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.

Highly recommend for dry, flaky, sensitive skin

By 

from Kent, UK

Comments about barrier repair:

I recently got diagnosed with Blepharitis which is condition of red, dry skin around the eyes. I had tried various creams and ointments prescribed by my GP and none seemed to work. After using the barrier repair for 2/3 weeks my skin is back to normal! This has been pretty life changing for me as I was beginning to get very down about my skin and not being able to find a cure. I'd highly recommend this product! The only downside is the price.

This whole line (calming) has been a breath of fresh air. I have been thru so many regimes and I had no hope of my skin returning to normal. I was so irritated and this just took all the pain and dryness away!

My go to!

By

Comments about barrier repair:

This product was recommended to me from my facialist. I had some sensitive areas that I wanted to try to get rid of. I was using this once daily and it really helped. I never tried it as an all over moisturizer but I'm sure it would be great. Love it!

Healthy Skin Staple

By 

from Cincinnati, OH

Comments about barrier repair:

This moisturizer is hands down the best (and weirdest) moisturizer I've ever used. Weird only because the texture is not at all what I would ever think my favorite moisturizer to be, but here we are.

It's all in the name - it creates a soft, velvety, breathable barrier that even a MINNESOTA WINTER WIND didn't get through. That's a winner right there.

Perfect for frigid temperatures

By 

from Calgary, Canada

Comments about barrier repair:

Come winter when the temperatures drop to as low as -20 degrees Celsius I will apply this on top of my usual skin care regimen (toner-serum-moisturiser-oil) and seal in all the goodness. I find that my skin is less red and irritated even when exposed to varying temperatures throughout the day (heater on full blast in the office and outdoor wind chills) I don't have flaky skin when I get home, just the right level of moisture every time! Barrier Repair indeed. One star off for the price, wish it can be a wee bit less expensive!

Perfect for winter time dry flaky skin.

By 

from Vancouver, wa

Comments about barrier repair:

This product is an actual must for my skin during winter time. My skin becomes really dry and flaky to the point i can't put on makeup w/o people noticing. Started using this and its almost in a way like a chap stick for your skin, totally protects It while offering you a moisturizer, and it helps my makeup go on evenly.

Love this product

By 

from Toronto, Canada

Comments about barrier repair:

I have struggled with sensitive skin my entire life, discovering the UltraCalming line has been honestly been life changing. I do not get struggle with rashes and breakouts any longer. The one issue I am currently having though, is the barrier repair does not moisturize my skin enough. I often feel like I need to keep layering it on. Wondering if anyone knows of a product that won't harm my sensitive skin and give me the moisture I am currently missing?

  • Q:

    How long does it take for you to get used to the product? I have used it for a few days and my cheeks are still pretty red and tight. I have rosacea and I was hoping this would help, as nothing else seems to. I'm just not sure if I should return the product to the spa as it was expensive.

      A:

      Dear Heather,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Only a doctor can diagnose and treat Rosacea. That being said, the Ultra Calming products can help the symptoms associated with Rosacea, like redness, itchiness, etc. The symptoms may not go away over night, but they can be managed.

      Kind Regards,

  • Q:

    I have an extremely sensitive skin, I was wondering if I should use the barrier repair as a moisturizer in the morning and the evening and if I should use on top of it in the mornings the ultra sensitive tint SPF 30 as a sun protector? how do the both of them work together?

  • Q:

    Is barrier repair suitable for breakouts?: I am recently prone to breakouts though I had never in my life suffered from acne so I put it down mainly to work stress. I use your age smart range mostly but I have tried your clearing mattifier too. With enough rest my spots clear but as soon as I get stressed or overwork myself within 5 minutes breakouts appear. Would you recommend barrier repair as a solution to guard the skin or a different product?

    • A:

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please do not use Barrier Repair on breakout prone skin. Instead, try Ultra Calming Mist to hydrate and calm, and Breakout Control to spot treat.

    • A:

      Thank you for your inquiry. The shelf life of Barrier Repair is marker by a symbol of an open container with a number on it. This symbolizes the number of months this product is good for after it has been opened. It is best to store your products at room temperature. There is no need to refrigerate or freeze your product. Thank you!

  • Q:

    Can I use barrier repair over my prescribed dermalogica moisturizer as a primer?: In my case barrier repair don't give me the moisture I need as my skin is slightly dehydrated and is lacking water, however I love the feel of it and the way it makes my skin so soft. It has the same texture as a primer. Would my skin benefit from using it as a primer?
    Asked on 6/30/2013 by Smly from Canada

    3 answers

    • A:

      You can absolutely use this over your moisturizer but as a primer, it depends on the formula of your foundation or whatever you're going to be using over the Barrier Repair. Some foundations don't react well and will streak or "ball up". You'll have to test to know.

      Answered on 9/9/2013 by Cancervive from Florida
    • A:

      Per my dermologica aesthetician, yes you can. I usually mix mine with the solar booster and it provides adequate moisture, and it works great as a primer likewise.
