After cleansing the face, pour lotion on cotton pad, dab gently and evenly on the face. Don’t wash again with water. Shake it well before use. For best results use at least twice a day.
Mentholatum Acnes Creamy Wash comes in a tube form. It's stated as a mild and non-irritating cream wash for daily use to effectively prevent pimples, remove excess sebum and keeping your skin soft and moist . The cleanser is indeed very creamy and has a citrus smell like lemon.
The only thing I dislike about the cleanser is that I feel my face looking very white after it and it was not a brightening/whitening effect. It was as if there was a layer of powder over it. I was thinking it could be possible they added some clay inside so that after washing , there'll be a layer of clay to absorb the excess sebum from the face. I also feel the skin doesn't feel that soft but instead feels a little rough as if there's powder. But overall , I find it a good and effective cleanser since my pimples did disappear after a few days of usage.
MENTHOLATUM ACNES SPOT CARE-ACNES TREATMENT SERIES
Advance formula with double whitening actives
Fades the look of dark spots and soften skin
Transparent gel can be applied before of after makeup
I was a bit skeptical when I first bought this though. Anyway, so I applied this at night before I went to sleep. And the morning I woke up, I noticed that the size of my pimple have been reduced to a significant size . The pimple wasn't in-your-face-waving-hello type of thing. I also noticed it also reduced the redness of the pimple. I also like how the cream doesn't sting at all . I noticed that most spot treatments have that burning sensation once it gets contact with your skin. I also didn't experience any peeling or flakiness where I've applied the cream while using it.
This cream is also a affordable for a small tube. It's 33k a pop although you only need a little cream just to cover the pimple. So depending on how often you get your breakouts will determine how long this product will last you .
