Nixoderm (Acne Treatment) Review

A few months ago my dad went back to Malaysia & brought back this acne treatment.
My acne was getting pretty bad recently so I was pretty happy to have something new to try.

Nixoderm is a treatment for various skin problems as listed below

"Used externally for pimples, blackheads, itching, rashes, ringworm of the skin and scalp."

Benzoic Acid 6% w/w
Salicylic Acid 2.5% w/w
Precipitated Sulphur 4.6% w/w

These ingredients help exfoliate the skin & get rid of bacteria.
Some nice advice is also included~


INSTRUCTIONS: Apply twice daily (morning & evening) for 7 days, then discontinue for 3 days & repeat if necessary.
Applying a thin layer of petroleum jelly will reduce stinging for sensitive skin.

Nixoderm is is a thick white paste which is slightly greasy/oily feeling. I only apply it at night, because if I go out I don't like to use this under makeup.
I've used this product for a few months & it is pretty effective for pimples. It really dries them out & brings them to the surface if you have "underground" pimples like me. It's actually a bit gross because when I apply it at night & wake up in the morning, the pimple is huge . . & crusty? haha sorry gross but that's what acne is = =;;  Either that or it's reduced in size.
The paste can really sting/itch/burn but I got used to it & didn't find it too bad. (I was too lazy for the petroleum jelly =o=;;) It also has weird smell but I don't really mind.
This product seems to work better for me than popular acne treatment brands like Clean & Clear's benzoyl peroxide persagel or salicylic spot treatment.
Although I'm usually not a fan of tub/jar packaging, I think it would be hard to put this in a tube since it's so thick.

I'm not sure if it works on my cystic acne, because those take forever to get rid of. TT-TT

- helps reduce & dry out acne
- good spot treatment for acne to bring them to the surface
- cheap price (RM 5.90 ~ CDN $2.00 )
- no added fragrance ^^

- stings skin & can cause redness upon application
- can be drying for skin
- can usually only be used at night unless you want to go out with white patches
- not available locally in Canada

Overall this is a great acne product that you should try if you have the chance. It's really inexpensive & effective against pimples while being able to treat other skin problems too (although I haven't used it for anything else o-o)

Thanks to my relatives who recommended this product to my dad ^^

Anime Revolution @ VCC Saturday, Aug 17, 2013

Hi guys, here is probably the worst post on Anime Revolution 2013 because I suck. Enjoy.

 Goku!! Never watched the anime though

Is this Hastune Miku or Senkaku Mei?


Does anyone know what this is?! ;o;

 Can you spot the Snk cosplayers?

 Kuroko no Basuke cosplayers ;o; (facepalm bc I was too shy to ask them for proper pic lol)

 Bunny ears!

"Master Chief" - A google search says they are from Halo!
I wouldn't have known otherwise. There were a bunch of people crowding around to take their pictures outside the convention center.

To be honest, I thought that there would be a lot more things inside the center but there wasn't, so it was kind of a disappointment. I didn't take many pictures either because there wasn't much imo.
I guess after seeing some videos of Comic Con I thought it would be like that but maybe that's unrealistic XD

There were a lot of vendors with nice items but I wasn't really into it & it was super expensive.
I saw doujinshi's for sale! They had yaoi (¬‿¬), hetero, R-18 & others. I wanted to look through them but the woman shooed me away because she was still arranging things LOL but it's ok because I could not imagine buying a tiny doujinshi for $22?? ( ̄个 ̄)

I saw body pillows for sale!! But they were tiny. And female. PFTT where are my Snk & Kurobasu pillows! I mean, don't you want a disheveled Jean or Eren or Levi in your arms urhurhurhur . . . I think I would enjoy "boyfriend shirt Eren". anyway.

There was a lot of great artwork for sale by artists & I was so tempted to buy a Free!, Shingeki no Kyojin & Kuroko no Basuke poster!!! argh but I am about 3 steps away from being a hobo so I'll just enjoy art online lol.

The maid cafe looked kind of awkward. Why did I think that there would be decorations on the outside?? If you went in that area you would hear lots of squealing voices. And see cute maid outfits ;o;

I don't understand how people can go there for so long, & 3 days in a row (⊙ω⊙)

I admit I was done walking around after about 1 hour. But then again I'm not really super into anime. I mean they had gaming rooms & discussion places but that required social contact with strangers so . . (A discussion about Free! Swimming Anime was taking place I think. omg what is there to talk about, they are hot & borderline homo with wonderful friendships & that is lovely)

If you were expecting nice cosplay pictures, sorry! >< I only went there for 2 hrs until my friend had to go to work. By the end of 2 hours my back was killing me (results of sitting at my computer everyday for almost 2 months, almost all day)

Erm so yeah, that was the 1st time I actually kind of hung out with a friend outside of my house all summer & it was only for 2 hours lol. It was fun~ Thanks to my friend & her boss ^^
