Finding skincare products that actually give me the results I need has been difficult…very difficult, which is why I am constantly trying out new lines and techniques. Recently I’ve been using Dermalogica and I’m pretty happy with the results so far.
I wanted to share a few of these products and my experience with you in case you were in the same position as me and need some guidance.
I would consider my skin to be a bit more on the dry side which is why I opted for the dry skin kit. This kit comes with the Essential Cleansing Solution, Gentle Cream Exfoliant, Multi-Active Toner, Intensive Moisture Balance and Intensive Eye Repair.
The cleanser is light, scent free and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. My only issue is that I find it doesn’t remove my eye makeup as much as I would like. But overall a great cleanser for my daily morning routine.
The cream exfoliant is AWESOME! I don’t typically use products like these since I feel like it dries out my skin even more and truthfully never something I really thought I needed. With this product I only use it once a week- kinda like a treat for my face. It made my skin feel so smooth and refreshed! You only have to leave it on for 10 minutes – so it was great for me in terms of time.
The toner might just be my favourite product. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s a little spray bottle and that it’s actually fun to put on or because I can feel the tingle as it penetrates through my skin. But whatever it is, I love it. Again, I’ve never used toner in my life but I’m kinda hooked on it now. Using the toner after cleansing and before moisturizing really made a difference in the appearance and feel of my skin. It didn’t dry my face out, instead prepped it for the next step.
The moisture balance was creamy and not too heavy. A bit heavier than I would prefer to wear but once worked into my skin I noticed how refreshed and hydrated it looked. You really only need a little bit to completely cover your entire far, which was the mistake I made the first few uses. I particularly liked to use it under my chin and on to my neck and it cleared up a really awful dry patch in just days.
The eye repair was the product that impressed me the most. Over the past few months I’ve been noticing some strange business under my eyes. Could be the lack of sleep but regardless I was just not having it. I have to say, I feel much more confident after using the eye repair because it helped to brighten and even out my skin tone and decrease the puffiness under my eyes. After using this product, I am a firm believer in eye cream.
Overall I’m quite content with the results of the Dermalogica skincare line. With the affects of the winter months, this dry skin kit has really helped my skin breathe and feel refreshed.
Keep moisturizing kids!
