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.

Comments about barrier repair:

I have no idea how this manages to feel so soft and silky without being greasy in the slightest. It absorbs quickly and lasts all day. I get stubborn dry patches on my cheeks and temples year round and nothing cleared them up and kept them away as quickly as just a little bit of this stuff. I've also used it on my knuckles during winter. 10/10, there are not enough stars.

Awesome moisturizer with Matte finish

By

Comments about barrier repair:

This product is the best. It feels like your applying butter to your face. I never found a product that makes your skin feel so soft and hydrated without feeling greasy. This product actually leaves your face with an awesome matte look and soft at the same time.

Great addition for winter!

By 

from Boston, USA

Comments about barrier repair:

I've been coming back to the barrier repair the last few years and like to add this to my winter skin regimen. I live in the north-east where winters are particularly harsh and my skin becomes very dry (even though I have acne-prone, hormonal skin.) I apply right after my daily moisturizer and This adds a layer of protection and moisture without being too oily. I love the Ultracalming line- I use most of the products and this one is a winner. This also makes a great primer!

Best product for sensitive skin

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about barrier repair:

I have tried a lot of moisturizers for sensitive skin, but none comes close to Barrier Repair. It is a life saver and it will change your skin forever. 99/100 products give me sensitivities, but Dermalogica works wonderfully.
Downside? A bit pricy for the quantity.

  • 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,
      The Dermalogica Team

    • A:

      It took about 10 days before the redness on my face disappeared when I started using this along with the Ultracalming line of products including the cleanser and serum. The three together really have me looking years younger though. It was worth the wait. I have been able to add the Daily Microexfolliant, Precleanse and Super Shield 30 without the return of the redness. It was my experience that my skin did have to get used to the products though as I did experience itching in the beginning...just give it a little time.

  • 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?

      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?

    • 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.

      Answered on 6/30/2014 by najiachic from Houston, TX, USA
    • 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.
