While this isn’t exactly “makeup” I figured it had enough to do with beauty that it would fit in well enough for my Makeup Monday posting.

I dealt with acne throughout my teen years.  Bad acne at times.  Surprisingly most of my 20’s I had super clear healthy skin, but lately I have had pretty nasty breakouts again.  Most things I tried were not helping it, or were drying out my skin so much I’d have to stop for a few days to let my skin heal.

Apothederm (3)

I was excited to give Apothederm a try. 

Apothderm states the benefits:

  • Salicylic acid, an anti-inflammatory ingredient, exfoliates dead skin cells
  • Glycerin is a humectant that draws moisture to skin
  • Lightweight and fast absorbing
  • Minimizes pore size
  • Keeps skin balanced

There are several different lines that Apothederm offers, but of course I tested the Apothederm Acne Clarifying Treatment.

-My Opinion-

It went on smoothly and I didn’t notice any dryness at all.  I only  used it at night for the most part though.  I think I did it a few times during my day routine, but always at night.  I truly think that my skin did clear up quite a bit while using it.  It felt nice on, no stickiness or oiliness feel.  I barely even noticed it actually.  Which again was a major bonus marks since quite often you feel a treatment like that being on.  I liked the product though and would highly recommend you give it a go if you are suffering from any kind of acne.

While I don’t know that you can tell a huge difference from the photos, I can tell a difference in person.  I tried to get similar angles and light, but you can tell its all slightly different.  Hopefully you can tell the tiny bit of difference in the photos at least.

    I am glad that it doesn’t dry out your skin. Most of the acne products I have used always makes my skin really dry and flaky.

  • That is quite often my issue too April – I even had some from the product I was using before I started testing this, so had to skip a few days to let my skin heal before really trying this one.
