MD Forte has a three product line of facial cleansers, and makes lofty promises of removing wrinkles and lines.
MD Forte is another brand that has a couple cleansers to choose from, while we are not the largest fan of this marketing approach these cleansers are geared toward aging skin and replenishing the nourishment it needs to look its best. Designed to penetrate deep into the skin to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while eliminating hyperpigmention and acne scarring, MD Forte certainly has lofty goals for a cleansers, we were eager to put it to the test.
While there are a couple different products to choose from, we had a bit of a hard time distinguishing between the goals and treatments of each, they all seemed to do pretty much the same thing. These cleansers seemed to be a balanced formula and were pleasant enough to use, however the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles was not visible nor was the removal of hyperpigmentation. Skin is left feeling clean and hydrated and there was some dead skin cell removal that resulted in skin looking revitalized and full of shine.
Personally, we admire the concept of creating a facial cleanser that removes wrinkles and fine lines. However, we know from experience using creams and such, that even the finest of anti wrinkle creams don’t always work as well as we’d like. Now, imagine a cleanser that you RINSE OFF, performing a task that wrinkle creams rarely can accomplish… it’s a little tough to have very high hopes for actually removing wrinkles with a cleanser. However, any help in that direction is much appreciated.
MD Forte uses Glycolic Acid in their facial cleansers, which is a commonly used ingredient in facial cleansers. It is a deep penetrating ingredient that is designed to work at the lowest levels of your skin and treat each of its target symptoms. Glycolic acid is a pretty strong ingredient for fragile skin to handle. It is an exfoliant, so if you have dry or sensitive skin, you probably want to skip this cleanser.
MD Forte use has had documented results in many studies and independent test, however our testing of MD Forte did not support any of their claims. It is a pleasant cleanser and it leaves skin feeling fresh, but it does not rank among the leading facial cleansers for consumers use.
Overall, we felt that this was an average quality facial cleanser that uses solid ingredients. The largest issue that we had was the fact that there seemed to be a series of cleansers from MD Forte that we just couldn’t decipher the difference between. We were compelled to purchase multiple products to get the full benefits of these cleansers, yet were left wanting. There was confusion about whether to use one of the products, or both in combination, it was just too awkward and uncomfortable. This is a facial cleanser, it does not need to be so complicated. Combine the right ingredients and treatments into a well balanced formula that provides the results desired. While MD Forte put forth a valid effort, they came up a bit short with this series of facial cleansers. There are many more effective options for facial cleansers with anti aging benefits, we suggest you continue your search.
