Dermalogica Daily Resurfacer
I got to try this recently for about a week and a half of continual daily use so I thought I'd share my thoughts on this before it slips my mind :roll:
The Dermalogica Daily Resurfacer comes as a can that contains 35 individual little pouches of product, each with an attached foam disc. You squeeze the little pouch and the product is transferred up to the foam disc. Then, and after washing your face first, you simply massage the foam disc over your face. Once you're done, you leave it on and apply your usual serums/moisturisers. It doesn't sting and the application doesn't feel uncomfortable, although sometimes if you do it too quickly (or perhaps too long - it could happen more as the foam dries up a bit) the foam disc can bend back momentarily exposing the plastic pouch that it is connected to underneath. This doesn't hurt but I found it annoying, though I also found that if I massaged in slow movements this never did actually happen.... Anyways...
I think this did actually provide some brightening to my face immediately after, as most good exfoliation would. It also made my face pretty smooth. The product does contain hydroxy acids (though I have not been able to find an exact list of ingredients) but logically also has additional exfoliation "oomph" due to the foam disc. One thing I really liked about the "general" list of ingredients is that it contains green tea extract and also rooibos extract (both great antioxidants, but rooibos more so) and since this is a leave-on product, you get the benefit of those overnight.
So is it good then? Yes it is - I think it's a very good exfoliant. But, it's also quite expensive for what it is. I would buy this ONLY for use while traveling - I think it'd be super convenient actually - otherwise I think it's too expensive for me to justify. If I had an unlimited amount of money.... now that would be a different story ...... read more about Dermalogica on our Forum
:.REVIEW.: Dermalogica Barrier Repair
I have been trying a sample of this recently and have to say that I love it!
Barrier repair is recommended for 'environmentally sensitised skin'. I have been having some allergic breakouts recently so thought I would give this a try. It is an anhydrous (does not contain water) silicone based gel. I have been using it on the weekends only- I tried it once at work but when I am rushing around it tends to make my oily skin very very shiney. It calms and softens my skin, and appears to reduce blemishes. Overall I am impressed although wouldn't be able to use this everyday- but still maybe worth purchasing to control breakouts and soothe skin etc.
Thanks! ...... read more about Dermalogica on our Forum
Any thoughts on Dermalogica Super Rich Repair?
Hello there! :-)
I am currently using Dermalogica Super Rich repair. I have VERY dry and sensitive skin which is also prone to milia. Before I switched to Dermalogica Super Rich repair, I was using 2 moisturizers concurrently - one oil-based, and one water-based. And still my face felt tight after half an hour or so. Hence my decision to try something really heavy.
This product is simply the BEST I've used thus far. It is a heavy cream, and I apply every night before I sleep (my room is air-conditioned and thus drying). It leaves my skin slightly shiny, and it takes some time for my skin to absorb it. But after it is absorbed... the feeling is really good!
I highly recommend this product. However its rather pricey though :( Thats the only ...... read more about Dermalogica on our Forum
