I love science, and I’m also a beauty junky so I was thrilled to get samples of the clean and cruelty-free skincare line by renowned skin care specialist Adrienne Denese, M.D. Ph.D. Harvard and Cornell trained. The Dr. Denese Skin Science® line of products uses the most advanced, clinically-proven active ingredients in the highest possible percentages to achieve spectacular results.
I especially love her quote,
“You do not have problem skin. You have problem products. When you use the right products, your problem skin will resolve.”
As one of the first doctors to specialize in anti-aging medicine, Dr. Denese is committed to helping women look younger, feel better, and live healthier lives.
The first product I tried was the Dr. Denese SkinScience Advanced Firming Facial Pads. These pads exfoliate, improve radiance and clarity, and even out your skin tone.
- VISIBLE QUICK RESULTS – Our signature, professional-grade Advanced Firming Facial Pads with proprietary Actizone Firming Factor delivers the perfect dose of daily exfoliating and firming effect. Our doctor developed, clinically tested and proven pads exfoliate away dead old skin cells and facilitate the rise of fresh young skin cell to the surface. A product that truly delivers to visibly shrink the look of pores, reduce the look of lines, even skin tones and bring radiance back into the skin.
- EXFOLIATE SKIN TO PROFECTION – Each pad is infused with innovative ingredients including a high percentage of our go-to AHA, glycolic acid, in order to successfully address lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores and stimulate collagen production. Provides glycolic peel pads at perhaps the highest level of glycolic acid in the marketplace to exfoliate skin to perfection.
- ANTIOXIDANTS & POWERFUL PEPTIDES – Aloe vera has antioxidant qualities added to help soothe the skin and is great for hydration. Contains a combination of several powerful peptides known to combat aging, help promote skin barrier function and repair, smooth the look of lines and wrinkles and improve tone and elasticity.
Next, I tried Dr. Denese SkinScience HydroShield Eye Emulsion. I have fragile, pale skin so I’m always on the lookout for products that can improve the look and feel of the area around my eyes.
The HydroShield Eye Emulsion Cream is formulated with AcquaCell technology that helps keep the skin under the eyes smooth, hydrated, and flawless by reducing water loss. By re-hydrating dry, dehydrated skin, this amazing anti-aging eye cream will soften the appearance of dry lines and wrinkles so you can say goodbye to crow’s feet!
- INTENSE HYDRATION – HydroShield with AcquaCell Technology helps to reduce transepidermal water loss in the skin and soften the appearance of dry lines and wrinkles by re-hydrating dry, parched, and dehydrated skin. Highly effective in building the skin and improving the look of even deeper lines and wrinkles. Made with 7 skin building peptides at very high percentages and botanical stem cells. Clinical studies have shown up to 136% increase in hydration in thirty minutes.
- SUPPORTS A YOUTHFUL APPEARANCE – HydroShield Eye Emulsion with AcquaCell Technology works to hydrate and retain moisture in the skin, giving skin a more youthful appearance. Few people realize that many of the lines and wrinkles around the eyes are reversible to a large extent with the right scientifically designed eye cream. Our HydroShield Eye Emulsion with AcquaCell Technology is one of these exceptional eye creams.
- REDUCE THE LOOK OF WRINKLES – Contains sodium PCA, the hydrating molecule of youth, and the extraordinary hydrator watermelon extract, to help improve trans epidermal water loss. Niacinamide is added as a much-needed B vitamin for skin health. Working together for a dramatic reduction in the look of lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet and cross hatched lines under the eyes. Helping to make the skin plump, hydrated, soft, supple, less lined and look years younger!
Another great anti aging product from the Dr. Denese Skin Science® line and is a multiple QVC Customer Choice Award winner is the Dr. Denese HydroShield Ultra Moisturizing Face Serum. This facial serum locks in moisture to reduce wrinkles and lines and will give you a perfectly dewy complexion. Clinical studies showed that the serum actually increased the hydration level of skin 184% in just 15 minutes time.
