I used strictly Dermalogica products for a week and here's what happened | Before & After Acne skin

If you haven’t seen on my Instagram, I’m fortunate enough to be a part of Dermalogica’s Skinfluencer program. They send me products to try out and share with you guys. The second package they sent me was an entire skincare routine tailored for my skin, so I set myself the challenge of sticking to that exact routine for a week using strictly only those products and see what differences there were.

There were some HUGE differences in my skin I am so excited to show you! I’ve included some before and after photos of my skin which is nerve wracking for me as it is a big confidence issue for me, but I think it shows how amazing the routine worked for me and how great the Dermalogica products are.

The Routine

Dermalogica is a brand I’ve always seen as professional and high quality so I was so excited to try this routine.

I would describe my skin as on the dry side and with acne, I spoke a bit about my skin here and a routine that worked for me before.

Daily AM:

Pre cleanse using the Pre cleansing balm, rub the oil into your skin and then massage for a further minute with wet hands to create a milky emulsion. 

Cleanse using the Daily cleanser, lather this up in wet hands and then massage into your skin to remove the remaining make-up and dirt.

Tone using the Clear start all over toner, spritz all over face, neck and anywhere else prone to breakouts.

SPF using the Solar defence booster spf50, apply this liberally every morning at least 30 minutes before leaving the house.  

Daily PM:

Pre Cleanse using the Pre cleansing balm, rub the oil into your skin and then massage for a further minute with wet hands to create a milky emulsion.

Cleanse using the Daily cleanser, lather this up in wet hands and then massage into your skin to remove the remaining make-up and dirt.

Exfoliate with the Daily Microfoliant, pour half a teaspoon of this into very wet hands to form a milky paste and then massage into skin for a minute. If you’re short for time you can mix this into the cleanser instead to do both together and power cleanse.

Tone using the Clear Start All Over Toner, spritz all over face, neck and anywhere else prone to breakouts.

Moisturise with the Clear Start Soothing Hydrating Lotion.

Before and After

This is absolutely nerve wracking for me posting these pictures of my bare face and my skin! These are raw photos with absolutely zero editing so you can see the true difference, I took them with natural daylight too. I think the most improved was my left side, I genuinely couldn’t believe how different my skin looked after just one week! I was so glad I took the photos because it really helped me to realise how well it worked.

So as you can probably see from the photos the main difference it did to my skin was that it reduced the redness a lot. I did come out in a few spots during the week which you can see as well, however they were not painful like they usually are and not very inflamed – Amazing! My redness is an issue I’ve always struggled to find products to counteract, apart from my trusty Sudocrem, but that is very drying.

My skin felt SO smooth as well, which I think is thanks to the Daily Microfoliant. It just genuinely made my skin look so much more healthier, it had a good glow and felt plump. I think I can confidently say it is the healthiest my skin has ever been. My one issue was that I did find that it caused dryness in some areas as the week progressed which I believe was the cleanser. It was disappointing, however when talking to my sister about it she thinks it may be where the products were drying out the acne.

Another thing to note, my cleanser before was the Biore Charcoal cleanser which minimises pores and helps with blackheads, because I stopped using this I did see an increase in blackheads, so the routine didn’t help with that. However Dermalogica do have a Fizz mask product that helps with blackheads which I also own though, so adding that to the routine all my issues should be solved!

Now that I’m not sticking to just these products strictly I started using an oil every other night with my routine and I now have no dry patches.

Positives

  • Reduced redness
  • Smoother skin
  • Softer skin
  • Improved clarity
  • Unpainful spots
  • Brighter skin

Negatives

  • Caused dry patches
  • Didn’t help with blackheads

Overall I am over the moon. I am so incredibly impressed with the Dermalogica products, I’m going to continue to use these to hopefully clear my skin even more.

      Ahh thank you Ellie! It’s so easy to say a product works but it’s different to see actual photos! I love seeing them myself so thought I might as well show them! Thank you so much xxxx

    I love to see that a product or products actually work. You’ve had fab results – you must be so pleased! I’ve used the pre-cleanse and the micro foliant before. Both really nice products! Hope your skin continues improving.

    I’ve heard so many great things about the Dermalogica products and I can now totally see why! Your skin looks absolutely radiant after using these! It’s a shame that you experienced a few dry patches but I’m sure you’ll be able to counteract that with other products! Such a great post, lovely! xx

    Wow, that’s quite a result! The left side of your face definitely is vastly different! I’ve seen these products about loads but never looked into them really but clearly they’re worth it! xxx

      I can’t believe it! They’re definitely worth it in my opinion xx

    Hey Clare! First of all, you look so pretty without makeup. Second, thanks for sharing how great the products worked on your skin. I’m using Dermalogical too, only a couple of products and I see a huge difference in my skin. Can’t wait to try out the full line 🤗

    You seem to have had amazing results. I agree that you can really tell more on one side of your face. My skin is quite dry though so it’s a shame that you found it drying. I’ve never tried anything from Dermalogica but I’ve heard so much about them x

    That’s so great you found something that works for you. I had acne growing up and it’s no fun

    Those are impressive results, especially after only a week of use! My skin has been red lately. This might be a perfect solution!

  10. November 3, 2018 / 5:04 pm

    Dermalogica is my absolute favorite skincare brand! Their products work like magic.

    Wow I can’t believe you only used the products for a week. The results are amazing. Imagine how your skin would be after a month. I’ve heard great stuff about this brand but I haven’t tried it. Great post!

  12. December 4, 2018 / 2:58 pm

    You’ve inspired to me to go out and buy Dermalogica! The before and after photos are amazing xx

    • December 5, 2018 / 4:33 pm

      Aww that’s good to know! I can’t believe it honestly after a WEEK! My skin is even better now a while later xx

  13. March 12, 2019 / 2:41 pm

    I love this brand so much and the daily microfoliant is my favourite product from this range. xxx

  14. March 14, 2019 / 9:41 pm

    I’m a Skinfluencer as well and LOVE Dermalogica products but I don’t have problemed skin so it’s amazing to see your before and after shots!
