Meet the pink powder treatment

that lives up to the hype

By Carolina Malis


I’m not gonna lie... I’m not a believer on skincare treatments that promise to erase breakouts  overnight. All blemishes are an open wound and there’s just no way our body can heal them in 8 hours, not even with the strongest ingredients out there.


I still remember being younger and believing toothpaste, baking soda or pure rubbing alcohol could be the solution to get rid of pimples fast. If I was in front of my younger self and I saw her do that I would literally cry in front of her while begging for her not to do that to her skin. But thankfully time made me wiser and K-Beauty showed up in my life, and since then I learned to treat my skin better and to give it time to heal and change instead of trying to rush through everything.


Now, this doesn't mean we can’t turn the process faster, because yes, we can. Some ingredients out there help get rid of acne-causing bacteria, inflammation and swelling so pimples can start their disappearing process sooner than later. You’ve probably seen many of these treatments already: from serums, to pimple patches and spot treatments, there's a huge range of actually good blemish treatments out there, but lately I’ve been using one I’m really surprised about.


You’ve probably seen these little glass bottles, half clear liquid, half pink dust. There’s many of them in the market and they all promise to get rid of pimples in the blink of an eye, but I’ve tried many of them and never really saw big changes overnight. For the past few weeks I’ve been testing Neogen’s A-Clear Soothing Pink Eraser and here’s the very first reason to love it: it claims to help soothe and clear away blemishes faster instead of promising 8-hours results, and with only that they got me halfway convinced.



This super intensive soothing and purifying treatment is formulated with calamine powder - AKA the pink thing you see floating in the bottom - which comes from Sulfur and helps relieve blemishes and all the area surrounding it, all while keeping sebum production under control. Also in the mix you’ll find salicylic acid, a powerful BHA ingredient which not only helps deeply exfoliate the skin but also dissolves toxins trapped deep down in our pores, helping unclog them for good. This way, once your pores are clearer, skin is ready to absorb the soothing ingredients contained in the formula. And last but not least, there’s also azulene in this little bottle, which is a compound extracted from chamomile which helps calm down skin by reducing redness and recovering damaged cells, plus it helps fortify our skin’s natural moisture barrier. I KNOW, a true multitasker.



Personally I like to use it when pimples turn into whiteheads as I know it can be a little too tempting to pop those, so as soon as I see one I cover it with the godsend, and while the next day I’ll still see inflammation and redness, the white head will be naturally gone.


So how do you use it? Just take a Q-tip, submerge one side on the formula and gently apply it over breakouts or troubled areas. Then just leave it overnight and wash off the next morning. Very important tip to keep in mind: YOU MUST NOT SHAKE THE BOTTLE! I know, I know, it’s very tempting to do so, but each layer of the product works separately so just slowly dip the q-tip until you reach the bottom of the bottle and then take it out.


Does it sound like what you’ve been waiting for your whole life? I know, it kinda was for me too.

Meet your fast - yet effective - spot care essentials for winter

When talking acne there’s a few things we need to keep in mind: first off, we can all have it, and for that same reason we all need to know how to keep it under control once it decides to show up. For the longest time of my life I had to struggle with having no idea how acne really worked. I went from dermatologists to dermatologist thinking they were finally gonna share the big secret behind how to get rid of it for good, but it never happened, or at least not until I turned to K-Beauty.

Sunscreen and Aging: Here’s why these are and item

You know when you joke about things but deep down you’re being serious and just hoping for someone to join you on your crazy ideas? Well, that’s me talking about wanting to create a sunscreen cult. I’m the sunscreen lady. I’m allergic to cats so cat lady wasn’t and option for me, so sunscreen it is. Since I learned how fundamental it was to wear it every single day of my life in order to have good skin I never went back. It’s a long term relationship and I know it will last forever.


NEO I TRENDING <br>The answer behind long-lasting hydration? Hyaluronic Acid!

The answer behind long-lasting hydration? Hyaluronic Acid!

You hear the term everywhere. From skincare, to supplements and even some makeup brands are using it lately. Hyaluronic acid is without a doubt part of the skincare royalty, and there’s a reason why.

Hydration is one of the main signs of a healthy complexion. In a way, all we do for our skin has a focus on keeping it hydrated. When dehydration takes over, all the other skin struggles we could be facing get worse, reason why in a nutshell, we can’t get rid of acne, wrinkles, dark spots, rosacea, eczema or any other concern if our skin is not hydrated, and here’s where Hyaluronic Acid plays a lead role.

And just like that, winter is here once again and not only my wardrobe noticed it but my skin did too. I don't know about you I'm already running through basically a whole bottle of toner a month and don't even get me started on the sometimes-insane amounts of mist I apply throughout the day. Totally #guilty of using it every single minute of my day.
