Packaging:

As you can see from the pictures above, Derma Bright Day Cream and Night Cream come in a jar with pump dispenser. As you open the closure, you’ll see a hole at the top part. Whenever we want to take out the cream, we push that top part and the cream will come out.

Since the texture is different with the cream, Derma Bright Intensive Serum comes in a bottle without any separate closure. It’s such a good point as you won’t lose the closure.  If you turn the top part of its packaging, you’ll see the pump dispenser coming out. With this design, the serum it contains won’t get clumped easily because it’s protected from open air.

All Derma Bright products’ pump dispenser aims to support airless technology. This airless technology functions to

  1. Maintain product’s quality and efficiency because the packaging isolate the product from any contact with air.
  2. Maintain product’s hygiene by protecting from micro-organism contamination, such as by bacteria and fungi, and also from allergens like spore and dust.
  3. Make the product lasts longer.
  4. Save our money because the technology enables us to control amount of the product that we take, and also enable us to take out the product until the last drop.
  5. Keep the product environmentally-friendly, because the packaging is free from gas, harmful for the environment.

Formula and Verdict:

Derma Bright Intensive Serum’s texture is similar to light lotion. Since it isn’t much watery, I usually wait for several minutes after applying this serum so that it will be well-absorbed. Afterwards, I continue with the next step: applying the day cream or night cream.

Both the Derma Bright Day Cream SPF 25 and Derma Bright Night Cream have the same texture. The cream formula is not too thick or too light. I feel both creams to be moisturizing enough for my dry skin.

After about a month using the complete range of Derma Bright, I notice that my skin looks brighter than before. However, the complexion doesn’t change drastically, which is a good thing. If my facial skin got a lot brighter, it will look much different with the skin tone of my body. There are several dark spots in my face resulted from acne scar. After a month of using Derma Bright, the dark spots slightly get lighter but they are still apparent on my face.

As for its anti-aging benefit, I can’t tell much because as a 23 year-old, I haven’t been experiencing many signs of aging on my skin yet.

How much? Rp 138,800 for Derma Bright Day Cream or Night Cream and Rp 262,500 for Derma Bright Intensive Serum. If we want to buy the whole products of Derma Bright at one transaction, the package price is Rp 630,100.

What can be improved: Like many other skincare products, the fragrance in Derma Bright Intensive Serum, Day Cream and Night Cream is too strong. So, I think it would be nice if Derma Bright tones down its fragrance. I also hope Derma Bright would improve its efficacy in reducing dark spots, as that is one problem that I didn’t see much improvement in after a month of usage.
