I was contacted by The Sample Store to review Eucerin’s 3 Step DermoPURIFYER Range. My impression of this brand is expensive. I have always thought that products from Eucerin are not wallet friendly thus wasn’t really interested in them. I didn’t even bother to look through what products they have to offer. And it’s a shame. Because now I realized that their products are rather amazing but the prices are not that scary after all!
Eucerin’s DermoPURIFYER Range:
The range which I am reviewing is the DermoPURIFYER range. It means that all products from this range consists an optimal 2% Lactic Acid formulation that actually helps to diminish skin problems. Commonly found and well known ingredients are usually Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Oxide. But those are considered quite harsh on the skin. Lactic acid is a more natural active ingredient. They can be found in skin thus even sensitive skin can take it.
” Eucerin® DermoPURIFYER range is oil-free, has anti-bacterial properties, and is non-comedogenic to prevent skin irritation and is compatible with any acne medication. Highly recommended by dermatologists, the range can also be used as a preventative measure against common skin problems. ” – Eucerin’s Press Release
How does Lactic Acid efficiently and gently eliminate acne?
1. It targets only specific clogged pores where acne originates
2. It gently calms inflamed acne and unblocks clogged pores without drying out the skin
3. It fights acne-causing bacteria and stops the formation of new acne
4. It promises a healthy, clearer complexion in three weeks
Sounds rather amazing right?
1). Eucerin’s DermoPURIFYER’s Cleanser
” The light oil-free cleanser is clinically proven to treat acne problems effectively and gently by reducing excess sebum while it deeply cleanses. ” – Eucerin’s Press Release
This cleanser feels so good! This is what I always think whenever I use this cleanser. It does lather up but doesn’t foam a whole lot, which I’m liking very much and am looking for in a cleanser. To me, a good cleanser needs to lather up so I would feel that I’m actually cleansing my skin. But it can’t foam a whole lot as that will strip off the good oils which our faces need. When using the cleanser, my face feels so smooth and soft. Note, this feels when I’m USING the cleanser.
The scent is another plus point. I love the scent! I’m not good at describing scents so I’m not even gonna try describing it. But it feels amazing, kind of like your skin is being pampered.
The packaging is another plus point for me. Love the cap! It’s easy to control the amount of product yet it will not get messy. You know how product may get over the cap and you have to wash the product before putting it back? Hate that! With this cap, the product is easily flowed out in a non-messy way.
The after feeling of using this product is AWESOME! My skin feels smooth and soft and feels clean. Not too clean, but just nice. My skin doesn’t feels tight but comfortable. Ah! I just love it! Sadly, this feeling is not for long, because I have to apply toner and moisturizer after that.
I just realized that I don’t have any cons for this cleanser! LOVE IT. I can foresee myself purchasing it. But maybe not, as I like to switch around and try new products. But will definitely use this cleanser up!
2). Eucerin’s DermoPURIFYER Scrub
” This mild daily scrub comes with Lactic acid beads for gentle, effective deep cleansing that removes blackheads and refines pores. ” – Eucerin’s Press Release
Oh My Gosh! You have no idea how much I LOVE this product! I fell in <3 immediately after the 1st time I used it. Look at those Blue-Green beads! Those are the Lactic Acid Beads. And nope, they are not coarse. They are super gentle and makes my skin oh-so-soft! Similar to the cleanser, it doesn’t really foams that much but I can feel it exfoliating my skin because of the beads. Like sugar, the beads will “melt”, in the 2nd picture on the right, you can’t really see any beads left. I use that as a gauge that I should stop scrubbing my face.
The scent is exactly the same as the cleanser. Love the smell! It’s fresh and just super pampered to use it.
The after feeling of using the scrub is AWESOME! I have whiteheads at the corners of my mouth, the corner of my nose (beside the nostrils), on my nose. After using the scrub, they disappeared! They actually disappeared! They don’t disappear even when I used harsh scrubs like St Ives’. But this scrub just makes my skin so smooth and so soft! I’m really liking the scrub.
What’s another pro? It so gentle that it can be used daily! When I like a product, I would keep thinking about it in my head and can’t wait for the next opportunity to use it. Scrubs normally aren’t for daily use. But this one is! And I’m so happy because I can feel pampered everyday! I’m definitely going to use this scrub from now on and can see myself purchasing it.
3). Eucerin’s DermoPURIFYER Creme Gel
” Contrary to popular belief, moisturizing oily skin is key in regulating excess sebum production in the skin. The water-based crème gel helps reduces acne within three weeks while keeping skin hydrated and oil-free. “ – Eucerin’s Press Release
” The key product from the Eucerin® DermoPURIFYER range is the DermoPURIFYER Crème Gel designed to hydrate the skin and regulate excess sebum formation. Contrary to popular belief, oily skin should be moisturised regularly. When skin is properly hydrated, it is less likely to release extra sebum (oil) that contributes to clogged pores resulting in acne or pimple breakouts. By regularly applying the water-based, oil-free crème gel, skin feels refreshed, hydrated and acne free. ” – Eucerin’s Press Release
When squeezed out, the gel feels quite thick as seen in the picture. But actually, it is quite thin and feels light. As can be seen in the second picture on the right. It spreads out easily and feels smooth when spreading out. But here is a con. My skin do not feel hydrated when using this moisturizer. After applying the creme gel, my skin feels tight and uncomfortable. I had to apply another moisturizer so my skin feels like it’s breathing normally. It does leaves your skin matte straight after applying but it doesn’t hydrate very well. It said to hydrate well but I do not think likewise.
I don’t have acne but a few blemishes here and there. But I do not notice a big difference in drying out my pimples and such. Maybe because it needs about 3 weeks to work, which I haven’t use that long of a period yet.
The creme gel’s scent is not as strong as the cleanser and the scrub, but definitely has the same scent, but faint. It’s subtle and not as strong as the other products.
A huge con is that it makes my face super oily after a few hours! My theory is that: Since my skin feels dehydrated after using the creme gel, obviously my skin feels that it is in need of water. Skin will produce oil when it feels dehydrated, so my skin would produce loads of oil to make up the dehydrated feeling. I may be wrong though, but that’s what I think. My face has never felt that oily before. Yucks! Hate it.
I don’t think I will purchase this. I don’t even think I would use it as my moisturizer. My choice of using this product would be on my pimples or blemishes. Like a spot treatment. Maybe that would work better for me.
My Favourite Product?
Definitely the scrub! Hehe. Hope you enjoyed this review! Meanwhile, get samples below! 😀
