich cream conceals and heals erupted pimples.
HOW TO USE: Apply sparingly on pimples by dabbing with fingertip until cream blends into the skin. Best when applied after moisturizer, before make-up.
INGREDIENTS: Deionized Water, Zinc Oxide,Aloe, Beeswax,Cetyl Alcohol,Lemon Extract, Colloidal Sulfur,Ervol,Octyl Palmitate,Ichthammol,Polysorbate 80, Titanium Dioxide,Polyglycerylmethacrylate (and) Propylene Glycol
What are my thoughts about this?
- Packaging: Not that good, because I will have to use cotton bud to pick it up so it is not that hygienic, but then again, it is a generous tub! I read reviews that it can last 12 months!
- Texture: Thick cream
- Smell: Hmm this is kinda hard to describe. It's herbal, clean, not too pungent
- Reminded me of Nixoderm!!!
sorry if this pic gross you out, it kinda gross me out too >.<
Bah! Whenever I get these zits, my mum would nag me "Did you put on some Nixoderm? Do it now." Do you gals know of this brand? It's been around for ages like 30 years? I actually totally forgot about this brand till I bought Mario Badescu Drying Cream, because the smell suddenly struck me! ps: Nixoderm is only a fraction cost, around RM5?
Does it work?Reviews by others said it only takes a day for them, and the pimple will be gone by morning. But it does not seems to be the case for me! Don't get me wrong, it does make the pimple go away but like 3 weeks for me?!?! Okay, maybe because it is a mega one, like I said lol But the pimple might subside, but I felt a tiny bump still there and discolour on the spot. You be my judge:
My Birthday Giveaway is ending on 3rd April 2011!
