Gly Derm offers an array of products and is known for its main ingredient, which is glycolic acid. Glycolic acid is used to produce beautifying effects for the user’s skin and it is derived from the sugar cane plant. Gly Derm claims that all of the products in this line are hypo-allergenic and “free from harmful agents”. Gly Derm says that all of its products have been clinically tested by dermatologists and are preferred among many leading dermatology and plastic surgery centers. The Gly Derm Hydrotone moisturizer is wax-based and it is designed for extremely dry or mature skin. It is used to seal in the skin’s natural moisture to reveal a healthier layer of skin.

Product Details

Gly Derm Hydrotone comes in two versions: Lite and Max. Gly Derm Hydrotone Lite is better when used in the morning before a makeup application. Gly Derm Hydrotone Max is better when used in the evening, after the face has been cleansed and exfoliated before the user goes to sleep.

Gly Derm Hydrotone Max’s full list of ingredients are as follows: Purified Water, Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Isopropyl Palmitate, Citric Alcohols, Green Tea Extract, Soy Protein, Rose Hips Extract, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea, Propylparaben.

Gly Derm Hydrotone Lite’s full list of ingredients are as follows: Purified Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, PPG-11 Steryl Ether, Linoleamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Dimethicone, Isopropyl Palmitate, Green Tea Extract, Soy Protein, Rose Hips Extract, Citric Alcohols, Propylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

The Good

  • Gly Derm products have a good reputation and have several favorable reviews on a variety of websites.
  • Gly Derm Hydrotone products are widely available and are reasonably priced.

The Bad

  • Gly Derm Hydrotone does not have any proven anti-aging ingredients that we could discover.
  • Gly Derm Hydrotone Max contains petrolatum and mineral oil, so it is not the best choice for acne-prone skin.
  • The official website for Gly Derm does not contain product information, scientific data, or clinical trial results to substantiate product claims.
  • Overall, this product appears to be more of a moisturizer than a wrinkle fighter.

The Bottom Line

If you are looking for a heavy moisturizing cream for your extremely dry or mature skin, Gly Derm Hydrotone Lite or Gly Derm Hydrotone Max could be for you. These are unlike a lot of moisturizers on the market because they are wax-based. Hydrotone Lite can be used on a wider variety of skin types while the Hydrotone Max can only be used on skin that is not oily or acne-prone. The product does have many favorable reviews and seems to be highly moisturizing and has shown improvements to the skin with daily use. We could not find specific information related to clinical trials of Gly Derm products, including Gly Derm Hydrotone moisturizer. Most consumer reviews say that it is a good, general overall moisturizer but you should not expect it to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines associated with aging.

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2015: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go


(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go
