I see sachets of Quick FX and Beauty Fix in most Watsons stores. Sakto, I’m looking for a spot treatment for my recent breakout. As a cheapskate, I always look for cheaper alternative before buying expensive ones. Last month, I bought a sachet of Quick FX Pimple Eraser together with Beauty Fix Nose Pack. This is delayed post again because I needed 3 weeks to fully observe its performance. You guys know skin care products take longer to review than makeup. 🙂
Helps to dry up and diminish pimples. Reduces dark spots due to scarring, helps protect skin against the sun. With Glycolic Acid that rejuvenates and evens out skin tone. With Salicylic Acid that helps prevent and treat acne. With Zinc Oxide that helps control inflammations and relieves skin against irritation and rash.
-Affordable, 50 pesos ($1) for 10g
-Accessible, available in most Watsons stores
-Sachet-type packaging with cap for no spills
-Did not cause irritations
-No sticky feeling
-Has Salicylic Acid and Glycolic acid as anti bacterial while Niacinamide for brightening
-Helps to dry up acne, small or cystic ones
-Has lots of comedogenic ingredients like Myristic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Stearic Acid and Cetearyl Alcohol. Mineral Oil and Cetearyl Alcohol are some of its main ingredients
I still included comedogenic ingredients as a con for you guys who are bothered by them. I was skeptical to buy one in the store when I saw its ingredients. Each skin is unique so reactions will vary when using products. Now here’s what it looks like. It’s a lotion-y type spot treatment. No sticky or oily feeling. I apply it as directed. Dab it on the pimple and let it absorb.
I find it effective whether I got a small pimple or cystic acne. I can see progress each day when I apply it. In my experience it usually takes 2 days only for a cystic acne to dry up. To me that’s fast compared to other spot treatments. There are times that it can cause mild peeling and I like it. That’s when you know its salicylic acid is working. It minimizes the risk of getting dark marks. It’s important for my thin skin because I get hyperpigmentation easily. Overall, it’s effective for me aside from that it’s really affordable. I’m glad I came across this great product.
