Beautederm – My 3-Day Skin Care Review


About 4 days ago I posted a video of my reveal of the package I got from Skin and Beyond by Beautederm.  They are the Beautederm Skin Line distributor based in Butuan City, Philippines.  My friend, Ms. Sylvia Sanchez, the Brand Ambassador for Beautederm, hooked me with Ms. Agnes Gogo, the proprietor of Skin and Beyond by Beautederm.

Now, I’ve been using my Beautederm products for 3 days and what can I say so far?

  1. I am beginning to feel a little bit of the prickly sensation around the skin of my nose, but this is to be expected they say. The brochure says this is the toner starting to work on your skin.   But otherwise, no adverse effects whatsoever on my skin.  No itching, no drying, no rashes – a good sign.
  2. The creams are not sticky and my skin absorbs them with no problems at all. It didn’t take much wait time for the absorption to happen.
  3. There is no strong scent, which is actually good because I get sneezy and irritated with very strong perfumes and odors.
  4. I can feel a little tightening of my skin, which for me means that the skincare ingredients are holding on to my skin.  That’s something I like.

So far, so good.

I was doing videos of my skin care for the past 2 days to chronicle my skin improvements, but the videos didn’t pass my standards so I’m planning on doing a better one.   So instead of giving you all a video update, let me just tell you what was in the package I got and what else I found out about the products.

The four Beautederm Sets

I ordered their Premium Set. This is good for 4 months. The Premium Set includes:

  • Two (2) 150g Papaine Soap
  • 120ml Day & Night Toner
  • Day Cream – 50g
  • First Night Cream (1) – 50g
  • Second Night Cream (2) – 50g
  • Third Night Cream (3) – 50g
The cool Facial Wash that I like using

I also ordered these skin care products to supplement the main set:

  • Back to Bare makeup remover. I know that I do full make-ups often so I need a good make-up remover.
  • Facial Wash with pump. I wanted to augment the papaine soap with a facial wash because I’ve been habitually doing a duo-cleaning even back when I was doing my korean skin care routine.
  • CC Cream in beige. The CC cream is to make sure that my foundation won’t clash with my other Beautederm lineup ingredients.
  • Bleaching Lotion. I am almost out of the papaya lotion I bought the last I was home in the Philippines.
  • Undereye Whitening Cream. The skin under my eye is something I worry about a lot that’s why I bought the undereye cream.

Just in case, people would ask, I ordered extra 3 Regular Sets (1 Papaine Soap, 60ml Day & Night Toner, 20g each of the 4 creams) and 5 Trial Sets (1 Papaine Soap, 60ml Day & Night Toner, 10gm each of the 4 creams).

So what really made the cut for me?

Beautederm is FDA Philippines-approved.  Which means, it passed the scrutiny, analysis and tests of medical and laboratory experts to say that it is safe and pure to use and its production is regulated by an official agency of the Philippine Government.  This to me is the most important thing.  I wouldn’t want to use anything that was just made in an outhouse somewhere in the middle of China.  I have to be sure that the government backs the ingredients used by the product.

Secondly, I have seen many testimonials on the net from independent bloggers and users.  I spent almost one whole afternoon just watching youtube videos and reading blogs about it.  There are some who have been using the product for some time now and they attested to the big improvements on their skin.  If you have that much voluntary testimonies how can you not believe?  Plus, the biggest of all endorsers is of course, Sylvia.  I definitely am getting more convinced.  (But where can I find this product here in the US?)

The one that really brought it home, tho, was my new friend, Lourdes.  Lourdes, or Des as we call her, and I are part of a small dance group invited to perform in parties.  When I first met her I’ve already noticed her skin.  She didn’t wear that much make up, in fact during dance rehearsals, you can see that she wears none at all.  But her face was glowing, her cheeks were pinkish and she has no blemishes wherever.  One night after practice we ended up chatting.  I had to ask her what gives? She revealed that her secret was Beautederm.

