This Product’s Overall Rating:


Let me first start off by saying — I have never used any anti-aging retinol based products before! I have extremely sensitive combination skin, so I have to be cautious when trying new products!

I was immediately drawn to the ‘time machine’ which turns back the clock, within this high-potency (0.5%) time release retinol formula.

Week 1 — I used a FutureDerm once a day for two days. I wanted to be sure that I had no irritation or reaction, especially given the circumstance (my face)! This light weight non oily formula — was extremely gentle on my skin. I had no reactions to using this product, nor did I notice a difference in my skin’s immediate appearance! Week 2, I repeated the process — which changed at Week 3 — since there still was no signs of irritations or reactions! I took it up a notch — by adding a day to my routine in Week 3, but skipping days in between usage.

Now let me pause a minute, to let some of you who don’t know me — that I am a single mom of 3 -_-! I can teach a class in stress 101 (hence the reason I am such an avid bliss seeker). I have come to notice that my moods can often play out on my skin and hair! I had an uneven skin tone, with bags under my eyes from lack of sleep (mompreneur), as well as a dull complexion!

By Week 4, I am sold! There was something different about me — and couldn’t quite put my finger on it! I’m a ‘wash-n-go’ kind of mom! I usually only get all dressed up — for events and reviews mostly! I am a die hard ‘au natural femme fatale’, as I like to keep it simple — and enjoy enhancing my natural blessings rather than mask them! As I washed my face (I prefer to use organic and natural products),  on Week 4 day 3, I looked at my refection…only to be blown away by what I saw! My affirmations never looked this good before! I had no dark or uneven tones anywhere — in fact, my complexion appeared lighter (which often happens during the winter months, as it recoups from the sun damage of a sweet summer’s passing). I was indeed — gazing upon flawless skin! And it wasn’t in any magazine!

I highly recommend this product. It is the reason I am obsessed with prevention of aging! I am happy to launch the Immortal Beauty Series on Media Maven, with the debut of FutureDerm — the future of FAB skin!

*Beauty Fixx — use a pea size amount on clean dry skin — once daily! For beginners, I would recommend you use gradually, increasing only as your skin allows!  I love to experiment with my beauty products — and love to boost my beauty regimen! FutureDerm worked amazing with my Sea Buckthorn Berry Facial Cleanser, which is high in beautify omegas. Try adding some Argan Oil to your night time regimen with FutureDerm — and experience the blissful fountain of youth recipe of the Goddesses!
