Dermalogica Concept Store

Last week I popped into the stunning Dermalogica Concept Store in Wembley Square to experience a 20 minute microzone treatment. I know Dermalogica as a skin care brand is one of the most popular with South African woman but I had never had the opportunity to try it myself and was advised that this targeted treatment is one of the best ways to be introduced to the product.

During the microzone treatment my therapist did the Dermalogica “Face Mapping” for my skin and then selected the correct products for my skin issues and needs – dryness, dehydration, redness, sensitivity and acne…. Oh joy! She then proceeded to treat me to a mini-facial using the recommended products so I was able to feel (and see) the results immediately. It was a lovely experience and I could feel the difference in my skin – amazing what a few minutes of targeted attention make! I left with a line up of new Dermalogica products that I’m excited to try and a few days into my new skin care routine I’ve already found a few favourites (although I will share more in a detailed review soon).



I’ve never before used an oil-based cleanser (the thought sounds a bit odd!) or done a “double-cleanse” which the Dermalogica skin care regimen is based on but the PreCleanse is a revelation. It helps to dissolve layers of excess oil, sunscreen, waterproof makeup, environmental pollutants and residual products that build-up on the skin throughout the day which is particularly NB in light of the development of long-wearing sunscreens and “24-hour” cosmetics. It’s definitely the easiest way to remove makeup that I’ve tried and I’m loving the new PreCleanse Wipes for those nights when I’m feeling extra lazy about removing my makeup! The new PreCleanse Wipes are launching in Feb 2014 and contain Aloe and Apricot Kernel Oil which attract oil and instantly dissolve even the most stubborn mascara, waterproof lip stains and sunscreens.

Awesome news for fans of this brand is that Dermalogica are offering customers a complimentary gift of a hydration trio set valued at R450 when they purchase Dermalogica products to the value of R1500 (at specific stockists).
