Hey guys, long time no see! This week I’m back with a review of By Wishtrend’s TECA Barrier cream and their Clear Skin Shield Patch which I’ve been testing out for a couple of weeks now.
When I saw Wishtrend launch these two I instantly added them right to the top of my wishlist because there is nothing I love more than spot treatments and pimple patches.
So let’s get to the review!
First up we have their Clear Skin Shield Patch which costs $12 on their website.
It includes 3 sheets of patches in 2 sizes, 14 mm and 12mm ( you get two of this size) which add up to 36 in total. I really like that the patches all come in separate packaging with labels denoting their size, since usually, acne patches just have the loose sheets inside, which can make it difficult to determine which size is which.
I’ve used these patches on a ton of my pimples and found that every time I used these, they got the job done i.e. suck out all the gunk, on the first patch. Usually, with other patches, I have to use 2-3 patches per pimple so only needing one helps make these more cost-effective.
Overall I really think these are worth it, their price is nicely centered in the middle, and Wishtrend has had multiple sales on their website where you can get these for free with your order or get 2 for the price of one!
After using the patch I used Wishtrend’s TECA Barrier Cream
This spot treatment (which costs $27.50) is unlike any other spot treatment I’ve used before because they recommend to use it on a popped pimple. I’ve heard all my life that popping pimples is on of the cardinal sins of skincare so I made sure to pop my pimple the “right” way by using a lancet instead of my grubby hands.
Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Cyclopentasiloxane, Ethyl Hexanediol, Cyclohexasiloxane, Asiaticoside, Madecassic Acid, Asiatic Acid, Tromethamine, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Glyceryl Caprylate, Allantoin, Disodium EDTA
This cream relies on Centella Asiatica and Allantoin to heal the skin barrier and also to prevent the formation of PIH.
I made sure to take a before and after shot and honestly, I see a big difference. My skin is super prone to PIH (basically any acne I get will leave some) and so while this wasn’t able to completely prevent it, it did noticeably lighten the PIH that did form.
Acne and PIH can set my skin back for months as I work on fading it so having a product that lightens it, in the beginning, helps shrink the time it takes for the spot to be completely gone. For that reason I completely recommend this, a little also goes a long way so while the initial $27.50 might be steep, it will last me all year.
Let me know if you use pimple patches or spot treatments and which ones are your favorite!
