I have been on a healthy glowing skin journey for a while now and I know it goes beyond the products used…
Ones lifestyle i.e things you eat and drink are major factors too, but that’s a post for another day.
Cookieskin & Thebloggersadvocate gifted me with two products.
I got the dermal repair anti aging serum & the dermal repair nourishing whitening cream.
This is a big deal because their products don’t come cheap.
Having used them both for a week plus, I think its safe for me to share my thoughts.
Their products are said to be made with superior active & natural ingredients and guarantee fresh, flawless, youthful skin.
The DR (dermal repair) nourishing & whitening cream promises to
- Brighten the skin, keeps it clear and glowing.
- Clear blemishes & age spots. Controls oil.
- Brightens, Firms, treats and prevents acne.
- If used from day 1, it helps prevent discoloration during pregnancy.
- prevents hyper pigmentation.
The ingredients found in the DR (dermal repair) nourishing & whitening cream are:
Kojic Dipalmitate, Licorice, PT40, Vitamin E Acetate, Vitamin B3, Jojoba oil and some other stuff.
Packaging : It comes in a not so basic cute white box with the benefits, directions & ingredients printed on it.
Product itself comes in a 50ml tube.
Usage: Everyday 2x a day on dark patches and spots or apply all over face and neck 2x a day.
My usage: Being lazy about my skin care routine, I use this once a day.
My verdict: It’s got a mild fragrance that doesn’t linger and the texture is a consistent soft paste (I hope this makes sense).
I started noticing a slight difference around my eyes (I have dark under eyes) by day 5.
The skin there has become a little lighter and I’m glad because I am tired of dealing with dark under eyes & hyperpigmentation.
This gets an 8/10 for me. The remaining two go to size hehe (who doesn’t want more of the good stuff?)
Anti Aging Serum…
The DR brightening & Anti aging serum promises to
- Exfoliate and reveal clearer brighter skin.
- Firms & reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Hydrates & regulates oil production
- Minimizes pores
- Smoothen skin making it look younger.
Ingredients found in the serum are:
Water, Propylene glycol, polysorbate 20, Lactic acid, potassium hydroxide, Glycolic acid and some other good stuff.
Packaging: The serum like the cream, comes in a not so basic white box.
The product itself comes in a very cute 30ml bottle (not glass).
Usage: Apply on face ans neck 3-4 times a week only at night. Use alone or top up with the nourishing cream after 10mins.
My usage: I have used this just three times and I didn’t top up with the nourishing cream.
Little wonder we cry wolf when we don’t follow instructions to the letter.
My Verdict: It has got a mild fragrance that lingers just a bit. I noticed it has a little sting to it (or maybe its just me).
Texture is a gel like paste (is it weird I like it that way).
I would have preferred if it came with a pump to help regulate the quantity that comes out. 7/10.
Final verdict: I have noticed a difference in my skin. My dark spots are getting lighter, face feels smoother and fresher.
Hopefully my battle with hyper pigmentation will come to an end soon.
The only thing I worry about is the price. These products are certainly not for me (at the moment) .
The nourishing cream goes for $38 and the serum $40 but I’d say this, if I’m thoroughly satisfied, I am willing to create a budget to include their products.
