Pros: Helps get rid of zits fast
Cons: Can only purchase this product at two places
Right before my aunt came to visit I my face started to get the break out from hell, I was getting a zit on my forehead and a Mount Fuji size on my chin. Over the years I have tried several products go dry up my zits and none of them have worked. Normally I try to cover up what I can with makeup but after the makeup comes off there is no hiding the truth. After taking my shower in the evening my aunt saw my face and handed me this product and told me to put this on all the spots in my face and to make sure that you cover the zit well, and to leave it on my face over night.
When I looked at the bottle what I saw that she had given me was Victoria Principals Principal Secret Blemish Buster. My first thought was that this was another over priced celebrity product that would not work. Since most products I have tried have never worked my expectations for this product where not very high. Boy was I surprised at the results I got.
The next morning I was the remaining residue off my face, and notice that the zit between my eyes looked a little less red; however the Mount Fuji size zit on my chin only seemed to get bigger and redder. When I expressed my concerns to my aunt she just stated the white head or what was causing the zit, had to before the product will work. So right before I went to bed I cleaned my face and re-applied this product to my skin.
The redness between my eyes is barely noticeable, now I was only concerned with the zit on my chin. When the zit on my chin came to a full whitehead breaking the skin, I used my skin tool which is designed for removing blackheads and whiteheads, and removed the white head from the zit. I than again applied the blemish buster on the spots on my face prior to going to bed.
Day 3 +: Within two to three days of removing the white head the zit on my chin was 98% gone. I was really impressed with this product on how well it worked I wanted to know where my aunt had gotten it so I could purchase some for myself. My aunt was nice enough to give me the bottle that she brought with her, and I have been using this product for the two months and have been greatly impressed with the results. I normally start using this product from the moment I notice a zit coming on, although it may not prevent the whitehead from forming, it does help speed up the drying up process once the whitehead is removed.
This product comes in a 0.5oz bottle, with and easy to screw off cap. Before using this product make sure that your face is clean and apply any moisturizers that you may use to your face. Shake the bottle before using, apply to the zit using a cotton swab or the tip of your finger, and make sure that you cover the zit well. When you apply this product in some cases, you might feel a slight sting that will go away within a few seconds. Within a few minutes the liquid will dry into a white powder, let it sit on your face over night and wash it off in the morning. In the catalog it does state that the product can be worn under makeup, however I have only used this product at night.
One of the things that impressed me about this product was the ingredients. Unlike most products which contain benzyl peroxide, which can irritate and dry out your skin, this product uses sulfur as its active ingredient, along with camphor and zinc oxide, to help soothe the skin and help with getting ride of the zit fast. This product does however contain some alcohol however with the other active ingredients is does not cause dry skin.
There is only one drawback to this product is that I have found that you can only purchase this product at two places on the web, which is either QVC.com or from Principal Secret. Unless you a member of the Principal Secret club you can expect to pay $20 plus shipping and handling and if youre only interested in this product you might have to order a catalog to be able to place your order since the option to place an individual item order is not available on the website.
Despite the price this product is well worth the results. It helps dry up zits within days and the ingredients will not irritate or dry up your skin. One thing I have also found is that the 0.5 oz bottle goes a long way and is well worth the cost. If you suffer from acne and are looking for a product that will help get ride of your zits fast it is worth giving this product a try.
