Product Review: Mederma Scar Gel

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Mederma
Name: : Scar Gel
Size: 20 g / 0.70 oz.
Price: $19.99 CAD

What it says on their website:
"Original Mederma Gel is serious skin care for scars. It's clinically proven to improve the softness, texture and overall appearance of scars."


To Purr About:
- no strong odour
- easy to apply
- absorbs quickly into skin
- did lighten my scars a bit

Claws Out:
- have to apply it 3 - 4 times a day
- a bit pricey
- takes longer to work on older scars
- may cause itchiness
- scar didn’t completely go away in my case

Final Comments:
I was pretty excited to try Mederma’s Scar get, because I have extremely sensitive and irritable skin, so I am often left with many unattractive scars due to scratching and dry skin. I chose a larger scar that I’ve had for a few months to test this product out on.

I found this scar gel nice in that it didn’t have any strong odour (had a subtle and pleasant smell of aloe) and absorbed in to my skin quickly.

Although I have had so-so results with this product, I have to be fair since Mederma does suggest that this product yields the best results on newer scars and also suggests applying 3 to 4 times a day, but I just couldn’t be consistent enough with my applications. At most I applied this product twice a day.

After using a whole tube of this product my scar is definitely lighter, but it’s hard to tell if that was due to the product or just time and being moisturized constantly. I did enjoy using this product as my scar did lighten, but it is a bit pricey. I might pick up this product again, but due to the price it’d have to be a pretty bad scar and one I was desperate to get rid of.

I wouldn't have time to apply 3-4 times a day, and it's hard when I have makeup on already. Was gonna buy this to try, but my scars aren't new, prob won't work. Thanks for the review

Is this product for the body or for the face? Yeah I would only be able to apply it 2x a day!

I think this product is for body and face - it doesn't really specify.

Hi Elaine,

It's doesn't specify, but on Mederma's website, they mention that people can use it on acne, plus they have a photo of a women showing improvement on her forehead scar, and then they also mention that it's good for stretch marks, so it's probably a safe bet to assume that you can use it pretty much anywhere on your face and body.

Mederma Skin Care For Scars did indeed smooth out my stretch marks, but the places that I used it made my skin darker! Now I have to use another product to lighten the dark spots. If you are a Black woman, like me, and prone to hyper-pigmentation, do not use this product!!!

Very good post. Mederma cream is best scar cream. It gets rid of acne scars problem within 3 months. You should have to apply 3 times in a day.

Is there a negative rating option ?? -1000000000000 rating from my end.

I read good feedback about this product and bought for a scar on face of my son (2 yr and 9 months). I applied as directed once a day. Next day he had a lot of small bumps around the area where it was applied and kept on growing in size and area. After couple of days his face turned red due to allergic reaction of this cream. I was very concerned and stopped applying this cream.
The bumps went away after few days.

I wouldn't apply this cream even on my scars...

Doesn't work, I consistently used it on my semi new back surgery scar, morning and night for 6 months straight. Doesn't work!! It is lighter, but I think it is because I use the microdermabrasion machine on my scar every week, not because of this. I won't buy it again, too expensive for something that don't work. I probably need to tattoo my scar to cover it. My scar looks like a 3 inch giant centipede and it is so gross. So frustrating when I devoted 6 months and end up wasting my time. I could have tried something else!! The 6 months is a important time for it to heel if I used some other product that actually work it would have heal better. Do not recommend.

I absolutely love this product. The product container and label are stylish and sturdy. This Gel has a slight smell that is soothing to me, I don't mind the fragrance at all and after using the product my face felt a lot smoother and looked more clear (complexion wise). The mask is easy to put on and remove... source - http://deadseaproductstore.com/
