Review: Derma MD Skincare and GIVEAWAY*

Hi Ladies!
Today I am going to share with you a line of skincare products by Derma MD. Derma MD was founded in 2001 by Sheila Malmanis. She is a licensed aesthetician and former L.P.N.  who currently owns has her own skincare salon as well. Sheila works with chemists to create high quality products that produce results.

Let's move on to the products:

Vitamin C Milk Collagen Booster $129.00

Here is what is said about this product:
"A high level concentration of multiple antioxidants and vitamin C, work synergistically to improve elasticity,promote new collagen and protect skin from sun damaging rays. Antioxidants, pycnogeol, resveratrol, and ascorbyl palmitate work synergistically to reduce inflammation, lighten appearance of hyperpigmentation, improve appearance of broken capillaries, inhibit collagen degredation,and increase elastin.  Skin is firmer, more luminous and younger looking."
  • Slow down collagen breakdown
  • Improve skin elasticity
  • Increase moisture retention
  • Reduce lines/wrinkles and deep furrows
  • Protect
This vitamin c serum smells like citrus and is so refreshing when I apply it in the morning. It is light, not sticky or greasy, and absorbs right into my skin. I can't really say much about its claims of increasing the elasticity my skin and make me look younger because I don't suffer from saggy skin or wrinkles. I do like that it has a bunch of vitamins and antioxidants to protect and improve my skin in general. I do think my face has looks a bit more luminous but at the same time I have never had BAD skin.

Here is what is said about this product:"Gel based formulation with anti-aging ingredients to help shrink the pore size, increase hydration and improve texture of skin, leaving skin more vibrant, healthier glow & improves clarity ."
  • Reduces appearance of large pores 
  • Improves skin texture
  • Hydrates

This product is supposed to be used nightly before bed. It is another light serum that is clear and not sticky or greasy. It has no scent to and absorbs quickly into the skin. I tend to have enlarged pores around my nose and on my forehead. I do think that they have shrunk a bit while using this product. 

D Zip Zapper $18.95
Here is what is said about this product:
"Apply this roller ball onto area of irritation, and see the blemishes start to diminish almost instantly."
  • Reduces bacteria count
  • Clears up blemished/problematic skin
  • Hydrates
  • Non-irritating, non-drying

When I first used this on a couple breaks outs, I didn't think it worked as quickly as I hoped. However, I started getting two breakouts around my nose and once I applied this product for a couple days, the pimples never popped up. They went away. I think that this product is better for pimples that aren't

At-Home Microderm Face Exfoliant $36.95

Here is what is said about this product:
"More than just an ordinary exfoliant! Corundum crystals, same as found in microdermabrasion equipment combined with anti-aging ingredients work synergistically to exfoliate, hydrate, soften and smooth the skin.  The combination of  antioxidants, soy & olive oil work together increasing moisture retention and protect skin from environmental stressors. No irritation and or down-time. Used 3-4 times weekly, skin feels smoother, silky and has a more vibrant appearance. Excellent for heels and elbows to soften callouses & help repair broken fissures."
  • Fights free radicals
  • Gently exfoliates dead skin cells
  • Reduce roughness of callouses and broken fissures
  • Improved texture
  • Improves appearance of dark spots
I love this microderm scrub! I have used other scrubs similar to this. The micro crystals really do a great job at exfoliating your skin. My face feels super soft and clean after using this scrub. It doesn't have a particular scent. The exfoliant can be abrasive if you put a lot of pressure when scrubbing. I like using it this way because I feel like it gets your face cleaner and softer. For people that don't like abrasive exfoliants,you can apply with less pressure when scrubbing your face.

Avocado and Pumpkin Revitalizing Masque $58.95
 Here is what is said about this product:
"Allow your face to exfoliate dead skin cells NATURALLY with gentle enzymes of pumpkin.  Unlike strong acids, the combination of pumpkin with avocado, leaves skin looking younger, and hydrated.   Now you can have that professional mask right in your own home, without the expense."
  • Exfoliates
  • Reduces appearance of fine lines  
  • Increases moisture retention
  • Reduces appearance of redness
  • Fights free radicals
This mask smells amazing. I don't know if it smells like pumpkin or avocado per say but it smells really good. It doesn't go on as thick as my other masks and takes longer to dry however, my skin does feel nice and clean after using it.

Here is what is said about this product:
"The mild enzymes of pineapple and papaya combined with chamomile and additional plant extracts, will gently digest dead skin cells leaving it soft, hydrated and feeling fresh. Enzymes are non-abrasive to the skin."
  • Digest skin cells leaving skin soft & smooth
  • Removes makeup
  • Soothing & calming
  • Moisturizing-non drying
  • Reduces razor bumps when shaving
This gel cleanser smells exactly like pineapples. It foams up a little on your face once you add a little water. Its refreshing and doesn't feel like its still on your skin after washing it off. I do feel that my skin looks and feels soft and smooth after using this cleanser.

Peptide Eye $62.95

Here is what is said about this product:
"A formulation that provides results! Combined with Vitamin K and  special anti-aging peptides such as Hyloxyl™ and Eyeliss™ that target puffiness and dark circles. Acetyl hexapeptide-8 is found to relax facial contractions which help to lessens appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additional ingredients hydrate and leave a more younger smoother contour to eye area. Used twice daily, eyes look less puffy, younger and more vibrant."
Proven Clinical studies (56 days)
52% less puffiness
62% improvement in smoothing of eye contour
19% lightening of dark circles
This eye cream is light and has a creamy gel-like consistency. It smells almost like cupcakes or vanilla which is really delightful! I don't find it to be greasy and it absorbs into my skin after a minute or so. I don't have puffiness or wrinkles under my eyes but I do have dark circles. I have noticed a little lightening but it obviously it doesn't work overnight. Overall, I think that this is a great eye cream.

Glamur Lip Plumper in Baby Doll and Peach Bellini $25.95
Here is what is said about this product:
"Have the full, plump & voluptuous lips without costly injections. No gimmics, just RESULTS!  Glamur LIP plump works to increase hydration causing a plumping of the lips instantly with the ingredients niacin and spheres of hyaluronic acid...Glamur continues to increase collagen levels with peptide and retinyl palmitate.  Used twice daily your lips will increase lip size within 30-45 days, and have an on-going effect.  Additional anti-aging ingredients will provide a Lip care treatment that will exfoliate, reduce lip lines and condition as they protect...Your LIPS cannot be without Glamur!   Lips will feel soft, supple and sexy all day long!  SAFE & EFFECTIVE! "
  • Increase blood flow-lips appear fuller instantly
  • Reduces lip lines
  • Increases volume of lips
  • Exfoliates
  • Conditions and soothes dry flaky lips
  • Increases moisture retention-keeping lips moist
I am not a fan of lip plumpers because of the tingling sensation. That being said, these lip plumpers show results in less than a minute. The colors don't really have a color and are on the sheer side.  I would suggest using as a lipstick topper if you want more color payoff. They are not sticky and have a slight sweet scent. I didn't use these consistently so I can't comment about the long term results. But like I said, short term, it definitely makes your lips look plumper.

Here are before and after pics of my lips with and without the lip plumper:

As you can tell, my top lip is significantly plumper. The bottom one is a little plumper.

Overall, I really enjoyed trying out all of these products. I think Derma MD is a great skincare line with some really great products. They smell delicious and are high quality skincare products. My favorite items are the At Home MicroDerm Face Exfoliant, Pumpkin and Avocado Revitalizing Mask, and Peptide Eye Cream.
