MD Formulations is a skin care line that has been around for over 20 years now. This cosmetic company claims to combine beauty with scientific research in order to create skin care treatments that address common skin dilemmas such as aging, problematic/acne prone complexions, sensitive skin, fine lines, rough patches and dry skin. While MD Formulations develops products for general consumers to use at home, they additionally provide skin care treatments that are only to be used and offered by professionals in spas.

As seen on the official website, MD Formulations has created products geared toward all basic skin types such as oily, dry, combination, sensitive and problem-prone complexions. MD Formulations offers facial cleansers, moisturizers, “corrector products,” sunscreens, “special care products,” body treatments and a men’s line of shaving and face care products. This cosmetic line commonly incorporates active ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids (primarily glycolic acid), which aim to assist with redundant skin issues ranging from hyperpigmentation, to sun damage, to acne, to fine lines, to severe dryness, to wrinkles and the removal of dead skin cells. MD Formulations endeavor to assist a wide range of consumers in achieving younger and healthier and complexions.

Product Details

MD Formulations is essentially a skin care line of facial treatments and body products that aim to assist users with typical skin afflictions such as sun-damaged complexions, dry skin, rosacea, acne, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and skin cell buildup. These products are available for all skin types and geared toward men and women alike. The primary component (active ingredient) found in MD Formulations is glycolic acid, along with other alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).

The Good

  • The official MD Formulations website offers all products available through the web.
  • MD Formulations provides ingredient lists for their products on the website.
  • The products contain moisturizers.
  • Some MD Formulations treatments contain sunscreens.

The Bad

  • MD Formulations products do contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which may cause redness, dryness and/or irritation for some users.
  • There is no money-back guarantee via the official website.
  • There is no substantial clinical proof offered on the website that MD Formulations will benefit your skin.
  • MD Formulations require numerous steps, which could prove tedious and time-consuming for some users.

The Bottom Line

All in all, MD Formulations is a skin care line that claims to address most common skin dilemmas that are grappled with on a regular basis by various individuals with different skin types. While the official MD Formulations website does offer ample information regarding their skin products and treatments, some consumers might prefer to see a few discounts and doctor recommendations via their website. Although most MD Formulations products appear to run a tad higher than several other brands (generally between 20 and 100 dollars, with a lip balm selling for $12) it would also be nice to see some coupons, deals and discounts on the official website. Also, if eliminating wrinkles is really your primary goal, you might want to explore offerings from companies that specifically target wrinkles, not a company that offers a highly diversified, general skin care line.

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
