Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing!
This ultracalming serum, used with the other products in this line, is a game changer for dry, irritated skin. I have rosacea and eczema.....this product line has changed my line.
Most Helpful Critical Review not effective for sensitivity
I've used the Ultra Calming Serum Concentrate for approximately 8 weeks, in conjunction with Dermalogica's other UltraCalming products.
I have to say that I have NOT observed any ostensible reduction in skin sensitivity. The directions instruct you to apply generously, but be careful: applying too much can actually increase sensitivity.
Be aware of what you wish to treat. If your greatest concern about sensitivity stems from visible redness of the skin, I would discourage you from buying this product. I'm unsure how Dermalogica measures sensitivity, but after 8 weeks and hundreds of dollars, this product and its sister products, a putative combination of peptides and oat botanicals, has done nothing to reduce my redness.

Sensitive, Sensitized and dry. I think I'm all three. I'm used to layering moisture products on my natural Black hair. I know the benefits. This product is new to me. I never quite understood the serums concept until I damaged my own skin with makeup remover wipes where I got what can only be described as a chemical burn. After the stinging ended I was left with scaly dry patches all over my face: forehead, cheeks, nose, and upper lip. Terrible! I've been doing a lot of camera work making online content and my make up sat on top of that dryness and looked horrible. These products healed and restored my skin. I will layer products like I do with my hair. I am also aware of the benefits of using fine skincare products. This serum is light, creamy with no yucky fragrance. Used with barrier repair - it was the missing link I didn't use before. It just works.
An absolute staple in my lineup
Marissa from Atlanta GA
I cannot rave enough about this product. If I'm feeling tight, itchy, irritated... this is the first thing I reach for. Its hydrating, soothing, and my favorite serum to layer with calm water gel and intensive moisture balance.
I love this product!!!
Okie Girl from Oklahoma City, Ok

Healed my eczema!!!
Jamie from Fitzgerald Dr, Pinole, CA
I have always had really bad, painfully dry and tight skin around my mouth. I went into the Pinole, CA location just looking for a few things but their skin specialist took notice of me and she was a god send, she noticed I have eczema and she already knew that I couldn't really move my mouth much without it hurting because she said she also suffered from eczema, but I couldn't tell AT ALL. She recommended that I first buy the ultra calming skin set to try out the product. She advised to use it like a mask on my eczema and, bless her beautiful soul, because IT WORKED!!!! I can not only move my face because my skin was completely hydrated, but also that I found the redness of the area went down a lot. Truly a miracle working product, if I can put it on super dehydrated, damaged, ultra sensitive skin, almost anyone can use this!!!!
This stuff is MAGIC
Danielle from Chicago, IL
I bought this product a while back in the hopes that it would dull the general redness I have around my mouth and nose. In full disclosure, it did not work for me in that way. I tried it for a couple of weeks before putting it on a shelf. Then I got pregnant and one of my lovely pregnancy symptoms is hormonal acne all over my back (I know...). I was battling this new problem for a while before I remembered this product and tried it on my back. HOLY MAGIC LIQUID FROM THE HEAVENS! In ONE use, my back went from having dark red bumps all over to bringing those down to more of a peachy, WAY less noticeable color. Some of the spots disappeared completely. It did not clear my acne nor did it treat any active breakouts (it doesn't claim to), but it brings the discoloration down significantly. I've used this time and time again with the same, incredible results. I would highly recommend this product for people who are in a similar situation. I wonder if it would do the same for people who struggle with hormonal acne on the face. I would say it is definitely worth a shot.
Yes I will buy again.

The ultra calming serum along the the ultra calming kit has saved my skin! I have very sensitive skin along with rosacea. I just about 2 weeks time it has significantly reduced my redness and inflammation.
My new obsession

I have rosacea and have found these products are by far the best for me to use. Actually pick a skin care specialist based primarily on experience with treating my condition and using these products.
Calms my irritated skin
Kalika from Philadelphia, PA
I have extremely sensitive skin. I am usually red around my nose and mouth, but this stuff makes rat go away! I use it at night before the overnight retinol repair, in the morning, and as part of my skin prep before makeup. I didn't think it would make a difference in how my makeup goes on, but it makes my foundation application even more smooth. My skin loves to break out at the drop of a hat, but that was not the case with this!

