If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I have issues with my skin. The minute I stepped foot into college, it was as though adult acne decided to come for the ride. I honestly did not know what happened, how it happened, or why it happened, but it did.
College was truly one of the best (met my hubby), and worst times in my life! I suffered from very severe adult acne. I would literally stay home and miss my classes because of horrible breakouts.
I am now in my thirties and fortunately for me the breakouts have subsided but scarring still remains. I have tried many, many, inexpensive and expensive products in my life. I have gone to clinics and spent a lot of money. I have gone to see dermatologists and have spent even more hoping for a some sort of help for my scars.
Boy was I excited when Dermagist contacted me to test out their skin care line! I thought I was the perfect candidate for their Acne Scars Fading System. Read below for my review and don’t forget to enter the giveaway for your very own system!
1. Detoxifying Cleanser w/Resveratrol – 4 oz.
I am very particular about my cleansers. I wear makeup everyday, including eyeliner and mascara. A cleanser that cleans the entire face, without leaving any residue is a winner for me! This Detoxifying Cleanser does just that. Prior to this cleanser, I was using Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple Cleanser. I know Philosophy is a very popular skincare line, but my skin never felt clean after using it. It did not remove my eye makeup and I would end up using a separate product. There was a clear difference between these two cleansers.
Something else that made this cleanser great is the addition of Resveratrol. Resveratrol is a natural substance that provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. Who doesn’t love that?
2. Acne Scar Fading Cream w/Acai Berry Extract – 1.7 oz.
I am so happy to share my thoughts on this cream. FIRST I must tell you – there is NO Hydroquinone in this product – NONE! Let me tell you why that makes me so happy. Remember my trips to the dermatologist? Too many times I was prescribed ointments with Hydroquinone. At that time I was uneducated on ingredients and I would try anything. These ointments with Hydroquinone actually made my scarring worse and more severe. I have read numerous horror stories about the side effects of this ingredient.
Because the Acne Scar Fading Cream doesn’t contain Hydroquinone tells me Dermagist knows what it’s doing!
I have been using this system for a little over a week. I can tell you that my face feels so fresh and clean after using the cleanser and I am noticing subtle changes in the texture of my skin. I am excited to see what positive effects this cream with have on my scars!
