Initial Thoughts: Safeguard Derma Sense

I’m not a fan of summer season for various reasons: I hate the heat, doing anything in this weather is just horrid, the sun turns my normally cold shower water warm (making it worse when I just want to cool down during a hot day but I don’t have ice cold water!), and because the summer heat is the worst on my skin.

I normally have dry/sensitive skin to deal with, and since I hit my 20’s, I’ve dealt less and less with acne problems as I’ve grown years further away from puberty. From being a teenager dealing with acne, to finally growing out of the imbalanced hormones and skin problems, it gets frustrating when there’s a new red spot resting on your face just begging for attention; I’m no longer used to it! The summer is when I break out the most because I sweat more often, and that just gets worse whenever I step outside into the polluted air of Metro Manila. It doesn’t matter if you’ll go home later to wash your face, spending hours outside sweating is enough time for your skin to accumulate dirt, dead skin cells and oil that get trapped in your pores.

Rewind to my teenage years where I would watch TV and see commercials and would come across Safeguard, a soap that rids of 99.9% of germs from your skin, and I remember thinking, “I wonder if they’ll ever produce a facial wash. I could use that kind of cleaning action because germs do cause a lot of my pimples.” and finally, ten years later, they produce what I’ve been waiting for! Albeit 10 years late, it couldn’t have come at a better time! I’m at that age where hormones can’t be blamed for any acne but just plain ol’ dirt and germs seeping into my pores.

You’re probably wondering what makes Derma Sense so special and different from other beauty soaps out there? Well, Safeguard has always been known as the best soap in fighting germs, and has been a product widely used around the world, even in hospitals — so if anyone knows how to get rid of germs, Safeguard knows best. The Safeguard Derma Sense line has an antibacterial ingredient that targets the germs that cause acne, it’s dermatologically tested to reduce mild to moderate acne by cleaning not just the skin surface but neutralizing acne-causing germs deep down to the pores. All this helps you get the result of healthy, beautiful looking skin. Safeguard Derma Sense is available in two variants: for acne-prone skin and for sensitive skin, both available in cleanser, body wash and bar soap forms. Because I normally have dry/sensitive skin, I’m currently using the Derma Sense cleanser appropriate for my skin type for Sensitive Skin, but as an acne preventative measure, I also use the Safeguard Derma Sense for Acne Prone skin.

Here’s my cleansing regimen:

On days I’m just at home, I cleanse twice a day (morning and night) with the Derma Sense Cleanser for sensitive skin. I always apply a pea sized amount in circular strokes for a minute before washing it off with warm water. My experience with Derma Sense for sensitive skin is quite good. I had no issues of my face feeling incredibly dry or tight after patting it dry (which is a common problem with me for most soaps/cleansers), so I think this is an actual product I can finish until I can’t squeeze anything from the bottle anymore.

On days I’ve makeup (little to full-face makeup), I always opt for the Derma Sense Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin because it removes all the grime and build up that my face has accumulated during the entire day. I also apply a little more than a pea-sized amount on my fingers because sometimes makeup can get quite hard to get rid of. I always thought cleansers for acne prone skin will be too harsh for my sensitive skin because I assumed it contained ingredients to get rid of something that isn’t on my face, but I couldn’t be more wrong. Even dry/sensitive skinned people get acne. I always had this weird notion that only oily skinned people were prone to it, so I was afraid that this skin cleanser would dry me out completely. I was wrong again. After using the cleanser, I noticed that my skin actually felt more hydrated than it did after I used the cleanser for the sensitive skin. This is the very reason why I switch between the two cleansers, and they’ve worked for me so far.

As of right now, I’ve broken out with at least one-two pimples a week, which is not usual for me, so I can conclude that the summer weather is the culprit for this change in my skin. I’m going to continue using the two products together to see how my skin fairs, and I’ll write another follow-up blog post regarding the products. Gab, my boyfriend, has been having acne issues as well so I think I’ll share with him some of my products and see how his skin fairs with it. Hopefully I’ll see him soon so I can get him to join the product test!

If you’re having issues with acne or at least want a preventative measure, I’m inviting you to try out Safeguard Derma Sense! I really like this product so far, and I haven’t really seen anything negative about it. Of course, I’ll have to keep testing it to see to what extent this product works, which is why there will be a  follow up review!

    I also blame this weather for my breakouts. It’s quite unusual for me to have pimples on my cheeks. One pimp is fine, but more is horrifying. I’m not really used to having pimples, hay. Good thing you posted about Safeguard Derma Sense. I’ve read about it from other bloggers and they’ve liked it, too. I should try this asap. :)

    I tried the Derma Sense bar soap. I didn’t quite like it. My face felt really dry after using it. It did its job though. Acne and even scars have gone less visible now. :(

    I’ve been using the one for acne prone skin since March and it really works. I thinks it’s true that you’ll see results after 8 weeks. I have bad case of pimples before but now I only have breakouts before my period. :)

    I do agree with you! Safeguard derma sense helps me to get rid of my pimples too. The first breakout of my pimples September, last year (2014) I think the reason why pimples occured on my face is that I travel a lot, commute going to school, ride on a jeepney and all the kinds of dust,smoke went to my face and I can say that the culprit was the Pollution. Im not really used to pimples, so when I had the first breakout, I really don’t know what to do! I’ve tried everything to prevent it, tried different products I am seeing in the TV commercials but instead of helping my face to recover from acnes, it makes my face so dry and more pimples appeared like they were begging for attention! But one day my mom bought a safeguard soap (the original one) and that time I almost quit on my acne issues, I said to myself that I’ll just consult to a dermatologist. But when I unintentionally used the safeguard my mom bought. Wow. Just an anwered prayer. But it’s not instant huh. Hahaha :) I used it for 3 days and I noticed that the acnes on my face slowly fading without drying. So I decided to continue using the safeguard soap but when I got to know about the Safeguard Derma sense (especially made for acnes and sensitive skin) I switch to it and I can finally say that my face is back to normal. No more dryness, no more big and red pimples begging for attention, no more sufferings. That’s it! Back to soft and smooth skin. Thanks to Safeguard Derma Sense and Thanks God! God Bless everyone. :)

    ive been struggling with breakouts since summer.. I think this was the worst summer heat ever causing me a lot of breakouts.. Im tryn to find what products can easily dry out my pimples and at the same time removing all the dirt. Since birth, were using safeguard and i saw it on camie’s ig post and i bought acne bar soap and derma sense facial wash. After 2 days of using it, it dried out faster. I use derma sense facial wash in the morning and removing my make up with acne bar soap from safeguard. Such a relief! I believe in the power of safeguard removing dirt. More powers!:)
