Post No. 2

Hi guys, I hope you are all doing well.

Today I want to review the Kojic Clear Tube Cream. I got to know about this from a girl I met during my NYSC camp. According to her, this tube cream gave the effects of retinol but without having to spend as much for a retinol cream. She also said it helps with her reactions each she has any and I decided to, as usual, give it a try.

The cream says it is active against acute dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, prurigo, local inflammatory, and allergic reactions. It stimulates the cutaneous system bringing the skin to its normal physiological condition.

My Experience

There’s a love-hate relationship between me and this product but it works.  I used it to clear out some reactions I had from a change of water, environment and those that I got from the Goji berry serum I used too. The hate part is the chemicals, they are way too much that scares me and it smells very strong. It contains clobetasol, which from my findings is a steroid and long term use of steroids is not advised.

So, what I did was, I mixed a small squeeze of this with my White secret face cream and used it only when necessary. Only when I had a reaction or breakouts but on other days, I just use my body lotion on my face. Yes,  I know it’s not advisable but I prefer it to strong chemicals and steroids on my face every day.

Pros:

  • Works well for any form of reactions including eczema.
  • Affordable and long-lasting. I still have an unfinished tube which I don’t see myself using in a while.
  • Helped in smoothening my face in general.

Cons:

  • Contains steroids.
  • It has a strong chemical smell.
  • Made my skin very sensitive to sunlight.
  • In some cases, it can thin out the top layer of your skin with consistent usage.

Rating: 6/10

You can use directly on your skin but I could not do that due to the sensitive nature of my skin, hence the mixing with my face cream. USE ONLY AT NIGHT!!! When I used this during the day and went out in the sun, it felt like I would burn. Use only at night and stop when whatever you are trying to cure has been cured. This is a steroid and it’s advisable to use this short term. I cannot emphasize this enough. This does not take away the fact that this cream works well but be also very very careful.

Finally, it’s obvious you have no business blogging about skincare. The cream is obviously a steroid cream, not even a drop of Kojic acid, but the name is Kojic clear and as a skincare blogger, you should be able to determine it is Pure steroid cream with normal fillers.

And to make matters worse you are mixing it with White secret cream….hahahah… you are not looking for lightening; I guess you are seeking thunderstorms 🤣🤣🤣

Would it be too much to ask to advice you to pls do your research before you post information on the internet… Pls.

Thanks anyways for posting a photo of the ingredients, you are the only one who has served this purpose.

    Hi Tiana,
    It would also be nice before you come and make comments, that you read the post and understand. Do note that in the post I made no mention of it containing kojic acid and that I used it to cure my reactions on my face.

    I also mentioned that I couldn’t use it directly on my face because of how strong it was. CLobetasol is the main ingredient in Kojic clear cream and it is usually recommended by even Dermatologists for reactions like Dermatitis. Clobetasol is a steroid and I mentioned it in the cons list and also as a reason for disliking the product.

    I went further to mention stopping usage when the reactions you are trying to treat are cured.

    Madam, everyone’s skin is different and it worked for what I need it for and I stopped use afterward.
    Before you go spilling unsolicited and rude comments on posts, read and digest first Tiana so you don’t end up sounding as uninformed as you do now.
