Derma E | New Year Skin Detox

I was first introduced to Derma E a couple months ago, and quickly fell in love with all the products I was lucky enough to try for free. They recently sent me another package of goodies, in their new rebranded packaging, that are aimed at detoxifying and purifying the skin. Spoiler alert - I fell in love all over again. 

If you're new to the world of Derma E, their products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. They're also free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates, petrolatum, mineral oil, artificial colors, gluten, soy and GMOs. Basically, Derma E makes some fab stuff. 

The first thing I tried out was the Purifying Daily Detox Scrub ($15.50 for 4 oz). This charcoal-colored scrub has little bits of apricot seeds to buff away impurities and dead skin. It's full of minerals and toxin fighters like seaweed to protect against pollutants and activated charcoal which absorbs impurities. It's safe to use daily, but be sure to use a light hand, as rough scrubbing on the face with this formulation could easily create micro-lacerations that damage and age the skin faster.

I really, really love this product. It just might be my new favorite face scrub. My skin felt smooth and soft but not stripped after I used it and the price is right for a products with such fabulous ingredients. I can tell you right now that this won't be my last tube of this good stuff.

The Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask ($19.50 for 1.7 oz) is a very similar product to the scrub; in fact, the two almost look identical. This mask works to detoxify the skin in two ways - firstly, with natural clays and charcoal that lift out oil and bacteria. And secondly with apricot seed powder to exfoliate away dead skin cells and dirt. 

This is a quick mask - apply it to the skin, let it sit for five minutes (and it'll look dry like the picture above) and you're done! The texture is gritty, so when washing, you can massage it gently in to the skin for extra exfoliation and cleansing. 

I really enjoy using a charcoal mask every week or two to help purge my skin, especially when I feel a break out coming on. This is one of the best that I've tried and I think it's worth every penny. My skin feels clean, soft and free of gunk after using this.  

I'd highly recommend both of these products if you're someone prone to breakouts our if you're just looking to get rid of impurities or rough patches. The ingredients are pure, they actually work and the price is mid-range. 

Derma E is available online at and at Target. Purchases support global communities and the environment.
