During the Christmas Season the lovely people at R8 Beauty where holding loads of Give Aways or Sweepstakes as they are called and I was lucky enough to win one of the Karin Herzog Face Creams. The product is called Vita-A-Kombi 3 and it is a face cream that you put over areas where you are having blemishes or break outs. I was thrilled at the idea of such a product as I have very acne prone skin and it is also very sensitive.
I’d never tried any of the products from this brand and to tell you the truth had never even heard about the brand before I saw the products on the R8 Beauty Facebook page HERE. Therefore when I received the face cream in the first weeks of January I went onto the Karin Herzog website and looked at the description given for this product HERE.
What they say on their website:
A simple and extremely effective natural way to banish spots, cold sores, boils blisters, pigmentation etc. Using Vita-A-Kombi 3 directly on to the area to be treated allows the drawing effect of the oxygen will work like a vacuum to literally VAK the spot off. Acne cream containing 3% oxygen and vitamins A & E.
This cream is not like any other blemish cream that I have. After reading through the leaflet that came with it, I found that you can either apply it to your blemishes and leave it there or wipe it off as the product is immediately absorbed into the skin. This contains hydrogen peroxide which is really good for clearing up acne from the skin and delivers oxygen that is required by the skin. The jar contains 16ml and on the site it retails for £21.50, which is quite pricey for me!
What I usually do is use it at night before I go to bed. I gently pat it onto blemishes on my face and let it to sit there. I have not seen any break outs because of this product which is always a good thing since my skin is so sensitive. The product itself is very thick but easily absorbed by the skin. A little goes a long way and once absorbed it leaves the skin a little dewy but not too much. However, I would not apply makeup on top of it and would not use it during the day if going out as I’m sure it would look too shiny for me.
I have seen some results with this cream, that is my blemishes are still visible, however I must say that after applying this product regularly the amount of breakouts has diminished a lot and blemishes that were there are either slowly getting better or at least not getting any worst. I will keep using this product as I think it will help me to fight against the marks that acne leaves behind on my skin and that take so long to fade away.
