KEY FEATURES: Tammy Fender Clarifying Dermagel decongests pores by removing impurities and reducing excess oil.

QUICK REVIEW: I use this non-drying purifying treatment in place of harsh acne treatments several times a month when my skin in misbehaving. The natural formulation soothes irritation (from trying too many products) and reduces blemishes overnight.
Tammy Fender Clarifying Dermagel | Formula No. DG-357 ($72) is a reliable and enjoyable alternative to harsh acne treatments or for those with overactive skin who prefer more natural products. I have often delved into natural products with hopes of obtaining the same glossy, luxury results as their less-than-green counterparts – but was left with less-than-desirable results. Unlike more vigilant organic/natural/vegan beauty seekers – for me, results are first and foremost.
I originally bought Tammy Fender’s Cleansing Milk Lavender & Fo-Ti | Formula No. C-129 ($55), which was a nice cleanser, but nothing I could get excited about. I adored her Bulgarian Rose Water | Formula No. W-238 ($65) and Purifying Cleansing Gel – Spearmint & Alfalfa | Formula No. C-121 ($50)[READ REVIEW] which remains one of my favorite cleansers – natural or not.
Tammy Fender’s packaging has an apothecary look and feel with amber glass bottles and jars with simple white labels.
Clarifying Dermagel | Formula No. DG-357 has a light gel-like cream texture that absorbs well and has a mild tea tree scent. When first applied, Clarifying Dermagel has a fresh, cooling feel that is very soothing for oily, acne prone skin. While this treatment mildly and effectively helps to calm impure skin conditions, there is virtually no drying, irritation or redness.
While this is a treatment for oily/acne prone skin, I use this as a lightweight moisturizer over a serum to give my skin a slight boost of moisture from the jojoba oil in this product. The product take a bit longer to work than traditional acne medications or treatments – but the absence of itchy, red, flaky skin is worth the exercise in patience. Overall, while this doesn’t “cure” acne, skin is left looking healthier and feels more comfortable.
Whether you are looking for a soothing natural product for oily skin – or just a gentle acne treatment that actually improves the overall appearance of overactive skin types, Tammy Fender Clarifying Dermagel | Formula No. DG-357 is a reliable choice for those who don’t mind spending a little extra for the luxury look and feel.
