You all know my love for SKIN. I decided to try this “ethical beauty” company named Derma-E. They say “they are committed to you health, well-being and the natural environment.” I am always down to try skincare products that are natural and clean. I only wish they had sent me a moisturizer and a cleanser. I used my own cleanser however and used the rest of their products. The products I used are:
Derma-E Vitamin C Instant Radiance Citrus Facial Peel
First Impression: It smells GREAT! It also comes with a small spoon, which I’ve never used before. It is used to take the peel off - we shall see. I typically swear from peels because my skin sometimes ain’t having it, but since the brand is “natural” we shall see.
After used: The citrus facial peel consistency reminds me of mashed sweet potatoes the application with a little spoon makes it a little tricky to apply. I think I prefer applying mask with my hands. After applying the mass I’m leaving it on for three minutes because sometimes my skin freaks out on peels, you can leave it on for five minutes it says.
However, I’m am going to just try it for three minutes. After about a minute or so and I can already feel it tingle a little bit not to the point where I have to take it off. The smell is amazing though, it’s really fragrant. After my timer went off, you’re supposed to scrape the peel off with the little spoon again so I did that and that was fine. Then you’re supposed to rinse with cold water to neutralize the peel slight (tingling after application is normal) and then follow with your favorite derma E moisturizer again they didn’t send me a moisturizer just the serum spray and toner so I’m going to use the toner next.
Derma-E Anti Wrinkle Toner
First Impression: Smells amazing. I like toners so I’m looking forward to using this.
After used: No complaints on this, it was light and not overpowering (did not make me face sting).
Derma-E Blue Light Shield Concentrated Serum
First Impression: Smells good, the texture is gel like and the color looks like a greenish/gray - I am used to serums being clear or white.
After used: Make sure you rub it into the skin really good and make sure your skin in dry first.
Derma-E Blue Light Shield Spray
First Impression: the spray is green, not used to color from sprays. The smell however smells like green tea, I’m looking forward using this.
After used: Spray felt amazing after the peel and toner. Spray was very light and the smell reminds me of being in nature (if that makes sense).
Derma-E Sun Defense Mineral Sunscreen (Face)
First impression: Looks like standard sunscreen
After use: Ladies, make sure your skincare routine includes sunscreen! Yes my melaninated ladies, we can still get skin cancer so wear it!
Derma-E Sun Defense Mineral Sunscreen (Body)
First Impression: Looks like standard sunscreen
After use: No complaints here.
In review, my skin felt amazing after the routine. I allowed my face to react to it after several hours and it was just fine. I like the company is clean, natural and stands behind their products.
