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 would buy again

By 

from Savannah, GA

I use this product and most of the ultracalming line of products. I use this after ultracalming serum concentrate or calm water gel. This is by far my most favorite product. It goes on really smooth and feels great on the skin with no irritation. My skin is typical red and this helps a lot. Be sure to allow your moisturizer to fully soak in before applying. I usually wait 5-10 mins before applying.

Great Feeling

By 

from Wisconsin

This feels great going on, not greasy at all. I hate the feel of anything on my face. I can't wear makeup, many lotions, and sunscreen regularly because i hate how it feels on my skin. This feels truly weightless! I am not sure if it actually makes a difference on my skin but it does keep it moister and love the feel of it.

Finally a product that works for me!

By 

from Arizona

I have had a hard time finding a moisturizer that wouldn't make my skin flare up and would keep it smooth throughout the day. Barrier repair does just that! Even though I was told that it's supposed to be used short term as treatment, I plan on using it for as long as I can. It seems a bit too dry for our Arizona winter, so I used it with the ultracalming serum. For summer though, it will be perfect by itself!

love this product!

By 

from Davis, CA

I used this product along with the entire line of ultracalming products and my redness has decreased tremendously. I love the matte finish it gives after using the very hydrating serum concentrate.

The best if you have Rosacea.

By 

from Tetbury

I suffer with Rosacea and nothing has ever given me soft skin until now. I get very dry and red skin and find it hard to apply make up because of this. barrier repair is amazing and would recommend to anyone who suffers with problem skin like me.

Simply Perfect

By 

from London

I have been using it for over 10 years as I have destroyed my under eye area with over using steroid cream. I never leave without it and allways have a back up tube in my beauty draw.
It stops my skin to get penetrated with harmful items.It feels velvety and soft, I love it!

      Hello Diana,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Barrier Repair is better for oil-dry skin. If you are oily, combination or dehydrated, Calm Water Gel would be a better option.

      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

      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.
