Dermalogica is one of our best loved brands here at Pure Beauty. Both of the Salon customers and our Online customers love buying and using their products, and their facials and chemical peels are very popular as well.
Dermalogica was founded by a skin therapist, so they really know how to create custom skin care solutions that work. They offer professional-grade skin care education, products, and services to skin therapists and customers alike. Their product lines grew out of a desire to provide skin therapists with best-in-class skin care products and education. As a result of the first class education they provide, it means that the Therapist’s performing the treatments are trained to a high standard, with great knowledge in both skin, and the brand itself.
Due to their wide variety of products, it is ever so easy for us as Therapists, or even clients themselves, to create a highly customised regimen. This means that as your skin changes through the seasons and years, Dermalogica will always have something suitable.
Another amazing thing is that they are committed to sustainability. They are certified cruelty-free, gluten-free, and vegan (all but 3 products). The formulas are free of artificial colours and fragrances, mineral oil, lanolin, S.D. alcohol, parabens and microplastics. Also, all paper and cartons they manufacture are FSC certified to be sustainable for forests. In this day and age where people are very conscious about the environment, myself included, I love to hear when a brand is ensuring that they are doing their bit in keeping the world as clean as we can.
As for the products themselves, one of my personal favourites is the Daily Microfoliant Exfoliator. This exfoliator is suitable for all skin types. It is unique, a rice-based enzyme powder that micro-exfoliates dulling debris and instantly leaves the skin noticeably smoother and brighter. I personally mix mine in with my Active Clay Cleanser whilst I shower. By mixing it in with the cleanser, it dilutes it a little, making it less abrasive. However, if you like that firm, exfoliating feel, then just pop a little in your hand, and mix with a small amount of water until you get your desired consistency.
I also love the fact that they have the Clearstart line. These are clinically proven formulas that help breakout prone (mostly teenage) skin to calm and clear. It is not stripping, but instead packed with all those ingredients you need to fight acne, such as Salicylic Acid and Lactic Acid, but is gentle enough for that teenage skin.
Their anti-ageing Age Smart line is one of our bestsellers also. The Multivitamin Power Firm is a staple for me in my professional treatments, and I know many of my clients love it. It is used around not only the eye area to combat ageing, but the lip area also. It helps to combat visible lines and dehydration. The thicker formula melts easily into your skin, giving you great results.
