My Life Over 50: Bruises Now Have a Friend

I am sent products regularly to test and, hopefully, blog about for you.  I do think it is an important way for readers to find out what is on the market.  Today’s product was sent to me and I set it aside because at that time I had no need for it…then the above happened.  While moving somethings in the house, I smashed my hand and pretty quickily developed this nasy bruise.So, that same day I began to use the DerMend Moisturizing Bruise Formula and in a couple of days the skin on my hand looked healthy and youthful.  It treats the bruised area with ceramides, retinol, and arnica oil and helps to build a barrier of protection.  Now, it doesn’t make the bruise go away…it treats the skin in the area so it it looks better than an ugly bruise.  I am at that age where I am bruising more, so I expect to go through this tube pretty quickily. It does make your skin feel soft and healed.   If you are interested, just check it out HERE.

Keep Smiling!!

  1. That’s quite a remarkable difference. I’ll have to check this out. Thanks for trying things out and keeping us informed!

  2. Pam, I cannot believe the timing of this! I just whacked the top of my hand two days ago as I was heading out for a walk and immediately saw a little goose-egg AND bruise at the spot, in addition to it smarting like crazy! My poor husband had been waiting patiently for me to accompany him on a walk and I didn’t want to make him wait any longer so I threw a couple of ice cubes in a baggie and headed out the door. The ice did a remarkable job of getting the bump down but I still had a nasty looking bruise, exactly where yours is pictured above!!!!! So, trust me, I will be picking up some of this DerMend, cause I’ve seen my future….and it’s bruised~!!!!!!

  3. I understand Deborah…the timing was good for me as well. Unfortunately, I am discovering bruises more often.

  4. Happy to be the test lab, Karen. I have made some great discoverines doing this and I do hope it helps.

  5. We have been using Arnica gel for the past 15 years now and always bring it with us on our travels.
