This review is 2 years overdue. A lot of my readers have been asking what’s the best anti pimple spot treatment or cream to use. There are hundreds of products to choose from in the market and trust me, I have tried a lot. But I always ended up with this reliable multipurpose product that has actually been with us since the 1950’s and your lola and lolo would surely know this. Do you know it na? Full REVIEW below.

Personal Note: This is also an ode to my old blog “When Chic Hits the Pan” where I started blogging from scratch I did some minor changes on the site if any of you would notice. My posts would go back to its roots to. Just like this post. I mean, Kati-Alis doesn’t even do any shameless promotion because they survive in the market because they have quality. I always say I miss writing about this and that but what do I do? Still end up commercializing. Now I think I’ll just do it. I started it by replacing the “top blogs” link at the bottom of this page na lang. Keeping it for sentimental reasons. I want to chill. Relax.
Yesterday, Cleo and I had a conversation in the FX and told me I looked tired already. He said “Hey, diba hobby mo lang ang blog? Wag mo gawing trabaho yan. Enjoyin mo lang” I became so competitive to be on top that I forgot the essence of it all. Today is a new day for KikaySiKat. Thus the “new” everything.
Ta-da! KatiAlis Ointment Antibacterial/Antifungal Cream. You can buy this at any drugstore and the smallest size costs around 20 pesos only. I finally got the chance to feature this product because I had clear skin for a long time, until now that I suddenly had that breakout moment. Pun intended. I get pimples. I’m not flawless every single day.

It’s a multipurpose cream intended for prickly heat, eczema, dandruff, pimples, ringworm, tinea flava (an-an), athlete’s foot, external hemorrhoids, and insect bites. I haven’t used it for any purpose except for pimples.
- Sulfur – Antifungal, antibacterial. Wards off acne and wrinkles.
- Zinc Oxide – Calming ingredient. Makes redness subside. Sunscreen.
- Resorcinol – Disinfectant and exfoliant. Peels off dead skincells.
- Salicylic Acid – A betahydroxy acid that dries pimples and has a mild exfoliation effect to the skin. DRYING.
All of these are in a creamy and fluffy petrolatum base.
For pimples, I just use it like a spot treatment (see photo below)

This baby dries my pimples OVERNIGHT. You heard it right folks, overnight. But it will take around 3-5 days for it to completely disappear and flake off to oblivion. It’s always in my bedroom stash in case of any acne emergencies. Reliable. Effective. Cheap. It’s lovingly local and proudly pinoy made. I suggest you to get one yourself too!
Let me know how this works for you. I love it to bits. Leave your feedback below.
