Our Customer’s Top 6 Rated Dermalogica Products

1. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant®

This rice-based powder helps you to achieve smoother, brighter skin daily. 

Activating when it comes into contact with water, the powder releases rice enzymes, salicylic acid, and papain which work to gently polish your skin to perfection.

With the addition of a skin brightening complex of white tea, licorice, and phytic acid from rice bran, the formula helps to even your skin tone, meanwhile, your skin is soothed with allantoin and collodial oatmeal. 

How to use:
After your cleansing routine, take about a half-teaspoon amount of the Daily Microfoliant into your very wet hands, and create a creamy paste by rubbing your hands together. Apply the paste to your face using circular motions, avoiding your delicate eye area. Massage gently into your skin for one minute, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. This exfoliator is gentle enough to use every day.

What our customers say:
“Excellent exfoliator! Have been looking for a gentle yet effective exfoliator for a while. Really easy to use, simply mix the powder with water into a paste. My skin felt so clean and smooth after use. Would highly recommend! Is a good size to travel with or simply to get a feel for the product. Will be buying the larger size soon!” – Sophie B

“I'm mid 50’s and have used this for years. Had combination skin early days and now more so dry. So gentle on my skin and really feels as though it’s exfoliating well to leave skin feeling fresh and toned.” – Joy W

2. Dermalogica Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash

This breakout cleansing foaming wash is the perfect addition to your skincare routine if you struggle with oilier, breakout-prone skin. Working to deep clean and purify, the wash can be used both morning and evening, and helps to clear away any dirt, dead skin cells, and excess oil that clog your pores and cause breakouts. 

The wash can be used all over your body from your face to your neck and your back.  

How to use:
Work a pea-sized amount into your wet hands to form a lather. Apply to your dampened face and neck, and massage in circular motions - paying particular attention to areas where you tend to get more congestion and oiliness. Avoid your delicate eye area. Rinse away thoroughly with warm water.

What our customers say:
“Great product, makes a big difference to teen skin. My daughter really can't do without it. Not only makes a difference to skin, it gives self-confidence. When their skin looks good, they feel good.” – Helen M

“The only thing that's worked so far, 2 months in and skin is a lot better.” – Sofia M

The cream blends smoothly over your skin to give a perfect finish.

How to use:
After cleansing and toning your skin, apply a generous amount to your face and neck - preferably 30 minutes prior to sun exposure.

4. Dermalogica Biolumin-C Eye Serum

This supercharged vitamin C eye serum works to outsmart visible premature skin ageing that's caused by our natural daily eye movements, and the effects of environmental stress. The lightweight serum works to deliver a highly bioavailable vitamin C complex that visibly firms and dramatically brightens the delicate skin around your eyes.

How to use:
After cleansing your skin, smooth the serum around your eye area and gently pat in using your ring finger. 

What our customers say:
“I think this product is brilliant I haven't been using it long but the results are great I can see a great difference around my eyes, wrinkles have definitely improved.” – Anon

5. Dermalogica Skinperfect Primer SPF 30

Smooth away fine lines whilst brightening and priming your skin with this velvety formula. Made with soy protein to help even out your skin texture and give you a smoother surface, the primer is perfect on its own or under makeup for a flawless finish. 

Infused with a potent peptide to support skin firmness, and a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin against sun damage. 

Additionally, the formula is blended with natural earth minerals and pearl powder to give your skin a neutral tint, and boosts luminosity and radiance, and promotes a more even skin tone.

How to use:
After applying your regular Dermalogica Moisturiser, smooth the primer over your entire face and neck. The primer can be worn alone or underneath your makeup to extend the longevity. Don't forget to slide on the included tube dispenser to help you to get the most product out of the tube.

What our customers say:
“In mid-50’s, skin slightly drier than previous years. After moisturising with AVST, this spreads really well and I do not need to use much. Regrettably the Dermalogica tint moisturiser was discontinued, so thought I’d try this as a replacement. It’s not tinted but at least it still gives the look of a smoother complexion and has the sun protection too.” – Joy W

“Best primer ever, makes you glow and protects from the sun! Make up lasts all day too! Very quick delivery! Many thanks!” - Julia W

6. Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum 

This fast-acting, high-dose, multi-retinoid helps to reverse the appearance of pores, reverse the appearance of wrinkles, and retexturise your skin with the added booster technology.

With powerhouse ingredients like encapsulated retinol spheres and retinol to fade the appearance of dark spots, and squalane and beta-glucan to hydrate your skin and protect your moisture barrier, the serum leaves your complexion looking smoother and more even-toned, whilst giving a more youthful-looking appearance. 

How to use:
