How MDSUN Skin Exfoliation Pads save the day

MDSUN Skin Exfoliation Pads

MDSUN Skin Exfoliation Pads

Low point of the day:  going to the restroom after almost a full day of work, glancing in the mirror and seeing – cringe cringe cringe – a big old zit on the side of your nose.  Or on your chin.  Or anywhere on your face…and you realize it has been there for hours, through meetings and presentations and that chance run in with the very handsome guy down the hall.  Yup.  It’s time to get serious about some exfoliation.

MDSUN Skin Exfoliation Pads

Lately I have been loving the MDSUN Exfoliation Pads that I was sent to test.  These aren’t the nasty, skin killing pads of our youth…they are gentle but super effective pads of awesomeness that dissolve debris and old skin cells and make unexpected day zits a thing of the past.

These little pads of goodness tackle exfoliation through a two-tiered approach.  The first layer is glycolic acid, polyhydroxy acid, lactobionic acid, and essential vitamins that de-clog pores and dissolve excess skin cells while also moisturizing skin.  The next layer is a mixture of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients that calm irritated skin and hydrate even more deeply.

Benefits:

  • Exfoliates and penetrates the skin with effective and powerful ingredients, such as glycolic acid and niacinamide, enhancing the benefits of other skin care treatments
  • Purifies the skin by gently removing dead skin cells and resurfacing new skin cells so that the skin is left with a radiant and beautiful glow
  • Reduces and calms irritated skin safely with natural plant extracts and vitamins, including chrysanthemums and oats

MDSUN warns that the pads might cause a stinging sensation, but that doesn’t happen for me at all.  The pads have a slight fragrance that reminds me of baby powder.  I use a pad at night after cleansing and don’t put any other treatment on my skin.  After about a half hour or so, my skin actually feels sort of oily.  MDSUN says this is from ‘skin burial’, when skin produces oils that seal in the hydration.

One jar of the Skin Exfoliating Pads has 30 pads, but it lasts me several months since I find I only need to use this every three days.  That makes the price of $78 a little more palatable, and you can also order a sample for $4 to try it out for yourself before making the investment.

The end result?  Clear skin, glowing skin tone, and a super soft face.  Oh, and far less of those ‘look in the mirror and die of embarrassment’ moments.

When it comes to skincare there are two items that I crave and that I love using: eye cream and facial serum. Those two categories bring me the most pleasure and make the biggest difference in my life. That’s not to say others can be disposed of, that’s not the case, but without eye cream and a serum my skin just isn’t happy. When MDSUN sent their Med-Eye Complex Cream they made me happy. After all, my experience with MDSUN Brightening Serum was out of this world, so my expectations for this eye cream were high.

As I mentioned before MDSUN is the creation of Dr. Sun, a renowned facial plastic surgeon and medical-grade skin care specialist. He has made sure that his line is created without harsh ingredients, perfumes, or chemical scents. They are independently test so you can be assured they are hypoallergenic, hypocomedogenic, free of synthetic preservatives, hydroquinone, fragrance and PABA.

Let’s take a look at this interesting bottle. It’s really stunning on my vanity and stands out with its bright yellow shade. The tube is encased in clear acrylic which makes it look even more appealing. The yellow made me sit up and take notice since it feels like it’s working to brighten your eyes even before using it.

The applicator is one of the best I’ve used because it works. I’ve got so many eye creams with a similar top but they often stop working way before I’m done with it. This roller works all the time and I can get out the perfect amount. If I get a little heavy handed, I just use the amount on both eyes. Push down gently and a trio of eye cream comes out so you can roll it under your eyes.

Now let’s learn why this is such a majestic eye cream. It’s meant for all skin types: dry, oily, combination, sensitive and pigmentation skin. MDSUN Med-Eye Complex Cream is infused with over a dozen peptides, ceramides, human fibroblast conditioned media (stem sells), human adipose stem cells and Vitamins A and E. No cheap ingredients, only quality ones that you’ll feel safe having on the delicate area under your eyes.

MDSUN Med-Eye Complex Cream works to promote firmness and increase blood circulation. It’s a wonderful hydrator and keeps my eyes softer looking. It works well on my fine lines and dark circles. I do have puffiness under my eyes and it softens that but it’s not gone and I fear nothing but a surgeon will be able to change that.

This is a luxury skincare item at a luxury price ($210) but the benefits help make this worthwhile especially if you are looking to protect and prevent further aging. Because it stimulates cell renewal it works well on over 40 women. It helps with natural collagen and elastin production that we lose as we age. Your undereye area will be firmer and your fine lines won’t be as bothersome.

One particularly nice thing about MDSUN is that they sell samples of most of their products. For example a sample of Med-Eye Complex Cream is $6 and a sample of their Intensive Eye Gel is $2. The wonderful Brightening Serum I reviewed has a sample that’s $3. While I don’t know the size of the samples I do know it’s a great way to test your reaction to a product while also providing you a sample for travel or a workout bag. Plus you will receive 3 samples with a purchase.

I’m looking forward to more MDSUN in my life since my two experiences have been marvelous. Have you been bit by the MDSUN bug?  —  Marcia

When given the opportunity to use luxury skincare you know I’m going to say yes. MDSun is definitely luxury and one of the finest brands I’ve been able to work with. I’ve got two products that were sent for testing. MDSun Brightener Serum is the one I’ve been testing the longest and I don’t want to let go – like ever!

