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.

This has changed everything I thought about face oil!

By 

from Salt Lake City utah

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I received this product for free to try and was was super skeptical about face oils. I have super combo skin and everything makes me break out. This changed my mind and everything I thought I knew. I add it to my moisturizer in the morning and at night and if my skin is extra dry I'll put some on a makeup brush and use it to blend my concealer and foundation. It is a moisturized smooth finish and no crease settling. My skin changed in texture in less than a week. I don't think I can live without it!

Great addition to my daily moisturizer!

By 

from Seattle, WA

Comments about barrier defense booster:

Awesome product! I've been using it for about a week and love the way it feels added in my daily moisturizer. Smell is soft and subtle too and I definitely notice a difference when I use this vs when I do not. Highly recommend this product!

Did not expect it to feel so good.

By 

from Huntsville, AL

Comments about barrier defense booster:

*I received this product for free for the purposes of review.*

I've waited a month to write this review just because I wanted to be sure it would really make my skin feel and look different. And it does. My skin is naturally super dry, especially during the winter. I've been adding this to my moisturizer ever day and my skin is noticeably more even, softer, and supple. It's working. I'm hooked. And it only takes 2 or 3 drops into my moisturizer to make a difference. A few times I've added a few drops directly to areas prone to wrinkling and I can feel and see a difference.

Happy user!

By 

from Milford, CT

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I received this product via Influenster to test out and provide feedback, and I was very happy to try it! This product is the perfect additive for the harsh winter weather in New England! I love adding it to my daily moisturizer or to the Calming Water Gel as a bit of added defense. It is very lightweight and clean, but provides a boost of hydration when my dry skin needs it most. One or two drops goes a very long way so the price point is perfect for the product.

Great product!

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I absolutely love this stuff! It's not ultra oily like a lot of the other products out there and it leaves me skin feeling and looking great. It provides more of a glow than an oily finish. Definitely recommend this!

10/10 would recommend!

By 

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I use this with my regular night cream every night before I go to bed. I have noticed a significant difference in the pigment of my skin within the first 2 weeks of using it regularly. I typically have very red cheeks and I have very dry skin. Typically when I wake up in the morning, my skin is so dry that the first thing I want to do is reach for my moisturizer. Since applying this at night, that has become much less of the case!! Absolutely would recommend this!! I did receive this product free for testing but this is my honest review of this product.

Better than expected

By 

from philadelphia, pa

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I make sure to stay away from face oils since my skin is oily, but this product actually makes my skin look hydrated and alive. This doesn't make my skin oily but it gives it that beautiful dewy look. I use this at night because I do use a serum in the morning. I love trying out new products that I never heard of. influenster sent me this product complimentary for testing purposes.

I would buy this product again and again

By 

from Santa Clarita Ca

Comments about barrier defense booster:

Thank you to @influenster & @dermalogica for my complimentary productsI was in much need of some TLC in these winter months.
@dermalogica Barrier Defense Booster which I've been using for a couple of weeks now. I have acne prone skin so trying new products can sometimes make my skin break out. Thankfully so far, this product has not caused any breakouts! I take the barrier defense booster and mix it with my calming gel during the day and mix it with my night moisturizer at night. It truly has done wonders for my skin.

Worth Every Penny

By 

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about barrier defense booster:

I love this product! And when I add a new product to my skincare I do not do so lightly. I will never go back to just moisturizer. I mix my serum in with my daily moisturizer bun putting a few drops on my hand and mixing them. This product makes my skin dewy, even, and gorgeous. I will absolutely buy again and recommend to anyone.
