Say goodbye to Dull & hello to Radiance! {Dermaglow Review & Giveaway}

Its that time of year where I change my skincare products in order to reflect the Seasonal changes. With colder and drier weather on the way my skin needs a little help and one line that never disappoints is Dermaglow. I first discovered Dermaglow from a co-worker who had flawless skin. You know that type of colleague…flawless, minimal makeup, always looks fresh & perfect. Being the beauty product junkie that I am and not too shy to ask I had to know what skincare items she used. She mentioned Dermaglow, I had seen this line at Shoppers Drug Mart before but never tried them. This was back in the Spring & since that time I’ve used several products. I am also fortunate that I was approached by Dermaglow to try out a few products. With that being said I only review products I receive that I like, if no like-y than no review. In this case its a big LIKE!
Since Summer is no longer here neither is my radiant skin, blah! That means time to kick up (or scrub) the exfoliation process a notch. There are two types of exfoliation you can do; either manual and/or using glycolic based products. I like to use a combination of both for maximum results. However, you also don’t want to over exfoliate as this can strip your skin, cause irritation, and damage skin if your over doing it. I like to switch it up! For example; if I use a scrub in the morning than I’ll do that every-other day or less per week & on alternate nights use a glycolic based product. If you’ve never used glycolic based products than gently introduce these products into your skincare & as your tolerance increases so can the % of glycolic in the product & frequency.
What I like about Dermaglow products is that they’re gentle, non-drying, & non-irritant! I’ve never had a reaction to any of their products and unlike other glycolic products no redness or itchiness. Onto my faves;

Microdermabrasion Treatment-use this scrub 2-3x a week allowing a minimum of 2 days between treatments. I like to use this in the AM. The micro-magnesium crystals are gentle & fine, no scratchy feel with this scrub. I’ve noticed an improvement on my nose where I’m prone to blackheads.
Retail price $60

Glycolic 10% Gentle Peel Solution-I use this in the PM on nights I don’t use the scrub in the AM. Active ingredients; 10% Glycolic Acid, Bioactive Fruit Acids, moisturizing & soothing Jojoba, Sodium Hyaluronate . This for me is the star of the whole line! If you can’t afford to buy the scrub & this solution I’d splurge on this product (ideally both are fantastic). Improvement in skin texture, tone, and dryness.
Retail price $50
Glycolic Smoothing Moisturizer-for those that have flaky & dull skin this moisturizer is for you. I use this in the PM. Its an 8% glycolic based product that helps dehydrated, dull, tired-looking skin. Great for those worried about wrinkles as its active ingredients include; “Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 – Anti-aging, Anti-wrinkle, evening of skin tone.”(dermaglow) I’ve actual finished my sample & am going to purchase the full-size.
Retail price $40
ADVICE: when using glycolic products use a daytime moisturizer with a sunscreen!

    Hi, Kate–26<br />I am using the Dermaglow 10%AHA toner,<br />I am wondering if I can use it with the glyolic smoothing moisturizer together at night? <br /> The Scrub I am using now is Clinique Exfoliator

  11. says

    Hi Kate,<br />You can but I prefer alternating, depends on how sensitive your skin is. I actually finished the scrub &amp; sample of the smoothing cream already so just using the toner.

  12. Jen says

    Hi, <br />I got a question for the AHA products.<br />Can I use the AHA 8% lotion on day time? If I use Sun block on top of it, will I still get sun damage? <br /><br />Or should I use it only at night time to be sun safe?<br /><br />Thank you.
