Remember how I said I felt like I’ve only been giving negative reviews lately? Well I’m happy to finally have found something good to say about something! 🙂 So, I tried the Liberty’s redeemable Dr Sebagh facial and it was so AMAZING, I couldn’t help raving about it to my friend, P. I didn’t know that P had used it before, but she told me their zit treatment’s good so despite having already bought 2 products from them (to cover the redeemable facial :P) I ended up going back for it.
What I liked
I normally have a really difficult time finding pimple creams that work on me. (In fact, I just gave the Burt’s Bee’s one a bad review last week :P) I’ve since tested this cream on a few spots and it’s done the trick! Having said that, DON’T expect flawless skin after applying it!
Zits 1 & 2: after 1-2 application, was MUCH reduced in size, However, even after 1 week of usage, is not totally gone. There’s a red mark and you can feel a little bump on the skin. Here’s a picture of it. (Urgh, this is doing my ego no good- at such close range, you can see all my imperfections :P) Alas, the sacrifices you have to make as a blogger 😛 Fingers crossed the cream does its magic before my Christmas parties start next week 😉
Zit 3: This was more like a really red whitehead. I probably got it in the nick of time because after 1 application, it more or less disappeared. There’s a mark on the skin but I scar really, really easily. (SIGH)
Another thing I thought was great is the pump applicator! I know I just dissed Omorovicza’s moisturiser for their pump mechanism but these are 2 totally different things. Firstly, when you’re working on zits, you really want to keep things clean. And a pump means I don’t have to double dip/ worry about bacterial contamination. Secondly, this is a totally different type of pump to O’s- I haven’t dissected the bottle (it’s not empty yet!) but I think it’s one of those pumps that raises the base each time you pump, which means less wastage, Make sense? No? Just trust me then 🙂 This pump is better 🙂
It’s also light enough to be carried around for throughout the day top ups! 🙂 (Does more applications each day mean the zits go away faster? I wonder…)
Random fact: it has 4 5-star reviews on the Dr Sebagh sire. Having said that, I do sometimes wonder how truthful those reviews are 😛
What didn’t I like about it?
Well, in my dream world, all the zits would be 100% gone 🙂 Vanished into oblivion and having left no trace 😛 Especially for the price of £35 (!!!) Which probably makes it the most expensive spot treatment I’ve ever bought… (It’s also rather small. I wonder how long this 15 ml bottle will last me since I get zits so often! (Another Sigh here)
Also, not seen any reduced redness or pore reduction- humph!
Would I get it again?
I’d rather pay (a lot) more for something that works than less for something that doesn’t! However, if I find something else that works, my wallet will thank me for switching 😛
