Review: Quick Fx Pimple Eraser

I’ve been having dull skin lately and there’s no one else to blame but myself. I watch movies/read books until the wee hours of the night. I’d usually sleep around 12 midnight. Sometimes, I’d stretch to 1 am when the movie/book really piques my interest. It’s been a habit that I am trying really hard to control, but to no avail. This, of course, has taken its toll on my skin.
Last week, I had 3 alive and kicking zits on my right cheeks. They weren’t huge, but boy were they red and sore. It was such a bummer because it was a long weekend and I had to go out. I’ve tricked myself into thinking that I did not have those little monsters on my face, thanks to my trusty concealer. Or so I thought!  Unfortunately, my usual topical antibiotic failed me for the first time. It didn’t help at all! I then scavenged through my emergency kit hoping to see some light. And then there it was, an orange packet of eternal sunshine –  the Quick Fx Pimple Eraser.
I was quite hesitant to try it at first, to be honest. I remember purchasing it for a measly amount of 49php at Watsons. What else could I expect, right? But knowing that it has Glycolic Acid and Salicylic acid, well, how bad could it be?

Quick Fx Pimple Eraser claims to help dry up pimples, helps diminish and reduce dark spots due to scarring, and helps protect skin against the sun. 

I did not expect grand results, but I am happy to report that, after three days, my zits were gone! I was actually amazed that this product worked. I wish I had documented the progress, but reviewing this was unplanned. I took a second look at the ingredients to justify this sorcery.

Quick Fx Pimple Eraser  has 5 active ingredients. Let’s be dorky together and take a closer look:

1. Glycolic Acid – Rejuvenates and evens out skintone. I remember my dermatologist used to encourage me to have glycolic peels once in a while. Apparently, glycolic acid is a known natural exfoliant. It helps remove dead skin cells and allows healthy, glowy skin to surface.

2. Salicylic Acid –  I bet we all know what this is for. This potent acid is known to treat acne.

3. Zinc Oxide – Helps control inflammations and relieves skin irritations. It also protects the skin against the harmful rays of the sun; an SPF of some sort.

4. Vitamin C – Helps lighten skin pigmentation. It also help relieve troubled skin and fight bacteria.

5. Niacinamide – Also an agent known to lighten skin.

Looking at the ingredients, I can see why it helped dried up my nasty zits in an instant. For one, salicylic acid played a major role on this – although I still suggest a patch test before using it. Let me just reiterate that it did help dry up my pimples, but not so much on the lightening part. The zits still left light scars on my cheeks.

WHAT I LIKE:

– Affordable. Only 49php (10 g),
– Dries up pimples in 3 days, on me at least. This is still a case-to-case basis,
– I like the fact that the sachet comes with a seal – convenient and hygienic,
– Has a thick consistency, so a little goes a long way,
– No adverse reactions,
– Does not have a strong scent.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE:

– The product sits on top of the skin, so you can’t really use it under makeup,
– Some people might be allergic to salicylic acid (AGAIN, a patch test is a must!)

VERDICT:

I usually apply this at night after toning my skin. It’s an okay product for me. I appreciate that it dried up my pimples, although I wish it did not leave scars. But for 49php? I can’t really complain, can I? Also, I cannot vouch if this would be as effective on cystic zits. I suggest you read up and try it at your own risk. Nonetheless, I’m happy to have this in my stash for emergency purposes.

WILL I REPURCHASE?:

Maybe not. I’d be willing to invest on something more effective.  (2016 Update – 3 years later, I still have this as a staple in my acne emergency kit. And it now comes in a convenient tube!  Really good stuff!

    I have tried this before and it really worked! So cheap yet effective! I love this product as much as I love eskinol pimple eraser. By the way, just to share, I learned through experiment that letting it set then applying another layer will dry pimples faster 😀

  20. Hi, you need to apply this underneath the powder, otherwise it will just slide. I also have oily skin, but it works for me. 🙂

      Hi Angel, I usually apply it at night befire I go to sleep. But you can use it at least 3 times a day since it’s not harsh on the skin.

      Hi,

      You can apply a thin layer and wait for it to get absorbed by the skin before applying your makeup. 🙂
