A highly effective hydrating serum


Works for dry and sensitive skin



By Meg

I have sensitive and very dry skin and I am always looking out for a moisturizer that can be truly effective while to causing any reactions or breakouts. Mostly, this quest has been unsuccessful. Until…. I tried Transderma M Moisturizing Serum ($175).

Unlike almost every moisturizer that I have tried, Transderma M Moisturizing Serum is not a cream. It is a clear liquid with almost no scent. It is so light and rapidly absorbing that I couldn’t imagine that it would actually hydrate my skin. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Almost instantly, my mid-40s skin looked a little more supple. But the real impact came three days later.

Using this moisturizing serum twice a day, with only a few days, stubborn flakey patches near my chin and on my forehead started to clear up. Now a month into my test, they are long gone and showing no signs of returning. I dabbed a little on my finger nails, which are so dry that they are ridged. With only three applications, my nails are pink and smooth. I am delighted.

I really love that this is not a rich cream. Apart from noticing that my skin is softer, I would not know that I was wearing anything. This is a big bonus in the hotter months.

Transderma says that M is based on “ceramides and lipids identical to those found in human skin”. The main ingredient is squalane, which Truth In Aging says can permeate into the skin at a rate of 2 mm/second. Squalane is an antioxidant, prevents UV damage and the formation of age spots and promotes cell growth. There are two types of ceramides, a lipid that keeps your skin hydrated and plump and phytosphingosine, these are also lipids and a phospholipid, that attracts and holds on to moisture.

These ingredients may explain why I noticed that my very dry skin is now nicely hydrated, but I’ve also seen some plumping around my fine lines. I’ve also read about how Transderma doesn’t formulate with water or preservatives and this maximizes that concentration of actives used. I’ll definitely be looking at other products in the Transderma line.
