First let me apologise for the blur image of the product on the left. 🙂 As you can see I’m clearly not that good in the photography department (HAHAHA!!) Anyway, here’s my other Dr. Wu product that I absolutely love – for my acne of course. I had previously blogged about the Dr. Wu Mandelic Acid product that helps to remove dead skin cells without causing irritation to my sensitive skin. this is yet another product that I would recommend to those who want to treat their pimples and pus-oozing acnes (okay I’m being too graphic).
About the Product
From the Dr Wu website in Singapore, it states that this is an award winning product. It goes on to say that “DR.WU’s unique ACNECUR formula is clinically proven to clear up blemishes and also visibly reduce blemish marks. This revolutionary blemish treatment contains a blemish-fighting complex, Bio-Sulfur and Salicylic Acid, to reduce and prevent acne problems in all stages and also helps existing pimples and acne disappear quickly. It also contains high potency Niacinamide (B3) and Tranexamic Acid to even out skin tone and visibly reduce marks left behind by blemishes.” The benefits of the main ingredients are as follows:
Niacinamide (B3): Its anti-inflammatory properties help to soothe the skin and promote skin rejuvenation.
Sulphur: A vital mineral that is a natural antiseptic with healing and anti-inflammatory properties.
Tranexamic Acid: A whitening ingredient known to prevent spots and blemishes.
Salicylic Acid: An effective acne treatment ingredient that helps to clear and prevent pimples.
The key ingredients in the product are: Niacinamide, Sulfur, Tranexamic Acid, Salicylic Acid,
Target: Oily and Acne Prone Skin
Using The Product
I usually will apply this product in small quantities on the inflammed pimple or pus-filled acne. This product will not work well with acne that is just severely inflammed and has no sign of pus coming out. The product will dry out the pus and it will come off by itself when you wash your face etc. There is no need to use our itchy fingers to peel it off. Remember, peeling it off means scars!! This product is safe if you apply 1-3 times a day (ie morning, noon and night) but so far, I’ve only applied it at night coz I do not want to dry out my acne too much. It contains BHA so please wear sunscreen if you are applying this in the day time.
Where to Buy the Product
In Singapore, you can by this product from Watsons. Or buy them when you’re in Taiwan!
