A Gluten-Free Skincare SolutionSeptember 17, 2015
Although I love almost everything about Fall, there is one thing that changes as the weather gets cooler that I’m not a big fan of! As the temps drop, I notice that my skin gets a bit more difficult to manage- I need to moisturize it more frequently with more emollient products and it still tends to look dry! And no matter how busy I get with my kids, this blog or life in general, I always try to do what I can to ensure my skin looks its best! After all, it’s one of the first things people notice when you meet them! That’s why I was so excited to have recently had the opportunity to check out derma e® skincare. What’s amazing is that this line features gluten-free products that are effective at nourishing the skin and creating a gorgeous, youthful complexion. One thing that sets this skincare line apart from other brands is the customized dermatological evaluation that helps pinpoint the best products for your particular skin conditions! Oh, and if you’re following a gluten-free lifestyle (as so many of us do), this line is ideal, as all of their products are free of gluten! #ICANTWHEAT
A Gluten-Free Skincare Solution
Here is how it works! You take their derma evaluation!
You answer seven easy questions about your age, skin type, skincare concerns, etc.
And then the system finds products that are most suited to your skincare issues!
The four products that I received (based upon my derma evaluation) are the Age-Defying Antioxidant Night Creme, the Purifying Youth Serum, the Evenly Radiant® Dark Circle Eye Cream, and the Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Glycolic Scrub!
I’ve been using the products for several days now, and I’m very impressed with the quality of these products. I’m also impressed with how well the system found a collection of amazing products customized to my skincare issues. Let me share some details!
Age-Defying Antioxidant Night Creme
All products in the Age-Defying line feature advanced formulas designed to visibly diminish multiple signs of aging! For example, these products feature an antioxidant blend (that includes Astaxanthin and Pycnogenol), which works to make the skin look younger and healthier. This night creme is extremely moisturizing and I love the way my skin feels in the morning- super supple and fresh! It’s a nice, thick cream so it’s definitely appropriate for bedtime only, when you want to deeply nourish the skin and revitalize it! I’ve been using this one for a few days now and my skin really drinks up this cream! I love to slather this on right at bedtime, after cleansing and toning the skin!
Purifying Youth Serum
The Purifying line of skincare products was specifically designed for oily skin types. They feature a powerful detoxifying blend of components, which helps to draw out toxins and boost the skin’s defenses. This line is also free of synthetic fragrances and is safe for sensitive skin! The Youth Serum is a fabulous product with a lotion-like consistency. It is not oily and does not make the skin feel or look greasy, which is something I definitely appreciate. It is absorbed very quickly into the skin! I also absolutely love the scent- it’s not a strong or powerful fragrance, just a very subtle pleasant scent! I use the Serum right after cleansing and toning. I love that it may be layered under moisturizer or makeup!
Evenly Radiant® Dark Circle Eye Creme
The Evenly Radiant line works for all skin types. I love that it specifically targets uneven skin tone and discoloration by using a Skin Brightening complex! It really does brighten the skin and makes the under-eye area much more radiant and luminous! I’ve always had dark under-eye circles, but I have to say this Dark Circle Eye Creme really does make a difference in brightening up my under-eye region! This product also helps to diminish the look of dark circles, fine lines and puffiness! With two young kids at home, I don’t often get a fabulous night’s sleep, so finding products that help to make me look well-rested (even when I am not!) is a never-ending goal for me! This product does just that. I place a bit of the creme on my fingertips and gently massage it into the under-eye region.
Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Glycolic Scrub
The Anti-Wrinkle line of products is suited for dry, oily and combination types. Its main objective is to reduce the look of fine lines, skin imperfections and big pores. With Vitamin A in the products, the Anti-Wrinkle line is effective at making skin look healthy & youthful! The Glycolic Scrub cleans the skin deeply and definitely makes my skin look & feel cleaner than ever! It is a thick scrub with tiny exfoliating particles that feel wonderful on the skin. Once you finish using the scrub, you can immediately notice the softness & smoothness. I simply massage some of this scrub onto my face in circular motions and then rinse it off.

It sounds like a terrific product. I’m always looking for new products for my dry winter skin. It’s a nightmare.
Yes, the Winter is not kind to my skin! 🙂
But these products totally help! Thanks for your comment, Rena! Have a fabulous day!
