When it comes to skin care, I try a lot of different products and I do have my favorites from different brands. With sensitive skin, I always find that there are a lot of brands that cause my skin to flare up, so I’m very particular with what I use. One of the brands I do enjoy is Derma E. Today I’m going to share with you some exciting news and a little info as well as my thoughts on their Derma E Hydrating Day and Night Creams.
Derma E’s new packaging launched in September 2016 and I must say, I’m quite excited and loving the new design. The products still offer the great quality we can expect from Derma E, with a sleek packaging quite different from what we are accustomed to. With a new packaging design being rolled out through March 2017, you can expect to see this branding popping up in your favorite retailsers like Whole Foods, Sprouts, Ulta Beauty and many others. There will be no compromising their great formulas – as you’ll still be getting their eco-ethical, non compromising formulas in a new packaging that is a stunner. I honestly enjoy the fresh look of these, they look chic and branding is definitely on point.
To appeal 100% to their consumers, Derma E decided it was time to update their look and feel of the brand. Their social sites, website, store displays and more will be changing (if they haven’t already) and you’ll notice the new branding through out.
About the Brand:

In the photo below, you can see how the old packaging (Derma E Hydrating Day Creme) compares to the new packaging (Derma E Hydrating Night Cream). While the logos are similar, they still offer a very different feel than before. I like how the new packaging really encompasses the lotus and offers branding that really is on par with the brand and their products.
I have used various products from Derma E in the past, but this is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to try the Hydrating Day and Night Creams. I wanted to share my thoughts with you on these products and chit chat about how they have been working with my sensitive skin.
The Derma E Hydrating Day Creme with Hyaluronic Acid offers my very dry skin Intensive rehydrating treatment in one use. For just $29.50 you get 2 oz / 56 g worth of product that is perfect for dry to normal skin. I love how thick this cream is. It smooths onto the face nicely and offers my face the much needed moisture to keep from flare ups and irritations. It is perfect to be used under your makeup and works well with other skin care products in my regimen. The hydrating day cream helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by replumping the skin with moisture. With Hyaluronic Acid to deliver powerful hydration to help keep skin soft, smooth and youthful looking. It also includes Vitamins A, C & E plus an antioxidant Green Tea to help protect the skin from environmental damage.

The Derma E Hydrating Night Cream is especially great for my dry skin. Retailing for $29.50 (2 oz / 56 g) you get a lot of product to help keep up with your skin care regimen. The Hydrating Night Cream has Hyaluronic Acid and other beneficial ingredients (just like the day cream) to help keep your skin supple and moisturized. Like the Hydrating Day Creme, the Night Cream is extra-rich and thick. It offers intense hydration to help replenish all of the anti-aging moisture to your skin while you sleep. The Vegan based Hyaluronic Acid replumps the skin to help reduce the appearance of dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. And, the antioxidant rich Green Tea and enriching Vitamins A, C and E help to soften and smooth the look of dehydrated skin.

I’ve been using these two products now for about 3 1/2 weeks and combine them with other Derma E products I love. With colder weather on its way to Hawaii, my skin tends to get drier and I am always in need of good moisturizers and creams to help keep my skin / face looking youthful. Since I haven’t used these products before, I was not only intrigued to give them a whirl, but also impressed with how well they do work.
I love moisturizing products that provide my skin with the much needed hydration they need, but that do not clog my pores or cause me to have any funky reactions. That’s why I love Derma E products so much. Used with other skin care that I love, I know that I’ll get the moisture I need, without sacrificing the quality I’ve come to expect. Both creams smooth into my skin nicely and absorb quickly – but you must make sure that you do not use too much. Since each of these creams are fairly thick, a light, thin layer is all you need. If you naturally have oily skin, I think these creams may be a bit too thick for you, but for someone with dry skin like myself, they seem to work very well. In my honest opinion though, I’m not too fond of the fragrance for both of these products, so I’m glad that once it soaks into my skin, I can’t smell it as much. Living in Hawaii, Plumeria is something you smell often here, but since I now have sensitivities to fragrances, I find that it is a bit too strong for me. Thankfully, it fades after a few minutes, but that also means I can’t use these products on days when my allergies are at its worst, because those few minutes – can seem like an eternity when I’m already sneezing like a mad woman.
I enjoy the texture of both products and my skin loves them – it’s perfect for my dry Eczema prone skin. Derma E products are fairly affordable and I love that I can walk into my local Whole Foods and pick up a few products when I need them. There hasn’t really been a product I haven’t enjoyed from Derma E and any of them that I struggle with, I have learned to adapt according to my skin care and needs. I’m loving the new packaging as well – while I’m a fan of purple and loved how they really were bold and bright, I think the new packaging offers a serenity to the brand and I enjoy it.
So what about you? Are you liking the new packaging / branding for Derma E? Have you tried Derma E products before, and if so – what are your favorite products?
