Review: Ayla Beauty Medik8 Acne Beta Gel – Is it a ripoff? Does it work?
So I bought this really expensive Ayla Beauty Medik8 BetaGel for an obscene amount of money and used the entire tube.
Lots of beauty editors recommended this…. or at least, one did.
It smelled very medical. I mean it had a pretty strong smell to it which I think is part of its appeal of being very medical & therefore effective, I mean even the byline “Skincare Biotechnology” tries to pull that image back in.
The product is kind of watery, it’s clear, and very “medical”.. true to its name. It spreads on pretty thinly, it’s not thick at all.
DID IT REDUCE MY ACNE SCARS?
No. It didn’t fade them at all.
DID IT REDUCE MY REDNESS?
Nope. I used the entire tube and it didn’t do jack.
DID IT HELP REDUCE MY ACNE?
No. In fact, I used it on areas I knew were acne-prone and I woke up with pimples the next day in those spots.
DID IT DO ANYTHING?
Yes, it burned my skin slightly which I take it to mean it irritated it.. which is probably why I got a pimple in that spot the next day.
Don’t waste your money. I already did it for you.
What really works is Paula’s Choice and I’ve written out my entire regimen here for your perusal – The Acne Journey and The Acne-Free Regimen.
