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?

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.

What the cream looks like

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?

Review: Derma E Hydrating Eye Cream Hyaluronic Acid & Green Tea

I’ve used this eye cream for over a month. The eye cream claims to…

It’s awesome that it’s vegan and cruelty-free, but this is what I really think about it.

This is just another ‘moisturizing’ eye cream. That’s all it is. It doesn’t reduce wrinkles. It doesn’t reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. It doesn’t reduce laugh lines. It doesn’t plump the skin for a younger-looking appearance. As I said before, just another ‘moisturizing’ eye cream. I was really disappointed with the results. I have a Hyaluronic Acid serum that works just the same as this eye cream, and it’s around the same price (just a few dollars more). We’re talking about 0.5 oz (Derma E Hydrating Eye Cream Hyaluronic Acid & Green Tea) vs 2 oz (Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum)! Not only that, I apply the Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum all over my face including my under eyes. If you’re looking for an eye cream that just moisturizes, this is it. But I don’t think it’s worth it. Choose another eye cream or a good all-over moisturizer that hydrates and changes the appearance of your skin. Save your time and money. This eye cream isn’t entirely bad, but I would suggest skipping it for the reasons stated above.
