I Tried Products From Korean Skincare Brand Derma:B and This Is How It Went

Derma:B is a multiple award-winning skincare brand from South Korea. Their products are created with one vision in mind: reliable, long-lasting hydration for the skin.

As I have very sensitive skin and eczema that may flare up anytime and anywhere, I have to take extra precautions with the kind of products that I use. Yes, all the ladies out there with sensitive skin, you are not alone.

Will these products work? I tried out three of their products, so let’s take a look at how they work!

#1 Mild Moisture Body Lotion (S$28.90, 400ml)

The first product is their Mild Moisture Body Lotion. It is a white coloured bottle with a grey pump with Derma:B’s trademark teal logo in front.

You know how some products are labelled “Fragrance Free” but when you test them out, they actually smell of everything else? I’ve had enough of being emotionally cheated by products like that, so the first thing I did was that I immediately brought it to my nose to check whether there’s any sign of fragrance. And to my relief, there was none.

Notice how it says “6 Non-Added Formula” at the bottom? If you’re wondering what that means, they refer to six different kinds of harmful additives that are not beneficial for the skin. The six ingredients that they have excluded from the product are: fragrance, parabens, phenoxyethanol, mineral oil, colourants and ethanol.

My first impression of it was that it is extremely lightweight, and also very easy to blend. You just need a little pump to cover the areas on both of your hands completely. Remember, a little bit goes a long way. After blending it out for a few seconds, you can feel your skin instantly hydrated and the best part is that it does not leave a sticky feeling that I dislike.

Even after an hour of application, my hands still feel very moisturised and soft.

#2 Daily Moisture Body Lotion (S$28.90, 400ml)

Next, we have the Daily Moisture Body Lotion.

This product is not fragrance-free but I don’t hate it. In fact, I’m a little obsessed with how it smells like baby powder.

This product has “5 Non-Added Formula”, omitting ingredients such as: parabens, phenoxyethanol, mineral oil, colourants and ethanol.

So here’s me testing the product out for the first time.

I was pretty impressed because even though its formula is slightly thicker compared to the Mild Moisture Body Lotion, it blends really easily and absorbs really quickly into my skin as well.

Plus point for this product: it does not leave your skin feeling sticky.

However, after a few minutes of application, the skin on my right hand started to itch a little and began to redden. However, this may just be the case for me, because it went away after awhile too. So don’t be afraid to test out this product!

#3 Mild Moisture Milk Oil (S$24.90, 200ml)

Last not definitely not the least, I tried the Mild Moisture Milk Oil. It is relatively the smallest bottle out of the lot, and it has a slimmer body. Again, with the grey pump and their logo in the front.

This product is also not fragrance-free. I was expecting the same baby powder smell again, but sorry to disappoint you if you are a sucker for baby-smelling products. This milk oil does have a little hint of it, but not entirely. It is kind of a mixture of baby powder and almonds? At least, that is how it smells to me.

This product is also labelled “5 Non-Added Formula”, which means it is also excluded from parabens, phenoxyethanol, mineral oil, colourants and ethanol.

So here’s me testing the product out for the first time.

As you can see, this product is extremely watery. It comes out really easily, so if you aren’t too careful, you will pump out a lot more product than intended. So go in lightly, because just a little bit goes a long way.

This product takes a longer time to blend, at least for me. Since it’s oil, it is naturally more watery than the other two. So you will need to spend a few more seconds than you did for the others to blend it out completely. Although you will need a longer time to blend out the product completely, it absorbs much quicker than the rest.

Compared to the rest, this will leave your skin feeling a little sticky. However, it is not too overbearing. I personally hate feeling all icky, but the amount of stickiness it leaves on my skin is still acceptable. On top of that, my skin looks really glowy after using it. After all, it’s oil.

The verdict: I definitely recommend Derma:B if you have sensitive skin or are dealing with eczema. Over the years, I have used many different types of body lotions and moisturisers, but I didn’t really find a brand that really suited my skin perfectly. I wouldn’t say that Derma:B is THE one for me, but I really like their products so far. They have other products available too, and you can find them at any Guardian store.

I think my favourite product among the three is the Mild Moisture Body Lotion. I like how lightweight it is, and compared to the milk oil, it is a lot more easy to gauge the amount I want to apply without having excessive product piling up on my hands.
