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.

Benefits:

Doubles skin surface renewal rate in just 5 days.
Visibly reduces pore size instantly and over time.
Immediate and long-term visible wrinkle refinement.
Clinical Results After 3 Weeks:

70% improvement in lines and wrinkles.
65% reduction in pore size.
65% improvement in overall appearance.
Size: 50 ml / 1.7 oz

InStyle’s Best Beauty Buys Editors’ Picks

Neutrogena Acne Wash

Our trusty cleanser with a zingy new grapefruit scent. This invigorating face wash tackles pimples and sloughs off debris with a powerful dose of salicylic acid (exactly 2 percent)—but it doesn’t dry out the skin, even when used both in the morning and at night. ($7, drugstore.com)

Fresh Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15

This is the lip color you wish you had been born with—and because the sheer, rosy hue flatters all complexions, people might believe that you were. Bonus: The pigment is delivered in an oil-rich bullet that hydrates every bit as well as your thickest balm (without the goop factor). ($23, fresh.com)

DDF Advanced Moisture Defense UV Cream SPF 15

Flaky skin will happily soak up this rich cream, which is infused with turmeric, an Indian spice with powerful antioxidant properties. In clinical studies it made skin feel firmer and decreased fine lines in eight weeks. We’re just as pleased with the immediate results: plump, quenched skin, and a healthy glow. ($105, ddfskincare.com)

Aveeno Nourish + Moisturize

The hydrating wheat complex of this shampoo and conditioner penetrates the hair shaft, repairing strands from the inside out. It rinses away, leaving no residue, and has a gentle, unassuming scent. ($8, cvs.com)

Colgate Wisp

Sure, they’re tiny, but their effect is titanic! The breath-freshening beads nestled in these disposable toothbrushes don’t require water or rinsing. Bonus: They’ll fit into the smallest of evening bags for hassle-free cleaning. ($8, drugstore.com)

Do you have a problem with redness?

Does your face have blotches of red? I do too! I recently picked a couple redness treatments to try out, and I’m happy to say they both work amazingly!  I get these patches of red on my cheeks, and it drives me nuts. Not your everyday glow look – like annoying patchy red.  These two products both worked at combatting that problem!
