UK blog review flatlay of Dermalogica productsA couple of weeks ago, I had a Face Mapping Skin Analysis with Dermalogica.  The skin analysis provided an insight into the 'past and present' of my skin and a few days later I received a targeted skincare regime based on the results to ensure a brighter (literally) future for my skin.  It's been a fascinating process, both learning more about my skin (probably the only time I'll be okay about receiving a list of my skin's flaws!) and becoming acquainted with my new Dermalogica skincare regime.  So, after a week or two, what do I think?

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel c/o - One word, clean.  It feels as though I'm truly taking care of my skin when I use this (soap-free) gel cleanser.  This was recommended by Dermalogica through my Face Mapping experience to give my chin the best chance to fight hormonal breakouts.  So far, so good!

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant c/o - Hands down my favourite of the bunch, and I'd even go so far as to say one of my all-time favourite beauty discoveries (and not just because the powder-to-foam process is strangely satisfying).  Having read countless positive reviews, I was super excited to find it was recommended for me in a bid to reduce congestion across my face.  It's been a case of too much moisturiser and not enough exfoliating.  From the very first use my skin has been softer - and YES I've been making everyone stroke my face to show off the results.  Goodbye bumps either side of the nose!

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque c/o - Hmm, although my skin isn't super sensitive, it's also nowhere near tough enough to deal with this product.  Sadly, this wasn't a good fit for my skin and left my forehead and chin feeling uncomfortable.  I would definitely suggest trying a sample of this product to test it out on your skin before purchasing

Dermalogica Total Eye Care spf15 c/o - The most interesting discovery through my Face Mapping Skin Analysis, was finding out my eyes were dehydrated which had resulted in dark circles and unnecessary fine lines.  Since using Dermalogica's Total Eye Care, the skin underneath my eyes has undoubtedly become more comfortable and fine lines have reduced significantly.  There's been a small improvement with regard to dark circles, though combined with increasing my water intake, I'm hoping a clearer result will perhaps reveal itself in a few weeks from now.  I really, really wish I had known about this product before now - it's done so much for my eyes in such little time!

Dermalogica Total Eye CreamLong story short, I'm smitten!  The Daily Microfoliant feels like a miracle product and I'm relieved to finally have an eye cream in my skincare regime that performs so well.  Let me know in the comments below whether you're familiar with this brand, and if so, do you have a favourite product?
