Skin Care Regimen: Derma-E Review



I'm a true believer in that your skin is your best foundation. When you take care of your base everything looks great on it afterwards. Your skin is truly so important so taking care of it should be one of your top priorities. While taking care of your skin includes eating healthy and definitely using sun screen this should also include products that help your skin be it's best. I recently got these products from the beauties at Derma-E to review. I've used it a few times and if you follow me on Snapchat you may have seen them in action. 



This Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask made my skin extremely smooth and soft, as it said it would do on the packaging, which is a plus for me! I mean how often does the labeling depict what it states?! Even my husband noticed a difference in the clearness of my skin and their was a visible difference in the visibility of my current pimples which had subsided. I feel like some of the toxins definitely were removed because I have cysts on my chin (eww I know) & these suckers are deep y'all and even they came to the surface (Hallelujah). The activated charcoal opens up your pores and removes toxins from deep within your skin. For all of us that would love to wish our blackheads away this product, though not ridding them, definitely left them much less noticeable. The product did leave me with a rather red slightly tingly face after the application, but nothing a great moisturizer couldn't help with. Currently using this and I'm surprisingly liking it as well. I loved the consistency of the product and that a little went a long way. 



Now, let's talk about scent which was surprisingly not as bad as some other exfoliating products. It rinsed off rather easily, didn't take too long to dry, and the smell was pleasant. This Purifying Daily Detox Scrub also had a light scent of apricots and the removal was quick and easy nothing short of water and a washcloth. I love this exfoliating scrub and I have found that it's best used 2-3 times a week. I'm sure with these added to my routine now my skin will become visibly better with what I've seen thus far. I'm definitely going to use this a lot before special days/nights out and as for the daily exfoliator definitely using that before my makeup application for sure as it preps your canvas and leaves you with a fresh faced look. An amazing thing about these products is that their whole line features a multitude of skincare items that are all natural (ingredients) and affordable. These products are going to continue to be must haves in my beauty routine as they are a great pre-step to my makeup application because no one wants to apply makeup to an uneven canvas.

A Pep In Your Step Outfit






Seriously are you as obsessed with these espadrilles as I am? They are literally my favorite dupes! I definitely love high-end stuff, but sometimes designer can be a bit much on the pocket so I'll definitely take a similar great quality dupe for not as big of a price tag. This is an outfit you can throw on with a quick button down and a pair of jeans to look "together" even though you really don't even have to try. As a mom this is such a huge plus because I barely have time for myself as is with a baby on hand. What's your favorite fashion and/or makeup dupe that you have ever discovered?

Hope you have an amazing week.
XOX,