My skin is looking more youthful and brighter since I began using this amazing serum. I have become a skincare junkie and I’m happy to try many brands especially when they are fragrance-free like this serum. This is a product to save up for, it’s $220 for 30ml so it’s a splurge. But it’s your face and you only have one of those.

MDSun is the creation of Dr. Sun, a renowned facial plastic surgeon and medical-grade skin care specialist. He has made sure that his line is created without harsh ingredients, perfumes, or chemical scents. They are independently test so you can be assured they are hypoallergenic, hypocomedogenic, free of synthetic preservatives, hydroquinone, fragrance and PABA.

The serum is housed in an opaque white bottle with a pump applicator. The serum itself is very thin and spreads easily. It’s not watery thin but it’s not a heavy serum. It never feels sticky on me and it doesn’t affect the products I layer over it. I apply this after cleansing as it’s the thinnest of my skincare.

I don’t need a lot to cover my entire face which is great since the bottle will last me a long time.

So why do you want this serum? MDSun Brightener Serum “helps to resist against visible concerns, including dullness, dark spots, age spots, acne scarring, sun damage and uneven skin tone, giving your skin a brighter and more translucent look.” The key ingredients are wonderful since it’s infused with Licorice root extract, azeloyl glycine, and niacinamide. It’s designed to naturally reduce any discoloration on your skin as well as to help unclog pores. I use masks and exfoliate on a regular basis but I still get clogged pores. That’s been a thing of the past since I’ve been using this magical serum.

I’m a big fan of hyaluronic acid in products since it helps boost my skin’s moisture level and keep me from becoming dehydrated. It also contains mulberry root extract which hides the appearance of fine lines.

To purchase go to the MDSun website so that you can get all these benefits:

  • Improves skin tone, buffers the look of lines and wrinkles, and enhances skin clarity
  • Reduces dark spots, discolorations, and restores a naturally refined radiance

MDSUN Super Hydration B Serum and Intensive Eye Gel

MDSUN Skincare, the cosmeceutical line created by Dr. George Sun, is an intriguing line that features some of the most effective skin care ingredients available.  They recently sent us their Super Hydration B Serum ($85) and Intensive Eye Gel ($105) to test, which proved to be an impressive introduction to this line.

MDSUN Super Hydration B Serum and Intensive Eye Serum

The Super Hydration B Serum is a skin treatment that is housed in one of the most beautiful bottles I have ever seen for a serum.  Usually serums have rather boring packaging, but the silver and blue glass bottle is a stunner!  Of course, looks aren’t everything and it’s what is inside that counts.  This serum has great ingredients that hydrate and smooth skin.  Here are the benefits listed on the web page:

MDSUN Super Hydration B Serum

  • Spreads easily and fast absorbing, non-greasy finish
  • Nourishes and hydrates the skin for a glowing complexion
  • Leaves your skin feeling exceptionally smooth
  • Protects against moisture loss and oxidative damage

The major ingredients include sodium hyaluronate, which is the salt form of skin plumping hyaluronic acid; panthenol, which is another name for vitamin B5, which keeps skin healthy and blemish-free; plus gluconolactone and lactobionic acid, which are similar to AHAs but less likely to irritate skin.  These ingredients reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

I use this serum morning and night after cleansing and before moisturizing, and it leaves my skin looking and feeling great.  Because it helps skin retain moisture, it plumps up fine lines and wrinkles and definitely improves their appearance.  I know I will use every last drop of this serum and it is on my repurchase list.

MDSUN Intensive Eye Serum

MDSUN Intensive Eye Gel also has very attractive packaging.  The bottle is a cheery, sunny yellow – and so is the eye gel!  It definitely took me aback the first time I tried it.  This eye gel has lots of powerful antioxidants and vitamins to reduce dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles.  The benefits include:

  • Dark Eye Circles – high concentrations of Vitamin K work decrease the venous condition that causes dark eye circles
  • Pigmentation – ascorbic acid works to reduce melanin pigmentation
  • Static Wrinkles/Movement Wrinkles – oat extracts for hydration and arginine for improving wrinkles
  • Puffiness – anti-inflammatory ingredients reduce swelling and soothe skin
  • Lightweight, fast absorbing texture is perfect for oily/combination skin
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Fragrance free
  • Paraben free

The major ingredients include Vitamin K1, an anti-inflammatory that helps reduce dark circles; acetyl hexapeptide-8, which is a cell-communicating peptide; ubiquinone CoQ10, which stimulates collagen production and heals UV damage; and ascorbic acid, a type of vitamin C that works as an antioxidant.

I use this eye gel morning and night and am very pleased with the results.  I prefer an eye cream over an eye gel, but the gel is certainly calming to the eye area and it minimizes puffy morning eyes.  I will keep using this in the a.m. and will probably switch to an eye cream for night.

MDSUN Intensive Eye Serum and Super Hydration B Serum

Overall, I am quite impressed with these two products.  The packaging is stellar and the product formulas are elegant with extremely effective ingredients.   I think this is a line to get excited about, and I can’t wait to try more of MDSUN Skincare.  – Lisa
