Product Review: Sonya Dakar Drying Potion
MIRACLE PRODUCT: Sonya Dakar Drying Potion ($25)
THEY SAY: Known as "Hollywood's secret weapon," the emergency solution is forumlated with dead sea sulfur to reduce puffiness and redness and lavender to calm breakouts and prompt speedy healing.
WE SAY: Keep reading for reviews from the editors.
Pros: For such a potent zit cream, it smelled divine! It didn't irritate my sensitive skin at all, and I did notice that it reduced redness and pimple size overnight. The applicator made the process sanitary and easy.
Cons: It stung a little bit. It also didn't completely absorb into my skin. I'm used to a serum that works just as great and doesn't leave behind residue.
Pros: I knew that the product was supposed to sting, but it was so minor that it didn't bother me at all. I love that it came with an applicator for easy use and dried quickly.
Cons: I didn't see much of a reduction in redness or size, but my breakouts are generally difficult to treat. I also had to be careful with how much I used or the product would get flaky.
Pros: I put a little on my chin right before bed, and the next morning, my pimple was barely noticeable. The potion goes on white but dried clear after a little bit, which was a big plus.
Cons: Your skin tingles and burns a little when you first apply the potion.
Bottom Line: The emergency solution was a great spot treatment when we needed a quick fix—plus that minor sting let us know it worked!
