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.

lovely

By 

from NJ

Comments about barrier repair:

This is the product that is a promise that no matter what your skin is going through this will make it all better. No matter what your skin type just trust this silky little tool to completely change how your skin reacts to the world around it. Cannot recommend enough. Just be careful if you are acne prone because it can cause some little pimples. But nothing terrible, especially when you just use it where you need it (ex- cheeks)

New Favorite

By 

from Washington, DC

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 

from Woodbury, NJ

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!

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Only a doctor can treat and diagnose Rosacea. That being said, our Ultra Calming products may help with the symptoms associated with Rosacea. Like redness, irritation, etc.

      Barrier Repair can be used on the eye area.

  • Q:

    I have combination skin and my skin gets so tight with dry flakes. I used different types of moisturisers for dry skin that was oil based ans it seemed ro dry my skin even more with breakouts. I now started active moist. Could I use the barrier repair on top of the active moist to repair my skin and stop the moisture loss.

      A:

      Hi Charne,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It seems like your skin is very dehydrated. No amount of oil will hydrate the skin. I recommend mixing Skin Hydrating Booster in with your Active Moist. For your reference, if you like oils, Phyto Replenish Oil locks in hydration as well.

      Kind Regards,
      Bernadette

      A:

      Hi Sharon,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. We typically do not recommend to put products on the eyelid. However, Barrier Repair is a healing, repairing shield that can restore sensitized skin. Because of that, it can be used on the eye area if needed.

      Hi Anna,

  • Q:

    I would like to know about the application sequence of super sensitive shield spf30 and barrier repair. Which one first? Or both ways are okay?

    Also, is having barrier repair and supersensitive shield spf30 enough to moisturize skin? Or must i also add in skin smoothing cream?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hello Daniel,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30 is an SPF and moisturizer in one. You can wear it alone, or on top of Barrier Repair, which is an anhydrous moisturizer. Skin Smoothing Cream is not necessary.
