Dermalogica Age Smart skin resurfacing cleanser

Posted in skincare with tags , , , , , on June 23, 2009 by LPB

This smoothing cleanser provides an exceptional beginning to your anti-aging regimen. It delicately removes dirt, debris, excess oil and makeup, leaving the skin fresh and pure.

Lactic acid exfoliates away dead skin cells while hydrating and brightening the skin.

Rose flower oil calms sensitivity, and vitamin E provides antioxidant protection, conditioning, and softening benefits all while locking in moisture for a plumper, more supple complexion.

Developed for mature and prematurely aging skin, this gentle cleanser prepares the skin for further treatment, leaving it perfectly cleansed, soft and comfortable.


I had read about reviews of this cleanser in Makeupalley, most of the users were complaining that this powerful cleanser tends to dry up the skin and is too low foaming for an effective cleansing.

It doesn’t make my retin A treated skin flaky or irritated ( may be my skin had accustomed to “harsh” treatment after retinoid acid ). It smell is not as rosy as i would prefer. However, it does clean reasonably well, leaves my skin smooth & bright.

I found a way to make it foamy enough for my preference; i apply it on dry face, like any other milky cleanser, massage it all over, then add in a handful of luke warmth water. The emulsified solution will foams, and in my opinion, a rather dense fine foam!

I also use it all over my body as an exfoliant /moisturiser, without any adverse effect. I purchased this product in salon size!

My encounter with VL begins with the lovely facial self tan; it’s truly one of its kind, giving an amazing glow &  incredible tan ( as opposed to hideous, orange, fake tan )and smells nothing like your usual fake tan ( you know that sickening artificial smell! ) 

VL has a fantasticskin care range as well, here are few of the star products:

Collagen Firming Mask : PURE WRINKLE DEFENCE 
‘The collagen firming mask has proved dramatically effective for tired damaged skin – you can see the difference in tone and suppleness immediately’ 
The collagen firming mask has also proved very effective for those with eczema or extremely dry skin conditions.
The collagen firming mask is the busy woman’s must have, especially if you need to look better now. Its super charged extracts leave the skin so firm yet soft that you’ll look like you’ve had a great night’s sleep, even if you’ve been up till all hours.

The collagen firming mask is so superb for dried out, hung over moments, that you should make sure to give yourself a 10 minute treat if you’re suffering from the ‘morning after’ look. Watch your skin drink it in. No, not drink – positively gulp, as you put back the moisture and nutrition it so badly needs.

Daily Skin Firm Serum : WHEN LESS IS MORE 
The daily skin firm serum with collagen is all the nutrition your skin needs in one exceptional product.

‘anyone with sun damaged or smoke damaged skin will love the daily skin firm serum with collagen’

Daily skin Firm serum with collagen is an anti ageing serum that reduces puffiness around the eyes, fills in fine lines, tightens pores and protects the skin against environmental assault. Creating a protein film across the skin, the skin firm serum is particularly effective for protection against smoke and sun damage.

As with all the products, Daily Skin Firm serum with collagen contains the water magnet Hyaluron. This amazing ingredient is critical for anti ageing treatments as it works along with collagen and elastin to maintain the flexibility and resilience of youthful skin. Collagen rods hold the skin up, Elastin lets the skin stretch and bounce back, and what it bounces back on to is Hyaluron. Daily Skin Firm serum is a must for anyone from 30 – 45 who is concerned to keep their skin looking as fresh and youthful as possible.

Coral Silk Deep Daily Moisture : LIGHT RELIEF 
‘Deep daily moisture with collagen makes the skin feel like velvet’

Coral Silk Deep Daily Moisture with Collagen is a light, fluid anti ageing moisturiser that penetrates deep into the surface of the skin, softening, smoothing and refining on the way. With Hyaluron for truly strong youthful skin, deep daily moisture with collagen delivers daily protection, nutrition and rejuvenating properties. Once you’ve tried it, you won’t want to be without it, and when you use Deep Daily Moisture along with Daily Skin Firm Serum with collagen, you couldn’t be giving your skin a better chance to look as youthful, healthy and glowing as it possibly can.

Deep Cleansing Mask

A very unusual deep cleansing mask, this product will not only remove clogging toxins that cause dull, blemished skin, but will also nourish and tighten to rehydrate the skin. A must have product for anyone who loves the feeling of fresh, clean, perfect skin.
