Quick FX Pimple Eraser
Bought for: P129
Bought from: The SM Store
Quick FX Pimple Eraser or even just the brand itself is something I have known since I was in high school. The number of products they produce are still as handful as I remembered, they haven't grown or branched out yet, but they have definitely marked the hearts of a lot of beauty enthusiasts. Their No Shine Mattifier was useful for me and just recently their Eye Lift Cream added to the list of affordable drugstore products that works.
CLAIMS, DIRECTION FOR USE, INGREDIENTS
It comes in typical Quick FX packaging, very decent and neat and the tube itself is sturdy as it's made of hard plastic. I really like this type of packaging since dispensing product is hassle-free and I can conveniently bring it anywhere I go without worrying it might break or what.
Even though the tube itself is small, you can count on Quick FX to be transparent with its claims, ingredient list and also with its manufacturing and expiry dates.
Just like most products from Quick FX, the scent is very faint, almost indistinguishable. This is perfect for those who don't like fragrances or strong scents. I prefer fragrance-free products too because those that have fragrances may cause breakouts as well.
TEXTURE, CONSISTENCY AND EASE OF APPLICATION
Product comes in an opaque white cream formula that's soft, quite thick and deceiving. Deceiving in a good way because it looks thick but doesn't feel heavy or greasy at all when applied. It gets absorbed by the skin easily while leaving a teeny bit of dewiness.
First things first, let me tell you how I love the finish it creates on the skin. It instantly brightens up my face without leaving any white cast and it dries almost semi-matte yet a healthy glow from the skin still would peek through. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin yet it moisturizes just enough. On most days I'm lazy following my routine, I just apply this right after I hydrate with Avene Eau Thermale Spring Water and use this as both moisturizer and sunblock. Saves me time!
It's directed to use only on affected parts but I like applying it all over my face except eye area. With regular use, I noticed that the pimple scars on my jaw area and lower cheeks are slightly fading. Maybe this is also with the help of Niacinamide which works to treat and lighten dark spots.
This product claims that it has Vitamin C which, even in huge concentration, might not fully help in reversing sun damage, but since this has loads of skin benefits, who am I to complain? No matter how much Vitamin C this product has, it won't do you bad.
Even though it's infused with Salicylic Acid, I really don't think it helps dry out my pimples. Gradually, but not overnight unlike other spot treatments. If you are looking for heavy duty spot treatments, this may not work for you. What I like about this though is that it seems to prevent breakouts and if I get some (due to red days), they are relatively smaller than what's usual.
Overall, I still like Quick FX Pimple Eraser. The texture and finish are quite amazing given its price and will continue to finish my tube for maximum effects. Let me know what you think of this! Happy blogging!
