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.

Wish it actually cleansed skin

By 

from Los Angeles

Comments about ultracalming cleanser:

This product would be great if it acted as an actual cleanser as well. I don't like the idea of having to use a cleanser that removes all my makeup prior to using this. Too much work. I thought I'd try this product since the special cleansing gel completely dries out my skin (to the point where it's flaky), but I should've informed myself first before purchasing it. I'll keep it since it left my skin feeling smooth, but probably won't purchase again.

Best Cleanser for Sensitive Skin

By 

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about ultracalming cleanser:

This has been my go-to cleanser for a few years. When I relapse and think I should try another brand, I always come back. The smell is pleasant but not overpowering and it thoroughly cleanses my skin without irritating it. My redness has decreased and it has left my skin very soft.

Only dermalogica product that doesn't ruin my skin.

By 

from Delaware

Comments about ultracalming cleanser:

I never had skin products until I started using dermalogica. It completly breaks me out horribly. I am not allergic to any of the stuff in these products. I have hyper pigmentation from these dermalogica and had a horrible break out covering my enitre face and I even have small pitted scars now. I never really make bad reviews but I literally cannot believe how HORRIBLE my face looks. I don't have sensitive skin but I would say that this cleanser is the best one from this brand. But even then I would never buy any dermalocgia ever in my life. I never had a bad reaction to anything before and I am always testing out new products. Every time I look at my face I am sad because of how bad it looks compared to before. I am really sorry I ever even used dermalogica in the first place. I just hope that my face goes back to normal eventually but I don't know if it will.

WORST CLEANSER EVER

By 

from NJ

Comments about ultracalming cleanser:

I don't know how anyone can categorize this as a cleanser. I have very sensitive skin. It is true this product is cooling and doesn't irritate it. But that is all I can say that is positive. It does nothing to moisturize my cheeks, control oil in the T-zone, or even generally remove makeup. Its like it just sits on your skin and then you remove it and it hasn't done anything. I thought it was just me who felt like this but I met another sensitive skin sufferer in a retailer who had the same experience. Completely ineffective and not a proper cleanser.

  • Q:

    Does this product also help maintain clear skin and clear spontaneous break outs? I get some acne, but not often, and have pink/red skin that is sensitive. I like the clean ingredients in this product, but I want to make sure it can help keep my skin clear and not just calm.

    Thanks
