A few weeks ago, I shared with you guys the Dermalogica Chalet and their newest products – The Barrier Defense Booster and their Calm Water Gel. These two new products are part of Dermalogica’s UltraCalming line that treats top concerns for those who have sensitive skin. The Barrier Defense Booster (30 ml, $101 CDN) and the Calm Water Gel (50 ml, $65 CDN) work great, especially when used together.
The Barrier Defense Booster is a concentrated oil that soothes and moisturizes to restore balance to sensitive skin. It’s triple defense complex nourishes the skin, relieves dryness, and reinforces barrier integrity against future irritation. It’s also great at preventing skin irritation before it starts. The Calm Water Gel is unlike any moisturizer. It’s a gel that turns into a liquid once applied to your skin, but leaves it hydrated and soft. Using these products on their own work great, but applying them together give off maximum results!
I’ve been using both of these products right before bed, after I’ve washed my face. I would want to use it twice a day, but The Barrier Defense Booster is an oil and makes my skin look very oily! So it’s best to use at night so you skin can absorb all the great qualities it has to offer. However, I do use the Calm Water Gel in both the morning and night because it hydrates my face so well! These products also both smell like lavender – which is calming all by itself. After washing my face at night, I apply the Barrier Defense Booster and wait 5 minutes before applying the Calm Water Gel. My face has been breaking out lately (not because of these products!), but I’ve noticed that the spots haven’t been getting as red as they used to.
Although these products come at a hefty price [The Barrier Defense Booster $101 CDN & Calm Water Gel $65 CDN], I would still recommend getting them. A lot of each product goes a LONG way, so you’ll be using these for a while! My skin has been noticeably smoother and softer. I can’t say it’s helped the dryness, but it’s been really cold lately and I’ve been using my space heater to warm my bedroom up every night. So, I think it’s my own fault…
