For those of you that aren’t already familiar with the iconic brand Dermalogica, then we’re about to transform your whole skincare game. Creating professional-grade skincare since 1986, Dermalogica is all about creating skin solutions that really work. From their iconic Daily Microfoliant to their Biolumin C Serum, this is the brand that covers every skincare product, concern, and solution that you could possibly think of, for noticeable results, no matter your skin type.
We’ve tried and tested their bestsellers to help you decide what you need to get your hands on first…
One of the first and most iconic of Dermalogica’s products is the Daily Microfoliant. With over 2000 five-star reviews, this unique, polishing powder transforms almost any skin type. When mixed with water, this rice-based enzyme powder works to microexfoliate the skin, refreshing the complexion without any irritation – meaning it’s suitable for daily use. Formulated with a brightening complex of licorice, rice, and grapefruit to even skin tone, rice bran and extract to exfoliate, and salicylic acid to dissolve excess surface cells, this exfoliator is like the reset button for your skin. If there’s only one thing you buy, make it this.
If you’re looking for luminous skin bottled, then this is it. The Biolumin-C Serum will transform your complexion. The high-performance serum features a blend of ingredients that work to brighten, firm, and reduce the signs of aging, whilst the hydrating texture leaves skin feeling soothed, comfortable, and glowing. Enriched with lactic acid to smooth and retexturize, chia seed oil to help reduce inflammation, and a brightening vitamin C complex, this serum will make pigmentation literally disappear. Your skin will be left feeling firm, fine lines and wrinkles reduced, and protected against free radical damage. This is a must-have for prepping your skin to face the day.
Calm Water Gel
As the name might suggest, the Calm Water Gel is a chill-out for stressed, sensitive, or dry complexions. The ultra-soothing gel formula transforms into a water-like texture on application that sinks into the skin and alleviates any irritation, dryness, or redness. From the Ultra-Calming range, this hydrator has been formulated with a blend of soothing, hydrating ingredients such as apple fruit extract, glycerin, cactus pear stem extract, and a dual hyaluronic acid technology. If your skin is feeling thirsty, tight, or dehydrated, then this is the one for you.
Clearing Skin Wash
Want to keep breakouts at bay? Then you need the Clearing Skin Wash. From the Active Clearing range, this foaming cleanser has been specifically created with oiliness and adult acne in mind, working around-the-clock to control breakouts and clear excess oils. Formulated with a blend of blemish-busting ingredients including salicylic acid, an antibacterial agent, anti-inflammatories, and skin-soothing saviours, this is a go-to for healthier, clearer skin.
Blackhead Clearing Fizz Masque
If, like me, you’re still suffering with acne and breakouts post-teens, then we’ll let you in on a secret… The Dermalogica Clear Start range is a secret hero in Dermalogica’s collection. It is a must-have for targeting breakouts and blackheads, and the Blackhead Clearing Fizz Masque is something that we cannot get enough of. This unique fizzing formula works to clear the pores and banish blackheads for good. Ideal for oily skin and those suffering from breakouts, the blend of skin clearing ingredients makes this a miracle worker. Sulphur helps to eliminate bacteria by clearing excess oil and congestion in the follicle, kaolin clay helps to soak up excess oils and purify the skin, whilst apple fruit extract makes sure that the skin doesn’t feel stripped or tight. Try it out for yourself to find out what the hype is about.
A hero for good reason, PreCleanse is a must-have for any skincare obsessive. This iconic, deep-cleansing oil is the go-to for melting everything off your skin at the end of the day. Developed as the first step in your double cleansing routine, the blend of oils helps to melt away excess sebum, sunscreen, makeup, and pollutants, allowing your second cleanse to penetrate deeper and be more effective. Suitable for any skin type – yep, including oily – this cleansing oil will transform your skin. Oh, and it smells amazing. Got oily skin and not convinced? In this case, like for like makes a right, meaning that the gentle oils in this mix actually help to remove excess oils and balance oil production, all without clogging the pores.
Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, when it comes to your daily skincare routine, an SPF is non-negotiable. Granted, finding the right SPF can be hard, but we’re going to end that search with the Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50. This firming, protecting moisturiser helps to hydrate the skin and increase elasticity, all whilst providing broad spectrum SPF 50 protection. The mid-weight formula strikes the perfect balance of feeling hydrating but not greasy, blending smoothly into the skin for a flawless finish. For long-lasting hydration, protection against damaging rays, and healthy skin, this is the one for you.
For me, face mists are a nice-to-have and not an essential – that was until the Antioxidant Hydramist came into my life and truly changed my mind. This ultra-refreshing mist has taken my skincare game up a level. Enriched with a blend of antioxidant ingredients that help to create a shield against free radical damage, whilst also providing an extra layer of comforting hydration. You’re never going to want this bottle to leave your side.
