My favorite is none other than the famous OXY. A lot of people say that OXY is a little bit too harsh on the skin, as you will notice that the skin around your pimple will dry and flake off if you apply it to regularly. The main feature of OXY is to dry out your pimple (thanks to the Benzoyl Peroxide) , so it's understandable. Once you see that the pimple is no longer "ripe", you should stop applying as the deed is already done, haha.
My personal skincare routine is to use the normal acne-pimple medication at night :
10 refers to 10% benzoyl peroxide, the not-so-secret ingredient of Oxy. This is the maximum strength one already. =)
Tilt your head around, hahaha.
When I first started using Oxy Cover, I felt so weird using it because it's really like a cream foundation! I felt weird to use it at night because I felt like I was wearing make-up to bed. Hence, the reason why I need to buy two tubes of Oxy instead of one like a normal person would... ;)
I've tried other brands before --- mainly :
As for Garnier's Pure : SOS Blemish clear pen, it is just crap! It's kinda cheap (but it's a really small tube... only 10ml. This one claims to give effective results in 5 hours! You know what happened? I felt that the more I put this cream on my pimple, the more it GREW. And if you think it's a GOOD thing (for the pimple to grow ripe and then burst), it kept growing, but at no point looked like it was going to burst. I was so furious! I really dare not use this "blemish pen" again...
