After hearing a glowing recommendation about the Lion Pair Acne Cream over on Tina Tanaka Harris’ YouTube channel, I felt extremely compelled to buy. This review comes after almost finishing my second tube. Safe to say, I absolutely love this stuff. If you haven’t already, be sure to try the best Japanese acne spot treatment – the Lion Pair Acne Cream.
This cream contains two ingredients that help with acne – neither of which I can pronounce. Ibuprofen piconol and isopropyl methylphenol are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, and can therefore work to minimise breakouts. It’s a nice light cream texture that can be layered underneath a moisturiser in your skincare routine.
You can use it both when a spot comes up, or just as a preventative measure if you know you get hormonal breakouts at certain times of the month. You don’t have to worry about using it too often – it’s gentle enough to use morning and night. Although gentle, this cream is quick to clear up spots, and all without drying out your skin. However, because of this, it may not be suited for those with cystic acne. Put this acne spot treatment on your skincare wishlist, give it a go, and tell me it’s not the best you’ve tried.