- ADVANCED HYDRATION – Our Hydroshield Serum is based on years of medical research that identified a unique and proprietary technology that we named Hydroshield Technology. Clinically proven and a multiple QVC Customer Choice Award winner, a supercharged hydrating serum that locks in moisture to drastically reduce the look of dry lines and wrinkles and helps plump the appearance of the skin.
- PROVIDES SKIN IDENTICAL LIPIDS – As we age, skin lipids decline, leaving the skin dry and line prone. Our proprietary blend supplies a balance of skin identical lipids, as it is extremely important to build lipid barriers as much as possible to protect what lies within. Also contains ceramides and essential fatty acids to help the skin lipid barrier to function at a much younger level. Hydration and moisture is locked into the skin, to rapidly improve the appearance of dry lines and wrinkles.
- LOCKS IN MOISTURE – Contains retinol which helps to firm the skin, reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and stimulate collagen production. Working to smooth lines and wrinkles and improve tone and elasticity. Ceramides are added to help mimic your skin’s lipid barrier, prevent water loss, improve suppleness and skin texture while calming the skin. Studies have shown 184% increase in skin hydration after 15 minutes!
Finally, I tried the Dr. Denese HydroShield Hydrating Dream Cream, the first face cream built with an intelligent hydration technology that intuitively finds dry patches and delivers just the right amount of moisture to each area. Dry eye areas soak it up, while your oily areas ignore it–how ingenious is that?
- INCREASE MOISTURE RETENTION – Our proprietary Intelligent Hydration Technology increases moisture retention and reduces the appearance of dry lines and wrinkles, rejuvenates dry, parched skin and hydrates for a youthful appearance. It is designed to work in tandem with our Hydroshield Serum to lock in hydration and create a moisture magnet for the skin, helping to prevent moisture loss. Hydroshield Dream Cream represents our proprietary Hydroshield Technology in a cream form.
- DELIVERS HYDRATION WHERE YOU NEED IT MOST – Our all-time customer favorite, Dream Cream, is built with a unique Intelligent Hydration Technology to deliver more hydration where you need more versus less depending on skin’s needs. This way your dry area around the eyes and cheek gets more of what they need whereas your oily T zone receives significantly less.
- ADVANCED FORMULA – Intelligent Hydration Technology mimics the skin’s own natural lipids and helps to maintain moisture. Retinol helps firm the skin, reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and stimulate collagen production. Powerful peptides, known to combat aging, helps promote skin barrier function and repair, smoothing of lines and wrinkles and improve tone and elasticity. Ceramides help mimic your skin’s lipid barrier, prevent water loss, improves suppleness and texture.
The Dr. Denses SkinScience SPF 30 Defense Day Cream 3-in-1 Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection is a tinted day cream and is oil free to protect you from the sun. From my experience, tinted face creams with SPF protection can be greasy and problematic for those with sensitive skin, but this product feels super lightweight, soft, and moisturizing. The hint of tint actually makes my skin look healthier and more youthful.
- MULTI-PURPOSE DAY CREAM – Beauty and broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection in one! We’ve developed a unique day cream, which represents three products in one. Works as an anti-aging day cream clinically proven to firm skin, an SPF 30 UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection and a flawless, light coverage make up. One of the first BB creams on the market that also works to prevent wrinkles, lines, age spots, loss of firmness and discolorations.
- FLAWLESS COVERAGE – Naturally tinted with our proprietary self-adjusting melanin technology, Pro Melanin Factor for an instant, sheer coverage that instantly makes your skin look flawless, even colored and hydrated. This innovative formula tinted moisturizer is oil free and matte in appearance. This product is made without parabens or dyes, and never animal tested.
- LIGHT-WEIGHT PROTECTION – Instead of being chalky, thick, or white, this cream is hydrating and pleasant to wear, delivering SPF 30 UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection even to the eye area. The sun can be your skin’s worst enemy, a lot of skin issues including enlarged pores, lines, loss of elasticity, age spots, red capillaries may have something to do with the sun. So it is important to find a day cream and sun screen in one to ensure the SPF effect of the day cream is not diluted.
