Activated Charcoal Skincare Kit Giveaway

derma e activated charcoal skincare giveaway

If derma e looks familiar to you, it may be because I spotlighted the charcoal face mask in a recent favorite things post. A couple weeks after that, I got invited to host this giveaway through FitFluential. It’s the sponsorship scenario every blogger hopes for: A product you already love, use and promote now the topic of a paid post. Woop! derma e activated charcoal skincare giveaway derma e activated charcoal skincare giveaway

What I like about derma e

  • Products are paraben-free, phthalate-free, GMO-free, gluten-free, sodium lauryl sulfate-free, petrolatum-free, mineral oil-free and dye-free.
  • Products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free (never tested on animals).
  • Products are made with recyclable material.
  • derma e Purifying products are specifically designed for oily, active or “city-living” skin types (the infamous BP oil spill ain’t got nothing on my face).
  • The Purifying line is my favorite color. I’ll admit it, there’s a certain cool factor that I can’t help but attach to a skincare product that’s black (lotion rubs in clear though).

The Purifying skincare line

derma e activated charcoal skincare giveawayThe standout ingredient in the Purifying skincare line from derma e (which one lucky reader will win!) is activated charcoal. When carbon is infused with oxygen, an extremely porous surface is created that acts like a sponge, able to absorb 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities. I’m not a scientist so can only go by what I read, but it makes sense that something that’s been used to purify water for centuries would have similar benefits to the human body. I mean we’re over 60% water!

For transparency’s sake, the turnaround time for this sponsorship was a little tighter than I’d ideally like in terms of getting to try out the products. With skincare, I like to give products at least a couple months of regular use before I feel confident in my review of them because there are no instantaneous wonder creams out there—you have to give things time. So for that reason, I want to focus my review on the Purifying Oil-Free Moisturizer and the Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask. I’ve been using these two items for almost six months and feel 100% good about recommending them to you all (I love them!). The other products in the line have been great so far, but again, I’ve only been trying them out for a week and a half.

If I’ve just showered and am going to apply makeup, this is the moisturizer I use because it absorbs so easily into the skin and doesn’t leave any of that thick, sticky feeling on your face. I actually hide this from Joe because he loves it too and uses SO MUCH OF IT. Shhh don’t tell…

I try to use it once a week because my face feels uh-mazingly soft and smooth afterwards. This past weekend in Maine, Joe and I actually did masks while my dad was downstairs with his motocross buddies eating elk he’d hunted, slinging back whiskey and trading snowmobiling stories. Lollllll how’s that for opposing interests??
