[REVIEW] How To Treat Cystic Acne: Rojukiss Enca AC Drying Pinky Powder
I. Hate. Acne. So. Much.
Especially cystic acne.
I suffered from cystic acne last month, 5 acne on my cheek (oh my God)! Not that I have an acne-prone skin, I usually have acne only when my period comes. And I only have about 1-2, normally, and it is quite rare having a lot of cystic acne at once. So… yeah, I was kinda freaked out and took a rush searching for acne holy grail and bought this one
For your information, before I got this, I used Pond’s Acne Solution Anti Acne Daily Expert Moisturizer and Tea Tree Oil but it caused the acne spot drying and making flaky skin. There were several reviews about Rojukiss Enca and every blog that I read claimed this one do not make your skin dry. Well, so this is my version how to treat cystic acne.
Rojukiss Enca AC Drying Pinky Powder
The packaging itself is from glass bottle. You’ll be surprised by how tiny this product. It is only 15 ml! As you take a closer look, there are two types of materials in this transparent bottle: liquid materials and similarly materials pink-colored powder that settles down.
Isopropyl Alcohol, Calamine, Water, Glycerin, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Oxide, Camphor, Beta Vulgaris (Beet Root Extract), Chamaecyparis Obtusa Leaf Extract, Niacinamide, Portulaca Oleracea Extracea, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Extract, Salicylic Acid, Sulfur, Methylparaben
What You Should Know About Ingredients
If you often having acne, you’ll familiar with salicylic acid. Salicylic acid can help clear breakouts and prevent future trouble spots. But it also can make your skin drier. I then look for another acne product and finally found the fact that calamine can also help eliminate acne.
What is calamine? Calamine lotion is a mixture made from a combination of the two ingredients are zinc oxide and iron oxide. Pink calamine lotion and intangible creamy. In the case of acne, the provision of calamine lotion will absorb excess sebum and make acne sores dry faster. This lotion also has anti-bacterial properties that will prevent acne more and more and getting worse. Voila.
Portulaca Oleracea also can help to sooth acne spots immediately. These are 3 key ingredients for how wonderful this product is!
How To Use
1. Do not shake the bottle! It is important to keep the liquid and the powder separate from each other, as it will not work properly.
2. I usually use Q-tip to apply the powder, just dip slightly the head of Q-tip. Tap gently to your skin.
I use this at night (sometimes at noon), the powder is so pink! I ever forgot that I still had several pink dots around my face when suddenly the delivery package man came . So be careful!
What This Product Tell Us
I was gonna admitted I love it so much, yet I couldn’t because it didn’t work fantastically to cure cystic acne. Yeah, what was I expecting anyway, cystic acne is the most evil creature that ever lived on my face . It took 2 months so my cystic acne be deflated. But I can assure that it worked lovely if you just have papula about 1-3 days.
For 15ml is quite pricey. I bought this from Shopee for Rp 165k. Wishtrend stop their selling for this, my heart sinks since most online sellers got it from there. But you also can find it at Hello Sora for higher price. Actually there is a similar one like this from Mario Badescu, sold for Rp 350k. Yes, it has more amount than Rojukiss (29 ml). Those two have the same effect so it is better to buy the cheaper one
Will I Repurchase?
Will try another. But have to get this finish first!
