Hi lovelies, I hope you are doing okay.
Today, I want to talk about the infamous Funbact A cream.
Funbact A was suggested to me by both my mum and sister. I have been battling breakouts even after maintaining an almost perfect skincare routine especially with the Neutrogena Face wash and this time, it only got worse, stayed longer and I was truly desperate. Nothing seemed to work with my breakouts at the time.
Sensitive skin is a thing both I and my sister share, even though hers manifests in a different way to mine. After it was suggested, I bought it and decided to post a review on it. As per usual, before using this cream I went online to find out as much as I can about this cream and I found a whole lot! Funbact A cream, in my opinion, is the most abused cream I have come across. But!! Here’s my review.
Product Details: Funbact A is an antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory cream, a product of BLISS GVS PHARMA LTD.
Price: 500 – 1,000 naira. Price may vary based on your location. Click here to buy
Ingredients: Clotrimazole 1.0% w/w, Betamethasone Dipropionate USP equiv. to Betamethasone 0.05% w/w, Neomycin sulfate USP 0.5% w/w, Chlorocresol (preservative) USP NF 0.1% w/w, Cream base q.s.
To help with my breakouts, I used this and by 3rd day my breakouts were gone but I used it for 5 days just to clear out the skin and I stopped. My skin was brighter and smoother after.
Funbact A is a steroid cream!!!
Funbact A, in summary, is a steroid cream and steroids are strong actives so I did not need to continue use. Once my breakouts were gone, I stopped using them. Due to what I read online and the level of abuse, I decided not to mix it or use it more than needed and that’s what I advise you to do too.
This was the way I incorporated Funbact A cream into my routine.
- I washed my face with my everyday bathing soap.
- Apply my body scrub, leave on my face for a few minutes then wash off ( I do this once a week).
- Use my Neutrogena face wash again. I do this once or twice a week.
- Then apply Funbact a cream
- Also, I use my rescue oil or any oil/moisturizer to moisturize afterwards.
USE ONLY AT NIGHT!!! Also, avoid sun exposure when using Funbact A cream.
- A little is all you need, pea-size amount. If not it can feel heavy.
- Absorbs quite fast into the skin
- Effective for breakouts and other skin inflammation especially within a short period of time.
- Cheap, fast, and very effective.
- It can make you sweat.
- Can lead to skin thinning if used for a long period of time.
- Increases skin sensitivity to the sun.
- Fake ones are everywhere.

For me, it serves the purpose of clearing out breakouts, pimples, and leaves your skin clear. It is what I would describe as a quick fix for skin problems. Based on what I found online, It can also be used for dark spots (spot treatment), dark underarms, dark knees/elbows, dark knuckles, and other fungal skin infections.
Besides the above mentioned, the things that people use this cream for are just plain abuse. I found some people mix it in with their creams which is unnecessary because steroid creams are not to be used for anything more than 2 weeks. Anything after that is going to only cause damage to your skin. Most people buy this to use to lighten and bleach their skin which is wrong!!!.
Do take care of your skin and treat it well.
Until my next post!
