Was a lifesaver when I started using this sunscreen over a year ago, but The formula seems to have altered slightly (again!?) and now it leaves a whiter cast irritates my eyelid skin, causing them to itch and swell. I am not sure what ingredient is causing this reaction, but it sure is making me sad. :(



Moisturizers -Derma E -Derma E Scar Gel

The label says Scar Gel but this needs to be relabeled as Holy Grail Healing Moisturizer for sensitive skin/acne-prone/oily skin.

I have searched far and wide with 3 shoe boxes full of abandoned moisturizers because my skin reacts badly from 19 different oils and silicones. My skin loves watermelon seed oil but hates every other oil. I finally settled with this and it's healing up my skin well. Before this Scar Gel, I used to use Cerave in a tub for my moisturizer but I realized that the coconut derivative like ceateryl alcohol was giving me blakheads and more sebaceous filaments. I had to stop that and I noticed a significant change when I started treating this gel as a moisturizer.

It has a pleasant gel like consistency without leaving a sticky residue. It has a fresh cooling effect most likely from the panthenol. My skin feels really calm and soothed everytime I put this on. For my dry skin friends out there, you would need something more moisturizing than this. This gel is mostly composed with humectants (glycerin) and 1 soothing occlusive (allantoin) which is ideal of normal, oily, sensitive and acne-prone types.

I suffer from PIE (post inflammatory erythema) and rolling scars so I need a moisturizer that has soothing actives. This gel has 3 actives that are soothing and healing - panthenol, allantoin (keratolytic effect) and onion extract. If you want to know more, you can always search these ingredients on google then type "skin ncbi" to view academic peer reviewed articles. This is just a nice way to know and understand how these actives work as valid confirmation.

I use this in conjunction with mildly irritating actives like retinoids and AHA to treat my scarring. As well as a monthly 30% Glycolic Peel. My atrophic scarring are significantly better when I use these in combination. Most likely it would take another few months for the texturing to be completely gone but I am very happy with the results. By itself, I doubt that this gel will soften scarring or it would just take a very long time to see results. Combination therapy always yields the best results when it comes to reversing deeper types of damage.

This "moisturizer" could benefit people who suffer from acne and other types of inflammation because the ingredient list are composed of bland and basic ingredients (Aweeeesssomme). While providing 3 soothing actives that won't cause irritation. Highly recommended! Will raise hell if they change the formulation or go back to the original or discontinue it. I just wish it comes in a squeezable tube or pump instead of the damn unsanitary cosmetic jar. That's my only con otherwise HG material here folks!

EDIT: OH this review is for the new formula without the essential oils. (Much better IMHO)

Moisturizers -Derma E -Hydrating Night Creme (formerly named Hyaluronic Acid Night Creme per C.S. at Derma E)

I purchased the original product (not the new formula) a couple of years ago and I swear the little jar lasts forever. It’s too heavy for me to use on a nightly basis so I only use it when my skin is really dry and needs a heavy moisturizer. It absorbs very quickly and it has never made me break out.

The last time I used this, I felt a slight stinging that went away quickly so I left it on and went to bed. I woke up the next day to burn marks on my face. My eyes have scaling patches underneath and the side of my face looks like I had a bad glycolic peel. I didn’t attribute this to the moisturizer and figured I must have had a bad reaction to something. The following night I went to use this moisturizer since my skin was so dry and chemically burnt and it instantly turned my skin bright red and I felt like my skin was on fire.

I cannot believe such a gentle cream burned me so badly. I would think that even if a product was past its shelf life, it would just be weaker or less potent than when it was fresh. Regardless of what caused the change, I’m tossing it. 2 years old or not, no one should have chemical burns from a hydrating creme.

Scrubs -Derma E -Essentials Microdermabrasion Scrub

This is a very, very nice scrub. Yes, it has that Lemon-Pledge-y scent to it, but by using it before I wash my face, I've eliminated that problem (I can tolerate it for the short time it's on my skin). When I saw that it had pumice in it I thought it might be harsh, but it's quite smooth and the scrub particles are miniscule, so it exfoliates thoroughly without injuring the skin. I remove it with a linen washcloth and wash my face afterward, and my skin feels as smooth as glass. I'm not a jar-o-phobe, so I don't mind the packaging except that it's heavy and can be slippery if your hands are wet. After having used almost the entire jar, I started having one or two huge, painful, cystic blemishes popping up on my face within a day of having used it (and I haven't broken out in at least 10 years). Since I've changed nothing else in my routine, this must be the culprit. In the interest of complete disclosure, I must admit that I tend to scrub way too hard with manual exfoliants, so the fault may be mine. At any rate, this is a great product, but it's not for me, and I will not repurchase.

Skincare -Derma E -Vitamin C Intense Night cream

This is a great moisturizer for use as the last item in one’s skincare routine. I first read about it on Amazon where it has very good reviews. It did not break me out or cause any reaction. I have oily skin and a little goes a long way. I use it after my Shiseido Benefiance softener and Corsx Snaill essence. I always wake up to smooth skin. I will definitely buy again. I gave it 4/5 on packaging because dipping fingers in the jar is unhygienic. They must consider providing a spatula in the future.
