Looking more like a sunscreen with some herbal extracts Dermalex Repair has made a gentle entrance to the rosacea market in the UK.
Described as a `treatment cream for Rosacea and Couperose’ Dermalex seems to be a mild and reasonably priced skincare cream.
The product publicity includes the following grand sounding claims’
The patented Tri-solve® technology creates a protective film on the skin helping to restore a thick and hydrated epidermis. Dermalex Rosacea also protects the skin through specific UV filters neutralising an important trigger in the appearance of rosacea symptoms. In addition, the cream contains well-known soothing and calming ingredients. Dermalex Rosacea is a dermatologically tested product for the treatment of rosacea skin symptoms such as redness, flushing, visible spider veins, tightened and hardened skin and dryness.
Who are Dermalex?
We are told that in 2013 the makers of Dermalex, Omega Pharma were to invest 1 million pounds to launch the Dermalex brand. Omega Pharma promote Dermalex as their steroid free range of treatments that will rehydrate, protect and reduce the inflammation of eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.
So Does Dermalex Work ?
Well the story that an easily available (ok if you are in the UK) and affordable treatment will
- restore the natural skin barrier
- provide daily protection against UVA and UVB rays
- reduce recurrence of symptoms
- and calm, hydrate and soften the skin.
all sounds good, but what about the results? Well you would have to say that jury is still out as there doesn’t appear to be enough user reviews available as yet.
I would expect any real benefit from Dermalex Repair to be on the mild side and only after many weeks of use.
Still, if that is enough of a benefit to continue to use it then Dermalex may be worth adding to your regime. Please let us know how you get on.
In Australia Dermalex Repair is only promoted as an eczema treatment.
Dermalex User Reviews
This is is was Dermalex themselves say – “Results vary according to skin type. Within 30 minutes the skin is 18% more hyrdrated and redness reduced by 44 %. They also say spider veins will be reduced by 21 % in four weeks and 34% in eight weeks.”
They also say it could help reduce flare ups and the damage they cause. I think this is probably true and would recommend it to anyone who is newly diagnosed.
So I am at the end of week one. Dermalex definitley suits my skin as a moisturiser. The redness was not reduced in minutes but has certainly reduced to the point where I catch myself in the mirror and think I look quite pale It’s no magic cure but for redness reduction alone I would certainly by it again. I am looking forward to seeing how things progress and if it does reduce my spider veins.
This is the only product on the market that has worked for me , after 5 year of suffering severe rosacea I a nearly clear ,don’t bother with your doctors antibiotics and prescriptions they don’t work Well done Dermalex ,expensive but worth every penny
Within 2 days this cream transformed the skin around my eyes and cheeks from being ultra sensitive to totally normal! I could hardly bear to touch most of my face as my hands/fingers felt like sandpaper against my skin and I couldn’t bear to wear my spectacles which i need for reading and the computer.
I now feel that I’ve got my life back and that happened after only 2 days. After conservative treatment from my GP with no improvement I was sceptical about this cream but willing to try anything and now so glad I did. I know it’s not a cure but alleviation of the symptoms is wonderful.

I’ve suffered from Rosacea for over 25 years and during that time have tried many things from prescription drugs and gels to over the counter creams and herbal remedies.
Over the 25 years it has these have had varying degrees of success from complete abating to making no difference whatsoever.
I was recommended to try Dermalex by a friend and was slightly skeptical, it’s by no means a miracle cream but I do feel it has made a difference in calming some of the worst areas.
The cream itself is green in hue and I was worrying that it was nothing more than a masking cream. Due to the colour it did take some “rubbing in” which I was worried about as the skin on my forehead is particularly fragile.
I do think the Dermalex has helped strengthen the skin in this area and for that alone I will continue to use it.
