Summer Skin with Alumier MD & Vita Liberata Trystal

Alumier MD

When it comes to skincare lines, I'm always willing to try new brands that promise great results. Alumier MD is luxury skincare sold online or through a registered professional, who you can get in touch with here.


You can search by skin type or skin condition when finding a line of products that are right for you.

Alumier MD packaging is beautiful, simple and easy to use. The products are rich and concentrated, free from dyes and fragrance.

Medical Skincare Review
SensiCalm Cleanser, Calm-R Redness Relief Lotion, HydraCalm Night Moisturizer, Clear Shield Sunscreen

clear shield broad spectrum SPF

My standout product is this sunscreen. It's smooth, hydrating, sinks in and doesn't cause your makeup to move around throughout the day. This mineral-based, non-comedogenic sunscreen comes in multiple shades to suit all skintones, which you can explore here.

Clear Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 42 Sunscreen is a lightweight non-comedogenic sunscreen that provides powerful broad-spectrum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays using a combination of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, both physical filters. Niacinamide soothes and relieves redness to target blemishes and sodium hyaluronate hydrates, which is ideal for sensitive skin and redness. Light in texture, gentle and quick drying, this sunscreen is perfect for oily and acne-prone skin.

SensiCalm Cleanser


SensiCalm Cleanser $55

This creamy cleanser is light and gentle, perfect for those with normal to dry skin. I have combo skin and I love using it in the morning morning, or as part two in a double cleanse routine. I don't rely on it to remove my makeup since I prefer using an oil-cleanser as that first step.

Yucca seed extract is a gentle natural cleanser; niacinamide (vitamin B3), ceramides and vitamin E moisturize, leaving skin smooth, soft and intensely hydrated. Aloe soothes skin and calms redness.


Calm-R Redness Relief Lotion


Calm-R Redness Relief Lotion $136

Calm-R is a hydrating serum that targets the redness and blemishes seen in rosacea and redness-prone skin, while maintaining skin’s delicate moisture balance. The serum is well formulated and feels very good on the skin. There are no unnecessary frills, and the light lavender scent reminds me of my Miracle 10 products. Though I do notice a calming effect and reduction in my minor redness, I wouldn't repurchase this product since it's only 30 ml and comes with quite the price tag.

Hinokitiol has natural anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. Sea whip and glucosides are powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients, and marine glycosaminoglycans relieve redness by promoting a healthy collagen balance. Aloe and honey soothe, niacinamide (vitamin B3) moisturizes and tea extracts provide additional antioxidant protection.

The HydraCalm Moisturizer (50 ml) is a rich and restorative hydrator packed with natural anti-inflammatory ingredients specifically formulated to calm and reduce the redness seen in sensitive and rosacea-prone skin. This lotion is my go-to for nighttime, since it's not heavy and leaves a comfortable finish on my face. I love the cool twist-up pump packaging, it would be great for travel.

Sea whip and boswellia serrate extract have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, while aloe and honey soothe skin. An innovative low molecular weight hyaluronic acid and niacinamide (vitamin B3) provide intense moisture to all layers of the skin. Copper peptide supports healing and collagen production. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals from UV rays, pollution and inflammation to limit the skin damage these elements can cause.

A few of the other products I'd try from the brand: Ultimate Boost Serum $90, Spot Clearing Lotion, Vitamin C & E Smoother, and Acne Balancing Serum $79.

Vita Liberata

Vita Liberata Trystal Pressed Self-Tanning Bronzing Minerals in Sunkissed and Bronze $45 

I was so excited to try out the Vita Liberata bronzers since I love their tanning mousse (reviewed here). Over the years I've seen reviews of the loose bronzing minerals all over YouTube, and though they may not provide a long-lasting tan when you wash off your makeup, the immediate bronzing finish is stunning. At $45 each these aren't drugstore priced, but you get a massive amount of product and these powders are more pigmented than anything else I've tried. 

Trystal Review

The lighter Sunkissed shade applies beautifully and lasts all day. If I was being more consistent with daily application over a very thin base of foundation, I feel like you could see true "tanned" results on bare skin. 

Vita Liberata Bronzer Review

This bronzer is a great addition to your summer beach bag. It will add a beautiful wash of matte, warm colour. You could easily layer it over the Clear Shield Sunscreen above!
