Skincare Review | Dermalogica

As a member of Dermalogica’s Skinfluencer programme I am very lucky to be sent some of their products to try out so here are my thoughts on some of their most classic skincare products! 
dermalogica pre cleanse microfoliant special cleansing gel skin smoothing cream skin perfect primer review

I love a good cleansing oil and this one is beautiful! It’s feels luxurious and the citrus scent is very invigorating! It makes light work of removing makeup but man does this sting when I go too near my eyes! Bit of a deal breaker for me as I like a product that does it all but I really enjoy using this on days I don’t have eye makeup on so can get away with just my normal eye make-up remover! Adding water changes the oil to a milky emulsion giving it even more oomph but I just wish it didn’t react with my eyes so bad! 

Since cleansing gels aren’t really my jam, I have to say this was the product I was least excited for but how wrong I was. This has completely changed my opinion on them! It’s a watery gel (a little goes a long way) that lathers without drying and makes my skin feel fully clean and not stripped at all. I love using this as my morning cleanse as it leaves my skin feeling calm and matte perfect for my next skincare steps and makeup. A very surprising love! 

dermalogica daily microfoliant review

This really is the standout product for me! I had heard so much hype before I tried it and it completely lives up to it! It’s a super finely milled rice-based powder that activates when in  contact with water to release Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes. The first time I used this I thought it was going to feel harsh but how wrong I was, this is the ultimate exfoliator and I can’t get over how gentle yet effective it is at removing dead, flaky skin and making my skin feel the smoothest and softest it has in years! 

Another favourite for me is this moisturiser! Its creamy but lightweight and serves as a great base for my makeup as well as hydrating my skin throughout the day! It is patented with Active Hydramesh Technology to give skin 48 hour’s worth of hydration and also protects against environmental stressors. I haven’t went 48 hours without doing a full skincare routine but my biggest indicator this works for me is how plump my skin still looks after a full day in a heated office!

Lastly is the skinperfect primer and I love how this contains SPF30! It’s a velvety tinted primer that works well to even out my skin tone and ensures my makeup applies smoothly, For me, it doesn’t give my makeup quite the lasting powder as the Touch in Sol No Poreblem Primer does with my nemesis (Note foundation) and with the SPF in it it’s not something I would wear if I knew there was going to be flash photography but it really does leave a lovely base and I can imagine me getting a lot of use out of this in the summer in particular! 

Overall I am super impressed with my first foray into Dermalogica skincare and I think the price point is spot on for the quality of products! My favourites are obviously the Daily Microfoliant, Special Cleansing Gel and Skin Smoothing Cream as you can tell from the reviews so they are definitely top of my recommendation list at the minute if you need any new cleansers, exfoliator or moisturisers in your routine!  

Dermalogica can be bought directly from their website as well as many UK retailers such as Look Fantastic, John Lewis and Feel Unique!

  1. I absolutely love Precleanse - I just finished another bottle and miss it already! Daily Microfoliant is a classic and I love Skin Smoothing Cream too. For 6 months prior to my wedding, Dermalogica was the only brand I used and only facials I had to try to get my skin in great condition x

    1. I can see why! My skin is lapping their products up! Xx

  2. As you read in my blog post and commented, that we both loved the same three products. Fantastic products from Dermalogica.

  3. I really do like their moisturiser - so many people I know in real life enjoy the exfoliator, though I don't reach for it that much because it seems a bit faffy! I really should do though

    1. I love the exfoliator, feels more gentle to me than some other exfoliators I have but seems to work way better for me! Xx

  4. I really want to try Dermalogica next year, everyone who has tried it seems to really love it, I want to try their cleanser and moisturiser in particular. Great post, Danielle, I really love their packaging. Merry Christmas xx
