Hi there, my darlings! So, 2018 was a really rough year for in many ways and 2019, unfortunately, is not going much better, to be honest. Needless to say, I've been dealing with a whole lot of stress, which manifests for me in one of two ways--I don't get much sleep and I break out horribly. It's been years since I last had to deal with these but lately, I've been afflicted by these painful, little whiteheads, particularly on my cheeks and around my hairline. I mean, I used to have a few blackheads on my nose and an occasional pimple around that time of the month but this is a whole different ballgame. Ugh. I knew I had to do something quick and thankfully, a very timely package arrived for me from derma e. Inside, a couple of products which are helping me battle these annoying breakouts. Let's take a look, shall we?


A daily cleanser that removes built-up oil and debris to help unclog pores, promote clear skin and prevent breakouts.

Gently remove built-up oil and debris, help unclog pores and clarify skin while reducing redness and irritation with this daily cleanser. With an Anti-Blemish Complex of natural ingredients Tea Tree, Willow Bark, Rosewood, Lavender and Chamomile shown to be very effective on blemish-prone skin, this formula delivers natural antibacterial and antiseptic properties leaving skin purer, clearer and healthier. Regular use will help balance your complexion and your skin's own oil producing capabilities to help reduce the occurrence of breakouts. Will not leave a residue or irritate the skin. 

For me, personally, I rely the most on cleansers and scrubs when it comes to skincare and handling breakouts. I don't have the patience for multi-step skincare routines and I honestly feel that maintaining squeaky clean skin is the most essential step to clear skin. As such, I've been looking for a deep cleansing face wash for my nightly showers that would help me take off all the grime, pollution, makeup and yes, (some) stress of the day. So far, I really like this one. Scented naturally with the minty goodness of tea tree oil, this face wash leaves my skin feeling truly clean. Yes, it is a bit drying, especially in the harsh Canadian winter and the necessary stifling indoor heating, so I always try to moisturize before I go to bed. My skin hasn't cleared up completely but then again, I've only been using this for a few days but it has started to feel better and clear up to a certain extent. I'm going to keep using this and report back--follow me on Instagram for that update!


This acne blemish treatment serum helps to fight against blackheads, breakouts and cystic acne.

Formulated with Salicylic Acid plus a unique Anti-Blemish complex comprised of Tea Tree Oil, Willow Bark Extract, calming Lavender and Chamomile, this acne-fighting serum helps to unclog pores providing clearer and healthier-looking skin.

Enriched with:
  • Salicylic Acid: a beta hydroxyl acid that helps skin cells shed more easily.
  • Anti-Blemish Complex: comprised of Tea Tree Oil, Willow Bark Extract, calming Lavender and Chamomile helps to unclog pores and reduce redness

I have often found myself avoiding serums in the past for one simple reason--I tend to get hot really quickly during the night so anything that aggravates that, I avoid like the plague. This serum, though, is surprisingly light, quite easily absorbed into the skin and I can apply it directly to problem areas for a more targeted approach. Again, it smells not at all some chemically-enhanced products I've tried and actually is quite pleasant with the combination of tea tree oil and lavender--if you're sensitive to fragrances, this line should suit you quite well with their natural aromas.
