For my long-time readers, you’ll know that one thing I have talked about multiple times when it comes to skincare and beauty is eye creams. So when I got the opportunity to work with derma e® and try their Firming DMAE Eye Lift Crème I jumped at the chance.
First, let’s talk about how this whole opportunity came about. To me, the start of a new year means new beginnings and trying out new things. The people at derma e® think so too, which is why now at the start of 2016, the brand can now be found at Target. You might be wondering why the title to this post is “#NoticeTheLotus” – well, that’s because the logo for the brand is a lotus. So while you’re trying to get a fresh start to this new year, why not try out this healthy skincare brand and #NoticeTheLotus at your next outing to Target?
In case you don’t know anything about the brand, they are a healthy skincare brand that has used modern science to create what they call “Green Chemistry”. According to the brand,
derma e® pushed skincare forward in a new direction by fusing powerful vitamins and plants together with modern science – we called it Green Chemistry. Continuing to be always aware, derma e® adheres to the highest ethical standards when it comes to animal welfare and our impact on the planet.
The results – derma e® built a passionate following in the natural products industry and beyond, always aspiring to make highly effective, premium skincare formulas but with cruelty-free green chemistry.
derma e® was nice enough to send me some samples of their products and a full size tube of their Firming DMAE Eye Lift Crème and I immediately got to trying it out.
I love the packaging of this eye cream. It is slim and compact so it would be very convenient to take along with you while traveling. Nothing’s worse than bulky packaging that is so impractical for bringing along with you! I also love that there is a tip to the squeeze tube, making it even more hygienic.
Now, onto the product itself. It is a thin, white cream and not oily or greasy in the slightest. It is smooth to apply and blends extremely easily. It also absorbs into the skin immediately, which I find perfect for in the mornings when I’m going to be applying makeup shortly after my face creams. There’s no worry of my concealer or powders not applying well under the eye because of a greasy product or because the cream hasn’t sunk in yet. No slipping and sliding of makeup here!
Here’s what the company says about the eye cream:
Visibly lift, firm and tighten the delicate eye area while smoothing crow’s feet with this doctor-developed, multi-action eye treatment crème that contains advanced, clinically proven natural ingredients. DMAE, a widely-acclaimed skin-firming nutrient, is clinically proven to boost collagen for firmer, more resilient skin. InstaLift® Goji Berry glycopeptides add further firming, lifting and tightening antioxidant power. Advanced peptides Argireline® and Matrixyl® synthe’6® work together to soften facial muscles and synthesize new key components such as collagen, helping smooth wrinkles and discourage new lines from forming. Hyaluronic Acid, also known as nature’s moisture magnet, infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture helping leave skin soft, smooth, tone and rehydrated. With continued use, this pro-collagen and pro-elastin blend leaves the delicate eye area firmer, smoother and younger-looking. 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten-free, GMO-free.
So does it work? I’ve only been using it for about 10 days and while I haven’t seen my eye area becoming super firm, it could be because my only real issue with my under-eye area is some fine lines and dark circles. But, I am in my late 20s and my goal is to prevent developing issues i.e. losing elasticity in the eye area in the future. What I have noticed though is that my under-eye area is a lot less dry than it has been in recent weeks, so this is a total win for me!

So far, I’m really enjoying using the Firming DMAE Eye Lift. It absorbs super quickly, is perfect to wear under makeup, and has been providing serious hydration to my eye area. So next time you’re at Target, do yourself a favor and #NoticetheLotus!
