My ZenMed Review: A Sublime Treatment for Your Acne

Written by 35 comments

My Zenmed review

Not too long ago I hit up my sister and had her try the Exposed Acne skin care line. She was dealing with some stress breakouts and wanted quick results.

She wasn’t exactly a fan of Exposed, so when Zenmed Acne line sent me some samples of their line she was hesitant. After a little convincing she decided to give it a try and give us her ZenMed review. After all, who doesn’t love free samples!

Zenmed offers several product lines and acne is just one of them.

For over 10 years this company has been manufacturing high quality products and they back them up with a 60 day money back guarantee.

What is Zenmed?

The Zenmed Derma Cleanse line for acne is created with ingredients to tackle acne for the long run. They use alpha and beta hydroxy acids to gently exfoliate skin.

Regular exfoliation keeps pores clear and prevents acne from forming. It also helps restore your skin from previous acne damage.

Not everyone’s skin is the same and Zenmed has taken this into consideration when creating their lines. You can customize your acne care by choosing between combination skin, oily or dry/mature skin.

My sister chose the combination skin acne treatment line. This particular line balances out oily skin, while still moisturizing it. For those with combination skin, you likely suffer from an oily T-zone, enlarged pores and mild acne, and my sister was no exception.

How It Tackles Your Issues

Zenmed acne’s formulas tackle each individual skin type issues. For combination skin, the line employs AHA/BHA’s to balance out your skin’s pH. These acids also gently exfoliate your skin to slough away acne-causing clogs.

Included in this line is a Facial Cleansing Gel to be used in the morning and evening, an AHA/BHA complex for post-cleanse toning, Sebum Regulating Moisturizer that manages clogged pores and greasy skin and finally, the Derma Cleanse Acne Gel for spot treatment.

What is really great is that all of Zenmed’s products are free from parabens, petrochemicals, sulfur, synthetic dyes and animal ingredients.

As if that weren’t awesome enough, the company has chosen to be environmentally friendly by opting to use recycled materials to create their packaging and cut down on any unnecessary packing containers; hence their motto “Creating Products with Conscience.”

My Sister’s ZenMed Review

Like I said earlier, my sister was hesitant to try this product because she had a bad experience with Exposed Skin Care. Not only did the last product cause more acne to form, but her skin felt raw and abused.my zenmed review

Only 2 or 3 days into her Zenmed review, she sent me a text saying how much she loved the product. Here’s the gist of what she said about each product:

The Cleanser

It wasn’t a harsh exfoliating cleanser, rather a gentle, light consistency that left you feeling clean, but not dry.

The Toner

Cool and refreshing. So many toners contain high levels of salicylic acid and other harsh ingredients they leave your skin looking and feeling dry.

This AHA/BHA combo felt light and refreshing and didn’t suck all the moisture from your skin.

The Moisturizer

Moisturizing acne-covered skin is a big misconception. Many people opt not to because they fear it will only exacerbate the issue.

The reality is, your skin needs to maintain a healthy level of moisture and the right moisturizer is imperative.

My sister liked this moisturizer because it didn’t feel greasy or heavy, didn’t leave her skin looking oily and perfectly hydrated her skin.

The Gel

Definitely not an item she would rub all over her skin, but great for spot treatment. This extra oomph of acne-fighting product really kicked those pimples ass.Zenmed review after shot

Honestly, my sister’s skin has never looked better. Her skin tone is even, her acne is all but gone and overall, her skin looks brighter and clearer. She’s definitely a fan of Zenmed now!

    I’m looking for an acne solution for my 16 year old son. Zenmed sounds great as far as safe ingredients and addressing different issues, like combination skin, oily skin, etc. Have you have any feed back on how Zenmed works on teenage skin?

  • Zenmed is great for teenage skin as well. They have a blog on their official site that I contribute to as well and may be helpful: http://blog.zenmed.info/healthy-skin-for-teens/
    Because teens are experiencing so many hormonal changes, they typically get oilier skin. I would recommend both their Acne Therapy Kit for best results!

  • I want too say dat my legs colour two tone and when I scratched or fell itchiness it’s leave the mark on it plzzz tell me the solution wat I can do dat he will the marks go and skin become in one tone plzzzz

  • Hey Chandi,

    This page could possibly help you out –> http://besskincare.com/diy-tips-and-tricks/skin-lightening-diy-tips-and-tricks

  • Is ZenMed available in South Africa? If so which store can I get it from?

  • Well you can order it online so you don’t have to worry about finding it in a store :) We have linked the official website for you in the post above the comment section :)

    I have really bad skin, it’s oily but sensitive an easily dries out from most spot treatments, my skin has taken a hammering from many products such as proactive and dermologica …nothing has worked and the marks and scars left behind are getting worse …I need a skin regime that will clear up my acne without over drying my face and really help clear up the marks an scars my acne has caused …please help

  • Have you looked into ZenMed Bethany? That could possibly help you out.

    My other suggestion would be to just go straight up natural. If I were you I would give the Oil Cleansing Method a try to get your skin condition under control and then deal with the scarring after you’ve dealt with the oiliness and sensitivity.

