I’m going to blow my own trumpet here and say for someone who is quickly edging towards 37 years old I think my skin is pretty darn good. I don’t have that many wrinkles, and quite a lot less than other people my age. Apart from doing the obvious – I stay out of the sun, use an SPF, don’t smoke and I drink a lot of water – the main reason I think my skin looks as good as it does is down to my skin care routine. Twice a day I cleanse, tone, moisturise, plus I add a serum or oil. I also exfoliate regularly each week and use face masks.
Dermalogica have been a big part of skin routine in the last year and as a result I think it’s the best it’s ever looked. I used their products for years in my 20’s. When I got into beauty blogging in my 30’s I stopped using them as I was always trying out new skincare to blog about. Luckily for me though, last year Dermalogica got in touch and very kindly gifted me some of their products. Since then my skin has just got better and better. Over the years I’ve tried so many of their products, and like all skincare, there have been some that have worked and some that haven’t. But I’ve found 3 Dermalogica products that I love and that give an instant* result.
*When I say instant, I mean you don’t have to wait weeks to see a difference. You will see a difference straight away or the next morning. Which is quick compared to a lot of skin care that you may have to use 6 – 8 weeks before you see any changes.
Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift
I’ve used eye creams for ages to keep my eye area hydrated, as a normal face moisturiser can be too heavy for the delicate eye area. But that’s as much as they have ever done….. until now! This is an eye cream where you SEE results. OVERNIGHT.
The Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift (gifted) has a creamy gel consistency and is made to reduce the visible signs of stress – in my case lack of sleep and being dehydrated, which results in a dark under eye area.
When I apply this eye cream at night I wake up and look like I’ve had 8 hours + of sleep when in reality I haven’t. The skin under my eyes is brighter, less puffy and the dark circles have gone. It literally does work as quick as that!
It’s not just me that thinks this either – read the reviews on the Dermalogica website and see for yourself.
Definitely my favourite eye cream I’ve ever tried. BIG statement.

Dermalogica Rapid Reveal Peel
The Dermalogica Rapid Reveal Peel (gifted) is Dermalogica’s maximum strength exfoliant for an at-home peel. Although the instructions say to leave this product on for 3- 7 minutes I use mine overnight (I wouldn’t recommend this for all skin types though) and the next morning I’m left with a brighter more even skin tone. The best results are when you do the kick starter routine and do 3 days in a row… just wow!
Phytoactive AHA extracts, lactic acid and fermented plant enzymes help give you firmer skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines. It’s the pumpkin fruit enzyme and rice bran extract that help give you even skin tone by resurfacing the skin and increasing cell turnover. The Australian caviar lime extract provides the brightening effect.
Rapid Reveal Peel comes in a pack of 10 and although you are meant to use 1 vial per use, there is so much extra product left over that I can make it last for 2 or 3 applications. Which I think you need to do as its quite pricey – but totally worth it.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
Now when I say “instant” I mean instant when it comes to this product….. The Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant (gifted) is one of Dermalogica’s cult products which has won many beauty awards and for good reason.
The Daily Microfoliant is a very fine rice based powder that activates once mixed with water (you need a very small amount). Papain, salicylic acid and rice enzymes are the active ingredients which polish your skin and make it feel oh sooooo smooth! The best bit is you don’t have to scrub your face hashly with this stuff. It feels very gentle on the skin and even people with sensitive skin can use it, as it also contains colloidal oatmeal and allantoin which calms the skin.
One use of this miracle exfoliator and my face is left soft, smooth and brighter. Give it a go and I promise you won’t be disappointed….
