Review: DerMend Moisturizing Bruise Formula


diclosure-review giveaway

If you often find yourself looking at a new black and blue bruise and can’t for the life of you remember how you got it, there’s good news waiting for you at the drugstore! While there are an abundance of products to help minimize scars, there’s not so many for bruises.

Targeted care for bruised skin - with ceramides and arnica oil. Dermatologist recommended. DerMend Moisturizing Bruise Formula helps improve the appearance of bruised skin. Out proprietary formula contains ceramides, alpha hydroxy acid and retinol to rejuvenate mature skin and help restore and repair the skin's natural barrier.

My Review

My son and daughter have always bruised very easily and are clumsy most of the time. They bruise mostly on their legs, and I swear I find new ones on a daily basis. The kids love to run around, ride their scooters, chase the dog around, and generally play outside. I can’t keep them from falling down, but I was hoping to minimize the amount of bruises I find.

Aidan and Adisyn play this game where they run towards starr (our dog), and she will take off running. Then they’ll turn around extremely fast and she’ll start running after them. I don’t know how many times the kids accidentally tripped over each other when they took off running from the dog. I told them to slow down, but kids shall be kids I guess.

I put this on after bath time like a lotion on their shins. The bruises that were there the worse were gone in 2-3 days, Usually they stay for at least a week, so I was astonished. It seemed like it was fading the lightest spots in the bruises, and then working its way into the center of the bruise.


My mom also bruises very easily on her arms and legs. She works in a duct tape factory putting together giant display boxes and filling them with duct tape. The handling of the boxes when they are full of tape bruises her arms. She comes home some days looking like she’s been beaten. I let her use the Dermend cream to see if it would help her arms heal the bruising,

I don’t get to see her much through the week because she leaves for work at 5 a.m. and doesn’t get home until 4:00. Adam goes in to work at 3:00, and takes the Expedition. So unless she drives over here I don’t see her through the week. Most of the time she goes straight home to relax, so I didn’t get to take an after picture.

She did tell me that the bruises faded very quickly. She sounded surprised that they faded like they did. She usually keeps bruises awhile. I don’t know if she has gotten thinner skin as she got older or if she always bruised that easily.

I was glad she liked it and it helped the bruising though. She said that it the cream breaks the bruising into smaller spots and then disappears. She said it helped with discoloration while also moisturizing her skin.

She said after using it a couple weeks that her arms were hydrated just as if she’d been using lotion. It helps to rebuild and rejuvenate the skins natural barrier and improves the overall texture of the skin. She said it seemed to help her with not bruising as easily too.

This would be great for those that are older and have to take a blood thinner on a regular basis. Thin blood makes you not only bruise easier but the bruises look worse.
