calm water gel

Weightless water-gel moisturizer hydrates dry, sensitive skin. Refreshing gel formula transforms into a skin-quenching fluid upon application, forming a weightless barrier against environmental assault. Dual Hyaluronic Acid technology works in different skin surface layers to increase and lock in moisture. Apple Fruit Extract and Glycerin hydrate and soften while defending skin against dryness. Cactus Pear Extract helps soothe sensitivity and imparts water-binding properties to help support healthy moisture balance.
Although there is no standard for establishing a gluten-free designation for topical skin care products, independent laboratory testing confirms that this formula surpasses the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) ingestible standards and can therefore be considered gluten-free.

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.

I LOVE this product

By 

from Dallas, Texas

Comments about calm water gel:

Ok, I am super picky about skincare, I'm an aesthetician and I have sensitive, combo, red, acne prone skin! There are so many products I can't use, or use but with adverse reactions. This gel is AMAZING. I love the way it hydrates my skin, the texture is fabulous and absorbs beautifully, calming and hydrating. My new favorite moisturizer hands down.

Buy it!!! You won't regret it!

By 

from Va

Comments about calm water gel:

This is such an amazing product!! Really hydrates my skin specially during this cold season! I like to use more after exfoliating or facials, since my skin is more sensitive and really helps with that

Perfection

By 

from Washington, DC

Comments about calm water gel:

I've been trying to find the right skincare routine over the last couple of months because my skin has gone haywire. I'll admit I was skeptical to try this product because it felt so lightweight. Could it really moisturize my skin? I used it for the first time, in partnership with the defense booster, one evening before bed and the following morning I was shocked. My skin was glowing in ways it never has before. I cannot wait to try more of the Dermalogica products now..... the results are real!

I was sent this product free for testing purposes.

Not my favorite....

By 

from Starkville, MS

Comments about calm water gel:

I loved the cool and gentle consistency of this product, but since I used it at the same as the booster, my face stayed greasy feeling for nearly 24 hours. I couldn't stand it and had to wash it off.

So hydrating!

By 

from Asheville, NC

Comments about calm water gel:

This is so hydrating! I've tried so many products to help my dry skin this winter and using this product twice a day has made major changes. My skin is so soft and calm! When I started using this a week ago, I was breaking out and very dry. This helped so much!

Light and fresh

By 

from Albuquerque, NM

Comments about calm water gel:

I didn't think a product this light would actually moisturize my dry, sensitive skin but I was wrong! My face feels hydrated without a heavy residue and I loved the thin texture of the product. I received this product complimentary to test, but I would definitely buy it again when I run out!

Interesting texture

By 

from KC, MO

Comments about calm water gel:

I really like this gel moisturizer! It's got an interesting texture for a moisturizer, and feels really soothing (almost like aloe vera). I love that it has hyaluronic acid, because my skin tends to be dry and needs all the moisture it can get. I like to use this alone in the mornings, and mixed with the Barrier Defense Booster at night! I received this product for free for testing, but all opinions are my own.

Lightweight moisturizer

By 

from Fort Worth

Comments about calm water gel:

I love how lightweight this is. It is great for under makeup but not heavy enough for my personal preference at night.

I received this product free for review.

Where has this been all my life?!

By 

from Boston

Comments about calm water gel:

Oh. My. Gosh. Seriously, I cannot get enough of this stuff! I received complimentary product in exchange for an honest review, and I can confidently say that this is now one of my go-tos. I'm hooked.

This formula is the coolest - I haven't seen anything like it. It's super smooth and quenches my skin. I just love it. LOVEEEE IT.

      A:

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Our products do not use artificial fragrances. We do not use the term non-comedogenic as what may clog one person's pores may not clog another's. This product is very light weight, however.

    I've been using the water gel as a moisturizer. Before I would mix SPF with my moisturizer but it doesn't feel like that would work with the gel. Should I apply the SPF afterwards?

  • Q:

    Hi,
    I am 41 and been using your products for 2 years (with great satisfaction) mainly from the Smart Age line.
    I was wandering ig I should use also this product, how to apply and what would be the benefits.
    During morning I use in that order:
    Cleansing Gel / Microfoliant
    multivitamin power firm (eyes)
    multivitamin power serum
    dynamic skin recovery 50Spf

    During evening:
    Cleansing Gel / Microfoliant
    multivitamin power firm (eyes)
    overnight repair serum
    super rich repair moisturizer
    Should I add the Calm Water Gel, if so when/after which product?
    Is that too much?

    Thanks

      A:

      Hello Judith,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please use Daily Microfoliant only once a day. You may like Daily Resurfacer as it's sister product for exfoliating. Since you are not using a mist, you can use Calm Water Gel as a hydration step, before serum and moisturizer. Less is more.

      Kind Regards,
      Bernadette

  • Q:

    I noticed your reviews were made by women in the 18-23 age group. I am over 50. I use concentrated serum during the day before applying primer and tinted moisturizer. Would this take the place of the serum? I use intensive moisturizer at night. I also have regular facials with dermalogica products. I also want to know if this will feel "heavy" during our hot summer months?
