Surprisingly effective anti-acne cream
I didn't expect much when I bought this cream, but after a couple of days use I was pleasantly surprised. It left my skin refreshed and calm. At the time I was experiencing a small breakout of 3 pimples. I used this cream and the pimples disappeared in no time.
The ingredients of this cream are Deionized water, Honeysuckle, Aloe, Chamomile and Tea tree.
This cream is produced in China and I bought it from eBay.
I left a review on eBay and gave it 5 stars because it is actually a very effective anti-acne cream. It calms breakouts, it matifies the skin and it feels lovely on the skin. The texture is luxurious and thick. Yet, it is super light when you spread it, it sinks in quickly and matifies the skin instantly. You can imagine the scent if you've used Tea tree products- fresh and energising.
But there are a few things I don't like about this cream. The price £12 is too high for the 30 gr. we are given in the jar. ( Compare that to The Body shop Anti-imperfection daily solution which is 50ml and costs £13, but I always get it almost half price because their stores as well as their website offer great discounts every month) But because this cream is so effective, if you want to give it a try, I think that it is worth purchasing it even at this price.
The other thing that I don't like about this cream is that it makes my eyes teary on application. On the packaging one of the ingredients is DL-Menthol. I wonder if that is the reason that it makes my eyes teary. As you can imagine, this makes it inconvenient to use when I am in a hurry in the morning. Applying mascara and eye make up after I've applied this cream is just too difficult because my eyes are tearful. At night there is no problem, I close my eyes for a few minutes to prevent them from tearing and all is well within a few minutes.
I would say, give this cream a try if you have occasional breakouts, it will calm them and possibly make them disappear just as it did with mine. But if you have severe acne, you might want to look for another cheaper alternative to this cream. Remember it is only 30gr. and it won't last you long if you apply it twice daily....
I used mine only when I had the breakout I mentioned. The cream cleared my skin and I have been pimple free ever since. I have some cream left and keep it in case I have another breakout. But I use Tea tree oil Anti-imperfection daily solution from The Body shop daily- which is much less expensive and super effective at preventing blemishes.
Next I will be writing a review on The Body shop Tea tree oil Anti-imperfection daily solution ( in the photo below)
