Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot | Review

Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot is a spot treatment with anti-inflammatory ingredients like salicylic acid, tea tree oil and madecassoside to combat spots and promote healing. This is specially formulated to be non-comedogenic to suit people with acne-prone skin.

It is formulated with a 6-FREE system — Free of Animal Ingredients, Mineral Oil, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Triethanolamine, Tar Coloring and Artificial Fragrance.

Fun Fact: This is a revamped version (new packaging + improved formula) of my all-time favorite spot treatment, Etude House AC Clinic Pink Powder Spot.

The new Pink Powder Spot Set comes with a sample size tube of Pink Powder Mask and a packet of cotton swabs.

P.S.: I will be doing a review on the Pink Powder Mask in another post very soon. So if you are interested, stay tuned to my blog~!

The pink powder spot comes in a glass bottle with a plastic twist off cap.

It has two layers — Pink Powder and Water.

The pink powder layer contains calamine and sulfur which act as antibacterial agents that kill acne-causing bacteria. Whereas, the water layer contains chamaecyparis obtusa water with a mixture of salicylic acid, tea tree oil, alcohol and other anti-inflammatory ingredients that help to soothe inflammation and promote healing.

Ingredients List: Alcohol, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Water, Zinc Oxide (Ci 77947), Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Salicylic Acid, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Leaf Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Madecassoside, Allium Sativum (Garlic) Bulb Extract, Ampelopsis Japonica Root Extract, Allium Cepa (Onion) Bulb Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Glycoproteins, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract, Mannitol, Saururus Chinensis Extract, Silica, Ammonium Glycyrrhizate, Water, Zinc Gluconate, Caffeine, Colloidal Sulfur, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Iron Oxides (Ci 77491), Fragrance

How To Use:
DO NOT SHAKE IT! Simply dip a cotton swap into the bottle. Allow the tip to get soaked with the water and powder, then apply it directly onto your zits.

Tried and Tested

It dries to a chalky pink powdery finish, so I usually use it at night.

I applied it on my pimple (a pustule) for four consecutive nights and I can tell a difference in the mornings. Here's the pictures of the healing process of my pimple:
My pimple looked smaller and less inflamed after a day of use. It dried up on Day 3, and on Day 4, it fully flattened out and healed.

Note: The healing time may vary depending on the type of acne.

What I love about this product is that it gives fast results! Another thing I love about this product is it gives a cooling sensation that instantly soothes pimple soreness.

Overall, it is effective and efficient in treating pimples. I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend it to all!

  1. I was looking at purchasing the set as I do still suffer from acne but it hasn't been quite as bad lately, may still do just as a back up in case! I'm impressed with how quickly this has worked and how effectively! Always a little skeptical but this looks like a genuinely great product! Plus Etude House always giving us cute packaging!

  2. Wow, this really had an amazing effect on you! I tried the original version but unfortunately it didn't work as well as this did on you T_T

  3. Etude House always gets me with the cute packaging! The effect was amazing *_* I don't get many pimples, but i do have some breakouts now and then, and this looks like the perfect product to have when you need to make them disappear **


  4. Hello! How long does it take for you to use up all the product? :)

  5. Etude House have AC Clinic line and AC Clean Up line, what's the different? And which one is better? I'm planning to try one of these line but I don't know what's the differences and which one should I try
