I received a free sample of Derma-E Vitamin C Serum from Social Nature in exchange for a review.
I was really glad to receive the Derma-E serum in the mail instead of getting a voucher and trying to track it down in the store. With Covid-19 cases on the rise, I’m trying to avoid spending too much time inside stores. It’s really frustrating to receive a coupon and then running around to several stores trying to find one that sells the product.
So I’m very happy I received the Derma-E Vitamin C serum the easy way – in the mail!
Cream versus Serum
As the name might suggest, Derma-E Vitamin C Serum is a gel-like serum.
Most of the facial skin care products I use come in creams.
I’m pretty loyal to the Olay brand since I was in my twenties. Loved those old commercials with the ageless women! That sold me on Olay. You can probably guess why this commercial was my favorite!
What does the box say?
Let’s start off with the information on the Derma-E Serum’s package.
Vitamin C is in the product’s name. That has to be good! In fact, it’s 100% stable Vitamin C and that might support collagen health.
It also has Hyaluronic Acid.
Derma-E promotes an ethical beauty commitment to your health and the envornment. Eco-ethical skin care.
It is GMO free, cruelty free, 100% vegan, gluten free, soy free, and recyclable.
Unless you’re planning to eat the serum, I’m not sure that we care about some of those claims!
Derma-E Vitamin C serum contains no parabens, no phthalates, no formaldehyde, no petrolatum, no sulfates, no mineral oils, no artificial colors, and no artificial fragrances,
No bad stuff, just the good stuff hitting your skin!
What can Derma-E Vitamin C Serum do for you?
The claims for Derma-E Vitamin C Serum are that it might help support collagen health, minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of uneven skin tone.
The hyaluronic acid plus the Vitamin C boost hydration to guard skin against environmental stresses. It also helps minimize the appearance of aging. The Derma-E Vitamin C serum also has Aloe and Vitamin E that help moisturize the skin.
Overall I like the Derma-E Vitamin C. I like the ingredients and the claims. These are things that I look for when buying skin care products.
Press a pump at the top of the container to squirt serum on your finger.
And here lies one of the issues I have with the product. That little squirt is very energetic! A little serum hits my finger and the rest lands on the countertop or floor!
Fortunately, a little goes a long way! I gently rub it into my face and it feels good. It’s not greasy and doesn’t irritate my skin. No itching, no rashes.
The big issue I have with this product is the, uh – how shall I put it nicely? – odor.
It smells weird. A laboratory or medicinal smell. Fortunately, it’s not overbearing and the odor goes away a few seconds after rubbing into my skin.
You know how the product claims there’s no artificial fragrances? Well, I think they should have made an exception and found something to make it smell nicer! Ha ha!
Generally speaking, I prefer unscented skin care products on my face.
Derma-E Vitamin C Serum can be used in the morning or evening. I’m using it as a night cream.
Where to buy Derma-E Vitamin C Serum?
The big go-to for buying things online is Amazon, and Derma-E is available there.
(Disclosure: I’m an Amazon associate. If you click the link and make a purchase, I’ll receive a small commission for the referral.)
It’s also available on Amazon Canada and I saw it on Vitamart (not an affiliate). It sells for around $30.
I also saw it on the London Drugs website for $34, but to be fair they also had a $4 coupon code to use if buying it. That offer is subject to expire anytime without notice.

I don’t like the scent, but overall I like the Derma-E Vitamin C serum. This is definitely something I’ll rotate into my bedtime routine.
