Treatments (Eye) -Dermalogica -Age Reversal Eye Complex

foto

Started using this on the 13th around my left eye area and the Ultrasmoothing eye serum on my right to be able to compare the difference - both were sachet sizes and both lasted me roughly the same amount of time. Whilst I didn't like the Ultrasmoothing for various reasons (please see my seperate review for it), I did notice better results using the Age Reversal one. The biggest difference was how much brighter my eye area looked on the left side, compared to the right. The ingredients list is almost twice as long and includes good stuff like Retinol - possibly the only ingredient that can actually reduce fine lines. Did I see any reduction in fine lines? Not at all! It would take several months of daily use to see that kind of effect, especially as the concentration of Retinol in here is not that high as it is in face serums (for obvious reasons). Add to that ceramides, peptides and other good things and you have a winner! My only slight dislike is that I found it a bit greasy. It took at least 15 minutes for the oily layer to sink in and that's keeping in mind I only used the smallest amount each time. I do have oily lids, so I reckon if you have a dry eye area, your skin will probably drink this straight up and you won't even notice the texture. Overall a nice eye cream but I will probably keep searching for my HG.

Treatments (Eye) -Dermalogica -Ultra Smoothing Eye Serum

This past week I've been applying this around my right eye, whilst using the 'Age Smart - Age Reversal Eye Complex' around left eye area to be able to compare the difference. I'll write up about that one seperately but first I'd like to share my thoughts on this one...
I started using on the 13th of this month and just got to the last drop in the sample sachet this morning. The very first thing that hits me when using this is the smell - it's a very medicinal herbal smell that borders on alcohol. Had to check the ingredients list...turns out it's Eucalyptus oil! For a eye serum designed specifically for sensitive eyes I cannot figure out for the life of me why such an irritating essential oil would be added!? And it's not a small amount - the serum practically reeks of it!
Then comes the texture... by far the stickiest eye product I've ever used, this one doesn't absorb well and leaves a tacky, shiny layer around my eye. Despite the Vit C and Licorice (both fantastic for brightening) my eye area didn't look any more radiant or 'awake' than it did when I first started using it. Normally brightening ingredients have a pretty instant visible effect on my skin and eye area, but that's not been the case with this one.

Happy to report I didn't get any milia or negative reaction whilst using this, but at the same time I saw zero benefits. Granted a sample is not going to yield any discernible results on fine lines or other eye area concerns (that would take months of use and treating the area), but you can always get an idea just by how your skin responds to a product. In this case I can't say there was anything about this product or initial results that would entice me to invest $55 for the 0.5 oz full size serum. However the Age Smart eye complex seems to be working somewhat better...will write up on that seperately once I have worked my way through to the end of the sample.

Lip Treatments -Dermalogica -Age Smart Renewal Lip Complex

For about a month I've had a tiny sachet of this that's good for about 4 or 5 uses and not got round to using so I decided to use it all up this weekend. First of all...this stuff is mega concentrated! Each time I've squeezed the teeniest amount out of the perforated top of the sachet and literally a dot size has done the trick, it really is one of those cases of 'a little goes a long way'...which means I don't find it expensive at all considering how long a full size tube would last. If anything I'd probably be worried about the product expiring before I can use it all up!
There's no nasties in this as far as I can tell and there is an 'aroma/flavor' added to this which gives it that sweet slightly fruity fragrance, however the ingredients listing doesn't specify exactly what it is. Also no SPF in this, although there is Vit E pretty high up in here which is a strong antioxidant - perfect for use under a SPF!

The product itself is surprisingly effective. My lips have been moisturized and remained supple ever since I started using this late on Friday. Normally I apply a lip balm or lip mask and forget it's on, but not this one, I can't stop pressing my lips together to feel how soft and silky they are. I seriously half expected a sticky mess with this having Castor oil so high up the ingredients listing, followed by Avocado oil, but no this is anything other than sticky! It does wear off gradually when drinking throughout the day but despite that I haven't had to reapply more than once - usually by about 3pm in the afternoon, after that just one application right before bed and I'm all set for waking up to smoother, softer and unchapped lips in the morning.

Will I repurchase? Absolutely! At the very least I'm going to stock up on a bunch of these in sachet size (easily available on e-bay) as they are perfect for weekends away, one sachet lasts more or less exactly a weekend, no trying to re-pack and getting home to find it's leaked over other cosmetics, simply use it up and dispose of it.

I love this better than the oil version, I love the massage action since its a little stiffer so needs a bit more work. Gets rid of all make up and love the plant based oils. Only thing is that it is so expensive and there are so many other options out there now, so whilst I loved every minute of this, I will not repurchase since there is no value for money. Hence 3 lippies. If the price was more reasonable, I would repurchase and recommend. If you are willing to splurge, you will not be disappointed.

Treatments (Face) -Dermalogica -Skin Hydrating Booster

I like this product but don't love it. I'm always looking for products to add moisture to my dry, oily skin, without causing breakouts. This product mostly does the trick, but I wish it was a little more moisturizing. I mix it in with my facial moisturizer, both day and night, to give a little extra moisture boost, which I think it does. Occasionally, I apply it directly to flaky, dry patches, and while it seems to help in the very short term I find those spots quickly become flaky again. I think my skin is slightly better for using it, so I continue to buy it, but if you're really needing a strong moisture boost this product may not be enough.
