Replace your acne facial package with Hiruscar Anti-Acne Range!

My latest facial package is finally over (yet to review) and I have since then paid extra attention to my annoying problematic skin condition. As I tend to suffer from breakouts quite often, thus acne products have always been a must-have in my skincare routine.

Since last week, I've been trying out Hiruscar's new Anti-Acne range which is a dermatological skin care formulated specially for acne prone skin. As I knew that Hiruscar can be found at Watsons and Guardian stores everywhere, thus I am quite skeptical on the end results of this range.

Why skeptical? This is because I have this mindset that local drug store products don't work as claimed, simply because most of the products that I have tried didn't work for me, after I spent my money because I got convinced by the promoters. Now, I'm a bitch and I don't purchase skin care products from local drug stores. Instead, I will purchase them online (though some might be available in drug stores), only after reading up an extensive amount of internet reviews and digging out all possible discount code that could be used at the checkout page. Cheaper, you know?

About Hiruscar Anti-Acne Range

Hiruscar Anti-Acne Range
Anyway, this Hiruscar new Anti-Acne range contains 3 products (cleanser, serum & spot gel) and the hero product is their spot gel. Hiruscar claimed to be able to "See acne improvement in 2 days! Reduce pimples and lighten spots without drying the skin." Do continue reading to see if this statement is true on me! Psst... I had quite an adventure using this range. LOL

My 3 days journey using Hiruscar Anti-Acne Range

On the first night, I did my usual skincare routine but replaced my original cleanser and acne serum with Hiruscar's. Then, I went to bed after applying a generous amount of Hiruscar Anti-Acne Pore Spot Gel on my new large pimples (acne gel is not compulsory in my routine).

The next morning, I got a shock in my life! No, not the kind of "wow, my face has healed itself!" shock, instead I was horrified that my pimples has formed up into matured volcano pus that are red and painful! Usually, I would be glad if that morning fell on a weekend, too bad it was a weekday. I was like "sh*t... How the hell am I to go office like this?!" So, I erupted those volcanoes, applied a thin layer of Hiruscar spot gel and prayed that the redness would be gone by the time I reached office. Thank god they did so my first day ended in peace.

On my second day, most of my pimples have dried up and started peeling. Again, too bad I only noticed the peels after I reached office as I don't exfoliate my skin in the morning and I only apply makeup in office. Therefore, I had a worse than usual makeup look as there were circle marks after applying cushion.

Finally, things got better! All those dried scabs came off on the third day (I did exfoliated the previous night) and my face felt smooth and looked more decent (finally viewable). There weren't many uneven red patches and most acne scars were lighter than before. Thus, I have saved quite a bit of concealer that day!

My Result After using Hiruscar Anti-Acne Range *MUST READ*

In order to complete this review, I have been using the Hiruscar for 5 working days (procrastinated in blogging so ended up testing 5 days instead of 3), using the entire set every night, but only the cleanser in the morning. For my skin condition, this range took 3 days instead of the claimed 2 days to achieve the acceptable results that I am looking for (no irritation or peeling etc). However, this set might work better on you if you do follow the instructions behind the bottles, which stated "apply 2 or 3 times per day".

Honestly, I knew that my skin condition did improved, but I never know it actually improved THAT much in just 1 week, until I took the photos, imported them into my laptop and viewed the full-size images. I don't think I need much explanation here, you can simply see both before and after photos for comparison. I'm mind-fucked. Well, I guess I might have to change my view on drug store products?

Ignore the black patches in the "before" photos, I happened to use coffee mask before applying these products on day 1. 

Again, results might vary based on individual, but I highly recommend this product for problematic skin people like me. Although the formulas are really gentle on skin and quite moisturising, I will still advise you to use Hiruscar Anti-Acne range with cautious, just to prevent any discomfort or peeling skin. Read the detailed review of respective products in next section.

Attention! Gruesome photos ahead, see only if your heart can handle!

Detail Product Reviews on Hiruscar Anti-Acne Range

Hiruscar Anti Acne Pore Purifying Cleanser ($14.90)

Hiruscar Anti-Acne Pore Purifying Cleanser ($14.90)
This water-based gel cleanser has a very gentle formula which can cleanse deeply and thoroughly, yet super moisturising as I felt no tightness on my skin. I used it for double cleansing. What I dislike about this cleanser is it's nice perfume-like fragrance which I find it a bit strong for my liking (I prefer medical fragrance or zero fragrance), although overall there wasn't any discomfort or skin irritation. I might purchase this again because I really love its cleansing power! Also, this cleanser is slightly cheaper than Eucerin's cleanser which I'm currently using.

