It’s been a year (give or take a few days) since I first tried some of pHisoderm’s product line.
I was quite impressed.
I recently acquired their new skincare three-step system-The kit, launched in September 2007, retails for $19.97 (Very reasonable; most department store brands can start at $40 and up. The sleek new packaging really catches the eye with an inviting mint green shade-the bottles and containers also have a brown top, which complements this color) and includes pHisoderm’s Foaming Facial Wash, Nurturing Toner, and Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15. Now these products are still available individually. And individually, they’re excellent, but as a trio, they’re a force to be reckoned with!
I became impressed all over again.
And here’s why:
Starting with the Foaming Facial Wash (after gently wetting my face; I suggest you do this first for maximum results), I found it very quick and easy to use, with an abundance of fresh-scented hypoallergenic cleanser that provided plenty of lather from the pump bottle. The key ingredient is skin humectant or for those of you who are scientifically inclined, polyglutamic acid (Doesn’t the first one sound more important, though?).
My skin felt SO clean and moisturized. It was a good feeling, let me tell you; you’ll actually look forward to washing your face! (It’s recommended that you use this twice daily, but if you don’t have the time, I would personally strive for once daily in the evening.) The Facial Wash can be used by all skin types and retails for $6.99 along with dermaroller amazon.
The Nurturing Toner was a sensory delight, for my face absolutely tingled upon applying.
The toner gently cleanses your mug to remove excess makeup, dirt residue, oil, and dead skin cells, while also hydrating with nutrients (retails for $6.99).
My skin felt very refreshed and stayed that way all evening. And that heavenly smell is to die for!
This contains hyaluronic acid, which is an effective moisturizing agent.
Did you know that you can also use this to help prevent blemishes? You do now.
The Daily Moisturizer (with SPF 15) can indeed be used everyday. Why?
Because it works! It’s also oil-free, lightweight, and provides overall sun protection, blocking the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays without clogging pores. If that doesn’t impress you, maybe this will:
This moisturizer has vitamins C and E, helps promote collagen formation, improves skin elasticity, nurtures and hydrates the skin, all while still maintaining the pH level (Impressed the heck out of me!).
And again, there’s that fabulous smell. The price is $7.69.

Softlips, the world-renowned lip balm company, now has two new flavors (limited editions, however) that are perfect as stocking stuffers or for yourself. They are Sugar Cookie and Winter Mint. I have these two, and I love them! The scents are delicious; I particularly crazy about the Sugar Cookie one. Have you ever tried to sniff your lips all day? You will, when you try these! On the healthy side, there are also moisturizing ingredients to prevent chapped lips and offer SPF 20 protection.
Each new flavor is paired with a Softlips favorite- Sugar Cookie comes with Cherry, and Winter Mint with Vanilla (another to-die-for scent!). Each pack is $3.99 each.
There’s also the new Soflips Tints, available in Rose and Bronze. I have this too. They add a subtle touch of color to your lips and there’s a wildberry flavor to them. These tints complement most skin complexions, so don’t worry about which one to buy. Get them both; I did! (It’s $3.00 per item. They DO last for a quite a while.)
