hi jane.. is the product really works aganist acne?....

miro uchiha said...

hello to every one.. may i ask if the product really works?

Jane said...

Hi Miro. From what I know, Derma Sense is NOT a substitute for really bad cases of acne and is not being marketed as the only solution for it. In fact, the makers say you still need to see a derma for acne. But it is supposed to be good as a preventive measure and for regular skin care regimen. I was told that washing twice a day for 8 weeks would show visible reduction in pimples. But don't wash more twice a day as it could cause contact dermatitis.

Hi. I seriously need help. I have been using it for one week now and it is leaving some marks. Nagpapantal yung skin ko sa face and parang mas dumadami pimples ko. At first maganda yung mga results then after one week after using it nagkaroon ng mga pantal and it hurts, mahapdi. Then small pimples started forming around my cheeks.

- Is that normal or something like a reaction or is my skin too sensitive? Or did I over used the soap cause I am using it three times a day after going out, waking up and before sleeping?

Thanks in advance.

Just bought it yesterday, i was told not to use it na since i dont have pimples but i wanna use it for prevention. Hope it works.

Jane said...

Hello everyone. Sorry I can't respond individually to all of those who commented since you are Anonymous. But just some input based on the event that announced this product:

1. This product, I believe, is better as prevention and complementary derma care than primary skin/acne solution
2. The derma at the Dermasense event said that any time you experience problems, stop using product and see a derma
3. Recommended use is only 2x a day for 8 weeks before improvement can be observed. DO NOT USE more than twice a day as you can also experience contact dermatitis.

I appreciate this feedback because I plan to send these to Dermasense people.

Hi jane. I started using Derma Sense for almost a week but when I looked at my face, my pimples started to spread at my face. Is it a reaction to the soap or something?

Jane said...

Hi Ma. Theresa. I would not know what is causing your reaction to the soap but if you scroll up a few comments, I have a general response to similar questions from a few others. In any case with all treatments, it is always good to consult a derma as the outbreak may also be coming from somewhere else.

mataas bah ang content ng sabon? unlike the other safeguard products

Toni Rose Collantes said...

Is that will works for sensitive skins? Coz sometimes wrong treatment to pimples make it worse.

exodus said...

Hello jane, few days ago i've started to use safeguard dermasense (prone acne) and i feel itch on my face especially on some piimples is it kind of reaction of the soap or is it not compatible on my face? Follow up question na lng po, okay lang ba na gumagamit ako ng eskinol with dalacin -C. Miss jane i'll wait for your feed back just call me Exodus. Thanks

Woah,,, Tnx Jane For Advice ,, im using Derma sense More than Twice , so i saw your post that Derma sense can only use twice a day,, Do you know ? what happen if you have dermatitis? please.
Tnx Jane :)

Jane said...

For @exodus:

Not being a derma, I cannot say where the itch is coming from. But if it persists, try a process of elimination. It could be that matapang ang Eskinol mo and it reacts with the Dermasense. So you can try not using that first and see if the itch goes away. If the itch still persists, best you just stop the soap and consult your derma about it.

Jane said...

@Zeal Gamemaster - During the Dermasense event, the derma already cautioned against using it more than twice a day so best to follow their recommended procedure. Dermatitis can only be handled by a professional derma.

Jenny Lyn Huertazuela said...

hi miss jane i aLso use derma sense . side effect nya Lang po ba ung iLabas ung dirt/pimpLes ? maLaLaking pimpLes po ung nag appear sa myka co . thanks po .

Jane said...

Hello Jenny Lyn. Thanks for writing. Since di ako dermatologist, mahirap sabihin kung bakit nagka pimples ka. From what I remember, they said na usually yung malalim na dumi umaakyat sa surface ng skin so posibleng nagdedetox lang ang skin mo. Pero kung ayaw maalis for a reasonable time of use, better to stop using and check with a derma. Just remember not to use it more than twice a day.

bird said...

Hello jane ask ko lng kung pwedeng 1time a day lng ako gagamit.tnx pls reps

Jane said...

@bird - Hello. The only reminder the people behind Derma Sense gave us was not to use it more than 2 times a day so using it only once seems fine. Just observe its effect on your skin.

Dennis Piquero said...

Is safeguard derma sense really works to many acne problems like me?

Jane said...

@Dennis Piquero - As the dermatologist said during the Derma Sense event, different people would have different skin reactions. It is being emphasized that Derma Sense will not replace derma medicines for acne especially if the acne is more advanced already. It is always good to see a derma for those cases. But being an anti-microbial facial soap, it does eliminate bacteria that would start pimples or acne. I would call it a preventive rather than a curative regimen.

Wilbert Arbolado said...

Jane, i use derma sense 2 times a day. Is it bad? And i already use it 2 weeks. And i still have big pimples and its kinda bad... Pls reply how to use it better... And I just use the soap...

Jane said...

Hello Wilbert. Sorry for late reply. The people behind Derma Sense recommend using it 2x a day MAXIMUM. You may want to read my answers to the other comments on this post because your question is similar. Different skin types may react differently. Also, it is a complement to, and not replacement of, treatment by a dermatologist for really bad skin conditions like acne.

hello . can eating nuts causes acne?

Jane said...

Hi Salman. I am not an expert on acne but from what I have been seeing on the web, peanuts seem to be a larger culprit when it comes to acne. Some sites recommend almonds and cashews as alternative if you are really a nuts fan.
