KATI-ALIS! Most Effective Pimple Spot Treatment (shh it’s so cheap you’d be surprised!)

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.

Can you spot my pimples? They’re cystic with pus too! O diba bongga #nomakeup


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)
I don’t care if they see me in the office with white spots. The office is my 2nd home.


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.
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did writing it!  Please show some love by doing the following:
Take care beautiful person. Come again soon! – Kaycee

    Haha. I knew it was KatiAlis! That red cover is so familiar (^-^)

    My first encounter with KatiAlis when I was in senior high school was horrible. I applied it on my pimples (like, 20 of them were on my face back then) and left them overnight. The following day, I was walking around the campus with a swollen face. Prolly I had some allergic reaction but a couple of days after, the skin started to get darker and voila! The skin peeled off and yes, I had clearer skin.

    The next time I tried it was when I was already working (4 years ago maybe) and the same thing happened. I just had to endure three days of redness but after that, everything's good.

    Now I think I'll buy another one bcoz my two-month old pimp marks on my left cheek wouldn't seem to go away in another month or two.

    Did you experience anything like mine? I mean, swelling, redness and stinging sensation on your face Miss Kaycee?

  • MommyCharm

    Been hearing so many good things about this mask from Leaders Insolution. But Miss Kaycee, di ba sya nag-dry up kahit one hour mo sya nilagay sa face mo? And jeez, how I wish my colleagues would tolerate me working beside them with a mask on! Haha. Astig! Face mask sa work =)

    It's just a bit pricey compared to the other masks that I use but definitely worth a try, I think. Well, as soon as my Dermal and Skin Note masks are finished, I'll try even just one oif this!

  • Rae

    Excited for future this change and for future posts, Kaycee! What do I call you pala, Kat or Kaycee. On my phone, you're Kat. 😛

    I used this in my teens along with Dr. Wong's sulfur soap 😀 Dami ko kasing allergies. I like that there's minor peeling a day or two after you apply this on pimples and rashes, parang 'skin renewed'. Pero ngayon I use tea tree to spot treat.

  • flarelina

    wow 🙂 I'm gonna give it a try. i don't know what's on my face it's either pimples or rashes. I've started to have these things a month after using kojic soap I really don't know. Thanks miss Kikay 🙂 Anyways, do you have any recommendation for blackheads ? nose strip / nose pack. 🙂 Good day and Godbless

  • Maui

    Hi. 🙂 Do you know any effective treatment for keloid scars? I recently suffered an accident and ended up with a small keloid scar on my hand. I'm fair skinned and the scar sticks out so bad. :((

  • Cookie Mcjingles

    Hi, would like to ask if using relumins alone effective poh ba? Or i have to take it with relumins vit c? Thanks!

  • kikaysikat

    I suggest using EREASE for scars, then rosehip oil for healing. I will make a separate feature for Erase soon..

  • kikaysikat

    I texted you! Ako hindi sakin tumatalab tea tree, as in kahit ilang beses ko na triny iba ibang brands, pero at least natural naiinggit nga ako sa mga hiyang sa tea tree..

    oo sis, napagod din kaya magpost pag utang na loob mo yung product :))

  • Francis T

    the day after i read this post, bumili ako ng katialis as i have some breakouts. Talagang effective siya. I applied it at 12am and kahit 3.5 hours lang tulog ko since i have early ojt work, nagdry talaga yung pimple ko. As in! Right now as i comment, it's gone. Ang galing! Thank you Kaycee for recommending this, ikaw na! It's P28 pesos pala for the smallest size sa mercury drug. It's so cheap and effective compared compared to what i'm using before.

    Hello Sis! Nagtimpla na ako kagabi ng bleaching cream. I used Alaska evaporated filled milk (small can), hydrogen peroxide 3% 10vol (generic), 2 egg whites, and grated Ivory soap bar. Ang dali i-apply sa buong katawan and NO STING! Sinimulan ko muna sa legs pataas kasi kung may maramdaman na akong hapdi, hindi ko na sana ituloy ang pag-apply pero napakamild lang. 30mins lang nakababad sa skin ko kasi nakakainip maghintay, and baka umiyak na si baby. Parang gusto ko araw-arawin for faster result. Pero tanong ko lang, ok lang ba gawin yun daily? Kasi yung nauusong bleaching cream 7 consecutive days. Nilagay ko siya sa clear na plastic tub then binalot ko ng plastic then nilagay sa crisper sa ref. Pero thankful ako at ni-share mo itong bleaching cream mixture. Mura na, enjoy gawin at alam ko kung anong nilalagay ko sa katawan ko. 🙂

  • kikaysikat

  • Maui

    Any brand of rosehip oil that you can recommend? 🙂 Also, I went to Watson's earlier and saw 2 variants of Erase. The Diamond and another one. Which one of them should I get? 🙂 Btw, thanks a lot for replying! I appreciate it.
