If you’ve been following the blog for awhile you know one of my favorite drugstore skincare brands is Derma E. I first started using the retinol moisturizer on a whim 10 years ago when I found them on the store shelves at Whole Foods. It was my first experience using clean skincare products and despite my sour expectations, I was pleasantly surprised. These dermatologist recommended products were surprisingly effective and did not break the bank! They certainly live up to their slogan of Proven Clean Beauty!
My latest favorite is their Ultra Hydrating Alkaline Gel Booster. This product is packed with hyaluronic acid and feels so refreshing on the skin. It’s lightweight and soaks in quickly so you can move on to a thicker moisturizer afterwards if needed. I found this product really plumped up my dull dehydrated winter skin. I’ve been following it with their Hydrating Day cream in the morning which contains green tea as well as Vitamin C, A and E. I’ve been loving the combination of these two under my makeup. They easily dry down so that I can work quickly in the mornings and move on to makeup and be out the door.
Another new favorite of mine is the Derma E Vitamin C Bright Eyes Hydro Gel Patches. These are a super hydrating eye treatment that refreshes and tones your undereye area. I’ve especially noticed the caffeine is helpful with puffy eyes in the morning. I’ve been applying these patches while I style my hair in the morning and within 10 minutes my eye area looks bright and well rested.

After using these and seeing positive results I’m definitely paying more attention to what I’m putting on my skin and prefer to use cleaner formulations when I’m able to find them!
As always thanks for reading!
