Believe it or not this was my first time using derma e products. I’ve seen them before at Whole Foods and Walgreens, but I just hadn’t gotten around to trying them. They have a great reputation, and I was excited to learn about the clean formulas and commitment to the environment.
I chose to test out the Soothing Oil Free Moisturizer for use under makeup on days when my skin is feeling like it just needs a little moisture, but nothing heavy. One of my favorite things about derma e is the value. I don’t mean just price, although the price point is great too! For a drugstore price, you are getting highly efficient natural ingredients, the best antioxidants and vitamins in a cruelty free and vegan formula.
I was surprised at the gel texture of the Soothing Oil Free Moisture. I needed a very small dab for my entire face. The gel sinks into my skin immediately and I didn’t have to wait around to start applying my foundation. The formula includes anti-aging Pycnogenol®, which is a gentle but powerful antioxidant, that helps neutralize free radicals.
I feel like this moisturizer will be great for those with very oily skin, and for my own summer time use. I’ve recently started a prescription medication that is leaving my skin dry and irritable, so I am going to pick up the Hydrating Day Crème with Hyaluronic Acid.
In addition to changing skin care routines with the seasons, make sure to drink plenty of water. The furnace constantly running always dries my skin out. I also have a couple of humidifiers running in our house at all times. You might also find that increasing your exfoliating regimen will help your skin better absorb moisture. I like my FOREO LUNA and the Michael Todd Soniclear Elite.I also find that using my
Le Mieux Skin Perfecter and Michael Todd Eye Eraser help with infusing products deeper into my skin.
