As a dermatologist I have used and recommended a number of well- known product lines for the skin. After 35 years taking care of the skin, I have gained experience with just about every skin care product on the market. The BEST one by far is the one I have used exclusively for the last 15 years—EPIONCE.

So, what products are the BEST of the BEST? In my opinion they are. . . .

1. EPIONCE Lytic Gel Cleanser, for the normal to oily face, with or without acne.

2. EPIONCE Medical Barrier Cream, for everyone’s dry sensitive skin, especially for hands (cuticles and tips are the most important area to treat consistently). Ideal for eczema or atopic

3. EPIONCE Intensive Nourishing Cream, for the dry-prone or sensitive-prone, easily irritated face.


Trust is the key ingredient in a healing encounter—whether it’s with a doctor or a skin care product. This is the trust my patients have in me, and the trust I have in Epionce founder, Dr Carl Thornfeldt. We know that his products are filled with unique health restoring natural ingredients that make you feel healthy and look younger.


This is the best-selling of all the products consistently for 15 years. It is by far the best facial cleanser I have ever encountered for normal to oily facial skin types. This is the #1 Key to keeping the pores healthy and preventing acne blemishes. (See my Acne Blog, Oct. 5, 2015 for the best method to cleanse your face with this product. This method makes this cleanser more effective and more economical.)

AWARD WINNING PRODUCT #2 Medical Barrier Cream

This is the product that I encouraged Epionce founder, Dr Carl Thornfeldt, to develop about 14 years ago for dry skin exposed to the elements—frequent exposure to chemicals, hand washing, cold weather, etc. This is ideal for the hands and also for eczema and atopic dermatitis. These conditions all need stronger barrier function in their outer protective layer of the skin—to keep the bad guys OUT (yeast, viruses, staph, as well as toxic chemicals). Protection is the key to reducing and eliminating and preventing inflammation. The outer barrier layer of the skin is less than 1mm thick. That’s all that stands between you and the harsh environment we are all exposed to. Consistent use of Medical Barrier Cream helps keep that barrier layer intact, robust and healthy—not just the hands, but for any area that is stressed with dryness, itching or inflammation/redness and even breakdown of the skin.

AWARD WINNING PRODUCT #3 Intensive Nourishing Cream

This is literally the best facial moisture that I have ever found—by far! It is intended for people with dry sensitive facial skin—skin that does not tolerate most products, due to irritation. It is also very valuable for people with combination or normal skin during the cold weather, when everyone’s skin dries out significantly.

Does Dr. Smith Own Stock in Epionce?

No. Please see my Dec. 2015 Blog. Toward the end of that blog I explain my experience in more detail, and why I favor Epionce for your skin care.

What Convinces Me That Epionce Is Best

I have already mentioned Trust. This is essential for a healing experience. Another feature of this line is the dependency on Natural Active Ingredients (citrus, date, marsh mallow root, lavender, cucumber, raspberry, and a number of vitamins, etc). And what I really like is HOW ECONOMICAL these products are! Consider the low purchase price compared to other premium skin care lines. Consider the fact that a little goes a long way! Consider how generous the product sizes are. Finally, REMEMBER your Dr. Smith FREE SHIPPING CODE #20030213 when you order. This saves you money and helps the company identify you with Dr. Smith.

As always,

My Healing Best To You—Jesus Christ!
