Hello my dear lovelies. As some of you might remember, I have posted a few things about Dermasil before. I personally love their products and considering the price tag, it is definitely a win in my book, especially for such a great product.
But about a year or so ago, Dermasil was nice enough to send me the Oil Free Daily Retinol Facial Cream and the Oil Free Night Moisturizer so I could try it out. And yes, it has taken this long for me to make up my mind about it. What I wanted to do was spend about 2 weeks just doing my normal cleansing routine, then I would use the product for as long as it took to finish it off and then go back to my regular routine. I wanted to see how much of a difference there was.
Now, I need to explain something. While my skin isn’t perfect (no ones is!), it is also in pretty good shape. I rarely get acne (only if I don’t wash my face after wearing some sort of makeupy thingie!) and only have 2 chicken pox scars on my nose. To be honest, I am not sure if I am the best one to give you a proper review on this, but in the end, there are things that I noticed.
First off let me start off by talking about the Oil Free Daily Retinol Facial Cream. The jar it comes in is cute and dainty, made of a harder plastic that seems to be shatter proof. (We all know how much of a klutz I am!) and the top has a golden lid.
When you open the lid, you are then hit with one of the most beautiful scents I have ever taken within my nose holes. It is like a tea rose scent and ooooh it is nice. It brings back memories of me at my grandmothers house. It makes me feel serene and relaxed.
The cream inside is thick and feels silky to the touch, and when I tested it on my hand, I was blown away by the feel that it left behind. It soaks into the skin slowly, but easily leaving behind the feel of rose petals.
So the first day I used it, I could notice a difference in my skin that felt like my facial cover was more youthful and energized. It just felt good. And after using it for a while, I noticed that I radiated a glow that was just unique and yummy. If that makes sense at all.
Now, for the Oil Free Night Moisturizer. It comes in the same kind of container that the Daily Cream does with the only exception being the lid. It is a light periwinkle sort of blue. The scent is a mixture between baby powder and unicorn wishes. It is peaceful and relaxing, creating a sort of bubble around your noggin that eases tension.
The cream is also the same texture and feel of the Daily cream, so as to not repeat myself, just read that part again.
The first night I used it, I truly feel that I drifted off into sleep a lot quicker and easier. I am not sure if they meant for that to happen but it did. And the next morning, or in my case, the next evening, when I woke up, my face felt wonderful. My normal morning/evening “don’t talk to me or I’ll shank you” eyes were more refreshed and less tired looking. I mean, I still had the “don’t talk to me or I’ll shank you” eyes mind you, but they were just more refreshed. *coughs*
After using it for the time that I had it, I noticed that my face felt so much different in the “mornings.”
As for the aftermath. I can tell a difference. A BIG difference. My face feels rougher, more blah. I do not have that baby bottom feel that I thought I had before. Now that I think about it, I do not even think my skin was soft to begin with. I can tell a noticeable difference between using it and not using it.
So to sum this all up. The packaging is great, the creams are just beautiful smelling and feel terrific on your skin. You will notice a difference within moments of putting it on, but even more as time goes on. So yes, my friends, I do suggest this product to everyone. The price is not high for it either. For the amount of money you spend for more expensive treatments, I feel that this route is the best way to go.
Dermasil, if you are seeing this. Thank you. What you all do for us is just amazing.
