A while ago Dermalogica launched two newbies in the Ultra Calming collection namely the Calm Water Gel and Barrier Defense Booster and I finally got around to putting my thoughts on the blog.

The Calm Water Gel is definitely one of my new favourites in my beauty cupboard. This weightless water-gel moisturiser hydrates dry and sensitive skin almost instantly, perfect for the winter! It’s a refreshing gel formula that transforms into a skin-quenching fluid upon application, forming a weightless barrier against environmental assault and leaves the skin feeling soft, smooth and calmed.

It contains dual Hyaluronic Acid technology that works on different skin surface layers to increase and lock in moisture. Apple Fruit Extract and Glycerin hydrate and soften the skin while also defending skin against dryness and the Cactus Pear Extract helps soothe sensitivity and imparts water-binding properties to help support healthy moisture balance, once again making this product your perfect winter warrior!

Calm Water Gel can be used both morning and night after cleansing but remember a small amount goes a long way. Squeeze into your plans and rub your hands together to activate the water-binding properties,  then gently pat onto your face, neck and chest.

For very sensitive skin or skin in need of some extra TLC, the Barrier Defense Booster is a must! This concentrated, lightweight oil booster soothes, nourishes and moisturises to restore balance to sensitive skin.

It contains a Triple Defense Complex that nourishes the skin, relieves dryness and reinforces barrier integrity against future irritation. Squalane locks in moisture while soothing Oat Oil helps combat sensitivity and support healthy-looking skin.

The Dermalogica Barrier Defense Booster can be used twice a day for around the clock defense.  Dispense a few drops in your palm and press onto the skin before moisturising or simply mix a few drops with your moisturiser and apply in one.

And just like that Dermalogica has solved all your winter dry skin problems!
