DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer Review!

Skinmedix was kind enough to give MakeHerUp a chance to try their fabulous online beauty site. They have so many awesome products but even better they have a great website. I have left so many online stores frustrated trying to navigate their site but I loved the setup at Skinmedix. I really like being able to shop by category, product and my absolute favorite by award winners. Once I had ordered my skincare products they came really fast, and inside the box all my products were in a cute gift bag with tissue paper and some really cool samples.

SkinMedix only carries the world’s leading anti-aging cosmeceuticals normally available only through physicians’ offices and high-end spas at much higher prices. What sets us apart is that we are an online store, so we are able to maintain low overhead costs – which means better prices on amazing products for all!



I was excited to try DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer but with the hefty price tag I  set the bar pretty high on my expectations. I have always had large pores and have used a multitude of products to combat their appearance. While a lot of them can hide my pores fairly well but I had yet to find something to actual shrink them.

That is until I tried DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer. I am truly amazed by the difference in my pores. In the two weeks I have been using DDF I have really noticed my pore size shrinking. With makeup on that are barely noticeable at this point and I don’t  need to layer a pore minmizer over my foundation. The formula itself is so light and airy it feels great on my skin and absorbs really fast. Its a big bottle and you need just a small amount to cover your whole face, if you have a problem with pores this is a must try.

DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer instantly minimizes the look of pores while it exfoliates and hydrates to continually diminish the appearance of wrinkles. This treatment provides immediate gratification with long-term results for younger, more flawless looking skin – a now and later approach to anti-aging. DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer serum contains a gel phase with a vitamin peptide complex that hydrates to allow for the natural regeneration of collagen to refine the appearance of wrinkles. The formula also has surface diffusing molecules that provide a smoothing effect and diffract light to instantly minimize the appearance of pores.

Visibly reduces pore size instantly and over time.
Immediate and long-term visible wrinkle refinement.

New! Lancôme La Vie Est Belle.


I am excited to try this out, the Iris notes sound really intriguing. I am a little hesitant about the Patchouli but am interested to see how all these notes blend.


Eau de Parfum Spray

La vie est belle”, a French expression meaning “Life is beautiful”; the manifesto of a new era. Universal yet personal, Lancôme’s femininity is a choice embraced by women, not an imposed standard. The choice to live one’s life and fill it with beauty. Your own way.

Lancôme has long fostered this conviction, and shares it today with all women in the form of an exceptional creation. The fragrance of joyful femininity and happiness. The fragrance that makes life more beautiful.

La vie est belle introduces a new olfactive story, the first ever iris gourmand. The juice is made with the most precious natural ingredients, a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance with a twist of gourmand. It entwines the elegance of iris with the strength of Patchouli and the sweetness of a gourmand blend; for an incredible scent with depth and complexity.

Top Note: The elegance of Iris becomes the backbone of the fragrance. It blossoms from the first to the last note like never before.
Middle Note: The strength of Patchouli gives strength and depth.
Base Note: A sweet gourmand adds a burst of unexpected radiance.

Kinerase Restructure Firming Cream

I was introduced to this little miracle worker through my latest GlossyBox. When I first started using it I was impressed with how well it absorbed and immediately noticed my skin had more pep. Well I am a week in and I AM IN LOVE! My skin is not only glowing but the texture is improving daily. I was just looking in the mirror thinking my makeup looked good and realized I didn’t wear any today! It has changed my skin so much not only is it firmer, my skin looks great even with no makeup and that is never the case. I am not sure if it’s made with the tears of baby unicorns but I am truly shocked at how great my skin looks.

At first I thought $98 was steep but after trying the product you use so little cream to cover your face and neck and the results make it worth every penny. I am so glad I was introduced to this product in my Summer Simplicity GlossyBox, I have seen the light!
