Goodbye old look, Hello new Derma E!

Derma E.  The brand that you have come to know and love has gotten a facelift.  Come to love the new look of Derma E...

Hello everyone!  All you Derma E fans out there....they now have a new look!  The skincare you have to know and love now has an updated look.  New look, but same amazing, award-winning formulas from the company you have come to  trust.  Having started in September, Derma E launched the new look and will be rolling it to all retailers by May of 2017.  The first lines getting the new revamp are the Hydrating, Anti Wrinkle line, Firming and their much loved Microdermabrasion Scrub + Overnight Peel.

First up, we have Derma E's Hydrating Day Cream.  Now I received the old style packaging of this, but that in no way hinders the amazing product inside.  The Hydrating Day Cream claims that it  "helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by replumping skin with moisture.  Hyaluronic Acid delivers powerful hydration to keep skin soft, smooth and youthful looking.  Vitamins A, C & E plus antioxidant Green Tea help protect skin from environmental damage." - Derma E

What I love about this cream in particular is how it really a heavy weight moisturizer, yet its formula is so lightweight!  Once blended onto the skin, you feel so soft and plumped.  The Day Cream does really well and delivering a quick shot of moisture when and where you need it.  It comes with the loveliest fragrance that is half flowery, half herbal, all subtle and does dissipate within minutes of application.  Perfect for those with sensative skin and those wanting to incorporate a moisturizing cream without fear of a major facial setback.      

Here is what the old packaging looked like.  Still beautiful, and the product inside was still the same, ever trusted skincare you've come to love.  Now it just has a beautiful new look!

I also received the Hydrating Night Cream...

This luxurious feeling cream is just like the day cream in that it packs a plumping and moisturizing punch to your skin but in a rich, nourishing formula. Derma E tells us that "this extra-rich, intensely hydrating night cream replenishes anti-aging moisture to skin while you sleep.  Vegan based Hyaluronic Acid replumps the skin, reducing the appearance of dryness, fine lines & wrinkles.  Also contains  antioxidant-rich Green Tea and enriching Vitamins A, C and E to help soften and smooth the look of dehydrated skin." - Derma E

Well, now that we know why I love them,  go HERE and learn about their entire line of ranges including Essentials, Purifying, Theraputic, Sensative Skin, Very Clear, Sun Care and more.

Remember that you can find Derma E and its range at these retailers near you - Ulta, Target, Sprouts, Whole Foods, Bristol Farms, Walgreens, GNC, CVS, Ralphs, Meijer and many local natural stores in your areas.  Remember to check to see if your lucky to have your particular location carry the line you want!

Continue that summer glow with Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

This summer, I was lucky enough to spend quite a bit of time outdoors and this led to my first tan in years.  I had forgotten what it was like to look healthy and bronze.  Now, don't get me wrong, I've got melanin, I know.  But I am always on the lighter shade of things so it was a change for me.  With that tan, I was a rocking a pretty sweet glow that I am was afraid of losing with the autumn here and winter just around the corner.  Thankfully, Valentia stepped in with their Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer and took care of any concern I had!

Let's get to the details...
Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer comes in a 4.0fl.oz/120ml dark glass bottle with a pump dispenser.  This moisturizer retails for $25.00 USD.  Moisturizer can be purchased through Amazon HERE.

"Packed with brightening power, this moisturizer helps to lighten pigmentation marks and enhance the radiance of your overall complexion.  With energizing antioxidants like Ginseng and Kojic Acid to control melanin production, dark spots are faded and collagen production is enhanced, revealing firmer more even skin.  Skin moisture is replenished is protected with Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Safflower and Shea Butter.  Tired and Dull looking skin is restored to unveil a healthier, more vibrant glow." - Valentia

The Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer is a lightweight yet moisturizing lotion that leaves skin with a radiant glow.  I was surprised because at first pump, the lotion itself seems very basic.  Once blended into the skin, you start to feel how soft and plump the skin becomes.  The lotion is very fast absorbing and leaves no trace of film afterward.  It is softly scented but the smell starts to fade soon after application.  I find that this plays well with my current multi-step facial routine.  This does brighten and make skin glow.  The feeling of moisture lasts for a huge chunk of the day and in areas where I normally get oily when introducing a new cream, I have minimal oil production.  After the first 2 weeks, I noticed a bit of fading on some of my darker spots.  I even used this cream down my neck, decolletage and arms and it has been a godsend on my arms (I suffer from keratosis pilaris) and this has smoothed them quite a bit.

Valentia keeps knocking them out of the park and cannot wait to see what they release next!
