This moisturizer is an embarrassment when you review the claims and realize that such nonsense is coming from dermatologist, Dr. Audrey Kunin. Does she really believe that this blend of thickeners, silicones, and a few skin-identical ingredients is a smart alternative for those who want to avoid dermal fillers? I’m sure Kunin knows it can’t, but lots of women are going to be seduced by the claims and the doctor pedigree.

Yes, this can temporarily plump up lines, but so can most moisturizers, and many for far less money and with far better (really, really better) formulations. When you add up the sum of its parts—the price, rather boring formula, lack of antioxidants, and jar packaging, which means the few good ingredients won’t remain stable—this is a moisturizer to avoid.

Temporarily plumps up wrinkles, acne scars and skin creases. Results last for about 24 hours. Can also be used on the backs of hands, making then appear less "veiny." Needle-free solution for those looking to avoid injectable fillers.

Water, Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Dipalmitate, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone Copolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hyaluronic Acid, Fulvic Acid, Sodium Pca, Poly Lactide-Coglycolide (Nanospheres), Ethoxydiglycol, Peg-150 Distearate, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Potassium Sorbate, Benzoic Acid

The DERMAdoctor line is the brainchild of Kansas City-based dermatologist Dr. Audrey Kunin. Dr. Kunin's Web site retails not only the DERMAdoctor brand but several products from other brands, many of which have ties to specific dermatologic concerns (everything from athlete's foot to warts). Many of these specialty products are available from your local drugstore, but Kunin's site provides helpful, mostly reliable information concerning various skin-care concerns.

We wish her own products followed the strength of her advice, but alas, most do not. This is another dermatologist-developed line with plenty of products whose names and claims make you think they're a cosmetic corrective procedure in a bottle (or, in some cases, a jar, which is never a good packaging move). There are some products to pay attention to, though whether you want to strongly consider them or not comes down to how much you feel comfortable spending (DERMAdoctor products aren't cheap).

DERMAdoctor isn't exactly "your prescription for beautiful skin" but Dr. Kunin gets enough right that her line isn't one to gloss over, particularly if you're shopping for sunscreens, AHA products, and facial cleansers. Those with acne should look elsewhere, because DERMAdoctor's products don't have the solution, despite their cute product names.
