Pigmentation and uneven skin tone has plagued me for a long time. I am prone to having dark circles, and a “dark chin’’ as most brown people are. This may be due to hormonal imbalances and damage from the sun. (I blame standing in long assembly lines facing the sun during-my schooling career- we didn’t know about spf yet)
Naturally I jumped at the idea when I was contacted by Dermoprof to test their 3 step skincare system. It promises even skin tone and a brighter complexion. What’s not to love?
PIGMENTO B SYSTEM
I received a pack of the Pigmento B Cleanser, booster serum and cream.
The cleanser claims to invigorate tired and dull looking skin .
The Booster serum claims to control sun induced uneven tone / dark marks.
The cream claims to improve and manage uneven-toned skin / dark marks.
I could do with the help with all of the above! Read on to see if these products live up to these claims.
I was pleasantly surprised by the ingredient list. If you follow me on instagram you will know how particular I am about skincare ingredients. The most EXCITING ingredient that screams out to me are TRANEXAMIC ACID and NIACINAMIDE.
The rest of the world is only waking up to the wonders of this ingredient NOW. While DERMOPROF has carefully chosen this ingredient YEARS ago! It is a miracle ingredient for TREATING AND PREVENTING dark spots, pigmentation, melasma, uneven skin tone. WOW indeed. The fact that it is listed high up on the ingredient list, means that it is one of the main ingredients.
The good news is that it is safe to use for all skin types and all skin colors. It works at treating and preventing pigmentation on the surface as well as in the epidermis. It also calms the skin and helps to restore the skin barrier.
Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, improves skin barrier, minimises the appearance of pores, reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Also very beneficial for those suffering from acne. While vitamin C is very popular for brightening however it can be very irritating. Niacinamide is more suitable for all skin types.
Other notable and equally impressive ingredients include:
MANDELIC ACID: accelerates skin turnover thereby helping to remove dead skin that will otherwise lead to a dull complexion.
GERANIUM OIL: anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, tightens the skin, promotes the regeneration of new skin.
GREEN TEA EXTRACT: antioxidant, skin soothing, improves the appearance of sun damaged skin.
LINOLEIC ACID: keeps the skin barrier intact. It keeps water in and irritants out, reduces acne breakouts.
LACTIC ACID: improves signs of aging, fades hyperpigmentation, softens wrinkles, stimulates collagen renewal.
It is recommended that the DERMOPROF system be used on its own, and not in conjunction with other skincare products. This is because the other products may interfere with the efficacy of the ingredients.
I must admit that I felt apprehensive about giving up my trusted skincare regimen to try this skincare system. My skin was finally doing so well: even skin tone, no breakouts. I also see my skincare routine as selfcare. I was not sure how to feel about a shorter routine.
The thought of the pigmentation around my chin and neck clearing encouraged me.
I noticed by applying the cleanser to my wet hands , lathering my hands first and then applying it to my face worked better. I was able to create a more satisfying lather. I still miss my toner, especially after removing my makeup.
The face cleanser feels nourishing and not drying at all. After lathering it feels more like a cream cleanser.
The serum feels like a thick gel.
The moisturiser is also very nourishing. It applies and absorbs quickly. A little goes a long way.
Note: when trying out new skincare – it will take a few days for your skin to adjust to the texture of the new produts.
Skincare is a slow game. It takes a few weeks to see results. I was very impressed with the ingredient list. My skin is noticeably brighter and more even toned. I am receiving more compliments about my skin! I am very pleased with using these products.
Products that contain TRANEXAMIC ACID and NIACINAMIDE are usually available only at pricey medical aesthetic stores. Only one VERY expensive brand is available which retails for over R1500.
Thank you Dermoprof for keeping the average woman in mind. Thank you for bring EFFECTIVE and AFFORDABLE products of the highest QAULITY. The cleanser and cream is sold as a duo R380. The booster serum is sold separetly R280. I highly recommend getting all 3 products if you are looking for the best results.
The regimen is very easy for anyone to follow. Cleanser->Serum->Cream. Repeat morning and night.
I love supporting local brands. Dermoprof is made in South Africa.
There is a 50% SALE currently on their website. It is a STEAL. They are delivering during lockdown. Now is the best time to invest in a clearer and brighter complexion.
Ps. Get ready for the compliments coming your way. I’ve been asked if I bought a new foundation, if I have been for a facial, I’ve been told that my skin is glowing and so on.
#gifted. Although the product was gifted to me, my experience is true. The ingredients are scientifically proven to work. Head to my instagram post to look at the before and after pictures to decide for yourself.
