Dermatica Azelaic Acid 20% Cream Review

Dermatica Azelaic Acid 20% Cream

*AD info - this post contains a PR product.


Dermatica are an online dermatology service, where you can gain access to prescription skincare following a consultation. I was previously prescribed an acne fighting serum which contained Tretinoin (prescription strength Vitamin A) and Azelaic Acid. A new tube is posted out to you each month and you have regular online check-ins with a dermatologist to ensure that your prescription is still correct for you. It's a great service and at £19.99 a month, it's a lot cheaper than paying to see a dermatologist privately. 

Dermatica have now brought out their first "over the counter" product - Azelaic Acid 20% Cream. I've been using this for about 6 weeks now so it's time to share my thoughts! Azelaic Acid is fantastic for acne sufferers as it helps reduce inflammation as well as fading any pigmentation that has been left behind by spots. This cream also contains Ceramides and Vitamin E to soothe and nourish skin. 

I've been using this in my PM routine, after cleansing and toning. One pump of the cream is more than enough to cover my face. It's a beautiful texture - it's lightweight, spreads easily and absorbs instantly. Azelaic Acid can often be difficult to formulate elegantly - it can often be gritty or hard to spread. Dermatica have absolutely nailed the texture of this - it's a pleasure to use and works well with the other products in my routine. The cream feels really nourishing without being greasy.

Now although 20% is a high percentage for Azelaic Acid, I've not had any issues with sensitivity or over-exfoliation. I went straight to using this most 4-5 nights a week. Once I realised my skin was tolerating the cream well, I reintroduced my Vitamin A serum (Medik8 Crystal Retinal 10) to my routine.

Since using this cream, I've seen a reduction in the amount of spots that I was getting. Plus it's got rid of some stubborn milia type spots. My skin tone is more even and bright. The cream has also helped fade my acne pigmentation. All in all, I've been really impressed with it!

Dermatica Azelaic Acid 20% Cream is available HERE for £19.99.
