Dermalogica salon skincare at home with the new Phyto Replenish Oil
Dermalogica is one of the world’s best selling salon brands and a choice of skincare for not only professionals but consumers worldwide. How has it got such a cult following? Well, by means of its focus being firmly on the product rather than the packaging. Skin health has remained at its core through education and innovation. From the very beginning, Dermalogica products were made free of all the nasties and irritants that would affect our skin health. And so, 30 years on, find out why Dermalogica still remains at the top of their game.
Special Cleansing Gel £28 – This soap-free gel with calming balm mint and lavender extracts cleanses the skin thoroughly, while the natural Quillaja saponaria gently foams away any dirt and toxins. A pea size amount will be enough with no double cleanse required.
Charcoal Rescue Mask £38- Charcoal masks are great when your skin is feeling particularly congested, or as part of your multi-mask routine to really attack that oily T-zone area. This all-in-one charcoal mask not only works as a mask but it also detoxifies and brightens the skin. While most charcoal masks come in quite the thick consistency, this mask is applied thinly and dries quickly without crumbling. Volcanic ash, sea silt, bamboo extract and alpha hydroxy acids further accelerate skin brightening with dual action exfoliation. Not sold yet? Then maybe the Chilean wild mint (also in the mask) that refines your pores will win you over.
Phyto Replenish Oil £62- This new addition to the range takes a three-stage approach to replenishing the skin from the natural aging process and environmental stresses. Firstly, the phytoactives from Camellia and Tamanu oils help restore the skin’s barrier. Essential lipid blend that includes Chia seed oil smooths any visible lines and locks in hydration. Then finally we have Sunflower, Rice Bran and Rosemary extracts that act as an antioxidant and shield skin against free radical damage. With a handy dropper attached to the top of the bottle vs a pipette, just the right amount of oil comes out with no wastage, and it smells great!
Mrs J’s Verdict – Dermalogica is the perfect brand for all skin types, with products to support dry skin, acne skin, aging skin etc. I’ve really enjoyed using the cleansing gel, especially after a full day with a full face of makeup. Usually, post cleansing my makeup, I still need to do a double cleanse to make sure that every last trace of makeup has been removed. Not with the Dermalogica cleansing gel – it was so efficient that one round was all that was required! The mask – I love charcoal masks and what I noticed about this one was the slight cooling effect (not stinging) that it had on my skin. It really felt like it was working and due to its consistency, didn’t take long to take off and was dry in less than seven minutes. My skin feels super soft and clean and not too dry. The one stand out point is that I really like is the fact that this mask is in a toothpaste-like packaging making the content easy to squeeze out and there will be no wastage! Finally, the oil, the newest product to the range. It smells amazing, dries easily and is quite light, enough so that you could wear it under your makeup prior to your face cream with spf being applied!
