This article is a long time coming. Really. I’ve been battling with so many different brands of skin care over the past few years and haven’t happily landed on one, until I went to Awad Medcial (Aesthetics & Wellness). Let me share my experience with you and hopefully save some of you from the torture I put myself through. I first visited Awad Medcial months ago, just for a consultation. I received some recommendations and decided to start with a chemical peel. Not a scary as you think. I was told that I needed a series of treatments, geared to my specific skin needs and that I would eventually work up to what is called a Glow Peel. Glow is what my skin did after just treatment number one. I couldn’t wait to get to the actually Glow Peel. Then came the skin care recommendations. Honestly, I always fret at these end-point conversations. I explained that I wanted to continue to use up my own skin care routine at home, to not waste any more money, and went on my way. But when I went back for chemical peel round 2, I made the switch and got the recommended AlumierMD products. Wow !!!!!! What a difference it made in my skin and it has continued to be perfectly amazing since then. So let me tell you more...
𝗗𝗶𝘀𝗰𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿 𝗔𝗹𝘂𝗺𝗶𝗲𝗿𝗠𝗗 @ 𝗔𝘄𝗮𝗱 𝗠𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁 𝘀𝗸𝗶𝗻 𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗱𝘂𝗰𝘁 𝘀𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗰𝗵 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗯𝗲 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗱 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗮𝗱𝘆𝗺𝗼𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗱.
Through advanced proprietary chemistry, AlumierMD, is a medical skincare brand, which delivers exceptional results all while being free of parabens, sulphates, petrolatum and dyes. AlumierMD’s formulation philosophy of “clean science” is not just for the diverse range of at-home products, but ensure their in clinic treatment peels are “clean” too.
At Awad Medcial - my professional skin care expect, Cathy, a Nurse Practitioner and Dermatology Specialist, always says home care and clinic treatments are each 50% of your skin care outcome. While I think magic happens by the end of my treatment, because I look so good and glowy - I’m always told to keep up with my ‘home care’. And it took me a while to figure that out. But I finally did and need to share this very valuable information.
𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗼, 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁, 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲, 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗵𝘆 𝗼𝗳 𝗺𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹-𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗱𝗲 𝘃𝘀 𝗰𝗼𝘀𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗶𝗰-𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗱𝗲?
The majority of skin-care products out there fall into the cosmetic-grade category, but if you’re shopping for a medical-grade product, you’d come out empty-handed hunting for them at a local Sephora or Shoppers Drug Mart. Unlike over-the-counter choices, medical-grade skin-care lines, which fall into the professional-strength, pharmaceutical-grade bucket, are primarily sold at dermatology offices and medical spas. The major difference between skin-care categories is the potency and strength of ingredients. Because of the higher concentration of medical ingredients, and proper packaging to avoid spoiling or degradation of the product, medical-grade companies are known for investing more in robust testing and clinical studies rather than advertising, which is why many of these brands are generally not as well known. Go one step for further and consider that Awad Medical is operated by Regualted Health Care professionals and find your reason they carry AlumierMD, as it’s backed by science and research. It’s important for them to have clinically proven products to stand behind.

I personally purchased a kit: Rejuvenating Skin Collection for Normal/Dry Skin which features six carefully curated, essential home care products to rejuvenate skin and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This ultimate anti-aging collection came with a bonus plush, white vegan leather-look cosmetic bag that I couldn’t resist. All of the products were geared to and specifically recommended to me by Cathy @ Awad Meical.
The entire kit was $380 (CDN) which shouldn’t be sticker shock because that’s 6 products (and it comes with a cute free bag) and furthermore, the best money I’ve ever invested in for my skin. So let me just say this: don’t even bother try to justify VIP points at your favourite retailer - use them for a mascara!

This hydrating pH-balanced creamy cleanser delicately removes impurities, excess oil and makeup, leaving skin smooth, soft and intensely hydrated.
EverActive C&E™ + Peptide
A potent antioxidant serum to reduce the visible signs of aging with a 15% vitamin C complex which is always optimally active. The vitamin C powder is kept separate in a unique cap and only mixed into the bottle of serum when you are ready to use it. FYI 15% is the perfect amount of Vit C, but it’s really about the packing - this one won’t spoil like most others and it’s USP grade. Ask more at your consultation.
Ultimate Boost Serum
A lightweight, hydrating serum that combines moisturizing and anti-aging ingredients to reduce the visible signs of aging. Perfect to use as a booster under your moisturizer. This one has hyaluronic acid - a must have!
Retinol Resurfacing Serum 0.5
A microencapsulated 0.5% retinol treatment that improves skin tone and texture and corrects the signs of aging. There’s 3 varieties of this to select from! Ask your professional which is right for you.
An intensely hydrating moisturizer loaded with powerful peptides, antioxidants, and soothing ingredients. Powerhouse peptides firm and strengthen the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while antioxidants provide protection from free radical damage.
Sheer Hydration Broad Spectrum SPF 40
A silky and sheer physical sunscreen that provides powerful broad-spectrum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. SPF is a MUST for all. Trust me when I say, even in your 20’s.
