Hello and welcome back to the blog everyone! You already know I am a skincare junkie, and am always on the hunt for new products that are chemical free and actually show results. Well, I found a new brand and not only do they fit my very picky bill… and THEY’RE AFFORDABLE! I am so excited to be sharing with you guys today the Vitamin C Collection from DERMA E! This all in one 4 step process has had my skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated over the past month. Plus, this line is 100% vegan and cruelty free!
Today I am going to walk you through my top four products from the Vitamin C Collection by DERMA E! Let’s get started!
Invest in your skin, it’s going to represent you for a long time.Linden tyler
Step One: Brightening Facial Cleanser
This powerful cleanser has some of my favorite skincare ingredients in it. I am slightly acne prone, so I love glycolic acid and green tea in my cleansers to help promote killing bacteria without stripping the natural oils in my skin. I love the way it leaves my skin feeling too! My skin feels refreshed instead of tight like some cleansers. Overall I am rating this product a 5 out of 5 for me! Retailing at $15.50, this is a one pump and cleanse kind of product. So the 6oz bottle will last a while! Check out the Daily Brightening Cleanser now!
Step Two: Concentrated Serum
The next step in the Vitamin C routine is the Concentrated Serum! With a rating of 4 on the EWG Skin Deep scale, this serum still ranks pretty high on my list. My concerns are always added fragrance in products, which yes this serum has “Natural Fragrance”. However, this is the only red flag item on the ingredient list. The serum doesn’t leave you with a sticky feeling, and is almost immediately absorbed into the skin! With a 99% percent customer recommendation score, if you are OK with natural fragrance in your routine, this is a winner product! The Concentrated Serum retails for $24.50 and one pump will cover your face entirely. Check out the Vitamin C Concentrated Serum now!
Step Three: No Dark Circles Perfecting Eye Cream
When this came out tinted from the bottle, I was a bit confused at first! Now, I use this under my makeup instead of concealer! The No Dark Circles Perfecting eye cream is another great product from DERMA E’s line that offers coverage and results. Its an instant revitalization of your under eye area that I have not seen in another product. This powerful little tube has two vital ingredients that pack a powerful punch, turmeric and caffeine. The numeric acts as the brightening agent, giving it the color, while the caffeine is the deputing agent that wakes up your cells. The Vitamin C No Dark Circles Perfecting Eye Cream retails at $18.95. One swipe under each eye will take you from drowsy to awake in no time! Check out the eye cream here!
PRO TIP: freeze a roller and use in the mornings after you apply the eye cream for even better results!
Step Four: Intense Night Cream OR Renewing Moisturizer
If you are a fan of the K-Beauty trend known as sleeping packs, this night cream is going to be your new go to. The Intense Night Cream offers instant moisturizing results with its thick and creamy formula. Complete with probiotics, hyaluronic acid, and rooibos, this moisturizer packs a punch that helps reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and keeps that natural biome of your skin fed and happy! (Which in turn helps reduce acne and oily skin!) The Intense Night Cream retails for $22.50, and one little dime size finger swipe gets the face, and two swipes gets the face and neck! Check out this moisturizer here!
Overall, this collection really offers you quite a bit of bang for your buck. With some of my favorite ingredients from glycolic acid, caffeine, and green tea, this takes the cake and is a winner in my books. The D. Diaries Skincare rating overall is a solid 3 out of 5. With Fragrance coming in at a 3.5, this line definitely smells like you’re lathering up in a sweet citrus field! It’s not overpowering, but if you are sensitive to scents, or are not a fan of lemons, you might want to just stick to the No Dark Circles Perfecting eye cream! Chemical Free also coming in at a 3.5, this is due to the fact that some of the line does contain Natural Fragrance, and according to the EWG scale, this is still considered a chemical. Harsh on skin coming in at a one because this whole line has been so gentle and soothing to my skin, it has been WONDERFUL! Cruelty free is the way to be, so DERMA E scores a 5 out of 5! Plus the line is vegan, GMO free, gluten free, and soy free. So if you’re allergic to any of those, this is your new bestie! Last but not least, affordability. The products range from $15-$30 depending on ingredients and the “bougie essential” factor. You can buy the complete Vitamin C Set for $90 or $59 on sale. So while it may not be the cheapest set around, it definitely is worth every penny and offers great bang for your buck.
