ZENMED contacted me and asked if I would like to try some of their products. Being a product junkie I said, “Yes!” and told them I was a having some issues with PMS acne and being in my forties could always use anti-aging products. Here is a sampling of the products I received and my thoughts.
ZENMED Skin Care:
I have been using the ZENMED Facial Cleansing Gel daily.
From the website: “This is a gentle, ph balanced gel cleanser designed to be gentle to troubled skin. Used twice a day, this formulation will not cause dryness or irritation common with major brand name cleansers.”
Any proper skin care routine begins with a good cleanser. I found this cleanser to be quite good. It slightly foams up, has only a hint of fragrance, and leaves my skin feeling smooth and refreshed. It did not dry or irritate my skin in any way. The product is made from 100% vegetarian ingredients and is not tested on animals. The price point also reasonable for this product and I would say that I could certainly add it to my skin care routine.
Here is where things got a bit tricky! I thought I was having a reaction to the AHA/BHA Complex, but what was actually happening was my dead skin began flaking to reveal smooth healthy skin. Phew! I had no idea how blocked my pores had become until this product began clearing them up! To apply you just spray the product onto a cotton pad and apply a thin layer to your face. Following up with sunscreen is very important because it can cause sensitivity and sun damage. I had to be careful with this as we go out boating and I am in the sun a lot. The funny thing is that since I started to use this product I probably have become more conscious of wearing sunblock and taking care of my skin when it comes to the sun. I’d say we have a win-win here!
From the website: “This is an alcohol-free, alpha/beta hydroxy acid product created to be used like a traditional toner. Helps unblock and minimize pores, clear up post-Acne discoloration, balance patchy, combination skin, and gradually remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.”
The next product is the Dermacleanse Acne Mask & Spot Treatment. Of course when I have these products sent to me I have no problems with acne! I tried this product on my husband and 2 sons. Yes, I tried it on teen acne!
From the website: “Montmorillonite-clay based Acne treatment that helps heal pimples fast and prevent excessive oil buildup on the skin. Applied as a mask to affected areas clarifies the pores and help draw impurities out. Used as a spot treatment overnight reduces severity and healing time.”
Here is what I can say about it: Gentle and not drying. It has been fine on teen skin and has been keeping the acne in check. No huge breakouts and I feel good about letting them use it.
I saved the best for last! B5 Hyaluronic Plumping Serum
From the website: “Vitamin B5 and Hyaluronic Acid help bump up collagen levels by drawing moisture towards the surface of the skin. Plumping skin cells leads to a visible improvement of mature, sun-damaged, and dehydrated skin. Contours appear more enhanced, wrinkles are minimized, and the skin looks visibly thicker and more youthful.”
I am 100% convinced that this product has improved my skin! Since I started to use it I feel as if my skin is definitely tighter and smoother. Is it because I’m paying more attention to its care? I don’t think so, I think this serum has brightened my appearance. I’ll close this post with a before and after photo of myself. I did not take these for the purpose of this post. I just happen to have these on my phone and I thought to myself, “I look better than I had in the past pics.” Even if it’s only in my head it’s worth it!
