PONDS ACNE CLEAR 3 DAY CHALLENGE
I made this review on sunday 8.28.16 (yesterday).
It's my 3rd day today! 🙌✨ I bought this at Robinson Imus, I just felt like buying it. Although, I'm looking for an alternative cleanser because I don't wanna be too "hiyang" with my fave Safeguard dermasense. The good thing about it is that they sell this in a small sachet, just like any trial size cleansers (ponds, eskinol, etc.) It's affordable only php 6!! 🙌✨ I didn't hesitate buying it because I remember I used to be "hiyang" with ponds during my HS days. So, moving on with my review, before I use this, I have 2 cystic acne between my eyebrow area, one on my upper lip area, and random zits all over my chin, and a little bit on my forehead. I'm using a silicone brush from watsons along with this cleanser.
PROS:✔️ It is gentle on the skin. Unlike other ponds products that I've used, this one doesn't have any microbeads. (Although, I wish it has one.) ✔️it brightened up my skin temporarily. ✔️it halted my oil production for 30 minutes less or more.
✔️i didn't PURGE but the next morning after my first use I got a very teenie-tiny zit above my eyebrow which is gone in less than 24 hours (weird right?😅) NO CYSTIC ACNE, it even cured my CYSTIC ACNE IN JUST 3 days. But on my third day, I got zits on my chin. Not complaining!
✔️I don't feel like I'll be having any breakout soon even though I'm just a week away before the arrival of my "time of the month".
(Extra update: this is my 4th day, the zits on my chin and one on my forehead are starting to have pus, I don't know if that's a good sign or not but hopefully tomorrow they are ready to be harvested 😂😭)
CONS: ✖️the smell!! It smells like an ointment, or tea tree. (I've never been bothered by tea tree before, but the smell of this one, I CAN'T EVEN)
OVERALL, I'm repurchasing this again! Prolly, on tuesday! I'll be stocking up other ponds products too. I used to like the black variant and the other acne variant. I'll repurchase the three of them on tuesday! 💗💘 I always thought that commercial products have bad blood with my skin. I forgot where I've started 😅 but it doesn't mean I'm quitting ORGANIC products.
