This post features gifted products from Dermalogica as part of their Skinfluencer programme.
You may or may not have seen on my Instagram, but I feel so proud to say that I am a part of Dermalogica’s Skinfluencer programme! Working with such an amazing, high quality skincare brand truly is such a privilege for little ole me.
The most recent package they sent me (ft. all the products in this post) truly amazed me – I couldn’t believe the range of fab products they sent over! I was also really impressed by how they sent every #skinfluencer a bespoke range of products based on their skin type to create their own unique skincare routine. How cool is that?! They even sent me an email a few days after the package arrived, telling me how to use the products and the recommended order of use. As I’m a bit of a newbie to all things skincare, this was so useful!
So, onto the products…
First up is the Daily Skin Health Precleanse. This creates a milky emulsion which melts away your makeup, before you use a second cleanser or facial wash. It’s also really gentle, I can use it to wipe away my mascara without it feeling harsh on my eyes.
Next I use the Clear Start Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash. When mixed with water, this lathers up into a gentle fresh-smelling foam. I love using this as it really makes my face feel squeaky clean afterwards, and I know my face is truly makeup and dirt free after partnering it with the Precleanse.
After my face is squeaky clean, I go in with the Daily Skin Health Daily Microfoliant. This is unlike your typical exfoliator. It’s actually a fine, gritty powder which turns into a exfoliating paste when rubbed together on wet hands – it’s so cool! It’s one of the most gentle exfoliating products I’ve used on my face, because it is so fine. It’s enough to get rid of those dead skin cells and dry patches, without it feeling too harsh and ebrasive.
Next I use the Ultracalming Mist. This feels so refreshing and soothing and really helps to add a bit of moisture post-cleansing. It’s like a setting spray but for your skin, rather than your makeup!
To really lock in moisture, I apply the Clear Start Skin-Soothing Hydrating Lotion. This is like a slightly runny gel consistency as opposed to a thick and creamy moisturiser. A little goes a long way! This leaves my skin feels soft and supple, working hand in hand with the Ultracalming Mist.
Lastly, they sent me the Daylight Defense Solar Defense Booster SPF50. I think this stuff is absolute genius. You can mix it in with your moisturiser or foundation and instantly make it SPF50. I always forget about the importance of using an SPF when it’s not a baking hot day, so this makes it so easy to keep your skin protected without that greasy sun cream feeling!
All of these products feel so luxurious and they all have such spa-like scents. My skin always feels like its had a real treat after doing this little routine! I can’t thank Dermalogica enough for sending this all over to me and I’m sure it’s all going to continue doing wonders for my skin.
