FREE Age Smart Moisturizer Set with any $50 Dermalogica purchase (offer valid 1/30/16-2/13/16 or while supplies last)

FREE Age Smart Moisturizer Set w/any $50 Dermalogica purchase
A highly active lactic acid concentrate that retexturizes skin suffering from visible signs of aging by removing dulling surface debris and accelerating cell renewal. Antioxidant vitamin E conditions and enhances softness while fortifying the skin¿s natural moisture barrier, while soothing rose flower oil calms skin sensitivity. Daily use of this silky cleanser dramatically improves skin texture and properly prepares for maximum penetration of AGE Smart¿ products. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

How it works:
  • Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates surface cells leaving a smoother, polished surface that is receptive to subsequent active ingredients. Also helps hydrate and brighten.
  • Tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E) is an antioxidant that conditions and enhances skin softness while fortifying skin's natural moisture barrier.
  • Soothing rose flower oil calms skin sensitivity.

(5.1 oz.)

      I use this cleanser every day. It's gentle for my slightly sensitive/aging skin yet as the name says, it does get rid of some of the dry skin cells. It's creamy but not oily. I love it!

        This provides effective exfoliation without abrasion. I use it once a day, though the instructions say you can use it twice. I think that would be too drying for my skin. I always follow with Dermologica Active Moist moisturize. I have middle aged normal to oily skin that tends to be reactive but so far so good.

                  • Q:

                    I'm 41 and have been using Dermalogica products for about a year. I'm contemplating a switch to the Age Smart line. Can you please suggest a daily regimen to diminish fine lines around my eyes, as well as frown lines between my brows? My skin is sensitive and dries out easily. I've been using the Precleanse, followed by special cleansing gel, total eye care, toner spray and skin smoothing cream with no problems at all. Thank you!

                      Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend staying with the products you are currently using and adding in the following Age Smart products: MAP-15 Regenerator to target problem areas. Age Reversal Eye Complex at night on the eye area. MultiVitamin Power Recovery Masque and switching your toner to Antioxidant HydraMist. These few additions will help to target the signs of aging and prevent them from developing more.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. How long have you been using your products? It is normal to experience some breakouts when ever you start a new product line. We do not recommend using this cleanser if the MediBac line is causing you more breakouts. Our Dermal Clay Cleanser would be a better option for cleansing and making sure to exfoliate regularly and us your clay based masque such as Charcoal Relief Masque 2-3 times a weeks.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Skin Resurfacing Cleanser is an exfoliating cleanser which can help eliminate milla with regular use. Also, you should check your skin care products and make sure you are not using anything with mineral oil or petroleum that are clogging you follicles. Make sure to also use a clay based masque 2-3 times a week to help prevent future millia from forming.

                      Hello Ruchu,

                      Thank you for your inquiry. This cleanser is not a good choice for someone with sensitive skin. It would be better for you to use a gentle cleanser and Daily Microfoliant. Daily Microfoliant is gentle yet still exfoliates and brightens the skin to even skin tone. Use sunscreen every day and to intensify brightening results use C-12 Power Bright Serum, Pure Light SPF50 and Pure Night daily.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. This cleanser will help to even skin tone and keep follicles clear. This cleanser is very active so start out using it once every other day. It is also important to use a clay based masque like Sebum Clearing Masque to reduce the amount of oil in your follicles. For enlarged pores our Clearing Mattifier will help to reduce the size of the follicle opening with daily use.

This moisturizer have hydroxyl acids that will gently remove dead skin cells through out the day. Be sure to use sunscreen when exposed to uv light to prevent hyperpigmentation.

                      Hello Malia,
                      Skin Resurfacing Cleanser is a highly active exfoliating cleanser and is not the best choice for sensitive skin. Daily Microfoliant is a gentle daily exfoliant that would be a better choice for your skin. We recommend using Daily Microfoliant 3-4 times a week to start and then adjust accordingly. The Ultra Calming line will compliment this exfoliant and help to address sensitivity.

                      Skin Resurfacing Cleanser is a highly active formula. Frequency of use depends on skin condition. If skin experiences sensitivity or dehydration from daily use, reduce use to 2-3 times per week.

                      A:

                      This product is formulated with gently exfoliating and hydrating lactic acid to resurface the skin, improving skin texture and clarity. It does not contain glycolic acid or retinol.

                      This cleanser works best within a regimen of other Dermalogica Age Smart products. To further help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, we suggest Age Smart Mutlivitamin Power Serum (Item #: 2251060), which contains vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate), as well as vitamins C & E, to counteract the visible effects of aging:
