Review: SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense

SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense

SkinCeuticals latest, Blemish + Age Defense, arrived just in time for my most recent breakout. Sadly I still get them even though I've passed my thirtieth birthday.  Blemish + Age Defense was designed specifically for those of you in my position, looking to control adult acne and prevent aging. The combination of dioic acid and alpha and beta hydroxy acids inhibits oil production, controls acne causing bacteria and fights surface lines and wrinkles.

I used it for the first time three nights ago. There was significant stinging with the first application (be weary if you have uber sensitive skin); but my skin is acclimated to it now. My skin feels smoother though there is some flaking on my forehead. Product directions recommend less frequency if you have discomfort or peeling, then slowly working up to a couple of times each day. My skin has cleared up in just a few days and I'm hoping it'll stay that way. In the meantime, I'm also watching the lines around my eyes. It took a lot longer than three days to make them so expecting results this quickly is too optimistic; but I'll let you know in a few weeks!

Don't want to depress you, but my son is 25, and I've had adult acne since he was born!

This definitely sounds like something I need! Pricey, though...

any update on how it is working break-out wise? i'm curious if you are finding if it works to prevent break-outs - thanks!

It has definitely gotten my breakout under control (within three days). The only drawback was my chin is dry and flaky for the first couple of days; but that has resolved itself too.

This serum works fantastic!!! Coupled with the cleanser and toner it's even better. Yes, it can cause some dryness but the trick is that you have to use a moisturizer. The daily moisturizer stays very light on the skin but nicely hydrates. I love these Skinceutical products!!!!
