Totally worth it...
Reviewed in India on 22 September 2021
I had so many breakout and adult acne, and it used to stay for long, and then reduce and another breakout. I am not sure if it's because of humid climate, stress or my hormones as I suffer from PCOD. I have super oily acne prone skin. My face looked dull and bad due to adult acne and marks. Its already been more than 6months, I am facing this issue.
It's been 2 weeks, I started using this product, the pimple have reduce and the marks are slowly fading. I still have few pimple and marks but I can see a visible difference. I will continue using it and update again later. Maybe, I will share my my before and after pics.
Other products that I use:
I have been using the Minimalist 25% chemical peel, and the minimalist oats moisturizer. For cleansing I use Wow charcoal facewash, and in the morning I use Regaliz Solasafe SPF 50+ sunscreen as I stay near coastal area where its humid climate and lot of sun. For toner I use dabur gulabari rosewater and Kaya toner - the mandelic acid which is for Oily and combination skin.
Day routine: As soon as I wake up wash my hand and wash my face with cold water. Apply Patanjali aloevera gel, and leave it for sometime. After I finish my morning work may be in and hour or so, I bath and then wash my face with Wow Facewash. towel dry my face and pat in rosewater 3 or 4 times. After which spray the Kaya tone on face and pat it until my face has absorbed it. I keep my face a little wet from the toners and the apply the minimalist am serum (Niacinamide) drops on my overall face avoiding eye and lips. I wait for 2-5 mins and then apply the Minimalist Oats moisturizer and after 2-3 mins apply the Regaliz Solasafe Sunscreen. If I have to go out or if I feel like i dab in some Himalaya baby powder or Whitetone powder. I don't use any make up except for some lipstick and lipbalm if I am going out.
Night routine: I wash my face with Wow facewash, towel dry and then dab in rosewater and kaya toner. After which I apply Minimalist pm serum - Salicylic acid, 2 drops all over face avoiding eye and lips. After 2-5 mins I apply Minimalist Oats moisturizer.
The 25% chemical peel I use once a week or may be a little longer than a week after 8 or 9 days. At night, I wash my face and apply 2-4 drops, leave it for 10 mins or less and wash it with luke warm water. After which, I apply rosewater and Kaya toner very little quantity and then apply Minimalist moisturizer. I skip the Salicylic serum the day I apply the chemical peel and the next day I skip the Niacinamide and Salicylic serum, as it can be harsh on my face. I start using the serum from the 3rd day of using the chemical peel.
This is the routine and products that I use. I am not saying the same will help you and I am not endorsing any products here. I have done a lot of research and carefully selected the products that works for my skin and have done patch test for all. The same may or may not help you. Do patch test and atleast give 2-3 weeks to see if any products give you any difference. Also you may not find significant difference in 2-3 weeks as it depends on your skin and body and also what you intake and the environment you live in.
I am writing this review after seeing 25% difference on my face, after 2 weeks and I am happy. I know it will take time for 100% as I need to inculcate other good habits like exercise and what I eat.
Maybe after few week I will share my before and after picture.
Stay safe and happy :)
