Derma E helps you Detox – Your Skin, That Is!
When I was offered the opportunity to try out products from DERMA E’s line of activated charcoal skincare, I was so excited! I’ve fallen in love with many DERMA E products before, so I knew that I could expect a lot from anything they graciously sent me. Just want to throw in a little reminder – I’m always honest whether or not I buy a product myself or it’s sent to me! I did a little dance when I opened my package and found the DERMA E Purifying Daily Detox Scrub and Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask. Especially considering the timing (two weeks after the holidays), my skin was ready for a detox!
Let’s talk about the goods. The DERMA E Purifying Daily Detox Scrub is advertised as a “gentle exfoliant” that “lifts away pollutants and impurities, promoting a fresh and healthy radiance.” Since it’s called a daily scrub, I used it daily for a week to test it out. As suggested, I applied the scrub to my freshly washed face and used it to gently massage my skin for a minute before rinsing. The creamy scrub smells faintly medicinal, as many activated charcoal products do, but not unpleasant. It is “scrubby,” but not abrasive, and certainly gentle enough for my combination skin to use daily. And if I do say so myself, my skin is looking a bit more radiant these days! I will use this product until I finish it, at which point I will consider buying it.
The DERMA E Purifying 2 in 1 Charcoal Mask is advertised as a “deep detox” that “purges pores of toxins” while it gently exfoliates. So… I don’t know how to tell if my pores have been purged. That’s not a thing I ever learned in school. I can tell you that this is a very refreshing mask to wear, slightly tingly, and easy enough to wash off. I can also tell you that I used it twice and have had limited breakouts since that time. I would like to note that I found the mask to be a bit drying, but I would tend to expect that given the name. It was nothing that couldn’t be fixed with a nightly moisturizer!
Let me finish by reminding you that DERMA E is an incredibly ethically-minded company whose products are vegan, cruelty-free, and free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates,
petrolatum, mineral oil, artificial colors, gluten,
soy or GMOs. So, if you’re into that and you also feel like your skin could use a good detox, check out the DERMA E Purifying Daily Detox Scrub and Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask!
