I don’t know about you but I love it when something new happens because for a lot of the time everything is very same same…like oh a new hyaluronic acid…wow!
So when I found out that a new dermatology service was launching I was really excited. This is the second service of its type the original being Dermatica (full review here) I really love that there are no options for people in the UK to make use of these services as not everyone can get privately or through the NHS.
As I said above Skin + Me is a personalised dermatology service that you pay a certain amount of money each month for access to prescription strength medications like Tretinoin, Adapalene, Clindamycin etc
Its really easy to use Skin + Me all you have to do is visit their website and fill out a questionnaire and send pictures of your face (front, left and right) and the dermatologist will choose what will work best for you and prescribe it for you, I was given Tretinoin, Azelaic Acid and Clindamycin.
I’ve been using this for at least 3 weeks now and since I’m not new to retinoids I haven’t had any irritation or peeling which is good. I think the biggest difference to this formula is the addition of Clindamycin as I have always had acne and I’m 30 but since Clindamycin was added to my prescription literally no acne! I haven’t had a single breakout since I started using this.
I feel like the one area that Skin + Me has Dermatica beaten like literally blown out of the water is their packaging. Skin + Me has a daily doser which is just amazing. This type of packaging gives you a measured amount of product every day so you don’t underuse or overuse the product, you get just the right amount.
As you can see on the Skin + Me packaging it is marked with numbers and a moon to tell you when to use it. You just twist the packaging and it gives you your allotted amount to use
My problem with Dermatica was it was a pump and I never knew how much to use and that let to some irritation on more than one occasion because I didn’t know if I had enough.
If you were to choose between Dermatica or Skin + Me right now I would suggest Skin + Me simply because their packaging is miles ahead of Dermatica.
Skin + Me is £19.99 a month, your first month is free you only have to pay £3.50 for delivery. You can find them at skinandme.com
