Apothederm Acne Clarifying Treatment

Disclosure: I received the Apothederm acne treatment to test out.

As you may already know if you follow my blog, that I tested out a new product that broke out my face terribly.

If you haven’t seen that review, check it out HERE.

It’s a NO-GO on a product for me if it breaks me out like that.

Here’s the Before Apothederm Acne treatment picture.

YIKES RIGHT!!

Fortunately,  Apothederm sent me their Acne Clarifying Treatment with Smart Peptides.

I’ve never heard of this brand, but I was desperate!

As soon as I received the acne treatment,  I immediately applied it on.

The consistency is like a light serum.  It’s slightly thin and runny.

I applied it to my affected areas and a little around them 1-3 times a day for a couple of weeks.

I do have semi-sensitive skin and doing it 3 times a day didn’t dry me out, but everyone is different so adjust it to your liking and comfort.

It soaks into my skin and doesn’t leave any film.  It’s as if I never applied anything on.

The scent is your typical acne treatment smell.  The scent does disappear so you won’t notice it after you apply it.

Heres the Ingredients:

Oligopeptide-10
Patented SmartPeptide® technology that has skin calming properties, shown to help bind cellular toxins.*

Salicylic Acid
This anti-inflammatory, exfoliates dead skin cells to help reduce pore size and sebum build up.

Glycerin
A humectant that draws moisture to skin.

Active Ingredient
Salicylic Acid (1%) for acne treatment

Inactive Ingredients
Water (Aqua), SD Alcohol 40-B, Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Polysilicone-11, Isohexadecane, Phenyl Trimethicone, Oligopeptide-10, Sodium Hydroxide, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Polysorbate 60, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol.

I received the Apothederm Clarifying Acne Treatment above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only give you the down and dirty of my experiences.

DermStore Haul

I’ve always seen and heard about DermStore on the internet but I’ve never order anything until recently.  This was my 1st time ordering from them.

I was looking for my favorite lip plumping lipgloss Lip Venom and on the Duwop website they were out of stock so I went to the DermStore website and saw that they had it in stock so I ordered my Lip Venom.

They also put a “Mystery gift” on the receipt and today I received my order!

These are the products that I received.

Holy Grail Lip plumper

Wowsers!!

I received the product I wanted, the Lip Venom lip plumper.  Which is by the way, the best lip plumper out on the market in my opinion.

A DermStore brand Lip Quench moisture-infused lip treatment,  a sample of Heliocare Daily use Antioxidant Formula,  and a sample of Ultra Repair Cream.

I will most DEFINITELY order from DermStore again!

Have you Dolls tried the Duwop Lip Venom before?  It’s my absolute favorite lip plumper!
