I truly thought acne ended after puberty and reality bit me in my butt. Cystic and Hormonal acne has been talked about a lot on this blog. Not to mention, I have been dealing with it for what seems like forever.
Of course, I’ve talked about Accutane, antibiotics, and Spironolactone. And, the acne products that I have utilized — Neutrogena, The Body Shop, Aveeno, Murad, etc.
It’s been a long battle with acne. You’ll probably float across old posts with my broken out face.
All things considered, I’m wary about what I put on my face these days. I’ve found a routine that works and keeps my skin clear for the most part. Sure, I have my bad days but other people have those days, as well.
All in all, I don’t like to try new things when it comes to skincare unless the reviews are raving.
Allow me to introduce…
The Zitsticka Killa.
I just started using this product and I’m impressed by overnight results. Many things aren’t fast-acting when it comes to acne. You have to wait days and days for a cyst to shrink and it an make its appearance in important photos or events. Overall, a cyst/hormonal acne is not cool and likes to appear at awful times.
I’m very picky with my skincare, as I mentioned above but this product isn’t something I have to smear all over my face and hope for the best. It targets the specific zit that I want to go away which is positive.
So, what is it?
So, KILLA is a zit patch with micro-dart technology that floods those pesky nodules and combats them. They attack the early-stage of your zit with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid, OG-76, niacinamide, and sodium hydroxide. All have different attributes to fighting the zit, redness, balancing ph balances, and moisturizing. The idea of darts on your face might sound scary but I promise that it does not hurt. It might pinch but I didn’t think it was too bad.
It’s a two-step process where you need to clean the area first with the CLEANA wipes. These wipes have tea tree oil (great for cystic acne!!), vitamin E, alcohol, and salicylic acid in them so your product is already at work before you put the dart on. Once you clean the area, place your dart on and feel the mini tingles. It doesn’t feel bad, at all. You can leave it on to dissolve for two hours or overnight — I prefer overnight as I think I get the best benefits from that option. Everyone is different, though.
Is it for specific acne-types?
KILLA is advertised for the zits that are hard to reach and greet you in the morning. To me, that means the cystic acne before they take over.
The blind, unidentifiable, hard-to-reach ones that greet you first thing in the morning. The deep shiners that pulse like a bass line. The early-stage, upcoming ones that previously left you helpless. The type that creams will struggle to access.
I know that when I had cystic acne, I could feel them as they started but my only solution was to do warm compressions. These KILLA darts are heaven-sent. I wish I had them when I was in college where the stress and hormones were really raging on my face.
Do I recommend?
I would say, yes. These would be on a list that I recommend to people as I know that there are many people out there looking for a solution.
So far, I’ve had a great experience. My face reacts to things from time to time like getting super red or flaky and I have yet to have that happen. I’m enjoying the KILLA product and hope there’s a subscription or bigger pack that comes out. I don’t get cysts all the time but when I get one, I get another.
It’s not hard to use and you don’t have to apply multiple products to your face as you have a micro-dart that is filled with different acne agents. That might be my favorite thing about this product because I am so used to slathering my face with multiple products. It goes on easy and comes off easy, I have no complaints!
If you have any questions go ahead and leave them in the comments and I’ll try my best to answer them. I don’t have all the answers but I can share my experience.