Hiruscar Anti Acne Pore Purifying Serum ($39.90)

Hiruscar Anti-Acne Pore Purifying Serum ($39.90)
This serum is pale white and quite thick in texture. Upon application, it's a little sticky and took a while to be absorbed completely (become non-sticky), therefore I didn't apply it in the morning because I'm always in a rush. Although it's considered quite moisturising for an acne product, I will still apply my own moisturizer to keep my skin more hydrated. But I do apply this serum every night before bed so that the sebum controller in it can reduce excessive sebum overnight, as well as tighten my pores and curb acne formation. Whether I will purchase this again, will really depend on my budget for the month. Oh, I don't really like its medical fragrance that smells a bit... sour?

Hiruscar Anti-Acne Spot Gel ($19.90)

Hiruscar Anti-Acne Spot Gel ($19.90)
This hero product was really a hero in my "3 days adventure" above! This spot gel is translucent, thick but moisturising and pretty fast-absorbing in just a few dabs. After the first day where I was forced to apply it in the morning, I found that the gel didn't cause my makeup cakey, nor made my face oily with its thick texture. However, I still didn't apply this gel in the morning because I'm scared that it might form another volcano on my new pimples while I'm on my way to work. I might purchase this again since it miraculously flattened out my pimples within 3 days and also contains vitamin C that lightens my acne scars. Perhaps, I no longer need to purchase my separate vitamin C serum? One thing to take note about this spot gel is that don't spam a generous amount on your face at first try. Dab only a thin layer of gel on affected areas and see if it yields the result after a few days.


As for why Hiruscar Anti-Acne range works, I believe it's because these 3 products contain plenty of skin rejuvenation ingredients such as salicylic acid, aloe vera, MPS and multiple types of organic extracts. A detail list of ingredients in each product can be found in the list below.

All 3 products contain:

  • Salicylic acid - Sloughs away dead skin cells 
  • Aloe vera - Soothe redness 
  • MPS (Mucopolysaccharide polysulphate) - Maintains skin moisture 

Both Hiruscar Anti-Acne Pore Purifying serum and Pore spot gel also contain:

  • Chamomile Extract - Soothe and control irritated skin 
  • Artichoke Extract - Prevents dryness and enhances skin’s moisture 
  • Allium Cepa - Antiseptic extract which prevents scar proliferation 
  • Larycil - Mushroom extract that has astringent, pore tightening and moisturizing effects

Hiruscar Anti-Acne Pore Purifying serum contains:

  • Moringa Seed Extract - Removes impurities & protects skin from pollutants
  • Sebum Controller - A complex of amino acid, vitamin complex, zinc gluconate and caffeine to reduce excess sebum on skin 

Hiruscar Anti-Acne Pore spot gel contains:

  • Vitamin C - Lighten dark marks

  1. Hello Yunzi. Glad you've found the product that suits you. Gahhhh i'm still searching n today is the first day i tried this Hiruscar new product line. I hope it will work for me too. *fingers crossed*

    1. Hi Siti, hope these products suit you too! :D They worked super well on me for around 2 months, then my hopeless skin got used to the medicine suddenly and stopped recovering (always like that) T____T So, I'm testing out yet another set of new medicine now :(
      All the best in your recovery process!!!! These are sure good products~ :DDDDDD

  2. Thank you Yunzi :)

    Omaigoddd really ? Can't believe i've bumped into someone who experienced the exact skin problem as meeeee. T_T My sensitive skin have been behaving on n off since 2012 :((( I've went to 4 doctors including 2 dermatologists since then bcs each of their products only worked for some time for me, then the skin went bad again. Every. Single. Time. Not to mention that i kinda have tried most of the brands available in the drugstores which turned out not working on me. At all.
    I hope your skin will get well real soon!! :))))

  3. My face similar to that photo but no acne now but it keep the scar like your photo but littler some scar on my face I have it for along time I hope that Hiruscar can help me as well

    1. Yeah! The gel did worked on both scars lightening and curing acne, however more effective on the later. My face was pretty much flattened but still have plenty of visible red scars. Thus, I am currently exploring Kinohitmisu BB drinks (tested 3 months) and Kinohitmisu clear activ (since yesterday) and i would said the scars havr lighten 60-70% compared to previously :) you might want to give these 2 a try for scars, and the gel for sudden acnes :) hope my recommendation helps!
