My Experience With Betnovate-N For Acne And Acne Scars

?Aye peeps! If you are a regular reader of Beauty Tending Blog, You might have heard me nagging a lot about my acne issues in my recent blog posts. My skin is oily, sensitive and acne prone. My acne always staying between mild to moderate. And it is hereditary and hormonal. But since past few months there has been happening a World War III between my skin and acne! This greatly effected my mood which is but obvious! So about two weeks ago, my bae❤ suggested me to use Betnovate-N. I know there are many reviews floating around this skin cream for acne/pimples. So as I’m using this nowadays, here’s my experience, hop in to know more!

Betnovate-N Experience

The packaging is nothing interesting to look at 😛 it is your regularly wound medication. Yes, you just have to look around in your medicine cabinet and you will find Betnovate-N, sitting somewhere there. I had an old tube but it was expired, so I went ahead to buy a new one for usage.

Betnovate-N is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals. You can easily get it without prescription too since it can be used on wounds, redness, rashes, inflamed skin etc. We have been using this for many years but I have never used it on acne or acne scars before. After my bae recommended it to me, I did a quick search and found out that some people have been using it for acne and eczema too. Now I don’t know how it works on acne, I mean the ingredients doesn’t seem to contain anti-acne properties. So I was very skeptical! ? But since I am a good listener to my bae, I gave it a shot! 😀

So coming back to the packaging 😀 it comes in a green colored box which contains all the important information on it. The tube is white and also contains the same details. The black screw cap closes tight. And the mouth of the tube was sealed with a silver foil, which I pierced using the back of the cap.

Betnovate-N is pure white in color, it looks like your normal Soframycin cream, which I am sure many of you might be familiar with. The smell is also similar to Soframycin. From the past two weeks I have been using it daily at night on a cleansed face. I squeeze out pea size quantity of it, dotting it all over my face and then giving a small massage, whilst it gets absorbed. It does not feel greasy or heavy at first. But after a few hours it feels heavy on the face just like a heavy duty moisturiser. Good thing is, as it is applied during night time, meaning nappy time, the heavy feeling isn’t noticeable.

In the morning I do wake up with an extra oily skin. It is quite common for me since I have oily skin. Therefore I always get up with an oily skin with or without any product used the night prior. But with this cream there is an extra oily layer. And I am glad that it did not clog my pores and gave me terrible breakouts! *Touch Wood!*

Let me share, that my acne were quite painful, it pained even without touching them. Like, if I tried to laugh, the acne region would hurt! So somewhere between a week, I noticed that my acne reduced in appearance as well in numbers! Woah! Also the active acne scars seem to lighten. My face somewhat appeared clearer, healthy and natural glow was evident. At first I was very skeptical of using Betnovate-N for acne and acne scars, but after seeing the results, I was amazed! ? I have used many anti-acne medications and they come with horrible side effects, like stinging, sudden flare out, flaky skin, sun sensitivity etc. But with this cream I did not experience any such side effects.

However, it does not prevent future breakouts, which no product can actually do! Neither it does anything on whiteheads and blackheads and for this sole reason: I am going to switch back to Retinol after some time. And I will share my experience with Retinol too! (So stay tuned!)

But apart from comedones if you suffer from active pimples/acne/zits whatever you want to name them, you can use this to clear your skin quickly without any side effects. I can’t promise that this is going to work forever or every time, because remember- nothing is permanent! 🙂

So overall, I am really glad that I listened to bae 😀 and used Betnovate-N. He suggests to keep using it for a month or so. So I’m going to continue!

I loved it!

Rating 5/5

Betnovate-N worked on my active painful acne and acne scars. For me I saw a huge difference after two weeks of regular usage. So if you are someone who is looking for a quick solution for your mild to moderate acne, you can give this a shot! Of Course it can be used by both men and women!

Update: As I’ve said in the above post that I’ll be using it for a month only, as I’m aware that it can not be used for longer duration. And if you are a regular reader of Beauty Tending blog, then you know that I’m a Retinol user. As I write this, it’s been 20 days and I’ve discontinued using Betnovate- N after it cleared up big and painful acne for me. So I just want to put this information out there that if you are using it and it’s working for you don’t use it for more than a month. And if it’s not working for you then discontinue its usage.

I used it because I saw a difference within a week plus no side effects. So I continued using it for almost three weeks. However, I did not intend for using it more than a month.

    Dear Snehal,
    Gone through your blog over Betnovate N cream,its fascinating result to your Acne problems. Nothing surprising as this cream contains heavy steroids.My advice to all not use any steroids for acne problems. .as it will be worsed upon withdrawal, leading to steroid induced acne vulgaris,which cant be curable .
    The second medication Retinol you can continue, will improve slowly.

    To all acne and pimples affected dear ones,I am writing this withmy own experience. .The best things to do will be drink plenty of water, avoid spicy foods, reduce fried and oily vegetarian.
    Apply any face cleanser morning and night ..dont put any creams on night as it clogs the pores.

    If the case go worse…take a consultation from best dermatologists ..they will suggest dermabberation, peeling or Laser treatment to control your pimples and acne scars…This treatment is costly and takes few sittings but will get a positive result.

    I would recommend that apply it whenever you feel you are going experience a breakout, but do not make it a habit. Not every night or on a particular day per week or even a month – these are all patterns and since it’s a steroid, chances are your body will get used to this pattern, seeking vengeance if you break it. So I am not saying to not use it frequently, but make sure you don’t make it a pattern in the long term, be random in your application.

      My friend is using betnovite n since one year.
      If he stops his face is getting dull and dark.
      Can u suggest me is he continues this or not??

      • Snehal says:

        I only used it for a few months, as my review says. I suggest he should discontinue using it. One year is quite long. I would only suggest using betnovate if nothing is working on the breakouts and they have become very painful at the same time. The dullness and darkness could be caused by some other reasons too like sun exposure etc. Please check out my DIYs on this blog. Tell him to try it out. And let me know what works best for him!
