It’s winter here in Australia, and as the weather cools down, my skin gets to, unfortunately, dry up. Every winter I assess my skincare regime and try to work out what I can be doing to take better care of my face.
When I was asked to review the Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum* and Renewing Moisturiser*, I jumped at the chance. I had used Derma E products before and I knew that Derma E is a high quality, cruelty free brand that focused on using natural products wherever possible. I’d also heard about all the great affects of using Vitamin C in your skincare, but never really found a range that I liked. I was very keen to see if Derma E’s Vitamin C range would agree with my combination skin.
The Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum and Renewing Moisturiser* are both packaged in slender bottles with a pump that contain 60ml of product each. I love the simple white and orange label design because it instantly makes me think of oranges and therefore vitamin C. Both products come in a matching box.
The Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum* retails at $39.95 in Australia and contains active ingredients hyaluronic acid, non-oxidising vitamin C and aloe vera. According to the press release, this serum promises to help
…brighten the skin and boost collagen health, minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles and improving the appearance of uneven skin tone.”
The Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum* is a gel-based serum with a slight orange tint. It has a delicious natural citrus scent which reminds me of the lemon tree that grew in my childhood backyard. It dissolves into the skin very quickly and unlike some other Vitamin C products that I’ve tried, it doesn’t irritate my skin at all. After use, my skin feels very smooth and ready for some moisturiser.
The Derma E Vitamin C Renewing Moisturiser* retails for $34.95 and it is a very light, cream-based moisturiser. It has the same incredible citrus scent as the serum. I prefer a heavier moisturiser at night time, so I have been using the Derma E Vitamin C Renewing Moisturiser* as a day cream and I am please to share that it is the best day cream I have ever used! It’s super light, doesn’t add unnecessary grease to my t-zone and is the perfect base for make-up. I don’t even need to use a makeup primer when I wear this moisturiser!
In addition to non-oxidising vitamin C, the Derma E Vitamin C Renewing Moisturiser* also contains rooibos and probiotics. According to the press release, this combination of ingredients is designed to
…help shield and strengthen the skin’s natural defences for a smoother, firmer and more revitalised appearance.”
I’ve been using the Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum* and the Renewing Moisturiser* for a few weeks now and I’ve noticed that my complexion is looking brighter and I am experiencing less redness. I would definitely recommend these products to anyone who is looking for natural skincare solutions that actually work.
