Products I Use To Fight Acne Breakouts (Review)

After terrible months of acne breakouts, I think I'm on my way to liberty. Nothing ruins a beautiful morning than seeing not one , not two, but at least three ugly zits all over my face, early in the day. Just when you think the zits have died, new ones sprout like as if my face is a fertile soil for these wild grasses. And when they've finally rested in peace, they leave scars that seem like tombs. that won't go away for months. It just rips my heart. Hence, I've tried all means to free myself from this misery. I've tried a lot of products as a result. It's not really about being vain. It's simply about loving yourself by looking good and presentable to others. Getting too many pimples acne can lower your self esteem. I've never had this kind of breakouts before, not til the past months february to april. This month of May, things have change for better. My face is clearer of acne now. I still have two pimples (not acne) on my chin but they're healing already. I still have pimple scars but they are getting less and less visible now. Well, I'm not so sure if I'm giving a premature judgment on how certain products work, but this is a story I want to tell. It's based on personal experience. I am in no way recommending the products I use for I'm not any expert. I just want to share my experience with these products.

So, these are the products I use to help fight/control my acne breakouts.




1. Ponds Clear Solutions Anti Bacterial Facial Scrub


I use this Ponds Clear Solutions Anti-bacterial Facial Scrub every morning upon waking up, during showers, and before bed time. It's Anti-bacterial so it helps kill pimple causing bacteria on my face. I think the big tube costs slightly over a hundred pesos.

2. Ponds Acne Expert Conditioning Toner

Ponds Acne Expert Pore Conditioning Toner works very well for me. It has made my pores tighter. I use this toner after I wash my face, after shower and before bed time as well. When I have stubborn pimple I just take a cotton ball, soak it with this toner and let it sit on top the pimple for a few minutes. I do this because the toner contains Salicylic Acid which is known to be good in killing pimples.


3. PanOxyl Acne Gel

The first time I tried PanOxyl Acnegel (For severe acne and body acne), I was so impressed. My huge acne reduced in size in a matter of minutes. The swelling and redness just vanished. However I don't get the same results now after few months of usage. I think I have developed immunity to it's ingredients. I still do use this acnegel. Supposedly, you apply the gel twice a day. But in my case I apply it to as many as 4 times a day because it's not delivering the same results as the first few weeks of usage.


4. Clean and Clear Pimple Clearing Speed Gel


This Clean and Clear Pimple Clearing Speed Gel is a must have. For me it's better than PanOxyl. But I can't seem to find this product anymore. It's always out of stock. Perhaps in Watsons you can get one. I always used to have one with me wherever I go. Just apply a small amount to your pimple and in minutes you will see results. The pimple just dries up really fast. With PanOxyl, I notice some pimple just come to life again just when you thought it has dried up. But this is not the case with my experience with Clean and Clear Pimple Gel.


With all these products I've seen tremendous improvement on my face. I'm still not achieving the blemish free, pimple free skin I've been dying to have,but I'm happy with the improvements I'm seeing on my face.

Currently I'm using another product, not for my acne but for my wrinkles and age spots. It's been two weeks of usage and I'm loving it. Can't tell for now what the product is. I need a few more weeks before I say my verdict. I also need to hear comments from the people who haven't seen me for a while to see if they can notice any difference. 'Till then..:)

This is just what I need. Thanks for the review dearie. The Eskinol+Dalacin C solution was my solution to this type of problem but I somehow got tired of using it. I want some change. I may try these ponds products.

Lots of love,

Kuya, effective ba talaga ung toner? Gumagamit din kasi ako ng clear solution facial scrub. 1 week ko na siyang ginagamit. Maganda siya, effective sakin. Natutuyo ung tigyawat ko at wala pang tumutubo saking pimple for almost 1 week na. Dati kasi every week may pimple ako. :)

@anonymous, yes effective yung toner. May salicylic acid kasi siya. Ginagamit ang salicylic to treat skin problems like pimples. Mild nga lang siya but if you use the toner with other products mas effective..

Aside from drying the pimple fast, the toner tightens the skin as well.

@anonymous,

hiyangan din kasi yan. try mo if hiyang ba sa skin mo ung toner. results vary from individual to individual. But if you already have a product that works for you, better stick to it, than take the risk of getting breakouts again :)

Thanks for dropping by..
