      Disadvantages

      Not ESSENTIAL exactly but still rather good x

      This is still after many years available and so it should be. When something works for you why is it the powers that be, discontinue it?

      This is much better suited for those with dry skin but not sensitive skin. I tried this, although it initially was good and worked long term it was just not right for my skin.

      This more as an emulsion than a liquid solution. Its not very clear only when you get it home and then its a little surprise.
      Simply damp your skin with cold or hot water, never hot , as this strips the face of natural oils.
      When the emulsion is activated with water it then foams up into a thick,rich, creamy cleanser,in circular upwards motions focus on the troubled areas of dry skin to relieve the issue and then rinse of throughly with cold or warm water, again not hot!.

      I was surprised at how soft and supple my skin was when I removed the cleanser and also the tone of my skin was so much more smoother than I was expecting.
      The scent isn't great, its not bad but in the grand scheme of skin perfection that's not really an problem and it certianly didn't put me off buying anymore.

      The solution I used twice to three times a week and for 5-6 this served me well.

      On the weboste the experts suggest this is really good for aging skin o for prevention this is really good as well, although I couldn't review that particular aspect.
      You can purchse this is a small bottle or medium so you don't have to waste money or the product if you don't like it.
      This retails at £27 but again, do shop around to compare deals x

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      well, although the dermalogica packaging says 'professional recommendation advised'. i didn't seek any and so perhaps only have myself to blame for not being thoroughly enraptured by this product. i have combination skin that's now thirty years old and in the last couple of years has become very dry and irritated during the winter months, to the point where my face was continually causing me tight, physical discomfort no matter how much moisturiser i slathered on. however, i also have a tendency to blackheads on my nose and chin. i don't have a problem with this product, i just don't find it particularly wonderful. it doesn't create any negative effects, and it isn't at all heavy or oily (in fact it's very light), but i am not particularly aware of many positive effects either, althouhg as i say, this is probably becasue of the combination aspect of my skin. i prefer to remove the product with damp cotton pads or, better still, the muslin flannel that i got with my eve lom cleanser (i don't receommend eve lom either, but the flannel is good!), although it advises you to rinse off. my skin no longer feels irritated, which obviously is a bonus, but because i also have the blackhead issue, my face doesn't feel totally clean either. i am yet to find the ideal cleanser, but i am going to try ponds cold cream as reviews here suggest it's the very thing i seek! in the meantime, i would say that if you have very dry, sensitive skin and no blackheads, you may well like this product. but for combination skin i would think about looking elsewhere.

        Disadvantages

        My skin is going through an erratic stage at present - it went from normal, to oily, and has now started to err on the dry side. More alarming, however, was the big horrible rash my face came out in the other week (probably more information than you needed, but never mind!). Thinking this could be something to do with my excessive love for all things skincare and trying a million different things out on my face, I legged it over to my local salon as I knew it sold dermalogica, I brand I had heard of as being excellent for irritated and sensitive skins, as it does not contain many of the ingredients (eg, perfume) that usually irritate peoples' skins. After looking at horror at my rash, the very nice assistant suggested I cleanse using Essential Cleansing Solution (my usual face wash made my face redder and itchier at the time). It's for drier skin conditions, and is a creamy, non foaming cleanser. You apply it to damp or dry skin with your fingers (in upwards movements, apparently) and rinse off with water. Although it thoroughly cleanses your skin, I was very impressed with how soothing and comfortable my skin felt afterwards - not tight at all. I would even go so far as to say that it would be suitable for normal skin, because you rinse it all off with water. One major plus is that you can use it in the shower, which is mega convenient. The cleanser was one of three products I bought, and I have to say that my rash instantly felt more comfortable and looked less red after using the product - it then disappeared after about three days. I have continued to use this now my face is better and absoultely love it. It is quite pricey at around £18, but you can get it for £16 online at www.courtyardonline.co.uk. Also, Dermalogica salons are happy to give out samples for you to try first.
