i almost resorted to using that spot treatment i tried years ago which left me scarred for a long time. those dark pimple scars haunted me for such a long time until i met Obagi. i was on the look out for a good pimple spot remover that would take care of my angry red bumps so i can start Obagi in no time.
1. First cleanse your face and thoroughly dry it.Apply Garnier Pure Shine Control Moisturizer and then use the Garnier Pure SOS Anti-Blemish Spot Pen directly on the blemishes.
3. Finally, add your makeup (foundation, powder, etc.).And no matter how much makeup you use, the results will always be the same!Reuse during the day, if you feel your blemish needs it.
what i love:
cheap, sells for Php179 for a tube
comes in a sticky, gel form so it doesn't drip
packaging comes in a travel-friendly tube
decreases redness overnight (i applied it right before i went to bed so not sure if redness decreased in 5hrs as they claim)
(notice that it's a bit more dry and less swollen)
what i hate:
the consistency becomes so sticky that it messes up with foundation
(dried out, a bit of bump left but not swollen anymore)
overall, i am loving this blemish clear pen from Garnier. it definitely helped in decreasing the redness and swelling...and aids in drying up the pimple. unlike the other blemish spot pens i've tried before, it also doesn't leave a dark scar...there's a bit of a scar but not that dark. as for the clearing up of the scar, i will still wait til i've seen some improvements.
will i buy again?
before applying foundation, make sure the gel is really dry first. it would be better to just dab the gel on the blemish using your finger. blend it well before applying makeup.
to be more hygienic, you can use a cotton bud to get some of the gel from the tube then dab it on the blemish
do not put too much
