Product Review: SLMD Skincare

May 26, 2017

Y’all I have found the BEST skincare for acne prone skin. Acne isn’t cool. It’s painful and can take a toll on your self-esteem.

I’ve struggled with acne off and on since my sophomore year of college. Prior to that, I’d get an occasional blemish, but nothing too bad. I’ve been to several dermatologists, tried every cream and lotion under the sun, but never found anything that worked.

Before I moved last year, I was getting facials every 2 weeks and they really helped keep my skin clear. I was fortunate enough to have some really bomb insurance and they were covered so all I had to pay was the co-pay. I moved and changed jobs, the consistent treatments went away, and the acne came back.

I went to a new dermatologist, got new prescription, and bought new skincare. It all seemed to be working until about a month ago when my face just freaked out and broke out like crazy.

Enter Dr. Pimple Popper.

I first heard of Dr. Sandra Lee aka Dr. Pimple Popper on Buzzfeed. She went viral for her YouTube videos of her popping pimples and other medical things that make my stomach turn. I would check her Instagram from time to time and I saw she had skincare coming out. I couldn’t order fast enough!

I decided to give it a try even though every other 3 step kit I have tried didn’t work. I ordered the 30 day kit for $45. I started using it April 25, morning and night.

30 day kit products

The 30 Day Kit includes
–Cleanser, 2.0 fl oz
–AM Acne Lotion, 0.7 fl oz
–PM Clarifying Treatment, 0.7 fl oz
–Moisturizer, 1.0 fl oz

–AM Acne Lotion

PM Routine
–Clarifying Treatment
*I removed my makeup with my cleansing oil first and used an exfoliator a few times a week in addition to these products.

I have finally found some products that work. They keep my skin clear and they don’t dry my face out. I ordered the 60 day kit before I was done with the 30 day kit because I didn’t want to run out and have to wait on shipping.

The 60 Day Kit is $80 and inlcudes
–Cleanser, 4.2 fl oz
–Clarifying Treatment, 1.7 fl oz
–Acne Lotion, 1.7 fl oz
–Facial Moisturizer, 2.0 fl oz

These pictures speak for themselves. THIS STUFF WORKS, Y’ALL. I know I sound like the OxiClean guy (RIP), but I’m just super excited to finally have found something that works. I currently have some dark spots and slight scarring, but no active breakouts.

This post isn’t sponsored, I paid for these products myself.

    My Dad LOVES watching her videos LOL! I had no idea she was coming out with a line, but holy moly – it looks like it’s working wonders for you! That is SO exciting!! I had pretty terrible skin my sophomore year in college as well! I remember hiding in my dorm not wanting to go anywhere – it really is such a frustrating/embarrassing/stressful thing that feels so out of our control. I’m so glad you’re having success with this line – it’s a great feeling to find products that really work for you!! XOXO

      It’s my guilty pleasure too. I can’t handle some of them though haha I was the same way. I didn’t want to go anywhere without piling the makeup on and it definitely affected my self-confidence. It sounds dramatic, but this stuff is life changing!

    I haven’t heard of this stuff before! It’s always so amazing to find skin care that works!! Too often when I have breakouts I find that nothing helps, so I know the struggle!

      It’s pretty new and I haven’t heard much about it. It’s so frustrating trying to find the right combination of products to get your skin clear.

    Wow!! I am impressed!! Your skin looks amazing!!! Oh my gosh, I will have to look into this later if I get a bad breakout again. It took me nearly 6 months to get my skin healthy again and just barely in finding certain things work out best. Nice review though! I’m glad you found something that works!

      It blew my mind too. It’s so hard to find products that work well. Since I’ve found them, I’m sticking to them. Thanks!
