Ever been in a situation where you need immediate attention to get rid of that painful bump on the skin?
I am referring to mini breakouts, pimple and acnes!
I do recommend Acnes Medicated Skincare from Mentholatum. My bf and myself have tried them a year ago and it’s not bad in getting rid of those irritating bumps.
There’s this twin pack which has been launched for quite some time, consists of a creamy facial wash and a sealing gel for acne-prone skin.
I will say the creamy facial wash is just like a maintenance, to be used regularly, while the sealing gel acts like an emergency first aider to fix those bumps.
Mentholatum Acnes Sealing Jell
Do not try to tear off the silver seal. What we need is just a small amount for application, tearing off the silver seal will end up dispensing excess gel, causing wastage.
Instead, turn the cap and twist onto the silver seal. The cap will poke into the seal to allow a small opening for dispensing.
I normally use it after squeezing out (though not recommended) the pimples and dirt if the pimples are small. I’ll then apply the sealing jell on the affected area and leave it on overnight. It helps to kill the bacteria from deep inside of pores.
For acnes, I don’t squeeze unless it’s almost fully ripen. Usually I will dab over the acnes spot a few times a day. It takes a few days for the acne to be subsided.
Mentholatum Acnes Sealing Jell basically acts as a medical care for pimples and acnes. It’s not about squeezing the bumps.
Mentholatum Acnes Creamy Wash
It’s basically a facial wash, helps to remove excess oil, dirt and impurities. Our skin tends to product natural oil sebum, but if there’s an excess in the production, acnes and pimples start to form. Regular use of a proper facial helps keep acnes at bay.
It contains Vitamin C to retain skin’s moisture, keeping it soft and moisturized after cleansing.
Also contains Vitamin E (anti-oxidant), to maintain skin’s elasticity.
Just need to lather the creamy wash with water and massage gently onto face, followed by a rinse.
Very easy to lather. My dry surface cheeks don’t feel dry after cleansing. Skin feels clean and moisturized.
