Skin Care Review: MD Formulations Facial Cleanser

by K. Krishna


Brightens Skin and helps renew skin cells for a fresh, healthy look

Expensive and can be harsh on sensitive skin. Increases sun sensitivity

I've been using MD Formulations on a beauty therapist's recommendation for around 5 months. After the first two months I would get comments on how healthy and radiant my skin looked. As a teenager I never had acne, but once I hit 25 I had real problems with small blackhead type acne on my forehead which was impossible to get rid of and I have been struggling with it for the last 3 years. This has completely disappeared using these products (Cleanser, Scrub and Moisturiser).

The cleanser is lovely and cleans your face without stripping. The moisturiser can be hard work as it is very thick, but once you get the hang of how much you need, it works well and lasts all day. I used to have very dry patches on my cheeks and a very oily T-Zone which has been completely evened out. The moisturiser, although expensive, has lasted nearly 5 months.

I'm not a big fan of the scrub as it is very harsh and drying. There are other products out there which do a much better job. Occasionally pimples appear and I find them extremely slow healing (compared to before I started using this product) and I tend to use other quick-fix products to get rid of them.

Overall a very good product. It does take a bit of getting used to though.
