Derma E: Anti-Acne Skincare

PR Sample
If you are one of my Instagram followers, you know my love for DermaE products. DermaE has been a part of both my morning and evening skincare routines for the past couple of years. Yes, I have been gifted some of their products for review, I have purchased even more. With that being said you can imagine my excitement when I received yet another gift. This time and right on time, I received the DermaE Anti-Acne line. 


Even at 54 years of age, I still get the occasional breakout...what's that all about?!  Whenever I experience a breakout, I find, most effective, products containing salicylic acid and although I'm not a fan of the scent, tea tree oil. Both of which are contained in these DermaE products. So let's go over the products received. 

The first item is the DermaE Acne Deep Pore Cleansing Wash-$15.50 for 6.0 fl oz/175 ml: "A daily cleanser that removes built-up oil and debris to help unclog pores, promote clear skin and prevent breakouts." When I wear makeup, I double cleanse to remove my makeup, then use a foaming cleanser as my second cleanse. If I double cleanse, I will use this cleansing wash for my second cleanse, otherwise, this will be my first cleanse. It has a slight Tea Tree scent but dissipates quickly. I use this in conjunction with my PMD Clean Smart Facial Cleansing Device. Now, this wash can be used 1-3 times a day depending on the severity of your acne, but as I am only dealing with the occasional breakout, I will use it 3-4 times a week as part of my PM routine. 

Ingredients as posted on the DermaE website:
  • Salicylic Acid: This tremendous skin exfoliator helps prevent clogged pores that can cause breakouts. The Acne Deep Pore Cleansing Wash contains 2% Salicylic Acid.
  • Tea Tree Oil: This therapeutic oil can help ease problems caused by a number of skin issues.
  • Lavender Oil: A rich oil that nurtures the skin to help the complexion look clear and healthy.
  • Rosewood Oil: Balances skin to promote the appearance of healthy skin.
  • White Willow Bark Extract: Like Salicylic Acid, White Willow Bark exfoliates the skin to keep it clear and help prevent blemishes.
  • Chamomile Flower Extract: This plant-based ingredient gently soothes skin.
  • The Acne Deep Pore Cleansing Wash is 100% vegan and cruelty-free and does not contain parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, lanolin, gluten or GMOs.
  • Active Ingredient: Salicylic Acid 2%

The next item is the DermaE Acne Blemish Control Treatment Serum-$16.99 for 2.0 oz/60 ml: "This acne blemish treatment serum helps to fight against blackheads, breakouts, and cystic acne." After cleansing with the DermaE Acne Deep Pore Cleansing Wash, I apply a thin layer of this serum allowing it to absorb into my skin, again using my PMD massage function. Like the wash, this can be used 1-3 times a day, but I again will only use it 3-4 times a week, depending on how my skin is behaving or misbehaving. 

Ingredients as posted on the DermaE website:
  • Salicylic Acid: This acid is tremendous at exfoliating dead skin so it can’t clog pores and cause breakouts. The Acne Blemish Control Treatment contains 0.5% Salicylic Acid.

The last product received is the DermaE Acne Rebalancing Cream-$19.50 for 2.0 oz/56 g: "A skin-balancing formula that provides essential nutrients to help clear and prevent breakouts, reducing redness and irritation." As the "cherry on top" to this adult acne system, I use this cream as my moisturizer. The salicylic acid along with the other ingredients helps to balance my skin and prevent breakouts. It can be used under makeup so AM or PM use is possible. But I will be using it with my PM routine.
