I’m always game to try out new skincare products. Over the years I’ve tested out a lot of different skincare products from budget to high end trying to find a brand and routine my skin really enjoys. I’m also a huge fan of brands that have taken time to research their products and create effective and high quality skincare. So I was intrigued to try out Colbert MD Skincare.

Colbert MD is a brand I’ve always been really interested in and I recently had the chance to try a few pieces from their skincare line. With skincare I always think it’s difficult to tell whether it works or not so I have been road testing these products for around 3 weeks and I can safely say that it is very good quality skincare.

Colbert MD is a range created by Dr David Colbert who is a dermatologist. His signature treatment is the Triad Facial which is recognised  as one of the most effective skin renewal treatments used in the cosmetic industry and has many loyal fans. His skincare line uses the Triad Delivery System (TDS) that maintains the ingredient’s potency and activity and which delivers nutrients to a dermal level.

Colbert Illumino Anti-Aging Brightening Masks

I was sent three products to road test and the first thing I was really excited to try was the sheet masks. Sheet masks have definitely become big news recently and more and more brands are coming out with their own versions. I know when it comes to skincare you have to be patient but I find these sheet masks to be pretty effective; you can see an instant result just after one use.


The Colbert Illumino Anti aging Brightening Mask helps to rejuvenate damaged, tired skin, reduce dark spots and skin imperfections, stimulates skin cell renewal and regenerates the skin.

It’s definitely a lot of claims and unfortunately I only got sent two so it’s hard to judge long term benefits. However, I’ve used one per week and I can see the results almost instantly.

Upon opening the sheet mask it contains two pieces of plastic protecting the sheet mask and it contains enough liquid to soak the mask. I applied the mask and left it on for around 20-30 minutes before it started drying up. On removal my skin was left feeling supple and instantly brighter.

Colbert Illumino Anti-Aging Brightening Masks Ingredients– Niacinamide- Infuses skin pigmentation, down regulating melanin production (which forms dark spots and hyper-pigmentation). Hyaluronic Acid- increases hydration and improves skin’s elasticity. Symcalmin- helps to calm the skin and reduce blotchiness on skin.

Tone Control face Discs

Now these are something I’ve been interested in for a while. These Tone Control Facial Discs come in a pack of 20 and what I really like about them is that they are individually packed so you can take a few away for the weekend or an overnight stay.

I’ve been using these twice a week and they feel really refreshing to use. The pads are soaked with skinbright TDS which is highly effective at lightening dark spots and evening out the skin. To use, massage them in circular motions for 30-60 seconds over the skin; this gives a gentle exfoliation. I like reaching for these pads on days where I just want a quick exfoliation as a quick fix pre-makeup as it gives the skin a beautiful glow. These are definitely a pricey item but the results are really effective and probably the best facial pads I have tried.IMG_2451

Tone Control face Discs Ingredients– Environmental protective complex, a trio of defences against environmental stressors, protects skin from UV damage and replenishes fatty acids. Phytomoist Qusome which is 400 times as moisturizing as Sodium Hyluronate.

Illumino Facial Oil

I love a good facial oil. I have tried a handful in the past year or so and definitely have some firm favourites. This oil is super luxurious and I’ve been using this in my routine maybe two to three times a week and it always leaves my skin feeling soft and nourished. I usually go ahead and use this at night but it definitely works well in the morning too. Following its use makeup goes on smoothly leaving skin looking luminous and dewy.

I really like the scent of this oil too, it contains Passion Fruit Oil which improves skin’s elasticity and acts as an anti-oxidant. The oil feels super luxurious upon application and I usually go ahead and take one pump and really work it into my skin massaging it in circular motions. If you a fan of facial oils then this is a must have.

Illumino Facial Oil Ingredients– Borage seed oil- a rich source of gamma linoleic acid which helps cell repair+improves skin texture and tone. Yangu Oil improves skin suppleness+elasticity. Marula Oil- infused with oleic acid which aids with hydration. Argan oil which is deeply penetrating and highly rich in anti-oxidant in Vitamin E.

Overall I am super impressed with Colbert MD skincare. It is a pricey line, don’t get me wrong, but if you are after a high efficiency skincare range then this is definitely a great option with high quality products. I’m so happy with all the products I’ve tried and my skin has definitely never looked better. I have less enlarged pores and the texture has also improved. I’ve also found that you can see results almost instantly which is definitely what you get from high quality skincare.
