Eco-Friendly Brand Spotlight: derma e (GIVEAWAY)

Happy Earth Day! Today is a day to reflect on your impact on the planet we call home, and try to make better choices about how we treat our environment.

Over the years, I’ve received several messages from readers— as well as questions from personal friends— looking for skin care that’s natural, vegan, gluten free, and most importantly: affordable. I feel like it’s still difficult to find these types of products on the drugstore scene, but I recently discovered one brand that is doing their best to be beauty-conscious, health-conscious, and planet-conscious. What better day to feature them here on the blog?

Eco-Friendly Brand Spotlight: derma e | Slashed Beauty

derma e is a Southern Californian skin care brand that can be found in some drugstores like Walgreens, and Ulta. On the drugstore price spectrum, they’re in the mid-range (Although, I’ve been noticing a universal price rise among other drugstore skin care products, so I feel like derma e’s prices are pretty much the average now). What sets the brand apart is their doctor-developed formulas that not only promote healthy skin, but a healthy world.

Hydrating Eye Creme. One of the derma e’s best-sellers, this eye creme hydrates, firms and tones to combat puffiness, wrinkles, an dryness. It contains this season’s “it” skin care ingredient, hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the skin and helps it hold on to moisture.

Hydrating Mist. Also containing hyaluronic acid, this face mist helps you get a dose of moisture throughout the day. Containing antioxidants like green tea and vitamin C, your skin will get the nutrients it needs to stay feeling fresh and healthy with a smooth texture.

Microdermabrasion Scrub. This award winning scrub contains dead sea salt to help rid the skin of dry patches, but also reduce the appearance of acne scars and fine lines. The scrub helps heal free radical damage caused by environmental and genetic skin aging, as well.

Evenly Radiant Brightening Day Creme SPF 15. This daily moisturizer evens skin tone with vitamins C & B3, and provides full spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

Evenly Radiant Brightening Cleanser. I’m happy to report that aside from derma e’s other promises, this cleanser is also sulfate free, making it perfect for all skin types as it will not strip the skin of its natural moisture. Its balanced pH formula helps clear skin and make it glow.

Enter to win all of these products using the widget below. This giveaway is open to US residents only, and ends next Wednesday, April 29th at 11:59PM. Good luck, and Happy Earth Day!



  1. We don’t drive, we buy local and pass things on second hand whenever we can. Also I go meatless a lot.

  2. Not just for Earth Day but every day.. we try to conserve energy by turning lights off when not in use and unplugging appliances not in use. We also recycle!

  3. I have gotten rid of any product containing those little plastic “scrubby” beads! They are so bad for our lakes and oceans!

    1. Great job!! Yes, microbeads are terrible, I’ve done a few posts about them here to help others transition to more natural exfoliants.

  4. Wow..because of my mom I have been “green” for decades now. We do so so many things..all the typical usual things. Therefore, I will say for use we are eating more and more meatless meals. And, totally going GMO free. I only purchase products that have no animal testing. Grow our own organic garden. We are looking to going solar this year with our remodel..using bamboo flooring and the right appliances/water-heaters/..even a cistern for water.
    We try to add more every year.

  5. Reusable shopping bags, recycling, eco friendly beauty/personal care/household products and CONSERVATION. Conserve wherever you can. Thank you for the giveaway!

  6. This brand sounds excellent. I’ve been leaning toward all natural, cruelty-free lines. Bonus that it’s local. :]

    1. Great job! We don’t have a choice here since plastic bags have been outlawed in LA county.

  7. On our farm we recycle, repurpose and reuse when ever possible. Each year on Earth Day we plant a tree in honor of a loved one we have lost.

    1. Oh, and all our light bulbs and appliances are energy-saving, as is the new window we bought recently for our living room.

  8. I will have to keep an eye out for this line next time I go to Walgreens! Today and everyday I make it a point to recycle. I’ve also been saving energy as much as possible lately by keeping the tv off – I don’t watch much tv, but leaving it on as “background noise” is a bad habit of mine! I also have been walking to the store lately instead of driving, especially since the weather is turning nicer here lately.

  9. This is really great information! I absolutely love their bb crème, it’s amazing on my skin. It make my skin look soooo nice. It is the only foundation/bb/cc I’ve found that matches my in-between light and medium, ruddy skin tone. I just love how my skin looks with this on, I can’t explain it. And my skin is seriously oily and greasy, yet it’s not with this bb. I don’t even understand how that’s possible. I love it so much! 😀 It’s pretty awesome to know that it’s also such a fantastic company too!!
