I have had acne prone skin since I was a teenager, but it has gotten worse over the years. (I blame ridiculous hormones, but that's a story for another day... or never.) The point is, I have a lot of acne and I have been waiting until I'm sure I'm done having kids before starting any medication for it. Basically, I just live with it, but I still try various over-the-counter products to see if they make any difference. So I have tried a lot of different things.
Here is what Dermagist's website says about their Acne Clarifying Cream:
Focuses on soothing and benefiting Acne-prone areas with Resveratrol, Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Provitamin B5, Chamomile, Aloe, and Shea Butter. This light cream soothes the irritation of acne prone skin, at the same time it focuses in on making the breakouts go away. The most powerful natural acne clarifying cream on the market, this is a favorite of our clients.I received my Clarifying Cream and started using it right away. The instructions are simple; apply to a clean face twice each day. I tried it for 20 days, applying morning and night.
Other than the fact that I remain very non-photogenic, I think everyone can agree that there is a slight improvement in my skin.
The cream has helped calm the redness associated with my acne and has helped clear some of my trouble spots like on my cheeks. The cream has a very nice texture and one small container will last me well over 30 days. It is also very moisturizing, which is a major plus for me since I generally have dry skin.
The biggest issue I had with this product was the smell. The fragrance of the cream is odd. I wouldn't call it unpleasant, but it is a strong scent. When applying in the morning, this was not an issue since my normal foundation covered it up. In the evenings, though, the fragrance was strong enough that my hubby didn't want my face too close to his. If you or your spouse are sensitive to smells, this could be an issue.
Overall, I think that Dermagist's Acne Clarifying Cream is a good product, but can be quite expensive. I would definitely encourage anyone with acne prone skin to give it a try and see if it works for you.
