Review: Derma E DMAE Firming Moisturizer
Sep. 15, 2019Leave a comment
This is the second face cream I’ve purchased from Derma E. It’s called Derma E DMAE Firming Moisturizer Alpha Lipoic Acid & C-Ester. What is the purpose of this cream?
- Nurtient-rich moisturizer
- Improve the appearance of skin’s firmness and elasticity
- Helps skin appear visibly smoother and lifted
- Antioxidant-rich Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C-Ester nourish for a more revitalized look
- Clinically Tested
- Dermatologist Tested
- 100% Vegan
- No Parabens
- No Pthalates
- No Formaldehyde
- No Petrolatum
- No Sulfates
- No Mineral Oils
- No Artificial Colors
- No Artificial Fragrances
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?

Garden of Life Organic Fit High Protein Weight Loss Bar (Chocolate Covered Cherry)
I’ve tried Garden of Life High Protein Weight Loss Bar before. At one point, I was addicted to them, haha. This time, I have Chocolate Covered Cherry. It’s a new flavor to me. This is what I think about it.
These are the blandest protein bars out there. They don’t taste like what it’s called Chocolate Covered Cherry. Just a hint of that flavor. It’s barely there. They are soft in texture. Somewhat similar to a brownie, which I like. Even though they are bland, I really do like these. They make a satisfying treat that’s low in sugar. There’s only 1 gram of sugar (0 grams of added sugar) per bar. That’s why these protein bars are tasteless. Each bar contains 200 calories with 14 grams of protein and 13 grams of fiber.
Do I recommend these? Once again, they are satisfying. I do enjoy having them early in the morning with my breakfast or alone. Since they contain Green Coffee Bean Extract, it wakes me up quickly. But, I realize that I am very sensitive to caffeine. I get really hyper when I consume caffeine, lol. That’s why I don’t drink coffee with caffeine as much anymore. I choose decaf whenever possible. These protein bars (to me) are very addicting due to the caffeine in it, so I only purchase them once after a couple of months for a nice low sugar, high protein snack. Yes, I would recommend them if you can handle a snack that’s bland.

Raw Rev Glo (Mixed Nuts, Caramel & Sea Salt)
Remember Raw Rev Glo Protein Bars? One of my favorite flavors is Mixed Nuts, Caramel, & Sea Salt. This is what I think about them now.
I still feel the same way as I did before in my last review. It’s healthy and tasty at the same time. It’s filling too. This protein bar makes it feel like I’m eating a candy bar. I would definitely purchase these again soon. 🙂
Raw Rev Nutty Superfood Blend (raw cashews, peanuts, raw almonds, pea protein, organic brown rice protein, raw organic hemp protein, raw organic virgin coconut oil, raw organic chia seeds, raw organic sprouted flax seeds) isomalto-oligosaccharides (prebiotic fiber from tapioca), organic Italian dark chocolate chips (cane sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla extract), pea protein crisps, natural flavors, organic brown rice syrup, sea salt.
Have you tried any of these protein bars? Did you like them? 🙂
