We are back with a Dermalogica review on their new Ultra Calming Water Gel and Barrier Defense Booster. If you have dry sensitive skin then definitely read on because these products might be right up your alley.
Created in 1986 by Jane Wurward because she wanted a skincare line that aligned with her teachings. Since there wasn’t one that met her standards she created a product line that has good ingredients to promote healthy skin. Another great thing about Dermalogica is that every product is made here in the US.
Ultra Calming Water Gel
The Ultra calming water gel is lightweight gel moisturizer that helps with dry skin. Upon application, you can instantly feel the hydration due to the gel consistency. It doesn’t take long for the water gel to sink into the skin.
This formula is great for someone with sensitive skin, like myself, and/or dry skin. I say this because I live in Oregon, where our weather is forever changing. One day we can be in the 70’s and the next day instantly drop down to 30’s/40’s- these drastic changes always take a toll on my skin.
Barrier Defense Booster
The Barrier Defense booster it’s a face oil that is used for sensitive skin to bring back moisture into the extremely dry skin while reinforcing the barrier for future irritations.
I’ve been able to keep my dry skin at bay with my usual skincare routine but living where I live- the weather is very bipolar, which I mentioned above- this actually happened this year.
I replace my normal face oil and moisturizer with these two items, but I do not use them separately. I take the ultra calming gel and throw a few drops of the barrier defense booster on top in the morning and at night.
My final conclusion is that the Ultra calming water is a great moisturizer with a decent price point. However, the Barrier defense booster is a great product and it definitely does work, but with the price point of $75 dollars, I don’t know if it is necessarily worth it- because I love using face oils and Ido think some of my normal favorites are comparable on my skin.
What are some of your favorite face oils? Do you have a dry skin regime that works out well for you? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
