Happy weekend readers! I hope you’re up for another skincare review. This is an updated version. I really loved this cleanser 4 years ago. My skin got used to it so I took a break.

Staff said: Some people experience initial breakouts when it’s their first time using this
When at the store: Ask the SA to cut it into squares/cubes. This soap melts easily.
Storage: Use a soap dish with holes to let the water drip out. Keep the rest in a dry container with top cover or plastic bag
Toner: Use a hydrating toner because this can give your skin tight feeling.
As spot treatment: Wet/moisten a cotton bud. Glide it on the soap and apply directly on blemishes

– Dual function

– Tones down the redness of blemishes
– Dried up/ripen some of my pimples after one use as cleanser & spot treatment
– Saw improvements for the whole face after one week
– Melts easily

– Has fragrance and 3 comedogenic ingredients (Coconut Oil, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate & Sodium Chloride) that can irritate others’ skin
Comedogenic ingredients has “tendency” to block pores accdg to a Reddit post. It will depend on your skin’s reaction. Some people are okay with them and others react differently.
I have a cleanser and spot treatment in one soap. 100 grams is Php395 ($8). I think it’s reasonably priced. We usually get 120 grams and that’s 495 pesos. We dont want the staff to have a hard time getting the exact weight.😊 You can tell them if you want 100 grams only.
This is an effective cleanser and spot treatment for me. It helps to minimize and dry up pimples quickly.😊 It doesnt matter if blemishes are big or small. Most of them are gone in as early as 3 days.☺️ I don’t frequently visit my derma’s clinic anymore to get them injected unlike before. This is the only cleanser that dries up my acne and improves/smoothens overall skin texture😊❤️ This would fit in the category if I could label any “holy grail” skincare product. 👯
