It’s been a little while as to be completely honest, I’ve been so focussed on Instagram and life in general that my poor little blog has taken a slight backseat. I guess it’s acceptable after smashing out Blogmas though, right?
As you can probably tell from the title of this post, 2019 is already shaping up to be a pretty exciting year for me in terms of opportunities! I’m now officially a Skinfluencer for Dermalogica and I’ve fallen head over heels in love with their products.
Not being a complete novice beforehand, I have tried Dermalogica in the past as my beauty therapist uses their products in her facials so I already knew that I was a fan. Using them in my everyday routine however, has completely opened my eyes up to just how amazing their products are and that they really are 110% worth the money.
I thought it was only right to share my in-depth thoughts of the products in the form of a blog post so here it is!
Dermalogica are firm believers in double cleansing (as am I – always have and always will be) and their PreCleanse is the perfect product to kickstart a double cleanse routine. It’s oil formula seamlessly melts away makeup and excess sebum from your skin leaving your skin feeling prepped and ready for a deeper cleanse.
I’ve always been a massive fan of an oily cleanser and this product is no exception. It left my skin feeling so silky smooth without any greasy residue and also left me looking slightly more glowing too which if you’ve read my blog before, I’m sure you already know that I absolutely love.
Special Cleansing Gel
Step two of your double cleanse routine and this product perfectly compliments the first. This cleanser is designed to go deeper into the skin, unblocking those pores and leaving your skin feeling as fresh as a daisy. It doesn’t however, disturb your skin’s natural moisture balance so it won’t interfere with your skin type at all. I personally love this as all too often I find that my usually dry skin sometimes begins to feel oily after using certain cleansers repeatedly.
The Special Cleansing Gel makes skin feel super soft and refreshed without causing tightness. This combo is easily my new favourite skincare routine and I can’t go a day without it.
A powder exfoliator has always been something that’s intrigued me massively but also terrified me slightly too. I was so pleasantly surprised when I realised how easy it actually is to use.
Pouring your desired amount of exfoliator into the palm of your wet hands, you massage the powder together to create a paste like consistency. With the ability to choose your level of exfoliation (just add a little more powder if you want it to be slightly more abrasive) it’s customisable for your personal skin type and how you’re feeling on that specific day. It’s especially great for people who’s skin changes textures throughout the seasons (much like mine) as when you’re finding it slightly drier, you can buff those areas gently using the Daily Microfoliant.
With over 50 awards under it’s belt in the UK alone, I’m not surprised how much I love this product!
Skin Smoothing Cream
It’s no surprise that the Skin Smoothing Cream is Dermalogica’s no.1 best selling moisturiser as it feels beautiful on the skin. It’s advanced Active Hydramesh™ Technology delivers 48 hours of continuous hydration meaning that unlike the majority of moisturisers, your skin is receding continual hydrating love throughout the entire day.
My skin personally loved this moisturiser and my makeup sat perfectly on top of it. Being a make-up artist and wearing normally a full coverage foundation on a daily basis, I’m always searching for something lightweight yet hydrating enough for my dehydrated skin. The Skin Smoothing Cream is absolutely perfect for this.
My initial reaction on this product when squeezing it onto the back of my hand for the first time was almost a bit of shock. I guess in a way it didn’t look how I expected (I was expecting a similar texture and colour to the Skin Smoothing Cream) but instead was faced with a mousse-like nude coloured cream and I wasn’t sure how I’d find it.
After fairly putting it to the test, it’s safe to say I’m a huge fan. Not only does it blur skin and even your skin tone but it also leaves a beautiful glow whilst protecting you with broad spectrum SPF30. This is exactly the type of primer everybody needs in their life as we (hopefully) make our way towards Summer. This primer is the perfect base for any make-up and keeps things in place all day.
Overall as you can probably tell from these reviews, I absolutely LOVE Dermalogica products and consider myself so incredibly lucky to be working with them and be a Skinfluencer for them.
Since switching to Dermalogica products on a daily basis, my skin is thanking me massively and definitely appears less textured, so much softer and my pores have definitely reduced in size too.
Thank you so much for reading today’s post and I hope you’ve enjoyed it!
