I live in Vancouver, where this pharmacy (www.krippspharmacy.com) is based. It appears that their skin products are basic forumulations without lots of filler ingredients, but I just don't know. Any experiences you have had with any of their skin products would be appreciated! I'd like to try some of their smaller size products but with the DMAE, idebenone, HA, copper, Vit C, E and all the other antioxidant ingredients, it's hard to decide what to try or in what formulation.

Thanks!

Good day Smokey, I live in BC and I have ordered from Kripps. About 6 months ago I ordered the small sizes of the 5% green tea extract in hyaluronic acid serum. The other one is the Copper Peptide complex with Hyaluronic acid serum. The green tea really smelled like tea and absorbed instantly to a matte finish. The copper peptide serum was a bit thicker clear gel like which was very nice and absorbed in a few minutes. I found I still had to put a moisturizer over these 2 products. Both products left my skin very smooth and not irritated at all. Next time I'll order their cleanser and perhaps a cream moisturizer. You're lucky you live right in Vancouver to get this stuff.

Thanks for your comments. I am hoping that when I go into the pharmacy, there will be a knowledgeable person who can answer my questions and help me pick the right products!

They do an amine based dmae gel with ala and something else all at 5.5%. It is pretty alkali, but it is also really good. I'd repurchase, but it was a real faff getting an international order together. I had a good few email conversations with the formulator there and they are very knowledgable and very friendly.

Guapagirl - this DMAE gel. What product did you put over it? A moisturizer?

I know what you mean! I have lived in Vancouver for many years and have walked by many times. I don't know what has made me seriously consider them - maybe the simple formulations - and that they are local so I can go by anytime to pick something up or take it back!

Mind you, my skin may not like their stuff and I'll be on the hunt again!

I used emu oil over it. The only problem is that If you use a vit c serum in the am, you have to give it half an hour before applying the dmae because it's so alkali that it would neutralise the C serum.. That said, I thinkl theyu have reformulated it (at my request!) to make it more neutral, but the original formula worked best I think.
