Thursday Reviews | Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream | April 28, 2011

April 28, 2011

So I recently did some traveling to the snow and realized I had once again forgot a moisturizer!  And super cold weather and no moisturizer is not a good combo.  So I rummaged through my makeup bag and came up with a little sample of Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream.  It had plenty in it to last the 5 days I would be away, so I decided to give it a try.  I have never tried any Dermalogica before so I was hesitant. My experience with the company was only with the over pushy reps that wanted me to invest 5-7K in a brand I wasn’t to sure about.  So I usually ignored the brand as a whole.  I received some samples at an event I attended a few months back and chucked them in my makeup bag to giveaway.  So glad I kept this one.   I like the ingredients of Vitamins C & E, Silk proteins and aloe.  All good things for my skin.  The feel was nice and light.  This is definitely not a heavy moisturizer (which I prefer) but it worked for me.  I didn’t breakout and my skin didn’t become dry in the rough, cold mountain air.  I layered it with Sonya Dakar’s Omega Oil in Clear, and Jan Marini’s C-esta Serum along with Rhonda Allisons SPF Daytime Defense.  Alone it wasn’t enough moisture for my skin and really didn’t help with makeup application.  But layered it was a dream.
Overall:  4 stars could have been 5 but the smell was weird and I like a product that can stand alone.
Thank you to Dermalogica for the picture!
