Last summer, we photographed our entire product line which we then promptly displayed on our social media and website. We shot for an entire day and used various set ups to achieve the high quality look that matches Vivid MD’s high-end luster.

We proudly welcomed esteemed celebrity aesthetician, April M. Chaney to the Vivid MD Skincare cadre of clinical estheticians offering our products with her facial and peel services. Follow her socially on Instragram @liramakeup and Facebook /lirpamakeup to catch her busy schedule of makeup classes and esthetician activities.

Make-up-a-day Instagram post

October’s Free Satin Cleanser Give-Away was a runaway success. We posted a Make-Up-a-Day shot on our Instagram page highlighting the many benefits of our Satin Cleanser. We were delighted with our customer response — because they desired a cleanser that effortlessly removes Halloween makeup and leaves the skin with a fresh and delicious scent.

Day at the Races, one of Vivid MD's social causes

Vivid MD Skin donated in a number of charity events throughout the year. We donated charity baskets to the Sunshine Kids and the 5th Annual Day at the Races benefiting the Motion Picture & Television Fund.

It's the end of the year again. Here's what happened!

This year has been filled with lots of excitement! Thanksgiving is in just a few hours, and we're so thankful for all of the incredible accomplishments we've made this year!

The first was in January when we got our new office manager, Brittany!

Meet Brittany!

Brittany loves working with us. When she first started, she had hormonal acne on her cheeks. We got her set up with a daily routine including the Purified Whipped Cleanser, Clear Skin Toner, and Balancing Moisture Cream. Now take a look at that recent photo! She's so happy with her clear skin!

Brittany's skincare regimen!
Check out Brittany's daily skincare regimen. 
The Purifying Whipped Cleanser deeply penetrates the skin and removes heavy sebum that cause breakouts. 
The Clear Skin Toner contains AHAs and BHAs, leaving the skin acne-free, minimizing pore size and visibly correcting fine lines and wrinkles.
The Balancing Moisture Cream uses Vitamins A & E to nourish for up to 20 hours. It also contains anti-aging peptides!

If you have oily or acne-prone skin, this regimen is perfect for you. 

Anyway, back to our exciting year. In February, Michelle came up with the brilliant idea of getting our own custom iWallets! They stick to the back of your smart phone and you can store your business cards, credit cards, or IDs! If you ask us, we may just include a free iWallet with your next order *hint hint*. (While supplies last)

Aren't they awesome?

March was very exciting. We were able to bring goodies to the TNT show Rizzoli and Isles! You can see Jordan Bridges is elated by our Purifying Whipped Cleanser. You can even see Michelle and Brittany giving Bruce McGill a facial in the makeup trailer! 

Jordan Bridges and Bruce McGill! Yay!

In May, Michelle Garbin, owner of Vivid MD Skincare, was featured on the YouTube channel yingandyangliving. She helped the host, Moon Cho, show viewers some natural skincare remedies. Here's one of the videos! 

It's so simple!
By the way, isn't Michelle awesome?

June gave us our most drastic change. We were able to move into a beautiful, brand new office! It's spacious and bright and we absolutely love it!

Impressive, we know.

I almost forgot to mention one of the most important events, our repackaging project! Yep, we're slowly but surely updating our packaging into a sleek and beautiful set (Obviously, because our products will give you sleek and beautiful skin)! So far, we've repackaged our Purifying Whipped Cleanser (Brittany's favorite, of course). 
Ta-Da! So sleek. So beautiful.
Wouldn't that look great on your bathroom sink?
Yes, yes it would.
In October, the department head of American Horror Story, Eryn Krueger, posted the benefits of our Satin Cleanser as a fake blood remover! Check out her post. 

This natural cleanser is gentle on the skin, yet
tough enough to remove fake blood! It's an amazing product
for makeup artists to use to remove their actor's makeup,
and even for anyone to remove their makeup at the end of the day!

Am I missing anything? Oh, yes. We were SO excited about this next one. Last month, we sent over some goodies to The Big Bang Theory. You know, that super popular show on CBS with the smart, nerdy guys and their beautiful neighbor? Well, we were thrilled when the show's star Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting included a photo of our products on her Instagram! Talk about exciting... 
That's what we like to see!
FYI, that's our Satin Cleanser she's holding.
We also got to go to the set of Sons of Anarchy to hand out some goodies. That was incredibly exciting and amazing. Unfortunately, we didn't manage to get any photos because of all the thrilling chaos! 

So that's the list of our most exciting accomplishments this year. There are a lot more little things that we've done as well, but we thought we'd share our favorite highlights. We hope you enjoyed!

What are the most exciting things that happened to you this year? 

Oh, and don't forget to like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter and Instagram. We like to post exclusive deals on there from time to time and we wouldn't want you to miss out!

P.S. Happy Thanksgiving!

Satin Cleanser

Our Other Cleanser
Satin Cleanser
This cleanser is gentle, light, and creamy. 

I personally have very sensitive skin and can only use a few products. The satin cleanser is great for my skin, it is very soothing as it softens and cleanses, and smells amazing. When I have any redness it helps to eliminate that from my complexion due to some of its ingredients such as chamomile, Vitamin C, anti-oxidants, and nourishing agents. It is also a great cleanser because it removes my make-up, and keeps me looking young by rebuilding my collagen.

Along with sensitive skin, our satin cleanser works well for those with normal skin, mature skin, combination/stressed skin, and even people with rosacea. Just pair it with your other favorite Vivid Md products and you’re on you’re way to clean, clear, and happy skin!

For the month of October we will be doing a special promotion. If you place an order that has a minimum of $100 you will receive a Deluxe Satin sample and Halloween gift box! Satin cleanser is a Halloween must-have because it removes fake movie make-up and blood as well!

Balancing Moisture Cream

You may be surprised to learn that Vivid MD's Balancing Moisture Cream is not only a lightweight moisturizer but a makeup primer and it's natural ingredients work as a bug repellant too!

One of the main ingredients in Vivid MD's Balancing Moisture Cream is Farnesol Complex, which is made up of herbs, vitamin K and pure essential oils.

These natural ingredients:
  • smooth wrinkles
  • normalize sebum secretion (helps to matte skin)
  • increase skin elasticity
  • time-release stabilized Vitamin C, A, and E give continuous moisturizing for up to 20 hours
  • repel insects

As a Moisturizer:
I use this moisturizer on my clients before applying their makeup. It helps to prepare the skin for regular makeup application and gives the skin a youthful complexion. I know my client's skin will look beautiful all day because of the unique time released moisturizing formula.

As a Primer to Protect the Skin:
It's always a good idea to protect the skin before applying a prosthetic makeup. Some people can have a reaction to the makeup and you really don't want to be the artist when that happens! Here's an example of a makeup by Todd Masters on the film "The New Daughter" I worked on a few years ago where we used Vivid MD Skincare's Balancing Moisture Cream as a prosthetic primer. The moisturizer was used in between the skin and the special effects glues as a barrier to protect the actor’s sensitive skin. 

As a Bug Repellant: 
We shot that film in the swamps of the Carolinas. The special effects makeup artists were covered with bug bites everywhere that was not clothed, such as the wrists and forearms.  Knowing the ingredients in my moisturizer I decided to try Balancing Moisture Cream on any exposed skin like our necks, faces and forearms hoping to keep the bug bites away and sure enough it did! 

I have several jet setting clients that have a hard time finding bug repellents made of natural ingredients while in Italy. These clients make sure to pack their Balancing Moisture Cream in their suitcases, especially during hot summer nights when traveling abroad.
