Over a month? Really?
Welcome to my blog, again.
Today I have a very special review for you, as this product is truly godsend for me.
Mizon has been popular lately, with its star product Snail Cream, and it's whole skincare line of snail-related products.
Today I'll be reviewing one of the product from the Acence line (aka acne/blemish). Acne or blemish, I can never differentiate the two, has always been a problem for my skin.
Sometimes, it's not so bad that I can just forget that I have any. Recently, it's been really bad. I guess it has something to do with increased instant food intake and less sleep.
So when I'm about to purchase a second tube of the Snail Gel, I came across Mark-X Blemish After Cream. The seller highly recommended the product, and I googled it. Hmm. not a lot of review. It's said to work better on acne marks (hence, blemish after cream). It was around IDR 160,000 for 30mls, but you use it sparingly anyways so I bought it.
I used it, not having high expectations as most 'miracle' product doesn't really woo me. It's a salve-like yellow cream with a very medicinal scent. Boasting the property of 12,5% propolis extract, it claimed to have healing benefits while diminishing current acne. I applied it on generously as the last step of my skincare routine (clarisonic - toner - snail gel as moisturizer - this) on my problem areas. It's a smelly and rather oily cream, but if it works, I'm not complaining.
|You get the idea|
Ok, I just need to let pictures talk.
Upper row is my left cheek and lower row is my right cheek.
Numbered 1 is the before condition of my skin - red, angry, protruding blemishes. One of the them erupted already so I used Nexcare Acne Patch to suck up the uh secretion.
Numbered 2, is 10 minutes after I applied the cream. The redness immediately calmed down significantly, although when this cream is on my skin it feels rather oily.
Numbered 3, is a week (or less) after diligently using this cream. Note that I only use this at night, as the cream makes my makeup look funny in the day. I know that there's a lighting difference, but still!
Can you see how much of a difference it made? Note that I didn't use any other acne meds, not even my origins super spot remover, because I want to test it. The seemingly oily texture didn't add more acne. It truly fades blemishes, the angry ones and the dying ones.
I love it, for the price, it's just love. Right now it didn't really progress much from picture number 3 but there's only teeny tiny blemishes left (to be zapped off with my origins spot remover) and faded acne scars. Not much of a problem anymore, easily covered with makeup.
(I don't use any sort of base product other than sunblock and a sheer puff of powder to classes, by the way)
Signing off with *relatively* clear skin. I love you Mizon mwah :*