I stop using it, so there is no trouble
Jess from Virginia
I've struggled with mild rosacea/sensitive red skin for years, and I'm only 23. Any moisturizer too heavy would leave me broken out and more irritated. My skin has never looked or felt better since starting this 2 weeks ago. I use it 2x a day after washing my face and my skin is so much happier. I'd recommend to anyone with red/sensitive skin! It's expensive but so worth it!
I am in love with UltraCalming Serum!
Wendy from IL
I have found the 1 thing that really works on my redness in cheeks. I use the entire line of Utra Calming and just love the results. The products feel like they are hydrating my skin and I feel less irritation over all. I feel more confident as a result of this product, my skin has a more even tone and feels soft and hydrated.
Skin has never looked better
Scubagal from Chandler, AZ
I tried Dermalogica UltraCalming Serum Concentrate based on reviews where people mentioned redness relief. I have sensitive skin with rosacea and periodic breakouts that I believe to be the result of a course of *ccutane many years ago. I used to go through spans of time where my skin would be so red and flakey that nothing helped. After the first few uses, my skin started to look and feel much better with a dramatic reduction in redness.
I usually prefer unscented products. This does have a slight fragrance from the natural ingredients, but It is not overwhelming. It feels very soothing when applied, and absorbs quickly. I use this morning and night, and a little goes a long way.
I am now on my third bottle; it is worth every penny.
This is the first time in my adult life that I wake up every morning to clear, smooth skin. Love this product!
Have been using this product for many years!
Jean from Holiday, FL
I have been using this product for several years. I recently switched to Calm Water Gel and it isn't as good. I went back to this. This is the best face cream I have ever used.
Combination skin with Redness and acne prone
NARS from Arizona
This has been my go to for a year now I have oily combination skin,acne prone, and redness. Calmed the redness down within a week. A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY FOR OILY SKIN IF YOU OVER APPLY IT WILL CLOG PORES BUT IF YOU APPLY A SMALL AMOUNT YOU WILL HAVE NO PROBLEM. Hasn't made me Breakout. I apply this after applying origins Mega-Mushroom relief and resilience soothing treatment lotion (which is actually a toner) and works perfect ! Have bought this serum 2 times already.
Not for me....
Kj from NC
I absolutely love Dermalogica but this product did not work for me. When I started using it I completely broke out. I wanted to give this product the benefit of the doubt because I really do love this brand so I stopped using it for a month and then started using it again and sadly, I started to break out again. My skin is not prone to pimples, I have trouble with blackheads and the occasional bump here and there but I never get full blown pimples and I got them both times when using this stuff. Looks like it works for some people but it was definitely not for me. Not sure what I'm going to do with it now.
True to it's claim
Boo from San Francisco
I use it twice daily. It has helped calmed down my sensitive skin, redness and eczema significantly. It will be part of my skin care routine moving forward. Wished it weren't so expensive but it's a must since it works so well.
I would buy this product again and again
KenW from New Jersey
This skin serum leaves my skin so soft it's unbelievable. It's better than anything I've ever used.
Wow, this really works!
danibomb from CA
I am consistently amazed by this product. I often get itchy, burning, red, sensitized patches on my face. It's almost like the deep layer of my skin is inflamed, it becomes very uncomfortable and red. I think it's mostly due to use of sunscreen and being in the heat (getting sweaty). I woke up this morning with another flare up. I was so worried and upset and uncomfortable.
I immediately reached for this product, and (no joke!) within MINUTES the redness and tingling was GONE. Within an hour, it's almost not noticeable. Truly a miracle product. I had only gotten the sample size before (in the kit), and now I'm buying the full size.
SO WORTH IT!
I love this product since I have extremely sensitive skin.
Robin from Suffolk, VA
I adore all the Dermalogica Products and use the entire line.
great product for redness
Jay from Philadelphia
I had red bumbs under my neck from plucking hairs/shaving (which becomes irritated and sometime causes scabbing. Putting the serum on after using the cleanser in the morning and at night is a blessing! It really calms the skin and makes the blemishes diminish and the scabs heal.
Holister from Chicago
My sensitive skin has been driving me nuts. But this addition after I cleanse makes it much better!
Wonderful for decreasing size of raised age spots
