Dermalogica Dynamic Duo: Skin Hydrating/Refining Masque

Two award winning products by Dermalogica have been re-formulated with the addition of dynamic new botanical ingredients to enhance the effectiveness of Skin Hydrating Masque and Skin Refining Masque. Skin Hydrating Masque addresses dehydrated and moisture-lacking skin and Skin Refining Masque aims to reduce oiliness and refining the appearance of pores.

The new Skin Refining Masque formula consists of natural earth clays and minerals to absorb excess oil, and botanical extracts such as Eijitsu Rose and Lentil Seed reduce sebum production while simultaneously refine the skin texture and reducing pore size. In addition, purifying extracts in this new formula include Black Cumin Seed, Magnolia Bark Extract and Chaulmoogra Oil to soothe inflammation.

Skin Hydrating Masque is formulated with a unique cross-linked Hylauronic Acid to provide moisturisation to skin, boost moisture retention while Glasswort improves cellular lipid production. The presence of Tomato Seed Oil restores the protective barrier function and Lysine promotes plumper, suppler skin.

I was recommended the Skin Refining Masque* for my combination/oily skin type. Although my skin is dry in some areas, one of my main concerns is visible pores and congested skin, hence, Skin Refining Masque is more suited for me.

I’ve been using Skin Refining Masque once per week for the last three months to help clear up congested areas like my nose and cleanse blocked pores. To use Skin Refining Masque, I applied a thin layer of product to my skin, leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water. Skin Refining Masque is a clay based masque consisting of Kaolin and Bentonite clays which have brilliant oil absorbing properties. Zinc Oxide is also formulated in the masque and I found it thoroughly drew out the impurities on my skin, clears and refines the skin surface. My skin feels smooth, purified and revived and I love how my pores look more refined. Skin Refining Masque not only refined my pores, but also balanced the oils of my skin. The changes to my skin were not too drastic, however, I have noticed that my skin condition is looking better after a few weeks of usage.

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque retails for A$61.50 / 75ml and Skin Refining Masque retails for A$59.00 / 75ml.

Which masque are you using at the moment? Does your skin texture change with the season? Which other products do you look towards to accommodate your skin texture?
