This Product Cured My Sister’s Maskne

If you’re on the lookout for a quick-acting remedy for your maskne, the By Wishtrend Sulfur 3% Clean Gel is one you should consider. Scroll down below to see (in photos) my sister’s amazing before-and-after skin transformation. 

For some of us, acne isn’t just a one-time thing. If you belong to the oily-acne prone skin category, it’s good to be armed with a spot treatment at all times. This is especially true on days when a zit pops out of nowhere.

I gave my sister, Anna, the pleasure of trying this product out (which is on 20% off until December 12, 2020). For reference, her skin type is oily-acne prone (just like mine). She recently experienced maskne (acne caused by wearing masks). But before we go to the effect, let’s discuss the other aspects of this treatment.

PACKAGING  

The product comes in a bright yellow tube with a nozzle tip. This type of packaging prevents the spreading of germs, unlike those which come in a jar. Plus, it also contains a whopping 30 grams of product and expires 12 months after opening. Not bad, right?

KEY INGREDIENT

Now, we go to the sciencey part — the ingredients list. This product contains sulfur, a well-known antibacterial and antifungal ingredient. Not only does it keep acne at bay, it also helps minimize sebum production. To balance out the drying effects of sulfur, the formulation of the By Wishtrend Sulfur 3% Clean Gel includes hydrating ingredients such as sodium hyaluronate and tocopherol. 

CONSISTENCY

When I asked my sister about the consistency, she said that “the gel, though a bit thick, is easily absorbed by the skin.” Thus, it’s safe to say that this product is perfect for the Philippine weather.

SCENT

For the scent, she says that “there is a faint sulfur smell that lingers — might be tolerable for some. But if you don’t like metallic smells, it might be a bit bothersome.” She advises that this is better applied at night for those who may find the smell disturbing. 

Now that that’s been discussed, let’s get into the real deal — the effect.

EFFECT

It’s sad how maskne has been a rampant issue this quarantine season. My sister was not exempted. She developed small bumps (whiteheads) due to frequent mask usage, which was a bummer. Luckily, this product came at the right moment. 

Here’s a picture of her skin before using the spot treatment:

After consistently incorporating this to her nighttime skincare routine, this is the result:

As you can see, the bumps flattened considerably after just a few applications (with the bottom one completely gone). She vouches that this is “effective as a spot treatment; spots usually go away after one to two nights.” Lightweight and effective–what more could we ask for? 

THE VERDICT

From the packaging down to its effect, it’s definitely something worth investing in. It works not only on whiteheads, but on papules, pustules, and cystic acne too.  By Wishtrend is slowly dominating our skincare stash, and we’re not complaining.
