An occupational hazard of running this website is that I try out more new products than my Princess and the Pea-worthy sensitive skin can bear. Whenever I suffer breakouts (a new sunscreen is a regular culprit), I end up taking refuge in IMAGE's Ormedic range and, in particular, the Balancing Bio-peptide Crème ($40.00 for 1oz).

This is one of those rare potions that seems to be entirely free of anything that could be considered an irritant. Most of the botanical ingredients are organic and everything has a role. I'll say that again: there are no fillers. Not one. Even the dominant ingredient is aloe, not water.

Indebenone, also known as hydroxydecyl ubequinone, is an antioxidant with a very good pedigree. The vitamin C is one of the more powerful and stable ones: tetrahexydecyl ascorbate. Plus there is tea and grape seed antioxidants and moisturizing sodium hyaluranate.

It goes on nice and easy. This is a light and refreshing cream that gives you a soft, healthy glow. And, best of all, it never, ever does evil. I keep going back to the ingredients list to see if I overlooked the odd paraben, but, no, Ormedics has a pure soul.

Ingredients in Ormedic Balancing Biopetide Crème

Aloe leaf extract (organic), olive fruit oil (organic), apricot kernal oil, hydroxydecyl ubequinone, glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, shea butter (organic), tea (organic), chamomile (organic), tocopherol (vitamin E), mango seed butter, clover extract, grape seed, cucumber extract, tetrahexydecyl ascorbate, xantham gum, allantoin, ascorbyl palmitate.

    I got a few samples of this cream at a local medspa. Took me awhile to use it and the faint colada smell wasn't my favorite. But wow, my skin loves this. This is an exceptional skin cream. Light, fluffy rich, sinks right in and the skin looks great. I use a sunblock over it. I'm looking for cheaper alternatives since paying $40 per oz is not my thing. But I'll probably cave in.

    I was so excited to stumble across this site last week that I went a bit mad and ordered most of the products that were given the thumbs up. In my enthusiasm I didn't think that maybe some of them do the same thing and I should perhaps try them one at a time. I wonder if somebody could explain to me (1) what I use when and do any of them work well if used together and (2) do I need a night cream to put on top of them?
    I have just bought:
    Ormedic Balancing Bio Peptide Cream
    Image Ageless Anti-Aging Serum
    Arcona Peptide Firming Complex
    Bellaplex Skin Enhance
    (Dermapril Sp "free sample" which I will be returning)
    Thanks to all of you for such a genius site.
