Beauty Review: Apothederm Acne Clarifying Treatment

Disclosure: The products mentioned in this post were sent for review purposes only; All opinions are 100% honest and completely my own.

Apothederm has made a REALLY awesome Acne Clarifying Treatment!
Apothederm Acne Clarifying Treatment
This product is a power packed acne treatment that helps to reduce the appearance of blemishes.  Dual acne prevention ingredients, Oligopeptide-10 and Salicylic Acid, work together to target existing blemishes and help prevent future breakouts.  Glycerin provides hydration to skin without stripping moisture, leaving skin soft to the touch. 
  • Exfloites dead skin cells and cleans up sebum (oily secretions)
  • Minimizes pore size
  • Helps clear breakouts and prevents future breakouts
  • Effective but gentle for all over facial use
Apothederm Acne Clarifying Treatment comes in a 1 ounce pump bottle.  It retails for $32.50.  To view before and after photos, check out their website,

I was excited to try this! I’ve been on the lookout for a good acne gel, wash, or SOMETHING to help with the breakouts I’ve been getting since starting with the tanning bed visits.

I’ve been having small bumps (that DON’T turn into full acne) around my jawline to the base of my earlobes, blackheads on my nose and chin, and random breakouts. I needed to clear all of this up!
I applied this after my nighttime treatment of washing and/or exfoliation but before creams, moisturizers, and toners. It is a clear, gel like product that goes on easily and sinks into the skin very quickly.

The best thing about it that there wasn’t any burning, redness, irritation, or drying after. Usually acne medicine whether it’s a gel or a cleanser causes all of these problems after applying, but this didn’t. I was glad, it felt like just another “item” in the nighttime routine.

It only takes a very small amount to get the job done (less than a dime size) so this bottle will last me quite some time. It IS kind of pricey, but if you look at how long it lasts and the other products you don’t have to buy now (concealer, glycolic acid face washes..) it’s well worth it to have beautiful, clear skin.

Now that spring is here and summer is very near, I am very glad to have this! My skin seems to become even MORE oily in the warmer months, so now I know I can keep those pesky blemishes, bumps, and blackheads at bay!

I love that it wasn’t only effective, but it’s gentle and lightweight as well. It amazed me that it kept my skin so smooth and blemish free without over-drying it. My pores became smaller overtime (within the first week I could see a difference).

Since it’s so lightweight it’s easy to use both in the morning and at night. I started using it at night (AT first) because I didn’t want a bad reaction (redness or irritation) to pop up during the day. When I seen there weren’t any side effects, I used it under makeup (AND day moisturizer and toner)
without a problem. I couldn’t even tell it was there. It was protecting me all day! Winking smile

It isn’t scented and it leaves the skin feeling so refreshed! There isn’t any sort of residue or film left over, just plain CLEAN skin! I really like and use it on a daily basis, more often than not more than once.
