Trying to decide which skin lightening product to use can be a difficult under taking so we did one of our in-depth reviews, examining the ingredients, clinical research, side effects, and customer quality reviews. We also went through hundreds of user comments from various websites. We took all of the information and condensed to give you the highlights and lowlights of this product.
How the Product Works
ZENMED’S Skin Eraser is a potent, triple-acid exfoliator that provides a gradual, esthetician-grade peel effect. It works to minimize dark spots, scarring and even skin tones. It’s 100% petrochemical-free and is vegetarian based. The main ingredients include ascorbic acid, glycolic acid and lactic acid. It’s a good product to use on all skin types and imperfections.
The Ascorbic-Glycolic-Lactic acid fortified treatment effectively exfoliates the top layers of the skin helping to minimize dullness, wrinkles, imperfections, hyper-pigmentation, discoloration and fine lines. It contains esthetician-grade 30% glycolic acid, pH 3.5.
- Product Speed
- Long Term Results
This is not the right product to buy if you are looking for an effective lightening product. After using it for a few weeks, we saw no change in the look of hyper-pigmentation or acne scaring.
Side Effects – Possible Irritant
This scrub contains hydroxy acids, which can also cause mild skin irritation, swelling, redness, itching, and skin discoloration. While most of the people who reviewed this product said that it didn’t bother their skin, some claimed their skin felt dry and itchy. The other problem is that scrub feels very rough on the skin.
Texture – No Residue
This product really didn’t do much in regards to lightening the skin, but works okay as an exfoliator. The reviews on Amazon were mixed between negative and favorable, so it’s really a toss-up as to whether it will work or not. It’s very abrasive on the skin and tends to leave the skin dry. Using a washcloth would probably work just as well and cost less money.
ZENMED has a few known lightening products included in the list of ingredients. The problem with many of these lightening agents is that they come with a list of possible side effects. After using this for scrub for a few weeks, there was no improvement in the overall look of dark spots or scarring.
This product might be okay if you are looking for a good scrub to remove the outer, dead layer of skin, but that’s about it. It really didn’t make a significant change in the tone of the skin.
The Bottom Line
This lightening exfoliant is not rated high on our list of skin brightening products. It’s made with Ascorbic-Glycolic-Lactic acid, which can irritate the skin over time. This is not the right product to buy if you are looking for an effective lightening product. After using it for a few weeks, we saw no change in the look of hyper-pigmentation or acne scaring. Another undesirable thing about this scrub is the super coarse texture. It feels rough as it goes across the skin.
