If you have discoloration from sun damage these products will help to fade the hyperpigmentation caused by the over-exposure that may have occurred during the warm months of summer. Here are a few of my favorite products from this collection:

It uses Glycolic and Lactic Acids to efficiently remove dead skin cells and to reveal refreshed glowing skin. Derma E uses stable Vitamin C that won't oxidize before use, and the peel has a light and refreshing citrus aroma. You simply apply a thin layer to freshly cleansed skin and leave it on your face, neck and décolleté for about 5 minutes and massage it into skin to help break up the dead skin cells. Rinse skin thoroughly and then behold your clean, soft, smooth and radiant skin. Some people have reported a light tingling sensation, but I have not experienced that.

  1. These all sound outstanding but my eyes are especially on the cleansing paste. I used up my favorite Pixi one and want another product like it. I need to buy this and an eye cream that sounds wonderful.

    1. Their vitamin C range is my favorite among their collections. I think that you would love their cleansing paste, and they also have a wonderful brightening eye cream from this collection! Their prices are so reasonable, and they also have tons of online sales too!

  2. Derma E's Vitamin C collection is among my very favorites!

    1. Mine too! I have really loved each product that I have tried from this collection, and apparently they are adding a few new things to it! I can't wait to see what they will launch!
