    Comments about Dermalogica UltraCalming Barrier Repair:

    I have a couple of sun damage spots on my face that can become red and the skin gets dry. This keeps the skin from drying out and peeling as long as I use it twice a day. It lasts a long time, since I only use it on the problem areas.

        By DeDe

        from Danville Pa

        Comments about Dermalogica UltraCalming Barrier Repair:

        This stuff saved my skin. I had terrible cystic acne for a good year, but with a few tweaks in my regimen and adding this as my last step morning and night I do not have near as many acne issues. I still get a few pimples but usually just small whiteheads now. I have bought at least 7 tubes of this stuff and will always continue to purchase.

                    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.

                        Barrier Repair is just that, a barrier. It is always the last thing you will apply to lock in moisture from your other products and lock out irritants!

                        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,

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.

                        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.

                        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 have oily skin in Summer and combo skin in winter. I started using barrier repair moisturizer. But im having breakout with it. 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.