Beautederm?  In my head I was thinking “so Beautederm does this???  So the product works???”  My skin care routine can’t even give me that extra-shiny glowy skin.  I know people say I don’t look my age and I don’t have that much wrinkles, thanks to my old skin care, but it never gave me that glow which I sought after so much.

Talking with Des that same night I also mentioned that “the” Sylvia Sanchez has been telling me about these products. Des instructed me to go back to her and ask if there was a way I can distribute the products here in Maryland because there are women who are wondering where to buy Beautederm (btw, she gets hers from California).  And the rest of the story you already know.

And so I’m really hopeful about this product.  In fact, I have to admit my expectations are high.  In hindsight, I have a feeling I won’t be disappointed.  I know that my skin is not what it used to be.  I am, admittedly, in my middle age and the elasticity and suppleness of my skin is not what it used to be.  The wrinkles are starting to creep in, I am aware of that.  But I refused to have those yet!  The 50s are the new 30s I heard a celebrity say.  So I am not giving in to aging just yet.  And you shouldn’t either.

So keep in touch with me.  I have more wonderful blog entries about skin care for all of you, my dear 50-something sisters!  Stay tuned.  And until my next entry, keep safe!

    • it actually depends on how old the user will be. If she’s in her pre-teens (before 13), I would probably not recommend it. For someone in her teens – around 15-18, I could probably recommend it, as long as her skin isn’t sensitive. If she is, i’d go and do a skin test first before doing anything.

  • Hi. I was really impressed upon watching/reading all the reviews. I’m in my early 50’s now. Which set would you recommend that would best fits me?

    • Hi Joanna! I would recommend either the trial set or the regular set. The trial set, if you feel like your skin is on the sensitive side (altho I have a friend who has really sensitive skin and she swears that Beautederm does wonders for her and her skin loves it!). If you’re like me and you’re skin is not very sensitive, I’d go and jump with the regular or the premium set! A more economical move since the premium set would last you about 4 months and the regular set is good for 2 months. The trial set is good for 1 month.

      I would also recommend the undereye whitening cream. It diminishes the lines and the puffiness of one’s eyebags. Being in my 50s myself. This helps me a lot!

  • Hi. I have a question about the toner. Is it safe to use on a daily basis? Can I use it continuously even after ma-achieve yung glowing skin or dapat bawasan yung frequency? Let us say, for example, from am & pm daily to once a day or thrice a week. I’m worried kase na di advisable for daily use and pang matagalan since medjo matapang yung toner. Hope you could answer my query. Thanks in advance po!

    • Toners are used to prepare your skin for your next beauty regimen steps. Washing the face takes out all the dirt your face has collected (yes, even at night) but it also takes away the nutrients you gave it with the creams you use. So to prepare your skin again, you use your toner. It also micropeels and refreshes your skin. You will always feel a little tightening of the skin with the toner kasi nga the toner helps in bringing the youthfulness of your skin.

      Just make sure to apply your creams after and the toner and you should be fine. Or if you really are concerned, you can just use the toner once a day, at night after you’ve cleanse your face of the day’s toxins.

      Thank you for your comment!!

  • No drying no itching no rashes ma e experience po ba? Kc i am using Skin Magical it does work, pro prang ang daling mag rashes ng face ko at ng neck ko nag ra rashes din

    • Hi Ynah. Definitely, no rashes and itching! I suggest you might want to discontinue using a product that gives you rashes. Baka may ingredients na hindi angkop sa iyo. With Beautederm, I have not experienced any of that. I have a friend who was very sensitive and I made her apply the product one per day just on the side of her jaw to test first kung magkakaroon sya ng allergic reaction. She didnt experience any for the duration of her tests. You might want to try that eith beautederm also. 🙂

  • Hi! Ms Gigi,

    Yung toner nag ccause din ng peeling sa skin mo? 2 days after using kasi nag start ng mag peel ang skin ko, medyu prickly lang din pero tolerable naman..

    thanks!
    Andeng

    • Yes, Andeng. It’s the toner that does the micro-peeling and stingy. But I’ve tried some other beauty products before, ganun sila talaga. Pero just continue to use it. You will really see wonders in just a month of using it 🙂 I’m on my way to my 3rd month and it’s still working really well 🙂

      Thank you for your comment!

