I have normal to dry skin (more dry than normal) that is pretty sensitive. I’m almost 30 so my skin is aging and I’m having to worry more about preventing wrinkles than treating pimples but my skin does still get congested and I get a hormonal spot or two here and there. When I recently received a box of purifying products from derma e I was worried that they wouldn’t be gentle enough for my delicate skin but it turns out that two of them have made it in to my regular beauty routine.
First up is the Purifying Daily Detox Scrub, which I’ve been using a couple of times a week. This mild, not at all harsh, scrub gently buffs away dry skin, micro-pollutants and impurities and also happens to be loaded with minerals, antioxidants and natural toxin fighters that help keep skin looking fresh and radiant. This inky charcoal black scrub feels quite cooling thanks to the Menthol in the formula but doesn’t cause me any irritation. I actually like to use this first and then go in with my normal cleanser afterward. It leaves me soft and glowing.
I have also been enjoying the Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask. I’ve been using this mask, and scrub combo, to purify and decongest my skin once or twice a week. I’ve noticed softer, smoother, clearer skin every single time I’ve used this product and I’ve been so pleased with the results. The really cool thing about this product is that you apply to your skin like you would a normal mask and after it dries you can use a little water to turn it into a scrub for an even deeper, more thorough, cleanse and pore purifying session.
My only issue with this little gem of a product is the fact that it comes in a relatively small tube, 1.7 ounces, and I find that I need to use quite a bit of product to cover my face and neck evenly. It’s worth it, though!
