I’ve been taking Pantothenic Acid Solaray pills for about 2-3 weeks now. I’m definitely going to purchase another bottle when I’m done with my current one.
To give some context about myself, I’m 20 year old, female and am experiencing mild acne. As those of you who have mild or more serious acne might know, having acne does not simply mean having breakouts.
The breakouts themselves tend to create not-so-pretty red spots and basically downgrade the texture, color and overall complexion of your skin.
I’ve tried different good-for-acne products with varying degrees of success, and it’s safe to say that Pantothenic Acid Solaray capsules have brought consistent, visible improvements for my skin.
I purchased this bottle about a month ago upon a friend’s strong recommendation and was honestly skeptical.
“There’re so many products claiming to be good for acne out there- if they worked, why would acne even be a problem for so many people?”
I’ve tried so many different methods and products that are supposed to be good for acne that I’ve become a jaded skeptic when it comes to acne products. Sighs.
But given that the tablets were veg capsules and were 100% vegan, I figured they wouldn’t do any harm even if I gave them a try. Besides, a girl can dream- of the day one day she looks into the mirror and her skin is free of acne!
To fully test the effectiveness of the capsules, I cut out the Eu Yan Sang TCM powder that I’ve been drinking with hot water (which have also done magic) and the Innisfree products I’ve been using. For almost 3 weeks I took, according to the instructions, 1 capsule a day after breakfast/lunch/dinner. (only 1 in the whole day!)
Within about 5 days, I was already seeing the effects, and so were my parents. Despite regularly going outdoors for workouts with exposure to the sun, my skin definitely looked better. The pinkness in my cheeks I have after workouts was not there anymore, and my skin color looked brighter.
As those of you with acne would know, acne skin has its ups and downs. (FYI if you can relate- you just happen to have great skin when you have nobody to meet and staying at home chilling, and your skin just has to get into trouble when you have an appointment/classes/meetings.)
So I waited, like someone who was just waiting to see my skin get back to its original state, determined not to be disappointed by high hopes.
It’s been 2-3 weeks, more than enough for the average period of my skin to experience a down after an up. And my skin is still better.
I’m still waiting to see how my skin would endure through various factors which tend to exacerbate acne, like exam period stress, but for now, I’m definitely satisfied. It’s a solid 5 out of 5.
