#noticethelotus at Target in 2016

Happy New Year and I hope your January is going well. How many trips have you made to Target already this year? I do my best to stay away because I always spend too much money there. You can be honest with me when I make my confession to you. When I do go to Target I make sure I have plenty of time because I like to look at EVERYTHING! They are always bringing in new products and I don’t want to miss anything. Now who will admit to that too?

The Beauty Section

If for some reason I am desperate for time then I am sure to only visit the beauty section of the store. Any beauty blogger knows it is a struggle to not visit these isles. On my last trip to Target I noticed a new line of skin care. I absolutely love anything to do with skin care and wanted to buy the whole line the moment I saw it. I had heard of derma|e through a couple of beauty blogs and recently tried their Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Creme. I was very happy with the results and wanted to try ALL the products. I stood in front of the derma|e display for quite some time and took in all of the options available. I decided on the Firming DMAE Eye Lift. I mean what 41-year-old doesn’t need help in the eye department. No really, introduce us please.

The Firming DMAE Eye Lift has some pretty awesome ingredients to help combat aging and your eyes looking like droopy balloons. The InstaLift Goji Berry glycopeptides give your eyes lift and tightens the delicate eye area up. It also contains some other great ingredients that help smooth away your crows feet.

I used the Firming DMAE Eye lift for 14 days and in fact, noticed a difference. I am not great at taking before and after pictures but I won’t lie to you. My crows feet were less visible and I can’t wait to see what continued use will do to my eyes. I can’t tell if the skin around my eyes is actually lifted yet but I will keep using it and see what happens. I would absolutely recommend this product, priced at $24.95, to be included in your skin care routine.


Next time you head over to Target make sure you hit up the beauty aisle and #noticethelotus because derma|e has arrived!


Thank you Brandbacker and derma|e for providing my samples. All opinions here are mine. 

Dermae Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Creme

Do you ever dread the colder seasons because of the havoc it wreaks on your skin? Do you find yourself looking for THE best lotion to take away your ashy skin? If you answered yes to either of these questions then you are in for a treat. You know I love a good skincare product and I always tell it like it is.  I got to try Dermae Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Creme and was pleasantly surprised with my results.

My Skin

I have what I call hybrid skin. My face is usually very oily. This is not a bad thing because I am sure I will age less noticeable than some. My chest and torso are normal, meaning I don’t usually need to moisturize them. My arms, legs, back, and feet need some TLC in the moisture area. I tend to notice this more in the colder months. I can actually SEE the dryness in my skin. My hands probably suffer the most and is where I need extra TLC. I normally use a brand from the drugstore shelf  and can usually see decent results.


Using Dermae Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Creme

As soon as I opened my jar of Dermae Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Creme I doubted it was going to work on my thirsty skin. The formula is very light and fluffy. I thought there is no way this will penetrate my skin and give me lasting moisture. I applied it to my feet first because I always test on my toughest spot. I slathered it on like there was no tomorrow. Bad idea! In this case, a little goes a long way. I had enough to slather on my whole leg and thigh. I continued by massaging it into my heels. I applied socks like I usually do and went on with my day. Now normally I would need to apply again before bed to keep my feet soft but I felt my heels and they didn’t need another application. I do have a love/hate relationship with my feet so I do apply moisturizer to them daily. I really want baby soft feet! Dermae Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Creme doesn’t make them baby soft but it certainly makes a difference.

I wanted to be able to really see a before and after difference so I applied the creme to one of my hands while using another brand on my hands. I can’t say that it reduced wrinkles on my hand but it was so much softer than the other hand. It looked and felt smooth and supple.

Why You Should Use Dermae

There are many reasons you should use Dermae Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Creme but I will highlight the reason I will continue to use it.

  • Cruelty, Gluten, and GMO free-means it’s good for you and our friends on the planet.
  • 100% Vegan-means our healthy friends can use it too!
  • Contains 100gms Vitamin A-means it encourages cell renewal in order to keep your skin looking young.
  • You can use it on your whole body, even your face-means less $ to spend on other creams!
  • You can purchase at most Walgreen’s for about $12-speaks for itself.

I would recommend this creme for anyone wanting youthful looking, moisturized skin. You can purchase at your local Walgreen’s Be sure to stop here and grab a coupon first.
