    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    This is the best eye cream I've ever used with peptides, Vit C, a very gentle retinol, hyaluronic acid, and very high quality oils to protect and moisturize the delicate eye area.  See what you think!  The pseudoalteromonas extract is from the arctic marine algae naturally high in antioxidants.

    Use twice a day ....morning and night.  Use on lips too.

    I recommend for even more effect, putting the AQ growth factor eye serum underneath Eye Rescue at night.

    The goal of MadisonMD is to produce skin care products for active lifestyles, focused on wellness, skin health & beauty, at a good price point.

    Dr. Irwin's Review

    This product actually works!  I was a bit shocked because how many have I tried over the years?  It lasts hours. The funny story on this was that our amazing Operations Director gave this to her mom, who used it and then kissed a baby on the cheek.  A round area the size of her lips plumped up on his face. It didn't bother him, but maybe be careful!  :)

    Who It's For

    For all skin types.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    My personal eye cream.  Gentle and helps with early fine lines and crepeyness.  Contains hyaluronic acid, Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate), Vit E, Glycolic acid (low concentration for the eye area), a little sunscreen, and a Vitamin C ester.  It has enough low strength actives (better for the eye area) to be effective.  Results evident at 30-60 days.  I love the NeoCutis Lumerie Riche too, but I Iike to try new products and change things up sometime.

    Mid weight, hydrating and good for sensitive skin.

    Size: 0.5 fl oz.


    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Retinoids are still the gold standard in antiaging, and this is a good retinol option for UV damage.  It's gentle enough for most people to use around the eye area while giving the benefits that retinoids do - decreasing fine wrinkles, helping to control pigment, dark circles, and improving sun damage overall.

    Also contains antioxidants like green tea polyphenols and vitamin C, arnica, and a peptide.

    Use the eyelid specific sunscreen like Colorescience Total Eye if you are outdoors a lot.  And remember that wearing sunglasses really helps to protect the eye area too.

    Everyone in our office loves this product.  It goes on like a high-end lip gloss and comes in a easy to use tube with applicator.  AND....it has zinc - yay!!!  The best UV blocker on the market to protect your lips from wrinkling and shriveling up!  Has a little vitamin E and hyaluronic acid too. 

    Comes in 3 colors - rose, pink and coral. The pink is the lightest and most natural, the rose a little redder, and the coral....well coral but still light.

    Who It's For

    Ideal for those with wrinkles and sun damage on the eyelids and around the eye area.  

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    This product is great and supported by a study in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology. It contains PSP which stimulates cell activity and growth. If you like science, it is a mixture of human growth factors, cytokines and interleukins.  PSP is similar to the TNS product (see antiaging in this shop) that so many people love.   Also contains a form of hyaluronic acid which hydrates and a yam extract which plumps the thin skin around the eyes.

    How to Use

    Apply morning and night to the eyelids down to the cheek margin and include the wrinkles ("crow's feet").

    Ingredients

    Water (Aqua), C12-20 Acid PEG-8 Ester, Petrolatum, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Glycerin, Saccharide Isomerate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate / Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Butylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Isohexadecane, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Dioscorea Villosa (Wild Yam) Root Extract, Bisabolol, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, Caffeine, Processed Skin Proteins (PSP™), Disodium EDTA, Phospholipids, Glycyrrhetinic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Acrylates / C10-30 Alkylacrylate, Crosspolymer, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Hydroxide, Tocopherol, Beech Tree Bud Extract (Fagus Sylvatica Extract), Palm Oil (Elaeis Guineensis), Tocotrienols, Squalene, Phytosterols, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Polysorbate 60, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzoic Acid

     Lots of very nice actives like Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (Vit C), natural lipids for moisture retention in this dry area, peptides, antioxidants, and vitamins.  The Revision company bases are more natural than most.  This also has a little luminescence which helps to hide fine wrinkles.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Cell growth factors which improve skin cell health and activity, this product is better than TNS.  The scientist involved with these two products figured out how to use the young skin cell conditioned media, and how to concentrate it, without the cell waste products.  The cell waste products are what caused the funny odor to TNS.  This product is odor free!

    For aging prevention and repair, twice a day, morning and night, after cleansing then put your other products over it.

    The AQ Active Serum (for the face) is also great to use under your moistuizer or retinol at night.

    This is a serum and doesn't moisturize.  Use the MadisonMD Eye Rescue over it each time.

SkinTour's Philosophy:
Skincare is your best
investment
One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
