Okay.... so I have a question about Dermalogica's Ultracalming Cleanser AND Special Cleansing Gel.

Every year, my skin seems to build up a tolerance to the systems I use. First, it was proactiv that bombed on me. And then I switched to Origins which literally saved my life! I still have nothing against origins... but it's my skin! Everytime I switch products.. it works wonders.. but a year later (almost down to the month!) my skin flares up and it seems like it'll never stop.

My skin is VERY sensitive. So I need something that calms irritated skin while cleansing really well. I'm using a retinol to battle the acne (dermatologist told me that all this time I've been surpressing the deep infection.. and that is why it tries to come out once my skin gets use to the products). So, for about 5 weeks now.. my skin has exploded. I'm using Cetaphil (soap, fragrance, and dye free cleanser for irritated skin)... and it's working fairly well.

My question is... has anyone tried Dermalogica's Ultracalming Cleanser OR Special Cleansing Gel? I want to get back into a 3-step system once the retinol is done repairing my skin.

Which would be best for extremely sensitive skin? Ultracalming Cleanser or Special Cleansing Gel?

Please help... I've got so little time to decide!!

I bought the ultracalming cleanser and the soothing protection spray as well!

How do you like thier moisturizers? I have such a hard time finding the right moisturizer.. the only thing that doesn't piss off my skin is Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Time Complex capsules. And they're not even real moisturizers.. but because they're completely free of fragrance and irritants.. it's all I can use now

the barrier repair is this really light stuff...
it's not a cream or a gel but something like i have never seen anywhere else..

just a little bit while your skin is still damp from the spray seems to really do the trick without leaving any residue or greasy feeling...

I looked around online... it's so expensive Are the tubes large or small? I can't think of what 1 oz looks like.

one fluid ounze is about 30mls or 2 tablespoons.
they may be a bit more expensive, but i find that their products are work really well and a little bit usually goes a long way!! my 3-4oz moisturizer usually lasts me at about 4-5 months (so an ounze would last about a month or so). hope that puts things in perspective.

i don't work for the company, i just love their products!!

I use the Dermal Clay Cleanser and the Daily Microfoliant. I also like the Multivitamin Power Treatment Masque. I buy the professional sizes from eBay sellers, you get a better deal per ounce.

I never cared for their moisturizers and toners, but I don't care for most moisturizers and toners. All of the products I've used from them have quite alot of herbal ingredients that sensitive skins might have problems with--it works wonders for me though.

I bought mine on strawberrynet.. got the much bigger professional size.. the bigger size cost more ofcourse..but was a bargain compare to the standard size Barrier Repair.

I really like the masque...it's a bit weird how it turns orangy on your skin.
I regret purchasing it at my local beautician tho'.. I almost paid twice what I would have had I bought in on say hqhair.com

The professional Enviromental Control Serum

Dermalogica's professional line is more potent than the general line (so I have been told by my beautician), unfortunately it is hard to come by other places that ebay... in fact I don't think I've seen any professional products for sale anywhere besides strawberrynet and ebay)

Bon I've never had any problems, but you should visit a beautician in your area that uses Dermalogica..they are good with samples.

I haven't post anything here?

I Dermalogica. I have:

Anti-bac Skin Wash
Medicated Clearing Gel (which is pure WOW)
Multivitamin Power Concentrate Capsules
Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask

I think Dermalogica is the best brand. If you know your skin and what you really need they will work wonders.

I'm thinking about bying the daily microfoliant. I've read some great reviews here.
