In the last couple of years, companies have been coming up with alternative advent calendars for adults, and the most popular ones have been beauty related. While we love the idea of opening a new window every day and finding a beauty product we love behind each one, not only can they be hit-and-miss, they also often only offer tiny sample-sized products. We reckon that your money would be much better spent on some of Dermalogica’s amazing travel-sized products, and here are a few of our faves:
This misting facial spray is one of our most popular products, offering a spritz of soothing moisture to ageing skin which is feeling dry and tight. It’s intensely hydrating and will improve the skin’s overall texture with regular use – in fact it’s rare for people to buy this travel size bottle and NOT come back for the full size version!
Another of our most well-loved Dermalogica products is this facial cleanser, which is perfect start to around-the-clock control of breakouts, comedones and excess surface oils. It’s great for teen skin and gives an introduction to the Medibac Clearing range, which is tough in spots and blemishes but gentle on the rest of your skin.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – this body hydrating cream is SO much more than just a moisturiser! As well as giving the body a rich wash of moisture, it also contains ingredients which will smooth and resurface the skin, getting rid of dead cell debris, and even contains elements which offer anti-inflammatory properties, reducing redness and irritation to less-than-perfect skin.
This body wash is the perfect partner to the cream we mentioned above and will cleanse the body without over-drying the skin. It’s completely soap-free and contains essential oils of tea tree, lemon, eucalyptus and rosemary, as well as the soothingly fragrant essential oils of sandalwood, lavender, orange and clary sage which combine to soothe your senses just as much as it soothes your skin.
One of Dermalogica’s most unique products, this ultra-exfoliating treatment starts life as a powder and is mixed with a little water for form a paste which provides triple-action absorption along with physical and chemical exfoliation, removing harmful impurities from pollutants that have built up on skin throughout the day. It reacts with the water to release powerful enzymes which rejeuvenate and renew the skin and is especially tough on the premature signs of ageing.
