In a few months, I will be 41. It is a hard number to write when I really think about it. I remember when my mom turned 40 and thinking to myself, “wow that is old”. Now, I am 40 but with different challenges than when my mom turned 40. She was dealing with one in college and one in high school. Here I sit with a full-time job, a child in elementary school, and one in diapers. It is a different world out there which means different stresses. Busy days, sleepless nights, and constant never stopping tasks really take a toll on my body and my skin.
I realized that I could not just float through life and hope my skin keeps its radiant glow. I needed to find a moisturizer that would help me look young even though I may not feel it. The search began for a product that would fulfill my goal. I tried all kinds from discount drugstore brands to high-end skincare counter brands. I searched high and low and my wallet really reflected that. I was feeling like I would never find products that matched my skin goals and my requirements for a safe environment. Then a surprise happened.
I was at the Mom’s Meet WOW Conference this month to meet with other like-minded moms about products and blog writing. It was the end of the conference and giveaway time. As I held my tickets closely, I was hoping I would win one of the amazing prizes offered in the mix. A MATCH! I won! I could not believe it. I was so excited that I jumped up and ran to the prize table not knowing what I received. That is when I was handed a bag of gold…I won a prize pack from Derma-e.
I took my bag of gold to my room and began educating myself on the products. I learned that Derma-e is one of the largest natural facial care brands in the US. They attribute their success to honoring their customers with products that promote healthier looking skin and business ethics that promote a healthier world. That right there won my heart. Their 100% vegan, cruelty-free formulas do not contain parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates, petrolatum, mineral oil, artificial colors, gluten, soy or GMO’s. Now that’s honest-to-goodness skin care that is in line with my requirements.
The Hydrating Day Crème with Hyaluronic Acid feels great on my skin and has “plumping” power that really makes my skin look hydrated. It also helps with the fine lines that are starting to show. Enriched with anti-aging antioxidants Green Tea, Vitamins C and E, and soothing Aloe, this formula helps defend skin from free radicals and the effects of the environment. What else do I love about this moisturizer? It is 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free, GMO-free.
I had never really used a night cream but undertsand the reason behind it. It is a heavier lotion and will work “overtime” for your skin. The Hydrating Night Crème with Hyaluronic Acid delivers maximum hydration while helping diminish the signs of aging for softer, smoother, younger-looking skin. As always, 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free, GMO-free.
I am such a fan girl for these products now! Me winning the raffle was meant to be and I am thankful for the opportunity to find a company that is working for a better world and better skin. Now it is your turn to try Derma-e.
