Kiehls Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment ReviewWednesday, May 10, 2017
Assalamualaikum and hello! It's only fitting to review this item now as I am a few squeezes away to finishing it. I started experiencing this massive breakout on my face since the end of 2016. It's due to some stuff about hormonal imbalance mixed with inadequate rest and poor eating habit so there goes my good skin days. It's May 2017 now and I am still struggling with super bad skin condition but I will prevail, the battle is not over yet. There has been some improvements but nothing is good enough so far.
I invested in this 30ml tube of Kiehl's Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment with a hope that it's gonna be my ultimate zit-buster. At a price tag of RM127.00 this thing is not cheap at least for me. Since Kiehl's Malaysia just launched it's online store at that time, I decided to purchase this along with a tub of mask. I'm not new to Kiehl's as I previously have tried their oil-free range and their shampoo. So far, I'm liking their products and they work well on me most of the time.
As usual, there is nothing fancy about the packaging because it's Kiehl's trademark anyway. The blemish control daily skin-clearing treatment is housed in a convenient, slim squeeze tube that is travel friendly and hygienic due to the fact that you don't need to dip your fingers in it. At first I thought 30ml is an amount too tiny but after months with it, I guess I was wrong.
Kiehl's Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment has a slightly runny consistency. Look at the image below, the white creamy substance is what you'll get upon squeezing the tube. The nozzle can be quite messy if you squeeze out too much product or if you forgot to lock the cap tightly. Other than that, I have no complaints.
As a user with serious acne problem, this product is a 50-50 for me. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Maybe it depends on how bad the acne situation is for me. It is not entirely a magical stuff that one must buy. After months of using it, I realize that it works best on small, non-serious or non-cystic acne. On super large bumps that look like they come straight from hell, this baby doesn't work.
Another effect that I got from using this cream is that my skin became a bit sensitive but it has been explained on the product packaging that this cream may cause peeling hence usage should be reduced if it happens. At first I used it daily before moisturizer in the morning and at night but after my skin started peeling I minimized my usage to every other day.
The product doesn't have any uncomfortably weird smell so it's a plus point. It dries fast on skin and it doesn't feel greasy at all. I wish it could be potent on me because it has all the good points for me to repurchase but it seems like I am still on a quest to find a better acne treatment product.
If you're looking for an acne treatment solution and you only have small or occasional non-serious acne, I would suggest you to try this Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment because it works well on that kind of blemish. However it is up to you to try no matter what level of seriousness your acne problem is, because the response our skin gives is very personal and individual. Some might work on me but not on you, and vice versa. It's best to consult the brand's beauty advisor if you are serious in purchasing :)
