Anyways, enough with the details of the product. The cream came in a jar. In purple packaging. It says ‘Firm + Lift’ right on the box.
When I first opened the jar, I noticed that the texture of the cream looked soft and creamy (it is a cream). It felt soft to touch and nice. I liked the texture of it. What threw me off was the smell of the product. It smelled of lavender. It was too much for me and overwhelming.
I didn’t attempt to use it on my facial skin. It reminded me of another face cream from Derma E called Radiance Brightening Night Cream. That face cream clogged my pores terribly. I didn’t want to take another chance and cause my skin to break out again. The breakouts from the Radiance Brightening Night Cream was HORRIBLE.
So I’m only using the Firming DMAE Moisturizer as a neck cream or hand cream. The cream makes my skin feel very soft. I would purchase it again for that use, but the smell is too heavy in lavender for me. I would not recommend this to anyone that’s sensitive to fragrance. I will repeat this again. It is heavily scented in lavender. I can’t imagine applying this in the morning surrounded by people. I prefer skin care products that are fragrance-free or subtle in fragrance. It has to smell good too.
Have you used Derma E DMAE Firming Moisturizer Alpha Lipoic Acid & C-Ester? What do you think about it? Yay? Nay?
