It's the end of the month again...time for the Splurge & Save corner...
Zits keep popping on my face...& im really getting annoyed with this pesky bumps so my June splurge & save will be about pimple treatment...
As what i said before, when i was a teenager i have never broken out as much as i do now..& its really irritating. So on my quest to find out what can help fight zits, i present to you the products that i have tried/been eyeing....
For Tea Tree Oil:
Splurge: The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil
-The pre-blended tea tree oil formulation is a true superstar. Not only is it great for emergency, on-the-spot care of blemishes, it is a multi-functional product that can be used in many other ways.
-pros:as what they said, it's multi-function
Save: Zen Zest Tea Tree Oil
-Extracted from the leaves and twigs of the Australian Tea Tree, its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties deep cleanses your skin and leaves it blemish free.
-Php 120 (less than $3)
-pros:same with TBS oil, this can also be multi-function
-cons:might not be available internationally
Tea Tree Oil really works! Just dab a little on the bump...especially at night & the moment you wake up it's gone!
For Acne Treatment Concealer:
Splurge: Murad Acne Treatment Concealer
-Heals blemishes with acne-fighting Salicylic Acid while providing long lasting coverage
-pros: it's not drying unlike other concealers
-cons: only 3 shades:light, medium, dark
Save: Physicians Formula Conceal Rx Physicians Strength Concealer
-Maximum coverage concealer formula that glides on smoothly to conceal blemishes, dark under-eye circles, scars, birthmarks, age spots, bruises, rosacea and hyperpigmentation.
-pros: available everywhere
-cons: might be a bit drying
We need to conceal zits, but at the same time we don't want to pack cosmetics on our pores seeing as its all red & swollen. These concealers do the job in concealing & healing!
For Clarifying Mask:
Splurge: Murad Clarifying Mask
-Draws out impurities and absorbs excess oil to control and prevent breakouts
-pros: works almost instantly
-cons: the smell might be overwhelming for some because of the sulfur
Save: Aspirin Mask
-check my post to know more info about it HERE
-a bottle of aspirin is more or less than $3
-pros: dirt cheap & is available everywhere
-cons: you have to take the time to prepare it for yourself
If we need to use Clarifying shampoo on our hair..how much more our face?!
i swear that Aspirin mask works wonder...Murad's mask will definitely be good seeing as it got sulfur (sulfur heals any skin problems)..but since Aspirin Mask works for me..i don't see myself buying the mask..maybe sometime... XD
Hope this month's Splurge & Save post will help you in combating those pesky zits.
I also made a post before about pimple treatment..you can read it HERE, if you want to.
Until next month's Splurge & Save
Hope everybody will have a lovely week ahead!
