We know there are tons of gimmicks out there for skin care, so it’s always exciting to try a line that is simply based on good science. Today we have three skin care products from Dermarie to tell you about; you’ll not only get the inside scoop you will also have a chance to win one of them for yourself!
Dermarie is a new line for us and we were intrigued by their philosophy. All of Dermarie’s products are developed from science. This is a line that is about effective ingredients and results, not marketing magic. They find some excellent ingredients from nature, as well as some that chemists have invented. This is a technology-based line, folks – you won’t find any fads here! Everything is made and manufactured in the US and Dermarie is a cruelty-free line.
Today we have three products that Dermarie sent us to review, as well as a giveaway for each of the items. And if our review spurs your interest in the line, we have a special code just for Beauty Info Zone readers for a whopping 40% off. Just add in the code BEAUTYINFOZONE40 at checkout.
Lisa’s Side: I am the lucky one who got to test two of Dermarie’s bestselling skin care products. I tested both an eye serum and a facial serum.
Under Eye Illuminator Anti-aging Serum ($45)
I have eye issues, no doubt about it. I’ve got discoloration under my eyes, dark circles, and puffiness. So the Under Eye Illuminator Anti-aging Serum sounded right up my alley. This serum attacks all three issues and creates a healthier, younger looking eye area. It does this through peptides, one of the best ingredients available in skin care.
I used this for a month and I definitely noticed a difference. This is applied morning and night, and I actually also used a regular eye cream over it because the serum isn’t really for hydration. Check out what it does:
- Visibly improves the appearance of under eye dark circles, puffiness, and discoloration
- Active complex of rapid absorbing peptides improve skin tone and texture
- Treats all types of under eye dark circles
- Blue Circles from capillary pressure
- Brown Circles caused by hyperpigmentation
- Yellow Circles from hereditary factors
- Softens and smooths skin
And here is a statistic that made me hopeful – after two weeks, 83% of users reported a reduction of dark circles and 85% reported a reduction of eye puffiness. I noticed a big difference in both puffiness and under eye circles. If you have any of these issues, this just could be the answer for you. (Ingredients include Seaweed Extract, Purified Water, Hyaluronic Acid, Oxido Reductases, Soy Peptide, Hydrolyzed Rice Bran Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.)
Lumitox Acetyl Hexapeptide Anti-aging Facial Serum ($68)
Dermarie’s Lumitox Acetyl Hexapeptide Anti-aging Facial Serum has pretty sweet packaging. It looks like a great big needle, I guess because the serum is like a topical Botox. Dermarie says it ”interrupts the nerve signals responsible for facial expression lines and forehead wrinkles.” The peptides in this serum relax the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles, and by calming those muscles the appearance of lines is reduced.
The two peptides are Hexapeptide-30 and Acetyl Hexapeptide-8. There is a lot of science behind this and Dermarie does a great job of explaining what these peptides do HERE. The benefits of this facial serum are pretty amazing:
- Formulated with two revolutionary deep penetrating peptides Hexapeptide-30 and Acetyl Hexapeptide-8
- Reduces the severity of facial expression lines, wrinkle depth and fine lines
- Lifts and tightens facial skin for improved elasticity and firmness
- Relaxes and calms facial features for a more youthful appearance
- Nourishing and skin revitalizing seaweed extract with hyaluronic acid for added moisturizing and skin protecting benefits
I used this morning and night for almost a month, and found it be a wonderful, lightweight serum. Did it actually reverse my expression lines? No, I think I will need to keep using it for a month or two longer to really know the long-term effects of this serum. But it did hydrate and plump up my skin, and my wrinkles certainly did not get any deeper. I think this is an exciting serum with very interesting science behind it and I am excited to find out what my results will be in another month or two. (Ingredients include Chondrus Crispus (Seaweed) Extract, Purified Water (Aqua), Hyaluronic Acid, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Acetyl Hexapeptide-30, Arginine, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.)
Marcia’s Side: Eye Illuminator + Vitamin K Anti-aging Eye Cream ($58)
I’ve been using Dermarie Eye Illuminator + Vitamin K Anti-aging Eye Cream for almost a month now and every time I put it on I get mad at it. Truthfully, I yell at it in my head. I don’t understand why an eye cream has to be fragranced. But that hasn’t stopped me from using it night after night. The benefits outweigh the fragrance. Since everything in the eye cream is natural I know that the fragrance most likely comes from the organic botanicals used.
The results of using Eye Illuminator + Vitamin K Anti-aging Eye Cream compensate for my nose’s preferences (and the aroma only lasts about 20 minutes). The fact that this is helping with my horrible dark circles and the puffiness under my eyes makes me keep using it. Ingredients like Vitamin K, arnica, and DCX help with circulation and strengthen the delicate layers of skin under my eyes. Those ingredients also mobilize the blood flow around my eyes to alleviate the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and swelling. I take a million pictures (and delete 99% of them) and it’s not my undereye area where I use the Dermarie that shows up darkly.
Loving hyaluronic acid as an ingredient, like I do, makes this a very hydrating eye cream for me. The moisturizing qualities of hyaluronic acid along with the blend of these other ingredients make for an eye cream that does what it says – illuminates, helps with the signs of anti-aging, and decreases dark circles. I couldn’t ask for more.
