How Vivant Skin Care describes the product

Derm-a-renew is a powerful combination of oligopeptides and retinyl propionate (vitamin a) to boost cellular metabolism.
About the Product
  • Gentle formula perfect for sensitive skin and to build a tolerance for more intense anti-aging treatments
  • Stimulates skin cell production of elastin fibers for a firmer, more supple skin tone
  • Ingredients like lactic acid, kojic acid and oligopeptides reduce the appearance of fine lines, smooth skin texture and improve acne
Most effective when used as part of Vivant Skin Care recommended 4 step at-home regimen consisting of an exfoliating cleanser, tonic/toner, Vitamin A propionate skin conditioner, and skin protectant. Progress to a more advanced Vivant Skin Care Vitamin A therapy once your skin has acclimated to Derm-A-RenewTM.

Anti-aging  serum  with a dispense  dropper

Key Ingredients: • Lactic Acid: an AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) derived from sour milk hydrates the skin by sloughing off old dead skin cells • Oligopeptides: rejuvenating blend of peptides that invigorates skin cells for a firmer, more youthful complexion • Retinyl Propionate: Vitamin A that works at the cellular level to improve cellular metabolism, promote a firmer complexion, reduce discoloration, and improves the vibrancy of the skin • Urea: (humectant): binds moisture to the skin and keeps skin smooth and supple. Promotes re-hydration • Niacinamide: a water-soluble form of Vitamin B; has a firming effect with anti-inflammatory properties • Kojic Acid: inhibitor of the formation of pigments in plants and animal tissues. It is used in cosmetics to lighten skin. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties

Start usage every other day for two weeks by applying over the entire area (NO spot treatment). Apply daily after two weeks. Mild irritation is normal. If it occurs, skip a few days and restart every other day. Once the skin has acclimated to Derm-A-RenewTM, graduate to a more advanced Vivant therapy. If exposed to the sun, wear a hat and repeat your sunscreen application every two hours.

My opinion

Anti-aging  serum before  and after  pictures
              Vivant Skin Care Derm-A-Renew Skin perfecting Lotion is a yellow-ish serum. It comes in a dark glass bottle with a dispense dropper. It feels like a light lotion. It spreads really well on the skin and soaks in very well. It is a fast-drying product. It gives the skin a silky/glossy look.

              I would be lying if I told you that everything was all rosy with the product in the beginning. This product can dry up your skin if you don't use it as directed. I pushed the envelope a little and applied it to my face twice a day/morning  and night. Three days later, I started to notice severe dryness on my cheeks. I stopped using the product for two days and used coconut oil on the area instead. I wanted to stop using the product altogether, but when I read the bottle, it says that "mild irritation" was normal. By the seventh day, I felt comfortable enough to use the product every other day as directed on the bottle. I applied a little bit to my face and took the picture on the right (above  picture).  This product is very powerful.

             After using the product for over two weeks, I started to notice how plumped my face looked. The lines on my eyelids started to disappear, my skin started to look brighter,  and my pores started to shrink. I also noticed  less blemishes and whiteheads. The best part about using this product is looking at my face in the mirror and seeing how it glows.

The bottom line

                 It took a few days for my skin to get used to the product. Using it every other day is ideal for oily skin. If you have dry, sensitive skin, I recommend that you start with a small amount every other day for a week. If your skin doesn't look  like you've been sunbathing in Jamaica without using any sunscreen sunburned, then you can start using a little bit more every other day. Before you buy Vivant Skin Care Derm-A-Renew, keep in mind that it is a very powerful, all-in-1 skin perfecting  lotion that can have a reverse effect on your skin if not used properly.
