Now, back to the main purpose of this post..my review!
I am going to review my current must-have item in my skincare routine:
Garden of Wisdom Majik Anti-PopUp Blemish Gel.
I have been using this since late last year..I think around Christmas. I joined Ida's order pooling for Garden of Wisdom last November..this is my item from the brand that I have tried..I got this because Ida swears by it that it actually helps keep acne at bay for areas that have recurrent breakouts. As you all know, my right cheek is always my problem..my whole face will be scar and pimple free but my right will be full of blemishes. So in short, I got myself a trial size to try because I can't help but wanting to try this product to help with my problem.

After using this product for more than a month, twice a day after washing my face, one drop per area of my face...here's my review:
Packaging: 4.5/5 - it comes in a plastic dropper-like container. This is very hygienic and also lightweight. The only problem I got is, I can't get every drop of the product since I can't squezze it.
Price: 3.5-4/5 - this is a little expensive for me since I was so used to buying acne prods for less than Php500 from my derma hehe..The full size of this will cost me $4.90 (around Php700) plus shipping..so I need to shell out around php1k for this.
Availability: 2/5 - This not locally available so I need to order it from their US website.. so sad :(
Quality of the Product: 5/5 -I love this product!
-very effective on preventing cystic acne erruption. It can halter the process and your supposed to erupt acne will just subside after 24hrs! to think that I have very stubborn acne.
-this is unscented in my opinion. So no overwhelming plant scent that most natural products have.
-very easy to spread. you just need a drop or two to cover the area where you have breakouts. I use this for the whole face.
-my blackheads did not appear as fast as before..so less facial time needed.
- very light and easily absorbed.
-hygienic and sturdy container.
-did not help much on my small bumps..it worked for big cystic ones but not on pimples.
-best to store inside a refrigerator to prolong shelf life and also the cooling effect helps lessen the inflammation, if you have any.
Will I repurchase? YES! YES! YES! I'll be getting the full size soon.
I am just so happy that even though I ate so much oily foods and had a lot of very late-night sleep and stress during the holiday season, I did not get a huge zit on my cheek!
Thank you, Ida! for introducing me to this product ^_^
By the way, I'm glad that at least I can now post once or twice a week instead of nothing at all hehe...thank you for still dropping by my blog ^_^
Till next time! Bye! ^_^
