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.

Loved It!

By 

from Douglasville, GA

I used a sample of this before we went to the zoo today. I applied my regular makeup afterward. I have VERY sensitive skin and all other sunscreens irritate my face and burn. This didn't at all. It wasn't too thick and it rubbed in well.

I've been using the entire Ultra Calming line for a few months and I'm very pleased that my skin irritations are almost non-existent now.

5*

By 

from London

Love everything about this product, I use it without fail every year on holiday and my face has never burnt. I suffer with acne and it never causes further breakouts. The lavender scent is so soothing and comforting, along with the light consistency it never weighs my face down. I would reccomend this product to anyone! Worth the price.

Not my favorite sunscreen

By 

from Seattle, WA

It felt nice on my skin and protected as I expected it to. However, it left a white cast that I did not like. I will not be repurchasing it.

My #1 Product For As Long As I Live

By 

from Cincinnati, OH

If I could only use one product for the rest of my life, it's the super sensitive shield, hands down. No question. Sun protection: check. Ultra-calming: check. Greasy? HECK NO. I have insanely sensitive skin, and I even used it all over my body for a few fancy daytime events last summer.

Worked for my acne-prone skin and gave it a dewy finish!!!

By 

from Canada

I will never use another daytime SPF lotion ever again, this stuff is fabulous. With my combination skin through the summer and dryier skin in the winter this product has never let me down. A little goes a long way and you must rub it or you'll look like a ghost. I have acne prone skin and this product is the only moisturizer that doesn't cause me to break out, made my skin look better, and protected my face from the sun.

The best sensitive sunblock I have ever used

By 

from Bothell, WA

I have rosacea and ultra sensitive skin. I have tried EVERYTHING or so I thought! I heard Jane's appearance on NPR's How I Built This and looked into Dermalogica products. I was searching for a new sunscreen and was pleased to discover the Super Sensitive Shield. I purchased it and LOVED it. I wear sunscreen every day and it's important to have a gentle formulation. This product moisturizes and started healing my dry, flaky skin so well I decided to try other products in the ultra calming line. My skin has improved tremendously in a short period of time. I am so happy I found you Dermalogica!

Still up in the air!

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

I love the concept of this product as it's catered to sensitive skin. However, it does leave a white cast and I think it may have clogged my pores and caused some breakouts after my workout. I'm a bit cautious to try this again, but will try and update in the future! I do like that it's lightweight and blends in after some time!

      Dear Catherine,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30 is not a brightening cream. If your skin is damaged, a doctor should look at it.

  • Q:

    How often do I need to reapply?: Hi... I understand that this product is a moisturiser as well as a sunscreen. I don't normally need to reapply my moisturiser during the course of a day, but in order to get continuous sun protection, would I need to reapply this product every few hours when I am in the sun, like a regular sunscreen? If this is the case, I am also wondering if using this product on days when I won't be outdoors is a 'waste' of the product... So all in all am I better buying separate moisturiser and spf30 sunscreen, so I can only apply the latter when it's needed?

  • Q:

    how to combat face sweating?: I love this product. Occasionally after use my face will have beads of perspiration which is very noticeable and my hair will be wet from perspiration. Is there a reason for this or another moisturizer from your range I could try?

    • A:

      Dear Irene,

      Thank you for your question. We are glad to know you love this product. However, if you are prone to sweating during the day, Protection 50 Sport SPF 50 is a better option for you. It is water and sweat resistant.
