This $28 Slushy Serum Is the Next Best Thing to an Acne Prescription
It's as fun to use as it sounds.
AdvertisementI'm super sensitive to both retinol and retinol alternatives, but this one was too intriguing to pass up. It also features yuzu, which is high in vitamin C, and the brand's signature Even Out Complex, which is a plant-based complex to help with hyperpigmentation, redness, blotchiness, dark spots, and dull or sallow skin.
The brand recommends using it morning and night, but I use it only at night so I'm not overloading my skin. I prefer to use it as a serum and add another layer of moisture, but if you're oily, it's enough to quench your skin on its own. It sinks in quickly and isn't greasy, yet feels instantly plumping and soothing. And yes, the plush, cushiony texture feels as cool to use as I had hoped.
The morning I woke up after using Slushy for the first time, I was a little shocked. I'm not the type of girl who usually sees an immediate difference after trying something new. But I woke up looking brighter, more even, and it looked like my scars were already starting to fade.
While that was certainly exciting, the real thing that sold me on the serum was that, a week after initially trying it, my spiro prescription ran out. Instead of refilling it right away, I put it off for about two weeks due to the fact I simply couldn't muster up the motivation to pick up the phone. (Is the
Gleebinge making sense now?)Usually, the day I go off the medication, I start to break out again, but this time absolutely nothing happened. Every single day I woke up expecting a giant cystic pimple, and for two weeks my skin was crystal-clear. Not only wasn't I breaking out, but my scars were continuing to lighten, and my skin just looked
better.I happily left the house and attended Zoom calls without a stitch of makeup, which is something I never do. I was glowing.Bella CacciatoreSadly, a few days ago, I started breaking out with some swollen red pimples around my chin, and the serum was no match for it. But I've still noticed a reduction of whiteheads, my scars are continuing to fade, and my skin still looks overall very good—there's just more acne than there was two weeks ago.
I still can't believe it was able to hold me over that long since it's usually like night and day when I run out, and I can't wait to see how good my skin looks now that I'm reunited with my prescription. If the past two weeks were any indication, it's going to be unreal.
