I am constantly on the hunt for a daily moisturizer that I can use every morning after cleansing that will actually prevent redness from the sun and keep me hydrating without having me look like a greaseball. I have combination skin so most moisturizers with SPF leave my T-zone looking like a griddle by noon. I have been waiting to do a review on Dermaxsol since I have been hearing such good things about it to see if this is finally my holy grail moisturizer I’ve been looking for.
Dermaxsol is a daily moisturizer that offers hydration and UVA/UVB protection with every application. The company Solvaderm promises only the highest quality pharmaceutical grade products they have created through extensive testing in their labs. They even give a bibliography of scientific reports that support their products on their web page! How crazy is that?They offer a consultation on their site, so it might be best to take advantage of that so they can match you with a comprehensive skin care system. All of their products have 60-day money back guarantee and can be used on all skin types dry to oily, 20 – 100. Dermaxsol is specifcally meant to be a daily moisturizer that provides sun protection while locking in moisture to keep you feeling supple and smooth throughout your years. The formula is waterproof and can be applied underneath makeup.
Let’s get into the nitty gritty…

Would I repurchase?
Absolutely, I think this product is “the one”, if you know what I mean. I could see myself using it consistently every single day. My liquid foundation goes right over it super smooth, I don’t get that melty look at all. My skin has been so supple and smooth. Since I am on the younger side I can’t say it is make me look youthful, but I am hoping it can prevent some of the harmful effects the sun can have on skin. I use it on my chest and neck too. Once I priced out other brands, I found that this one isn’t really as expensive as I normally thought as a drug store junky. I would totally buy and buy again.
