I had not experienced Dermalogica in my quest for high-quality and effective skincare. I think I've been missing out. Dermalogica has a very comprehensive website with a lot of
information including a Real Time Skin Analysis, a way to tailor your own skincare needs. I highly recommend doing this and finding what your trouble areas are. I liked reading about the different parts of the face and what problem areas indicate.

After completing the Analysis, Dermalogica will email you a personalized skin care routine with products just for you. Mine of course was oily- my face makes enough oil to power a Hybrid car.

My skincare routine included the PreCleanse, Skin Refining Masque, Oil Control Lotion,
Skin Prep Scrub, Eye Repair and a oil free sunscreen.

The PreCleanse is a cleansing oil which contains Olive and Kukui oils. This gentle cleanser combines with water to remove excess facial oils, dirt and makeup. There is the Skin Refining Masque which is described as being able to "remove impurities and refine skins surface." My skin was certainly clean and smooth after using the mask. The mask did not irritate my skin nor did it have a medicinal smell to it like some masks do. It rinsed off easily and completely with some warm water and a washcloth.

Oil Control Lotion contains "micro-sponges" (I imagine small yellow Spongebob Squarepants) to absorb extra oil. I pat this on my T-zone before I apply concealor or foundation. Fragrance free, this product contains a 1.0% Salicylic Acid, which assists in eliminating acne.

Skin Prep Scrub is addicting for me. I like the texture of scrubs, the grittiness feels like my skin is getting polished. This scrub contains finely ground Corn Cob Meal so you can actually eat it. Just kidding- I wanted to see if you were paying attention. Used with the Skin Refining Masque, your skin will glow. **I wish I had a moisturizer to complete my routine!

I don't go a single day without putting on at least a teeny amount of the Intensive Eye Repair. The fact that in contains: "Cucumber, Butcherbroom and Arnica, Wild Yam Extract, Pro-Vitamin B5 Vitamins A, C and E, Grape Seed Extract" means nothing to me, it's a very very emollient cream that feels good around my dry eye area. I'm always putting this stuff on!

I know I should be applying sunscreen to my face every single day of the year. I often skip it because I don't want my face to have extra shine. Yeah, I KNOW this isn't smart, especially for someone like myself who is concerned with aging and skin cancer. I think I found a solution to my issues and it's called the Oil Free Matte Block SPF 20. I use this each morning when I go for a long walk, patting it around my eyes and on my cheeks. Its non-irritating, doesn't smell and creates absolutely no extra oil.

Bottom line: I'm impressed with Dermalogica. I like their no frills way of skincare. The boxes and bottles are simple and straightforward. Their products don't smell (except the Skin Prep Scrub smells like witch hazel) and most importantly, it works! I want to try the **Super Rich Repair Lotion next.

I've had dermologica facials and have been less than impressed with the depth of the cleaning (as far as I could tell), but I did try the line. I, too, have oily skin that is blemish prone. I liked the product all right for a while. A clay-based cleanser is a good idea, but wasn't ultimately impressed with its ability to help me maintain control of my complexion. I was especially bummed when the Medicated Clearing Gel pilled and peeled off of my face. However, the Daily Resurfacer is amazing! It's the best best best! It seems to be a great line, but there might have to be a period of hit and miss for some people before they find the right combination.