Since I have extremely dark circles under my eyes no matter what I do, the undereye cream looks like it could really help me. I never knew that there needed to be gluten free skin care, but I guess it makes sense.
Yes, the undereye cream really does help a lot! Don’t forget to use the coupon code if you’re ordering something! 🙂
Thanks for visiting, Amanda!
I love the variety they offer, when fall hits my skin is really dry. I suddenly have to give extra TLC to my skin and hair. I will be ready this season.
Yep, I totally understand. I’m in the same boat! Thanks for visiting, Mimi!
Wow! It’s amazing to think that gluten is in law up too. I know I’ve stopped using most make ups for other ingredients but I never considered gluten being an issue.
I’m definitely loving this product line! Thanks for your comment, Kristi!
I have so many little brown spots from the sun and I have dark circles under my eyes. These products are for me! Will have to try them.
Yes, these products might be great for you! Thanks for your comment, Wendy!
Looks like a great product…. as I am older (middle age now) my facial skin is much more dryer – especially in the winter months – thanks for sharing!
Yes, it is a fabulous product line! Thanks for stopping by, Clare!
i think it’s great that the ENTIRE line is gluten-free! 😀
Yes, I love that too! Thanks for commenting, Andi!
These all sound super nice. Trying each one out would be awesome. They all sound great for a healthy skincare routine.
Agreed! My skin looks fabulous after using the four products I tried!
Thanks for visiting, Liz!
Fall and Winter is terrible on my skin. These sounds like wonderful products to try out.
Yes, my skin needs extra attention during the colder months! Thanks for your comment, Michele!
what a great product… it sounds to be really awesome.thnx for sharing
Of course, Nazma! Thanks for visiting!
These look like really great quality products. No matter how much sleep I get, or how much makeup I wear I always have dark circles so I’m hopeful this will work for me.
Totally relate on the under eye circles! It’s hard to get good sleep on a reliable basis when you have kids! 🙂
Thanks for visiting, Kelly!
I absolutely love taking care of my skin. I’m always on the lookout for products I haven’t tried before. My mum would love this range!
Definitely tell her about it, Sophie! Thanks for visiting!
This looks like it would be safe to use on my sensitive skin. I didn’t know until today that there was even gluten in skin care products and I wonder if that’s what I sometimes react to.
Definitely something to look into! Thanks for your comment, Jaime!
Sounds like awesome line of skincare products! I wish they are available in my country 🙂
Thanks for visiting, Maureeen! Where are you located?
Definitely needing that anti – wrinkle scrub! The whole bunch would be awesome to try for awhile! See if they work on my skin.
Thanks for the introduction!
Thanks, Colette! I’m really happy with how they are working on my skin!
i never thought about going gluten free with skin care… this is awesome
It’s something a lot of people don’t realize! Thanks for your comment, Aaronica!
Thanks for sharing. I have friends who are gluten intolerant and I love that there are products out there that they can use… like the ones you shared above!
Yes, it’s a great thing to be able to complete the gluten-free lifestyle!
Thanks for visiting, Rachel!
I think the Gluten free craze is taking over the world! I’d like to try the Purifying line as I’m really struggling with adult acne. It’s not fair! At the same time I want the Anti Aging because I’m struggling with that, too. Sigh.
Don’t forget to enter the giveaway and you might win some free products! Also use the coupon code if you purchase anything! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
It’s kind of surprising how many skin care products in the first place use gluten! So it’s nice to see a gluten free skincare brand like this!
Yes, it is a nice surprise! Thanks for your comment, Kisa!
i didn’t even know there was such a thing as gluten free skin care! It makes sense! My skin gets a little out of whack as the seasons change too:-(.
If you want to try a few products, be sure to use the coupon code to save!
You never realize that gluten is in so many things. I can’t imagine how hard it is for people with gluten allergies.
True, Stephanie! It’s hard to believe how many things have gluten that we don’t even think about!
Thanks for visiting, Stephanie!
One of the positives of living in a hot, humid climate is that my skin doesn’t get so dry. But living in a third world environment my skin is constantly clogged with dust and dirt and grime.
But I recently read about a scrub and moisturiser you can make yourself using coconut oil and sugar and I’m really keen to try that. Gluten free and I have the ingredients in my kitchen cupboard!
Thanks for visiting, Sam!
