I love when skincare or makeup companies that I adore become widely available and I can pick them up at the stores local to me instead of online only. Especially when they are now available at a store known for having awesome sales and a clearance section to die for. I'm of course talking about Target. Target is probably one of my favorite stores, especially since they expanded their cosmetics section to include NYX. Well now they are about to get even better because Derma e is coming to Target!
Derma e is a skincare line that I've been slowly exploring over the last year. They were a "healthy skincare line" before that was even a thing, becoming a forerunner in the green cosmetics world. They are cruelty free, gluten free, and GMO free. All their containers are recyclable and their production centers are wind energy certified. This is a great company, I love their commitment to leaving as small of an impact on the Earth as possible.
I've tried a few of their product prior to this, mainly their body lotion and the microdermabrasion scrub I got a few Birchboxes ago. The lotion is actually my daily lotion, I loved it so much I went back and bought a second bottle so I wouldn't run out. They were kind enough to send me their Firming DMAE Eye Lift cream, as well as a collection of smaller samples. But let's talk about the eye cream first. This cream helps to smooth away wrinkles and crows feet while visibly lifting and firming the skin around your eyes. There's collagen in it to help firm up your skin and hyaluronic acid to cool, soothe, and moisturize your eyes. You can use this either day or night, I've been using it during the day mainly and I really like it. My under eye area is looking firmer and the skin feels tighter. I haven't had any puffy eye disasters either lately, which is a huge plus. I'm kind of in love with this eye cream.
They also sent me a ton of samples to try, which is very appreciated. I've been using the Hydrating Night Cream every night since I got it and I'm sold. It leaves my skin feeling solf and hydrated come morning without being a greasy mess. And I've had zero breakouts from this, which was a major concern of mine. I haven't tried the Firming DMAE Moisturizer or the Hydrating Day Cream yet, I don't like to test more than one face lotion at a time. But given how much I've loved everything else I've tried I'm pretty confident that I'll like them.
Derma e should be arriving at your local Target any day now, though they'll only have these items to start with. I assume like with the NYX launch the brand will slowly add more items throughout the year depending on how well they sell. Next time I'm in my local Target I'll have to see if their display is up yet and I'll be buying a full sized tub of the Night Cream for sure.
