Dr. Schrammek Blemish Balm Review #1

“An effective remedy against blemishes and liver spots!”

My today’s review is about the Dr. Schrammek Blemish Balm Honey cream against livers spots.

First I will tell you all about how I actually came upon this product, which effect it has and also how my skin reacted to it.

I’ve been searching for a blemish balm which doesn’t only cover the liver spots but also brightens the skin on a long-term basis and improves my complexion. One aspect of such a nourishing cream I didn’t want to have though: the shine and greasy film it usually leaves. This is because I already have a rather greasy combination skin.

So I’ve tried quite a few things with my friends like this Korean BB-Cream by Missha (*CLICK*), which in my opinion leaves you with a way too light complexion.


There are so many Blemish Balms which contain melanin inhibiting properties and brighten the respective skin parts. Most of them are sadly very aggressive and have substances in them, which can cause cancer.

Understandably I didn’t want something like that in my skin care routine set. So therefore I looked for some skin-friendly product which wouldn’t irritate my sensitive skin.

So you wonder why I chose to try the Dr. Schrammek Blemish Balm Honey? It’s easy – after a few failed tries with foreign beauty brands I was looking into the European beauty product range. I kept thinking how it is impossible that Europe doesn’t have any good blemish balms.

I didn’t know much about the brand Dr. Schrammek up until now. A friend of mine who is a beautician told me that this brand has been on the market for nearly 50 years. Like in most cases, many people only know about such a special manufacturer when they are familiar with the world of cosmetics. I cannot say that about myself though. 🙂

Composition and packaging

The Dr. Schrammek Blemish Balm cream is part of the “trendy” BB Creams which are known for their various skin care effects combined into one product – moisturizer, makeup, concealer, blemish balm and so on. The reason why they have all these effects is to help ease and speed up both – the makeup part of your routine and also the more general part of your skin care.

You will find the Dr. Schrammek Blemish Balm in three shades: Light, Classic and Honey, where Honey is the darkest shade. But if you consider it dark, you might be wrong there, which you will find out once you look at it closer or even apply it.

In the summer time it is really a great option for my slightly darker complexion – whereas in winter I would rather choose the middle option of the three offered blemish balm shades.

Microdermabrasion Review

Generally speaking the Christine Schrammek BB Cream adjusts to your skin tone quite well. It has this slightly gold shimmering effect (that is why you will find the word “Honey” in the name). And I also find that its mattifying effect is really good – that does give my rather greasy combination skin an advantage.

When it comes to the packaging, the Dr. Schrammek Blemish Balm looks rather plain and even a bit clinical which makes you think of a medical skin care product instead of a beauty cream. I do have to say though that it makes the product look more respectable and isn’t a negative aspect of it.

The Dr. Schrammek Blemish Balm is quite fluid and rich in its consistency, which also makes it easy to apply and spread. After you’ve worked it in, it blends smoothly into your skin and looks nearly invisible. And clearly that’s an advantage of BB Cream for me – they make the daily makeup routine easier.



My experiences with the Dr. Schrammek Blemish Balm

With the Dr. Schrammek Blemish Balm it is very easy to lay the foundation for the next steps. If you want to intensify the covering effect of this product, you can simply use foundation on it. Especially when it comes to letting the darker liver spots or redness “vanish”.

When it comes to the scent of the cream it is very light because the fragrances come last in the list of ingredients of this product. That is really good since too many fragrances can irritate your skin. This Blemish Balm’s scent is very soft and smells like organic cosmetics, which might be something some users have to get used to. In my opinion though there was nothing negative about that.

It is also important to note that the Dr. Schrammek Blemish Balm doesn’t contain any sun protection factor. That’s is why you should apply some SPF cream beforehand, so that your skin stays protected throughout the day with these two products combined and also is nourished. I use this regenerating cream with SPF30 in addition to the Dr. Schrammek BB Cream.

The Dr. Schrammek Blemish Balm also contains the ingredient liquorice root extract. It is a counter agent for an enzyme which is responsible for producing melanin in your skin. That’s why this product also is called a blemish balm because these liver spots or blemishes mostly are made out of melanin buildup. The less melanin is produced, the less liver spots you have. It doesn’t need a biology major to know that.



My Conclusion

When it comes to being a bit lazy and putting on only little makeup for the day, the Christine Schrammek BB Cream is my favourite product. It is simply made for exactly that. But also if you want to treat skin pigmentation or simple blemishes, this BB Cream is the ideal product for that, like I found out for myself.

Looking at my face after 4 months of treatment with this BB Cream, I can clearly see that the amount of liver spots has really gone down visibly. But I guess that’s also the reason because I’m paying attention to use or rather apply cream with a low SPF.

Even the redness and irritated skin parts have been reduced which I can attribute to this blemish balm’s anti-inflammatory properties.

So I do think I will buy the Dr. Schrammek Blemish Balm Honey again because a smooth complexion without any unwanted liver spots is definitely worth it for me.
