Christmas Haul: Dermalogica Cleansers and Soothing Spray

I started using Dermalogica about 3 weeks ago and I absolutely loved it!! My friend was kind enough to give me his unused trial kit to see if it would help clear my acne. To be fair, I can already see a difference after 3 weeks of using them! For your information, my skin is oily, acne-prone and I also suffer from discolouration due the acne-post scars. I know, poor me.

The trial kit that I had includes:
1. Dermal Clay Cleanser
2. Skin Resurfacing Cleanser
3. Multi-Active Toner

I am over the moon with these products and was so happy to see them in big bottles when I unwrapped my Christmas presents. I cannot thank much these generous people who got me these things for Christmas!

Derma Clay Cleanser

This product says:
A skin-perfecting formula designed to provide deep-cleansing to oily, congested skin. 

I cannot agree more! This is probably the best cleanser I have used. Since I have started using it, my face has never got shiny once! I don't even break out. It also makes my face feels light, breathable and fresh without overdrying my skin. The only downside that I can think of is the design of the bottle. For 250ml, there is no pump dispenser and the bottle can be too hard to squeeze.

Skin Resurfacing Cleanser

The product says:
Achieve superior smoothness and ultra-clean skin after just one use with this dual- action exfoliating cleanser. Helps retexturize skin suffering from visible signs of aging by removing dulling surface debris and helping accelerate skin renewal. Antioxidant Vitamin E conditions and enhances softness while fortifying the skin's natural moisture barrier. 

I am only 24 and some people say that we should only start using anti-aging products when we see first signs of wrinkling. I think it's a good idea to start using anti-aging products long before you're even thinking about wrinkles! My friend said this also helps in reducing the post-acne scars that I am suffering at the moment. The weird thing about this cleanser is that it sank into my skin quickly on application! It was like applying a moisturiser! Could that be right? The instruction does tell you to massage at least 30 seconds so maybe that is how it was supposed to react anyway. 3 weeks after using this cleanser, my skin is certainly brighter, smoother and starting to glow. I am not sure if it has reduced my scars yet but so far I am liking the glowing effect so I am going to continue using this cleanser. 

Multi Active-Toner and Soothing Protection Spray 

I can't really say much about the multi-active toner coz I have now swapped it with the Soothing Protection Spray. It is described by dermalogica as a shield that protects your skin against external environmental assaults like irritating cosmetic products, pollution from cars, dust etc. Although the Multi-Active toner did help hydrate my skin I just think that the soothing protection spray would be better for my skin in the winter. As my skin gets flaky over the winter, this spray hydrates my skin more than the multi-active toner. It also has a wonderful smell which is hard for me to describe but it is simply wonderful!

1, 2, 3

So here is my new skin regimen:
I wash my face with 2 facial cleansers, twice a day. Once with the Derma Clay Cleanser and then I will massage my face for at least 30seconds with the Skin Resurfacing Cleanser. Next is the Soothing Protection Spray. I spray it directly to my face and then gently rub in.

Result: Hardly ever break out and my skin is less greasy. I love love love Dermalogica!
