Check your ingredients

By Hanalei

Comments about Dermalogica UltraCalming Barrier Repair:

This is basically a great, but expensive, makeup primer. Those first ingredients are all plastics and prevent the good ingredients (at the bottom) from being absorbed. But they do fill in pores and fine lines wonderfully. I wouldn't recommend this for any ongoing skin concern such as irritation or dryness.

          It's a small tube for a lot of money. It doesn't spread well so you have to use a large amount to get good coverage. I don't think it feels moisturizing or hydrating. It does leave your skin feeling smooth. It feels more like a primer than a moisturizer.

            Comments about Dermalogica UltraCalming Barrier Repair:

            This product was the miracle I needed. I get dry flaky patches on my eye lids when I use retinol and this is the only thing that heals it and in only 1-2 nights. It also works great on my dry chapped nose when I've got a cold. i lobe the slippery, smooth feel it gives my skin and how quickly it absorbs.

                    Hello Sheila:

                    Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. We do not recommend a particular type of foundation to use with the Barrier Repair. We suggest that you test out the foundation before purchasing to see if it is compatible with the Barrier Repair. We suggest that you let the Barrier Repair absorb on the face before applying the foundation.

                    Best Regards,

                    The Dermalogica Team

Will barrier repair help? right now I use the dermal clay cleanser, barrier repair, solar defense booster and skinperfect primer age smart to assist with redness. I never use face make-up other than shadow, liner and mascara.

                    A:

                    Thank you for your inquiry. Barrier Repair is not a treatment product. We recommend that you see your Ulta therapist for a Face Mapping and product recommendation. A series of Power Resurfacing Peels will help to even your skin tone and texture. Overnight Retinol Repair can be used at home to maximize your results.

I also don't like the scent. I love how the Barrier Repair feels on my skin and what it does, but I don't know if it would be compatible with the oil.

                    Thank you for your question. Barrier Repair is silicone based so I would just be mindful when applying it to the eye area as you don't want the silicone to get into your eye. I hope you find this helpful and if you have further questions please don't hesitate to ask.

I used the skin smoothing cream by dermalogica,that also gave me a mild breakout. What can i do now? I use the dermalogica daily exfoliator 2/3 times a week and use dermalogica gel cleanser.They r working very well for me. I'm having a hard time finding the right moisturizer for my skin. My skin is acne prone.

                    A:

                    Thank you for your inquiry. Barrier Repair will not help remove scars. It will help skin to heal by protecting the skin and allowing the barrier layer to recover however, this product does not brighten or exfoliate to reduce the appearance of pre-existing scars. To reduce scars we recommend using MultiVitamin Thermafoliant, MultiVitamin Power Recovery masque and MultiVitamin Power Recovery Serum. Also, be sure to wear Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 during the day.
