Hi angels. As you all know, I’m a lover of skincare. It’s so important to keep your skin clean & healthy. It’s amazing what products can truly do to your skin to improve blemishes, skin irritations and the whole cleanliness of your skin and so much more benefits.
Always make sure to check out reviews / the ingredients to the products that you put on your skin. Anything you put on your skin, always check! Your skin is so important.
Anyhow, I’ve recently had an amazing opportunity, as you can tell by the title of this post! I’m officially a #skinfluencer for Dermalogica!!!
How magical!! It’s great that I’m working with a skincare brand that truly cares for its consumers and brand identity. From their ingredients to their values, Dermalogica is a fabulous brand and I’m so excited to get to work with them.
I’m in the making of creating a YouTube video on their gifted package that they sent me – filled with the skincare routine that I’ll be trying out. But I’ll speak more in detail down below all about the products themselves.
Throughout the post I’ll insert photos of my skin this week whilst I’ve been using the Dermalogica products.
I got gifted a total of 5 products in this package – a perfect amount for a routine. The leaflet inside explained what the steps were and I’ve been following it for a whole week now. (Skin feels great)!
As I was in contact with Dermalogica, they asked me what my skin type was and any issues or differences I have with my skin. I have combination skin. This means I can get very oily or very dry – depends on the time of the month, the weather and my hydration to be honest.
I don’t get spots really, if I do it’ll be one or two that go quite quickly. I’m lucky in that sense that I don’t tend to get many spots. Of course I get blemishes and spots, but not to the point that I would need special skincare for it.
So, focussing on my dryness and other times oiliness, I want to achieve super smooth, soft and healthy feeling skin using the Dermalogica products. I have used the products for a total of one week on Monday – so I’ll update you again in 2 weeks on my process.
Let’s talk packaging first. The boxes themselves are super slick & minimalistic. This is great as the packaging is sophisticated and fits in with their brand target market. The colours of the packaging match the actual colours of the products themselves – which is always a positive. Silver, white & grey are the majority three colours of their palette.
My Dermalogica Skin Care Steps:
First Step: The PreCleanse
The precleanse is an oil base product. Used as a pump mechanism, you only need a tiny amount as it comes out quick (as expected) and oils come in vast quantities – meaning a little goes a LONG way! The precleanse helps to melt impurities and get rid of deep makeup in the skin. To use the product, you firstly have dry hands, pump a small amount of the oil onto the palm of your hand, rub together and gently rub into the skin. With this product, I focus on my cheeks and forehead – as they’re the areas that are the most stubborn with blemishes. To finish, rinse with warm water & a flannel / your choice of cloth.
Second Step: Special Cleansing Gel
This product is a gel base, which is soap free and foams very well! With all of these products, you only need a tiny amount of it as it literally goes such a long way! Which is fabulous because you get to have the products for longer use. The special cleansing gel feels really nice on the skin – not harsh in the slightest – great for sensitive skin. You can lather the product and just add more water to your hands then in circular motions spread around your skin. Remember to always get your neck covered in the products, the neck is super important – just as important as your face! Face & neck for skincare ALWAYS. To finish, rinse off with warm water & flannel.
Third Step: Daily Microfoliant
Lemme tell you, this product intrigued me the most!!! I had never used anything like this before for my skin, so it was definitely a happy surprise. The Daily Microfoliant is a powder base product. It reminds me of baby powder – white & very soft. Again, a TINY amount is needed. About half a teaspoon is the recommended amount for step three. Apply with wet hands, tap the product into the palm of your wet hands and make sure they’re very wet – so the product can form correctly. Once you rub your hands together, the powder turns bitty – meaning it exfoliates your skin and really gets into those deep crevices and pores. It acts as a scrub! Rub all into your skin, especially the areas you struggle with the most. Do this for about 30 seconds and then rinse off with warm water & a flannel.
Fourth Step: Skin Smoothing Cream
Every single day, I moisturise my skin, especially my face & neck. It’s incredibly important to keep your skin hydrated. Especially with my skin, I have to moisturise morning and night for optimum effect. The Skin Smoothing Cream by Dermalogica has worked a DREAM. I’m incredibly picky with moisturisers, but I’m happily working with this one. It’s not causing harm to my skin one little bit – and I have incredibly sensitive skin haha. So it’s a HUGE positive for me. I would say the average person only needs a small amount of this product again, but I tend to really moisturise and lather it on full. I focus on my cheeks, neck and forehead the most.
I’ve heard this from many famous people, from the every day skincare person and on product packaging, that you should moisturise and clean your face in an upwards motion. So instead of pulling down your skin, push it upwards with the products!
Those are the skincare steps!! So far it’s going really well for me – I’m being 100% honest. I only tell you all the truth and these Dermalogica products have worked a dream so far. So I’m excited to see an outcome at the end of it. For now, I cannot say the end result of them, but it’s looking very positive for my skin!
If you’ve been paying close attention, you would’ve read that I had been given 5 products…
Fifth Product: The SkinPerfect Primer
This product goes onto your skin before any makeup. You can moisturise your skin first, then apply this Primer. The SkinPerfect Primer is SPF 30, which is fabulous for your skins protection from the sun & it’s also tinted!! The tint works wonders for my skin tone – as it gives me a lovely dewy and glowy look!
It feels absolutely amazing. It goes onto your skin so smoothly and really hydrates your skin. I don’t wear foundation, so I don’t need it used as a ‘primer’ as such. I use it more as a glowy and dewy all over base for my skin. It evens out my skin tone and covers blemishes SO well! I don’t put much makeup on in general, but I do use layers to my makeup routine. So as I wear blusher, sometimes highlight and concealer – it has let the products go onto my skin so smoothly ontop of the Primer & you can’t tell that my skin has anything all over it – it’s a definite product to have.
If you’ve read all of this then I congratulate you for being a top member of my blog hahah! Thank you for reading angels.
