epidermx question

I was thinking of purchasing a pro treatment cream for 40 bucks. I was wondering if this is good in fighting off pits and red marks. Is this stuff ok to use with other poducts as well such as moisterizers and such? Any info will help. thanks

Re: epidermx question

Yes, its for dealing with scars and hyperpigmentation. It's best used with camellia oil as a moisturizer.

Re: epidermx question

are you supposed to put it all over your face or just on the affected areas?

Re: epidermx question

Allover your face as it will exfoliate everything.

Re: epidermx question

thanks. I'm looking into purchasing this with the camellia oil. Do you recommend a good face wash to use with this?

Re: epidermx question

I'm not sure. I haven't recieved mine yet and never worried about that. I'm just going to use my cetaphil for sensitive skin cleanser.

Re: epidermx question

i've used epidermx twice now and i'm absolutely stunned at how effective it is. i've had a red mark since august which hadn't shown any sign of shifting but it has gotten lighter with each use. the camellia oil is a joy to put on too, it's not heavy and soaks right in even into MY greasy skin. my pores have reduced in size considerably too. if you're a make up user, use a cleanser which definitely will get rid of ALL of your makeup cos you don't want to be rubbing that into your pores. i like oil of olay daily facials for sensitive skin (gentle but effective at make up removal) at night then in the morning a 100% natural but effective cleanser by liz earle that comes with muslin cloths (for added exfoliation).

also one thing to note is make sure you follow the epidermx instructions. you have to rub at your face for ages until you see dead skin balling up. if you don't see this you're just exfoliating and not peeling. then your face may be a touch on the red side but don't worry cos it goes away within an hour! i thought this process would make my skin kick out even more oil (cos of all that rubbing) but i have to say i am less oily now too.

Re: epidermx question

sorry for all the questions, but can you still use this stuff if you have some zits on your face?

Re: epidermx question

Bad idea to use it on active acne...irritates it and makes it worse. You need your face to calm down before you start using it. Also, it aggravated sensitive areas. For example, i tend to break out right near my mouth, and its generally sensitive. If I use it there, it worsens the acne...

Re: epidermx question

This has not aggravated my acne at all, actually it has helped clear it! Thank God for epidermx. I've been using it for 4 months, and it has really helped! I use gentle cetaphil cleanser, epidermx and the silkia camilia oil and I also use neutrogena sunscreen spray 35 spf every morning. This combination has worked well for me.
