BUYER BEWARE – Please read this entire review and comments before purchasing this product.
As we all get older (and believe me, the years are going by fast!) we not only want to still look youthful, but we want to do so in a more natural way. Don’t get me wrong, I am actually very proud of my age, and I really do not want to look years younger. I just want my skin to have a youthful vibrancy – despite a few crow’s feet. And I want my face to be expressive, so injecting poison into my skin is absolutely not an option. Dermology is a natural skin care line that was created for women (and men) who share my desire for youthful, glowing skin that looks healthy with a minimum of make up or camouflage. Before we determine the pluses and minuses of our Dermology Review, let’s delve a little deeper into the Dermology anti-aging system.
What is It?
Dermology has been a front runner in anti-aging for over 11 years. The product line’s original creation was the Dermology anti-aging system – skin care products that are claimed to combine the best of natural ingredients with the latest scientific advancements in the skin care niche. Since its inception, this skin care line has grown to encompass every skin condition imaginable. However, for the sake of our Dermology review, we will be focusing on their anti-aging system.
The Dermology anti-aging system was one of the first in the market place to blend the finest natural ingredients with the best of science. As such, the company has made some pretty bold claims – from visibly reducing the appearance of fine lines, improving skin elasticity, restoring skin’s vibrancy and (with regular use) protecting the skin from damaging free radicals and future aging. The question remains – is the Dermology anti-aging system hype … or does it really work?
What We Like
There are some things we like about the Dermology anti-aging system. There are a few quality ingredients in this system. One of which we are incredibly excited about is the use of Hylauronic Acid. Though it sounds a bit scary, Hylauronic Acid is actually a naturally occurring substance in the dermis of our skin. Simply put, this incredible element has the ability to bind moisture to itself and hold it for hours. It’s only logical that when Hylauronic Acid is in abundant supply (in our teens and twenties) – our skin looks moist and dewy. As we age, however – our skin’s supply of Hylauronic Acid diminishes and so does the youthful appearance.
Listed below are a few of the other things we like about Dermology:
- Member of the Natural Products Association
- Targeting approach to anti-aging
- Products are made in the USA
- Risk-Free Guarantee
What We Don’t Like
So in providing you the most objective review possible, we would be remiss if we didn’t point out the obvious flaws with the Dermology anti-aging system.
First, as our website’s name implies, we are strong advocates using only natural and/or organic products to preserve and enhance our beauty. To that point, we must discuss the fact that the Dermology line contains many ingredients that are not 100% natural – though we really do not know why. Granted – these ingredients may have been ‘clinically proven’ to be effective to a certain degree. They are, nonetheless – synthetic ingredients with no scientific studies determining their safety. Please be mindful of the fact that the cosmetics industry is self-regulating and, as such, skin care companies are not held accountable for the safety of their ingredients. So the question remains – if you cannot prove an ingredient’s safety … why put it in your product?
Second – albeit this is true of most of the products we review – there is a significant cost factor involved with regular use of this product line. So if you’re looking for bargain prices, you’re better off going to the local drugstore. And for the same amount of money (or less), you can choose a quality natural organic skin care product line that contains no synthetic ingredients.
Overall, we are a bit disappointed with the Dermology anti-aging system. Don’t get us wrong – the efficacy of the product is very good. There is obviously quite a bit a bit of science behind the product and many people are getting great results – however, it definitely does not fit our standards for all natural skin care products. In this day and age, we honestly feel that there is no need to be putting anything but natural and/or organic ingredients on our precious skin.
For all of the above reasons, we cannot provide Dermology with anything other than a rating. Is it a horrible product? No, it is not. However, when it comes to high quality, natural organic skin care lines, we feel that there are better choices.

** Editor’s Note** ~ We’ve recently received several e mails from loyal Dermology users inquiring why we give this product only 3 out 5 stars. Though we completely respect the fact that they are getting great results with the product, we are and always have been advocates of natural, organic and chemical free skin care products. As we appreciate the efficacy of the Dermology anti-aging cream as well as its satisfied customers, we are in no way bashing the product line. We simply must stay true to our beliefs.
