    QUICKFX Pimple Eraser: What Makes This Product Effective?

    Pimples are a pain, but they’re also pretty common (especially during puberty). No wonder there are plenty of products to get rid of pimples fast. One of them is a product called Pimple Eraser. What are its active ingredients? Will it work for you? Find out here.  

    What Is Pimple Eraser?

    Pimple Eraser is a QUICKFX product that, according to their website, can:

    • Dry up pimples 
    • Lighten dark spots from previous breakouts 
    • Improve the appearance of redness, blemishes, and large pores when used regularly
    • Make your skin look more radiant and smoother

    Pimple Eraser is also said to deliver results within 24 hours. But, does it really work? What ingredients can make this product effective?

    QUICKFX Pimple Eraser: Active Ingredients

    Pimple Eraser’s active ingredients are salicylic acid, glycolic acid, niacinamide, zinc oxide, and vitamin C.

    Salicylic Acid

    Pimple Eraser contains salicylic acid, a chemical exfoliant that works by dissolving the bonds between dead skin cells to remove them more easily. It also increases cell turnover (the rate at which cells are replaced) so that there are fewer clogged pores and acne bacteria to cause pimples.

    Glycolic Acid

    Glycolic acid is another chemical exfoliant that can help with acne. It dissolves dead skin cells and oil, preventing them from clogging pores. On top of that, some studies determined that this ingredient can inhibit bacterial growth. Reports also say glycolic acid can stimulate collagen production, which can improve skin elasticity.

    Zinc Oxide

    Zinc oxide is a common ingredient in sunscreen and other skin care products. It’s used to block the sun’s rays, but it can also be applied topically to treat acne due to its anti-inflammatory property. Zinc oxide also has antibacterial properties that help prevent blemishes and reduce inflammation from existing pimples, which means fewer blemishes overall.

    Vitamin C

    Vitamin C is an antioxidant that also acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps reduce the appearance of dark spots. It can be used to treat acne and lighten scars, which makes it a great option for people who want to have a smoother complexion.


    Niacinamide, also known as nicotinamide, is a form of vitamin B3. It can be an effective treatment for acne-prone skin because it can reduce swelling and redness. Niacinamide is mostly used to treat comedonal acne (whiteheads and blackheads), but it can also help improve the texture, tone, and clarity of your complexion in general.

    Should You Try Pimple Eraser?

    Pimple Eraser is an inexpensive way to treat acne. A tube of 30 grams cost about Php110, but they also have them in sachets. If you have mild pimples, you may consider using Pimple Eraser, but don’t forget to do a patch test first to make sure you won’t react negatively to it. If you use a product and turn out to be sensitive to it, you might only make your skin condition worse. 

    Also, while the product says it can deliver results overnight, please remember that it might only pertain to the drying of mild pimples and that each person is different. Others may find Pimple Eraser effective after just a while of using it. Some might need several days to see results, while others might not see results even after a few weeks.  

    For moderate to severe acne, don’t attempt to use over-the-counter products. 

    At the end of the day, the best way to treat any form of acne is to visit a dermatologist. They’ll be able to assess your condition and skin type and recommend products that suit you. 

    Key Takeaways

    QUICKFX Pimple Eraser is said to deliver results overnight. According to its website, it can help dry pimples, lighten dark spots, improve the appearance of redness, and make the skin look more brilliant. Its active ingredients are salicylic acid, glycolic acid, niacinamide, zinc oxide, and vitamin C.
