I recently started getting acne a year ago at the age of 35.... I have some acne scars and am currently on Doxycycline for acne.... please I need some info on copper peptide serum? Has it worked for you? Please post if your experience has been good or bad with this serum... any feedback would be greatly appreciated... THanks
I've had very good results so far. I've been using it for 3-4 weeks, but it only took me days to see results. It seems that the effects may have been more dramatic in the beginning, but my face was also a lot worse then. I began using it right after a really bad bout of picking, and it definitely helped things heal faster and reduce risk of scarring.
Laur, I'm using it primarily for red marks. It's hard for me to tell if it's actually doing anything for preventing acne... my skin has been doing really well since I've been using both that and jojoba oil, but I don't know which one contributes more to keeping it clear. I'm so tired of waiting for old marks to heal tho, so that's my current battle (isn't it always...)
I use jojoba oil then CP Serum and I love them both. My skin has never been this smooth and my red marks are diminishing. I definetely have less new acne, but I also started Yasmin so that may be why. I did notice a few tiny breakouts when I started jojoba (like for maybe 2-3 days), but nothing when I started the CP Serum. Hope this helps.
legallyblonde, I actually did notice a tiny initial breakout when I started with the jojoba. It was just a few tiny whiteheads though, maybe over the course of the first week, and they all disappeared within a day or two and left no marks at all. I'm assuming this was due to the oil bringing things to the surface, since other people have mentioned this. I had also gotten my period that week too, so that could've made it worse. Since then, I have had no problems.
legallyblonde, sorry I forgot to answer your other question. At first I was putting the cp serum on first, waiting 10 min, the putting on the jojoba oil. Then I saw a few posters mention that they did it in the reverse order, so I've been doing that instead for the past week or so. It's been more effective to do it that way, so now I put the jojoba oil on first, wait 10 min, and apply the cp serum.
thanks shady~ what kind of jojoba oil do u use?? and i wanted to ask you if you use these products in the morning before u put on makeup or anything because lately i've been having trouble when putting makeup on-it like sloughs off because of the cp serum. i tried using the exfol serum in the morning instead of the cp, but the same sloughing happened.....so now im just putting both on at night after i wash my face- the exfol, then 20 min. later the cp~ but i just dont know if this is being as effective as applying one in the morning and one at night...do u have any thoughts?? thanks!
I use the cp serum both in the morning before makeup and at night. I haven't had any problems with anything sloughing off, but I only use concealer on red marks, not makeup all over my face anymore, so I don't know if that makes a difference. I only use jojoba oil at night though, since I don't usually have much time to get ready in the morning. It seemed like if I put the oil on and concealer a few minutes later, the concealer would get absorbed or something and not dry or cover as well. I don't have the exfol serum, so I'm not sure how that affects anything. Hope this helps a bit, sorry I don't have more suggestions.
