Multivitamin Power Firm contains mostly silicones, thickeners, vitamin E, vitamin A, antioxidants, anti-irritant, plant oils, plant extracts, and vitamin C. It’s a good antioxidant serum for all skin types, but has no special benefit (and is not emollient enough) for the lips. Lips will feel silkier and smoother with this serum on them, but they will not be firmer (but you may get a slight filling benefit if you’re concerned about vertical lines on the lips). As for the eye area, the flavor this product contains isn’t what you want to be using so close to the eyes.

Organic silicones prevent moisture loss and strengthen skin while green tea leaf extract provides exceptional antioxidant protection.

Brand Overview

Dermalogica At-A-Glance

According to company history, Dermalogica products came into being because founder Jane Wurwand could not find a spa-oriented skin-care line that met her criteria. She was dismayed that so many skincare lines aimed at the aesthetics market had products that contained alcohol, artificial colors, fragrance, mineral oil, and lanolin, ingredients he believed had a well-documented history of problems. That's true for fragrance and alcohol (and artificial colors to a lesser extent), but mineral oil and lanolin have no documented history of causing skin problems.

The line is positioned as a no-nonsense, no frills take on skincare, with clinically-inspired packaging that does protect its beneficial ingredients from light and air. Speaking of ingredients, Dermalogica does include a lot of beneficial ones in its skincare, though there are a number of formulas in the line that also make the misstep of including potentially-irritating fragrance ingredients.
