Today I have a review of the Firming DMAE Moisturizer from Derma E. I purchased this moisturizer after using up one of the moisturizers in my stash and have been testing it out for several weeks. [info in italics taken from the Derma E website]
Visibly firm, lift and smooth skin with this skin-firming formula. Rich in moisture and nutrients, this nourishing cream contains ingredients shown to help addressing loss of elasticity. Our formula contains DMAE, known as nature’s firming agent, Alpha Lipoic Acid, known as the universal antioxidant and C-Ester plus moisturizing Jojoba Oil and nourishing Vitamins A and E. This replenishing formula leaves skin thoroughly hydrated, nourished and firmer-looking. Ideal for those who are looking to visibly firm and lift the face or neck. 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten-free, GMO-free.
This moisturizer suggests that you do a patch test before using due to Alpha Lipoic Acid can cause a reaction in some people’s skin. Because I have sensitive skin, I always do a patch test for new skincare, first on my arm, then on my neck before putting anything on my face these days.
It has a very faint tingle when applied. Not a “Danger! Face melting off!” tingle. The feeling is hard to describe. The closest feeling would be to that of a really gentle lip plumper.
It is very rich, and hydrating, but doesn’t feel heavy or greasy. And it makes my skin look super smooth! As an added plus, it works like a primer with my Deciem Serum Foundation, and various concealers in my stash. I haven’t tested it with any other foundations in my stash yet.
Ingredients: Purified Water, Glycerin (Vegetable Derived), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Plant Derived), Stearic Acid (Vegetable Derived), Glyceryl Stearate SE, Thioctic (Alpha Lipoic) Acid, Cetyl Alcohol (Plant Derived), Glyceryl Stearate Citrate (Vegetable Derived), Dimethyl MEA (DMAE), Polysorbate 20, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C Ester), Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Dimethicone, Allantoin, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance.
Overall I’m really happy with the Firming DMAE Moisturizer. I have my eye on a few cleansers that I would like to try once I finish up one more from my skincare stash.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
