Yadah Anti-T Red Zero Spot Cream Review

Thanks to BBcosmetic, I got to try my first Yadah product. I’ve seen most people talk about the Yadah bubble cleanser or the toner, but I hadn’t seen anyone use this. I’m not very acneic myself, I don’t get inflammatory acne (i.e. whiteheads/closed comedomes) but rather I get blackheads. I did get a few breakouts after receiving this but naturally I forgot to take pictures -_-;;;; I did take note on how this cream worked and didn’t work though.

My skin type

  • Dry Skin
  • Non- Sensitive (literally have not reacted to hundreds of products over the course of my lifetime)
  • Concerns
    • a few pronounced sebaceous filaments on the nose
    • The occasional pimple
    • inhibiting wrinkle formation
    • preventing cancer
    • getting rid of my dry patches

With my trusty companions so interested in the packaging

What this cream claims to do

According to the bbcosmetic website

  • Spot concentration treatment cream soothes the red spot.
  • Natural extract such as Opuntia extract and green tea extract control excessive sebum secretions, improve skin environments, and soothe the troubled area
  • Low stimulative moisturizing function for the sensitive skin
  • Vegetable extract such as aloe vera gel, rosemary extract, and sage extract naturally moisturize the sensitive skin
  • Paraben, Benzophenone, Mineral oil, Sulfate, Artificial dyes, Minimal chemical materials free
  • Main ingredients: Salicylic acid, Green Tea Extract, Rosemary Extract, Sage Extract, Sage Extract
  • Jointly researched and developed with Heated Material Sebum control and astriction on the troubled area

And according to the box

  • Spot Concentration treatment cream soothes the red spot. The spot treatment is based on 7 patented natural soothing ingredients and it absorbs the skins excess sebum with highly enriched plants extracts
  • In the last step of the skincare routine, apply an appropriate amount and rub gently over the damaged skin. Suitable for use day and night. Apply thickly in the evening

I saw on the package they listed that BSASM Complex was used (and it was trademarked) so I looked it up (link to the webpage)

  • Butylene Glycol and Aqua (which are the boring bits)

  • Centella Asiatica Extract

  • Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract

  • Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract

  • Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract

  • Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract

  • Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract

  • Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract

MultiEx BSASM™ is a safe and effective agent for skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis or acne. It consists of 7 kinds of plant extracts. It shows strong soothing, anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory efficacies. It has been a best-selling product of BioSpectrum since 2009.

Kinda cool, I’ve never heard of this particular complex, but I have seen these ingredients used a lot in Korean cosmetics in general.

Very low comedogenicity rating for such a loooong ingredient list. This is a good thing since the idea is to use this product on top of breakouts. Lots of soothing ingredients

My experience

  • Scent: inoffensive, kinda herbal but doesn’t linger
  • texture: just like any cream
  • packaging: pretty hygienic. Gives that easy cheese experience, which I’m a fan of
  • How I used it
    • I tried it as a spot treatment on my blackheads
      • this was ineffective
    • I tried it as a spot treatment on my whiteheads
      • this was ineffective
    • I tried this as a spot treatment on lanced whiteheads
      • this was ineffective
    • I tried this over a larger area where the breakout(s) were occuring
      • basically I had a breakout on the left side of my chin so I used a whole pump to apply product all over my chin and the left cheek. THIS method actually showed a reduction in inflammation for me

Overall

I don’t think my skin type is the best to showcase the effectiveness of this product as it contains ingredients to reduce inflammation and I’m not one to get a lot of inflammation or even inflammatory acne. When I did get a whitehead, which started as a blackhead I found that this was effective when I used more product over a larger area. This was nice to see as overall the ingredient list is impressive.

Who I think would like this product more are those who suffer from inflammation, inflammatory/cystic acne and those who respond well to lots of plants on their face. Also if you prefer your products to be free of parabens, mineral oil, benzophenone, sufate and artificial dyes then this is up your alley too.

You can get this product on Amazon Prime which is exciting for $16.98 <– Link here

Cheers

  1. This looks like a great product to keep acne and pimples under control. It may work slowlier than other products, but checking cosdna’s list there is a minimum risk for me to try it, glycerin is ok for me, I can’t say about tocopherol but in general the ingredients list is HUGE and interesting. Great review, by the way. So informative and precise. Thanks for it.

  2. I loved reading the list at the end. This was ineffective, this was ineffective, this was ineffective, may be effective. I am rather jealous though that your skintype is such that you don’t need this cream. Will have to look into it myself seeing as how I get breakouts and inflamation.
