I was given a great opportunity to review Dermagist Miracle Cosmeceuticals Complete Rejuvenation System and today was Day One. On the first day you are only supposed to use the Original Wrinkle Smoothing Cream as it preps your face for the rest of the system. Well… as I was taking the first picture today I thought to myself, why not do posts throughout the process? Mainly because I thought this picture was amusing and wanted to share it with you!
An interesting thing I noticed while applying the cream was that I could feel it. Not in the way one feels a cream or cleanser on their face, but as if my face were firming. This isn’t an exaggeration and I didn’t notice anything physically different, but it was enough to take note of it and take another look at what was inside. The Original Wrinkle Smoothing Cream’s main ingredient is Matrixyl or palmitoyl pentapeptide-3.
Matrixyl was discovered through two branches of dermatological research: the search for substances that accelerate healing skin wounds and the study of what causes wrinkles. Similarly to copper peptides, Matrixyl stimulates the lower layers of the skin to heal themselves, thus accelerating the healing of wounds. Cells called fibroblasts are responsible for knitting together wounds of the skin. As you may know, as one ages wounds take longer to heal. This is partially because fibroblasts slowly lose the capacity for collagen production.
Matrixyl stimulates the “matrix” layers in the skin — primarily collagen and fibronectin. When stimulated, the skin produces more collagen. Loss of collagen is what leads to thinning skin and the wrinkling of newly inelastic skin. Matrixyl helps to counteract this natural part of the aging process. – Wrinkle Review
In other words, it works. So perhaps what I was feeling was a reaction to the Matrixyl, the feeling of something firming on my face automatically. I had no bad reaction and it was not an ill feeling, in fact it actually made me feel promise in this product!
I’m looking forward to getting to Day Three, in which I bring in the Dynamic Age Defying Serum. This targets wrinkles, redness and large pores; the last two of which I deeply need. My small wrinkles have nothing on my splotchy red areas and the large pores on my forehead and chin. Until then though, I will happily draw multiple circles into my face with the Original Wrinkle Smoothing Cream and keep you updated.
At the end of my journey with the Complete Rejuvenation System, you’ll get a chance to win your own! If you don’t want to wait and you want to try it with me, you can purchase the Complete Rejuvenation System on Dermagist for a remarkable deal on all three products!
