Advantages Can clear up spots in days, doesn't dry the skin out like some similar products.
Disadvantages Could have a bad reaction, loses it's potency, quite expensive for the amount you recieve.
Heading into my late teens I began to notice the terrible acne I had in my younger years gradually start to improve which was an immense relief - the only problem left however, was the kind of random, giant spot that turns up overnight anywhere on your face and then asks it's friends to join it the following day!I could never find a way to battle these kinds of spots which would inevitably leave marks behind, and after trying nearly every "on the spot" product on the market and on the brink of giving up, Freederm appeared on the scene like music to my ears!
No more applying lotions that would dry a spot into a giant scab you would need to cook up a miracle to hide, this product promised a "new approach to acne treatment" so on a particularly bad day my mum went out to buy some on my behalf and back she came 20 minutes later with my purse £8.95 lighter - but hey, if it works money is no object(-ish)!Description:
Freederm doesn't sting, and dries in about 10 minutes on average - so you might have to lie on your back for a short while and catch some T.V! The after-effects are minimal, I didn't notice any significant redness although you normally see a small "patch" (for want of a better word!) which looks a bit shiny, which I expect is due to the product doing it's work, but it's not noticeable in any way.After a about a week, I thought it was so good I began using it frequently, even on spots I wouldn't usually bother with, although I did notice over time it began working less successfully.
Then came the tragedy...that summer was scorching hot and one day after using it I spent a whole afternoon outside in the sun. I returned home to discover a rash - nothing too severe at first but over the hours it progressed into something absolutely awful. At first I thought it was a coincidence but after visiting a doctor and throwing out most of my other beauty products I found out Freederm had given me photosensitivity. I decided to wait until summer was over to start using it again, but despite a lack of sunshine, the same rash crept up on my face again and again and again - albeit in lesser degrees but sadly too noticeable for me to continue using it.Conclusion:
Definitely worth trying though.£8.95 from Boots or Superdrug.
