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.

Feels light on the skin

By 

from Nyack, NY

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I received this to test for free from influenster. I have used it through the cold winter months, and taken it on a trip to Florida to test it in warmer weather. I love the way it goes on, it is light and absorbs quickly. I have extremely dry skin so will reapply throughout the day to keep my skin moisturized, but his is a common issue I have with most moisturizers. I have also been pairing it with dermalogica's Ultra Calming Water Gel. It has been my go to though since receiving it to test out.

Love!

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I have sensitive skin, especially after a facial or microderm treatment. I'm really loving the dermalogica ultra calming line to help treat multiple triggers behind inflammation. It really helps soothe my skin after a treatment. The calm water gel and barrier defense booster are a must! I add the barrier defense booster to my moisturizer to add those benefits on the daily. Received complimentary for testing purposes.

Left my skin oily

By

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I really wanted to like this product but it was just too much oil for my skin. It didn't absorb well into my skin and I ended up breaking out because of it. I received this product free for testing.

Multi-use product for the dewiest looking skin!

By 

from Santa Cruz, CA

Comments about barrier defense booster:

So, I used this product a handful of ways. Alone, mixed in to my moisturizer and, my favorite, mixed in with my makeup. That's where this product shines, in my opinion. Endlessly on the hunt for makeup that looks like skin, this product add an extra boost of moisture and sheers foundation out to flow perfection. I used it both on myself and clients with great results.

I'm rating the product as a 4 because I agree with other reviewers regarding packaging issues. It leaked in my bag and continues to feel like it's leaking even when it's not in my kit.

I received this product complimentary from Influenster and Dermalogica to test and write an honest review. So here it is
