Product Review: Derm10

Dear Friends

For those who visit my blog fequently, you would know by now that I have very oily and pimple-prone skin. I have been battling with acne during my younger days. I suffered from serious acne due to hormonal imbalance when I was studying in uni. Hence, I have bad acne scarring all over my face until today. 

Recently, I am trying out Derm 10 products for a few weeks already and would like to share with you my thoughts about them.
About Derm 10
Derm10 is a salon product created by dermatologist. It has a higher concentration of active ingredients compared to counter products. The products are manufactured in Malaysia but the formulation is from US.

The products that I tried are:
Derm10 Comodone Complex , HA Gel , Smoothening Complex

Derm10 Comodone Complex , HA Gel , Smoothening Complex

Derm10 Anti-Blemish Cleansing Complex & Anti-Blemish Toning Complex


Derm10 Comodone Complex
Product Description: 
A combination of herbal and botanical extracts known to be effective for comodone (black heads and white heads) treatment. Regular application helps to dissolve keratin impacted in comodones, This complex also has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial activities.
Active Ingredients: Salicylic Acid, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf extract (Rosemary), Betula Alba Leaf extract and some other leaves extracts

How to use?
After toner, use 1-2 pumps and pat on the skin (for Day & Night use)

What I like about Derm10 Comodone Complex?
1. It has a herbal smell due to its ingredients
2. It is very light
However, my skin is slow to absorb it. My beautician did comment that my skin is slow to absorb. i don't know why.

What to Expect?
I find that after using for 1 week, when I apply light pressure to squeeze my white and black heads, they came off very easily. I recently went for facial and the beautician commented that my skin is very clean with very little white/black heads. 

Who would I recommend?
People who has white or black heads

Price: RM96 for 15ml

My Rating : 4/5



Derm10 Smoothening Complex
Product Description: 
A gentle lotion containing Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) to exfoliate excessive corneocytes. Regular use will also result in a smoother texture.

Active Ingredients: 
14% AHA (the AHA concentration is much higher that counter products), Glycolic acid, Stearic acid, Bisabolol, Aloe vera

How to use?
1. After toner and Comodone Complex, I use 1 pump and pat on the skin. Avoid eye area. Do not rub in.
2. This product must only be used at night only. Do not expose your skin to the sunlight when using this product. 
I was instructed to use the products for 2 weeks and stop for 2 weeks. Repeat the cycle until you are happy with the result.

 What to Expect?
1. Immediately after I applied on my skin, I felt a slight tingling sensation. Some people may experience a mild burning sensation. The effect will go away in a while.
2. Over a period of 2 weeks, I can see that my skin texture has slight improvement.
3. I also experienced some redness and slight peeling after using for 10 days. 

Who would I recommend?
People who has severe acne scars and uneven skin

Price: RM96 for 15ml 

My Rating : 4/5


Derm10 HA Gel
Product Description: 
A truly powerful, natural and oil free humectant, to attract water molecules to the skin, preventing water evaporation, and stimulating new cell growth. A major component for skin tissue repair. Recommended for all skin types to achieve a full and plump look to the skin.

Active Ingredients: Purified Water & 100% Hyaluronic Acid

How to use?
After toner and Comodone Complex I use only one pump and pat on the skin (for Day & Night use). Followed with moisturiser. I omit moisturiser most of the time.
Note: I only use at night when I am not using the Smoothening Complex (2 weeks resting phase)

What I like about Derm10 HA Gel?
1. It is 100% Hyaluronic Acid
2. It is oil free. the texture is watery and transparent.
3. It applies smoothly onto the skin, the weightless feeling is great.
4. It is very hydrating
However, my skin is slow to absorb it due to no apparent reason.

Who would I recommend?
People who has dehydrated skin

Price: RM138 for 30ml

My Rating : 4/5


Note: Please excuse me for showing you these gross pictures. Even though my skin does not show drastic improvement, it felt smoother and cleaner after 2 weeks of usage. With continued use, I hope to see more improvements.

                                                                            Before


                                                                       After 2 weeks


Overall, I am quite pleased with the above Derm 10 products that I have tried. I feel that it is not too harsh for my skin. I would like to thank Derm 10 for letting me experience their products.

Note: I am not paid for writing this review. I am writing this review based on my experience using Derm 10 products and all opinions are not influenced by Derm 10. You may experience similar or different result due to different skin types and conditions.

Do share if you have experience using these products before.
Thanks for visiting me.
