Beauty900: My Favourite Dermalogica Skincare Products

Dermalogica Microfoliant - If you've been living under a rock, you must have skipped the hype surrounding this product. Apparently celebrities love it, it's a regular in magazines and raved about by bloggers alike. It's also a staple in Dermalogica Facials at salons and spas. What it is is essentially a dry exfoliant that can be used to slough off dead skin cells. Unlike a regular exfoliator, this is great as it's not abrasive or harsh yet leaves skin baby soft. My skin particularly loves it for Winter. Can be used mixed with your regular cleanser to turn it into a creamy scrub BUT nonetheless works well on it's own for baby soft skin.

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel - Like gel based cleansers? Me too! Yes I like to reserve my creamy, thick, lush, balmy cleansers for evening pamper sessions but for mornings, I need a refreshing gel formula to wake me up. In the past, gel based cleansers have left my skin seriously dry and dehydrated, left alone bursting out in spots. This on the other is perfect for my confused, sensitive skin. It's a foaming formula but one that doesn't occur chemically or using soap but using a plant extract that naturally creates that foaming lather. I keep mine in the fridge overnight to use it chilled in the mornings. No need for coffee then!

Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream  - I've only been testing this out recently and what a lovely product this is. Come Winter, I am usually confused about what moisturiser will cut the mustard for me. Some formulas are just not adequate enough for me and some are simply too much, giving me a white head face in the morning, indicating they're too rich for me. Skin Smoothing Cream on the other hand is versatile enough to be used by a majority of skin types. It works for mine and is apparently an anti-ageing one. It helps fight dehydration and leaves skin super plump and supple. You have to give this a try.

Dermalogica Multi Active Toner - I've only tried a sample size of this and feel I need to repurchase this for travel. Its such a lovely toner that feels brilliant on the skin. Use it after a good exfoliating session and you'll love how this will seal in the moisture and help moisturiser absorb in better. It's also so cooling and feels quite refreshing. I know people usually don't get on with all sorts of toners, so if you're one of them, you've got to give this a go.

Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair - I used this on my mum on a facial I was giving her last weekend (I know, my family is lucky!) and it's fantastic. She has the worst dark circles in the entire world (hoping she doesn't read this) and has such a dry under eye area. This absorbed into her skin like a dream and was so lovely to massage on. Afterwards her under eye area looked much brighter and all that dewyness distracted attention away from her fine lines and wrinkles.
