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.

AWESOME MOISTURIZER FOR ALL SKIN TYPES

By 

from Syracuse, NY

Comments about calm water gel:

I have a great love for this moisturizer and I am so glad that I tried it. It works as a wonderful primer for under my makeup appliction and its nice and light for day time without feeling greasy or heavy on my face. A little bit goes a long way as well, thats always a plus so youre definitely getting your moneys worth with this product. Bonus? My fiance loves it, too! Men can definitely benefit from this product as well! Pro tip: add a few drops of beauty oil or skin booster to the moisturizer for added hydration and protection while the weather is rough or your having enduring a long day of running around!

I love this stuff!!

By 

from Yorba Linda

Comments about calm water gel:

It's amazing how smooth this product feels. I've always been a fan of dermalogica and this product is no exception. It starts out as a gel but literally transforms into water. It's pricey but effective. I highly recommend it! I received this product complimentary for review purposes.

The lightest gel my skin could ask for

By 

from Pomona, CA

Comments about calm water gel:

I use this everyday, and it has made such a huge difference in my skin! I am always on the quest to find non-greasy moisturizing products for my skin, and this was just that. I couldn't ask for something that would be as protective all at once as it has been skin improving, and I have found the perfect marriage of those things in this. Never going back to any other traditional moisturizer ever again!

I received this product complimentary from Influenster, and am so glad I did.

Very effective

By 

from Marylans

Comments about calm water gel:

I enjoyed using this moisturizer. My only issue is that I'm using finecea and epiduo forte as well, and it did not mix well with having those on my skin (burned terribly.) Not to be held against dermalogica though since everything burns my skin right now lol. Under normal circumstances, I believe this would have worked perfectly, since I've never had issues with it in the past. I received this for free for my honest review, thanks to influenster!

Miracle product

By 

from Oregon

Comments about calm water gel:

I use this every night and it does wonders. The redness on my skin is drastically reduced with each use, skin looks healthy and soft. My sister on law used a product that burned the skin songs her eye, I put a little of this product and the next day it looked so much better! Love this product!

Perfect lightweight moisturizer

By 

from Denver

Comments about calm water gel:

As someone with dry, sensitive skin, I've struggled to find a moisturizer that works for me. I hate the feelings of heavy creams on my face, but this is so perfect. It is light and absorbs super quickly even if my face is still wet. I also like that it isn't overly fragranced. This is a new staple in my skincare routine. I received this product as a complimentary sample from Influenster.

Comments about calm water gel:

The calm water gel in combination with the barrier defense was amazing! Using the two before bed left my face feeling moisturized and soothed and ready to recharge over night. This was perfect for my sensitive skin. I received this item for free to review.

    I'm 48, worried about dry skin and aging. Skin consultant at Ulta suggested that I use the following
    Precleanse

    Calm water gel am\pm
    Daily microfoliant, every other night

    I'm still a touch dry in the am after cleansing in the under nose chin area, is there anything that I should add? Also would love something for the undereye and slight wrinkles around face.

      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.

  • 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

      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,
