Derma MD Skincare, New for 2016

Derma MD Skincare

If you have been following my blog for a couple years, you may remember my experimenting with Derma MD skincare.  The brand sent me a ton of products to review, and I had several Derma MD giveaways throughout 2014.  I am a fan of the brand, and the CoQ 10 moisturizer is still one of my favorites.  So, when the good people at Derma MD approached me to review some of their new skincare products, I jumped at the chance.  You can read all about my previous experience with Derma MD and see my review of six products by following the link.  This time around, I’ll be reviewing the new 10% S.L.A.C. Exfoliating Peel Pads and the new Sensitive Pearl Cleanser.  My experience with these products is a little mixed, so let’s start with the Peel Pads.

10% S.L.A.C. Exfoliating Peel Pads

10% S.L.A.C. Exfoliating Peel Pads

The new 10% S.L.A.C. Exfoliating Peel Pads are easy to use, concentrated exfoliating pads that are designed to slough off dead skin cells while working some anti-aging magic.  Formulated with both Salicylic Acid & Lactic Acid, with the addition of both Vitamins A and C, it gently exfoliates without irritation, and is supposed to “brighten,  firm, improve texture, increase collagen synthesis, smooth and protect.” Derma MD claims that it is excellent for all skin types.  I am a fan of salicylic acid exfoliators.  They tend to work pretty well for me.  I actually really like what this product does for my skin, but I can’t use it.  Unfortunately, there is a very strong rosy perfume smell that I can not handle.  It is so strong, and it clings to the skin and my clothes.  I tried using the Peel Pads during the day, but I had to wash my face because I couldn’t stand the smell.  I can use the Peel Pads at night before bed, but I can still smell the powdery rose scent on my bedding and night clothes when I wake up in the morning.  Granted, I am extremely sensitive to scent, especially rose.  It’s possible that someone else might be able to handle the scent better than I can, and maybe even like it.  For me though, the smell ruins an otherwise good product.

Sensitive Pearl Cleanser

Sensitive Pearl Cleanser

My experience with the Derma MD Sensitive Pearl Cleanser was completely different from the Peel Pads.  I love the Sensitive Pearl Cleanser.  This moisturizing cleanser has a silky pearly cream base that feels lovely on the skin.  It fights premature aging with multiple antioxidants, stimulates collagen synthesis and has anti-inflammatory properties.  This cleanser is excellent for dry or sensitive skin.  It feels like you are washing your face with lotion, but it still feels completely cleansed when you are done.  It doesn’t dry my skin out in the slightest and it doesn’t give me that tight, squeaky feeling after I use it.  I would recommend this cleanser to anyone.  It’s great.

For more details on these products, or any of the ones that I previously reviewed, check out Derma MD’s website.  I’ve been checking their Facebook page, and have noticed several promotional sale events and special offers ranging from free gifts with purchase, opportunities to win gift cards, and 20%-50% off discounts.  They also offer a discount just for signing up for their mailing list.  You can find some Derma MD products available on sites like Hautelook, Groupon, and Zulily, which are all great ways to save up to almost 75%.

Derma MD is featured on Rue La La Today.  Just follow this link to see the event.  Rue La La is a lot like Hautelook, in that they have special sale events that offer designer brands at seriously discounted prices.  Some highlights this time around: the Pink Silk Face Firming Serum that I reviewed here is being offered in a 2-pack for only $49.90, and the S-Cargot Lifting Serum 2-pack is also only $49.90.  These serums regularly retail for $138.95 and $149.95 respectively.  Their Uplifting Night Cream is in a Duo Kit for $39.99.  There are some really amazing deals, so be sure to check them out at ruelala.com.

I have been trying the Derma MD Lifting & Tightening Eye Serum for the last six or seven weeks, and so today I want to share my thoughts with you.  If you have been following along for the last few months, you should be familiar with Derma MD by now.  If you are new, however, check out this review of my skincare regimen to see what other products Derma MD has to offer and what I thought of them.  My awesome contact at Derma MD, Mindy, sent me this nifty little roller ball for review.  The Lifting & Tightening Eye Serum is new to the Derma MD lineup, and I was all too happy to give it a try.

Here is what Derma MD has to say about the product: “Lightweight gel base formulated to lift-tighten-revitalize the appearance of the eye area.  Formulated with 10% Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, a non-toxic ingredient that is claimed to reduce lines by approximately 30% when used daily.  This exceptional proprietary formulation combines the properties of toning and lessens contractions of facial movement, thus works to lessen appearance of fine lines, wrinkles & deep furrows found around eye area and between eyebrows.  This unique peptide, combined with peptide Matrixyl 3000, will achieve long-term structuring of collagen to give eye area a more rejuvenated and younger looking appearance.

So, first off, I was intrigued by and admittedly a little dubious of the roller ball applicator.  All of the eye serums that I have used on the past have been in a pump, and I wasn’t sure how well the little roller ball would work.  It was a needless worry, though, because the roller ball works just fine for me.  As long as I take my time, I get a solid, even application of the product.  It’s only when I try to slap it on super quickly that the ball can skip a tiny bit, but if I go for a deliberate application, I have no issues.  This is an 8ml roller ball, and it will last you a good long while.  I thought that I might go through it quickly, but I have been using my serum for almost two months and I still have a good amount left.  I won’t need another one for some time.

As far as the serum itself, I think it works really well.  I apply it around my eyes after cleansing and let it dry while I apply the rest of my skincare routine.  My last step is to top the serum off with my Derma MD Peptide Eye Creme.  I have noticed a definite improvement in the fine lines around my eyes.  The skin looks a little tighter as well.  I am not saying that the Lifting & Tightening Eye Serum replaces injections and fillers or anything- no skincare product can- but there has been definite visible improvement.  The true test came when I asked my husband and sister if they noticed any difference and both of them said that I did look like I have less lines than I used to.  I really think that the Derma MD Lifting & Tightening Eye Serum Roller Ball works as promised.  You can also apply the serum elsewhere on your face to help with frown lines or any other wrinkles that you may be concerned with.

This is the original, first run, roller ball.  Mindy mentioned that they are doing a slight re-design to make the roller balls even better.  The Derma MD Lifting & Tightening Eye Serum Roller Ball retails for $64.95 at dermamdskincare.com.  I know that is a bit steep for a budget beauty blog, but considering how long the roller ball lasts, it’s not as bad as it may originally seem.  Derma MD has offered a 50% off promo code for my readers, bringing the price down to a much more manageable $32.50.  Enter code beautybudget at check out to receive the discount.  I absolutely think the Derma MD Lifting & Tightening Eye Serum is worth a try.  It has been a great addition to my skincare regimen, and I plan to keep using it.
