Today I am writing a review on some Dermalogica products I received.
I received 6 different products and I will explain exactly how I used them all and my thoughts on them. Here are the products I used.
- Special Cleansing Gel
- Daily Superfoliant
- Phyto Replenish Oil
- Active Moist
- Hydrablur Primer
Let me explain to you that the day I started using these products I had a few minor breakouts all over my face. I have used these products for 5 days now and my face is all cleared up!
First I started with the Precleanse. When I started to use it the first thing I noticed was the smell. I LOVED the smell of it. It smelled very therapeutic. It’s a strong, but good smell. The name ‘Precleanse” says it all though. It is just that. It is simply the step before the actual cleanse. Obviously my face didn’t feel 100% clean after using it but it definitely took off the makeup perfectly! This is like a makeup remover, the oiliness of it sticks to the makeup and takes it right off.
After the Precleanse I left my face damp and applied the Special Cleansing Gel. I put a little under a dime size amount into my hands and rubbed it onto my face in circular motions for about a minute. Then I rinsed it off with warm water. My face felt incredibly clean! I can honestly say I have went through so many cleansers trying to find the right one for me and this one here tops them ALL! Usually I have to clean my face 2 or 3 times with other cleansers to get all the makeup off but using the Precleanse and Cleansing Gel worked perfectly. A little goes a long way with this Cleansing Gel. Once this bottle is out I will definitely be back for more.
So this next step and the one after are my absolute favorites! After the Special Cleansing Gel I left my face a little damp and my hands wet as per instructions for this next product. The next thing I used is called Daily Superfoliant. This product is a dry product and looks like ashes. Which was something I have never seen before so I was pretty excited to try it! I put about a half a teaspoon amount into my wet hands and rubbed them together and it makes a paste. I applied that to my face in a circular motion for about a minute. I could definitely tell right away after rubbing it in that it was working its magic. I almost didn’t want to stop rubbing it in, it was that good. After that I rinsed off my face with warm water and dried my face with a towel. My face was as soft as a babies bottom! No freakin’ joke! This stuff is definitely my most favorite face product I have probably ever used. Every night when I go to wash my face I have been excited to use this again. I feel like it truly keeps my face clear of acne and keeps my pores clean.
I then applied 4 drops of the Phyto Replenish Oil to my face and neck. It felt absolutely amazing especially after using the Daily Superfoliant. This product really hydrated my skin. After washing my face, my skin can get really dry and using this was perfect for that. Another great thing about this, is that it doesn’t clog my pores. Before this I used Bio oil. This is definitely pricier than Bio Oil, but it is honestly worth EVERY cent. I thought Bio Oil was the best of the best but after trying Dermalogicas Phyto Replenish Oil, I am addicted to the way it makes my face feel. I feel like I have a mix of dry and oily skin and this really worked well for that. Another fun thing about this is that the bottle is actually glass. It feels really fancy and I love that feature about this product as well.
For the next step I used the Active Moist moisterizer. I used about a dime size amount. I rubbed that all over my face and neck. This moisturized my skin making it feel hydrated without feeling heavy. I must say I used a little more then I usually do with most moisturizers because I feel like using just a little doesn’t spread as easily. After wearing it overnight my face still felt moisturized the next day. It last forever and doesn’t clog my pores. Definitely a must have for a girl like me with skin that can get dry super fast.
Last is the Hydrablur Primer. I don’t use this primer before bed, but I use it before I apply my makeup. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! I put just a little on my face before applying my makeup and it keeps my makeup on literally all day with the perfect matte finish! I normally use a drug store primer. Which no surprise there this one is better. Usually after halfway through the day I have to use oil absorbent wipes to wipe my face because it gets so oily with makeup. But with this primer it does not and I have not had to use those wipes since using this product. I was pleasenty surprised how long my makeup lasted with no oiliness. Definitely a must have.
Out of all the products I used let me tell you my favorites and and my least favorite. The one that is my most favorite is the Daily Superfoiliant! I honestly will probably use that till the day I die. I am literally obsessed with it and the way it makes my face feel. My second Favorite is the Photo Replenish Oil. I feel like using that after the Daily Superfoiliant is the perfect combo for my skin and made it feel so much softer and more clear. My last favorite is the Hydrablur Primer. It is great for all makeup lovers with oily skin like myself and really makes my makeup last all day! I can’t get enough of it. My least favorite is probably the Active Moist moisturizer. Don’t get me wrong it’s great and works like a charm, I just didn’t like how much I had to use at one time so it probably won’t last as long. I didn’t have a big container of it, so I can see it getting used and running out pretty fast.
All in all these Dermalogica products have proven to me that they are very efficient and work amazing, especially when being used together. I will definitely be purchasing more products from this company, and can’t wait to try some of the other products they offer. I am sure they are nothing short of amazing just like these ones I have tried.
Do you use any Dermalogica products or any of these ones that I mentioned? If so what are your favorites and what do you like most about them? Tell me your thoughts in the comments!
