Check It Out: Ly-Na Pearl Cream for Acne

I was reading Vanessa's blog at Nessasarymakeup and she did a review on Ly-Na Pearl Cream. It's a product from Taiwan that is apparently a popular acne killer. Obviously, I didn't get the memo on this one. I can't guarantee that this product is Paraben Free. All of the websites that sell it have the same information and ingredients listing verbatim. I did buy a jar of it on E-Bay to try, so hopefully I will be able to verify for you - assuming it has English somewhere on the box!

Active Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Centanol, Lanolin, Glyceryl Monostearate, Isopropyl Myristate, Sulfur, Perfume, Ion Exchange Water, Glycerine, Potassium Hydroxide, Pearl Powder.

Ly-Na sells for around $4 at Asian markets, a few online sellers and E-Bay. Be sure to read Vanessa's review of this product and her reader's comments for more info.


  1. Do keep us posted on your experience! :-) I want to try the product, but being Latina, I'm concerned with its skin-lightening aspects. Hmm?? Thanks.

  2. Hiya,
    did this product work for you?

    Curious to know because stearic acid is known to be comedogenic.
    Which I find strange that acne products often have it in them.

  3. It didn't work for me at all. If you click on 'Ly-Na' under the 'labels' section, you can read all my posts on it.

  4. I bought it because all the raves (first hearing it from Nessa of course). Only 2.50. Why not try?
    You have to wet you face first before you put it on. Let me warn you, it does make your face white and pasty. it smells very rosey and it bothers me =( but hope it will get rid of the pimples.
