Swtiched to Contractubex: A scar story of a self-confessed Klutz

As they say, the first step to recovery is admission. But for some reason, no matter how much I admit being a klutz, I still don’t get recovered from it. I’m a certified klutz, there’s no use denying it. I guess it goes hand in hand with my being an action person. Because I tend to follow through what I think, I oftentimes get ahead of myself and there goes the accidents I most often have to deal with.

Take this above wound for example. Second quarter of last year, I tripped and hit my shin right inside our backyard. What are the odds! I tried this Dermatix gel for a whole month. It was working for a while, like it was lightening the scar a little. But it practically stopped its job of erasing and went back to becoming darker to my horrors! I gave it another month just to have that chance that it “might” work still. But nothing. Ugh! I know I had to do a follow up review on that. Since there are already readers asking how my scar looked like now.

The thing is I switched to Contractubex (I finally heeded to my sister’s recommendation) even before I emptied the Dermatix tube. Apparently, my sister has been using Contractubex for years! Plus it was around three hundred bucks cheaper! Meaning, it’s good for my wallet. 🙂 I actually had my doubts since it was cheaper. You know how we consumers tend to equate expensive to effective. It is not always the case, at least for this particular product.

Dermatix, I used from July until September last year. If you will check out my Dermatix post, the scar did not improve from that last photo. Then I switched to Contractubex from then until present. Above is the photo of my present scar. I didn’t use flash when I took this photo to be as precise as possible. The only thing I don’t like about Contractubex is its aluminum tube. Dermatix has an easy squeeze tube. But then again, if that was what made it expensive yet not as effective, I’ll choose Contractubex all over again for my future other scars. I since swear by Contractubex. Imagine if I used Contractubex from the day my wound dried up, I’m sure my shin would hardly have a trace of boo-boo by now. Oh well, that’s one lesson learned by this self-confessed klutz.

Contractubex, P534 for 10g gel and P943 for 20g gel

Contractubex has three complementary active ingredients: (1) Extractum cepae, which is essentially a special onion extract. It has anti-inflammatory, bactericidal properties and prevents the formation of excessive scar tissue. (2) Heparin, softens the tissue structure, has anti-inflammatory, anti-swelling properties and prevents the formation of excessive scar tissue. And (3) Allantoin, which promotes wound healing, hydrates the skin and has a soothing effect which helps relieve the itching often associated with scar formation.

My scar might not have been as fresh as I should have started applying Contractubex on it. But I am satisfied because this delivered better results as opposed to the former gel I used for my scar. I will continue using this gel until the scar goes away completely. I totally vouch for this scar erasing product. Whether you have two left feet like I might have because of all the tripping I’ve been doing all these years or you have some Dutch Master cigars burn scars or maybe marks from your crazy teenage years, Contractubex is a real must try. 🙂

 And even before this particular scar is erased altogether, I once again tripped in the city of Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam during our family trip a few months back. Aside from having a reliable scar eraser like Contractubex handy, I learned that I also need to always have with me a handy antiseptic. 🙂

    Sis okay rin kaya to sa acne scars?

  3. sigrid @ dinsfashion

    Oh wow! This is great because you are an actual user and not just a celebrity endorser. It is good to know that it works even if the scar has been there a while, just like yours, when you used a different product first. 😀

    Good thing it’s cheaper and more effective. I tried a smaple once but only got to apply it on a first degree burn so I wasn’t that convinced.

    WOW! Contractubex really does work!

    This product can be a “lifesaver” for those who have problems with scars. It is a good thing that it is now available here.

  8. Tetcha Figuerres

    If this product is really effective, then I need one tube of Contractubex, too. I have scars from a severe allergic reaction to a drug that I got afflicted with more than 10 years ago.
