Dermalogica's UltraCalming Barrier Repair

Dermalogica's UltraCalming Barrier Repair acts like a thinly veiled shield in order to protect your already sensitive skin, it also soothes, reduces itchiness and redness. On top of all that it works to make your barrier almost impenetrable to various skin aggressors.

And it does all this without water. A waterless moisturiser. What's that you say?

This petite tube couldn't have arrived at a more perfect time -- my face had been reduced to an itching, red mess and I didn't know what to do. In lieu of applying Dermalogica's UltraCalming Barrier Repair all over, I concentrated on the worst areas and hoped for the best and I only needed a tiny dollop.

The texture of the gel-like substance is silky soft. It's also colourless and unscented -- let's face it, the smell of roses wouldn't do anything to emotionally quell what's happening inside of us either.

After seven days of repeated use the itching disappeared, the mountainous bumps had receded, my skin grew softer and began to glow again. Did I also mention this stuff makes for a great makeup base? It really does.
