This isn’t the first time I have written about pimples. Earlier this year I shared a video regarding my struggle with acne. I feel confident in saying that for the last 12 months I have been struggling with pimples constantly appearing on my face. As soon as I would get rid of one, two more would appear in it’s place. I have googled this a bit and I’ve read it is pretty common for women who haven’t necessarily struggled with acne in the past to all of a sudden have issues once they are in their 40’s. I turned 40 in September (eek!), so I may be experiencing some early hormonal changes.
I’ve tried many products ranging from Clarisonic to drugstore brands like Neutrogena and Clean and Clear. Nothing seemed to work in regards to preventing future pimples. I’ve also tried many products to assist in fading my acne scars such as Mederma and Borba Skin Lightening Spot Treatment. Nothing has worked. The pimples have continued to show up and the scars have lingered on.
I’m often nervous about trying online skincare products (some things I just like to see in person before I make a purchase), but I decided to give the Dermagist Ultimate Clarifying System for Acne Prone Skin a try. After doing some research, the reviews were positive and at this point I had nothing to lose in trying about something new. I liked that the products did not contain Salicylic acid or Benzoyl Peroxide which tends to dry out my skin and hasn’t been effective in getting rid of my pimples thus far. Dermagist products contain more natural products such as Resveratrol, Aloe and Chamomile.
The Ultimate Clarifying System includes a bottle of Detoxifying Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin, a jar of Acne Clarifying Cream and a jar of Acne Scar Fading Cream. The system costs about $120 for a 45 day supply and you are able to save money if you sign up for the Replenish plan where Dermagist will send you a new supply every 45 days.
The skincare products come in very nice packaging. The cleanser comes in a squeezable bottle and both creams come in really nice glass jars. After using the products for 4 weeks,twice a day as instructed, I have about 1/4 of the cleanser left (I used it liberally) and about half of both jars of the cream left. All of the products have a very pleasant smell. Not overwhelming, not perfume-like either, more of a gentle, natural smell. The cleanser is not gritty or harsh. It is a light, easily spreadable cleanser that also rinses off easily. The creams are both similar in regards to look and feel. The creams absorbed into my face quickly, not leaving my face feeling greasy either. Also, I didn’t have any negative reaction to any of the products, no skin irritation at all.
After using the Ultimate Clarifying System for 4 weeks I am very pleased with the results. I feel as though the products did exactly what they were supposed to. The cleanser and clarifying cream prevented my face from breaking out the entire time that I used them. Not one pimple showed it’s ugly face! UNBELIEVABLE!! I can’t even recall the last time I have gone an entire month without a pimple popping up. Both products also helped even out my skintone. As for the Scar Fading Cream, well, it’s hard to say. My scars have certainly faded, but I was a little surprised they haven’t faded more than they have. I can’t say that any other products have worked more effectively than this scar cream, so possibly my expectations were just set too high. I mean, what is a feasible time for scars to remain even with treatment? It’s a hard thing to judge and I am sure everyone’s face is different. Unfortunately I tend to scar easily and my face has broken out so much the past year I am fighting a big battle. At any rate, the entire system is amazing and I am so happy to have finally found a product that prevents future breakouts. That alone makes the system worth it to me.
