8 Hour Cream
*This is the "balm" that started it all. Long before any other beauty brand thought to address the "multi-purpose" mantra, 8 Hour Cream was there to salvage serious skin irritation, soften the most stubborn calluses, cure catastrophic cuticles and comfort even the most cracked and weather beaten lips. It's STILL a must have in the pro makeup kit.
HYALURONIC EMULSION WITH VITAMIN C
*This little bottle of liquid salvation is a super speedy skin saving serum (say that 3x fast) that combats dehydration and dullness. Intensely moisturizing hyaluronic acid and concentrated active ingredients like antioxidant vitamin C and algae allow this lightweight serum to restore skin's natural moisture levels and improve clarity and brightness - at a VERY wallet friendly price.

viz 1000 Serum
*This serum’s 75% hyaluronic acid complex attracts 1000 times its weight in water from moisture in the air. Sodium PCA binds this surge of moisture to the skin while a blend of mucopolysaccarides (sugar derivatives) trap it in place. This serum keeps skin super hydrated even in the DRYEST conditions (like an airplane cabin, 4+ hours into flight). As if that wasn't enough, this overachiever also contains emollient honey, nutrient rich algea and mineral silica to smooth and silken surface texture. Can you say SUPER SERUM (three times fast…I dare you)!
INTENSITÉ™ MOISTURE SERUM EXTRÊME
*Severely dehydrated skin has no where to hide (neither does your bank account). I'm not going to sugarcoat this, the stuff is uber-expensive …but the immediate results (and gratification) are staggering. As soon as you apply the serum, skin’s moisture barrier is strengthened (thanks to some serious peptides), moisture levels are boosted to the stratosphere, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are minimized - VISIBLY. I have witnessed this stuff turn skin that looked like parchment paper (not pretty) into soft, dewyness. It's all about the legendary RéVive® glow!
Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler
*Let me tell you, Kiehl’s Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler brings instant gratification to a new level. It actually fills in fine lines so you look smoother, NOW …while serious anti-aging ingredients work in the background to repair skin and remove the offensive etchings from your gorgeous veneer for good. Just think of the gratitude (and large tips) you’ll receive from those “mature’ divas that sit in your makeup chair after they see how you ironed them out!
I want an industrial size barrel of the stuff so I can jump in – head first.
Hydrating B5 Gel
*Vitamin B5 is recognized for it's ability to activate and speed up tissue repair. This is great to know when you have someone sit in your makeup chair with irritated skin (enviormental stress, allergic reaction, etc.). The Hydrating B5 Gel replenishes nutrients the skin needs to feel smooth and comfortable - FAST! The gel also contains a healthy dose of hyaluronic acid (just like the PTR viz-1000), so it will address moisture levels while it repairs.
*Lusciously luminous and silky smooth - no wonder they call this stuff the Red Carpet Rescue Serum. It puts skin moisture in lock-down mode and leaves behind a totally touchable finish thanks to a potent cocktail of smoothing silicone, potent antioxidents and just a touch of Retinol to help repair those pesky fine lines.
So let's break it down....an immeditate Glam Glow, hyper-hydration and some line reducing cummulative effects as a bonus? Ding, ding, ding...we have a WINNER!.
*Prepping "mature" skin with a lack of firmness is definitely a challenge. This silky serum tightens up the loosey-goosey's in a flash by infusing high levels of DMAE into the skin to firm and tone, while softening the appearance of fine lines almost immediately. It's also packed with Phospholipids to boost hydration. Firm, well moisturized skin is the best canvas for beautiful makeup applications and Serum Prep delivers.
Rosaliac Anti-Redness Moisturizer
*Rosacea is a skin condition characterised by a rough texture, excessive reddness and extreme sensitivity that is easily aggravated by evironmental stress and pollution. This form of 'adult acne' is a common occurance and needs to be addressed for makeup to look it's best. This weightless, light green tinted formula relieves irritation and helps neutralize redness. It cushions the skin for more comfortable makeup application and helps it remain calm through the day.
Med E Tate
*Working in a hot, humid environment and worried about a makeup meltdown? Or is your talent worried that her body will turn up the internal heat due to some pesky 'changes' (menopause)? Relax, DERMAdoctor has it covered. Each individually wrapped MED e TATE wipe uses a patent pending formulation of technologically advanced antiperspirant ingredients blended with botanical extracts to control hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) without irritation. You may lose your cool but these precious packets will make sure they never see you sweat!
Organic Aloe Vera
*Surprised to see this as a problem solver? Well don't be.
Aloe Vera has been recognized for it's super soothing/healing benefits for centuries. No matter what irritation your faced with, a dose of pure aloe will calm it down quickly. We prefer the organic version (a tea colored liquid) to the 'green-goopy' stuff sold in the suncare aisle of the drugstore (which is usually full of chemical fillers). The company that produces the product pictured to the left (Aubrey Organics) is a great organic, vegan resource for many skincare products.
