Dermalogica | The Skincare Brand That Does It All

Skincare has always been a massive interest of mine and Dermalogica products, in particular, have always stood out to me. Everything from their simple yet iconic packaging to the constant rave reviews speaks to the skincare aficionado within me! They're definitely a more high-end brand with their prices roughly starting around the £30 mark but I'm very lucky to have been chosen to be a part of their new #skinfluencer programme! I was kindly sent a bunch of their products and have been testing them out over the past few months and today I'm giving you my two cents! 
Dermalogica Skincare Brand Review Blog Post
PreCleanse* | Cleansers are one of my absolute favourite things to try out and I was definitely lacking in the oil department so this came at the perfect time! It's formulated with Borage Seed, Kukui, Apricot Oils and Vitamin E which are all amazing for conditioning the skin. I love using oil-based products to remove makeup and this is one of the best I've tried in a really long time! The texture is a lot thinner than most cleansing oils which I really prefer as it doesn't feel heavy or awkward to massage into the skin. Another great thing about this is it emulsifies with water so it's extremely gentle and easy to remove. It smells amazing too! I can't recommend it enough! 

SkinPerfect Primer SPF 30* | This is such an interesting product and very different to anything in my collection. It's a hybrid product that can be used as the last step of your skincare or first step of your makeup routine. It's designed to smooth fine lines, brighten and prime and I can confirm it gives the most beautiful perfected finish to the skin. You only need a small amount and I love how it blurs pores and tones down shine without being overly drying/mattifying. It has quite a siliconey texture but it still feels hydrating which I love. The Pearl Powder gives a gorgeous subtle radiance and the fact that it contains SPF 30 and protects against UV light is just an added bonus! What's not to love? 

Special Cleansing Gel* | I've also been testing out this cleanser which has been such a dream in the mornings when I just want something quick and easy. This is a great option if you have combination/oily skin and you enjoy a refreshing gel as opposed to a balm/oil. I like to take a 10p sized amount and massage it straight into my skin and then add a touch of water to create a gorgeous silky lather. Don't be put off by the fact this foams as it's completely soap-free and non-drying! It uses Balm Mint to calm the skin, Lavender Extract to soothe and Quillaja Saponaria to gently foam and remove toxins and debris. I'm obsessed! 

Skin Smoothing Cream* | I'm not very fussed when it comes to moisturisers as long as they're hydrating, non-greasy and provide a good base for makeup. This is a medium-weight moisturiser that is perfect for balancing a combination/dry and possibly even an oily skin. It has a beautiful fluid texture that absorbs quickly but still leaves a hydrating layer on the skin. Lecithin deeply moisturises while Aloe Gel nourishes and Mallow, Cucumber, and Arnica soothe and hydrate the skin. There's also Grape Seed Extract and Vitamin C & E which are amazing for shielding against environmental damage and free radicals! 

Daily Microfoliant* | I can't explain how excited I was when I noticed this in my parcel! I've heard so many bloggers rave about this product over the years but I just never found myself purchasing it. It's an exfoliating powder that uses Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes to polish the skin whilst still being super gentle. It also contains White Tea and Licorice to help balance uneven skin tone. I tend to use this in the evenings and I just pour a small amount into my hands, add some water to create a paste and massage it into the skin avoiding the eye area. They say it can be used daily but I find two-three times a week is enough as it leaves my skin incredibly smooth and glowy for days!