  • Hi, may salicylic acid and retinol po ba mga products niyo and paraben? Im pregnant and i want to use skin care products that is/are safe to use for me and my baby. Thank you!

    • Hi Kate,

      Beautederm is a Superbrand and FDA-Approved! There is no salicylic acid nor retinol ingredients in any of the products. Kung wala pang 3 months ang pregnancy mo, we recommend NOT using the products yet because of the hormonal changes na you’re undergoing. Pero after the first trimester, pwede na. 🙂 But to also make sure, please ask your OB/Gyne kasi mas kita nya ang actual health condition mo 🙂 Thank you and congratulations on your upcoming baby!

    • Hi Irene,

      Using Beautederm will change your life! But of course, no pain, no gain before you get that beautiful skin. At first, you MAY experience micropeeling and some even experience a slight darkening of the skin. But this happens kasi sine-scale off ng Beautederm ang old skin mo to come up with that glowy smooth skin. It has to take off all the impurities that your skin has gotten all these years. You will also experience some sting kasi nga pini-peel off nya ang impurities ng skin mo. But all these will not erase the fact na in as little as 1 week, you will already see changes in your face. In a month’s use, your skin will glow and you will slowly see it whiten.

      Don’t be scared to use it! In a few days of use, Beautederm will be your bestfriend!

  • Ok lang po ba if i’ll stop using it po if satisfied na ako sa effect ng products po? Wala po bang bad effects na mangyayari sa skin ko? Kasi po mostly sa rejuvenating products na nasearch ko po is mas dumadami daw po ang pimples nila if they stop using the products daw po. At umiitim din daw po ang mukha nila. Hope you’ll reply po. Thank you.

    • Hi Suffy! Walang adverse effect kung ititigil mo ang pag-gamit. Pero siempre, just like any other regimen, if you discontinue to take care of your skin, sooner or later, maglalabasan na naman yung mga blemishes and signs of aging. (Altho with Beautederm, hindi naman magdodoble than before you were using it.) The good news is, with Beautederm, you can come back and do it all over again without any problem.

      Yung pag-darken ng skin, it’s natural. Beautederm has whitening agents. If you stop using it and continue to expose yourself sa sun, of course, magdadarken ang skin – babalik sya to what it was before you used Beautederm.

      Taking care of your skin is a lifetime commitment. Why? Because taking care of your body as a whole is a lifetime commitment 🙂

  • Great read, Miss Gigi! I’m planning to get this for my turning 70 year old mom who resides in BXU as well. She actually looks younger than her actual age due to her daily skin care routine since time immemorial (some don’t even expect that she’s already a senior citizen). However, we also can’t stop gravity from pulling down those stuff from her face so I’m quite excited to have her try this beauty line after her current beauty regimen is finished.

    Currently, she’s more into serums (hyaluronic, argireline, collagen) to correct her wrinkles, caffeine + EGCG to reduce the puffiness of her eyebags, and beauty gadgets like RF and tightening machines to aid in the production of more collagen. She also takes collagen liquid drinks nightly. Expensive but beauty has a price as they say.

    My sister also uses Beautederm line and I can really see the effects, although she aids it with regular using of RF machine too.

    • My greatest admiration for your mom for really taking care of herself. I am sure that she has been living gracefully not just on your regimen but her whole attitude in reaching her age. Same to your sister. Yes, beautederm products do help so much in defying the signs of aging. For someone like your mom and sister, they will appreciate the wonders of the products. Let me know if you need inquiries on where to purchase the beautederm skin line 🙂

  • Tanong ko lang im currently using the Beautederm kaya lang nangangati leeg ko pero sa face ok naman sya. Ano pwedeng gawin.

    • Hi Melanie, you are probably having a slight reaction to the toner. I would suggest to refrain from using the toner on your neck. Yung soap and creams lang ang gamitin mo. Let your skin on the neck rest from the toner and then after a week, subukan mo ulet. 🙂
