I know that the saying goes, ‘’Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’’, but to be honest, eye creams and facial creams are mine. Not so long ago I discovered MD Complete and they were kind enough to send me some fun products to test for you guys. I happily jumped on the opportunity!
MD Complete was created by Dr. Brian Zelickson, a Minnesota native (see you in 3 weeks St Paul), in order to provide access to dermatologist-level results in the appearance of skin tone & texture without a prescription. What initially attracted me to this brand was the fact that their products are free of Parabens, Phalates, Mineral Oil, Petroleum Ingredients, Microplastics, Coal Tar, BHA etc. + it is cruelty free!
Let’s face it, there is nothing any of us can do to stop aging and please don’t try to do it by going under the knife. NO ONE LOOKS GOOD WHILE TRYING TO IMITATE A BLOW-UP DOLL! What we CAN DO is eat better, drink a lot of water, and use quality products that use safe and first-rate ingredients.
MD Complete offers two types of skin care lines: Acne Clearing and Anti-Aging. I decided to go with Anti-Aging products mostly because it included MD Complete Eye Wrinkle Corrector (yes, I am at that stage in my life).
While I’ve tested and used different eye wrinkle and puffiness reduction creams, I feel all of them provided only temporary solutions. Thus, I always take any product that reportedly erases dark circles and wrinkles with a grain (or five) of salt.
Products I received:
1. Wrinkle & Radiance Remedy $39.99
This product aims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as dullness and dry skin.
Made with highly concentrated ingredient such as uniquely hydrating and high potency Retinol and Vitamin C that will help eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and firm the skin. Additionally, it smooths & evens the skin tone and texture for a younger-looking complexion.
How to use it:
After cleansing and applying eye cream, gently apply 1-2 pumps to cover entire face including outer crow’s feet area. Avoid using under eyes, on eyelids or lips.
It feels super gentle; almost velvety on the skin. I can feel my face glowing after using it only twice. Although I don’t have a lot of wrinkles, my target area is my forehead and I have noticed a change in the first 5 days of usage. I will continue using it daily for more complete results.
2. Eye Wrinkle Corrector $28.99
Hydrating eye cream treatment that reduces appearance of crow's feet & wrinkles, firms skin around the eyes, and brightens skin tone for brighter and more youthful-looking eyes!
How to use it:
Use in AM and PM after cleansing. Using ring finger, gently pat a pea-sized amount of product under eyes and on crow's feet area. Avoid using on eyelids. Can be used around the mouth to reduce the appearance of fine lines.
After using it for nearly two weeks, there is some improvement in the texture and appearance of the skin under my eyes. It definitely looks less sunken and a little firmer. Any less than that requires copious amounts of concealer and foundation to look passably human the next day. I have great hope in this product and I can’t wait to see the results after continues use. The best thing about using this cream is that if I miss a couple of days, my eyes don’t reduce to their previous state and I can just pick up improving the appearance where I left off.
3. Retinol Vitamin C Concentrate
This concentrated serum works with any skincare regimen to boost results. It's an easy “add” — just massage 2-4 drops into your skin before applying skincare treatment products. Unlike other serums this product is pure concentrate -- it's not diluted with water (which is often the first ingredient in other products). What it does is improves radiance & brightens complexion and evens skin tone and refines skin texture. Also, it is great for nourishing hair, scalp, nails and cuticles.
How to use:
Apply after cleansing and before your treatment products. Take an extra minute to massage the concentrate deeply into your skin.
This serum comes in a 15-ml glass bottle and it just feels and looks luxurious. It has a faint hint of orange peel and has a great oily texture. When I started using the products, I used a smaller amount and I’m very satisfied with the results. My skin feels so much brighter and cleaner. I highly recommend it!
Overall, the products I was able to try out performed great and I highly recommend them. With under $100 this trio from MD Complete is worth every dollar! Something to consider for Valentine’s day! *Hint, hint guys!
