I struggle with adult and hormonal acne, this has caused hyperpigmentation and acne scars. Finding the best product is challenging since my skin is oily but also sensitive, meaning I get many negative reactions to some products.
A few years back I purchased 2 Korean skincare products, a makeup oil, and cleanser. After seeing my skin looking better I started my research more on Korean beauty. Doing so I found out the benefits of AHA and BHA right away I was hopeful this might work for me.
I want to share I had many prescribed ointment and medications from my dermatologist and nothing seem to work. So you can understand why I had lost hope of improving my skin. After changing my skincare routine I notice a huge improvement in my skin.
My first AHA & BHA products I tried were the Ordinary at first I did see a small change but then it got worst. So I stopped using the products. That was when I started my Korean Beauty search and discover Honeymoon Glow.
Knowing how expensive it was I wonder if I would see a change especially when things don’t work great on my skin. But I was hopeful due to the raves and the benefits this product offers. I started to use this product around November 2018 and almost a year later I am very pleased with how my skin looks and feel.
I notice acne scars are less visible, my skin looks more radiant (in fact I didn’t realize how dull my skin was until I started to use a toner with BHA). My acne is more control and I rarely get hyperpigmentation from the acne on my skin. I am very pleased with the Cleanser and Honeymoon Glow (I use as my toner at night)
Since I have sensitive skin, I started to use this product 3 times a week, at first I felt a slight tingle, after that first week now I barely feel it. I apply it as my toner only at night. In occasions when I see my skin has a few breakouts then I wear it 5 times that week. All I use is 1 to 2 pumps and that is enough for my skin. The product doesn’t feel greasy, heavy and it barely has a scent. I love how much my skin has turned around just using the right products even if it cost a bit more.

The Farmacy Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser feels so nice on the skin, I love it contains honey and other ingredients great for acne.
