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.

      Gentle, Silky, and Soothing!

      By 

      from Eugene, Or.

      Comments about barrier repair:

      My skin is prone to being dry and itchy even after moisturizing, because of it's lack of a natural barrier. This product makes ALL the difference. Immediately after dabbing on and rubbing in a pea size amount in by problem spots, I feel relief, as if Barrier Repair is healing my skin at an unbelievable rate. And a little goes a long way, which is great! Anybody with unhappy, sensitive skin should give this product a go.

      Great for cold weather

      By 

      from USA

      Comments about barrier repair:

      It gets very cold where I live in the winter and it can be very hard on sensitive skin. Barrier repair keeps my skin from drying out and becoming red or inflamed during the winter months. I also love to use it as a primer for make up. It makes my skin feel like velvet and has a matte finish so it's not over moisturizing like some primers can be.

      Better than a prescription!

      By 

      from Palatine, IL

      Comments about barrier repair:

      I don't know how or why this works. But I was getting large, dry scaly skin patches all over my face. I used a prescription that a dermatologist gave me and the patches would improve but come back again. I used the barrier repair and overnight, the patches calmed down. Within only a couple of days, they were gone! It makes my skin feel great and doesn't leave it looking greasy. It is a little pricey - wish it could be a little more affordable. But I am happy with the results!

      I really love this product. I have never been one to actually use the products that I buy on a daily basis, but this made my face feel so good I went thru 3 o these in the past few months. Highly recommend.

      Soft protection

      By 

      from Russia

      Comments about barrier repair:

      When I first tried this product I felt unusual feelings due to the cream texture. It doesn't contain water and looks like a gel. But when I put it on my face I felt like I have a delicate film which protects my face. The skin remains soft and hydrated even during cold winter time.

      Comments about barrier repair:

      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

      Comments about barrier repair:

      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.

      • 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,

          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

        • 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.

        • 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.
