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.

Almost perfect product

I would give the Ultracalming cleanser 5 stars if it removed my makeup as good as the Special cleansing gel does. Now I have to use the Special cleansing gel in the evening to remove all my foundation to properly clean my skin and the Ultracalming cleanser in the morning when I don't have any makeup. The texture of the Ultracalming cleanser is so wonderful to my skin and it really works wonders though. I guess I just have to keep one bottle of each gel to cleanse my skin properly.

My favorite gentle cleanser!

I use this cleanser every morning (I use the Daily Microfoliant every night). It has been a great addition to my skincare routine for my maturing yet sensitive skin.

Not quite perfect for me

I have hypersensitive skin. Most times, my skin likes this cleanser, but sometimes it does not. I am still searching for the ultimate cleanser for my skin. I am impressed with the large 16.9oz size, so it will last me a really long time.

Does the job!

It is very gentle but does remove the make-up, dirt and grime. You do not need to worry about not rinsing it off thoroughly. You can just wipe it off.

Great product

I use this face wash every morning and night before using the daily micoexfolint. For someone who has very sensitive skin, this is perfect. It is light, not really scented, and leaves my face feeling clean and fresh.

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.

My 15 year old daughter has been using the clear start cleanser. She is prone to breakouts and after using this for 12 months it has really helped, but she does find it quite drying. Our local salon has recommended she use the ultra calming face wash instead, but I'm not sure whether this will keep the acne at bay. I don't want to buy a full size if it isn't compatible, what would you recommend?

Deb

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If Breakout Clearing Skin wash is keeping the acne away, she should keep using it. To combat dehydration she can mist with Breakout Clearing All Over Toner and moisturize with Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

how long am i meant to leave the cleanser on my face before i wash it off?

Emily

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can work it in for about a minute. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Does this product remove make up as well as the cleansing gel?

Tina

Hello, For best results, remove makeup with Precleanse. Cleanse the skin with Ultra Calming Cleanser. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Can you use ultracalming gel while on epiduo

Jazzyc

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, you can use Calm Water Gel. Kind Regards, Bernadette

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

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, you may like this cleanser or Special Cleansing Gel. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi Is this product suitable for rosacea?

Laura

Hello Laura, 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. Kind Regards, Bernadette

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
