derma e Very Clear

My skin's been acting up lately, so I was excited to try derma e's latest offering--the Very Clear Skincare collection.

The line of products blends herbs like Tea Tree, Willow Bark, Rosewood, Lavender and Chamomile to soothe and heal breakouts. I tried the spot treatment to see if it could tame my blemishes.

I love tea tree oil as an acne treatment, but it's way too harsh to use undiluted. Even my go-to tea tree treatment, Desert Essence Blemish Touch stick, can be drying to sensitive skin. The derma e Very Clear Spot Blemish Treatment is formulated in a base of water and glycerin rather than alcohol so it doesn't dry out or irritate skin. The cream is non-greasy and absorbs quickly and did a great job of clearing up my breakouts.

The Very Clear line also includes a cleanser, scrub and moisturizer. I tried some samples of the cleanser as well and found its creamy formula an effective way to cleanse my skin without stripping or drying. It's also good to know that the Very Clear Blemish Spot Treatment scores as a low hazard on the EWG Skin Deep Cosmetic Database. And as always, derma e products are free of parabens, pthalates, sodium lauryl sulfates, petrolatum, mineral oil, artificial colors and are pH balanced, 100% vegetarian and cruelty-free.

Looks like I found a new favorite skincare treatment item!
