GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. THANKS FOR ENTERING.
I am back with another great product from Apothederm. If you remember, I reviewed and loved the Apothederm Stretch Mark Cream just over a year ago. See it HERE. I still get quite a few hits and questions regarding that product review.
Apothederm sent me their Acne Clarifying Treatment to try out and I have been using it since just after Christmas. It seems that after turning 40 just a few months ago, my skin has already started changing. I have been having quite a few breakouts of acne, nearly one or two a week, which isn't something I am used to. I have no idea if turning 40 has anything to do with it or if my hormones are out of whack, but this product came at a great time for me. Especially during the holidays when I was getting less sleep and eating heavier foods, I noticed an increase in blemishes.
This product is a power packed acne treatment that helps to reduce the appearance of blemishes. Dual acne prevention ingredients, Oligopeptide-10 and Salicylic Acid, work together to target existing blemishes and help prevent future breakouts. Glycerin provides hydration to skin without stripping moisture, leaving skin soft to the touch.
- Exfloites dead skin cells and cleans up sebum (oily secretions)
- Minimizes pore size
- Helps clear breakouts and prevents future breakouts
- Effective but gentle for all over facial use
For me, the only down-side was the scent of the product. Even though it states it is fragrance free, there is a scent to it. I assume it is just the scent of the ingredients, but it was a slight turn off for me. I am sensitive to different odors and this was one I didn't care for, but it didn't keep me from using the product. I am anxious to use this product in the summer when I tend to be more oily. Overall, I was quite happy with the performance and what it did for my skin:
- Reduced the size and longevity of the blemish
- Kept skin around the blemish smooth
- No over drying of skin due to use
- Stopped new blemishes from appearing in same area where product was applied.
