In the previous post, you’ll be able to see my review on Sloane Inc. Skin Superfood Pumpkin Enzyme Purifying Peel and it has been treating my skin well. On the same timeline, I’m also using Sloane Inc Complexion Corrector Clarity where it is a serum that has active ingredient of Salicylic Acid which be able to help to clear impurities and acne.
‘Exclusively formulated to clear up blackheads, refine pore, reduce skin oiliness and acne, while hydrating skin from within.
This deep pore clearing serum contains beta hydroxy acids which works as a natural skin exfoliant by removing blackhead-causing bacteria from the pores while skin softening hyaluronic acid hydrates and smoothens dull, dehydrated skin, minimizing the appearance of fine lines. This combination provides an unique yet synergistic skin balancing and clarifying action to clear up acne and skin blemishes, minimize pore size and regulate healthy cell turnover, while cleverly delivering long term anti-ageing benefits, smoothing rough skin texture and fine lines.’
I like how the bottle look clean and still professionally packaged. Notice the inner tube looked like a capsule since the base is rounded?
This is the view from the top of the pump and if you look closely, there is an ‘on’ and ‘off’ label. The pump is specially made to be able to dispense product and to be able to turn to lock the product. Whenever I use it, I could just turn it to ‘on’ and I will be able to dispense the product and turn to ‘off’ when I’m done using it. I think this is a good idea in terms that it is convenient, no cap needed and easy to use.
There isn’t any ingredients listing stated on the box or bottle neither do their website. Through the description, I understand that it does contain AHA, BHA and salicylic acid.
This is the amount of 1 pump and I usually apply this amount daily for day and night. From the photo above, it may look like it’s all clear, translucent and watery texture. If you look closely, it is a mix of liquid and gel consistency. I thought the color was all clear and translucent until in the mid of second week of using it, where some of the product got dried up at the mouth of the pump. The dried up product shows that it is in a very light turquoise color. This serum has very strong alcohol scent but it doesn’t dry out my skin at all and it mattifies. It did helped in controlling oil for a few hours (approximately 3-4 hours on tropical weather).
Over the course of 4 weeks, I have noticed that my skin becomes clearer from time to time. It also appears brighter and less dull. However, this serum didn’t prevent all the blemishes because I was breaking out from another product and the serum wasn’t able to prevent it from happening. Most of the breakouts is focused on the lower portion of my face.
Here would be the comparison of before and after using it for a month. Besides the breakout, my pores seems to be less dilated and it is noticeable on the forehead and cheek area.
I didn’t really fancy the scent from the very beginning because of the strong alcohol scent. Even so, it doesn’t make my skin felt dry at all. It contains 2% of salicylic acid, therefore I do not recommend for those who have sensitive skin because it can be too harsh for your skin. This will be suitable for those who has acne-prone with combination to oily skin type.
There is a slight reduction of sebum and I have noticed it from doing sebum extraction. This serum did not completely put a stop to the sebum production but it managed to reduce it. As far as it claims for anti-ageing, I do notice that my skin texture improved periodically as they look much more smoother than before. For fine lines, I’m yet to be able to tell as I do not have any noticeable ones to compare with.
I have already put a stop to the product that broke me out and still continuing to use this serum. The acnes on the lower portion of my face is subsiding slowly. Hopefully by another 2 weeks, it will help to completely to clear the acne away.
