Dermalogica – My New Skincare Routine

Ad- This is a sponsored post with Dermaoliga. All opinions are my own.

Somebody pinch me! I’m now a skin influencer for Dermalogica.

I have only ever had great things to say about this brand and I really can’t wait to chat with you all about my new skincare routine. I have always suffered from dry skin, especially in Winter, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. I have been using Dermalogica for around a month now and I have 100% noticed a difference. My skin is looking fresh, smooth and hydrated. Let’s get started and dive straight in to my new skincare routine!

Step 1: Precleanse

Using dry hands, massage over a dry face to remove oil and dirt. (quick tip – always read the instructions as I went straight in with cotton pads galore: FYI not needed. This is my first ever precleanse (I know what you’re thinking – where’s this girl been all her life) as I just didn’t know that this needed to be done but I am so happy that I tried it. This precleanse removes waterproof makeup and even sunscreen. So, like I was saying, use dry hands and massage over a dry face and then wet your hands to create a light, creamy paste before rinsing it off.

Step 2: Special Cleansing Gel

This is perfect to use every day as it’s super lightweight, is soap free, removes impurities, gently foams away toxins (which is perfect if you live in the city) and leaves your skin feeling super soft and smooth. This is all down to the special ingredients – balm-mint and lavender. I’m currently using this product every morning and evening and I can honestly say I’m loving it so far. I can really tell the difference with my skin, it literally leaves my skin glowing which is a result I have been aiming for a long time now.

Step 3: Daily Microfoliant

This daily microfoliant is my best friend and I have fallen in love with it for sure. Within a few days, I noticed a huge difference in the brightness of my skin and my pores being less visible – this is a problem I have suffered with for years now and so far so good with this product. I have been using this daily microfoliant every evening and I shall keep you all updated how I get on with it over on my stories on Instagram in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out for that. Just to let you all know it’s a rice-based powder product and you only need a small amount as it activates when your hands are wet.

Step 4: Skin Smoothing Cream

After your cleansing ritual, you will need a moisturiser to achieve that beautiful end result you’ve been after. The skin smoothing cream is a perfect hydration moisturiser that I couldn’t live without. I use this product every morning and evening to keep my skin hydrated. It may be a small bottle but a little goes a long way.

Step 5: Skinperfect Primer

I sometimes apply the primer after using the skin smoothing cream if I’m wearing makeup. You can apply the primer even if you’re not wearing makeup but I tend to save it for when I really need it. It perfectly preps your skin and helps provide a more even skin tone. As I’m getting older I am more conscious of avoiding sun damage and that’s why I’m always protecting myself. This skin primer is a SPF 30 which is definitely going to help keep the wrinkles at bay and I apply it even when it’s raining.

So, there you have it. I’m super proud to be a skin influencer for Dermalogica and review their amazing products. I can highly recommend all of the above and I encourage you to try them out.

    The Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel is EVERYTHING. Omg I totally fell in love with this cleanser and I’m definitely going to re-invest soon. The Daily Microfoliant has always appealed to me and as soon as I read that it helped with your pores, I’m fully on board and you’ve convinced me to check this product out. I love your photography, it’s really fun πŸ™‚ thanks for sharing x
