Wots Her Name Again? ❤ Dermalogica

In this post, I am excited to share some of my fav Dermalogica skincare products with you guys as I have been raving about them for years
My skin journey has been crazy especially since I started to take medication for Lupus which has made my skin super oily, and before that, I was dealing with mid ache which also left me with hyperpigmentation which I covered with make-up and the cycle of breakouts continued.  

It wasn’t until I was in my late 20’s when I went to have my first facial that I was introduced to Dermalogica. Once my facial was over I was provided with a Facial Map which showed my skin issues. 
And a prescription of products to use. 
As the Dermalogica products are quite pricey I decided to try the travel kit to see how it goes before investing in the full-size products which I eventually did, as the products for me are worth it as my skin responds to the products and the regime  

 Dermalogica the Multi-active Toner
This is one of the products I originally started using. It is full of amazing ingredients and it also smells great too. The mist is basicity a toner that you apply after cleansing your face or throughout the day to tone hydrate the skin.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
A super gentle exfoliant which comes in a powder form which needs to be mixed with water before applying. Once mixed with water the unique Rice-based powder formula activates and creates a foam releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells, instantly leaving skin smoother and brighter. Helping to balance uneven skin pigmentation and calm the skin, leaving it clear and refreshed.
It’s gentle enough to use daily although I probably use it maybe 4 times a week. I love how my skin looks and feels after use. So when it comes to makeup application it's super easy.

Dermalogica Precleanse
When I get home from work this is the first product I go for, to take off my make-up.
Well, it was until it until Dermalogica came up with the Precleanse Balm which I will tell you about a little bit later. Precleanse is a deep cleansing oil melts away impurities and make-up from your skin. Part of the Double Cleanse regimen the water-activated oil cleanser deconstructs layers of excess sebum (oil), waterproof make-up, environmental pollutants and product build-up on the skin.
You simply apply the Precleanse to your unclean face and the watch makeup and all the oils and dirt which collected throughout the day melt off.

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
The final step in Dermalogica’s Double Cleanse regimen the Special Cleansing Gel is perfect for my combination, spot prone skin as I am not a fan of heavy cleansers because I which can cause me to break out, even more, it also doesn’t feel like it dries my skin out at all. 

Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster Spf50
I recently started to use this under my make up because it has SPF in it and it also helps to control my oily skin. 

Total Eye Care Eye Cream
I recently started using this attempt to combat the dark circles around my eyes, it's early days co I can’t report any changes as of yet however it does give my eyes a brightening boost It also has an SPF which is a big plus 

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
I love something that is genuinely going to leave my skin feeling super soft, and glowing. It is one of those products that is so gentle on the skin, you don't need a lot of it and after using this  I notice a massive difference in the way my make-up applies and also how my skin feels.

Dermalogica Active Moist
If you are the kind of person that struggles with oily skin, then this product will be amazing for you as it is light on the skin and leaves your skin feeling hydrated.
Active Moist formula contains Silk Amino Acids and a unique combination of plant extracts that help improve skin texture and combat surface dehydration.
Unfortunately, I have yet to find that one special product to keep my skin nice and matte throughout the day, however, I have found using the products I have mentioned have defiantly helped prevent me looking like an oil slick.

Precleanse Balm
My baby! Similar to the Pre Cleanse this deep cleansing balm-to-oil melts away impurities and make-up from your skin. Part of the Double Cleanse regimen which begins with the Pre Cleanse Balm. This water-activated, balm-to-oil cleanser deconstructs layers of excess sebum (oil), waterproof make-up, environmental pollutants and product build-up on the skin. It comes with a Cleansing Mitt to help thoroughly cleanse debris from the skin’s surface, and aid your recommended Dermalogica Cleanser to deliver more effective results.
The difference between the Precleanse Balm and the Precleanse Is the Precleanse Balm is a balm with a consistency similar to Vaseline and comes with a mitt while the Precleanse is a liquid and does not come with a mitt 

Daily Superfoliant
Similar to the Daily Microfoliant the Daily Superfoliant is highly-active resurfacer which helps deliver the smoothest skin ever. Made from activated Binchotan Charcoal which is great for purifying the skin, and helps to adsorb toxins from deep within the pores.
Like the Daily Microfoliant, it foams up after contact with water and is to be gently massaged into the skin then washed off. However, Daily Microfoliant is gentle enough to use every day the Daily Superfoliant should only be used 2-3 times a week

Skin Hydrating Booster
This little aby is a super Hydrating fluid which helps restore moisture balance and minimize the appearance of fine dehydration lines and can bed used before, or mixed with, your moisturizer to help lift moisture levels.

I have also recently noticed the following product which I would quite like to try:

Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon
Revitalizing treatment gel-cream transforms skin overnight by optimizing night-time skin recovery. Tamarind Seed Extract creates a nourishing cocoon of comfort for softer, more hydrated skin while encapsulated, motion-activated French Lavender Essential Oil (with Sandalwood and Patchouli) work all night to promote deep, restful sleep for healthier-looking skin by morning. Other key ingredients include Persian Silk Tree Extract which reduces signs of skin fatigue and restores vitality while Wu-Zhu-Yu Extract provides visibly radiant skin by the a.m.
