Zenmed Skin Support Review And Competition Ends 24/08

As I get older I find my skin gets more sensitive over time, with some redness or as they call it in skin care terms - rosacea. For my cleansing routine, I generally use Superdrug micellar wipes and Nivea sensitive toner. My skin I would describe as combination, so if I do use a moisturiser it has to be a light, non-oily and has an SPF factored in. Even with these products, I find I have the occasional breakout.

So when Zenmed contacted me to offer me a chance to review some of their products for sensitive skin I was looking forward to trying these products. 

Maybe they would be calming to my skin and help to settle it down. 



Zenmed was founded in 1999 and is a Dr formulated natural skin care brand. They believe that treating troubled skin shouldn't mean straying from a natural, holistic foundation, so all the products are cruelty-free and either vegan or have a vegetarian formula. 

Zenmed produces three main types of products:-
1. for acne
2. for scars
3. for rosacea
4. for anti-aging

The packaging is also 100% recyclable which I feel is important in this day and age.

Rosacea is a condition that can be really troubling and can include spots, burning and stinging of the face, redness and enlarged blood vessels. There are many causes including stress, exposure to sunlight, hot or cold weather and alcohol.  I was hoping that using the products by Zenmed especially formulated for rosacea would keep it under control and help minimise flare ups.

Facial cleansing gel

This sensitive skin formulated product is designed to cleanse and balance oils without the dryness of soap. Particularly good for normal or oily skin, you apply onto a wet face and neck, massage in a generous amount and then rinse off with water. 

I really liked this product, it didn't make my skin feel tight just very clean.

AHA/BHA complex

This alcohol-free formulation helps unblock pores and prevent blemishes and blackheads as well as balancing oil. You apply to a clean face on a cotton wool pad, avoiding the eyes, nostrils lips and ear lobes. 

Personally, as this is not to be used when going into direct sunlight and it could cause sensitivity I would use it once a week at first, perhaps on a day where you are relaxing indoors. I have used this over a couple of weeks and with the combination of other products my skin does appear less spotty. Will continue to use this for sure.

Support Serum 

The support serum is an anti-redness serum packed full of botanicals and vitamin C. Apply a thin layer to cleansed skin at night. Apply the desired moisturiser over the top. If you are using it during the day they recommend you use an SPF. 

They say with regular use this product dramatically improves the appearance and texture of mature and damaged and weakened skin, so I was excited to try this. The product is fragranced with rose, rosewood, lavender and other essential oils. As it is so fragranced I thought it would give my skin a breakout but surprisingly it didn't.

Anti-redness mask

The anti-redness mask has the active ingredient Willow Bark Extract. This extract is known to soothe and calm irritated skin. Apply the gel to the face and leave for up to 15 minutes, then rinse off with plenty of cool water.

This gel felt lovely and cooling on the skin. It really felt like it was doing good. The gel is fairly runny so be aware when you squeeze it out of the tube. My new favourite skincare product my redness seemed to have gone done even with one application. Only time will tell how well it will do over time but for instant relief from redness try it! 

Skin protecting lotion with SPF 30

Ideal for hypersensitive skin this is a light oil-free natural product, ideal for preventing UV flare ups. This lotion also has anti-ageing hyaluronic acid and soothes the skin with Aloe Vera and Cucumber.

This lotion dries to a matt finish so is perfect if you have an oily t-zone. It is also water resistant for up to 2 hours. Apply 15 minutes before sun exposure. I would also use this on my chest, if I was wearing a V neck t-shirt, as when you get older this area can show signs of ageing with sun damage.  Fragrance-free it won't clash with any perfume you are wearing. 

Oil free moisturiser with SPF 30

This light oil-free moisturiser is perfect for wearing alone or under makeup and provides protection from the sun with an SPF of 30.

Particularly recommended for acne prone skin I loved the light lotion. Again being fragrance-free it won't clash with your perfume or fragranced body products. 

If you wish to try the Zenmed products they also offer a money back guarantee so you don't really have anything to lose do you? Check out the terms on their website.






A tester before and after treatment for Rosacea

My opinion

I really liked the products, in particular, the cleaning gel as it really got my skin clean and the anti-redness mask as I feel this really worked to calm down my redness. Using the mask on a regular basis will be something I will continue with for sure, and I can see this would be a fabulous 'emergency' treatment for rosacea.

  3. First I have come across this brand, and it's products. Would probably try most if not all products. Unfortunately skin has become prone to dryness as times :- Possibly related to ageing and/ or weather conditions. Also prone to redening of face in hot Enviroments, have family member who has Roseacea. Skin seems to need some TLC ( Tender Loving skin Care), and maybe these products would provide that.
