ultracalming™

Treat the multiple triggers behind inflammation for lasting relief from sensitivity flare-ups.

Itching, burning, stinging and redness are the obvious signs of sensitive skin. The triggers behind these sensations are less clear: genetics, hormones, stress, chemical assaults, foods and even aggressive skin treatments can intensify skin’s highly reactive state. The common thread behind irritation, flushing and stinging is inflammation. When paired with the loss of skin’s protective barrier, skin health is compromised and becomes highly reactive.

how it works

UltraCalming™ contains UltraCalming™ Complex, our exclusive complex clinically proven to control neurogenic and immunogenic inflammatory pathways that lead to skin sensitivity.

Does the job

By 

from Wisconsin

Comments about barrier defense booster:

My favorite thing about this is that it's so so light. You don't feel like your skin is suffocating after using it yet it does the magic. A little goes a long way. I love that you could add it to your favorite product and get benefits of both. I recieved this product complimentary from influenster

Love!

By

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I don't have dry skin but it is sensitive and have large pores and this seemed to really help smooth my skin. It looks a lot softer now when I apply my make up!

I received this product free to try from influenster in exchange for my honest opinion!

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!

By 

from Torrance, CA

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I don't even know where to begin with this product except for the fact that it will forever be a part of my skin care regimen. This is the first ever dermalogica item I've used before and boy let me tell you, if is a game changer! It makes your skin literally GLOW without adding on any extra weight or making you look like a greased piggy. I've definitely noticed how my dry skin overall has become just so much more supple and just younger looking with just a few days of using this product. I received this item for free but I am definitely going to purchase my own once I am out.

Great moisturizing oil for dry winter skin!

By 

from Lawrence KS

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I was given this product for free to try and leave an honest review. I use this alone some days or I mix it with the Calming Water Gel. I have used it once a day for the last 2 weeks and my face is no longer peeling from the harsh Kansas winter! It also has left my skin feeling softer and more supple. It smells great and keeps my skin feeling soft and moisturized all day. My only complaints are that it is a tad on the pricier side (but it lasts a long time and does work well) and I have combination skin so some area of my face get really oily within a few hours. Otherwise it's a fantastic product if you have dry winter skin!

Excellent Product

By 

from Dallas, TX

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I am a big fan! I use this in combination with the hydrating gel, I usually only use at night because the oils are too heavy for me to wear for daytime. This is perfect for travel to dry climates or air travel to keep skin supple and hydrated! It also smells amazing and did not irritate or clog my skin. Definitely recommend.

I received this product for testing purposes in exchange for my honest review.

This has changed my skin!

By 

from Washington, DC

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I've been having some crazy, unexplained break outs on my jawline and chin area and the rest of my face for quite some time. I was annoyed and trying all sorts of things. Enter this product- I use it twice a day and my skin was drastically improved within 24 hours of first using it. My skin is glowy, clear, and has never ever looked better. I can't imagine using anything else!

I was sent this product free for testing purposes.

Helping my dry, winter skin!

By 

from Asheville, NC

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I had been trying all kinds of oils and moisturizers to cure my dry, winter skin, but one week using this and I feel like a new person! My skin feels so good. I mix this with my moisturizer and it applies perfectly.

Love how this makes my skin feel!

By 

from Lubbock

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I've been using this product for a couple weeks now. I have acne prone skin so trying new products can sometimes make my skin break out. Thankfully so far, this product has not caused any breakouts! I take the barrier defense booster and mix it with my calming gel during the day and mix it with my night moisturizer at night. I do feel like I could only do at night since it does look a bit oily during the day in my combo areas. My skin feels amazing and I'm so happy with how it feels now. I did receive this product in exchange for a unbiased review. This will definitely be added to my night skin care routine and definitely worth the money! You've found a lifelong customer in me!

Soothing Oil

By 

from KC, MO

Comments about barrier defense booster:

This is a nice, soothing oil that's not too heavy. I like the packaging better than other oils that I have with a dropper. I prefer mixing this in with moisturizer to just using on it's own. My skin is definitely softer when using this! I received this product for free for testing purposes, but all opinions are my own.
