derma e Review

I think Organic skin and hair products have been my number one gripe since getting crunchy. It is so hard to find ones that work for you and I had to change my mindset drastically. Everything I ever knew about skin and hair care had to be thrown out the window. Before being crunchy, I thought more suds meant more clean, but that is not true at all. I learned with cloth diapering that you want a low suds detergent, so you don't get build-up. The exact same thing is true with hair/facial/body products. All of those suds in traditional cleaners equal build-up in your hair and on your skin. Talk about clogged pores! All of the suds that I thought were helping me get clean, really did nothing great for my skin. I would always break out or get a red face after using facial cleansers with harsh chemicals in them! Once I went green, I learned the truth about health and beauty products, among other things.

I had always heard about derma e products and I have always wanted to try them. I have no clue why I hadn't! In my early green days I tended to stick to items I could find easily, and I had no clue what was legit and what wasn't. When I had the opportunity to review a product from derma e, I jumped for joy and screamed yes! They sent me the Tropical Solutions Facial Cleansing Gel and I could not be happier with this product.

This cleansing gel contains Tamanu, Papaya, Pomegranate, Green Tea, Aloe, Vitamins A, C, E and Acai. It rinses away all of your impurities to optimize skin health. I can tell you that after a few weeks of use, my skin feels much healthier. It is very gentle, with no suds. If you are like I was and insist suds are what cleans, throw that away! That is not true at all. Like I said, it took a lot of rethinking on my part to get that out of my head, but it is so worth it in the end. I love knowing that my skin has only natural products touching it.

In my experience using this, a little does go a long way, even if you cant see suds. Just add a pump to wet hands and slather it all over your face. I fell in love with the pineapple-papaya scent and how easily it rinses clean. The Tropical Traditions Facial Cleansing Gel left my face hydrated, unlike my old cleansers that dry my skin out!

The Tropical Solutions Facial Cleansing Gel is natural and certified Organic. It is also cruelty-free, paraben-free and very eco-friendly. I also adore that they post the ingredients right on their website.

Best of all? It sells for only $12.50 and you can find it at Whole Foods!
