derma e® has created a new line of products – their Purifying Line. There are 6 products in this new cruelty-free organic line and we were sent 4 of them to experience plus there’s a giveaway for this set of 4 too. The products in the Purifying Line have these key ingredients:
- Kimarine® is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, and heavy metals).
- Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water-binding properties, supporting healthy skin hydration, elasticity and nourishment.
- Activated Charcoal is a naturally powerful, absorptive ingredient (known for absorbing 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities) that deeply detoxifies and purifies skin.
- Green Tea is a potent antioxidant that helps fight free radicals, prevent oxidative stress and protect skin from UVA and UVB radiation damage.
- Aloe Leaf is an herbal remedy renowned for its ability to moisturize, soften, soothe and detoxify skin.
The 6 items in the line are Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask, Purifying Daily Detox Scrub, Purifying Youth Serum, Purifying Toner Mist, Purifying Oil-Free Moisturizer, and Purifying Gel Cleanser. Read about our four and then enter our giveaway. Meant to detox and reboost your skin, these do what they say. This line is 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten-free, GMO-free. Gotta love that.
I love the derma e® line and I’ve used their Soothing Cleanser and Hydrating Serum with Hyaluronic Acid for years. Today I am happy to you about two new products that have been added to my list of favorites from derma e® – the Purifying Daily Detox Scrub and the Purifying Oil-Free Moisturizer.
The Purifying Daily Detox Scrub ($15.50) is a facial exfoliant paste that is gentle but very effective. It has a great ingredient list, starting with the charcoal that absorbs impurities so they can be washed away. The scrubbing power comes from Apricot Seed Powder that sloughs off any dead cells, dirt, and oil. The aloe keeps skin super soft and moist. Like all the Purifying products, it also has the Kimarine® and bladderwrack mentioned earlier. Because the Purifying Daily Detox Scrub doesn’t have a whole slew of complicated ingredients, this gentle scrub should be safe for even very sensitive skin. I think it’s a fantastic way to keep skin glowing and ready for serum and moisturizer.
I was so surprised the first time I used the derma e® Purifying Oil-Free Moisturizer ($29.50) – it’s not often I find a moisturizer that is gray with silver opalescence! I’m not surprised by the performance of this moisturizer, however. It’s the workhorse I thought I would be based on the ingredient list, which includes some terrific antioxidants thanks to the Green Tea. The lightness of the lotion makes it perfect for anyone with oily skin…it might be too light for those with very dry skin. Otherwise, this is a terrific choice for a daily moisturizer that keeps skin healthy and looking fabulous.
My two products are the Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask and Purifying Toner Mist which work beautifully together or alone. I have become a mask junkie so it came as no surprise to Lisa when I told her that this was my first choice to try. I’ve run out of toner so this was a given.
DERMA E® PURIFYING TONER MIST ($15.50) contains Marine Algae and Green Tea to refresh and fortify your skin against the environment. It’s PH balanced with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladderwrack, Green Tea antioxidants, and Aloe Leaf Juice. With these great ingredients you are adding antioxidants that will help support your skin hydration and nourishment.
I use this Toner Mist several times a week, mostly during cleansing at night. The spray itself isn’t that fine, it comes out a little heavy unfortunately. Since I like it after I use the Purifying Charcoal Mask I always apply it after I’ve washed the mask away. I also like it when I’ve chosen to use a wipe or Bioderma instead of washing my face since I know this is going to remove any vestiges of makeup. Instead of spraying it on my face though I’ll mist it onto a cotton pad and use that to do the job.
DERMA E® PURIFYING 2-IN-1 CHARCOAL MASK ($19.50) is terrific for those of you who really don’t like to take the time to mask. This takes such a short time and leaves your skin in great condition. Apply it for 5 minutes, then wet your hands and massage for a minute or so. During the 5 minutes you’ll see it go from dark charcoal to a light ashy color. It hardens but it doesn’t crack. I use a washcloth to remove it and follow with the Purifying Mist Spray.
This is a dual action mask as the name implies. It detoxifies in two ways to purge pores of deeply rooted toxins while exfoliating away micropollutants for purely glowing skin. Since I have large pores I find this to be a terrific way to clean them. My nose and cheeks are always a source of concern for me and when I use the Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask I find that they stay clear for several days at a time. It decongests my pores as it dries because of the Kimarine® Wakame, Bladderwrack and Activated Charcoal. Then it exfoliates away dead cells with Apricot Seed Powder. This is a mask that I’m very happy to use.
