So I am currently an Advanced Student Esthetician. In school we use certain products, professional products. We also have a retail area where we direct customers to items that will help their progress until their next treatment. The school I attend happens to be a carrier of Dermalogica products. As a beginner student, we received a kit full of professional sized products from the Ultra Calming line of Dermalogica. This is a great series of products. It is okay to use for all skin types and conditions. As a matter of fact, even if you have acne (and we carry an acne related line) but you tend to be very sensitive to products, I will use most of the Ultra Calming line in a treatment and ADD some elements of the Medibac line. Treating the skin type comes first, THEN treat the skin condition. Anyways....
During a product knowledge class, I came across my new "creamy crack". I love...LOVE...LOOVVEEEE this stuff.
It is the Multi Vitamin Power Firm from the Age Smart line of Dermalogica products. I know what your are thinking.....Age Smart=old people skin. WRONG! This is great as a preventative care, treatment for fine lines already appearing, and helping with some of the deeper lines we get as we age. Recently turning 31, I have a HUGE fear of wrinkles, and I already have a few "crow's feet" at my eye area. My teacher likes to say, "Chrissy, those aren't crow's feet. Those are expression lines." I say: Exactly....wrinkles.
When I first tried this stuff during class I rubbed it on the wrinkly skin on my knuckles. The lines virtually disappeared. Yes....they returned later...but for those few hours it was smoother than a baby's ass. So I bought some for my at home use, and I fell even further in love with it. It is great as a surface treatment to help mask the lines while it helps add the nourishment to the skin you need to slowly make those lines seem more faint as the weeks go on. It starts as a creamy, translucent gel. When it is rubbed into the skin it comes to a powdery gel texture and melts in. I will post some pictures later for those that may want to see the Power Firm in action.
Until then...take care.
