Apothederm Acne Clarifying Treatment Review

by Lisa Heath


At 32 years old, I do still have some minor acne issues.  I hate it.  So more often than not I am willing to try new skin care items and HOPE they work.

Apothoderm bottle

I’m going to be sharing Apothederm Acne Clarifying Treatment with you today.

Two reasons this product interested me – first of all, it helps to eliminate breakouts AND it helps to minimize pore size.  Those are my 2 biggest skin gripes.  I can deal with the fact I have oilier skin, or that I get flakey skin in other areas.  I’ve found decent skin care items for that, but the breakouts and pore size?  Nothing that seems to work well in the long term.  I have some short term primers and such that are temporary fixers, but I would love for them to stay that way for a bit longer.

Back to the review though!

The Apothederm Acne Clarifying Treatment instructs me to use it one time a day to start, and then gradually move up until I am using it three times a day.  This is because it can cause excessive drying.  If you build up and the dryness becomes bothersome or peeling occurs, you should back down to 1 time a day.

So I started at one time a day and moved up to 2.  My skin was dry and flakey and itchy from being so dry.  I went back to 1 time a day and that seemed to work decently well for me.

The dispenser of the bottle is a pretty standard pump bottle.  I only needed to apply a thin layer every day, so I found that 2 pumps was the perfect amount for me.  I didn’t have any left over and my face wasn’t swimming in product.

Apothederm Acne Clarifying Treatment isn’t thick but it isn’t runny and it’s light weight, which I like.  There isn’t much of a scent though.  The closest I would describe it as is a very watered down hand sanitizer. It was incredibly faint, which I like in a face product.  There is nothing worse than having to slather a smelly face product night after night.  This one is incredibly tolerable though.

Overall though, I am seeing some results.  I’ve only been using it 3 weeks and my pores do appear a little smaller and my breakouts have toned down.  I have gotten a couple pimples here and there though, but not a cluster of them like I tend to get.  If I was able to deal with the dry skin better, I would up it to 2 or 3 uses a day to speed up results, but I haven’t just yet.

I do plan on doing an updated post once the bottle is empty and say whether I just had “lucky skin” the past few weeks or if the product really is working.  Right now, I do think it’s the product, but hard to tell in just 3 weeks.

Price: $32.50 

Where To Buy: Apothederm Website

Have you tried any of the items in the Apothederm line?  I’m considering purchasing the full Acne Clarifying System Kit!


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
