I Tried It: derma e Psorzema Line

*This post is sponsored by derma e and Brandbacker

Big on natural beauty over here, you know that much... I'm always looking to highlight brands that speak to me and what I need for my family. I have used derma e products before; I received their microdermabrasion goodness in last year's Whole Foods Hello Beauty bag. When Brandbacker launched a campaign for their Psorzema line, I'll admit I was interested... I know I'm not the only one who struggles with extremely dry skin (especially in the Winter months) but my bigger issue has always been with my scalp and finding a shampoo/conditioner that could relieve the CRAZY itching that happens when my hormones change (I can track it, it's been happening awhile now). If you're a reader then you know that over the past year or so, I've really tried to make sure that I'm bringing only the best/healthiest products into my home for our family. It's not always easy, especially if you're looking for a product that might require the medicinal benefits (of say, a dandruff shampoo)...

dermae e has just made me a very happy woman. To find a line of products, Plant Powered “Non-Prescriptions”, that works but is also natural, is a fine achievement indeed. The first day that I washed my hair, I could feel the shampoo in action, tingling it's way down to my scalp, doing its business. It cleanses, nourishes, soothes and de-flakes! The line is sulfate free- tar free- steroid free... all the things you may find in the name brand that had been previously used to calm my scalp down for a hot minute. Used along with the conditioner, my hair was clean and shiny and healthy looking and all the things that you want to see when trying something new. I'm truly excited that I was given the opportunity to try this line because I might not have otherwise picked it up, perhaps thinking that because its natural, it might not work... let me tell you, it does!

Even though the shampoo and conditioner were my main jam, I know that both the body wash and creme will be clutch at different stages of the game. When I was pregnant, my skin was the driest/itchiest it had ever been and there was no amount of lotion that could make it go away completely. Since a woman's body is ever changing, there is not doubt in my mind that whether it's another pregnancy or a hormonal change, I will likely need to sooth some majorly dry skin. 

I have a friend who does calligraphy for work, you know, using her hands... she doesn't have time for the dry, cracked hands that come from eczema and since I know/love her, I'm definitely going to send the Psorzema creme her way. She can keep it at her desk for when she's got to work and there won't be anything standing in her way.

In my humble opinion, if you suffer from rough skin conditions like Psoriasis and Eczema, but you don't want to put all sorts of chemicals on your body, I would most definitely recommend the derma e line; at least try it. You know it's 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free, GMO-free. That's quite a stack of "free"s to put your mind at ease.

derma e® can be found in over 16,500 retail outlets across the U.S. such as Whole Foods Markets, ULTA Beauty, CVS and more!
