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.

A god send!

Finally, a product that has made a huge difference to my skin.

I have very dry and dehydrated skin, as well as environmental allergies that meant my skin alternated between puffy & red and scaly, dry and very very sore - particularly around my eyes. I tried all sorts of products, including other Dermalogica stuff from the ultra calming range, and whilst it helped for the duration of a few hours, if I forgot to reapply within 24 hours I was back to square one. As soon as I tried barrier repair my skin felt soothed - it was like a loving hug for my skin! :) After a couple of weeks of using just this, my skin is less red, more even in tone, nowhere near as dry (or puffy) and just looks so much better!

It might be expensive but in my opinion worth every penny - I'm never using anything else again!

need another cream under it

By

I have skin that flare up easily. My face has problems of redness and dryness. This works wells like a seal after I apply another cream first, basically I can't live without it. By itself it doesn't work well plus you have to use a lot and its expensive. I wish there would be an actual facial cream come out for the ultra calming line to pair up with the barrier repair.

I use Barrier Repair over my face serum. I actually do feel that I have a barrier between my sensitive skin and all of those elements out there. Plus, I love the way it feels on my skin.

works great as a primer too!

By 

from Undisclosed

Verified Buyer
Site Member

I use this as a primer when my skin is extra dry or sensitive. I also make sure to apply this before I go skiing to protect any exposed area from chaffing. You only need a small amount otherwise it may not absorb and roll off the skin. Also, be sure to allow any other moisturizers to absorb before applying this. The tube seems to last forever!

  • 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?

      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.

      Kind Regards,
      The Dermalogica Team

      Hello,

      Thank you for your question. At night, you can use Barrier Repair over Ultra Calming Serum Concentrate. During the day, you can use Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30 or Ultra Sensitive Tint SPF 30 on top of Ultra Calming Serum Concentrate.

      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.

      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.
