With the warm weather approaching, stores are showcasing their hottest swimwear designs, and Target is no exception.  Recently, they teamed up with the iconic Barbie® doll to create a body-positive campaign.  Target asked Barbie® to model new looks inspired by Target swimsuits. Barbie® not only obliged, but added three new body types: Curvy, Petite, and Tall, and expanded the variety of skin tones and hairstyles.

The two brands collaborated to motivate women to feel great about their bodies in their swimsuits, and eliminate body insecurities.  You can shop these new dolls and swimsuits in your size here.

Beauty Review: derma e Firming DMAE Eye Lift Crème

“One day, mainstream skincare formulas will look like the healthy formulas we make today.”
-Linda Miles, derma e co-founder 
August, 1984

  I’ve been a huge fan of derma e beauty products for about 6 or 7 years now, ever since I discovered them at a local natural foods store (shout out to Fresh & Natural Foods!) years ago.  I was drawn to their line by their passion for using nature’s ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals, and botanicals, to improve the condition of our skin and health.  Basically, I was sick of using products with so many chemicals that I was entirely unable to pronounce and wanted to actually know what ingredients I was putting on my skin and being absorbed into my body.  I absolutely loved their products, as they were gentle yet effective.

So, when derma e approached me recently to test out some of their newer products that are now available at Target stores, needless to say, I was thrilled.  I tried out their Firming DMAE Eye Lift Crème, which I’ve been using twice a day for about a month or so now.  I have to say, those pesky little baby 25-year old crow’s feet wrinkles that were creeping up seem to have recessed back, while the skin around my eyes looks firmer and smoother than before.  I’ve received numerous compliments on my skin in the past couple weeks, which I can only think is a good thing.

*Please note, while derma e offered me free samples to try and review their product, they did not offer me any additional compensation, and this is my 100% unbiased, honest-to-goodness review on their product.*

Firming DMAE Eye Lift Creme, via Target, $21.99

Let’s talk a little bit about why I like this eye cream so much.  It contains DMAE, a widely-acclaimed skin-firming nutrient, that is clinically proven to boost collagen for firmer, more resilient skin. It also contains InstaLift® Goji Berry glycopeptides, which work to add further firming, lifting and tightening antioxidant power.  Then, these little bad boys known as advanced peptides, two of which are called Argireline® and Matrixyl® synthe’6® work together to soften facial muscles and synthesize new key components such as collagen, helping smooth wrinkles and discourage new lines from forming.  And of course, powerhouse Hyaluronic Acid infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture helping leave skin soft, smooth, tone and rehydrated.
