calm water gel

Weightless water-gel moisturizer hydrates dry, sensitive skin. Refreshing gel formula transforms into a skin-quenching fluid upon application, forming a weightless barrier against environmental assault. Dual Hyaluronic Acid technology works in different skin surface layers to increase and lock in moisture. Apple Fruit Extract and Glycerin hydrate and soften while defending skin against dryness. Cactus Pear Extract helps soothe sensitivity and imparts water-binding properties to help support healthy moisture balance.
Although there is no standard for establishing a gluten-free designation for topical skin care products, independent laboratory testing confirms that this formula surpasses the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) ingestible standards and can therefore be considered gluten-free.

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.

Awesome product

Comments about calm water gel:

I have very sensitive skin. This is the only product that I have ever used that actually calms the skin and redness. Very lightweight and soothing. I don't go a day without it.

Smooth and light

By 

from Manhattan, KS

Verified Buyer

Comments about calm water gel:

I love this moisturizer. It goes on so smoothly and feels so light. It's like nothing is on your face! I hate that heavy feel you can get with lotion moisturizers, especially when you start adding foundation, etc. And this just smells so good too! Oh- and I suppose most importantly, it works. I have an oily t-zone, but I can't tell you whether this increases oil or not. I wear it at night not during the day.

A genie in a bottle!!

By 

from Brisbane, QLD

Comments about calm water gel:

Amazing power house product - the sigh of relief my skin breathes when i put this product on is enormous!
I use this more like a serum under my skin smoothing cream.
I have chronically dehydrated skin that loves to break out in deep blind pimples on my cheeks and forehead (even though i use a perfect routine).
Hydrating, smooth, calming.
Since incorporating this product they have dramatically lessened!
Amazing under make up but doesn't double as a primer.

Love

By 

from South Carolina

Comments about calm water gel:

I received this along with the booster and I can't decide which I love more! My skin is more hydrated now than it has ever been, I've only been using for a month! It's completely soothes my skin and the formula is amazing. I'm so impressed with the quality. I recieved this completely free from Influenster for product testing. I will definitely be purchasing in the future!!

Love how light it is on the skin

By 

from Nyack, NY

Comments about calm water gel:

I received this to test for free from influenster. I have used it through the cold winter months, and taken it on a trip to Florida to test it in warmer weather. I love the way it goes on, it is light and absorbs quickly. I have extremely dry skin so will reapply throughout the day to keep my skin moisturized, but his is a common issue I have with most moisturizers. I have also been pairing it with dermalogica's Barrier Defense Booster. It has been my go to though since receiving it free to test out.

Amazing instant moisturizing

By 

from Winston-Salem, NC

Comments about calm water gel:

I'll have to say when I saw this product I wasn't sure what to expect. Water gel? How is it going to feel, slimy? I was blown away by how refreshing this product feels after application. My skin feels all around moisturized and not oily like I thought it would be. Even after applying it I wasn't sure how long it would last but I felt the moisture still there after hours had passed. I received this product to try for free from Influenster. All opinions are my own.

I love this product

By 

from Waynesville, MO

Comments about calm water gel:

I think this is so unique! It is super moisturizing but not too greasy or oily. I like it better than a lotion or cream because it doesn't feel quite as heavy as those consistencies do. I got this free for review and am so glad I did!

Combination skin

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about calm water gel:

This product absorbed really well and didn't leave a resume. It didn't leave my skin oily and I didn't break out either. My skin is combination but it didn't moisturize the dry areas on my face enough. My skin felt a little tight in my dry areas. Otherwise this was a good product. I received this product free for testing.

  • Q:

    Hi,
    Can you tell me if this is a good product for acne skin and cloggeded pores that I feel needs hydration. I really want to try it but a couple of the reviews are putting me off. One says it contains a highly comedegenic ingredient. Can you tell me which one and if this is the case. Many thanks.

      A:

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Calm Water Gel is a light weight gel-cream. If you are prone to breakouts and have sensitive, dehydrated skin, this product would be ideal for you.

      We do not use the term non comedogenic because what may breakout your skin may not breakout someone else's skin.

      Kind Regards,

      Bernadette

    Is the water gel oil free? Is the barrier repair oil free? Can they both be used as primers?

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Calm Water Gel is the most light weight option in the Ultra Calming Segment. Try Hydrablur Primer or Skin Perfect Primer SPF 30 on top of Calm Water Gel as a primer step.

  • Q:

    Hi,

    I have been using the Ultracalming cleanser for the past couple of weeks which has helped a lot, however my skin isn't really too dry I get a few cystic acne spots on my cheeks where the redness is and I believe to have post-inflammatory erythema, can you advise if this would be good to use AM and PM after my cleanser?

    Many Thanks,

  • Q:

    I'm 48, worried about dry skin and aging. Skin consultant at Ulta suggested that I use the following
    Precleanse
    Ultracalming cleanser am\pm
    Calm water gel am\pm
    Daily microfoliant, every other night

    I'm still a touch dry in the am after cleansing in the under nose chin area, is there anything that I should add? Also would love something for the undereye and slight wrinkles around face.
