UTOPIA Skincare Enriching Derma Gel is my new holy grail product for body. It drastically improved dry patches on the skin and became a must-have for me because how well it nourished my skin on my chest and back.

My experience:

UTOPIA Skincare Enriching Derma Gel comes in beautiful sea blue tube and contains 100 ml of gel. The outer packaging is a pretty standard sturdy paper box and looks very professional. The gel itself is formulated to be used on any areas of your skin. It has a translucent off-white color and beautiful floral scent to it. Once you peek into the ingredient lists, it's a big wow factor for me. Containing vitamins A, C and E it is a wonderful multitasker for sure.

 

I have tried using it on my face as a moisturizer and it did a good job. It absorbs not too fast and leaves little to no trace on the skin. Initial 5-10 minutes it feels sticky on the skin but after the absorption is complete, you can't tell the difference wether it has been applied or not. Using this gel in the summer on an oily skin areas on the face is a dream. Outstanding achievement of formulation, concentrated active ingredients and beautiful versatility of this products makes it a must-have for travel.

 

The company is advertising this gel as a product which should be used with their Dermawave anti-ageing skincare device. I can see and feel why. Since Galvanic/Ultrasound face gadgets are quite effective on their own, pairing it with well formulated treatment instead of classic slider gels would lead in theory to much better results. If your skin is normal/dry, using this gel a sole step of skin care would not be enough for you. I'd rather recommend investing into the night cream and face serum from this brand.

 

Using UTOPIA Skincare Enriching Derma Gel on the body is another story. I find it so soothing on my skin. Having multiple break-outs on my back and chest due to the hormonal imbalance has lead to the fact that I was turning into Mrs. Pimple faster than spelling a word P-I-M-P-L-E. I could not keep up with the changes is going through and I was on a lookout for something that would be light and gentle on my skin. The Derma Gel has been my savior! it took me 3 days of use to reduce the amount and size of the Breakouts by 50% Yes you heard me right. Once applied on the body it has a wonderful cooling effect that lasts for about 20 minutes. If you are a menopausal lady with hot flushes, this topical gel is the bomb!

 

I was stunned. I am sorry, I correct myself now. I am stunned! Never ever have I come across a body product that leaves zero finish on the skin yet balances it out nearly immediately. This gel is match made in heaven for me. I recommend it to anyone with breakouts on their body. And to all women going through a rough patch with the hormonal fluctuations or who enter or are ind the midst of the menopause. Try it, you won't be regretting it.