    Here’s a post that explains the OCM clearly and gives you the step-by-step as well :)


    Hope that helps!

  • I have spots on my cheek bone on both side and on my forehead I can feel them a lot can you recommend me something

  • Hey Priya,

    This could possibly work for you for discolouration and spots –> http://besskincare.com/meladerm-cream

    Hope that helps :)

  • How do I get a free sample too try this product

  • Hey Carla,

    To be honest, I don’t know if they dish out free samples, but you could always try emailing them and seeing what they say :-)

    Sorry I couldn’t be more help!

  • Hi!

    I’m just wondering what products would be the best fit for me. I am 20 and have mild acne ans scarring. The scars I have are mainly hyper pigmentation and indents. I have oily/combination skin with HUGE pores. Would you recommend an acne clearing kit or something a little less harsh that I can use with a scar treatment?

    Thankyou <3

  • Hey Carmen,

    If I were you I would consider testing out the Zenmed Skin Eraser Kit which should help clear up that hyper-pigmentation and indents :-)

    Also I would look into the Acne Therapy for Oily Skin Kit. You can get the oily skin kit here –> http://besskincare.com/go/zenmedoilykit or you could go for the combo skin kit here –> http://besskincare.com/go/zenmedcombinationkit if you think that would be a better fit for your skin.

  • Is this good for rosecae

  • All their acne products are gentle enough for rosacea, however they do have a complete line for treating rosacea itself. You can read about it here: http://besskincare.com/zenmed-for-rosacea

  • I suffer with periol dermatitis would this work or agrivate it?

  • If I were you I would ask them on Twitter as their social media manager is always on and is very helpful :)


  • sounds so good. where could i get a sample?

  • I’m not sure they give out samples. But here is the link where you can check out their page and buy a kit if you want –> http://besskincare.com/go/zenmed

  • Hello, I suffered from acne badly when I was younger but it’s calmed down quite a lot now, I have mild scaring and probably get a spot around once a month now, the problem is if I wear no make up my skin is red in areas on my chin and cheeks, what can you suggest?


  • I don’t have any posts on that topic yet…but we’ll start looking into remedies and put something together for you :-)

  • I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and let
    me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which not enough men and
    women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled
    across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

  • Thanks so much! We’re happy to help and entertain at the same time :)

  • I have been struggling from early teenage hood up til now that I am in my 20’s with acne, I have gone to so many different dermatologists and Dr’s but nothing has worked.

    I have read in to so many forums about Zenmed but am skeptical about using it. Could use some handy advice, tips and feedback about the product so I can be a hundred percent sure about purchasing.

    Kind regards

  • I would absolutely give Zenmed a try. Their products are gentle on your skin and most importantly, effective. Couple their Acne treatment kit with a few diet changes like these: http://besskincare.com/foods-that-cause-acne and you should really start to see results in a few short weeks!

  • Hi, i want to try this product.. I’m 35 years old and suffering from acne since i was 16 years old.. I have tried lots of skin care product but none of them were effective.. I don’t know what to do already.. I have continous breakouts and l’m on wits end.. If you could please send me samples, i will definitely give it a go.. Thank you and more power.

  • I’m not sure they send samples, but I can tell you from personal experience, Zenmed makes the best products out there. While I believe 35 years old is still incredibly young, common acne products are probably doing more harm than good. Zenmed’s ingredients focusing on treating acne in a more gentle manner, which is actually geared to aging skin. You should give them a try!

  • I will give it a try.. l just hope it is available here in the UK.. any idea where can i buy this product aside ordering on line? Thanks for the reply..

  • My teen age daughter has a lot of acne on her face. her face gets oily at some points. my daughter wants to try this product but we don’t know if this will work. can you give me advice as if my daughter were to use this product. I need the best advice as possible.

  • Honestly, I can’t rave enough about Zenmed. They have created an amazing product that works wonders. Their acne cleanser is gentle, but effective and helps prevent future breakouts. When you purchase the Complete Acne Kit you get an acne mask that can drastically reduce the amount of oil she is experiencing. They’ve even started including supplements which is neat. If I’m not mistaken, they’re also having a sale right now.
    Of all the skincare products I’ve tried, Zenmed is the one I’ve stuck with. Seriously, you should see my bathroom counter top. I’ve literally got it all! I don’t think you or your daughter will be disappointed by this product!

  • I struggled with adult acne, which is different than teenage acne. My skin is very sensitive and prone to dryness and the Citrus Clear Sensitive Wash & Moisturizer are the only products that dont irritate my skin. I also use the Citrus Clear Spot Treatment – but i use it all over my face – not just in specific areas. This works the best all over the face. Its the only thing that managed to control my adult acne, without irritating my sensitive skin. . .and my skin is sensitive!

  • Hi there, is ZenMed available in South Africa? I have mild adult acne and just recently had chicken pox, which left huge dark marks all over my face. can Zenmed help me with this and which line should I go for? thanks.

  • Unfortunately Zenmed only ships within North America. To get rid of dark marks I would try using Meladerm instead. It treats hyperpigmentation and should help lighten those dark spots. It also ships internationally.
