product that may not have been so great after all: meishoku ceracolla perfect gel. the ingredients look great, i used up an entire jar and didn't immediately order another one because i wanted to see whether it was actually making a difference to my skin... and a few days after i stopped using it, the bumpy texture on my cheeks began to even out. i never would've suspected this product, i didn't see any negative effects when i first introduced it! the only explanation i can think of is that there may not have been enough healthy skin on my cheeks for me to actually see any difference, there were a lot of scabs left behind by pimples and for some reason scabs take fucking forever to disappear from my face. seriously, i'll see people talking about tricks to get a scab to fall off after 3 days instead of 5 and i'll be like, your scabs already fall off after less than one week and you think you have a problem?? try having them stick around for weeks and weeks with no apparent progress! i have no idea what's up with that, considering that wounds on other parts of my body heal at a normal rate.
