How to Use
Rated 4.6 out of 5 stars
I decided to overhaul my skincare routine for the new year and purchased a bunch of Derma-E products. After testing them out for a few weeks, I thought I would share my opinions on the products. I rated each product based on their ingredients, effectiveness, wearability (how they apply and feel on the skin), scent, and packaging.
1. Ingredients +0.5
A good anti-aging serum should contain a retinoid and an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid). The Anti-Wrinkle Night Serum only contains a retinoid (retinyl palmitate) but it is the 9th ingredient, so it probably is in a higher amount. Unfortunately, Derma-E does not disclose the exact % or units/gram like with their other anti-wrinkle products. In addition, it contains plenty of antioxidants to help restore the skin and a few moisturizing ingredients.
2. Effectiveness +1
This serum does keep my skin moisturized with no irritability even when used around the eyes. I cannot comment on the anti-wrinkle part since that would take years to discover since I am using it for prevention and not treatment.
3. Wearability +1
Consistency of the serum is between a cream and a lotion, making for smooth application that absorbs completely. My skin doesn't feel greasy or dry after use, but almost like it has a slight silicone barrier on top even though I don't see silicone in the ingredient list. When I wake up in the morning, if it is more warm or humid, it can be slightly tacky feeling.
4. Scent +1
5. Packaging +1
Any skincare product that contains a retinoid and antioxidants must minimize exposure to light and oxygen (the air) to retain its potency. This serum comes in a nice glass pump to avoid product degradation and delivers enough product to cover the entire face in just 1 pump. After almost daily use for over a month, I still have more than 3/4 left so I imagine it will last a good 6 months or longer.
Overall I rate the Anti-Wrinkle Night Serum **4.5** stars, taking off 0.5 point for lack of an AHA and non-disclosure of retinoid concentration.
I generally use Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum nightly, applying before moisturizing. Ulta was out of it so I tried this. I've only been using it just over a week, but so far I am neither amazed or disillusioned with it. I don't think it works as well as the Olay and I do seem to have a few more clogged pores, although that may be from all the "mask" wearing I've had to do lately. I'll give it a little more time....
Derma E fan from LA
I have bought this 3xs now! I love the price point and a little goes a long way so it will last and the size bottle is perfect. I like that it's a pump and easy to apply. Most importantly it leaves my skin soft and non greasy (oily skin) and it pairs well with their vitamin C serum. You can layer it with other products and doesn't feel tacky or messes up with makeup. I can use this alone as a moisturizer at night, it's very refreshing. I'm only 30 so very little wrinkles for the most part, only around my eyes but it's minimal. I like that it's good preventative care.

Not sure what this is supposed to do - no visible results at all
Nancy from Undisclosed
A good foundation to my moisturizer. It leaves my skin softer than moisturizer alone.
Denise from Undisclosed
I love this product. My face feels so good and I truly believe after using several of their products I think my face is improving and doesn't look quite so wrinkled. Thank you so much.

Odella from Undisclosed
I can see a difference in my complexion already! - It seems clearer. I use it in the AM when I get up and PM before bed.
Michelle from Undisclosed
Works as hard as a serum AND moisturizer! This is so moisturizing and has helped smooth out my skin. Highly recommend!
Yolanda from Undisclosed
Love the super lightweight feel of this serum! A little goes a long way. Very absorbent with no after-feel.
Noel from Madison, WI
I have tried a handful of products now and this one is still my favorite!! It soaks into your skin quickly and smells nice. It has evened my skin tone, left my skin soft and diminished fine lines. Not sure I will he hooked on another product more than this one! Happy I found it.
Mariah from Undisclosed
MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE. I started using this serum a few months ago. I am 29 years old and never really had a consistent skincare routine and am beginning to get passionate about it as I realize I am nearly out of my 20s! I love how soft this makes my skin feel afterwards and has evened out my skin tone.
Jessica from Undisclosed
I love the thin consistency of this serum. It's a great prep for night cream, and has helped with fine lines and small dry patches.
Kelly from Undisclosed
I love the serum! I wake up and can see the difference with my fine lines with this product!
Randy from Raleigh, NC
It didn't do anything for me. No smell but the texture was odd. It doesn't absorb into the skin. I only use it now for my chest and body.
Avery from Undisclosed
I really like the serums and hope that this Anti-Agins serum will have positive results for me and my husband. I love the way it feels.
Aged for my age from Wichita, Ks
Loved it! Left skin feeling soft and moisturized, not greasy or oily.
I do believe skin is firmer.
Looking forward to evaluating long term use.
Emily from Undisclosed
I just started using this serum and I immediately saw results. Really happy with this one!
Chris from Undisclosed
Love love love - only wish I had discovered this sooner. My skin looks and feels so good.
Carla from Undisclosed
so far this product works good
Angela from Undisclosed
Nice creamy feel. Has a plesent smell, but more of a sent than I had anticipated. Don't know if it's making wrinkles disapear or not yet.
Wish it were the old formula from Providence, RI
I've been buying this for a while now, and I used to LOVE it, but the more formula had a much stronger scent. I may have to change serums because if it. I do love the face wash in the same line though. Tgis used to be the only serum/moisturizer etc that I could use reliably and routinely without breaking out. This serum's new scent is just ... a lot. PLEASE REDUCE THE FRAGRANCE!!!

Feels very moisturizing and nourishing to my skin.

carol b from washington
upset, that this has gone bad before its time. who will refund me then? it also has this horrid rancid smell to it as well.... sucks that I didnt get to finish my product .
Rebecca from Undisclosed
I think this does what it's supposed to do, but unfortunately it feels sticky on my skin. I like the anti-aging eye cream very much, and that does not feel sticky.
Brittany from Undisclosed
So glad i purchased this product a great addition to my skin care routine.
