Makeup & Muses: Dermalogica Age Smart Review


Oh skin care! I have such a battle with skin care and products with skin that I try a lot of things to figure out what works best. There are some products that I totally love and restock in my cabinets all the time, and then there are others that I would never purchase again. 

But it's always nice to be able to try out new things in hopes that you find something that sticks. And I can tell you that the Dermalogica Age Smart has my vote...at least for now. Here are reviews of products that I've been using for about a week now.

The purpose of the Age Reversal Eye Complex is to firm and tone the skin around your eyes. 

Fortunately, the skin around my eyes is pretty taut, but we might as well start early. The retinol serum is supposed to reduce dark circles and puffiness. 

I use it once at night before bed and the skin around my eyes looks just as good as ever.

Another product I use is the Super Rich Repair, which is definitely more tailored to my skin type. 

It is designed to relieve skin from dryness, lines, sun damage, and of course, stress. 

I'm one of those girls who has pretty dry skin, so anything that targets that problem works for me. 

The repair cream was pretty easy to add to my skin care regimen as I could use it both morning and night. 

You can also use the cream on your neck with smooth upward strokes, which is an area where some people might forget about later in life (I know you know what I'm talking about).

Overall, I think these products are very good. I didn't have any adverse reactions when using them, and I can see a bit of a positive change in my skin, albeit it's only been about a week. I would have liked to have been able to pick out products that were a bit more specific to my skin type, but this Age Smart line was still worth trying.
 I rate it: ♥

  1. I like Dermalogica...we used it when I studied beauty therapy. It made my skin soft and clear quite quickly. And the ones I used smelled amazing. I go through products and sometimes they work and other times they don't. Other times they tear up my skin, haha. But, I do enjoy beauty products. Have a great weekend to come :)

  2. Hey Cheryl :)
    I've never used Dermalogica, but it sounds lovely.
    I have extremely sensitive skin, so I've literally been using the same product for 10 years... lol
