Don’t you just love finding a gem in the rough? I do! My “gem” finding is usually a great indie beauty find, or something for my skin that works SO well that I shout it from the rooftops.
Two months ago, I spotted a bright yellow jar in the herbals section during my weekly Walgreens haunting. There were actually a few jars there that looked intriguing, but the one I snagged is “De La Cruz’s Sulfur Ointment“.
It was less than five bucks for a tub that will last me at least a few years. I’ve been dabbing it on potential breakouts and current pimples now for over six weeks and the stuff is a miracle. It feels a bit goopy at first, apply it sparingly – trust me… a little goes a LONG way. I notice a very, very slight sulfur smell at first, but I’ve had other friends and family do a sniff check and they can’t detect it after even a minute. It works great under makeup, or before bed. Plus if you’re like me and have super-sensitive skin (Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid often make me break out even worse), this frugal find could be just the ticket to clear up your skin.
I’ve bought a few bottles for friends and family – everyone is having great results! Since I am majorly pinching pennies lately, but don’t want my face and skin reverting into a acne-laden nightmare, I’ll definitely keep my Sulfur Ointment on my bedside table. My breakouts have decreased significantly, and if I do get a pimple, it heals in a few days rather than over a week or more.
I’m giving this my full Bionic Buy status! De La Cruz Sulfur Ointment is only $4.99 for a 3 ounce tub online at Walgreens.com (or if you’re a Floridian, check your actual store aisles).
Ingredients: Sulfur USP 10%, plus a “mixture of polyethylene glycols”
