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.

DR Nourishing & Whitening Cream



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…

DR Brightening & 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.
