Review: Demalogica Multi-Active Toner, Skin Hydrating Masque & Ultracalming Serum Concentrate

 What Is Dermalogica?
Dermalogica revolutionized the skin care industry when it emerged into the marketplace in 1986 with innovative formulations, which excluded common irritants, including SD alcohol, lanolin, mineral oil and artificial colors and fragrance. Jane Wurwand developed the products to better support the advanced curriculum she had developed a few years earlier for The International Dermal Institute, which she also founded. Beginning with Dermal Clay Cleanser. Multi-Active Toner, Skin Smoothing Cream and Skin Prep Scrub, which remain among the company's top-sellers today, Wurwand led the company's growth from an idea to the world's most-requested professional skin care

Today I will be reviewing on their Muti-Active Toner, Ultracalming Serum Concentrate. and Skin Hydrating Masque. 

Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner
$31.00 for 8.4oz
 What They Say About Product
An ultra-light facial spritz that refreshes and hydrates the skin while smoothing the surface. Helps condition skin to prepare for proper moisture absorption. Can be spritzed throughout the day to help maintain hydration levels. Contains no artificial fragrance or color. 

Directions of Use
After cleansing, spray directly over entire face and throat with eyes closed. Follow with recommended Dermalogica Booster or Moisturizer.

This is not a clear picture of the product on the back of my hand.
My Thoughts
After trying the toner for a few weeks, I think this is a great product to have. It hydrates my skin and prepares it for moisturizer. You do not need to use a cotton ball or anything because this is a spray on toner. The only thing I don't like about this product is when I spray it on my face, sometimes it could get into my eyelid. My eyelid is sensitive for the fall/winter season so the toner stings my eyelid a little bit. Overall, this is a great product to refresh your skin in any season.

Rating: 4/5

-Hydrates Skin

Contains our exclusive UltraCalming™ Complex to help reduce sensitivity, redness, irritation and inflammation. Helps interrupt inflammatory triggers to prevent flare-ups. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

Serum Concentrate on my hand 
My Thoughts
This products is part of their UltraCalming System, which help manage the multiple causes behind sensitized, inflamed skin, which can stem from a genetic predisposition towards sensitivity or as a result from environmental assaults. 

Overall, I am in love with this product! I have redness on the bridge of my nose and some other parts of the face but after using this a few weeks, the redness reduced. I think if I continue to use this product, the redness will soon be gone. The serum concentrate never irritates my skin so people with sensitive skin are okay to use this product. This UltraCalming system is best to use during fall/winter for my skin because it could defend my skin against inflammation and redness. I have use their mini sample size of the UltraCalming Cleanser and am amazed by it. You can even use it around the eye area and it helps with the inflammation if you have any. I would definitely recommend and buy this product again!

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque
Price: $36.00 for 2.5oz/75mL
 What They Say About Product
A refreshing, oil-free gel masque of calming botanical and antioxidant vitamins that restores critical moisture to stressed skin. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

Direction of Use
Apply a smooth film to clean face and throat. Allow masque to absorb for 7 to 10 minutes. Rinse with tepid water or remove with The Sponge Cloth. Use once or twice a week as prescribed.
My Thoughts
I love how this mask restores moisture to my skin. Your skin will feel hydrated after using this mask. The consistency of this is gel-like but can be apply very smoothly over the face. If you use this for about twice a week, your skin will feel refresh and hydrating. It won't irritate sensitive skin at all but different people experience different thing. I would continue to use this and recommend it to other.

  1. Great review! I haven't tried any of those, but I might give it a try next time I'm at ULTA or something. Though, I haven't really had the best results with Dermalogica products...they always gave me just okay results and it's too pricey for just average results, but I'm a skincare/makeup junkie, so I'll keep trying xD

  2. @Erika: Yes you should give this a try. I like their UltraCalming System and I think it works great on me. I hope you will find something that benefits and help your skin:)
