Review: derma e Purifying Skincare #dermae #noticethelotus #demaedetox

(product photos courtesy of www.dermae.com)

I recently received a box from derma e Purifying Skincare to try out and review. I was happy that this box came, because my skin was recovering from summer. During summer pores become clogged, skin breaks out and in general things go awry. Fall is a great time to clean up your act and get your skin back in shape so that you will have great skin during the fall, winter and spring months ahead. Let us start with the cleanser and work our way down...


6 fl.oz./175mL $15.50
This refreshing detox cleanser is meant to lather away sweat, oil and toxin buildup for a clean, refreshed, glowing complexion. Doctor developed and clinically tested, this fragrance-free, sulfate-free and pH balanced formula contains some of the most powerful minerals and natural toxin fighters from the earth and sea. Kimarine® Wakame is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals). Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water binding properties, supporting healty skin hydration and nourishment. Activated Charcoal, known for absorbing 100-200 times its weight in impurities, helps thoroughly remove toxins from the skin's surface and pores. Green Tea delivers potent antioxidant defense, and a base of Aloe Leaf Juice revives skin with fresh, healthy hydration. This cleanser is ideal for oily, active or urban skin types, even safe for reactive skin (it has minimal ingredients and is allergy-tested), this formula boosts skin purity for a refreshed, glowing complexion. It is 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten-free and GMO-free. 

Gently lather over face and neck, then rinse thoroughly with water. Use morning and evening. Follow with derma e Purifying Toner Mist and your favorite derma e moisturizer. 

I found it to be incredibly gentle for my skin, it is definitely not harsh. Even my daughter, who has sensitive skin, can use it without fear of it causing any irritation to her skin. This cleanser is one of those that looks like it would be harsh but in fact, it is quite the opposite. It is completely gentle on the skin yet powerful in that it takes out impurities and toxins from the surface and pores. I love this cleanser and go to it often because I find that my skin benefits from its powerful cleansing action. 

4 oz./113g $15.50
Awarded better nutrition's "Best of Natural Beauty Awards" 2016, this scrub takes the Purifying Gel Cleanser to a whole new level. Gentle enough for daily use, it lifts away micropollutants and impurities while promoting oxygenation for a fresh, healthy radiance. Doctor developed and clinically tested, this revitalizing formula contains some of the most powerful mineral and natural toxin fighters from the earth and from the sea. Kimarine® Wakame is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals). Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water-binding properties, supporting healthy skin hydration and nourishment. Activated Charcoal, known for absorbing 100-200 times its weight in impurities, helps remove toxins from the skin’s surface and pores. Apricot Seed Powder gently exfoliates away micropollutants and Green Tea delivers potent antioxidant defense. This product is ideal for oily, active or urban skin types, even safe for reactive skin (it has minimal ingredients and is allergy-tested), this formula boosts skin purity for a refreshed, glowing complexion. It is 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free and GMO-free.

Apply a small amount to wet or dry skin and gently massage in circular motions. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. Gentle enough for daily use.

I love how gentle this scrub is, yet how powerful it is. It has the same purifying power as the Purifying Gel Cleanser, so you know it is powerful. But add in the power of exfoliation and it gets even better. Not only are you getting rid of toxins, now you are getting rid of dead skin cells too, which clog pores, causing acne (pimples, pustules, blackheads and whiteheads). So this scrub gets rid of impurities and helps fight acne too. 

1.7oz./48g $19.50
Winner of the delicious living Beauty & Body Awards 2016 and taste for life Essentials Award Winner 2016, this mask deeply detoxifies the skin of harmful micropollutants in 2 ways: first, natural clays infused with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladerwrack and Activated Charcoal lift out dirt, oil and bacteria to decongest pores as the mask dries and second, Apricot Seed Powder exfoliates away dead skin cells and captured debris upon removal. Kaolin and Bentonite Clays absorb exceess oils and impurities, relieving skin congestion. Kimarine® Wakame is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals). Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water-binding properties, supporting healthy skin hydration and nourishment. Activated Charcoal, known for absorbing 100-200 times its weight in impurities, purges pores of deeply rooted toxins, then Apricot Seed Powder gently exfoliates away micropollutants. This mask is ideal for oily, active or urban skin types, it is even safe for reactive skin (it has minimal ingredients and is allergy tested). Use this formula once or twice a week for skin that looks dramatically fresher, healthier and is purely glowing. 

Apply generously to clean facial skin, avoiding eye and lip area. Leave on for 5 minutes or until mask is completely dry. Moisten fingertips, then massage mask gently in a circular motion to activate exfoliants. Concentrate on areas of congestion such as nose, chin and forehead. Rinse thoroughly, or remove with a damp cloth. Pat dry. 

If your skin is problematic, or just needs some TLC, then this mask is for you. It really helps to clear skin up. The Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask gets rid of impurities and and exfoliates at the same time, much like a scrub but better. It has more ingredients in it that absorb impurities and that is where it differs from a regular scrub. This mask can help clear up active acne lesions and it can prevent new ones from forming. It also helps acne by getting rid of the debris that clogs pores, dead skin cells and sebum. I would highly recommend this to someone with acne or to someone who lives in an urban area, with lots of pollution, so that he/she can purify their skin often and get rid of the dirt and grime that comes with living in a city. For anyone else, it is a great mask to use once in a while to clear up your pores and suck out the impurities that we all have. 

2 fl.oz./60mL $15.50
Instantly refresh, rebalance and fortify skin against environmental pollutants with this mineral-rich, antioxidant-rich toner mist. Doctor developed and clinically tested, this pH balanced formula contains some of the most powerful minerals and natural toxin fighters from the earth and from the sea. Kimarine® Wakame is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals). Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water-binding properties, supporting healthy skin hydration and nourishment. Green Tea antioxidants help fight free radicals, prevent oxidative stress and protect skin from UVA and UVB radiation damage. A base of Aloe Leaf Juice revives skin with fresh, healthy hydration. This toner is ideal for oily, active or urban skin types, it is even safe for reactive skin (it has minimal ingredients and is allergy tested). The formula rebalances skin for a healthy, youthful glow. It is 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten-free and GMO-free.

Close your eyes and lightly mist over clean, towel-dried skin. Can be used on the face, neck, chest and back. Shake gently before using. 

This toner definitely refreshes skin. I also rebalances skin's pH level. After cleansing, using scrubs and masks, the pH level of the skin gets all out of whack. This toner brings it back to neutral where it needs to be. This way skin does not feel dry or tight. Skin feels back to normal. And since it contains the same purifying agents as the other products in the Purifying range, it helps the skin purify itself so that pollutants and other impurities stay out of the skin. Skin stays clean, refreshed and glowing. 

1 fl.oz./30mL $29.50


Shield skin against environmental and age damage. Revitalize a dull appearance with this concentrated, mineral-rich treatment formula. Doctor developed and clinically tested, this nutrient-rich formula contains some of the most powerful minerals and natural toxin fighters from the earth and from the sea. Kimarine® Wakame is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals). Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water-binding properties, supporting healthy skin hydration and nourishment. Green Tea antioxidants help fight free radicals, prevent oxidative stress and protect skin from UVA and UVB radiation damage. A base of Aloe Leaf Juice revives skin with fresh, healthy hydration. This serum is ideal for oily, active or urban skin types. It is even safe for reactive skin (it has minimal ingredients and is allergy tested). This formula protects and revives skin for a healthy, glowing, more youthful looking complexion. It is 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free and GMO-free.
After cleansing and toning, dispense onto fingertips and apply to face and neck. May be used alone or as a treatment layer underneath other derma e moisturizers to enhance their effect. Can also be layered underneath makeup. 

As with the entire Purifying line, this serum has the ingredients that help keep the skin free of pollutants, it helps hydrate the skin, it prevents environmental damage from UVA and UVB rays, it prevents free radical damage and it prevents toxins from damaging the skin. It is a very powerful serum. This serum keep skin moisturized and promotes a glowing, younger looking complexion. 

Then entire derma e Purifying line is unique in that although it is for oilier, active and urban skin types, it can also be used by those with sensitive skins. That tells you that the ingredients in the products are not harsh. In fact, they detoxify without being harsh at all. The ingredients are strong, they act with force as they purify the skin to get rid of impurities, pollutants, dead skin cells and sebum that clog pores. The best part is that they are gentle too. Even my daughter, who has very sensitive skin, can use these products without fear that she will become red and irritated. That has never happened with any other line before. And we are talking about a 15 year old girl who occasionally breaks out and needs some purifying skincare. There is one more product I did not get to try out, derma e Purifying Oil-Free Moisturizer ($29.50). It also has the above ingredients that the purifying products have. It would make a great addition to the skincare regimen above, as any regimen needs a moisturizer. 

I was very happy to test out the derma e Purifying products. My skin did very well with them, it cleared right up. derma e Purifying products are available at Ulta Beauty and Whole Foods.
