Yes, yes, I know that everyone and their momma has raved and blogged about Ly-Na Pearl Cream, but this seriously is a holy grail. I don't use it as much as my sister does but she swears by it and so do I.
I use it when I have a few pimples that I want to zap, but I try to use it every other night, or at least 3 times a week to maintain that "glow". It's basically a medicated paste, and I actually remember my grandma using it all the time when I was younger and I see why! This stuff works miracles!
As a beauty blogger, essentially my curiosity leads me to try different things on my face (skincare, foundations, moisturizers, etc) so my skin can take a beating at times, and doesn't react all that great to certain things...and when I apply the Ly-Na Pearl Cream at night for a few days, my skin dramatically clears up and is back to normal.
- Cheap! Only $3 a jar!
- It really worked for my sister, minimized her scars and pimples, and it calms my skin down when it gets crazy, as well as giving a nice glow!
- I like the smell of it
- I like how it's a night-type of a treatment, makes me feel like it has a longer time to "do it's thing", and then I just rinse off in the morning!
- The jar packing itself is pretty cheap, it's also very shallow so you don't get as much product in comparison to the size of the jar- but hey it's $3
