Acne, acne, acne. It doesn’t go away with age, I tell ya.
I remember during my high school days, during those days when my hormones were all raging, and my acne was on its all time high. I felt so insecure having those redness on my face, unable to hide them, and desperately looking for the cure those days. I resorted to astringents ( I’ve wiped my skin oil-free every 3 hours with astringent in class ), and even stumbled into over the counter products that burned my skin, making me cry so hard because the burn happened a few days before the prom, and left quite a dark mark on my face!
Yes, acne can affect how you live, how you work, and how you interact with people. Sometimes I wish that acne was one skin condition that although very “shallow” for some, will just be “phased-out” . Just imagine that, one day, people without the threat of acne in their lives. That would just be so wonderful!
But reality check, it’s here during one’s younger years, and it can still remain there when it pleases during one’s adult life!
Fast forward to 2016, we have a new product from Pond’s that’s so affordable, and promises to eradicate acne in 3 days. Pond’s Acne Clear Leave-On Spot Clearing Gel is something to indeed try for those who have acne-prone skin.
“In order to address this pressing concern, Pond’s, the number 1 face care brand in the Philippines, formulated an innovative combination of Thymol and Terpineol (TT), for the New Pond’s Acne Clear product range. Imbued with revolutionary Lock + Clear technology, the new Pond’s Acne Clear is the first in the world to lock powerful acne- fighting Active Thymo-T Essence, which penetrates deep inside bacteria cells to clear acne from the root.”
Very interesting. So I used this for a few days to see how it fared on me. After all, adult acne is still in my life.
As I squirted product from the tube, it was a clear gel, and as I applied it on my chin, where acne still thrived. My skin absorbed it rather quickly, and there was no sting. After a few days, I see my acne did not darken into spots, but my acne was dry and almost gone. This must be one great product that I’ll recommend to even young ones because the formula is mild in my opinion – it won’t cause burns for over usage, and yet, it is subtle in its work in drying up acne and just addressing the concern!
Looks like this will be a staple on my vanity table, as you don’t know when acne will strike again!
