Hello! Tamara here once again. I recently received some goodies from Stacie and was so thrilled to see Derma E in the box. I have been using their Vitamin C Concentrated Serum for about six months now and liked it enough that I wanted to try some more of their products. Needless to say, I was really excited that she had also included their Vitamin C Renewing Moisturizer.
It’s only been within the last year that I have started using Vitamin C products in my skin care routine but, I feel confident in saying that no single ingredient has made a bigger or more positive change in my skin than Vitamin C. It has brightened my skin, faded dark spots, and made my skin look and feel smoother and more even.
I have incorporated these two Derma E products into my morning routine. I wash and tone, then apply the Derma E Vitamin C Serum followed by the Derma E Moisturizer. I keep my morning routine pretty simple because I have a teenager and a four year old diva to deal with every morning. I know that the more complicated I make it, the less likely I am to follow through. The fact that this serum and moisturizer are so easy to use and quickly absorb into my skin make them a perfect fit for me.
The serum is light and refreshing feeling. It goes on easy and doesn’t feel too sticky or tacky. The moisturizer is also light and almost has a gel-like feel to it. Having combo/oily skin makes this formula exactly what I’m looking for in the morning. It absorbs very quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. It plays well with my makeup and I’m not left feeling greasy or oily throughout the day as I’ve experienced with other moisturizers. I also like the fact that these products have other ingredients that are beneficial for my aging skin. The serum also has Hyaluronic Acid, Soothing Aloe, and Vitamin E. The moisturizer includes Probiotics and Rooibos.
So, what makes these better than other Vitamin C products? Well, there are several different kinds of vitamin c and many of them are considered unstable. They oxidize, are finicky about storage, have a short shelf life, and actually turn bad. The color changes, they put off a very unpleasant smell, and they lose their potency or even worse, they can actually cause damage if applied to your skin. The Vitamin C that is used in Derma E products is called Stay-C 50 and is considered far more stable. It does not evaporate or degrade before being absorbed into your skin.
I’m very pleased with these products from Derma E. They are effective and affordable and I enjoy using them in my morning routine.
