I have become a big fan of the Dermalogica products.
Since my previous blog Dermalogica Facial I have become a big fan of the Dermalogica products, and was obviously very happy to be invited to the Dermalogica Bloggers event at their show room in Kensington West London.
Upon arrival I was given a Goodie bag, introduced to the other bloggers then told to help myself to the selection of healthy goodies they had on offer.
Much like the Dermalogica products and their packaging the showroom and the treatment rooms are white with minimal adornment or decoration giving it a clinical, no frills, no nonsense feel.
After a quick snack and chat I was ushered to the facial bar where I had Face mapping analysis of my face completed by one of the technicians and a consultation about the products that I was currently using and how I could make them more effective for my skin problems.
I was currently using the Dermalogica Oily Skin Kit which consisted of the:
• Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser
• Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner
• Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion
• Dermalogica Skin Prep Scrub
The results of my Face mapping analysis said that my skin was Oily in some areas but at the same time dehydrated in others and prone to break outs.
It was recommended that I try using the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant every day to help shift some of the dead skin, this can be used by its self or mixed in with the Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser and the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster to add extra hydration to my skin by either applying it directly to my face or mixing it with the Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner.
After the consultations were finished myself and the other bloggers were ushered in to the training room where we was introduced to the founder of Dermalogica Jane Wurwand; who explained to us how after moving to LA in the early 80's she noticed that there were no product lines available at that that embraced her belief of "Skin health as opposed to beauty," so she so set about developing her own products which were free of common irritants and ingredients that could cause breakouts such as lanolin, SD alcohol, mineral oil, artificial colors and fragrances. In 1986, Dermalogica was born.
With the belief "Truly understanding your skin is the first step towards a lifetime of skin health" Dermalogica products are only available to purchase from a Dermalogica professional skin therapist who will have to 1st will decode your skin – zone by zone – before advising the customer what products would best suite their needs insuring the best possible results.
We were then treated to a tutorial session which gave us the opportunity to try out the recommended products on our selves with the Beauty technician making sure that we were applying the right amounts correctly maximizing the effectiveness of the products.
Once the tutorial was over we were given the opportunity to talk to the Technicians questions about the products.
And as if an evening learning about great products that will ultimately improve the health of my skin wasn't enough my Goodie bag included the following products:
• Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
• Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
• Dermalogica Active Moist
• Dermalogica Booster Trio
This is great as I intended to purchase the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant and the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster anyway.
