Treatments (Face) -Dermalogica -Phyto Replenish Oil

on 8/17/2018 6:17:00 PM

Just way too scented from the essential oils for my liking. I find its a "dry oit" and is absorbed very quickly that I can not use my clarisonic silicone smart profile head to massage my skin without it drying. So I would recommend if you are looking for a dry oil. I'm gonna stick with my tried and true Argan oil.

Treatments (Face) -Dermalogica -Sound Sleep Cocoon

Smells lovely. Has a nice silicone-y feel when applied and leaves skin moisturized. No adverse reaction. Just doesn't do anything except smell good for a moment to justify the price. Will not repurchase.

Scrubs -Dermalogica -AGE Smart multivitamin thermafoliant

Returned. This broke me out every single time I used it. The rest doesn't matter.

Moisturizers -Dermalogica -UltraCalming Calm Water Gel

on 8/16/2018 1:04:00 PM

This is a solid performer. I've been using this moisturizer over the summer and it has many great qualities.

I didn't think a gel would be moisturizing enough. I was wrong. It turns to a watery consistency as soon as you start spreading it. It absorbs very nicely and just leaves my skin feeling moist/moisturized. I don't know that this will be sufficient when the weather turns colder. Even if it doesn't work out for winter this is still a keeper. It keeps my skin comfortable under primer, heavy coverage all day foundation, powder, and setting spray. Not bad. It doesn't sting and is very comfortable on my sensitive skin.

I use this primarily in the morning, occasionally in the evening which also worked. I just prefer something more in the evening.

Packaging is standard and sufficient. No problems. The scent is dreamy to me and dissipates quickly.

My only complaint: I do think Dermalogica's prices too high. However, most of the products I have tried have really been nice. Buying at Ulta at least gets me points I can cash in towards future purchases and the products are priced high enough to qualify for free shipping. I will buy again.

Moisturizers -Dermalogica -Active Moist


I was drawn to Active Moist mostly due to all the plant derived ingredients. The beautician at my salon whittled it down to just 2 moisturizers that she thought were suited to my skin type, and based on the ingredients list I settled on Dermalogica. Having just stumbled upon the long-forgotten tube I'd stuck in the back of a pile of half used products, I thought I would finally do a write-up on this.

My first attempt at applying it was on a morning - bad idea, I found it did not sink into my skin at all and just sat there, making any sunblock applied over it an impossible task. I found this unusual as the product is oil-free right? Thinking I had perhaps applied too much product I removed with a makeup wipe and applied even less this time around but the effect was the same, albeit less pronounced.

The next time I applied was on an evening, at the end of my cleansing routine. This for me was more ideal as I had no other products to apply over this and could let it sink in (or not as in my case) overnight.

What I liked about Active Moist the most, apart from ingredients, was the fact that it did not cause any adverse reactions - breakout, itchiness etc. It hydrated well - very well in fact, but I do feel more could be done to improve the formulation so that it doesn't sit on the skin and absorbs more readily. Reading the other reviews though I seem to be in a minority so please read my experience with an open mind.

For reference I used this in May 2016
