Dermitage with Rejuvaline

Is a Solution for:
Sagging Skin
November 3, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 6 Comments
If you surf the internet, it's hard not to be assaulted by commercials for Dermitage where a waxy-looking young face is next to a withered old hag. I have to hand it Dermitage though, they have managed to out-bullshit Dermapril SP and IQ Derma.

Dermitage is probably backed by an insomniac attorney. Everything about this product line has been trademarked, registered and patented. The secret sauce in Dermitage is the trademarked Rejuvaline. This is glucasamine complex (trade-marked UGL), Lifting Spheres (patented), Inflacin (registered), botanical antioxidants, Qusomes (patented). There is even "aloe Vera extract and other patented ingredients [that] soothe your skin and help reduce the appearance of redness and swelling." If they could have patented aloe vera, they surely would have.

Should you be wondering: "Patented Lifting Spheres settle beneath your wrinkles to capture the moisture that would normally escape from your skin. These spheres gently swell and lift from underneath to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles." While Qusomes are made by a nanotechnology company and "are non-phospholipid liposomes, spontaneously formed when water is added".

Less imaginative is the copy-cat free trial, which just like Dermapril's isn't free at all. You'll pay $5.95 in shipping and processing. You will have 14 days to try the Dermitàge Anti–Aging System and if you want to cancel you'll have to call them up and return the bottle. If you don't you'll be charged $69.95 for what you have consumed and the same amount every month for what you are about to.

For the gullible who are petrified of being unable to suppress their inner withered hag by any other means, I shall outline what you'll be getting for 70 bucks a month. Let's take Dermitage Instant Lifting Creme. There is more silicone in this (five different types) than in Pamela's Anderson's bosom. I have a feeling that moisture retaining hyaluronic acid may approximate for the 'Lifting Spheres'.

Equally un-hi tech are the grape seed, teas, algae, yeast and aloe. There is nothing wrong with these perfectly good anti-oxidants, but you'll find them in just about any potion these days. And that's it. Apart from a few emollients and potential irritants that include a couple of PEGs, 1-2 hexanediol and the antibacterial tropolone.

I also checked out Dermitage Skin Renewal Complex. This is where the trade-marked UGL comes in. It is glucosamine HCI, a fairly common amino acid found in shellfish (and, indeed, many other cosmetic brands).

    My husband has used Dermitage skin renewal complex for 10+ years and it works. He is in the sun all the time and does not use sunscreen unless I’m there to make him. He looks amazing no one believes he is 62 years old. And it’s not because his has genes. I don’t think you really know you’re talking about. This is the only face cream he has ever used.

    i am 54 and have tried everything for skin from lifecell to athena to dior, lancome, creme da lamer yadda yadda yadda. Fortunately i do have good genes... i have come to the final conclusion using retin a, suncreen, hydroquinone (for brightening) out of the tube.. your dermatologist can prescribe all of these. Plus a good moisturizer. No more infomercials or internet blah blah!

    I was on the internet checking out different skin care lines and come across Dermitàge. I almost went for the 14 day trial as well. But, something told me to continue reading about this product. That was when I came to this site. Thanks for the informative information. You guys saved me time and money.

    I was surfing the web, as many of us do, trying to find ALL the answers, to ALL of life's questions on the web. Before my good fortune in finding the TIA website, I found the Dermitage Free Trial website. I tried Dermitage for 3 weeks. There is nothing notable or remarkable about Dermitage. It hydrates and moisturizes like any other drugstore product might. But of course, due to their marketing, I was expecting so much more than that! I have to say though, that the return process was painless and I actually spoke to a live person on the phone to get this done. They never charged my credit card (other than the $5.95 for shipping & handling)...Unlike Rejuvenate Worldwide who, in my opinion conduct business in a truly criminal manner. Again, another terrible story from my pre-TIA days! I'm so glad I've arrived, thanks TIA for being here!
