Being such a big fan of Dermalogica products, I am always delighted to see new products from them. Most of the products worked pretty well on my skin, but sadly this new line for the sensitive skin is really bad. I am actually very disappointed that it does not work at all and sometimes even made my skin worse.
The original formula of the ultra calming cleanser is my holy grail product for almost 4 years, however the new formula performs badly on my skin.
With this new calming masque, will I be able to renew my confidence? Hardly, to say the least.
Key Ingredients of this new UltraCalming line :
Acetyl Tetrapeptide-15 : Targets neurosensitive skin by reducing painful sensations
Boerhavia Diffusa (Red Hogweed) Root Extract : Targets neurogenic inflammation, restores tissue integrity and soothes to restore skin's normal sensitivity level for immediate and long lasting effects
Avena Sativa (Oat Kernel) Extracts : Natuiral anti-irritant and anti-redness properties
Ginger Extract and Bisabolol : Works synergistically to help reduce redness and irritation
I have 4 sachets of this masque and it provided me for about 5 to 6 usages of which I have used for about 3 times. It does not have any artficial scent. The look-almost-creamy but light texture spreads easily on the skin but unlike the usual calming mask in the market, it does not have one of those minty cold feeling commonly used to soothe the redness, if any.
In fact, it feels so normal that one may forgot that its supposed to be a calming mask.
It does nothing to soothe the redness on my cheeks which was due to an allergic reaction to a new make-up remover I am currently using.
My red, dry scaly patch on the right cheek near the nose remains the same, with or without the masque application. It does nothing to the skin, no improvement, no soothed feeling, no softness, nothing. Period.
The first time, I used it up to 10minutes as stated in the description and there was a slight itch sensation of which I washed it off immediately.
The second time, I was rushed for time and had it on for 5 minutes where nothing happen. The redness did not subside at all for the whole day.
The third time, I had it for 15minutes, just to ensure that it is truly a failure and indeed it proved my claim. Into the bin, it goes. Bye!
It does get good reviews from 3 persons on Makeupalley though. You can read more about the line of products here.
