I'll try anything once...and buy what works

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Dermajuv Skin Care Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

I'm at that awkward age. With an awkward skin type. Or awkward hormones. Or whatever it is, I get to deal with the beginnings of wrinkles (maybe a wee bit more than beginnings....) as well as acne (which decided to reemerge with a vengeance after giving me a decidedly easy time of it during adolescence). As a result of this brilliant joke by Mother Nature on me, the skin care products industry is reaping the rewards.

I'm not completely random about it though. I try a lot of different products, but I generally refuse to shell out the big bucks if I haven't at least had the opportunity to try it. However, if I have had the opportunity to try something, and it seems to offer some improvement, I will absolutely lay out the cash for it. (Little tip to the marketers, those sample packs WORK for selling your product if your product WORKS). And if I find something I love, I'll recommend it. I've done it often, and it's resulted in sales not only to me, but to family and friends as well.

We seem to have reached a curious point in our society when the trends for beauty products like wrinkle reducers and acne controllers have oddly gone off in two wildly divergent directions - "latest scientific breakthrough" and "all the wonders of nature's own ingredients." And both trends seem to be successful - often marketing successfully even to the same women.

I came across this line of skin care products called Dermajuv (not to be confused with Juvaderm) touting all-natural ingredients (and no animal testing) with very high-tech looking packaging.


The product descriptions are certainly promising, and it's got some pretty high-profile positive reviews. I have to admit, I'm intrigued and interested, but the price range is a little beyond me. Now if I could try it and find that it actually works, I'd be breaking out my credit card.
