Skin type: Oily, sensitive and acne prone
Skin tone: Fair to Medium
Hope you all are doing well. Taking care of oily and acne prone skin is a real task. Today, I want to talk about this anti acne serum from the house of Ericson Laboratoire, which I discovered, bought and used throughout 2017. It is one of those brands that I am still discovering and falling in love with as I continue on my quest to achieve my best skin possible. Having just run out of this serum, I thought I would share my opinion with you.
Price: $99 for 15ml
Anti-Acne Serum is suitable as SOS product. It can be used under Sebo-Cream or Sebo-Gel. It is an anti-acne serum with a strong concentration of drugs that can be applied locally. It reduces pimples, eaters, inflammation and excessive sebum.
Anti-acne Sebo-Serum uses one month each evening for the best results. It contains Dermapur which acts as a natural antibiotic and inhibits the development of bacteria. Acnetis is an ingredient derived from Bio technology and ignites inflammation, excessive sebum and bacteria.
The anti-acne serum also contains vitamin A and Calendula extracts that help restore skin and reduce swelling.
Directions: Massage 2-3 drops onto freshly-cleansed skin, avoiding the immediate eye area both A.M and P.M. Can be worn alone or under moisturizer.
My Experience with Ericson Laboratoire Acti-Biotic Sebo-Serum:
Packaging: I love the translucent glass bottle this serum comes in. It comes with a dropper and it works pretty well. You just need two drops for your entire face and neck. I’m not sure if my bottle is faulty, but I find it hard to depress the squeeze top enough to pick up the serum. Other than this, I feel the packaging justifies its price. It’s quite light to carry around but being a glass bottle, you need to be careful while handling and traveling with it.
I have acne prone skin with post inflammation hyperpigmentation and it has been my goal to nourish my skin to health through using gentle yet effective products to target my problem areas. Despite my sensitive skin being more on the oily side, I also have issues with flakiness and through lots of trial and error, I find that it actually behaves better taking on a more balanced tone when I add serum to my skin care regimen.
While my daytime skin routine is fairly simple, I really like to pamper myself and take the day off before bed. I pat it onto my cleansed and toned face before hitting the bed. This serum is fairly colorless and has a slight but pleasant botanical fragrance that fades soon after application. It does have a watery consistency but the push-button dropper makes dispensing the product very easy. It sinks into my skin as soon as it is applied, leaving it all matte yet hydrated. I love the way my skin feels so glowy and matte with absolutely no traces of oil sebum on my face when I wake up in the morning.
In just one week of regular nightly use, I have noticed a huge reduction in the occurrence of whiteheads, blackheads, and zits. My existing acne also seems to fade away on regular usage. This product has not helped much with my hyperpigmentation nor does it claim to, but my skin is increasingly bright, glowy and toned.
I absolutely love this serum for the way it’s working for my skin.
