“The physicians and mid-levels in our practice diagnose and treat a large population of patients with severe sun damage and easy bruising. Patients that we have instructed in the use of DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula have uniformly reported their pleasure with the prompt resolution of existing bruises and the prevention of new bruising. DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula has been a valuable and effective option for our patients as well as a treatment we can trust to incorporate in our treatment regimen.”

“I have been recommending DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula for my older patients with thin skin and chronic bruising. The early results have been very promising. Prior to DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula, there weren’t many options for patients with this type of condition. I’ve tried DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula on over a dozen patients and the response has been excellent. Not only does the bruise seem to lighten more quickly, but my patients also say that they have noticed fewer bruises since starting DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula.”

DerMend Moisturizing Anti-Itch Lotion:

Diane
My mother has been suffering from itchy skin for over 2 years now. I thought it was due to her numerous health issues. The doctor said no. I tried everything under the the sun. My mom came across an article/advertisement about DerMend. I thought, ok we can try this out even though it’s a bit pricey. I purchased your DerMend Moisturizing Skin Lotion. I put it on her after her shower thinking this lotion is so watery. Well, my mother got instant relief. I put it on her back and arms every day. She says she can finally sleep thru the night. No more itching! I must say this lotion is amazing and well worth the price. So happy she read that article and that I found it in CVS. Will continue to purchase. People should be able to see reviews on what an amazing product you have! Thank you from Mom and me too!
anti itch lotion
This lotion isn’t very thick, but it does the job. I use it after my shower and my dry skin no longer itches.
Threw Out the Back Scratcher
We have moved to a house with very hard water. Both my husband and I started to have itchy backs. Nothing seemed to help. I saw an ad for this product in “Parade” magazine one Sunday and decided to track it down. It was worth it. Now after we shower, we “cream” each other’s backs and no more itching. We wouldn’t be without it.
Dermend Moisturizing Anti-Itch Lotion
I was looking for a lotion product that would reduce or eliminate problems with itchy skin. DerMend seems to have come up with a lotion that does exactly that, reduces the irritation of the itchy skin. The first day I applied the lotion, I found good results. After several days of consistent application, the results seem to get better. I am so pleased to find relief from a very annoying problem.
Sought solution for itchy skin
I saw an ad in the Sunday paper and could not find the product in stores. I ordered it from LovelySkin. I think it is helping. It is the only product with ingredients recommended by a dermatologist.
DerMend Anti-Itch Lotion
I saw an ad for DerMend Anti-Itch Lotion in the Parade Magazine which is included in our local Sunday paper and thought I would order a bottle just to see if it would really work. I have been using a prescription skin lotion which I have been paying over $176.00 for a 4oz. bottle. I tried the DerMend Lotion and to my surprise it worked as well or better than the prescription lotion and at the low price for an 8 oz. bottle I would highly recommend this product to anyone that has an itch problem.
Dermend Moisturizing Ant-Itch Lotion Review
It works.
DerMend anti itch cream
I have been itching for about two years. I have tried all kinds of creams and lotions without much help. This cream has almost stopped the itching. It has been a blessing to me. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
nice lotion
So far, so good. I just started using the anti-itch lotion, and it works beautifully. Lotion goes on smoothly, not greasy, and my skins just drinks it up leaving it much softer feeling. At 74 years old, that’s saying something. Love it!
Pleased with Purchase
I am 85 and having many skin problems. I ordered Dermend, and I’m using it on my back and legs. Have had severe edema and a home health RN who was here yesterday reviewed the ingredients and used on healing areas and advised me to use daily. The lotion seems to help immediately. Thank you for this product.
Dermend
Love this product it really helps in the winter here! I am 71 and also diabetic, and it helps! I bought some for my mom too, (she is 96)

DerMend Moisturizing Bruise Formula Cream:

Jim N
It takes a lot for me to post a review, favorable or negative, on a website or Facebook page. That being said, I feel compelled to give a glowing report on my experience with DerMend. Ever since I turned 60 years old, I began suffering ugly embarrassing looking blood bruises under my skin, especially on my forearms. I tried the health/medical website recommendations on Arnicare Gel with absolutely no success. It was a complete waste of my money. However, when I reluctantly paid the considerably higher price for DerMend recently, I was pleasantly amazed. Within four days of use, my lemon sized blood bruise was almost totally faded. These bruises typically take four to five weeks to disappear. DerMend is well worth the price and I highly recommend this product. Thanks!
No more bruises!
Upon the recommendation of our Dermatologist, I bought the DerMend bruise cream for my husband. He always wore long sleeved shirts to hide the multiple bruises on his arms. He got bruises if he bumped against anything! After a few weeks of using the cream, his bruises are gone. He’s back to wearing short sleeved shirts in warm weather! It not only helped his skin, but also his self esteem!
Yes it works
Does exactly as stated: Creamy Odorless Effective Highly recommend
Bruises
Before I started, I had numerous bruises on my arms and legs. Some were explainable, others not. The DerMend has helped reduce the bruising considerably, but my skin is still very dry. I will continue using this product and hope that the bruising will diminish even more.
Bye bye bruises
Awesome product. Not only gets rid of bruises over time but it moisturizes your skin and makes your skin look healthier and smoother.
Dermend Moisturizing Bruise Formula Review
I’ve been using DerMend for quite awhile, I bruise quite easily due to medication I take for my rheumatoid arthritis and this is the best product I’ve found. I’ve tried many others with no luck. While Dermend won’t totally eliminate the bruises, it does help them to fade quicker. I’ve accepted that nothing will make them actually disappear but Dermend conditions the bruised area and fades them much quicker than any other product I’ve found. Give it a try!!
Dermend
I am no spring chicken but I knew I was too young for the bruising on my arms. I went to see my dermatologist and she recommended that I use DerMend as part of my healing process. And it certainly did the trick.
DerMend
Had several forearm bruises from fixing a broken drawer. I bruise easily on my arms the last few years and they take weeks to heal. Within a week of using DerMend the bruising was almost gone. Will continue using it to help my sun damaged skin repair. Have already recommended to friends.
This cream works!
I have tried many creams to diminish bruises but this is the only one to truly make a difference. It definitely shortens the healing time. I use it on my legs and it also acts as a great moisturizer. Not inexpensive but well worth the money.
A Product that Works
This product was recommended to a friend by a dermatologist. I tried it because I bruise easily even though I wear long sleeves all the time. It worked. I was bruise free after a few days. I still bruise but not as often, and the bruises are not as dark. I definitely see an improvement and highly recommend.
IT HELPS
I saw this advertised on the internet so decided to try it. I’m an 82 year old active lady and am constantly getting bruise spots. Also, when I take more than one low dose aspirin at bedtime large “bruise” spots appear on my arms and hands. It doesn’t work overnight but reduces the time it takes to “erase” those spots. I am glad I found something that gets rid of them sooner and will continue to buy and use your product.

DerMend Fragile Skin Moisturizing Formula Cream:

This is a fabulous product.
While seriously ill several years I used medication that left my skin, especially on my arms, extremely compromised. The slightest tap or scratch would leave a huge bruise and frequently break the skin. I tried many different products including the regular DerMend in the pink tube. None helped. About 6 weeks ago I started using the “for fragile skin” product in the blue tube twice daily and I’m astounded by the results. No more bruising or skin tears. It is truly a miracle product. Please, please never discontinue this product.

Worked better than the prescription stuff from the doctor
My husband badly broke his ankle in July 2016. He had two long incisions on both sides of his ankle. We had a terrible time trying to get the skin to heal up. The doctor gave us a prescription for stuff that didn’t help at all. One tube of this moisturizer was all it took. Now he uses it on a daily basis to keep the skin on that ankle soft and smooth. We wouldn’t be without it in our medicine chest.
Fragile skin moisturizing cream
This product is being used twice a day by my 76 yr old husband who has developed ”thin skin” on his arms resulting in frequent cuts and bleeding under the skin. We are seeing significant healing! Thanks to this product!
“Old Man Skin” now looks much younger!
I bought this product for my hubby. His skin ripped and tore if he even bumped against anything. Bandages and tape only caused more damage. After a few weeks of using the Fragile skin formula which was recommended by our Dermatologist, his arms are healed and do not seem as fragile. We don’t refer to his arms as having “Old man skin” anymore!
Demend fragile skin cream
My girlfriend really likes the way it keeps her hands from drying out. It last a long time with just a little dab. I would recommend this product for anyone with dry skin.
Does what it claims
This is a great cream for thin and damaged skin. It is silky smooth, makes my skin feel younger, smoother, denser. I love it for both arms and legs!
