I take pretty good care of my skin and I have been doing so for many years. When we are young we don’t even realize the damage that can happen to it and many girls don’t take very good care of theirs because of it. My mom still has a beautiful complexion at 89 years old, and she was very careful with her skin regimen and harped on me to do the same. I am thankful that she did. Of course I’m always looking for a miracle cure, without chemical injections or surgery, so I jumped at the chance to review Vitaphenol Daily Defense Cream.
I’ve been using it a almost two months now and haven’t used other moisturizers so that I could get a good idea of how well it works. Made with a variety of herbal and natural ingredients, I used one pump on my forehead and eyes, a second pump around my mouth and on my neck, and a third on my decollete. It is non-greasy and felt great on my skin, soaking in quickly and leaving my skin feeling refreshed, and although it is very lightly scented, I didn’t really even notice it had one. I like knowing that a product I’m using is not full of chemicals and is made in the USA.
The Daily Defense Cream that I used is a specially formulated medically compounded blend of Super-Antioxidants (Mangosteen – a rich source of xanthones, Pomegranate – to help give strength and support to skin, and Green and White Tea which reduce damage caused by sun and provide immunity boost), CoQ10 to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, Ceramides (lipid molecules that boost the skin’s water-retention capacity), and Caffeine which immediately gives the appearance of tighter, firmer, younger skin.
I have fine lines as well as deeper smile lines. I used the Daily Defense Cream in the morning and evening after cleansing my face. I’m not sure two month’s use would be enough to see more than minor results, but I would think that with prolonged use it could continue to improve skin conditions it is recommended for such as hydration and dryness as well as correcting skin tone and redness. “In one particular study, more than half of the participants noticed a visible difference in skin texture, improvement in elasticity, increase in skin hydration and a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles after using Cellustructure Rejuvenating Serum (CRS) for a 3-month period.”
I like that it seems to pump out just the right amount for the area of my face that I am using it on. Its recommended to use under sunscreen and dries quickly and my regular powder makeup went on smooth. I’ve included pictures of before using it and after using it. You can see it plumps and gets rid of those fine lines around the eyes. I also have a lined scar under my eye I got when I was five years old. It helps to make it less noticeable as well! So yes I do like it. And I would recommend it.
This skin care line “is the first medically directed collection that has been formulated for ideal daily skin care regimens, as well as optimized care for skin undergoing treatment and procedures”. It was “created by world renowned dermatologist and cosmetic-surgeon Mitchel P. Goldman, MD”.
This line has four regimens depending on your skin type – Dry, Normal, Oily, Acne Prone – that include cleaners, toners, rejuvenating and hydrating products. All items can be purchased individually, but there are substantial price reductions when buying an entire system. Shipping is free with purchases above $50.
I was sent a full size sample of la jolla Spa MD Vitaphenol Daily Defense Cream for review. The 1.6 fl oz “Anti-Aging Deep Rehydration Treatment” sells for $95 at www.vitaphenol.com. I received this item at no cost to me and am providing an unbiased review of same.
