Derma E Evenly Radiant Brightening Serum

August 12, 2015
 Brightening Serum, Natural Skincare

I usually have at least a few serums in rotation at any time in my skincare routine because I truly believe they're the best when it comes to tackling specific skin concerns. My skin concerns probably vary based on the time of year but one ongoing battle I'm always fighting is fading the freckles on my cheeks and keeping new ones from forming so I'm always on the lookout for brightening products that address this concern. Recently I started using this derma e Evenly Radiant Brightening Serum.

Brightening Serum, Natural Skincare

My Thoughts: The serum is clear with a thick gel-like texture and no discernible scent. It has a nice feel as it goes on and dries to a smooth satin finish. I was able to integrate it into my skincare regimen without any irritation or inflammation to my sensitive skin. However this product is formulated for normal to oily skin and it's been fine for summer but I doubt I could use it during the winter months when my skin becomes drier as sometimes even now I have to add a little extra moisturizer when applying my cushion compact when using this serum. A few of the ingredients like niacinamide, licorice root extract, vitamin C and arbutin caught my interest since they are proven skin brighteners. After a few weeks of using this serum my skin does appear more even in tone and brighter. If there were a more hydrating version of this serum, I'd be all over it since it's a a good natural product, well priced and has delivered on the brightening. 

derma e Evenly Radiant Brightening Serum is available through the brand's website
and major retailers like Amazon, Birchbox and It's actually on sale for $19.49 at Amazon!

  1. This product sounds interesting. I usually like to use serums that are a but more moisturizing and that are formulated for dry skin so not sure this would be the best serum for my skin.

  2. Derma E is a really solid brand it seems like. I really like their ingredients lists and their price point. Thanks for this awesome review Rowena! Also, your photos are beautiful!!

  3. I usually don't rotate serums, and I probably should! And I haven't heard of this brand before, Rowena, so TY for the heads up:)

  4. Sounds like a good product to try for those who have skin type like you have.
    Was wondering if it'll work fine with sensitive skins, too

  6. I use serums as well and I'd buy this one first because it's affordable, and 2nd because it has a pump dispenser. It's good that you are happy with this product, thanks for sharing with us, Rowena! Have a nice day! xo

  7. Sounds pretty good, it seems to tick all the right boxes.

  14. Seems to be a very efficient product! Great review.


  15. Nice review. seems to be a good product !!

  16. Nice review, dear! Good price indeed :D

  17. I am dry skin so I'm not sure if my skin will love this but I do like the brightening effect and another bonus is the reasonable price. Am I the only one whose skin gets drier with age? I swore I was combination in my 20s and now I bounce between dry and very dry. :-(

  18. It sounds like it is worth a try. Thx for the review, Rowena. Happy hump day.

  19. I do not use a serum as part of my skincare routine. Should I be? I am so hopeless when it comes to beauty products.

  20. nice post and lovely blog, kisses!

  21. This is interesting! I have yet to try a serum, but I definitely want to! Thank you for sharing this review!

  22. I have heard of this brand and wondered how it was. Price is very reasonable for sure, will have to look into it for myself. Thanks !!

  23. Such a great review. I don't usually anything like this I probably should though :)


  24. I’ve been on holiday for the past month and have really been
    looking forward to reading your blog when I got back- it definitely didn’t
    disappoint! xx


  25. I have so many skin concerns, I wouldn't know where to start! I have to use some medication that makes my skin react badly to sun but at the same time it is so hard to avoid sun where I live, because every day is a sunny day. My skin has really been acting out lately and I'm not sure should I call it dry, combination or oil...the definition changes every day.

    This serum sounds lovely, I think it is great that it is gentle to the skin, but I would actually like my face to be a bit darker. You're right about this serum perhaps not working so well in the Winter....our skin needs special care during cold times.

  26. Ahhh, I'd want the more moisturising version, too :(

  31. Sounds like a nice product! I have trouble finding serums that work all year round, too. Winter can be brutal on the skin.

  32. Sounds great!
    Have a nice evening!

  33. A serum that encouraging skin tone to become more even sounds ideal, especially as my skin is less so around my nose at the moment. I love how bright/fresh your photography consistently is by the way Rowena :)

  34. My concern is manterner my skin hydrated and control lines, currently use a serum that leaves me satisfied with the results, because there are days when the skin of my face is tired, and the next morning I feel renewed and refreshed ! This product is interesting and the price seems accessible.

  35. I really like the sound of this and will have to look out for it, lovely review! :D xx
