Hello again! I just got home from school. Gosh I hate my 6 to 9PM class. -____- I’m going to post for 3 straight days. Some of you may find it annoying. I have to do it because I won’t be able to post anything for the next 2 weeks. I have to finish our group and individual reports. 😦 It’s gonna be our midterm exams as well at the end of January. Woah, it’s really a stressful school year for me though I’m just a second year college student. @____@
In my previous posts and including this one, they’re all about topical acne treatments~
I really wanted to buy Panoxyl’s Acne Gel 10% again because it’s so effective for drying up pimples. I searched at different Mercury Drug Store branches but I couldn’t find any. So I wrote of PanOxyl’s facebook wall and asked where could I find it?
Panoxyl messaged me. Here’s their reply:
Hello Diana, the gel format has been discontinued as a result of a global corporate decision to focus on PanOxyl Cream. PanOxyl Cream also contains benzoyl peroxide (in 4% concentration) as its active ingredient like the gels. This product will be available very soon in leading drugstores near you.
I was really sad that it’s discontinued! But, it won’t hurt to try the new one. 🙂
The packaging isn’t the same with the gels. It’s in a plastic tube. It comes in one size only. I bought it around PHP230. The price is still expensive for me. 😛
I’m used to their 10% acne gel. I thought 4% concentration wasn’t enough. I didn’t feel any stinging sensation when I applied it. Yaaay for that! Since it’s in a plastic tube, it’s easier for the product to come out and you’re in control of the amount. It’s not that strong so it doesn’t cause darker spots…. just redness and lighter spots. It dries up small pimples effectively like 3 to 4 days. 🙂 The downside of this is it’s slow in drying cystic pimples.
