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.

Super gentle on my skin!

I have been searching for a go to cleanser for a long time. This is the first product that effectively cleans my face without irritating or drying out my skin. I will definitely purchase again.

The best for sensitive skin!

This cleaner has literally been a life saver. I have this awful thing called rosacea, and it behaves however it wants, whenever it wants. It flares up, I get little rosacea "break outs" and my face just turns RED. This cleaner is gentle enough to use morning and night (if I want), and doesn't dry out my skin nor does it leave me greasy. When I put the cleaner on, it literally "cools" my face down immediately. I have used it just on it's own, cleaning my face with my hands, but I currently use it with a sensitive foreo luna 2, and the results are SO NICE. I would recommend this product to everyone!

Great for tight, dry skin

I have been using the Ultra Calming Cleanser for 2 years since it was recommended to me during a facial. My skin is sensitive and dry and often used to feel tight even after washing with just water. Since using the cleanser my cheeks aren't as red, my skin isn't as dry and I no longer have that tight feeling after washing my face. Expensive but a little goes a long way and, in my opinion, worth it.

Extra Calming is Right!

This is the only cleanser I can use on my older sensitive facial skin, there is no irritation and it leaves me with a clear complexion

My new favorite cleanser

5

I was alternating with two another dermalogica cleaners but have switched over to using solely this one. I love waking up and and washing my face with it, its so refreshing. I also like that it seems to work best for me since I use a handful of the age smart products and the retinol.

Calming more than cleansing

This cleanser is great (cooling, calming, soothing) during a rosacea flare-up but I still need to use my micellar water on cotton first to remove makeup.

Virginia

So happy I tried this!

I have always used a foaming cleanser - and the same drugstore brand for quite some time. I have not been happy with my skin for awhile now (redness, dryness in areas, uneven skin tone) so after reading reviews about Dermalogica and also getting a recommendation to try a cleansing cream instead of a foaming face wash, I decided to try to the Ultracalming Cleanser. I am so happy that I did! After only about a week of using it, my skin looks and feels better! Although it is expensive, I think it is well worth it for the excellent results.

Not for sensitive skin

Irritated my skin - would not recommend for people with sensitive skin

Best cleanser

This is my 4th bottle of this cleanser. Good product for face and back (first cleanser which is not causing breakouts on my back ), big size & worth the price. I would recommend to everyone who has sensitive skin.

Is this good for acne prone skin, along with having combination skin, or can you tell me the best product for my skin? Currently on a prescription to treat acne, so I need something that won't make it worse; or to dry me out as I already am. Thanks

Macy

I would like to try your ultra calming line...but there are many products..what is a typical routine for morning and evening. I typically have rosacea. But mild depending on my diet and environment.

I'v been using this product paired with the ultra calming toner for two weeks at the suggestion from an esticician after a recent facial. I generally have very clear skin, just a small problem area on the top right forehead. After these two weeks, my entire forehead is breaking out with actual zits, not my usual little red spots under my skin. Is this product compatible for me and its just working out toxins or should I stop using it? I was trying to give the product 30 days but my skin looks terrible, worse than it ever has.

April

Hello April, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It could be that your skin is purging. However, if you prefer another cleanser, you may like Special Cleansing Gel. Kind Regards, Bernadette

How long should it take for me to start seeing results? I've just purchased this and used it for a couple days and am still seeing the same amount of redness.

Abbey

Hello Abbey, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Everyone is different. It is important to be patient and persistent with the products. Be sure to use it morning and night for best results.

Do you apply this product on dry or wet skin?

Freeda

Hello Freeda, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use this on wet or dry skin. It is your preference. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I've been suffering from cystic acne and can't find anything strong enough to get rid of it (or at least help) that also won't dry out my already sensitive/dry skin.

Kelsey

Hello Kelsey, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Precleanse, Special Cleansing Gel, Daily Microfoliant, Ultra Calming Mist, Breakout Control and Active Moist.
