Dermalogica Skin smoothing cream review | The best moisturiser for dry skin

Dermalogica skin soothing cream review best moisturiser for dry skin

I recently wrote a post where I trialled a skincare routine made up purely of Dermalogica products for a week to see what changes they did to my skin, you can see that here with before and after photos of my acne. Since then they kindly sent me their new and improved formula of their skin smoothing cream to try out, and I was not disappointed!

The product claims to keep your skin hydrated for 48 hours using their innovative Hydramesh technology by retaining water in the molecules in your skin – It’s very science-y which is what I think makes it so great! This 1 minute video here explains exactly how it works which is super interesting. You can tell how much research goes into every Dermalogica product, and the proof is in the results!

The skin smoothing cream comes in the standard white and grey branded packaging. In a big squeezy tube which is great for ensuring you can get the right amount of product out.

The cream itself I wouldn’t describe as thick, but it has a medium thickness to it, enough to feel like it’s moisturising without feeling heavy on the skin which is fab! Sometimes heavy creams can make your face feel really greasy.

For me I don’t find that it has a scent either which I don’t see as a negative really, It can be lovely when products smell nice but adding scents to the formula would probably effect how it works so I see this as a positive more than anything.

I absolutely love the fact that Dermalogica can claim their products to have all of the above!

I would describe my skin as acne/dry and the results I have got from using the skin smoothing cream have been great. It is an all round perfect moisturiser and now an absolute staple for me. It instantly moisturises my skin and leaves it feeling soft. Since using it I haven’t had any dry patches which I get quite often, so overall I am so impressed and happy!

Have you used this before? What is your staple moisturiser?

    I’ve recently become a skinfluencer too and have been absolutely adoring the products! I suffered from some pretty awful adult acne due to being on steroids and the combination of coming off of them and using the Dermalogica products has been pretty astounding, you can barely even tell it was there now! I’m yet to try this cream but it sounds super lovely. A decent moisturiser is always needed in this season and even better than it isn’t greasy, I love how they’re cruelty-free, too! Also you look bloody beautiful without makeup!

    I’ve never tried this but I’d love to give it a go. I was recommended Dermalogica by a skin specialist when I was a teenager, and I still haven’t tried any of their products! Must get my hands on some in the New Year! Thank you for sharing, your skin looks fab! xx Naomi
