Help fortify sensitized skin and a damaged barrier with this velvety, anhydrous (waterless) moisturizer. Use after toning to help shield against environmental and internal triggers that cause skin stress. Contains our exclusive UltraCalmingTM Complex to interrupt inflammatory triggers that lead to sensitization, while helping to minimize discomfort, burning and itching. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors.
I was previously using Avene Skin Recovery Cream but noticed that my eczema problems returned and so I decided to try out the Dermalogica UltraCalming range of products after it was recommended to me by my beautician. I started with the Dermalogica UltraCalming trial kit then purchased the full sized products and have been using the Dermalogica Ultracalming range since. I am finishing my second tube of Dermalogica UltraCalming Barrier Repair now and intend to purchase another tube of this soon.
I really like the Dermalogica UltraCalming Barrier Repair because I noticed that my eczema breakouts are less frequent and when applied over sensitized spots, the Barrier Repair does not cause any stinging or redness. In fact I find that Dermalogica UltraCalming Barrier Repair is quite soothing, helps calm the skin and because it is a silicone-based moisturiser, it helps seal moisture in my skin and forms a barrier over my eczema spots so they heal faster and do not occur as frequently as before.
I have not experienced any breakouts from this moisturiser. I find it moisturises better than the water-based Avene Skin Recovery Cream. I also like the silicone texture as it glides on very smoothly and my sunblock adheres well to my skin in the mornings.
I would recommend this moisturiser for those with highly sensitive skin and eczema-prone skin types. I am currently using the UltraCalming Mist and Serum Concentrate with the Barrier Repair and I think these three products have been working well for my skin. I will definitely repurchase!
