Today I’m reviewing a few products that were sent to me for review from Derma MD Canada (the Canadian distributor for Derma MD Skincare).
Lip plumpers are still one of the hottest products out there to complete a skincare program. Most of us do not want LIP augmentation, but we definitely want soft, full, supple lips. As we mature, we lose volume (collagen) in our lips, much like our face, but our Derma MD Canada Glamour LIP plumper will help you get that fullness back. Our proprietary formulation contains hyaluronic acid micro-spheres, niacin, antioxidants and peptides. Your lips will LOVE how they look and feel. Non-sticky or burning like most plumpers in the marketplace.
These lip plumper glosses are available in six different shades – Baby Doll Pink, Candy Pink, Coral Vixen, Golden Goddess, Peach Bellini, and Vixen Red. I received “Golden Goddess” – in the tube it looks full on gold metallic. Thankfully it does not apply like that!
Athough the Glamour Lip Plumper applies like a gloss, it doesn’t have that goopy, sticky feeling that I hate. Instead it feels super moisturizing. It does tingle a little when first applied, but not in that worrisome “oh no, my lips are melting off” kind of feeling. I really didn’t think that I would like this, but I’ve been using it daily!
Below are photos taken to try to illustrate the plumping effect on my lips. The first photo is immediately after applying, and the second is after 10 minutes. I tried to keep the same expression in both shots.
The Glamour Lip Plumper smells kind of like a cross between butterscotch pudding and mint – that might be a weird combination, but there is something that I like about the scent.
Ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid Micro-Spheres, Tri-Peptide 1, Retinyl Palmitate, Benzyl Nicotinate (Niacin), Camphor, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E).
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. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive.
This thick yellow gel cleanser smells like pineapple! (And thankfully not like papaya – I have an aversion to the scent). It is super gentle on the skin. It exfoliates without abrading the skin which is perfect for sensitive skin like mine!
Ingredients: Water (aqua), sodium lauryl sarcosinate, lauramidoropyl betaine, decy glucoside, glycerin, xanthan gum, pineapple (ananas sativus) extract, papain, chamomile (chamomile recutita ) extract, grapefruit (citrus grandis) oil, panthenol, phenocarboxymethyl cellulose, grape seed extract, vitamin E acetate,grapefruit, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexyglycerin, butylene glycol, citric acid, potassium sorbate, potassium hydroxide.
This anti-inflammatory, antioxidant formula combines caviar and AstaXanthin, one of the world’s most powerful antioxidants! It works to slow down the aging process and rejuvenate the skin giving it a more youthful and vibrant appearance. Reduces erythema (redness) and calms the skin, including rosacea skin types. This product makes a beautiful primer for makeup, smoothing the skin and creating the perfect canvas for foundation.
This serum can also be used as a makeup primer. When I first did a patch test on my arm – I immediately thought that it felt more like a primer than a serum to me. The dimethicone helps to smooth out the skin before foundation. I think that I will get more use of this once the weather gets colder, and my skin starts to get a little dry. It has a very mild medicinal type scent, not perfumey or overpowering at all. The serum plays well with concealer, liquid and powder foundation, as well as with BB/CC creams, without any creasing, always a good thing!
