Hello Beauties! Happy Tuesday!
This post is kind of long overdue because I received the products since July. I meant to do a First Impression, but never got to do it. So this post is going to be a full review.
Just a little disclaimer: I was contacted by Derma MD Canada’s distributor and was sent these products a PR samples for the purpose of reviewing them.
Now that this is out of the way, lets talk a little bit about the company. Prior to being contacted, I was not aware neither did I hear of the company; so I was both nervous and excited to try out their products. Here are a few facts about Derma MD:
- Derma MD was founded in 2001
- Sheila Malmanis is the president and founder of the Derma MD. She is a licensed aesthetician and a former L.P.N (R.P.N for us Canadians)
- Derma MD researches, develops and provides products that will show results using the most advanced ingredients at the higher percentage and most concentrated levels allowed.
- The company has a wide selection of products such as cleansers, exfoliants, toners, serums, treatments, moisturizers, eye creams, masks, acne products, and lip plumps.
About the products:
The representative for the Derma MD Canada was kind enough to send me two of the products to try. On a side note, I really love how the products were packaged with a personalised Thank You note and the fact that they were sent a week after I was contacted.
So the first product is the Pink Silk Face Firming SerumThis serum claims to increase hydration, reduce redness and improve texture. the key ingredients are red algae, vitamin C, caviar extract, copper tripeptide-1, and retinyl palmitate. It is suitable for all skin types. It contains 1 fl oz/ 30 ml and retails for $152.90CAD.
The pros: it feels like a very good silicon based primer, it is not greasy, it is not heavy (feels like I have nothing on my skin). It makes my skin feel soft and hydrated, a little bit goes a long way.
The cons: I had a minor break out, but that is how my skin reacts to new products.
The second product is the Glamour Lip Plump – Candy Pink
The lip plump claims to hydrate, nourish, exfoliate, build collagen, protect and make the lips look fuller. The key ingredients are hyaluronic acid micro spheres, tri-peptide-1, retinyl palmitate, benzyl nicotinate, camphor, tocopheryl acetate(vitamin E). It contains 8ml and retails for $29.70CAD.
The pros: it is very hydrating and soothing. I also love the tingling sensation and the glossy look when paired with lipsticks.
The cons: I don’t think it makes my lips look fuller. I’m not sure if it is because I already have full lips, but I don’t really see a difference as of yet.
In conclusion, so far I love both products especially the face serum. Although I have been using it for about two months now, I notice that my skin feels more hydrated and firm. I do intend to keep on using it and I do recommend it. I will also do an update post to let you guys know if I still like the products.
