Bacne no More

VMV Hypoallergenics id sweat acne and overall anti-bacterial monolaurin gel. A beta hydroxy and monolaurin clarifying skin care system.

Package says: Effectively helps manage sweat acne on body skin and other types of acne on the face + body. Complements other active id Toner and id Lotion. Disinfects hands + feet without irritating skin. Helps control shine - keeps skin more matte + fresh.

My Verdict: I love this blue bottle! It's in gel form. It totally eradicated those small bumps on my back ( you know the kind that's not really acne..more of white heads, eww!) I started having them this summer, maybe brought about by the intense heat and sweating. After just a few days of using it, the tiny bumps just dissappeared...amazing! Because it's mild, you can apply it as often as you like. Me, I apply it twice a day, after my morning shower and before I hit the sack. Just make sure it's dry 'tho before you put on your clothes. Tip: Apply, then turn your back from the electric fan =P, works all the time. It's reasonably priced too at P500.oo locally ($20 in their website)

Downside: Packaging is nice but it could've been better if it came with a gel pump..for hygienic reasons

Will I buy again: DEFINITELY! in fact I'm almost out

Hope this helps! =)

  5. Hi! Just found out about your blog and I love reading it!

    I also have the monolaurin gel from VMV which I bought a few years ago and it came with a pump that you have to attach. the pump was inside the box. How come yours didn't have one?

  6. @nikkiz, hi! i'm glad my blog is loved =)

    i bought mine from VMV months ago and it didn't come w/ a pump...hmmm, budget constraints? maybe I should check that out when i pass by one of their shops. thanks!
